REALITY TV….Matt Yglesias reports today on a study showing that although black and white TV tastes continue to converge, one large area of difference still remains: blacks don’t like reality TV.

The purported reason is the lack of black characters on most reality series, which seems reasonable enough, but I wonder if there’s another one as well: for an awful lot of blacks, reality sucks. For whites, Survivor is an entertaining diversion, but for many blacks it might just be a little too realistic for comfort.

Just a thought.
