It has been criticized because most people in the show are White. Friends or Seinfeld White (but no Jews). I honestly hadn't noticed. 99% White is my daily existence here in Moncton. But, yeah, New York, where the show is set, is much more diverse.
One of the writers, Lesley Arfin, has a nasty tendency to make some racist jokes. Let me correct that: racist jokes about Blacks. But it is OK, the President is Black. Right? Yeah, no. Sorry.

Update: Here is Lesley Arfin hanging out with red heads. Visual proof she is not a gingerist

And her letter carier is Black (and oddly fat!)...
Update: Lesley Arfin with Black person at a party (the lack of smile is out of respect). Lesley Arfin's sister using the N word. Lesley Arfin only likes to write about herself, so expect Girls (HBO) to reflect her non racist racist views.
