The Hills: Where Are All the White People?


Anybody ever watch "The Hills?" Oh that's right. I have a question. Where in the hell are all the white people on The Hills? All I see is diversity, diversity, diversity! Oh that's right, I don't. The Hills is totally the new "Friends" where everyone and everything is white white white. It's like the KKK is producing this show. I was having a conversation with a buddy of mine, Eddie Bobby, and after we were done trying to solve the Greenhouse Effect, close up the ozone layer, and stop that war in Iraq we got into a conversation about how "white" The Hills actually is. How is nobody talking about this? Isn't this kind of an issue? Where are the black people? Where are the Asians? Where are the Spanish? Or is it Latinos? I can never keep up. I feel like J. Lo messed me up on that one. Anyway, where is everyone else? Are we supposed to believe that LA is all white? I've been before. It isn't. Do the skanks on The Hills know it's ok to have non-white friends? Does Lisa Loveless hire whites only? Is Le Deaux only for rich white people? Does anyone actually do work at Bolthouse? Fine, I threw that one in there because I've always wondered. It's like this show is filmed in 1952.

I mean, sure, Frankie is not 100% white. Frankie also has only recently been featured on the show and may have had one or two lines. I'd like to see The Hills become a bit more diversified. If there's a season 4, I hope they write some other nationalities into the script, yes script. I don't care what Elodie says about it not being scripted. I'd love to watch Lauren and Audrina trying to interact with some African American people. Scratch that. I'd pay money to see Whitney interact.

Anyway, has anyone else ever noticed this? I mean, I know Steve Sanders (aka Spencer) is black, but in a different kind of way. I'd say let's boycott The Hills, but let's face it...it's my bread and butter at this point.

if they'd just but your beloved Cami in the show, problem would be SOLVED.

Well on the MTV aftershow...during the aftershow with jesse and Dan (while it was still ONLY in Canada) they used to have a MINORITY report and count the seconds minorities got ON camera ...you should dig that up. Its good times. remember its filmed in Toronto, the most ethnically diverse city in the world so to see only one race- its just beyond radical.

YOU ARE IN MY HEAD! I've totally been wondering this for weeks. I think it adds to The Hills appeal. They are dumb, rich, white girls who get drunk and talk about their "problems." You take the white out of that equation and it's just not as funny. You gotta love the spoiled.

DUHHHHHHH- Everyone is amazed that it isn't brought up more. LA is full of Mexicans, Blacks, and Latinos, and Frankie Delgato is really the only person feautred. helllla annoying!!
Then again, these airheads don't got ANY flava in 'em. Spence and Brody wish they did!! LOL. (I know they'll read this) Spencer and Brody pretend they so gangsta.
Puke.

Anyway, Hollywood is still racist, and there's still a glass celing. How about Ryan Seacrest got a star on the walk of fame before Ricky Martin? ok, bad example, but you get the point....?

I agree. But I must say your post about the issue is hilarious and the guy in the picture (I'm guessing it's you) looks hot.
