Earlier this year, the creator of HBO’s Silicon Valley got defensive about the idea that his cast isn’t diverse enough, and not for the first time. He told the Hollywood Reporter:

"I  don't think you do any service by pretending [Silicon Valley] is half  female or half black. And not to pin bouquets on ourselves here, but I  think we brought some attention to the gender imbalance by doing this  show."

Ahhh,  yes the all important act of “raising awareness.” Because before this  show, everyone thought that Silicon Valley didn’t have a fetish for  young, white, nerdy men at all...
