When underage black girls date men who are 10 or 20 years older than them, why are the girls blamed for being “fast” instead of the men being called out for preying on children? Why is love not enough when it comes to raising kids? Is the absence of people of color in the AMC series Mad Men an accurate portrayal? Or is the series just trying to duck the race question? Carmen Van Kerckhove, Tami Winfrey Harris, and Maxwell Reddick discuss.
