    'lack of diversity' on TV damaged her self-esteem as a child

    But Game Of Thrones' Nathalie Emmanuel is most thankful for roles that promote diversity, because the lack thereof on TV during her own childhood directly affected her self-esteem.

    'For me, when I was growing up, not seeing anyone on television that looked like me or that I could identify with was really hard, and that can affect someone's self-esteem hugely.'

    Were tempted to suggest a conspiracy here but its just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply cant conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    She's young, so I don't see how she can say she never saw anyone who "looked like her" on TV growing up. There were a ton of really good shows featuring black and Hispanic families when she was a child. She grew up in Great Britain, so maybe it was different there, but American TV had a ton of diversity in the 80s and 90s.

    What did people blame their low self esteem on before the TV was invented?
    "Is Uncle Monello homeless?"

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    As long as diversity means - and ONLY means - more black people - I can't be bothered. I've had far too many friends from too many cultures get run over by diversity because - while they were Arab or Indian or Vietnamese or Colombian - it made no difference. Diversity didn't mean them at all.
    Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.".Daniel Webster
