This has been my observation for a few years - anyone else notice that few of the young (say, under 35) white women on American TV have dark hair (or even medium brown hair)? Okay, there's Katy Perry, who actually is a natural blonde. Olivia Wilde, surprisingly a natural blonde. Zooey Deschanel might be a natural blonde. Okay, show me I'm wrong, or muse about why I'm right.

Zooey Deschanel isn't a natural blonde.


The girls on Modern Family aren't blonde.

Lea Michelle. Kat Dennings.

I can't think of many other young actresses, blonde, brunette, or otherwise.

WildCard is on TV?

Okay, I concede on Zooey and Sarah Hyland (not Ariel Winter). There's also (beautiful) Nina Dobrev and Emily Rata(whatever), but they're both sort of European. I'd thought of Kat Dennings and Lea Michele, but they have a caveat, Jewish ancestry, dark hair coming from a Middle-Eastern past. Many non-Jewish/non-Mediterranean young white women have natural medium or dark-brown hair - where are they on American TV?

I think there is a good even mix.

Not really. Just learned Jenna is part Lebanese. Bush is (I just noticed) only brunette sometimes, and I already knew Bilsen is somewhat Jewish (and, by the way, not aging well).

Selena Gomez, literally half the girls in the disney channel set. For that matter, half the girls on the MTV tv shows like Teen Wolf, Finding carter, Awkward, etc. Do you need me to look up that actresses names?

What does being Jewish have to do with this tread?
