Example of Racial Diversity: Firefly

This series qualifies as an example of racial diversity because of the main cast, which include African-American actors Gina Torres as Zoe Washington and Ron Glass as Shepherd Book, and Brazilian-American actress Morena Baccarin as Inara. Firefly is often described as a literal ‘space-western’, and is the creation of Joss Whedon, and is named after the type of spaceship that the main characters all live on. It had a single season on air, with a movie, Serenity, coming after it. It should also be noted that the show made heavy use of Mandarin Chinese in both the crew members’ vocabulary and the labels on various parts of the ship and the crates it would often hold, as well as on clothing that the crew members wore.
