Glee & Minorities

by Christine Becker

In this episode of Glee, Sue Sylvester has been given co-directorship of the Glee club, and she starts by separating out the minority characters into their own group because, she says, Will Schuester hasn't given them enough opportunities to be featured. This is a reflexive moment because, of course, the show itself was guilty of this. And note how Artie's disability trumps his whiteness to qualify him as "other," while Rachel's Jewishness does not.
