Girl Meets the Great Lady of New York was nice but too patriotic. So much left out about the immigrant experience and how Americans have truly dealt with immigrants/refugees in the past. It isn’t as idyllic as its portrayed. The episode paints America as this land of promise and freedom, traits that are conditional and not equal for everyone. And I love how it took a “multicultural” episode to see more people of color on the show despite the fact that it takes place in New York City, a very diverse place.
Oh, and Ava’s Cuban impersonation was….too much. Sad thing is she could’ve stayed blonde and normal and still been Cuban. Shocking, I know…….
