Hi Shaun, perhaps it’s who has contacted Intervention for help. Could be that “color” just hasn’t went there. I personally have watched quite a few of black interventions. As well as Mexican and Purto Rican. I know you’re an avid watcher like myself, and love how much the show has helped so many. But I just don’t think that it’s because of any kind of screening that prevents the different races from being aired. I think it’s because those families or those friends haven’t contacted the show.
