The Daily Grind Video

Today, 24 years ago, the first episode of Seinfeld premiered. It was called “The Seinfeld Chronicles,” and it didn’t feature any prominent black people in the episode.

This would become a trend for the show.

Listen, Seinfeld is one of the most iconic shows of all time. And it deserves its iconic status; the many adventures of Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer are still funny to this day.

But the show had a diversity problem. There was really only one reoccurring black character, Kramer’s lawyer Jackie Chiles, who was a take on Johnnie Cochran.

So when celebrating the anniversary of Seinfeld, we thought we’d give a shout out to the ones who have rarely gotten love: the 19 black people who appeared on the show from 1990 to 1998, the show’s last season.

(Ed note: we’re pretty confident this is everyone. But if we missed someone, drop a name in the comment section).
