I suggest you ...

provide content with more diversity - people of different ethnic/racial backgrounds etc. Communities are too WHITE!

We live in a very diverse society and the shows have almost only caucasians. That's not the world I live in or work in. And so it makes the story's even more unrealistic.

        First of all I'm black and I see black people in 100% of these movies Always in some prominent role or at least with a speaking part. Black people are Not everywhere in large numbers. There are some places in America where really and truly, blacks do not live.

        I saw one movie where the judge, police chief and the mayor was one black guy in a town that was 99% white.
        I see it all the time and it seems, to me, patronizing.
        What I'd like to see are more Asians and Hispanics.
        It'd be nice to see their culture too.
        Maybe 'they' should complain more.
        And for blacks who still feel left out even though we are in 95% of whatever is produced, movies, TV, commercials, why not make your own movies ?

        I'm black and I see black people in 100% of these movies. Often it is grossly unrealistic. We are not every.
        In one movie the judge, police chief and mayor was the same black guy....in a 99% white town.
        C'mon.

        The Holidays are a time when families come together, and during the Fall months I look forward to tuning into your channel and watching your movies, however, I feel that it would be fair to the viewers that watch your Hallmark movies to include African Americans with lead parts. African Americans make your ratings go up just as much as your Caucasian viewers. Your movies are wonderful and enjoy watching them and hopefully you might take this suggestion into consideration. God bless you all!

        Each year it bothers me more and more to "not" see main characters be anything other than Caucasian. We have Asian children and while your movies are sweet, it would be so much better for our family to see others represented. Why not more African Americans or Asian Americans, for example?
        It bothers me so much this year, that I really can't watch like I used to. Each year, I watch less and less.

        I would like to see more diversity. How about Asian Americans or African Americans?

        MNow that you finally have a Hallmark TV Channel Christmas movie that actually features African Americans as the principal characters - even though you have chosen a classic film story previously made, "The Preacher's Wife - now it's time for you to film and to feature several new originally produced Hallmark feature films depicting African American principal characters, as well as Latinos and Asians and American Indians, Americans all - not only for Christmas, but for
        other holidays, as well as situational stories about everyday life as experienced by American people of colour. Like white Americans, we graduate college, become professionals in various fields as well as regular working folk, we fall in and out of love, care about our families, fight for our country, and make a difference in many people's lives every day. Lots of us enjoy both Hallmark channels, but I''m sure we would watch even more if we could see ourselves in your heartrending TV movies. If I can add more perspective, please do call me. I want to help!

        I rarely see any minorities in any of your Christmas movies. Given the diversity of people in the U.S., you would think your network would be more sensitive and begin changing up the lineup of movies from year to year. I have stopped watching the hallmark channel for this reason. I hope someone will actually read this and do something about it

        I think you have a good line up but in a country with so many different groups I think you should highlight that with shows that match the diverse culture of this country and your viewing audience. Please Add more diverse shows along with those that provide historical content.

        If you want me to watch this channel please include more content, very relevant content for the African-American viewers thank you

        How about shows with American Indian actors. I see more Hispanic/Latino and black actors but rarely any American Indian actors.

        With everything that is going on in the news, we need programming that reflect everyone of all ages, gender and races.

        I've enjoyed Hallmark movies for years but my only issue is that I don't see people of color (Africian Americans, etc.) starring in any of these movies. They're co-starring on occasion but have small roles. There's a lot of talent out there, so I know that's not the problem. Please look into making this happen in the near future.

        I agree...it would be nice to see people who look like me in the film offerings. That's the main thing that makes me consider bypassing, otherwise I LOVE feel-good films.

        Our family love the Hallmark channels, the shows are good, wholesome and suuport our family values but we see very little african-american images.
