Trina McGee, star of’ Boy Meets World’, said she was asked to turn off the’ black meter ‘ while filming the ABC sitcom.

Creative ways. “Maybe you come to my house and the food is different or it’s different,” McGee said.
“I think most people in the comments on social media say they’re not mentioning it,” he said, “but I say they’re mainly white people. Interracial couples want it to be talked about.”
