Episode: Season 2, Episode 6
Whiteness Rating: A spotless set of elbow-length gloves

You know you're watching a hella white show when there is a freakin' debutante ball involved (looking at you, The O.C. and Gossip Girl). Despite all of Lorelai's resistance against her family's white privilege ass background, Rory agrees to "come out"—white dress, elbow gloves, the whole damn thing—while surrounded by other white girls who whole-heartedly believe debutante balls are a make-or-break in society type of function. Also, there's a fan dance in this episode and you can't help but laugh at the elite silliness of it all. —Kristen Yoonsoo Kim
