What if the show involves non-humans instead of races? Would the non-humans be considered a different "race". Bojack Horseman is probably the best example I can think of, in that the show features humans AND anthro-animals side-by-side but isn't about the struggle of one or the other fitting into a modern society.
I would say no. This test is more about representation of real world races.
What about works where race isn't ever the main focus but is brought up frequently? Would those qualify or not?
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has three non-white main characters along with several recurrers, and is primarily about romance and mental illness, but also frequently mentions race.
Teen Wolf could count for this in Season 3B onwards with the addition of Kira to the main cast. You have Scott (Mexican) and Kira (Japanese-Korean). There was also Danny for the first three seasons (Native-Hawaiian) but he was never promoted to a main character.
...Then add it?
Likely? I guess? Is this not certain then?
Note that while TNG had recurrer Whoopi Goldberg (African-American) and regular Marina Sirtis (Greek parents), both of these characters were human aliens.
Correction: Greek is "white" (Caucasian, European) unless "white" is Anglo-Saxon. Also, Dianna was half-human.
