as you and I both just said above when they do include us we are thugs, first to die, etc. While America is a "melting pot" most groups remain segregated and live by people who mostly look like them. So I can not fault a writer for writng from his reality. Moreover,we can not expect white people to create characters for us..hell I don't expect white people to do anything for us. They can not write realistic black character because they don't come from the black experiance and know how diverse we are. The best solution I can think of is for more black and white writers to colab on projects and offer both insight.
