Racism is alive and well and here in the US.

 

https://www.dailywire.com/news/45648/nyc-casting-call-says-white-artists-will-be-paid-frank-camp

 

Underneath the "rehearsal" heading, the call stated that white actors who were cast in the show would participate in a mandatory "anti-racism training" session. That training session would not be mandatory for actors of other races.

Under the "compensation" heading, the call stated that actors of color would be paid more than white actors.

The original text under the "rehearsal" and "compensation" sections read:

Please note we are working on organizing a short (3 – 4 hour) anti-racism training for the creative team and ensemble in April – to help us address power dynamics and reduce harm within the creative process. This training will be open to all ensemble members and creative team members, but will be mandatory only for white ensemble/creatives.

Meanwhile here I am, saving my pennies for a sailboat one day.  I wonder if I can get a POC discount?

You wish!

 

Btw, are they implying that POCs cannot be racist?

I wonder if the people who thought this was a good idea have actually looked at the state of affairs in Zimbabwe and South Africa right now?  Because that's what happens when you swing too far in the opposite direction.

Correct

 

This may be worth its own thread.

The real issue is staring me right in the face: my deep mahogany skin.

Colorism – the prejudice based on skin tone – has stunted the romantic lives of millions of dark-skinned black women, including me. We are not as valued as our lighter-skinned counterparts when seeking romantic partners, our dating pool constricted because of something as arbitrary as shoe size.

I can play the part

 

 

Of course its not racist. All it does is equal the playing field just a tad.

 

This is everyday life for people of color, it just is understood,not written on the door now.

Image result for racism in america as a track meet
