SO I GUESS FOR PC LIBS, ONLY A BLACK CAN PLAY OTHELLO?!?
A hearing actor playing a deaf character is tantamount to putting a white actor in blackface,” said Linda Bove, a deaf actress and board member of the Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts, an advocacy group for minority, disabled and deaf artists.
I GOTTA SUGGESTION: HOW ABOUT ONLY DEAF PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO SEE THE DAMN PLAY!?
I MEAN, WHAT'S THE FREAKIN' POINT OF A PLAY IF NOT TO INSPIRE EMPATHY ACROSS A WHOLE WIDE RANGE OF PEOPLE?
IF HEARING THEATERGOERS CAN EMPATHIZE WITH A DEAF CHARACTER THEN A HEARING ACTOR CAN PLAY ONE.
- THE WHOLE ISSUE MAKES ME SICK.
- AND I THINK MOST AMERICANS ARE SICK & TIRED OF PC BS.
- ONE MAJOR REASON WHY IS THAT EVERY TIME WE CRITICIZE OBAMA WE'RE CALLED RACISTS.
- IN 2010 A LOT OF PC LIBS ARE GONNA FIND OUT HOW OUT OF STEP THEY'VE BECOME.
