Cinderella Play CANCELED because the cast was “too white”

Has racism gone too far?

A suburban Minneapolis theater company has canceled its production of “Cinderella” because the cast was “too white”

“It was 98 percent White,” the theater’s director, Michael Brindisi, said of the show’s actors Wednesday. “That doesn’t work with what we’re saying we’re going to do.”

Brindisi said he considered to recast but then decided to “Scrap this and start fresh with a clean slate”

In a statement made by a diversity consultant the production company hired, “After careful consideration and with our ongoing commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, we have made the decision to cancel our upcoming production,” it states.

“In addition to changing future programming, we are establishing new pre-production protocols. We will be inviting and paying [Black, Indigenous, People of Color] artists to analyze the production with our creative teams through a new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion lens.”

    Does this mean we can cancel Black Panther for being to black?

    If a play was cancelled for “being too black” that would come with a mob of hate and backlash, because that’s racist. Just as this is. If you want to end racism you don’t become racist yourself.

    You know, before Obama was in office, our country was thriving. All ethnicity had their chance to do and become anything they wanted to if they pushed hard enough for it. Its up to any individual to become who and what they want to be..no one is stopping them. Look into the history of achievements of all cultures, they proved they can do anything if they want it bad enough.

    Plus this racism and slavery shit has got to stop! If your going to bring up slavery–Start by the sex trafficking thats going on! child labor, still in other countries. EVERY Race were slaves at one point in history. READ YOUR HISTORY BOOKS.. oh thats right–the left is changing that too. They are trying to rewrite history and they think taking statues down will do it. NOT or destroying military graves, NOT. That makes people stronger. Stopping this show is ridiculous and stupid, my God!! get over yourselves, unreal. WHY DO ANYONE LISTEN TO THESE IDIOTS. Stop fearing them. They live on fear, without fear they can lose power. So stop giving them power

    According to their own standards wouldn’t putting any black characters in a European Folk tale centuries old be ‘cultural appropriation’? These liberal leftists are literally chewing their own heads off in a mind trap they secured around their own necks. ????
