  1. I'm not trying to get an emotional rise out of you, just trying to explain that i think you're over egging the problem, but i don't know where you live, so it may be different where you are. You're in America? Here in London, there are still many white actors and many white actors are playing white characters and race relations have never been better.
  2. In that post I said that you can learn something from reading. I didn't say that you shouldn't read what you don't like. So I ask you again, where did I say you shouldn't read what you don't like? Rob
  3. I don't have children, but at least I make people happy singing. Not sure how that qualifies as fucking u the world, but I think you're projecting. Apart from posting negative reality all the time, what do you do to make people happy?
  4. You can still see Hamlet being played by a white actor at the Globe theatre in London, for example, and plenty other plays featuring white actors. I do think you are being too emotional.
  5. Shame you can never produce any evidence to back up your CRT claims. You come across as being the type of person who thinks that only you have the answers.
  6. There are still lots of white people playing white characters on the stage, Mac, so no need to get too emotional. There's still plenty on the stage to keep you happy and you don't even have to look hard. When was the last time you went to see a good quality play, anyway? All this talk about "replacement" is over the top being too emotional.
  7. How long did you spend working for your Jewish banker masters, skitzorat?
  8. Some things were better in the past, agreed, but there were a lot of things wrong with the past that aren't with us today, but I agree it would be good to have the best of both worlds.
  9. You want to be politically correct, but like i said, I don't play that game because I'm happy to see a white person play a black character like Othello. I'm not woke, but you are. You want to be politically correct. You whinge and whine about cultural appropriation. I don't. As far as race relations are concerned, I would tell my children things have never been better. I remember what things were like in the 1970's. They're much better now. You want to go back to how things were in the past.
  10. No, I'm only doing what you're doing - highlighting the absurdity of racial identity politics.
  11. You're talking about casting but even here, if you just want to focus on that, I see nothing wrong with a black lady playing the role of white character like Anne Boleyn. By your logic, then, it would also be wrong for a white person to play great black role, such as Othello in Shakespeare's play, but that would be absurd and only bowing to the political correctness crowd, which I suspect you are a closet member thereof. Regarding singing technique on its own - singing technique has nothing to do with skin colour. A person doesn't have to be white to sing a top C, for example.
  12. Again, that's to do with casting, and nothing to do with an ability to act or sing. Acting and singing, in and of itself, has nothing to do with skin colour. What you're on about is casting - totally different kettle of fish.
  13. Perhaps you remembered it wrongly. If you quote anything I'd said that promotes identity politics, I'd like to see it, but it's not something you'll be able to find because I've never identified with any label. Even as a singer, i don't adopt labels. Labels are for pigeons. I always try to present a balanced picture. If I mention white on black prejudice, I'm always happy to say that it can be the other way round, so no, I don't make capitalise out of racial abuse. Racial prejudice and abuse is wrong, period.
  14. The things you're talking about are things to do with casting, which have no bearing on how good a singer is technically. Skin colour does not bestow a person with a better singing technique.
  15. I was asked if I was ever a victim of abuse because of the colour of my skin. If I'd have said no, I'd be lying. Did you want me to lie? And btw, I've experienced abuse from both whites and blacks, but the vast majority of black and white people are not like that. But I don't play the victim card and use it for any political agenda or to blame an entire race that I don't like. I like all races, and see people for what they are by their character rather than what their skin colour is.
  16. I don't play the victim, though, for trying to push a political agenda. I don't have any political agenda at all. Not interested in politics, let alone identity politics!
  17. Sure there are differences between people, some people are short, some tall, etc., and etc. and etc., but it doesn't mean one is better or more evolved and advanced than the other. I'm don't subscribe to identity politics.
  18. I wasn't being serious, just mocking the idea that the white man is a superior being. God isn't interested in placing one skin colour above another.
  19. I do my best, but I leave it to others to decide how well I do an artist.
  20. Races are largely a hive mind. If you want to understand why race is a concept, you need to study the man outside of the social construct, which is what artists do.
