Theatre Company Responds to Racist Backlash Following Black Woman’s Casting as Joan of Arc!


R
eader previously it was announced that three-time Tony nominee Condola Rashad would star on Broadway in Saint Joan, playing the iconic role of “Joan of Arc.” However, it was the first look photo, released this weekend by Manhattan Theatre Club, that caused quite the stir( you can read about it here)


Its amazing how these people get mad when a person of color plays a Caucasian roll but Caucasians have been casted to play many rolls on film and television that are historically Black. Even the Bible describes Jesus as having skin of bronze and hair like wool. So why is he depicted as a white guy with long flowing hair? Other examples are white people playing Pharaohs in Egypt. Recently they even white washed queen Nefertiti. Face it, this is white people asserting its white supremacy.
