University play shut down by playwright because actors are ::::gasp:::: white!! He writes (as he heads to his safeplace)
You should know that what you are doing is connected to a very painful history of egregious misrepresentation and invisibility, and is incredibly hurtful. Hurtful to a community for whom opportunity and visibility is critical, and also extremely hurtful to me personally as a flippant denial of Asian heritage as a relevant and valid component of one’s humanity.
It hurts me to my core. I couldn’t stop myself from crying when I saw the photos and realized what was happening. It is embarrassing, humiliating, and demoralizing to be so casually disregarded.
I therefore insist that you immediately (1) recast the play with ethnically appropriate actors, or (2) shut down the production entirely.
Someone get that boy a binky!
If you turn on the CC, the movie titles for the clips are listed.
President Barack Obama said suggestions that the U.S. impose a religious test on Syrian refugees are “shameful” and un-American, lashing out at Republican presidential candidates, including Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz, who have called for accepting only Christians and excluding Muslims.

Heck of a job, B…..
oh fuck that shit
And it only gets better …
President Obama walked in late Sunday on a moment of silence being held by world leaders in Turkey to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris. […]
Mr. Obama walked in after they had begun, and took his place next to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
When the leaders began their working session, Mr. Obama said the Paris attacks show “there is a strong link between economy and security.”
In a reference to the Syrian refugee crisis, he said “society has not passed this exam with good grades.”
Heck of a job, Barry!
It should be noted that none of the tired, old Democrat candidates could bring themselves to say Radical Islam.
And yet, there are Americans that will actually vote for these morally vapid poltroons.
With many thanks to John Bradley
As parts of Paris are still awash in blood, there is something sinister in seeing that the top hashtag last night on Twitter was “Terrorism has no religion” and this morning it is “#MuslimsAreNotTerrorists”
If I were a Muslim and not radical, I would be working my a** off finding other like-minded co-religionists to work with any authority to root out and destroy my radical brethren committing evil in my religion’s name.
But no, we get the apologia from the usual suspects and taqiyya from Muslim leaders.
We even have Leftists in the US who immediately start blaming the “right wing” for “violent rhetoric” (looking at you, Salon) and the spoiled brats of the Mizzou are upset because everyone is looking to Paris instead of them.
My disgust meter is going to have to register higher than eleven.
Worth the replay
This is every movie cliche that starts “it can’t worse”
Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” President Barack Obama seemingly downplayed the threat of ISIS in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that aired on Friday’s broadcast of “Good Morning America.”
Stephanopoulos asked Obama if ISIS was gaining in strength, to which Obama denied they were.
“I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” Obama responded. “What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave, but you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
Then, it does.
She thought if she stared at the horizon long enough she would see the cliffs of the land she left.
Foolish, she chided herself, yet continued to stare.
“Are you going to continue to lurk behind me or finally speak?”
“Mistress, I merely wait in fullness. When you wish to continue your journey, I will guide you.”
She turned, brows furrowed, “All I wish is to return, even as I know I cannot. My journey has surely ended.”
He said nothing, not a raised eyebrow nor lip corner.
He reached up and set the wheel in motion. “You are wrong.”
Now, your turn.
