The group called on the school to recast the role with some of “the many talented brown and black female students,” at Ithaca.

I don't think "blacking up" would help much in this situation

I’d love to see a Quasimodo in full Pulp Fiction gimp gear! That would really shake up the production! Then no one (maybe) would bitch about the skin color of the actors, and all focus on the hunchback. It might be good.

Can people really be so stupid they can't see all this 'facism is bad' crap is sterilizing all peoples into one 'type' - just what the One World Order wants? WTH?

'They' WANT one people, one religion, one culture, etc - and WHY? Because we'll be much easier to CONTROL.

People need to REJOICE in the ethnicity. Celebrate their differences. You can do all that and not 'offend' anyone unless they're too stupid to see what sheep they really are.

Talk about asshats.

The world will eventually be one language, one culture, no borders. Evolution is inevitable, embrace it.

Perhaps then people will truly learn to work and have empathy for one another despite class, economic, and social status. Religion will be a thing of the past and the final barrier keeping mankind from living in harmony w one another.

It must be tough to see the "epitome of whiteness" and feel so jealous. Sometimes I wonder if minorities DO think whites are better.

I think the girl who got the part needs to cry racism. Or better yet, have her lawyer cry it for her. I don't like it when people sue over every little thing, but enough is enough. This BS has gone way overboard. Did any other ethnically diverse girls audition? Did their talent warrant the role? Was the casting call ONLY for girls who were olive complexion with dark hair? If no, then it went the person who earned the part.

Like another poster said, those who usually cry racism are the biggest racists of all.

I'd rather embrace my culture and teach my children and their children just how important our culture IS - instead of rolling over and giving up. Too many people doing that already.

Well, here's the problem. You cannot open the Pandora's box of identity politics and think it's your own personal sandbox to play in forever. The door swings both ways. If it's all right to bitch and moan about who plays this or that role and how they should be this or that ethnicity, then it's all right to complain from all sides and for all races.

The people who started us on this path never stopped to think about all of that, and so now here we are.

Instead of creating something better or fairer, something ugly is emerging. But that's what opening Pandora's box does.

How very racist of victor Hugo not to write this character as black! I am boycotting this thread because you are all missing that point. I get more SJW points than all of you.

It has been swinging both ways since the beginning of Hollywood, an Italian played an Arab, a Jew played a Mexican, Al Pacino played a Cuban...who cares!!

But this white girl can't play Esmerelda because now, all of a sudden, people have been taught to care.

That's what I mean. Social Justice, Cultural Appropriation, etc.

Pretty soon, we'll be back to the days of anti-miscegenation because marrying someone outside your ethnicity would be a form of cultural appropriation again.

Why does "esmerelda" have to be a girl?
Are there no qualified boys to play the role?
Were boys allowed to try out for the role?
