RIP Philo

School musical cancelled for rascism

A white girl got cast for the role of Esmeralda (French/Roma) in a production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

An African/American quit the play in protest.

A bunch of SJWs went nuts, started a campaign and posted demands.

The school cancelled the production.

The SJWs posted even more demands.

Roma aren’t black, just ‘dusky’.

Roma/Gypsies that stayed in India (Rajasthan)

In Europe most are a lot lighter.

Here are some that catered for the tourist industry.

The black girl has ABSOLUTELY NO CASE that she is a gypsy. Not only that, but gypsies and not blacks as a group were killed by Hitler during the Holocaust.

Not only that, but white european girls are 150,000 years closer genetically to gypsies than blacks are.

More SJW nonsense ruining good things.  These assholes think like everything of note in the world was done by blacks.

There have always been priests spoiling the party.

They come from a different angle this time, but they are very pious.

Incomplete reporting, as usual. sigh.

Unaddressed in the article is whether any black person auditioned for the role of Esmerald. If the answer is no, there is no controversy apart from whether the school could do more to encourage black people to audition for major roles. If yes, which of the white and black candidates had the better credentials. Whether Maddi Carroll, who had some other role in the play and quit because of the white student winning the black role, auditioned for the role of Esmerald and, if yes, was this sour grapes.

The students protesting the selection openly stated that she was the best choice but she was also ‘the epitome of whiteness’.

That's a pretty racist statement to make. Were they disciplined?
