|Note the African Man's Hand Placed Suggestively on the European Woman's Womb|
This is not the first time the Times has given us a new twist on a Shakespeare classic. See here for previous COTT forays into NYT dramaturge NWO revisionism.
In a sane society, the fact that Shakespeare's character Betram is being played by an african in this new-age take on an old-age classic would elicit a fair amount of progressivist commentary, such as: "Note how modern and egalitarian we are by allowing a negro to play a role that has historically been played by a European."
Instead, the one-worlder "race does not exist" reality contortionists at Amerika's newspaper of record devote not one word in their review of this Shakespeare in the Park production, "Flawed Man Draws A Good Woman," to this cheeky arrangement. Not. One. Word. And make no mistake: by NOT bothering to point out the incongruity of the situation, the demented, insidious policy shapers at the Times are emphasizing, through their silence, what they insist is a foregone conclusion. Not only does race not exist (except in the minds of racists, Tea Party members, and Sarah Palin), it never has existed, and it has never played even the tiniest role in the shaping or undoing of civilization. If Africa is stuck in the Stone Age, this has nothing to do with HBD and the innate abilities of that continent's indigenous people, and everything to do with the legacy of evil Western colonialism and, failing that, um, climate. And nutrition. Uh-hummm.
Nothing to see here folks, move along.
And no, this:
...is not a scene from "The Jeffersons," you unenlightened, podunk, racist hillbilly bigot.
