"One of the magical things about theater is that it gathers a crowd of people in a quiet space, and each member of the audience gets to see how people respond differently to the different things being said on stage. The person next to you will laugh at something that you’d never think of laughing at, and you’ll get a glimpse into all the different ways of viewing the world. Unfortunately, so much theater today is less nuanced. It gives you a large dose of one way of thinking, in hopes of getting as many of the same type of people into the theater as possible."

"Richard II" with Alec Guinness as the King, Margaret Leighton as the Queen, and Ralph Richardson as John of Gaunt, at the Old Vic in 1947, directed by the newly-knighted Sir Ralph, who was prone to memory lapses.

"Ralph somehow contrived to forget one of the most famous lines in all drama. It was the schools’ set book of the year, and the matinee audience consisted largely of children, many of whom had to learn the main speeches by heart. As his role came to an end, Ralph got slower and slower and his pauses longer and longer. At last John of Gaunt’s big moment arrived, his deathbed adjuration to the king. ‘This blessed throne of kings… (long pause). This … sceptered … isle. (Longer pause.). This … earth … of … majesty… (Huge pause.) This ….’ Ralph’s eyes moved from side to side. What prompter in his right mind would have dared to open his mouth? Still the line would not come. At length 800 treble voices from the audience piped up: ‘Seat of Mars!’" (From Michael Meyer, "Words Through A Windowpane.")

Racial bias in America: from higher suspension rates in preschool, to disproportionate rates of capital punishment, to everything in between, structures of authority routinely allow anti-Black racial bias to color the “facts”, and warp the narrative. And frequently (whether unintentional or otherwise) the police and the media often work together to further criminalize innocent Black victims

1Criminalizing Blackness in America

2. 14-year-old Tremaine McMillian attacked and choked by police, literally while holding a puppy…because McMillian made them “feel threatened” and gave them “dehumanizing stares

3. Author and CNN contributor keithboykin: how the AP slandered Renisha McBride even in death

4.  The Associated Press: when can skin color alone determine who is and who isn’t a looter? (hint: don’t be Black)

This implicit racial bias does not magically stop at innocuous events like the VMAs, or in Hollywood. So far, it doesn’t ever turn off. There are two Americas and racial bias is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe

we discussed this in my social psych class and it was one of the favorite lessons we had.
