P.C. Bullies Kill Hunchback of Notre Dame Because White Girl Won Coveted Role

The objective cannot be to put on the best possible play. It must be to caste the most persons of politically preferred pigmentation in plum roles. Otherwise, the production will be shut down, as happened to The Hunchback of Notre Dame at a New York school.

Members of Ithaca High School’s Students United Ithaca … got together and wrote up a letter and list of demands after the role of Esmeralda went to a Caucasian peer.

“It shows you that theater wasn’t made for you,” said Maddi Carroll, a member of the Students United group who is African-American. “And it shows you that, if you can’t get the parts that are written for you, what parts are you going to get?”

In Victor Hugo’s novel, Esmeralda is not an African, but a Gypsy. Whites are more similar in appearance to gypsies than blacks are.

Students United’s letter conceded that the student cast as Esmeralda “is a stellar actor, singer, and dancer” and that any production would be “lucky to have her.”

However, talent is irrelevant. Only moonbattery matters.

“Our concern is not with her, but with the fact that in terms of demographics, she is the wrong choice for this role.”

But no doubt they would let a white person play the hunchback, since he is freakish looking.

The group’s demands, listed on its Facebook page, included a cessation of play rehearsals, a stoppage of hiring (production) people who have not “changed their actions” following complaints from “parents of color” and “social justice activists,” and an end to the “racist and openly stated policy of ‘color blind’ casting.”

Being color blind — i.e., not racist — is racist. Moonbattery has achieved maximum absurdity.

As usual, the politically correct bullies managed to spoil the fun for everyone, because no one had the guts to stand up to them.

On a tip from Chronos Z. Wonderpig.

    While I’d like to see Samuel L. Jackson cast as Hitler in a remake of Downfall (the ranting with his use of the MF-word would be awesome) such a choice is too far from accurate for willing suspension of disbelief in historical drama.

  2. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Clearly the biggest problem at Ithaca High School is that there are few gypsies, and apparently even fewer with acting talent. They clearly need an outreach program to recruit more gypsies to add to the student body.

  3. Swordie says:

    Hollywood’s failing numbers can be partly attributed to the idea behind the connection of the following separate quotes:

    “…the student cast as Esmeralda is a stellar actor, singer, and dancer…”


    “…she is the wrong choice for this role.”

    Save the make-believe for the stage, yo.

    They could get them there, provided the playground had ample space for the caravans. The real problem is getting them to stay once all the loose change and brass fittings are gone.

  5. Mr. Freemarket says:

    They have their own versions of “social justice” and “wealth distribution.”

  6. Swordie says:

    Is that code for knife fights and binge drinking?

  7. SolidusRaccoon says:

    But making a movie where Little Orphan Annie is black is ok.

  8. TheChaoticStorm says:

    If they actually read Hunchback instead of watching the bastardization of the story by Disney, they would know that Esmerelda had a French mother and was likely much lighter skinned than portrayed in the Disney film.

    Personally, I don’t care what someone looks like in a play. It’s a play. These kids have been taught to find oppression where there is none.

  9. Brian says:

    Let “Hamilton” play Esmeralda, what’s the difference at this point. Meanwhile, the role of the hunchback can go to Oprah Winfrey… no makeup required…

  10. Trebuchet says:

    That’s pretty pathetic. Romany are about as dark skinned as Italians or Spaniards, which the last time I checked were considered white Europeans.

  11. Mr. Freemarket says:

    See, now you are labeling things. What is “binge” drinking? It seems to imply a large amount of drinking periodically. And knife fights. What if a fight involves broken bottles and sticks….that wouldn’t qualify.

  12. Mr. Freemarket says:

    That is because only blacks are orphans.

  13. Swordie says:

    You’re right. I am inexorably bound to the societal conventions of labeling. This prevents me from fully experiencing the lush cultural milieu of edged/spiked combat and excessive consumption of alcohol at seemingly random intervals. Consider my mind blown and my privilege double checked.

  14. George Young says:

    How about taking all extra curricular activities out of the school. No football, basketball, baseball, wrestling, etc… make it academics only, and the sports clubs can be privatized and financed separate from the schools, at no cost to the tax payers.

  15. […] the point of theatrical productions is to cast blacks in the best roles, then the point of the U.S. Olympic team must be to not field so many white […]

  16. Swordie says:

    THAT is a great idea. More people should hear about this. Please, step into the dark alley so we can talk more about it.

    Why don’t you little pricks just admit you hate white people?

    Home schooling and school choice would solve this problem.. If you are able, you need to get your kids out of the public school system. If rich kids can have school choice so should poor kids. The kids in those inner city schools need school choice so they can have a better chance of succeeding. Stop all extracurricular activities in the schools. Problem solved.

    “But no doubt they would let a white person play the hunchback, since he is freakish looking.”

    Not only that… but that is the ONLY role in which a white person would be MANDATED to play. Imagine a black person, Latino, or other non-white person to play the “freak”… that would probably be a bigger digression than Esmeralda’s role!

  20. RKae says:

    I regularly attend Shakespeare plays where you might see a black actor as anything from the Duke of Somerset to even Henry V.

    In those instances, no one cares. But can a white actor play “a black role”? NEVER!

    I just saw Phylicia Rashad in a play and her bio in the program lists all sorts of white British roles: Lady Macbeth, etc.

    So they get to wallow in how “versatile” they are while white actors are only allowed white roles… unless a black actor wants it, in which case the white actor must step back and shut up.

    Yer losing your culture, folks.

    I’m all for it.

    ” if you can’t get the parts that are written for you …”

    she’s not a gypsy (Indian by way of eastern Europe) so what the hell is she jabbering about?? Just another damn crybully seeking attention by acting like a Harpie, swoop poop and leave.

    This is what happens when massive amounts of government money stolen from productive citizens is gifted to the low skill, low IQ types who major in “Studies” courses taught by people who have never had a job in industry unless they waited tables or served burgers and likely never will, a fate awaiting people like this azzclown.

  23. ICEvictim says:

    they hate anyone and any culture that succeeds without welfare and set asides and quotas, in other words – people who work for it

  26. Franklyfrank says:

    People with spines need to speak up wherever & whenever this bigotry rears its ugly head and point out loudly, that this IS RACIST.
    Progressives who profess to care about tolerance and sensitivity are full of s**t when they goose-step along like lemmings with this idiotic, utterly stupid behavior.
    Call the hypocritical a**holes out on their behavior.

    Whenever their little racist ideas rear their ugly heads, the white students should ALL walk out and refuse to participate. PC SUCKS!
