Seems a bit like an oxymoron: racism in diversity.
However, sometimes we overlook what diversity really means. In my previous blog posts, I have focused specifically on black actors in accounting for minority representation on Broadway. But, blacks are clearly not the only minority group who go misrepresented. It as an issue that lies within in all non-white racial and ethnic minorities: blacks, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, and many more.
So, from this blog post forward, I will be working to create diversity among diversity, representing all minority groups and their trials and tribulations in the Broadway industry, as opposed to just one. To kick things off, here is a short clip regarding the lack of representation of Asian Americans on Broadway.
