I found that the day after seeing the show I wanted tell everyone about it, but at the same time I wanna say nothing at all and just make them go see it themselves. This is show had so much going on...
Downtown Race Riot is a play that revolves around the friendship of two young men. One, who is Caucasian, by the name of Pnut (prounounced peanut) and the other who is a Haitian immigrant, by the name of Massive.
A woman who relies on drinking and smoking to get her energy up and to drown away any unwanted feelings is far from the conventional definition of funny, yet to portray it in a way as if it were a joke may give off the impression and even convince others that that's what it really is.
... playing their ‘last’ match at the US Open (some big deal tennis tournament thing). Immediately, I am drawn to Sergey, because... well, the accent, duh. But also Sergey’s charm is just insanely funny. He’s this semi-depressed stupidly good tennis player that doesn’t actually have anyone to play for but himself.
I have to say, me, being a total outsider did not feel excluded in the show. Mind you I know nothing, zip, zero about tennis. The show, while tennis was a huge topic, dove deep into the human beings behind the tennis players.
Dark skin vs. light skin - the effects of colonialism, bleaching, showing the dark skinned girl as the angry black woman Competition between black women - crabs in a barrel, HBIC (head bitch in charge), there can only be one mentality Wanting to be validated and seen - because the world saw us and shamed us as ugly and not Eurocentric enough
I love who I am, love where I came from, and love the people around me for ALL of our differences. Remember that no matter where you come from, be proud of who you are and that your culture is NOT for sale.
I found myself reminded of my aunt this time around. I lost her a few years after my grandparents, she basically became a surrogate guardian for me once they were gone. She got sick not too long after them...
While living life on the Autism spectrum certainly seemed difficult, to say the least, I could better sympathize with the people in the positions of loving someone on the spectrum, particularly the parents of the people very far on the spectrum
I realized this is a hard situation for many and I wish none of this violence ever had to happen. I don't actually know if the guy from the show really did it or not and it sucks because in real life this same doubt can make a victim feel alone.
Margaret and all the Irish people in the village were being judge for being Irish or not having all the Anglo-Saxon features. Stereotypes like this are common in many cultures. When deciding what’s ideal and what isn’t, most go by what’s common.
