This is a response to the magazine "New Mobility" choosing the character of Artie from Glee as its "Person of the Year".

(I actually don't know what this is in response to, but think it's interesting nonetheless.)

Thanks for these!

But, oh, Gary Presley, when you say
Think about that issue this way: No one will tolerate George Clooney being cast as Martin Luther King, Jr. in a film biography. Yes, I know. A few pale skin actors have passed that test in their portrayals of Othello, and then there was Tony Curtis playing Ira Hayes, but it is no great stretch to jump to the possible erroneous conclusion that it is far easier for the great Denzil Washington earn a film or theater part seen as "white" than it is for an actor of equal grace and talent to play a part seen as "black."

Well. You're right about Artie, but I need to introduce you to the fine folks at Racebending.

I hate when articles/posts/etc. like this that have a very true and solid argument about something bad happening to X group toss in the "this would NEVER happen to Y group!!!" stuff. 99.9% of the time it's not true, 100% of the time it's not necessary. And somehow race is seen as a prime candidate. *siighs*
