So, yes, there has been a blog post written about the "whiteness" of Broadway that attracted quite a bit of attention. I've basically avoided it. I feel like I will either come off off like a pious scold or a person that's way too accepting of unacceptable things. It's a blog-problem. A bloblem.
There is already a fiery comments section, and I don't feel the need to dip my toe in that water.
And so, here's the link. It's likely you've already read it. If not, go for it.
