A University of Michigan professor is on his way out the window because he showed his class a 1965 film, Othello, by Shakespeare, starring Lawrence Olivier… in blackface (https://www.foxnews.com/us/university-of-michigan-professor-othello-film-blackface).
By doing this, the prof violated stupid students’ “safe space.” Sheesh. Didn’t he know that only Democrat politicians are allowed to cavort around in blackface? Ask the governor of Virginia and his minstrel show cronies.
I mean, like, the whole point of the play is that Othello is a black man in a white men’s world, and very, very sensitive about it, etc. So white actors have traditionally played Othello in blackface.
But not to worry! I have found a simple dramatic production fully compatible with the intellects of University of Michigan students. And here it is.
