So the Hamilton cast signed on to a racist organization

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The hottest show on Broadway has won praise for its groundbreaking casting of black and Latino performers, but now, “Hamilton” may have run afoul of the strict New York City Human Rights Law.As CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported, the controversy was sparked by a casting notice posted by the producers of “Hamilton,” which specifically seeks “non-white” performers.One critic said “Hamilton” takes a story that “valorizes dead white guys” and replaces it with black, Latino and multi-ethnic performers playing America’s founding fathers.But as the blockbuster musical looks to expand to other cities, the casting notice with its call for “non-white” performers looks problematic to civil rights attorney Randolph McLaughlin.

I will never go to the racist hell hole that is New York.  I am heading south where Rednecks are smart, intelligent and not racist.  I knew Jerry Brown was a racist prick, but I never suspected Cuomo.
But the weird thing.  The entire cast knew they signed on to a racist organization, they should have figured out to be silent least they get caught.  If you are a racist prick actor, then at least be smart enough to shut your mouth, don't be a Nancy Pelosi!.
