All good points, and a good perspective.

To me, it could have been an opportunity to work it out with the students (without knowing what was actually done). It isn't a racist piece, so it's not about convincing them otherwise, but working with them to approach material that includes characters that make them uncomfortable. On face value, it seems to be an example of what we see a lot of today, and it's possible there is more sensitivity than necessary (and a chance there isn't). Maybe he tried - yes, he can't force them. Next time, and I hope there is a next time, when a property has problematic elements, he will approach and work with the students ahead of time. (I realize universities are on a schedule, but the article was written on November 22 and the play was supposed to start on December 5.)
