Yes I am for real. I don't know what Michael Bennett's casting process was, and I suspect, neither do you - or the various wokesters who will jump in on this issue. I trust that he was not a racist running a closed shop. I made no global statements about "no black women talented enough" but do I think it's possible that at a specific audition, the white actresses seemed more fitting for the roles? Certainly. As for the writing, the revival didn't seem to have to make any script changes to accomodate a black Shelia.
