I'm not only "Hoping that maybe some BIPOC actors will be seen only for shows that specifically need BIPOC actors" -- there are plenty of Equity actors already in the union showing up and waiting around to be seen too. Non-Equity BIPOC actors and non-BIPOC are free to show up for anything, like current Equity actors do and wait. That part of it is not favoring anyone demographically -- as the saying goes, "90% of success in show biz is showing up"-- so show up! But as it stands now, Equity actors, who pay dues, which pay for the upkeep and salaries of the union employees, etc., get preference to be seen first.
