And yet Weiss in her review seems to think it is wrong to present a racist white cop killing a black person---because of there is more black on black crime than white on black crime.

It is hard to see how that is not a racist statement.

By Weiss's logic, it is wrong to present the murder of Duncan in MacBeth because most kings are not assassinated. Or it is wrong to present the final scene of Chicago because few convicted murderers went into vaudeville.

I also do not understand the strict focus on the city of Chicago for these stats. There have been a number of innocent black people injured or killed by police in the last decade. Maybe this only two victims were killed in Chicago, but I do not understand this idea that the play should reflect Chicago rather than the entire nation in which it will be performed. Or for that matter, why the play should not reflect outrage at those two killings in Chicago.
