Wow. Just, wow.

This is NOT how it’s done. First of all, the ASL actors aren’t “playing” ANY characters, they are interpreting what the characters say. Hasn’t TDF seen the many women who interpret the comments of male governors during news conferences?

To use “the current social climate” as an excuse for someone who was hired only eight months ago is craven and pandering—wasn’t Mr Wann white when he was hired in March? The “social climate” regarding race hasn’t changed since then. Someone made a HUGE and ugly mistake.

You don’t conquer inequality by practicing the same senseless discrimination you’re trying to eliminate.
