Theatre show with 'all-black audience' that aims to explore race-related issues 'free from the white gaze' is accused of setting a 'dangerous precedent' (www.dailymail.co.uk)

The Theatre Royal Stratford East warned white visitors against attending the July 5 performance of Tambo & Bones so that the audience is ‘free from the white gaze’.

What do you think?

Okay so it seems that apartheid is socially acceptable now in the West. Can you just imagine the outcry of having a white only event free from ‘the black gaze’? So what next? Black pointy hoods, burning crosses in the rose gardens? It’s racism. These people are racists. Shame on anyone who attends this. Shame to all who condone this. If this trend continues it WILL lead to blood in the streets.

I think the majority of “normal” westerners can see through the woke bullshit. It’s the few precious snow flakes that kick up most the fuss. Empty vessels make the loudest noises 😂

I think you are right as of today but the power of persuasion is very powerfull. They make it seem as if alot of people are ok with this crap just like the lgbt crap for instance.

When people believe this is actually the norm (which happens faster with kids which often are the main targets) then you will see the opinions shifting. Group thinking comes into play. I see this often with people who had strong opinions untill they thought the norm was different and they started shifting to the norm to feel better in whatever way.

What makes me laugh about this is that white ppl wouldn’t have gone anyway.

I think it may be more of a threat against leaking content broadly (“What happens here…stays here…”). It sounds like a prepping ground for future garbage plotting.

Dystopian insanity where racism is now on full display being shouted from the street corners. I’ve found that some (but too many) black people I’ve encountered tend to be extremely racist with small businesses too, refusing to buy from small businesses with white people in them and babbling on and on about “black businesses”. It’s all so utterly absurd, so extremely engineered, and as usual it’s actually the minority in most places spouting this BS.

Racism is wrong no matter who’s doing it. We are never going to heal and have peace if we keep demonizing and hating each other. I don’t have the answers but mindsets like yours aren’t it. In fact it’s undoing all the progress that civil rights activists of all skin colors have fought and died for? Did you know that there were white civil rights activists who were lynched alongside their black brothers because they also believed that men should be judged on the content of the character and not the color of their skin, as MLK jr believed? It’s not 1960, it’s 2023 and we have the opportunity to build a better and brighter future together. Good luck with everything and stay safe
