Put On Notice: Looking for Blacks with Extra Sass
One of our entertainment contributors put us on to a rather embarrassing casting notice for a tru TV “sitcom-style” show. Please look at this link and tell me what’s wrong.
No rush, I’ll wait.
You got it yet?
Welp, it essentially asks that each character have a “big personality” (as you know those extra-small and medium-sized personalities don’t exactly romance the camera lens).
BUT when it comes to the African-American individual, they also need to have sass.
Say what now?
Is this the dang prelude to Uncle Tom’s Cabin or a casting notice?
Stop the stereotypical foolishness, please. Isn’t it enough that THIS is on the air?
