Gyavira Lasana and Lisa Dixon are my guests again to dig deeper through this issue of "Blackface" or refusal to acknowledge the existance of qualified actors to play black roles.  Instead they are choosing to use white actors and use the practice of smearing their faces black to play black roles.  This definitely transcends the practice of "Blackface" itself, and brings to light the issue of a total disregard of a people.  Get your shovels ready!  Please sign the petition while you're at it.
