A few days ago I meet Atish. Atish is a memeber of the Chara community, an extremely oppressed group in India that are constantly referred to as the community of criminals. This community has faced many struggles ranging from job refusal to people refusing to sell houses to them. Despite these struggles, the Chara community uses theater as a method to get others to sympathize and recognize their issues. If I had to use theater as a tool to create change, I’d create a play about colorism. People of color are extremely oppressed as it is and within that group darker skin minorities are oppressed by their fellow peers. Colorism is a very real issue in the United States as darker skinned people are constantly bashed in the media. While colorism is very much in America, it also is very prevalent in other countries, including India. Darker skin is universally seen as a bad thing or even inferior. A play on colorism would be beneficial to not only my community, but many others. It would help others recognize the issues and negative effects of colorism.

    When I initially commented, I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks.

    Woah! I’m enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a very good job with this.

    Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not fail me as much as this particular one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I genuinely believed you would probably have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix if you weren’t too busy searching for attention.
