he did it again

Conversation with Awkward Dude (you may remember a prior conversation we had) at a castmate's birthday party on Friday night:

Yeah, so it's really great that you're playing (character name). I mean, I never thought of a black guy playing that part before.

Well, it's Shakespeare, and most of the parts aren't race-specific...

Yeah, it's just so amazing. Like, I never thought of that. But then I saw you in rehearsal, and I was like, wow, a black guy can play that part. It's awesome.

Mmmm...


Such a special guy, right?

I can do nothing but laugh. I must tell you - it cracks me up.

Any white guy could play the part. But any black guy? No way. That takes a K. Lance.
