Hamilton Racist! You Don’t Say

Hamilton Racist! You Don’t Say

Hamilton the hottest show on Broadway, has just run into a problem. In their casting ads they have explicitly stated “We’re only looking for “non-white” employees and that my friends is racist and illegal. Civil rights attorney Randolph McLaughlin of Newman Ferrara Law Firm, believes the casting call violates the New York City Human Rights Law which makes it illegal for an employer to discriminate against a potential hire based on race. “You cannot advertise showing that you have a preference for one racial group over another,” McLaughlin told CBS New York. “ McLaughlin points out that the notice violates the Broadway performers union Actor’s Equity’s policies as well.

 

The city Commission on Human Rights has not yet received a complaint.

The shows creator Lin Manuel Miranda tweeted earlier to Jack Viertel producer of 1776 opening tonight
