In another episode of our casting notice watchdogging series (not originally intended to be a series, but maybe we should name what we’ve been doing — scanning casting notices for racially/ethnically sensitive or noteworthy verbiage) we spotted this one on Actor’s Access. Granted, it was for an unverified webisode, not a major studio effort, so we don’t take that much umbrage.
But if you’re “leaning” white, there’s no need to hide your myopia and be circumspect about it. Just come out and say, “We’re biased, and probably not truly keeping an open mind.”
“all ethnicities but leaning towards Caucasian”
Inspired by this, I’ll start selling cigarettes … but leaning toward ones that don’t contribute to your death.
