“We celebrate diversity, and in the arts many support colour blind casting. From the film The Personal History of David Copperfield to the musical Hamilton, stories are cast to reflect the racial diversity of our culture. But critics argue that, far from being progressive, such practices in fact paper over the racist Victorian society of Dickens’s novels and the white colonial history of America. Should we applaud the overcoming of historical accuracy in favour of racially blind representation, and ignore race as a relevant characteristic in all circumstances? Or is colour blindness a liberal mistake – a dangerous denial of racial realities, and of the long history of white supremacy?”
