    A little off subject, but I took my kiddos to see Disney on Ice and Princess Tiana was a white woman with black makeup on her face and arms! Wtf? Could they seriously not find a dark complected young woman to play the part? We were sitting pretty close and you could see her white legs through her pantyhose. Prince Naveen was Asian and wore no "darkening" makeup thank goodness. Disney usually has a higher quality production than that. I was disappointed in them.

    She's a meth addict. I don't think that will happen. She destroyed her career as an orthopedic surgeon for meth.

    The most ignorant dumbasses never fail to prove their ignorance on social media. How hard is it to Google "The Wiz" and find out it was created as an all-black show? Come on, humanity.

    Maybe there was not enough black ice skaters? I think there are multiple shows at the same time throughout the country. I'm sure the French black ice skater was free.
    This skater is cute:

    It's an old photo from a 2010 article.

    There was a group of black skaters called Black Ice and they put on shows across the US. I don't know if any of them are still around or not, but it was at least a dozen of them - IIRC Rohene Ward skated with them.

    In our location, we usually get shafted with the second rate shows ha ha
