Thursday October 27, 2011 / 8:00pmDavid Mamet's Race
How was your experience?
Mamet's plays always have twists that provoke thought, this one was no exception. I did find a lack of nuance and a huge dose of cynicism that painted a broad brush related to the race issue. I also thought that his premise that our society is so "politically correct" that in matters of justice the deck is stacked in favor of people of color. I see nothing in our country that supports that. I do see that money and power do tip the judicial scales. Mamet's conversion to the right appears to have clouded the issue for him.
