High school accused of “white washing” crappy culturally appropriated rip off of Wizard of Oz – cancels production

The Wiz – A crappy musical culturally appropriated rip off of the beloved Wizard of Oz. The original Oz didn’t have a pedophile scarecrow!

Beal pulls plan to stage The Wiz after ‘white washing’ criticism

A London, Ont., high school has pulled the plug on plans to stage the musical The Wiz this year amid criticism the production would be a “white-washing” of the Wizard of Oz adaptation told from an African American perspective.

H.B. Beal Secondary School principal Michael Deeb said the decision came on Thursday, a little more than a week after the school announced The Wiz as its annual production.

The Wiz is flagrant cultural appropriation! I’m offended!

    The Wiz.
    A racist rip-off of a white story, written and intended to only be performed by blacks.
    This play should be regarded in the same light as “Birth of a Nation” with the exception that Birth of a Nation was based on a kernel of truth and not a subject of pure fantasy like The Wiz.

    Since London Ont. loves islam so much, maybe muslim Dorothy can wear a suicide vest and blow up the white witch. Then they can have the London police with their Arabic writing on their cars, make an appearance on stage, and say it has nothing to do with islam.

    Have fun trying to find a production that doesn’t offend someone. I wish I lived there, just so that I could make up some cock and bull story about why I am offended by what they come up with as a substitute.

    Its a good thing they didn’t put on a Christmas play, or they would really be in trouble.
