Two days after Hamilton actor Brandon Victor Dixon delivered a message to Mike Pence following the conclusion of the show, all eyes have been on him.The hypocrisy in the message he sent has already been pointed out. While he spoke as if he was assuming Pence was a racist, telling him “we, sir, we are the diverse America,” he and the cast don’t practice what they preach. In fact, they had generated controversy months ago when they were looking for actors, specifically stating that they preferred non-white actors.
Overnight, he [Dixon] became a sensation among liberals, who praised him as a champion for the rights and freedoms of all Americans. But then this surfaced.
Here’s the archived link.Dixon’s words are especially interesting in light of the fact that his lecture accused the Trump/Pence administration of making non-white Americans feel unsafe. “We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us,” he said.
Is that any wonder, with prominent black figures like Dixon – who, by the way, openly supports Black Lives Matter and once belittled All Lives Matter supporters – normalizing that particular crime?

Of all the liberal media outlets that have praised Dixon for his message to Pence, it’s safe to estimate exactly zero will cover this.
