Argues for the necessity of a brand new ethos for middle-class white anti-racism.
Building on her e-book Revealing Whiteness, Shannon Sullivan identifies a constellation of attitudes universal between well-meaning white liberals that she sums up as “white middle-class goodness,” an orientation she reviews for being extra serious about developing anti-racist bona fides than with confronting systematic racism and privilege. Sullivan untangles the complicated relationships among type and race in modern white id and descriptions 4 methods this orientation is expressed, each one helping determine one’s loss of racism: the denigration of lower-class white humans as answerable for ongoing white racism, the demonization of antebellum slaveholders, an emphasis on colorblindness—especially within the context of white childrearing—and the cultivation of attitudes of white guilt, disgrace, and betrayal. to maneuver past those distancing recommendations, Sullivan argues, white humans desire a new ethos that recognizes and transforms their whiteness within the pursuit of racial justice instead of looking a self-righteous distance from it.

The more acute the experience the less articulate its expression” (Esslin 1980: 243). The implications of this position for the practice of acting are considerable, extending, for the purposes of this essay, to Shakespearean performance and to the relations between words, actions, stage presence and character.
The dreamlike quality of this exit into daylight blindness, the abstracted, symbolically loaded juxtapositions of the isolation shot, and the constraints on our ability visually to penetrate this slice of life make it clear why Surrealist artists might have been drawn to such an avowedly realist mise en scène.

Then, they clustered round him, to curry favour by excusing their own part in the cowardice and by ratting on Falstaff. Hal heard them with a mocking insolent smile. (Wharton 1983: 68) This is a moment of piss-taking worthy of The Birthday Party (revived by the RSC the same year), The Caretaker or The Homecoming (a play specifically composed with the RSC in mind).
