Casting Controversy Shadows La Jolla Playhouse's 'Nightingale'

Ragtime is based on a novel, and is mythical with characters encountering historical celebrities. So, let's cast Ragtime with the African American roles being filled by white Americans because the casting will be based on merit.

Then if anyone complains, state that no African American actor or actress is "good enough" for any of the lead African American roles.

Do you think that would happen?
