New York Post Columnist Miranda Devine said on Tuesday that the backlash against the Hamilton musical proves that “you can never be woke enough.”

Black actors portraying white historical figures... just wrong. Don't get me wrong, perhaps a few years ago I could see that the job of an actor was to portray any character no matter the color, sexual orientation, age or religion. Now, however, the new Hollywood rules dictate parts may only be written then performed only by people that match the character completely. Muslims may only play Muslims, Gays can only be portrayed by a Homosexual and Mexicans can only be Mexican. So Hamilton should have been played by an actor with white privilege. Your rules.
