Scenario #1 – Color Blind
Place – Lunch at a local café. Two pairs of friends who know each other well.
Blake (Brodie) – A well-meaning guy. Wants to work towards unity. Becomes defensive though when challenged on his approach to things. Believes in being colorblind.
Tracie (Aziza) – An activist against racism. Believes everyone is a little bit prejudice. Always trying to explain to others a better way to communicate.
Brad (Jahan)– Tracie’s friend. Kind, loving. Doesn’t like conflict. Will try to communicate, but if it reaches a certain level of frustration, he will shut down. Diane (Beth) – Blake’s friend. Also doesn’t like conflict, but is a little more vocal about it. Doesn’t really see why we can’t just all get along? We are in a “post-racial” society after all.
