‘Hamilton’ Actor Shows His Real Colors – OpEd


Over the weekend, Brandon Victor Dixon, the actor who plays Aaron Burr in the musical, “Hamilton,” scolded Vice-President Elect Mike Pence on the need to “uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.” He cited respect for diversity as one of those key values.

Dixon is a phony: he has no moral ground to stand on. This is what he  tweeted on St. Patrick’s Day 2012: “St. Patty’s day weekend is like Christmas for black dudes who like white chicks. Happy holidays boys.”

I guess we Irish Catholics can take solace in the fact that Dixon didn’t refer to these “white chicks” as “ho’s”—that’s what he calls black women.

Looks like the list of persons Dixon needs to apologize to is growing.
