by Storyteller Scott Whitehair
A wannabe comedian in the suburbs of Pittsburgh finally meets a professional comic who is willing to take him under his wing. However, stunned silence over the discovery of a small town’s nasty racial secret destroys a brand new friendship before it can even begin.
- When was a time when you remained silent when you should have spoken up about discrimination? What caused you to stay silent?
- How could this situation have turned out differently? What effect could calling out the racism around us have on the people practicing it or on the people experiencing it?
- Have you ever observed the silence of others while you yourself were being treated poorly? How would you have wanted others to react or behave?
