Aladdin is back but so is the race issue

It’s been 20 years since the film opened and some people had difficultly accepting that it was a fictional, fantasy animated film and they made lots of noise about the race issue. Now a whole new generation can finally enjoy the buddy story of a boy and his genie on stage and still people make a fuss that there aren’t any Middle-Eastern people in it, not as the leads nor any of the supporting cast. I would’ve hoped people would’ve become smarter by now. At least I’m glad there are no signs of boycotts yet.
