Marymount Manhattan College's Theatre Arts Department claims it wants to make a change and take a stand against racism in its programs. Musical Theatre Coordinator Patricia Simon has a track record of racism and racial insensitivity, and if Marymount Manhattan College truly wants to prove it is willing to change, they need to have repercussions for her behavior. 

In a recent town hall for the department addressing an overall theme of racism and the department's planned efforts to combat these injustices, Pat Simon's behavior made it clear that she had no desire to make a change: she sat for minutes on end with her nose turned up, eyes closed, and in an all around disinterested and disconnected manner. 

Marymount Manhattan College: we demand that you address Pat Simon and teachers like her who refuse to acknowledge the issues at hand that they play a part in fostering. It is not enough to have an instructor sit through racial insensitivity training, especially when it is made clear that this teacher has no desire to change. Make an example of Pat Simon, so that we may weed out the sick roots that plague the structure of our program.
