The conversation probably would have hit harder coming from Amanda and not Billy. CK and her portrayal of Lily has benefited from colorism more so than any character/actress I can recall.

I had the sliiiightest expectation for her to mention skin tone when she listed how she herself benefits from privilege. But I guess that would have been a third rail.

Lol. I didn’t have such expectations because the show is awful.

Dreadful. It’s lacking in grand drama but doesn’t do character moments like this well either. Worst of both worlds.

They all but confirmed it by finally cutting Maya from their recent opening but glad to see KM make it official. Sad that they allowed a “historic” character to just do the Irish goodbye. A waste and they painted Maya into a corner with a story they knew they couldn’t truly execute.
