Tuesday on "The Talk@Home," Wayne Brady shares a story about his daughter, Maile's experience with colorblind casting at school. "This young lady, especially coming from a biracial household and background, she's an activist. She's going to be one of the heads of her black student union at her school," Brady shares. "She got her own taste earlier this year during a school play, in terms of colorblind casting. We had to have a whole discussion and we got on the phone with the head of the school. I had Ben Vereen, joined in on the phone call with me, because there was a role - Ben Vereen originated it. It's a traditionally Black role [in Pippin] that was glossed over." Brady adds, "She's already started her own journey of learning about the complexity of race, the uncomfortable conversations, the things that she has to deal with on her own, and I'm proud of her because she knows herself better racially at 17 than I did at 17."
