Macbeth is a great play,
Just because there are no "black guys" doesn't mean it is a racist play. If it were a racist play there would be 'black' slaves, raping of said 'black' slaves and the use of
racist slurs. Since this play has none of the items above I don't believe it counts as racist. Please do not use the word racist for no reason again.
Kind Regards.

Page 64 - This guest of summer, The temple-haunting martlet, does approve By his loved mansionry that the heaven's breath Smells wooingly here : no jutty, frieze, Buttress, nor coign of vantage, but this bird Hath made his pendent bed and procreant cradle : Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed The air is delicate.
