Here’s an interesting situation over in Britishland:
The English Touring Opera has dropped 14 white musicians in a woke drive to ‘increase diversity’ in the company. The musicians, aged 40 to 66, have been told they will not be offered contracts with the company in Spring 2022 citing diversity guidance from the Arts Council England, the Sunday Times reported.
The musicians, who officially work as freelancers, can be dropped from the opera season-on-season but many have played with the company for up to 20 years and consider it a permanent job.
Of course, this is a disgusting thing to do, but complaining doesn’t achieve anything, as any fule kno.
Here’s a thought.
I don’t have the numbers, but I’m willing to bet that this 40-66 age group would constitute a majority of the Touring Opera’s audience. So I call on all patrons in that age range to boycott their performances.
I wonder if the company’s finances could sustain the subsequent loss of income…
