    Seems stupid.

    However the choirs apparently had 2 years notice that they would be showcasing more diverse choirs this year.

    Seems racist, shithead. Discrimination is still discrimination, even with notice.

    Yes it sounds stupid and overly pc.

    I looked up the story and I was mistaken, they were not told they needed to be more diverse. They were told 2 years ago, that they would be capped at 4 performances. This is a new thing the orchestra is doing, inviting high school bands. These 2 bands performed 4 years in a row, after the 2nd year the orchesrta wanted to give other local high schools a chance to perform and told the bands that after the 4th year they would not be invited back.

    If 2 multi-ethnic choruses had wanted to join the Atlanta Symphony and were denied because they were "too diverse".....the outrage would be palpable and at fever pitch levels. Now this would be an absolutely ridiculous reason to exclude anyone because musical ability should be the deciding factor, but it's very still applicable here.

    So yeah this story is the inverse of the above and is thus just as racist. That it's blacks that are being racist is irrelevant nor does it change that fact.

    Does this mean that the Harlem Boys Choir would not have been welcome, too?
