    Atlanta Symphony Rejects Two High School Choruses Because They‘re Not ’Racially Diverse Enough’ | Video | TheBlaze.com

    Two high school choruses will not be performing with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO) this year because they’re not “racially-diverse enough,” Fox News reports.

    Apparently, it’s more important that you look like you just came from the set of Glee than it is to, you know, have actual talent.

    “This year, the schools were informed by symphony officials that their choruses are not diverse enough, and that the symphony would be inviting a third, more diverse chorus [emphasis added],” said Cobb County Schools spokesman Jay Dillon.

    Unsurprisingly, some Marietta, Ga., residents believe the symphony’s decision to turn away both Walton and Lassiter High School is discriminatory.

    Political correctness at it's best.

    Apparently no one cares.
