Default High school band won’t purchase music by white composers this year

It's reverse racism so it's cool.

There's not a lot of white running backs in the NFL so maybe teams should vow to only draft and sign white ones. That would go over well, right?

High school band won’t purchase music by white composers this year – TheBlaze

Quote:
Band directors at Spring Lake Park High School have pledged to include at least one piece by a female composer and one by a composer of color in each concert for each of the school’s bands, National Public Radio reported — and the sentiment also extends to spending decisions.

“We made a commitment this year to only buy music from composers of color,” Brian Lukkasson, one of the directors at the school outside St. Paul, Minnesota, told NPR.

A private school with a heavily minority and overwhelmingly female student body?

Nope. Public. 52% male, 63% white.

Wow you all love to get outraged at something that is none of your damned business. There is no local news about outrage at what they are doing, and they still have all the music that has been purchased over the years. Seems like the right is trying to make an issue out of a non issue to their ESD. Bt it is a Blaze story, what ever make the clicks of outrage so they can sell you over priced gold right.

They have a locally elected school board, so its their problem, or nonproblem. You all want local autonomy but can't help but stick your noses into something that isn't even an issue for them. You all sound like the big governemnt types.

I'm having a difficult time trying to digest just what, in the name of Allah's butthole, that is supposed to mean, since I don't give a rat's ass what snowflakes do in the sanctity of their own world. People can add to the derision or praise of those snow nuggets, or they can ignore this thread. I prefer to keep it "rolling".

May I suggest people who have no opinion just simply paste a bobblehead emoticon for shlts and giggles? Oh, wait. There is no such thing.
