I saw this at Dr. Roberts’s site and had to verify it. And, in fact, half of an English Orchestra was fired because they were White.

English Touring Opera (ETO) has dropped half of its orchestral players in a push for diversity.

At least 14 musicians have been told they will not be booked for the 2022 ETO tour, many of them long-running members of the orchestra.

The ETO has attributed the changes to prioritising “increased diversity in the orchestra,” something that’s in line with “firm guidance of the Arts Council.”

I would point out that England’s useless, wretched Queen has extreme powers and could forcefully undue and avenge this evil. I would, but there’s no point. So, next year, perhaps it’ll be a little more Tupac and a little less Rossini. I wonder if they would be willing to buy 10,000 Haitian trolls (I’ll throw the bridge in for free).
