White choir sings black spirituals, and all hell breaks loose
.
Another example of who is really racist in America.

--
Should white people sing black spirituals?

Western Michigan University is grappling with that question after a black student was triggered and suffered a social media meltdown when a predominantly white choir sang "Wade in the Water."

"So apparently Western Michigan University thinks it's ok for WHITE peoples to sing blacks spirituals while the instructor talking bout 'these songs don't belong to one race.' They sure as hell DO," WMU music major Shaylee Faught wrote on a social media post now seen by more than 1 million people.

Faught got triggered after the choir's black conductor reportedly told the audience that the selections were "American songs" performed "for everyone" and "have no ethnicity."

The performance, "Spirituals: From Ship to Shore," included songs like "Go Down, Moses" and the aforementioned "Wade in the Water."

Well, faster than you could say zip-a-dee-doo-dah, nearly the entire campus suffered a meltdown.

"We as a collective are appalling [sic] that this took place on our campus," The Black Student Union wrote in a statement. "This act is a further example and reflection of the racial insensitivity and ignorance that has been allowed to occur on Western Michigan's campus."

The BSU called for "racial reeducation on sensitivity training and cultural competence."

I have no idea what that means, but it sounds like one of Bernie Sanders' gulags.

University leaders released a statement to WKZO expressing their grave concerns over the matter.

"This student's perspective is real and it is important," they wrote. "It is one among many different perspectives."

John Wesley Wright, who is a renowned conductor and professor, told the Western Herald that he has no idea why the student got triggered and he has no reason to apologize.

"I just got off the phone with the bass from 'Sweet Honey in The Rock' (an African American a cappella ensemble), and her first question was, 'Has anyone looked into the mental health of the people who made those comments,'" he told the newspaper.

The professor's comment set off the Western Student Association, which condemned the "insidious nature of cultural appropriation."

"When the director is more concerned with investigating the mental health of a student rather than empathetically responding to concerns of students, it further illustrates that student's voices do not matter," they wrote in a statement to the newspaper. "We do not and will not tolerate these inappropriate responses."

The snowflakes who run the Black Student Union demanded an apology from the School of Music.

"To decrease the likelihood of events like this happening in the future, we demand that whatever culture, race, or ethnicity is being represented must be consulted before the show," the BSU wrote.

In other words, the choir may want to take a pass on that spring concert medley featuring the works of Dr. Dre and Lil Nasty.

I'll say it again, racism is a nonsense concept.

It supposes that people of one ethnocultural background HATE those of other ethnocultural background and wish to harm them.

The reality is, EVERY ethnocultural group simply PREFERS those who share the same values, hobbies, cuisine, pastimes, and speak the same language.

It is just that simple.

'Appropriation' is just when a group of the 'wrong' color starts appreciating something new, new food, new music (new to their ethnocultural group). It was always a good thing, until ~ 10 years ago, when it became appropriation.

If you don't think certain groups hate you for your pigmentation then you aren't paying attention. Dodgy

That isn't what I am saying. The narrative surrounding and definition of racism, currently widely used, is what I am speaking against.

I don't think there is any group that hates all of another group, purely on skin color. Are there individuals? Probably. Should we do anything about it? No. You prosecute crimes. Violence, or maybe maybe the 'instigation' or incitement of violence, but not mean words or thoughts or 'predictions based upon certain indicators' (pre-crime or thought crime).

Most of the stuff that gets called racism these days, like EY saying Europeans are racist against Chinese, because they are afraid of Coronavirus is NOT 'racism'.

so then anyone of non-European decent should not be allowed to use any musical instruments invented in Europe. Let them use their own traditional instruments. How would that go over?

Yeah, that is what I thought.

the whole appropriation thing is a way to promote white liberalism as the only standard

when Asians want to do black/latino things, that's appropriation

when whites want to do black/latino things, that's appropriation

so all that's left to is to embrace white libtardism

it's a form of enforcing white culture and wiping out indigenous cultures by preventing OTHER cultures from adopting non-white cultures.

RE: White choir sings black spirituals, and all hell breaks loose
also gospel music has roots in EUROPEAN music

EUROPEAN SCALES, EUROPEAN RELIGION (protestantism)
European Harmonies, European instruments ( piano /organ)

European technology (microphones/PA systems)

that is not to say that Gospel music isn't original it is, but it built on the music and innovation of EUROPEANS and became something pretty unique

And when you say white culture, of course you mean Hollywood/MSM/mainstream music culture.
