So, let’s get rid of more culture and history.
Music is already becoming a thing of the past.
Sure there is still talent, and there is still music….but the best of it seems to obviously NOT be the popular.
Plenty of musicians must be turning in their graves.
To be honest, it’s a little bit hard to make sense of the story because it’s so screamingly stupid. Apparently, music professors are claiming that all Western classical music has “complicity in white supremacy.” This seems to include such composers as Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, and Handel, all of whom were living in continental Europe in the 17th through 19th centuries and none of whom had anything whatsoever to do with Blacks, Africa, or the slave trade.
University of Oxford considers scrapping sheet music for being ‘too colonial’ after staff raise concerns about music curriculums’ ‘complicity in white supremacy’ after Black Lives Matter movement
I mean seriously, they are insane.
You don’t remove the past to improve the future.
Professors set to reform music courses to move away from the classic repertoire
Staff argued curriculum focuses on ‘white European music from slave period’
It is thought that music writing will also be reformed to be more inclusive
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”–Frank Herbert DUNE

this lays the groundwork, you cannot control a group of people that can critically think for themselves.
They already pushed many of the classic books out because of either racism or they are to hard to read, real music elevates your brain allowing a deeper thought and understanding.
If it wasn’t for my wife and son I would so say get me off this planet they have gone nuts.

I love the “Staff argued” pun, but for the love of Leopold, this is so dumb I just want to blast some Xenakis at these big dummies until there’s nothing left of them.
Sure, yeah, it’s an outdated system, and it looks just as crappy as cursive handwriting, but it works.
I can’t get the second link to open for some reason. Do they have a plan for a new musical notation system?
ETA: I see OP added the link.
For the thrust of my challenge is aimed at the hearts
of mutant gods who think we’re all the same
They’re controlling our minds
And they use us for fortune and fame

I feel for those under the age of 18 these days. I think we can start calling them the ” Lost Generation “.

“I can’t give you a number ” he said. “I can’t give you a realistic number until we put into the factor of how we respond. If we’re complacent and don’t do really aggressive containment and mitigation the number could go way up and be involved in many many millions.”

Maybe if they want to prove that whites are not superior they should show some work of equal quality instead of trying to erase a superior artists work.

What are they replacing it with?
Taylor Swift? Dua Lipa? Beyonce?
Talentless idiots that have their music written for them. I’ll take the sheet music created by musical geniuses, anyday of the week

Damn. I can’t ii V I now because Roman numerals are racist. And I gotta burn my real book because I’m privilaged enough as it is. Do I have to delete my aebersold tracks, or since were both white we cancel each other out and it’s just music? Please, I can’t appear racist at the open mic tonight.
