World gone mad: Music conductor fired for making racist joke even though "victim" says no.

Forums - Politics Discussion - World gone mad: Music conductor fired for making racist joke even though "victim" says no.

This is week on world gone mad, another case similar to that where a student was expelled from a university for abusing his gf even though the latter says nothing of the sort happened. This time around a university fired a music conductor has been fired for making a "racist" joke with his friend. The friend, who is black, says there was nothing racist about it but we all know how liberal universities work - just hearsay is enough, no due process...

 

An acclaimed British conductor has been fired from a prestigious American music festival after a seemingly innocent joke he made to a black friend was labelled racist.

Matthew Halls was removed as artistic director of the Oregon Bach Festival following an incident in which he imitated a southern American accent while talking to his longstanding friend, the African-American classical singer Reginald Mobley.

Well, I guess that answers my question: you are making this into a series. I guess this series is trying to make it seem as though those Marxists have somehow taken over society, right? Well, I guess this is something interest to discuss, but you and I come to very different conclusions. Vive le communisme et l'anarchisme !



The guy deserves to be fired.



Time for a shitstorm. Let me start it:

Stupid liberals! They're literally worse than hitler!

That's not very flattering to Marxists.

So I guess the same would have happened if the black guy did a "racist" immitation of a white american accent ?

In all seriousness, this is borderline stupid.

Jesus, sometimes I wish everybody was fucking purple or something. This race stuff is getting old as fuck and it's never going away sadly.

Would making fun of bruised people be discrimination? I'm sure they'd implement rules against calling someone a rotten grape or something

Don't you think it is important to highlight when the institutions in power act like complete idiots? There is an odd marriage between neoliberals and communists but I'm not saying these people are communists but they are definitely hard left liberals.

Btw, I forgot your stance on the Antifa. Would you remind me what it is?

True, I guess there's no escaping it.
