  1. Exactly, there are many factors that go into creating a musician, but it's not skin colour because that's something impossible to measure because it's ultimately an illusion, just as all matter is an illusion. What's real are things of a spiritual nature, things that you can;t see that are associated with character. It's you who's obsessed with skin colour. I have no reason to sing to a skin colour - it just doesn't make any sense! LOL Why just be a "watcher"? Why not do something positive to make other people feel like it's good to be alive? What do you do with respect to making people feel good to be alive? You gave one example that didn't work... instead of just being a "watcher", it may be more productive if you spent that time, instead, trying to think of another way that may inspire people to live? Not at all. I don't see people in terms of black and white. If you keep staring into the abyss, it could consume you. The grass is greenest where it's watered the most. In other words, if you only look at how brown your neighbours lawn is, and not your own, you're not keeping you're own grass watered.
  2. Which is why I asked. You obviously don't want to say how you support culture, I wonder why. It actually feels like you're helping to destroy it. I hope I'm wrong, but if I am, please show how you're supporting it. You said: "you can sing until you are blue in the face but if the wider factors i speak about deepen they will squeeze the colour and joy out of everyones lives until life becomes mere existence" You sound very dismissive of singing and you don't acknowledge that singing has any useful role in society. You're so intent on proving that the agenda is going to destroy everything that you're even happy to brush singing aside, as something inconvenient, rather than as an indication of something worth saving and therefore some worth encouraging. I see singing as a positive indication that the cabal aren't achieving their aims.
  3. It's not to do with skin colour though. Like you say, it's because of factors "besides from skin colour", but skin colour itself isn't the factor, in and of itself. Wrong, my reaction was, why can't people just learn to respect each other and get along? You want to play the same game that they play, and so you get this endless stream of one extreme feeding off the other, and so you get BLM and the extreme right - made perfectly for each other, just like the cabal wants. This does sound like victim crying. Then, why do other white people I know not share you're fear?
  4. What I don't understand about you is that you talk about wanting to save the culture, but then you don't seem to do anything to support the culture. I asked what was the last play you went to see, and you ignored the question. If culture is so important to you, why do you attack even the act of singing?
  5. Just doing "lol" doesn't mean that you've addressed the points, it just means you're brush points I made under the carpet! Good, so we're agreed - technical musical ability has nothing to do with sin colour. You're obsessed with skin colour. It doesn't bother me if Othello or Hamlet is played by a black or white person. You want to play identity politics, which is decisive and only helps the cabal's agenda, which you're doing by the bucket full. Again, I'm not blinded by skin colour. I'm interested in what's going on inside the character, not with just what's happening on the superficial surface.
  6. You're promoting a fatalist attitude and doom. Everyday, you're coming across, more and more, as someone betting on the agenda to succeed in order that you can prove that what you've been saying, all along, is true, to such an extent, you're even attacking singers. It's like your mind has been taken over by the cabal and you're doing their work for them, denying people the desire to sing because you feel unhappy because that's exactly the mentality of the cabal... they want everyone to be miserable, just like they are. I ask you again, what are you doing to make people feel alive and optimistic about the future?
  7. If you feel you're being gaslighted, you're imagining it. I didn't say everything is great. You generally exaggerate too much. I don't think the 70's were a terrible time because Britain was more white. Unlike you, I don't see things in primitive black and white terms. Life is much more complex than you think. The reason the 70's were not so good is because incidents of verbal and physical abuse were more common, not just directed at people merely because of the colour of their skin, but also because of their sexuality. It was more common for people to be verbally or violently assaulted. Things, in that respect are better now, in other ways, they are worse, but it's not a simplistic black or white issue. The difference between you and I is that I don't judge people by the colour of their skin and you still haven't acknowledged that skin colour has nothing to do with being a good musician.
  8. I don't mean "happy" in the bland sense of the word. I mean happy in the sense of making people feel that being alive is good. Apart from all the doom porn and having children, what do you do that makes people feel good to be alive?
  9. I'm not trying to get an emotional rise out of you, just trying to explain that i think you're over egging the problem, but i don't know where you live, so it may be different where you are. You're in America? Here in London, there are still many white actors and many white actors are playing white characters and race relations have never been better.
  10. In that post I said that you can learn something from reading. I didn't say that you shouldn't read what you don't like. So I ask you again, where did I say you shouldn't read what you don't like? Rob
  11. I don't have children, but at least I make people happy singing. Not sure how that qualifies as fucking u the world, but I think you're projecting. Apart from posting negative reality all the time, what do you do to make people happy?
  12. You can still see Hamlet being played by a white actor at the Globe theatre in London, for example, and plenty other plays featuring white actors. I do think you are being too emotional.
  13. Shame you can never produce any evidence to back up your CRT claims. You come across as being the type of person who thinks that only you have the answers.
  14. There are still lots of white people playing white characters on the stage, Mac, so no need to get too emotional. There's still plenty on the stage to keep you happy and you don't even have to look hard. When was the last time you went to see a good quality play, anyway? All this talk about "replacement" is over the top being too emotional.
  15. How long did you spend working for your Jewish banker masters, skitzorat?
  16. Some things were better in the past, agreed, but there were a lot of things wrong with the past that aren't with us today, but I agree it would be good to have the best of both worlds.
  17. You want to be politically correct, but like i said, I don't play that game because I'm happy to see a white person play a black character like Othello. I'm not woke, but you are. You want to be politically correct. You whinge and whine about cultural appropriation. I don't. As far as race relations are concerned, I would tell my children things have never been better. I remember what things were like in the 1970's. They're much better now. You want to go back to how things were in the past.
  18. No, I'm only doing what you're doing - highlighting the absurdity of racial identity politics.
  19. You're talking about casting but even here, if you just want to focus on that, I see nothing wrong with a black lady playing the role of white character like Anne Boleyn. By your logic, then, it would also be wrong for a white person to play great black role, such as Othello in Shakespeare's play, but that would be absurd and only bowing to the political correctness crowd, which I suspect you are a closet member thereof. Regarding singing technique on its own - singing technique has nothing to do with skin colour. A person doesn't have to be white to sing a top C, for example.
  20. Again, that's to do with casting, and nothing to do with an ability to act or sing. Acting and singing, in and of itself, has nothing to do with skin colour. What you're on about is casting - totally different kettle of fish.
  21. Perhaps you remembered it wrongly. If you quote anything I'd said that promotes identity politics, I'd like to see it, but it's not something you'll be able to find because I've never identified with any label. Even as a singer, i don't adopt labels. Labels are for pigeons. I always try to present a balanced picture. If I mention white on black prejudice, I'm always happy to say that it can be the other way round, so no, I don't make capitalise out of racial abuse. Racial prejudice and abuse is wrong, period.
  22. The things you're talking about are things to do with casting, which have no bearing on how good a singer is technically. Skin colour does not bestow a person with a better singing technique.
  23. I was asked if I was ever a victim of abuse because of the colour of my skin. If I'd have said no, I'd be lying. Did you want me to lie? And btw, I've experienced abuse from both whites and blacks, but the vast majority of black and white people are not like that. But I don't play the victim card and use it for any political agenda or to blame an entire race that I don't like. I like all races, and see people for what they are by their character rather than what their skin colour is.
  24. I don't play the victim, though, for trying to push a political agenda. I don't have any political agenda at all. Not interested in politics, let alone identity politics!
