I guess that makes sense. They can study great black composers in other lessons.

 

Ultimately, I care as little about the skin tone of Beethoven as I would the skin tone of Socrates, or Marcus Aurelius, Homer, or Virgil. At the end of the day, who gives a shit.

 

But I do object to this woke re-writing of history agenda.

The Beethoven thing is what baffles me. It started out as what looked like a meme, but then some people took it seriously. It's silly because even if one was to believe that Beethoven powdered his face or something, there are paintings of Beethoven's family that get ignored, and like I said, there are other gifted black composers so I don't know why people focus on him.

You've probably read this ( https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/sep/07/beethoven-was-black-why-the-radical-idea-still-has-power-today ), but it seems to have originated with Samuel Coleridge-Taylor back in 1907. At least, according to that article. It's the first I've ever heard of this whole thing.

SPY DEAD George Blake dead at 98 – Notorious Brit traitor who spied for Russia dies in Moscow after betraying 600 agents
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/13576108/george-blake-dead-russia-moscow/

 

In this era, treason was easy to recognise, yet in our own time treason is shameless, parading itself in full public view wearing a cloak of 'humanitarianism'
