(FREE WEST MEDIA) – The English Touring Opera (ETO) has fired half of its musicians in order to increase "diversity". This is yet another example which shows that being "diverse" in new-speak implies not being diverse because it excludes whites.
Those affected are 14 white people aged 40 to 66 years, the Daily Mail reported. They were informed that they would not receive any new contracts for the new season from spring 2022.
“English Touring Opera is committed to promoting all kinds of diversity in their team, and while there has been tangible, steady progress on stage in this area, we have prioritized greater diversity in the orchestra. This is in line with the strict requirements of the Arts Council, the main financier of the ETO’s touring activities, and most of the foundation funds that support the ETO,” the paper quoted from the letter from Director James Conway to the musicians concerned.
