The Hideous Truth About ‘Classical’ Music

As the slow, creeping tide of anti-racism begins to rush like a tsunami across the western world, whites are beginning to realize that the game is up, and that everything that their racist culture has created is fair game for progressives. First we said that they were privileged, and they bowed their heads in shame. Then we said that their ancestors were racists, and they dutifully tore down their statues and erected people of color in their place, usually ones who fought against white racism. Then we said that their flags were racist, and they fearfully tore their bumper stickers off the backs of their pickup trucks. Then we said that their national anthem was racist, and many of them agreed. And now we’re moving on to their art, theater, literature and music. That too is racist and simply has to go.

The sad thing is, many middle class whites who consider themselves progressives, still unashamedly enjoy ancient white musical works that they ignorantly assume to be the entire embodiment of “classical music”. You can’t just take a word “classical” and apply it to white music only! That would be like taking the word “progressive” or “liberal” and tying it to your ideology only. Talk about poisoning the well! Of course, in reality, the term ‘classical music’ should include all historical music from all cultures, which is equal to or superior to white classical music in every instance.

Take for example this ancient African drumming piece, considered by many scholars of world music to be one of the most sophisticated and heart rendering pieces ever produced on the African continent:

Wow – I’m simply in tears. That was so beautiful. Now compare this to one of the white supremacists’ classical favorites by their hero Johann Sebastian Bach, a German Nazi:

Can’t you see the equivalence? If you can’t, then you’re a racist and an Afrophobe who has been so insulated from worldly tribal music that it’s time to climb down from your ivory tower and check your privilege.

Now let’s take a look at some traditional Indonesian choral music from the beautiful tropical island of Bali:

I don’t know about you, but that sent shivers down my spine – and I don’t mean in the sense of being in awe of a natural wonder in a nature documentary. I mean it was awe inspiring like Beethoven’s 9th symphony. And I’m sure that you, my treasured progressive readers, feel the same. Now again, compare this to an astonishingly pretentious and desperate attempt to wow us from the Vatican’s Italian choir, a country who also allied with the Nazis:

When you compare music from around the world, including the accompanying architecture and decor, the equivalence of creativity, industriousness and general ability is clear to see. It’s time for the term ‘classical’ music to be expanded to include all historical music, or to be discarded as a racist term that has no place in a modern, diverse society. Classical music, as it stands, represents white supremacy, a term that, as you can see from the videos above, has no validity whatsoever. It’s time for a new age of cultural equivalence. A world in which no single race or culture attempts to outshine another, and everybody can have grandiose egos and feel supremely adequate. It’s time for western civilization to check its privilege once and for all.

People in a Mozart concert stay stiff while listening, like frozen bodies in a mortuary. The Balinese monkey dance is lively, and in tune with nature. So this is not comedy, MDB has a valid point.

Main problem with classical music is too many notes!!

(Amadeus) Mozart was the worst example of this

Amadeus was one of the worst offenders!

Too many notes. Not enough rhythm.

“awe inspiring like Beethoven’s 9th symphony”

“AWE INSPIRING LIKE BEETHOVEN’S 9TH SYMPHONY”?? WTF

You mean ‘music’ which inspires Nazis to goose-step to, that sort of inspiring? Because I can’t see what other qualities that discordant “music” has?

Ode to joy? Ode to Adolf more like.

Here is another piece that triggers me everytime I hear it:

Triggering? Look at this performance and tell me that the advanced, earthy, inviting mud huts and passion of the African drummers isn’t superior to the mayo-colored screeching in this hideous stone structure.

After being pressed by black lawmakers, Facebook has finally committed to hiring a black person to serve on its board of directors. Currently, no people of color serve on Facebook’s board.

The commitment came during Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg’s visit to Capitol Hill Thursday to meet with members of the Congressional Black Caucus, as The Hill reports.

The CBC pressed her on the company’s lack of diversity.

“We got a commitment today from Ms. Sandberg that an African American will be appointed to the board of directors in the future,” said Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.), who was in the meeting, according to the Hill.

Black Lives Matter

Yes! Way to go, Congressional Black Caucus!

Awesome. The article also insinuates that the new black board member should replace the supposed gay diversity appointment of Peter Thiel, simply because he is a Trump supporter.

Loving the Alinksy strategy.

Nothing could be more Eurocentric, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, transphobic, speciesist, and climate denying as Bach’s “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”. It also has too many notes.
