    That's racist. Think about it.

    How diverse is the Atlanta Hawks basketball team?

    They're right. I looked at the short film clips and saw almost no blonds with blue eyes.

    I wonder if they would say the same thing to Frederick Douglass H.S.'s chorus?

    It's Atlanta...the Chicago of the south. The whole place is going down the drain.

    Good move. This will drive away all but the most mindlessly liberal of the ASO's patrons and it can die its inevitable death. It's already $20 million in debt.

    Maybe it can become a rap group.

    How many have noticed there are a lot more "white" zombies in the Walking Dead when they are in Atlanta than "minority" zombies. :whistling:

    I looked at ASO's Musicians pages and there is one black, a few hispanics, several asians, and the rest whites.

    BTW: the conductors are all white men.

    Pot calling the kettle black?

    Diverse nowadays has less to do with race and more to with sexual preferences. I guess the white guys in charge want a rainbow representation.

    On to the next thread...

    They won't share the diversity information of their musicians, and I bet the school didn't share it on their kids, so how would anyone know?

    The chorus might be very diverse.

    Should it really even matter?

    ETA - The video in the OP clearly shows the make-up of one school.

    Race and ethnicity are not visual. They are check boxes on a form. There is no way to validate them.
