Racism comes to the Art Institute

I've done a huge amount of business travel, which has allowed me to extend my trips in order to visit museums and historical sites at my own expense.

The Art Institute of Chicago is absolutely top-notch, on par with the National Gallery of Art in DC. I'm particularly fond of European and American impressionism, and have spent hours in these galleries absorbing the magnificent works on display.

One thing that has been particularly helpful is the volunteer staff. You can ask them a question about a painting and receive an immense volume of information from their seemingly encyclopedic knowledge.

Sadly, I just learned that they have been fired - becuase they were White!

Chicago Art Museum Fires Unpaid Volunteers For Being White, authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News, ZeroHedge, October 14, 2021:

... The Art Institute of Chicago had been able to depend on the help of 122 highly skilled volunteers, mostly older white women, to act as guides to the Museum’s collection of 300,000 works, which they explain in great detail to visitors.

The volunteers also acted as “school group greeters” to help children understand the importance of what they were seeing.

Training requirements for the position were intense, and the volunteers were apparently doing a great job.

But now they’ve now all been dismissed for not being “diverse” enough.

“Many of the volunteers—though not all—are older white women, who have the time and resources to devote so much free labor to the Museum,” reports the Why Evolution is True blog.

“But the demographics of that group weren’t appealing to the AIC, and so, in late September, the AIC fired all of them, saying they’d be replaced by smaller number of hired volunteers workers who will be paid $25 an hour. That group will surely meet the envisioned diversity goals.”

“Paying the replacements will not result in more knowledgeable docents. But they won’t be Caucasian; that’s the important thing,” writes Dave Blount.

... A similar thing happened last month when the English Touring Opera (ETO) kicked out half of its orchestral players in an effort to prioritize “increased diversity in the orchestra.”

The act of musical ethnic cleansing was carried out in the interests of following “firm guidance of the Arts Council,” which is a government-funded body.

Once again, this all underscores the fact that the only form of institutionalized racism that remains not only acceptable, but something to be encouraged, is against white people.

So now we have institutionalized anti-White racism, as mandated by a body funded by American taxpayers. The arts suffer as a consequence, as does our Nation.

Which is, of course, the entire point.
