(AP Photo/Richard Drew) When Alabama goes woke, you know it’s all over.
The University of Alabama’s Department of Theatre and Dance has announced it will assist audiences in processing upcoming plays.
According to school outlet The Crimson White , U of A’s added “diversity statements” to its list of 2020-21 productions.
As stated by TCW , the purpose is “to increase inclusivity, engage the community and promote important discussions in an entertaining way.” The…statements address issues of diversity, equity and inclusion found in each play and encourage patrons to contemplate these issues before setting foot in the theater. Some people prefer to process their entertainment organically. But for those hip to forego the heavy lifting, the school’s wearing a weight belt.
For example, theatergoers will soon savor the musical Legally Blonde. Diversity Statement: … Legally Blonde has a pressing relevance in today’s society as women increasingly step into the spotlight and speak up for their equal rights and power. The musical creates a message that goes beyond promoting mere tolerance of different ideas and perspectives. It seeks out the merit in diversity so that the entire community can benefit from it. An officer for the college’s Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion — Vice President and Associate Provost G. Christine Taylor — praised the arts’ potency: “Diversity, or in this case difference, is always around each of us; however, we may not always be attuned to it. This is the power of the arts. These performances with the diversity statements reflect the arts’ tremendous ability to engage us in a deeper way with diversity, equity and inclusion.” So if you were slow on seeing a show, doubting it would dig deeply into DEI…go ahead and get out your Sunday best.
As noted by The Crimson White , “Whether in classrooms or student organizations, the UA Department of Theatre and Dance is advocating for diversity, equity and inclusion.”
It isn’t the school’s first time to make news for modernity. In May 2020, a professor offered instructions on how to destroy statues: My Bona Fides: I’m an Egyptologist. I have worked in Egypt for 20 years and […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
