In Chicago's s Art Institute had fired all of its docents reason? there are to many wealthy white ladies according to the source. This is how far this craziness of identity politics has turned into.

They fired nearly almost 100% of their employers. This firing also breaks their own rule which the Institute can be enjoyed by all races.

Chicago’s Art Institute Fires All of Its Docents: Too Many Wealthy White Ladies






In museum-speak, a docent is a trained volunteer who greets visitors and guides them through the collection, filling in details of the artists’ lives, speaking to the visual elements of the work on display and adding art-history context. The Art Institute used to have more than 100 docents, 82 of them active, until Veronica Stein, an executive director of learning and engagement, sent a Sept. 3 email canning all of them. In gratitude for their long, unpaid service—averaging 15 years each—the Art Institute offered the involuntarily retired guides a two-year free pass to the museum.

The apparent problem was that the Art Institute docents were mostly older white women of above-average financial means and with plenty of time on their hands. The institute needs to go to a more professional model, Ms. Stein explained, “in a way that allows community members of all income levels to participate, responds to issues of class and income equity, and does not require financial flexibility.”



The Art Institute of Chicago is free on Tuesdays, and is enjoyed by visitors of all races, including public school groups.

I'm sure they'll find some young minority replacements. Probably a bunch of them that look like mayor Lori lightfoot.

Volunteers are so yesterday.

And what sort of person would,
nowadaze,
what with so many qualified SJWs clamoring
at the trough...
for federal stimulus cash?

I'm fairly certain that this hiring procedure wouldn't
be influenced by any partisan values,
just like working at Google!

Docents work for free. This country fought a civil war over making minorities work for free.

They did. But here's the irony:

The volunteer docents that were too white were all volunteers, meaning they were paid nothing. They did it for free. The replacements are paid employees making slightly more than $20/hour, but ... they fit the proper diversity mold. Gotta pay for the right skin I guess.

As long as they were unvaccinated, I'm good with it.

If there's enough of an uproar, they can easily say that it was merely a post-modern performance piece intended to provoke a moving and profound emotional response in their audience.
Surely, such a successful venture demonstrates an urgent need for more funding for the arts.
Make a donation ladies and gentlemen.


Or you could smash a load of stuff up, burn some cars and terrify people with a mostly peaceful, boisterous, early Halloween celebration.

When the backlash happened, they said it wasn't racist because the ladies who were fired were encouraged to re-apply for their old jobs.

But if they were fired for not being diverse enough, then the writing was sort of one the wall, wasn't it?

Chicago needs to collectively forget the entire existence of that museum. Let them see how it feels to be devalued.

I suggest they need to do something valuable with Obama's library.

And if the writing said "let's go Brandon" they could frame it and call it art.

Technically that's graffiti. But if it was a mural...

One person's graffiti is another person's mural. Art is in the eye of the beholder.

Interpretation is everything in the art world.
