Volunteer removed for refusing to give up Front Row for POCs

The Halifax Pop Explosion music festival is apologizing for the actions of a volunteer who interrupted a performance by Polaris Prize-winning singer Lido Pimienta with “overt racism.”

A statement on behalf of the festival’s board of directors addresses the singer directly and promises to make changes to improve “anti-oppression and anti-racism training” over the next year.

“We are sorry that one of our volunteers interrupted your art, your show, and your audience by being aggressive and racist,” reads a Facebook post signed by vice-chairman Georgie Dudka.

The Halifax festival says the incident involved a white volunteer photographer and several white audience members who reacted negatively when Pimienta invited “brown girls to the front” during her Oct. 19 show.

....

O’Manique says the problems started when the volunteer female photographer refused to step away from her spot near the front. It led to a clash with nearby audience members who became angered over her insistence on remaining near the stage to take photos, says O’Manique, who performs as dream-pop act Trails and shares management with Pimienta.

“She just kept saying, ‘Move to the back,”‘ says O’Manique.

“Finally after saying it about 10 times — and the woman refused to move — (Pimienta) said, ‘You’re cutting into my set time and you’re disrespecting these women, and I don’t have time for this.”‘

Event organizers say the volunteer was removed from the show and ultimately chose to sever ties with the festival.

Pimienta’s management did not respond to requests for comment.

That's right, the White Rosa Parks - "Go on back, Whitey, or you're a racist!"

"We're so sorry this racist White Woman refused to move to the back when politely asked to give up her position for Colored People"

I hate when people do things that upset important people like lido. Especially if they interrupt her art.

How about "white leftist's" racism toward whites? Towards themselves? Do they hate themselves because they are white? How does that work?

Lido who?


Apparently, her entire career (FWTW, not much) is built around hating on Whites, esp. Males.

She's an oppressed "Queer" "Afro-Caribbean-Indian" woman from Columbia, who only moved to Canada 10 years ago, but got an "Art Criticism" degree, and is over 30 years old, when she released her first "album" apparently upon arrival in Canada) on an unheard of LA Record Label. Her second album, that nobody would touch, was self-published like every garage band on Youtube and last.fm etc. that won some prize nobody ever heard of. Whic h I'm guessing is some no-account Canadian prize because it's called "Polaris Prize" so not really interested.

Given her first act in Canada was to attend college for a BS Degree in Art Criticism, and she already spoke English well enough to attend college, $5 says her parents are fairly well off or better. I'm multi-instrumental too, I can barely play the guitar and the piano, both. Here is a piece on her from an heavily-dependent-on Escort advertising "Art" paper in Toronto:

The whole piece is one racist, sexist whinge against Whites and Males, whose country she prefers to live in rather than "Brown" Columbia.

When the Campaign for Social Justice ends is a complete bust, just like the Metal/D&D Satanic.Panic did, all of these talentless 'artists' and opinion "leaders" will very soon be out of a job.

PS The Polaris Prize is only for "Canadian Artists" without regard to genre, etc. It's done by jury selection, like the Sci-Fi Hugo Awards, and since membership is small and most don't submit any nominees, it's real easy to nominate your friends and "allies". I believe the Hugos were subverted by Vox Day not long ago, himself and his supporters managed to rig the awards away from SJWs and to Right Wing Authors, to much wailing and gnashing of the teeth.

It’s not “reverse racist”. It’s racist.

Fuck you, you ass clown name one instance where something so blatantly racist ever took place in America or Western countries since 1964.
Where it didn't create a international outrage, and a court query into the alleged event.

Remember ass clowns you can't make rules for other idiots while you continue your same old crass shit. The series of events of your Liberal Utopia imploding around you spite of your decades and decades of Liberal Filth policies and best efforts. People are saying enough of your hypocritical sanctimonious bullshit!
