I am a new subscriber to your web channel today and just perusing the site. Didn’t think I would sign up but hey, I am close to removing all things Google from my world (him/her becomes they/them etc) and do at least want to support those who champion free speech (even if it is in the confines of the dark web). First thing I looked for on this Forum were the rules, since I didn’t want to get banned on the first day for some transgression that I didn’t even know existed, such as suggesting women have vaginas. Let’s see what happens.
Alex Belfield put up a post today about PRS making grants available to musicians, but only black ones of Caribbean/African descent. Whilst I am perfectly clear as to my gender, I am not so sure about my heritage. If I were to self-identify as Black Afro-Caribbean, could I claim discrimination upon refusal of a PRS grant? Do I even have the right to self-identify as black or would that make me guilty of appropriation? The world has gone completely bonkers.
