Woke Tony Awards bashes white people, lauds ‘big, black and queer-a** American Broadway’

The Tony Awards, which celebrate the accomplishments of Broadway productions, have undeniably gone woke, a decision that hasn’t gone over well with their other award show counterparts such as the Oscars and the Grammys.

During Sunday night’s production of the 75th Annual Tony Awards, actress and host Ariana DeBose decided to make her opening monologue about a bit more than awards, productions, and Broadway. She decided to make it about race and gender.

“While we have not solved all of our problems, I feel like the phrase “Great white way” is becoming more of a nickname than a ‘How to’ guide,” she snarked. “And here’s why: This season featured new shows written by seven black playwrights. Yeah! It brought us a gender-flipped production of ‘Company.’ And tonight, Lynn Nottage is the only playwright ever to be nominated for both best play and best book of a musical in the same season.”

“L. Morgan Lee is the first openly transgender performer to be nominated for a Tony, and she won’t be the last. Scenic designer Adam Rigg is the first out agender nominee. Composer Toby Marlow is the first non-binary winner. Wow,” she continued, to applause.

But that wasn’t the end of the woke virtue signaling.

After all, it is Pride Month, so what would complete a pandering award show quite like a musical number from A Strange Loop, co-produced by Ru Paul?

The production was awarded Best Musical, and it’s not hard to see why; it hit all the right (or in this case, left) buttons.

The lyrics:

How many minutes til the end of intermission? Is that how the show should open? Should there even be a show? No, it should start with what he’s thinking which is just a cursor blinking cause of all of the directions that the narrative could go?

He wants to show what it’s like to live up here and travel the world in a fat, black queer body.

How many minutes til the end of intermission? No one cares about a writer who is struggling to write. They’ll say it’s way too repetitious and so overly ambitious which of course makes them suspicious that you think you’re trying to be white.

He has to fight for his right to live in a world that chews up and spits out black queers on the daily.

Blackness, queerness fighting back to fill this cis-het all-white space with a portrait of a portrait of a portrait of a black queer face and a choir full of black queer voices and also bass all thoughts (snapping fingers) That are casting spells to conjure up a…

Big, black and queer-ass American Broadway.

Big, black and queer-ass American Broadway. Big, black and queer-ass American Broadway.

 

The lyrics go on to claim systemic racism and imply that if you can’t make content that appeals to white people, you’ll never make it.

“If you can’t please the Caucasians you will never get the dough. Cause critics clinically deny us then deny implicit bias with their vanity supported by a system that’s distorted.”

Ironic, from a production that just won Best Musical.
