So, how does an audition process based on meritocracy square itself with SJW notions of "equity", "inclusion", etc. Quota systems?

Sorry but the statement is a great example of speaking to a target audience that probably doesn’t speak the same lingo you do. Would be like me explaining my IT work to my non techie family members and using all technical terms.

And anyone who gives you grief about who or what you are is GONE” So many buzz words in these statements you end up asking “what the hell did they just say”. Reminds me of a Professor Irwin Corey double talk routine. 🤔

Horns & drums playing unison parts (I realize there are warmups that do this, but this will be for the whole show)?  No one gets cut - bring back Cadets2 (& start a Cadets3, Cadets4, etc) to have enough slots for all the bodies?

(I am joking w/r/t the above).

But seriously, what it means is everyone gets a fair shot at during audition - gender, race, orientation, etc don't matter.  This is what is meant by 'pursuit of happiness'.

This is why I'm an educator.

So was I. However, I taught during the time that we preferred to be called teachers and students were not moved up based on social promotion,
