The Chevy Court acts announced so far point to the 2018 New York State Fair putting a premium on diversity in its concert lineup. With five musical acts and one rapper booked, a variety of styles, ages and cultures are represented and that’s just how it should be done.
The usual variety of lunkheads have weighed in, responding to related articles on our local daily paper’s website, displaying both their ignorance and intolerance.
Here’ a hint: if you don’t know the performer, maybe he/she/they don’t fit your taste. If the only comment you can make is sarcastic and critical, apparently this act isn’t one you’ll enjoy. Either way, watch for shows you want to see and go to the Fair on those days.
On days when the act isn’t what you enjoy, don’t go. But recognize that someone else may enjoy them and accept the fact that diversity is both fair-minded and good business.
