Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Calling famous classical music composers just by their last names can be "harmful" nowadays, according to an article published in US liberal magazine Slate. The piece was instantly mocked online.


"What silliness at Slate!" one tweet read. "Dede isn't the musical equal of Beethoven. Fame not racism allows us to identify the composer by surname alone. That goes for Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, too. And artists and scientists like Picasso and Einstein, also."
