Wagner anti-Semitism was clear

In reference to a news brief published in the May 17 edition: To call Wagner’s anti-Semitism “alleged” is beyond ignorant. One of the reasons that Richard Wagner was Hitler’s favorite composer was their agreement that Jews comprised a single race. For your edification you should read the virulent anti-Semitic writings of Wagner regarding the music of Felix Mendelssohn, a Jewish convert to Christianity.
