I can remember when North Charleston cancelled the Snoop concert back in the day.
"All Lives Matter!"
If all lives matter, then black lives matter. Which is the whole point of the movement. Glad you agree.
vivaladreamer said, "There is an erroneous perception in the community that BLM is anti-police".
That is laughable. Wake up lady! Either you have no idea what is going on in your own supposed moment or you are not very smart. Nicest way I can say it.
Another reason venues don't want hip hop culture is because they don't make any money off the crowd. Ask anybody that owns a bar or music venue. Go ahead and ask
It's CRYSTAL clear this event was singled out by CPD due to its connection to Black Lives Matter. There is an erroneous perception in the community that BLM is anti-police, and its obvious the powers that be at CPD subscribe to that flawed way of thinking. This was a way for Captain Searson and the department to flex their muscles and head BLM off at the pass. Period.
Additionally, to use circumstantial evidence from a completely different event, featuring a completely unrelated group of artists, presented by a completely different group of promoters to justify "safety concerns" for this event is both discriminatory and egregious.
CPD would do well to stop crimininalizing black folks and the Music Farm would do well to stop simultaneously poaching and marginalizing hip hop culture.
All Lives Matter!
If they aren't worried about "safety concerns" why should the CPD? Sounds to me instead of saying CPD helped to make them safe, they are saying the police made up reasons to keep them from having their concert. By all means... Let them have the concert and when the shooting begins, lets all meet for coffee and cake and they can take care of themselves.
You are doing yourself a disservice if you skip this album. Trust me. Not like when The Donald says "trust me," but actually trust me. He opened a show for us at the Windjammer last year, just him alone on that big stage, sitting with his lap steel listening to jaws hit the floor.
"What I miss is just the pre-internet age, where things were just a little harder to find so you had to be really dedicated to things," he says.
Well I've been trying to figure out the COMPLETE lyrics for Semper Fidelis since the album came out. Internet or not, it ain't happenin'. Still love it, though.
Dandy Warhols. Cause I like them, yeah I like them and I'm feeling so Bohemian like them. Woo hoo hoo.
"Privilege" is how white liberals explain their own racist tendencies to each other.
What's with the excessive use of the word "privilege" ?
