“im a big supporter of free speech and artistic expression but” - But WHAT? just not for Black Carribbean males?
Nobody forced the cancellation??Get real. Only repeated ugly threats to the venue owner and his family. Yes my friend this was a FORCED cancellation. Sad to see the Humboldt activists make excuses why in this case it is ok to ban free speech and the tactics they employ to achieve THEIR goal...i wonder if they would even know who they should target if it weren't for the internet
saying something foolish is one thing, telling people they cant't say something foolish is far worse....yes activists you managed to stop an Artist and a venue...and you are gloating and celebrating....but plenty of us see the hypocrisy and smallness you have acted with...this is step backwards for HumboldtNation....
Ill pass on the Lady Gaga and punk rock. I know you want everybody to be limited to what your preferences are, but theres a big diverse world out there...and i choose to tolerate all of it.
Your ridiculous. I Lose??? ummkay. I only lose in the fact that i cant decide for myself where i want to spend my money and decide for myself what kind of Art, Music and entertainment i choose to attend. Your attitude and gloating don't serve your cause well....for those of you that want to listen to Buju his new album "Rasta Got Soul" is nice listen of loving positive rightous tracks. My favorite album is "Too Bad" which is all-time. Go out and buy a copy
This isn't a victory for you fools.You are censoring An Artist, a venue, and countless fans.the message i get is you don't want your fellow Humboldt Bredrin and sistren to be able to decide what kind of art and artists they want to see.im feeling very frustrated over these misinformed protests and the forced cancellation(censorship) of WE THE PEOPLE OF HUMBOLDT who gladly were going to pay 30 bucks to see the Art we wanna see. im sorry there is a double standard here about tolerance and understanding and the activists that managed to cancel this show seem small-minded and full of hate themselves....if you don't like something don't spend your money on it or support it. but when you want to decide for the hundreds who have been anticipating this show that we now cant attend, you make yourselves and your cause lose allies!....you have displayed zero tolerance for what YOU don't like or agree with
