This article is poorly writen and is garbage. This is more trash for the Arcata journal!
Most of your claims are very exagerated, and your letter sounds more like a hate speech of its own! You have compleatly overreacted. Also you fail to leave out that this was not a motion by the community to get this show canceled. This was a deliberate act by a handfull of extream gay activist from arcata/eureka area who were butt hurt over the idea that buju banton was coming to humboldt. So they decited to show there political gayness force and ruin what would of been a perfectly good concert. Somehow this author would like to say that people who listen to reggae music specificly buju banton must all be a group of bigot racist assholes who want nothing more than to murder all gays and that is why they are going to the concert is to show up for the "hate fest". This could be nowhere near the truth! I dont understand what the conflict is, buju banton wrote one song called boom bye bye. The song was writen when buju was 15 and it was in response to a very public rape case at the time in witch a predatory man was raping young boys. Yes it is somewhat wrong to sing songs about killing people etc. But this is no diffrent than any what is said in any other type of music. What can be said about this is that just like the christian community now the gay community must force its ethics and morals upon everyone else. Well i for one will not take it! Everyone has the right to listen to what music they want. Let it be known that there will be a Freedom festival in humboldt very soon, the details are still in the works, but we will be bringing buju banton back to humboldt to perform! This concert will not be stoped by any means! It will be held on private property and will be held to raise awareness of freedom of speech, Buju will be playing boom bye bye and the gay community will not be invited!
PEACE LOVE RESPECT
