Reggae and Homophobia Clash Again
There's a big reggae concert happening on Randall's Island in New York this weekend that even state politicians are trying to get shut down due to the homophobic lyrics of some of its artists.
Typically, I would say, FORWARRDDDD!!!! And big up to anyone willing to put all of that homophobic fuckery in check when it comes to reggae.
I'm not so sure how I feel about local Babylonians AKA politicians trying to squash a reggae festival as a whole. That feels invasive and if the people dem, wan hear reggae, let da people dem hear reggae.
I've spoken my piece.
