I support the causes of justice and equality. I do not support the record industry and its slactivist ‘blackout’ protest. Coming from an industry that has a history of exploiting minorities by appropriating their culture and white washing it anyway they could, it’s laughable. I won’t be part of it, no matter how well intentioned.
Now is not the time to stop the music. We need artists to be creating anthems to sooth, educate and inspire. Now is the time to play it LOUDER and with FORCE. Right now, someone out there is writing the songs for the next revolution. Not a single day should be silent.
