I just got an mail from "Reagge in the Park" stating that Cocoa Tea has been replaced by Mikey Dread. Hopefully this doesn't become a trend. If they could be banned from one city who's next?

Capleton played SF (not to mention RITP) several times past without incident, so what is the problem exactly? He even apologized in advance to show he wouldn't perform such lyrics at RITP, so dirtweed your point about "no more cancellation" is ludicrous.

It's cultural, Dirtweed.

1) >its ludicrous< - these guys aren't changing their attitude. they are only issueing apologies in order to keep working. if they can just keep from singing their gaybashing songs that would be a (sorta) change in attitude, thereby (imo) avoiding cancellations of gigs. and i think the reason for the sudden change is the intensity of the lyrics and the fact the a lot of the groups calling for action are just now becoming aware of the situationwith these singers.
2) >its cultural<. yeah i know that. but what about the cultures that practice female circumcision or the actual killing of female children. what about the culture that exists in the good ol' u.s. of a. regarding blacks. does the fact that it is cultural somehow make it right?
i don't like to see these cancellations of shows i want to see. and yes i would go see capleton perform even tho i don't agree with his views on gays. but i am not unhappy that he got cancelled. and i will go see him in sacramento (if he performs) but again, if he is cancelled i don't have a problem with that.

dirtweed, you are asking people to not be true to their own beliefs. In your initial post you stated "stop bashing gays = no more cancellations. its easy."
So Capleton, Beenie & others have agreed to stop the gay-bashing lyrics, they should be allowed to perform. Simple.

When are you guys going to get that these guys are fervent bible followers? They're not going to change their beliefs about gays. Let's say they were not going to change or stop singing their lyrics, do you think they should not be allowed to perform anywhere? If all you are saying dirtweed is that you don't agree with him, but would go anyway, what is all the arguement about? I've been saying that all along. You and Rootz have been taking your examples to the level of physical violence/damage upon another. These guys are using fire in their songs to express their beliefs about gays. That's a big difference. It's not much different from a preacher expressing the bible's views on homosexuality to his congregation. Maybe they should go back to the 50's and 60's on the islands when early bands used to have to play the songs the white tourists wanted to hear. Can't we hear anything authentic anymore or does everything have to have an American version?

Big up that statement there! Euro-American viewpoint must be followed OR ELSE. Some still arent willing to bow down, and are then labelled terrorists...

"You and Rootz have been taking your examples to the level of physical violence/damage upon another. These guys are using fire in their songs to express their beliefs about gays."

As you mentioned me by name, I guess I'll still go on, even though I'm tired of the whole subject: It's not limited to 'fiya bun'. Are the lyrics about hanging, executing, and shooting also biblical metaphors?

"It's not much different from a preacher expressing the bible's views on homosexuality to his congregation."

No. But that preacher at least is not usually picking and choosing. I'm waiting for the first "Bun adulterer" song...

One love,

Rootz

hate is hate no matter who saids it.If people don't say anything about it then silence perpetuates the hate.Yes,I have walked out on bigoted speeches or out of people's home when the hatred gets thick.Violence is violence .I have the right not to attend.I find the hippocracy ironic since reggae teaches love and tolerence.
