National Day of Music Outrage

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 5, 2007

Bronze Trinity posts a press release from Al Sharpton:

“Reverend Al Sharpton, Founder and President of National Action Network (NAN), along with Tamika Mallory, Director of NAN’s Decency Initiative, has announced a national “Day of Outrage” against the continuous use in the music recording industry of the words “nigga,” “bitch” and “ho.” Reverend Sharpton, who has persistently challenged the entertainment industry on denigrating lyrics, will use August 7th to call for the withdrawal of public investments from companies that won’t clean up their act.”

    Fantastic. Finally a Civil Rights Activist who has the temerity to address one of the most important issues of the day. In the Sixties we did not patronize those who didn’t treat us with respect. This is no different. Thank you. You are in deed a true Civil Rights Activist
