Tired of listening to “God Bless America” (which he thought unrealistic and complacent apparently), Woody Guthrie wrote and published “This Land is Your Land” in 1945.
I hate the fact they play “God Bless America” during baseball games and I like Woody Guthrie even more now that I know that he didn’t like “God Bless America.” Read a lot of details about “This Land is Your Land” on Wikipedia.
We here at Common Folk support positivity and people creatively being whoever they are, pushing the boundaries of everyone’s artistic voice. With that being said, it is with good conscious that we remove Jarren Benton’s new album from the Tuesday Forecast for being rife with homophobia and ignorance. I don’t know this man nor am I wholly passing judgement that he’s a horrible person but this hate has reached the limit and just can’t be tolerated. Point blank.
To take a quote “You a bitch, you probably picket for gay rights.”
Well, you got part of it, we’re not bitches but we definitely picket for ALL EQUAL RIGHTS, homosexuals definitely included. I don’t get it, please tell me what’s so bitch about standing up for equal rights?
I can’t even call it infantile because an infant hasn’t yet learned to hate like this and really doesn’t discriminate based on gender, race, or sexual orientation. So sad to say homie, but you need to learn a lesson from the babies.
Well, not a whole lot on the verbal hip hop this week. Pretty much just Jarren Benton, who kind of sounds between early Eminem and Danny Brown, for better and/or worse, not quite sure about it. Beyond there is some hip hop mixed in with the indie, electronic freak out of Blood Orange that I’m kinda feeling. Then there’s instrumental hip hop, electronic, boom bip blap, noise, ambient, out there stuff. Test the waters before you dive in.
*Jarren Benton’s album has been removed because we don’t condone his homophobia, plain and simple. Read more here.
