More action against homobigot recording 'artists'
Buju Banton Concert Rescheduled For Century Club; Beenie Man Still Scheduled. Jamaican Gold’s CEO, Jamie Koz, announced the other day that Buju Banton’s concert has been rescheduled for October 3, 2006 at the Century Club.
Banton openly calls for shooting gays in the head, poring acid on them and lighting them on fire.
Incidentally, this is the same venue that fellow homobigot Beenie Man is scheduled to perform 10/22.
Jasmyne has the call to action:
Banton’s management released a statement earlier this year stating that he was no longer performing his song “Boom Bye Bye,” but recent concert footage from Miami of him leading a sing along, suggests otherwise.
Black LGBT bloggers recently waged a successful campaign against the New York based LIFEbeat, the music industry’s non-profit that focuses on AIDS for its Reggae Gold Jumpoff Concert that featured Beanie Man.
Beanie Man, as you may recall, in his song “Han Up Deh,” sings, “Hang chi chi gal wid a long piece of rope.” The term “chi chi” is a Jamaican reference to homosexuality. The term is often used to refer to “chi chi men” but can also refer to lesbians (chi chi women or chi chi girls). Loosely translated, the lyrics mean, “Hang lesbians with a long piece of rope.”
Thankfully, a Buju Banton concert scheduled for tomorrow, 9/27 at 9PM at Seattle club Neumos has been cancelled.
