Music Fridays: Save the Rap Edition

Published

Today’s WTF story via Crommunist:

A landmark Pointe Claire Village bar that was forced to stop selling alcohol in January is expected to get back its liquor licence this week but on the condition that no hip-hop or rap bands play the bar in the future……

Human-rights experts, however, were quick to sound the alarm. Although not the first of its kind, the apparent ban on hip-hop music imposed by the Régie sends a dangerous message, said Fo Niemi.

This being Canada, it seems the first concern was the obvious racism of this, but it’s also a free speech concern, as far as I can tell. I don’t need to hammer home how this is utter bullshit, I hope.

The "Morning Joe" contributor suspects the president, whom he used to know from their days in New York City, believes impeachment is inevitable, but he's confident that Republican senators won't remove him from office.
