Fair enough and I might have jumped the gun regarding the mix up with R Kelly and Kayne West. After reading dozens of posts about race wars being waged by Latinos, and how virtually all of Hispanics are all the same, it's easy to start seeing racism in places where it is not.

No offense really taken here, but I used to respect your difference in opinion. But your lack of intelligent responses, unaltered citations, and ability to twist the words of people on this board have convinced me that you are just a foul human being.

Conversely, fans with income who support the AZ law can stop buying their records and attending their concerts throughout the whole US, not just the state of AZ. Who do you think will suffer a greater loss?

You know i am just sick and tired of the atmosphere, with these Celebrities, and Musicians alike, they think that their opinions, IS SACRED, and that all must listen to them are suppose to automatically agree with what their stance on the issues are Wrong, we are each individuals with our own minds, and just because i happen to like a group or a celebrity, does not mean that what comes out of their mouth, i am suppose to agree with, as it is with some. And just what makes any of them EXPERTS!

And when other states pass laws that are similar what then? Will they only play in a few, or a dozen or 2 dozen states?

Let's see, Rage Against the Machine held a benefit concert for a cop killer and racist Kanye West. If they're against the law, you know the law can't be all bad.
