So what if the artist committed some act of abuse, whether it be sexual, emotional or physical? Would we still keep that song in our library? Even if we don’t personally condone of their abusive actions, if we continue to support their music we are granting them the satisfaction of knowing no matter what they do, there will be no repercussions, as they will still always be successful and have a fanbase.

The Coronavirus and Subtle Racism

I know. Everyone is sick and tired about hearing about the Coronavirus. We’ve been in quarantine for so long that I don’t even keep track of what the date is anymore (time is a social construct anyway).
