Left-wing social justice warriors often control music festivals put on around the country.
And the AfroFuture festival is not an exception.
But what they did at this music festival will make your jaw drop.
Many Leftists have been calling for reparations for black men and women who can trace their family tree back to slavery in the United States.
But one music festival took it upon themselves to serve their own bizarre version of racial justice.
The AfroFuture music festival decided to charge white people double the cost of a ticket that a black person was asked to pay.
Now, attendees and musicians are learning of this racist practice and all hell has broken loose.
The AfroFuture music festival in Detroit is charging white people double the price for a ticket compared with people of color, in a move they claim will ensure marginalized groups are given “equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community.”
The festival, scheduled to take place August 3rd, offers different pricing structures depending on whether the attendee is white or a “person of color.” For white people, or “non-persons of color,” early bird tickets cost $10, compared with $20 for people of color. For those purchasing tickets closer to the event, white people will pay $40, compared with $20 for people of color.
The organizers of the event explain the reasons behind their discriminatory system in the “Frequently Asked Questions” section of their website, although it is still unclear how they intend to validate the race and identity of ticket purchasers.
Upon hearing the news that the music festival was charging white people double, one of the rappers, Tiny Jag, decided to cancel her appearance.
She stated she did not support such a discriminatory practice.
The organizers of the music festival have naturally received a great deal of backlash.
Now, they have reversed their policy and are charging black and white people the same price.
What the Left doesn’t understand is that their so-called “solutions” to racial inequality are in fact racist.
If a music festival attempted to charge black men and women double the ticket price, they would be met with legal action and pay tremendous consequences.
What do you think?
Should the AfroFuture music festival face legal charges for discrimination?
