Bob Marley T-shirt incident sparks human rights complaint

WOW….I couldn’t believe when i read this piece of news recently … read on

A man plans to file a human-rights complaint against an amusement park after security guards told him to cover up his Bob Marley T-shirt or leave the premises. But Montreal’s La Ronde insists it didn’t have a problem with the shirt’s portrait of the late reggae legend — just the cluster of green, marijuana-shaped leaves that surround it. He says security staff singled him out because they associated a black man wearing a Marley shirt with something criminal.

“The onus is on Six Flags to explain to me, the Marley family, fans of Bob Marley around the world, how this T-shirt is deemed ‘inappropriate’ to ordinary families,” Moise said in a statement.

The driver cranked up the volume, leaned forward an stepped on the gas. Everyone in the car, as mellow as ever were grooving to the sounds of Bob Marley’s Sun is Shining as they coasted along the highway. As the chorus played out, the thoughts raced thru his head. “To The Rescue Here I Am”. Was Bob Marley talking about sensi when he laid down the verse ” to the rescue here I am”. The more he listened to the song the more it became clear to him that indeed it was the good ol herbs that Bob Marley was talkin about.
