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. But a spokesman for La Ronde indicates that only the pictures of pot leaves on the shirt were considered offensive under the Six Flags’ corporate-wide dress code. “It’s not the image of Bob Marley that’s in question here,” Martin Roy said Wednesday. “It’s the dozens of marijuana leaves on the shirt that were judged by the employees as not family friendly.”

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.

Chronicles: what a decade …

Posted by Papa Roach On April - 29 - 2009

Human beings put a lotta importance on dates emphasizing birthdays, anniversaries & other useless dates such as valentines, mothers day, fathers day etc. It gives us meagre souls an excuse to look forward to something. We plan an prepare for the occassion and anytime some important day rolls around we cant control our excitement an plan an outing revolving around the importance of the occasion. Fellow admins Brudder SToner & Filter celebrated one such milestone this week. It was to this day ten years ago that they bumped into each other completely oblivious to the fact that they’d still be brothers-in-arms ten years down the road.
