If the government is imposing bans on rappers who make use of swear words as a part of their lyrics, in that scenario I think not too many rappers would perform in our country, …Eminem and his concerts have been, no less than convicted of inciting violence and for posing a potential threat to the nation’s overall public interest.
This entire state of affairs is much beyond my comprehension skills…There has been no confirmation on the dates regarding Eminem’s playing live in Australia, yet several pressure groups who belong to this own land of Australia are making all kinds of efforts to dissuade this outstanding rapper Eminem from performing in diverse parts of Australia.
I completely respect all my fellow Australians to be so concerned and thoughtful towards the interest of the country. There is no denying that it is our moral responsibility to take care of our youth and to channelize their energies towards positivity, but terming Eminem as ‘hate rapper’ and banning his entry in Australia, would in no circumstances prevent our youth from going astray…
In fact there are a number of ways to sort out things in a much better way. Like I read in the newspaper one of these days that youngsters below the age of 18 shouldn’t be permitted right of entry… this however sounds a bit sensible and believe me, we are not justified in taking away the credibility that this Grammy Award winner has earned for himself over the past few decades.
Attaching adjectives such as homophobic, sexist, racist and violence provoking to this incredible rapping artist somehow leads to an incorrect projection of people as well as systems of our own country, in other parts of the world.
