Creative Arts Agency continuing racist action of denying black promoters access to white music acts.

> check this my people:


> so there i was riding my bike today in the streets of Los Angeles,

> when i found a protest- it was a coalition of straight anti-racist

> activists, faith groups, and black music promoters protesting against

> the Creative Arts Agency, which is at

> 9830 Wilshire Blvd

> Los Angeles, CA, 90212


> read below for the scoop- please send this out to your groups and

> have them write to the agency- at any rate, the letter thing is peace for

> now, no? (but fuck peace, we want equal rights and justice, no?)


> Form Letter




> To Richard Lovett,


> It angers and saddens me that the Creative Artists Agency is

> actively taking part in acts of hate against the black population of

> this country. By denying black promoters access to white acts, you

> are sending a message to all that you wish to continue the subtle

> segregation that the civil rights movements and continued activist

> movements have not been able to eradicate.

> Racism hurts everyone one of us, no matter the aggressor.

> The consequences of this unfortunate policy that your agency

> continues contribute to a society wide structure of hate that you

> should be ashamed to be upholding.

> Please rectify the situation at once and bring black

> promoters into the circle of inclusion in which they belong. This

> move by your agency would also be symbolic of a greater commitment to

> social justice in general. Businesses do have a responsibility to

> the public. Your racist policies are hurting the Los Angeles

> community and the United States as a whole.

> Thank you for your time. I hope that you truly do take these

> words to heart.


> Sincerely,
