No, not in Alabama!

Show move motivated by race, say students – Tuscaloosa

The University has moved a homecoming performance by the hip-hop group the “Ying-Yang Twins” to a stage on the fringe of campus, near the hospital. In other words, in the middle of nowhere, far away from where students actually live and go about their daily activities. Meanwhile, a performance by a country singer, “Neal McCoy”, and the winner of the local “Battle of the Bands”, will perform on the Quad two hours earlier.

The University swears that this segregation separation change has nothing to do with race and is only because of logistics. I’m sure.

Seriously, this isn’t about race, it’s about age and money. The McCoy concert has nothing to do with the students. It’s for the parents and alumni who are here for homecoming. The students are getting thrown a rap group and the school probably feels that they should be grateful.

NB: I have no idea who any of these people are.
