Riz is a freakin' treasure! Smart, funny, kind and an awesome DJ to boot!

@ 21, I care and I'll be there. Frankly, this thread is an indicator of their ability/decision to feel comfortable spreading hate here. Denial, apathy and snark.... It's horrible, there have gay bashing and shootings on the hill, and yet some of us feel it's actually silly to counter protest fascists? How depressing. I'll be there. If it doesn't happen, I've "wasted" an hour of my life hanging out with people who believe in standing up against racist radicals.

Love Sand - especially the cover by OP8! The first time I heard this song, I had to track it down ... in all of its inceptions!

The ability to ignore this man is an example of white privilege.

I really can't get into this! I'm sure it's *only* because I've met most of our city council servants (now I'm too squicked out to say member)!

Okay, I can totally see where someone *might* kinda hate this guy, BUT, I'm sort of torn.... Okay, yes, he's got that whole 'white boy soul' going on, and he is definitely lacking the blues aspect of rhythm and blues, but what exactly can a white boy do when he has a voice like that? I'm asking seriously; I mean, really, I feel like I should actually congratulate him for not joining a boy band!

"I think they had a really strong and powerful message, but it was going to be lost because of the delivery," said Julie.

"I think they had a really strong message, but I am willing and able to let the fact that I was uncomfortable keep me from trying to understand it."

There, fixed that for you.

Talking about the review/reviewer was a dick move, particularly when the reviewer tried to contact him prior to publication. The truth was, he "couldn't be bothered" to respond, but was bothered by the resulting attention, and handled it badly.

In light of that, she has every right to be a little defensive here - she has been, essentially, attacked and defamed, whereas he had an opportunity to positively impact the outcome of the review and botched it.
