What Say You?
The artist scheduled to perform was selected by STUDENT VOTING so correct me if I'm wrong but the school would just be an empty building without the student body correct? So if the school administrators move to ban Gucci Mane and OJ da Juiceman on the grounds that their lyrical content doesn't coincide with what the university stands for but the student body voted for these artist to perform, it seems to me that the administrators would like the establishment to stand for one thing but in actuality the student body are direct representatives of the university therefor setting the standard of the establishment. Do I think that having those two artist perform at a university that hopes to have any credible effect on race relations and social standards is a good idea? No. However the students have spoken and a substantial number of them have not only submitted a vote saying that they wish to have those artist perform but they have also invested their money into the performance. Tough decision.
