Buju Banton is scheduled to perform in Atlanta on October 13th at the popular nightspot Atlanta Live to promote his new album
"Too Bad".

Buju's tour has been plagued by cancellation after cancellation due to protests from the GLBT community for his homophobic lyrics.

In a song written by Buju entitled "Boom Boom Bye" he encourages his listeners to murder gay men and pour acid on their heads. It's so ironic that he is scheduled to perform in a venue that has one of the largest gay and lesbian parties in the city every Saturday night attracting hundreds of SGL people.

If Banton refuses to quit singing Boom Boom Bye and apologize for his extremely harmful and homophobic actions we will continue to hit him where it hurts, in his pocket.

In a city with such a huge black gay population, I'm shocked that the club owners would even consider hosting a concert by an artist who advocates violence towards the very people who keeps them in business.

I urge all of my SGL brothas and sistas in Atlanta and across the country to call Atlanta Live and let management know that any artist who's goal is to divide instead of unite, to destroy rather than promote life, is not welcome in our city.

"...any artist who's goal is to divide instead of unite, to destroy rather than promote life, is not welcome in our city."

Should we also assume people should protest artists that promote drug use, violence, rape, body parts (you know what I mean), sexual acts, murder, project living, in their lyrics too? These elements also do not promote life and divide families and communities as well.

I don't hear anyone saying nothing to them.
