a four bedroom house and is looking to rent it but refuses to rent it to 4 males because he/she believes young males are irresponsible that landlord can be sued for discrimination even though he.she is making a wise business decision.
I wonder where the lawsuit, where the DOJ, where the ncaap is when it comes to this? I simply cannot think of anything that more clearly IDENTIFIES ITSELF as discriminatory. They clearly say we are discriminating on the basis of race.
I won’t even touch the simplistic reasoning of Tiny Jag withdrawing because she is bi-racial but instead focus your attention on the hypocrisy, ignorance and damage done by the racists promoting this event and the lack of understanding by those writing about it and those attending. Those willing to still perform clearly worship money more than liberty and righteousness.

Event organizers didn’t return an email seeking comment.
Detroit-based rapper Jillian Graham, who goes by the stage name Tiny Jag, withdrew from the event on account of the race-based prices. “I was immediately enraged just because I am biracial,” she told the Detroit Metro Times on Thursday.
“I have family members that would have, under those circumstances, been subjected to something that I would not ever want them to be in … especially not because of anything that I have going on,” said Graham, who performed at last year’s event.
