... the other Black experience

Fox News is mad after Boots Riley explains on air that his band The Coup is "a punk funk communist revolution band".
LMAO! You go Boots!
Riley was invited to promote the LKWD Festival.
Below is the email Fox sent to festival organizer Kelly Flamos (sic):
"Kelly,
I wanted to talk to you about this morning. We set the interview times because have to hit specific times with live television. I had to get rid of the interview when you guys did not show on time, and now I regret putting it back in.
FOX 8 was not the time or opportunity for Boots to go on his political rant. With his statements he not only hurt our station's credibility, but also the festival's. I was looking to do a fun interview and it turned into something entirely different. We will not be reaching out for any interviews in the future."
Boohoo!

Leave it up to Faux news to act like butt-hurt ho' cakes.

Boots Riley ALWAYS kept it real and brought the Funk. I wish I was in Cleveland to see this festival.
