This is a good move by iTunes Canada. It sends the right message.
The songs — by Jamaican dancehall artists Buju Banton, Elephant Man and TOK — contain lyrics that promote the violent killing of gays, including the lyrics, "Dance wi a dance and a bun out a freaky man" (Join our dance and let's burn out the queer man).
To all the free-speech literalists out there, how exactly does, "let's burn queer men to death," contribute to the marketplace of ideas?
I hope HMV, Archambault Inc, and Amazon.ca follow suit.
Slap Upside The Head agrees with me, I'm happy to say.
