Living in Oblivion

Re Chisun Lee's article about the hip-hop duo Dead Prez being banned from performing at some New York City clubs ["Taking the Rap," September 12]: So much for free speech. Why is it OK for Marilyn Manson to get onstage and promote depression and glorify death? White boy Eminem can rap till he turns blue about killing his wife and dosing teenagers with illegal drugs. God forbid, an intelligent black artist, with a sense of well-deserved self-pride, comes onstage and talks about struggle and standing up for yourself against injustice. How much more oblivious can the system be to their obsession with oppression?
