Temple killings put spotlight on 'hate rock'

Temple killings put spotlight on 'hate rock' | Geography Education | Scoop.it
The killings at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin have brought a fringe genre of "hate music" out of the background and to the front of the mix.

 

BM: Hate crimes are intolerable no matter what the excuse is. But to attack some of the most peaceful and gentle people in wolrd because they "look like terrorists" is just wrong. Mistaken identity is one thing, but a misinformed public is another. One could argue that it is the media who has shaped the stereotypcial view of a terrorist. In a democracy a well informed public is vital, however I believe it is more important to have a well educated public because with that education they can interpret the news the correct way.

To use modern popular music as a your basis for an argument against anyone who is not the same whitey colour as yourself is all the more ironic considering where the American roots of it lie.
