Rosa Parks was in court today going against the rap group Outkast because they used her name in a rap song that she finds offensive.
( I haven’t heard the song.)
The group says they have a right to use any name they want as it is a freedom of speech,and hide behind the first amendment.
Rosa Parks says she has a right to protect her name from being sullied, etc. Her lawyer says that because she is a civil rights hero and a leader for all people, her name should not be dragged in the mud like this. I can only agree.
I didn’t catch all of this on the news tonight, but I think I got the gist of it. ( I didn’t hear the outcome of the trial, if there was any, so if anyone knows, please let me know.)
What side do you choose?
