Notable Omission From List of UK Music Stars Calling For End To Racism Including “Anti-Jewish Racism”

1809

More than 700 people UK music industry artists, songwriters, producers, managers, labels, producers and companies have written this open letter calling for an end to racism, following Wiley’s online attacks against Jews.

We, representatives from the music industry, write to demonstrate and express our determination, that love, unity and friendship, not division and hatred, must and will always be our common cause.

In recent months through a series of events and incidents, the anti-black racists and antisemites, plus those who advocate islamophobia, xenophobia, homophobia and transphobia, have repeatedly demonstrated that they clearly want us all to fail. Whether it be systemic racism and racial inequality highlighted by continued police brutality in America or anti-Jewish racism promulgated through online attacks, the result is the same: suspicion, hatred and division. We are at our worst when we attack one another.

Minorities from all backgrounds and faiths have struggled and suffered. From slavery to the Holocaust we have painful collective memories. All forms of racism have the same roots – ignorance, lack of education and scapegoating. We, the British music industry are proudly uniting to amplify our voices, to take responsibility, to speak out and stand together in solidarity. Silence is not an option.

There is a global love for music, irrespective of race, religion, sexuality and gender. Music brings joy and hope and connects us all. Through music, education and empathy we can find unity. We stand together, to educate and wipe out racism now and for our future generations.

There are some serious names on this list.

You know whose name does not appear on it?



Roger Waters, who claims to oppose antisemitism, despite making some rather antisemitic statements himself.

In fact, Waters has been strangely quiet during this whole wave of Jew-hatred from celebrities like Wiley, especially given he is constantly opening his huge piehole – especially when a Jew so much as sneezes.

In fact, this has been his only post during this time

Go figure.
