    Hampton College group bans afro-beat band for being 'too white'

    According to the band’s keyboard player Jason Moses, they were booked for the Hampshire Halloween bash on October 7, but last Friday – the day of the party – were shafted by the event organizer, the Hype Committee, after comments were posted on the event Facebook page disparaging the music group because they weren’t black.
    “We are appalled. The reason they (Hype) gave us was that their students felt unsafe. When we asked what made them feel that way, they had no concrete answers and the comments about us from a small group of people were deleted from the Facebook wall,” Moses told FOX411. “Our band was extremely excited to play, and although race shouldn’t even be an issue here, we are not an all-white band. We are extremely diverse and over the years have had African-American, Asian, Latino – a lot of different races and ethnicities play with us. The things said about us were not accurate.”
    Shokazoba was formed around ten years ago as a means to play tribute to and honor Fela Kuit, a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist musician and pioneer of Afro-beat music. Hampshire College is a private liberal arts college in Amherst, Massachusetts, which was opened in 1970 as an experiment in alternative education. Moses said the seemingly close-minded hypocrisy is hard to contemplate

    It is ok for another 30 years or so. When "white" is a minority then, it will be not ok.

    Whites will get their turn to be a minority soon enuff.

    White people deserved to be punished for the sins of their forefathers. It doesn't matter that many of the people weren't even born when many of these bad things happen.
