Rapper/ Producer Kanye West is the latest musician to join the musical boycott of Arizona’s new immigration laws. It’s a nice gesture but I really don’t think supporters of the immigration law are really big Kanye West fans to begin with. Other musicians and celebrities joining the boycott are Rage Against the Machine, film director Michael Moore and Cypress Hill.
In case you’ve been somewhere under a rock (with Kanye post VMAs), Arizona state legislature recently passed a law, SB1070, that require local authorities to determine a person’s immigration status if he or she is suspected of being undocumented, kinda like the days of slavery where if you were claiming to be free, you better have your papers. Way to go Kanye!
