BBC Radio 1Xtra – Hip Hop Mix with Charlie Sloth.

15 05 2011

Palestine.

Is that offensive?
Is it a curse word?
Is it a racist word?
Is it a degrading word?

No, it’s none of those. It’s a Country! A country that is denied its existance, a country whose people live in prisons in their own homes, a country whose people die everyday, a country which is occupied by Israel.

So why was it censored out of a song on BBC Radio 1Xtra?

During the Hip Hop Mix show with Charlie Sloth, Mic Righteous sang the words ‘Free Palestine’ they were filered out 3 mins into the song.
