  • Culture and Roots

    I was really surprised by what I heard on the radio a few days ago. D12 were doing an interview on Australian radio station Triple J while they were in Australia for their recent shows. The DJ asked D12 for a comment on difficulties in regard to getting a visa. The response was something like Australia is a culture built on convicts and so doesn't have a right to judge others on their songs or past behaviour in relation to crime. I'd like to point out a few things. Australians didn't send convicts to Australia, the English did. Many convicts were sent here for very petty offences. This all happened over 200 years ago and the culture of most countries has changed, including Australia. Most of Australia's first settlers came of their own free will. If you follow the same logic as D12 then you would say Afro-American culture was built on slaves and so Afro-Americans don't have the right to comment about or against slavery.

    I know you guys make a living out of stirring up hate, aggression and being controversial, but you'll be wasting your time in Australia. Most of us are happy to live in a free, tolerant, multicultural society. We don't look to our past for excuses, but look to the future with optimism and hope. I like your music, but if you're going to provide social commentary then keep to the facts and be constructive. If you think we are too conservative or oppressive, what did you think of hearing the unedited version of purple pills at about 11.45 am on a national radio show? Australia rocks.

    Triple J is a great station when it comes to playin' explicit stuff.. not all the stations would play the unedited version.
