‘AfroFuture’ Music Festival Charges White People Double Ticket Price, Regrets It

The AfroFuture music festival in Detroit is charging white people double the price for a ticket compared with people of color. They claim that it will ensure marginalized groups are given “equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community.” This is clearly versed racism against whites, and immediately one rapper backed by patriotic Americans made them regret it.

The festival, scheduled to take place August 3rd, offers different pricing structures depending on whether the attendee is white or a “person of color.” For white people, or “non-persons of color,” early bird tickets cost $20, compared with $10 for people of color. For those purchasing tickets closer to the event, white people will pay $40, compared with $20 for people of color.

“The organizers of the event explain the reasons behind their discriminatory system in the ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ section of their website, although it is still unclear how they intend to validate the race and identity of ticket purchasers,” Breitbart reports.

“Why do we have POC (people of color) and NONPOC (white people) tickets?” the page reads. “I’m glad you asked! Equality means treating everyone the same. Equity is insuring (sic) everyone has what they need to be successful. Our ticket structure was built to insure (sic) that the most marginalized communities (people of color) are provided with an equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community (black Detroit).”

“One artist, a mixed-race rapper named Tiny Jag, has already pulled out of the event in protest and has demanded her name be removed from all their promotional material,” Breitbart adds.

“I was immediately enraged just because I am biracial. I have family members that would have, under those circumstances, been subjected to something that I would not ever want them to be in … especially not because of anything that I have going on,” she told the Detroit Metro Times.

“It’s non-progressive and it’s not solution-focused in my eyes,” Jag continued. “It seems almost like it has spite, and unfortunately with spite comes hate, and that’s just not obviously going to be a good direction for us to go if we’re looking for positive change.”

“A lot of the songs that I perform are from my first project called Polly — that is my grandmother’s name,” she continued. “How do you want me to come to a performance and perform these songs off a mixtape that is titled after this white woman that you would have charged double to get in here? Like, it’s just outrageous from so many different angles.”

There are also questions over the legality of such a pricing system, with critics pointing to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 Title II which states: “All persons shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, and privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodation, as defined in this section, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, or national origin.”

Racism isn’t just about people of color, as the Civil Rights Act clearly states. Sure, it was based on the plight of blacks in America, however, times have changed. Now, we are seeing the rise of racism against whites, and that’s why many Americans were angry about this festival. 

Black Independent artist Zuby laid out his case against the AfroFuture Festival in a tweet that went viral:

“Wow, No news coverage? What if a white festival were charging people of color double the price, think that would get coverage?” tweeted Twitter user “Prez.”

“I grew up the daughter of a steel plant worker in Alabama!!! I WAS NOT RICH!! THE 4 OF US SHARED 1 BATHROOM!! I’M SICK OF THIS WHITE PRIVILEGE CRAP!!” tweeted Deplorable Mom 007.

It is not the first time that such entertainment venues have offered race-based pricing structures. In 2016, the Cinder Block Comedy Festival in New York offered women, people of color, and people who identify as LGBT discounted tickets for the event, while straight white men were asked to pay the full price.

We can expect to see a rise in versed racism against whites as the Democratic Party doubles down on playing identity politics. Kamala Harris is basing her whole presidential campaign on it. However, we have to believe in the end the majority of Americans will find this so loathsome they will reject the Democrats and vote for President Trump.
