There are certain musical artists who I love to listen to but can’t reconcile with my personal ethics.

I wish I could stop listening to them, but their music is so good!

For example:
Immortal Technique, Sizzla, MF DOOM– homophobic.
Mystikal– forced a girl to give him head (with the help of his body guards) because HE owed HER money.
Rihanna– still hangs out with/collaborates with her abusive, sexist ex.

Speaking of which, why do I feel I can’t boycott this music but have no trouble boycotting Chris Brown?
Because I knew he was an asshole BEFORE I heard his music– with the rest, I didn’t know until it was too late.
