Political Lobby or Hate speech?
(Caution: Serious zone!)
There was a sensational polemic, especially in Turkey, when Greek Cypriot people lobbied against Jennifer Lopez?s planned concert in Northern Cyprus where ?pre-dominantly? Turkish people reside.
Why? Because they are Turkish and they* don?t show any ?reasonable? reason!
A month or less ago, when Jennifer Lopez was getting ready to go to Cyprus; 20 thousand people influenced J-Lo through Facebook group and now according to the British newspaper the Sun, the Greek newspaper Politis published an op-edentitled as ?War against Rihanna? which is very fascist, racist and is full of hate speech. Also according to what the Greek newspaper said, on Facebook the ?anti- Rihanna concert? group has now 2.500 members and the number is climbing rapidly.
I think it doesn?t matter who sings where, but it?s a matter that the ?othering? discourses influence both south and north side of Cyprus negatively.
Still if a group doesn?t agree with Rihanna to go to North Cyprus, someone should remind them that:
(Calm down: Unserious zone)
-Rihanna has already come to Turkey and Turkish people watched her performance in June.
– Even though music includes propaganda as in especially 70?s, music is more than that.
Still if there isa problem maybe promoters can implement these:
– There can be a drawing for 100 Greek people to have free tickets.
– Rihanna can sing two Turkish songs in Greek.
Isn?t that enough for orientation? J
?They? means the pressure group that is against Rihanna to go North Cyprus; not whole Greeks.
