Bob Dylan accused of racism

SO what if he was a prominent Civil Rights campaigner? Bob Dylan is still being sued for racism.

A Croatian community group is suing the veteran singer for comments he made in an interview earlier this year in Rolling Stone magazine.

Asked about America’s slavery past, Dylan said: “Blacks know that some whites didn’t want to give up slavery — that if they had their way, they would still be under the yoke, and they can’t pretend they don’t know that.

“If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood.”

  • Brick-and-mortar grocery stores are here to stay June 25, 2017
    The brick-and-mortar grocery store isn’t going away anytime soon.
