Bob Dylan Being Sued For “Racist” Remarks

This is not a headline you’d expect to read. However, Dylan’s remarks in a recent edition of the French version of Rolling Stone magazine have some taking issue.

A Croatian community association living in France is suing Dylan and the publication after an interview was run in the September edition where Dylan talks about discrimination and how it effects the lives of those around it. The last line is where he gets in to trouble….

This country is just too f—ed up about color. It’s a distraction. People at each other’s throats just because they are of a different color. It’s the height of insanity, and it will hold any nation back — or any neighborhood back. Or any anything back. 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.

 

Well, the organization known as The Council of Croats has decided to sue Dylan and Rolling Stone stating that his remarks are an “indictment of hatred”. The Croatian War of Independence, fought from 1992 to 1995, is obviously still a touchy issue to many. Estimates say that around 20,000 perished during this conflict.
