Tonight, a fraternity is hosting Afroman. Afroman’s performance has included songs such as “She Won’t Let Me Fucc” and two others linked below:
He was also reported to have performed a song about “slapping a girl until she gives you a blow job” and “I’ll fuck a bitch or I’ll kill her.”
These lyrics are unacceptable in any context, but they are wholly out of place on University property. As with Juicy J, students should not willfully ignore these inhumane and degrading lyrics or promote such a performance, especially at a school that has such a problem with sexual assault.
W&L Senior Anna Kathryn Barnes wrote an exceptional blog about the power of storytelling especially in relation to sexual violence for the Shenandoah blog.
