Clearly, you can’t just hush that fuss . The suit that Rosa Parks brought against Outkast for their song entitled, “Rosa Parks,” that was dismissed in 1999 has been re-opened. Apparently, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals (heard of them before?) decided that Oukast’s use of the name Rosa Parks needed to be better justifiied. I am so glad we have come to the point that we think that the world is in such harmony that Civil Rights activists could really think their image was tarnished by a single from an album. Maybe Todd Boyd is right about “hip hop killed the Civil Rights Era.”
