The Beatles Refused To Play For Segregated Audiences!!!

The Beatles Refused To Play For Segregated Audiences Love Peace Equal Rights Imagine

Wow, these guys just keep getting better and better!

Recently revealed to public knowledge, The Beatles absolutely refused to play for bigots discrimination.

The four legends put it in legal writing to never play for segregated audiences in their 1965 and '66 tours.

Back then, this was a big deal. But The Beatles were never a stranger to activism, especially John Lennon, who penned:

Come together join the movement. Take a stand for human rights. Fear and hatred clouds our judgement. Free us all from endless night.

Good for them! Kind of mirrors a human rights issue we have today. Except instead of musicians refusing to play in a stand for equal rights, celebrities like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie refuse to get married!

    Only you could make the leap between segregation and gays not being allowed to marry! These two issues are polls apart, gays aren't allowed to marry but they are allowed to sit at the front of the bus.

    Re: Spanka – I think it's an excellent comparison. It's about standing up for one's beliefs and what is right and standing up against what is wrong! It's not much of a stretch to link the issues! They are both about inequality and people making a stand against it! Perez is an outstanding activist who knows what he's talking about!!!

    Yeah no one really gives a fuck if brad and angelina marry. But every wanted to see the beetles perform back in the day. So it was a little different

    I'm sorry, it's not comparable at all. Not to take anything away from the gay marriage movement as it is very important…but these were people that were fighting for their right to sit at the front of the bus and go to whatever restaurant they wanted and be able to live a normal life. It was so much bigger than gay marriage could ever be. Not to mention, the Beattles did it privately because they clearly felt it was the right thing…unlike Brangelina who bring up how they're waiting every chance they get.

    Re: starstrukk47 – i was going to say the same thing. anyone with a life doesn't care whether jolie and pitt get married. that's their own personal thing that only their family is effected by. but if the beatles could come to your town but chose not to because the venue is segregated, well that hurts the town, the venue and the fans. it makes more of an impact.

    Refusing to get married doesn't put them on the spot or inconvenience them in any way.
    It gets them off the spot. The Beatles put themselves on the line, as audiences were segregated in many places and venues who wished to host them had to jettison that policy right away or lose the Beatles; and it rebounded in millions of loyal fans for them. They stood up for a lot more than just this.

    That whole generation stood up for real change in hundreds of ways that are taken for granted now.

    No surprise there. These 4 were a leap into what modern men should be like.

    It happened because audiences weren't segregated in Britain or Canada, and the Beatles found it unbelievable and unacceptable. That's why the underground railway flourished when it did. Look up John Ware.
