Bob Dylan Sued for Racism

Posted by - 02:12 PM on 12/02/13
A Croatian community association in France is suing Bob Dylan and the French version of Rolling Stone magazine for racism.
Dylan, of course, was at the vanguard of the artistic wing of the Civil Rights movement, so it may seem impossible that anyone could accuse him of such a thing. But the Croatian group appears not to have appreciated comments made in Rolling Stone’s cover interview of Dylan from this September.

What he said was pretty spot on. This just clarifies how stupid people are when it comes to the subject.

Is he not at the age where everything he says can be dismissed as hilarious senility? Seriously though this is ridiculous.

Err, those were her injuries. I think suing culture is ridiculous, but who can blame her for taking legal action for that?
