The lyrics of Childish Gambino proliferate the ideals of rape culture, as well as many comments he has made in the media. We do not feel comfortable using our student dollars to sponsor this artist at our school. We want SUBOG to recognize that the school-sponsored concert featuring Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) presents harmful messages to the community. The idea behind holding a forum would give students the chance to express their views on how the attitudes surrounding the proposed artist(s) may impact the community's well-being.

      I think that music should be pleasing to the ear for everyone. Much of today's music is simply terrible, and difficult to listen to. Childish Gambino is no exception. It is no doubt that Gambino is Childish. We don't need an inconsiderate fool.

      As an educational institution, it is important that we don't promote expressions of violence against any group of people, including females.

      Harmful or triggering language should not be the norm in our society. Music as well as other cultural expressions should be mindful in order not to contribute to a structure that harms and marginalizes certain persons.
