Status: The Album titled Shot by Bad Slave was censored due to title.  Long story short Rob boycotted CBS radio for two years.  His only live show was cancelled in Oakland after encountering racist owners that told him that because they percieved Rob a as a white person, he was not allowed the use the words "BAD SLAVE".  The context he was using the words was about his own experience being treated in unfair ways in a classist/ heirarchical system.  Other harse criticism was noted from outlets that previously embraced Rob's music.  For the record Rob identifies as part Sioux by adoption.  His view is that racism is established by the false conditioning that race even exists.   If you love people for being different as they are, that is the best way to combat hate and reject all superioity theory, which is a lie on its face.  The socialogical invention of race only serves to divide and is an ancient war tactic myth.  All one needs to do is reject it.  Of course that does not dismiss all the suffering caused by the people that suffer from oppresion and discimination or prejudice in its many forms, but one step forward for humanity is to use love to reject lies and work on bias within each one of us.  Refuse to be a catalyst for systems of heirarchy and you can see the hatred only serves to divide- which is a complete illusion and lie.  Love is a big part of the solution and healing.  However, Rob's work is gaining acceptance regardless the censorship.

Action needed:Locate sponsors to complete the promo run/ publishing and license bids. Locate additional producers to complete the album and locate collaborators to participate in music productions. Ten tracks still need to be completed. Raise cash to pay recording artists for their time helping to polish the best songs.Develop a partnership-marketing contract for a portion of proceeds to fund licensing/marketing.
