Dated: 09/07/19

Detroit rapper Tiny Jag pulled out of AfroFuture Fest music festival when she found out “non-POCs” were paying more than people of color. She learned the early bird POC ticket was $10 while the early bird “non-POC” ticket cost $20. She became enraged by this as she is biracial and many of her family members would be forced to pay this higher price. The festival defends this by saying "OUR TICKET STRUCTURE WAS BUILT TO INSURE THAT THE MOST MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES (PEOPLE OF COLOR) ARE PROVIDED WITH AN EQUITABLE CHANCE AT ENJOYING EVENTS IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITY".
