Remove "Gettin' Arab Money" from Radio Playlist, offical Music Sites, Youtube
Petition Background (Preamble):
Such lyrics portray Arabs as being ancient and unmodernized, and provides those in the west with sentiments of superiority. Such sentiments lead to prejudice, intolerance, and bigotry.
If such a song were to be released by Arabs targeting Jews, by white Americans targeting African-Americans, or by Latinos targeting Asians, such widespread acceptance would not be present. The slanderous aspects of cinematic and musical history that has been essentially unchallenged must come to an end.
The persistence of these images over time will served to naturalize prejudicial attitudes towards Arabs and Arab culture, and in the process reinforce a narrow view of individual Arabs, indirectly effecting US domestic and international policies. “Gettin’ Arab Money” must be removed from station play-lists, as there is an urgent need for counter-narratives that do justice to the diversity and humanity of Arab people and the reality and richness of Arab culture.
