Why Nicholas Payton Refuses To Boycott Israel (and specifically, the Red Sea Festival)Nicholas Payton - Wordpress - If I didn’t play places where I didn’t agree with their Zionist, oppressive policies, I’d have nowhere to play, starting with America.I am aware of the historical implications of the Jewish state, I am also aware of how the United States came to be.

What about the systemic, structural, and institutional racism that allows Black people to be policed and marginalized to this very day?(...) By this way of thinking, I would never again play another jazz festival or club, anywhere. Jazz itself is musical apartheid. It’s the whitewashing of Black music. It was stolen from Black people who aren’t still fully credited. 13/8/2013
