Outkast Performs in South Carolina

Despite a call from the NAACP for an economic boycott of the state, rappers Outkast appeared at a music festival in South Carolina.

A member of the duo told audience members that they decided to perform because they were told if they didn’t, a lot of people working at the festival would lose their jobs.

They added that they still love South Caroline and support the NAACP, despite ignoring its boycott call.

Last month, the civil rights organization asked Outkast to boycott the music festival to protest the continued use of the Confederate flag on the Statehouse grounds.

The group performed their song “Rosa Parks,” named for the woman considered to be the mother of the civil rights movement.
