Black Pussy Banned In Calgary

U.S. band’s Calgary and Regina shows rescheduled after outrage over name

“…The Saskatchewan Cultural Exchange declined to comment but referred to a statement posted online. It says that while it values artistic freedom, “those values are superseded by this artist’s creative choice in the band name Black Pussy, which is appropriative and contributes to a culture of objectification of black people, people of colour and women.”

The post received hundreds of comments, from both sides.

“Goatwhore, Aborted, Rotting Christ, Dying Fetus …. just a short list of bands I have personally seen at The Exchange that have offensive names that are much less tongue-in-cheek than Black Pussy,” wrote Kurtis Offet. “Glad I now live in Calgary where a much loved venue decided to let people decide for themselves whether or not to attend a show they deem “offensive.”

“Thank you, Exchange, for making a point that it really isn’t okay for white cis males to appropriate whatever the hell they want in order to make ‘art’ and ‘challenge’ people,” wrote Savannah Of-The Woods. “It’s not art and it’s not a challenge, it’s an unoriginal continuation of a history of violence toward POC [people of colour] and women.”

    Reminds me when Baabaawa Hall banned the Bare Naked Ladies from performing at Nathan Philip Square. The left just love diversity.

    You could have called it Black Beaver.

    You stupid Sons of Bitches should book yourselves into Chicago and call yourselves the ‘White Niggers’. See how that works our for you.
    I don’t think this is funny.

    when a woman screams black pussy though it’s empowerment. all the band has to do is self identify AS women and/or black women.
