1/3 of the Detroit Holy Trinity, Derrick May has been accused of several instances of sexual assault. Both Dj Mag and RA have now outlined a timeline of complacency with these action, as they only reported on this in response to the overwhelming amount of stories, but routinely maintained his glorified legacy otherwise.
May offered this feeble retort:
"As a black man working in a white-dominated and openly biased industry, am I expected to have learned the painful lesson that there is no such thing as truth, fairness, or due process?
When will the long, storied history of weaponizing the sexuality of African American men end?
Must I collaborate under duress with my own victimization at the hands of an openly hostile press that amplifies the so-called fears of privileged, anonymous women in an internet-mediated lynching?
I have no interest in legitimizing these distortions.
Women are the conduit of life, and as such, are to be protected, and not exploited. I live by those words."
What gives? Im convinced the history of techno has always been a covert home for evil after everything ive read and witnessed on social media and in techno clubs, and theres not enough people willing to perform historical ret-con’s to save face anymore, but they wont break the perpetual loop. im convinced DJ Mag and RA and all those complicit are pure scum. is techno built on lies? discuss
