Madonna Booed In Bucharest!

http://whatthefuckblog.wordpress.com

Thousands of Romanian concertgoers made their displeasure known with Madonna on Wednesday, after the singer paused her show to speak out against the persecution of Gypsies in that corner of Europe. “It’s been brought to my attention that there’s a lot of discrimination against Romani and Gypsies in general in eastern Europe, and that makes me very sad,” she told the crowd of 60,000 in Bucharest. As she spoke, a vocal minority began booing her words. She did not acknowledge the jeers.

When she proclaimed, “We believe in freedom and equal rights for everyone!”, you can actually here people yelling “No!”, however the cheers of approving fans eventually drowned out the grumbling.

Many of the dancers and musicians in Madonna’s show were Gypsies, also known as Roma. According to the Associated Press, there are some 500,000 Roma in Romania, but the real number could total around 2 million. They have long faced prejudice and discrimination in eastern European nations.

http://www.foxnews.com

President Obama says he wants to reverse "Don't Ask Don't Tell," the Clinton-era policy that prevents openly gay men and women from serving in the military. But so far the White House has been noncommittal about how and when he will try to make that happen. In an effort to prod the president and Congress to act, activists -- gay, straight, military and civilian -- will converge on Capitol Hill Friday to rally behind an effort in the House to overturn the policy, which has been a continuing source of controversy since it became law 15 years ago.

“At a time when our military's readiness is strained to the breaking point from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the armed forces continue to discharge vital service members under the outdated, outmoded 'don't ask, don't tell' policy,” the Virginia Democrat said. “Our allies have overcome this issue, facing no adverse consequences from lifting bans focused on soldiers' sexual orientation.”
