Teacher Suspended For Playing "SameLove" In Classroom

"Same Love" by Macklemore is a song about the life and death of a gay man.  A Detroit teacher was suspended for 3 days, 2 unpaid for playing the song with controversial content.  The song forces people regardless of their beliefs to discuss Gay Rights.   

Macklemore is a musician that has been releasing music independently since 2000.  Hip Hop took notice in 2012 as he was named the Unsigned Hype in the Source Magazine and was on the cover of XXL Magazine as part of the Freshmen Class of 2012.  The song "Same Love" demonstrates the artist support of same-sex marriage and addresses his belief that homophobia is the norm promoted within the genre culture of hip hop.
