At the 1998 Sumfest Reggae concert in Jamaica, Sizzla urged his audience to “Burn all white people”:

"Sizzla sported controversy when he made public endorsements at the 1998 Reggae Sumfest Festival in Montego Bay. During his performance he agitated his audience, and in particular the world press, after denouncing Queen Elizabeth II, homosexuals, and even the Sumfest Festival. He saved his most controversial racist diatribe for the finale when he stated, "Burn all white people in Jamaica", this led to a stunned silence from the multi-racial crowd. His attempts to win approval failed, which resulted in a talented performer being regarded as an embarrassment to Jamaican music"
nothing like that

The crowd did not go silence.I was working there at the time.it did shock some of the people... His comment was not racist.I am a white man and I was not offended.

Ay, it's p**syclaat pagans who nuh overstand dem message through the shadows of izm schism. You haffi realize, that it is very different to grow up as an African descendant of slaves, violently raped and robbed from your culture. When u gwan fi deh pon de garrison of violence and post-colonization, on an island with more fundamentalist churches per capita than any nation in the world, Tings fi gwan a likkle different than F**Ckn Switzlerand. I am a white Jew, I have lived in Africa, & seen Sizzla inna the flesh, in JA & USA. The bredda merely releases his soul through the best ways he knows how: Unadulterated, unapologetic, 1 chance in life, positive expression of aggression- Honesty. It's easy 2 criticize when your an educated privileged swiss b#tch, living in an ideal fairytale land. I have worked with children inna the ghetto from Africa to D.C., life is not easy. Fiya Bun Most white people who no fi have a clue bout the real deal of hustlin & strugglin. Big Up the Whol of Dem Gyal & Bwoi who know the Truth. Big Up Sizzla Kalonji!!!

its funny coz theres nothing primitive or backward about what he said...burn first of all is symbolic...to burn with words...coz when you get burnt from the stove, ya dont touch it again, do ya....so burn people with words is to tell them something that might hurt but is true...

blacks are only in jamaica coz of slavery...and white people dont want to admit that there...and white people have kept all black jamaicans poor...

burn them with words, educate them about THEIR BACKWARDNESS...ENSLAVING THE PEOPLE...Now THAT is primitive.

No defense of this, really. Sad, because he is a talented musician:

The racist performer has also urged his listeners to kill gay people.
One of his songs, Boom Boom, says:“Queers must be killed.” Another,
Pump Up, says:“Shoot queers.”

At a concert, in Chicago in April 2002, Sizzla boasted to his audience
that he personally kills homosexuals:“I kill sodomites and queers,
they bring AIDS and disease upon people…shoot and kill them”.

Sizzla (real name, Miguel Orlando Collins) has released records
inciting the murder of lesbians and gays.

His hit tune Pump Up has the line:“Shot batty bwoy, my big gun boom”.
(Shoot queers, my big gun goes boom).

Battybwoy is a derogatory Jamaican patois insult, similar to faggot,
poof and queer.

See full details and references for Sizzla’s “kill gays” lyrics and
stage comments at the end of this news release.

“Sizzla has refused to apologise for his incitements to murder white
people and to kill lesbians and gay men,” said Peter Tatchell of the
gay human rights group OutRage!.

“His ‘kill gays’ songs are still in circulation. He has not withdrawn
them. He is still profiteering from his murder music.

to be honest, you cant judge the book by the cover. Sizzla has been illustrating this message or knowledge (slavery) to every race not just black people through his music, so if you are a consience and righteous person you would have actually know y he said that. Lets be realistic about what he stated "burnt white people" he didnt mean literally burnt them with fire. Additionaly what the artiste meant was that specifically for those white people who commited those crimes to us black people, they should pay the penalty( god to decide). I personaly agree to what Kalonji stated to an extent, but currently today majority of balcks are still underclass. I say this "only God can judge", we leave everthing up to god to decide what he does for those of whom that committed negativity relating to life in general as for every race.

Your comment perfectly expresses the widespread ignorance , and laziness in not having bothered to understand Ja history and metaphorical use of language. It highlights a total lack of any attempt at understanding history and culture from any perspective other than your own...Texan ,you really have a lot to learn,but you dont cos you are funnily enough all to ready to pass judgement without understanding.....

when you generalize everybody by their skin colour you are making a clear distinction isolating them from the rest of the people. that comment is racial discrimination to say the least. look, what if someone is 75% white in jamaica and 25% black, should they be punished? what about bob marley? he was half white. would that retard sizzla tell bob marley to his face that he should be punished for what some random slaver did x amount of years ago? how does he even know that their decendents of slavers? what about white people in jamaica that came from ireland or somewhere else whose ancestors were actually more or less slaves to the british? does he want them to be punished too? what about the black people who sold other black people into slavery? go look it up it happened. he should learn from capleton, and instead of saying burn (insert group of people here), say burn corruption, burn wickedness, etc. furthermore, fvck sizzla, i will never play his tunes again. stupid ignorant racist wannabe rasta ballhead is all he is.

I love reggae music, I love the message through it and I really appreciate Sizzla's music...I went to Sizzla's concert in BArcelona in november, great ambient, fabulous music... and yet sad to realize that Mr Kalonji was friendly with black people( normal!) BUT touching with repugnance the (few) white hands that were close to the scenario.

i was looking a bt more the arguments on the internetand ended here.

I do understand why some people are angry against white people (from our large sick arrogant history ), yet I'm sad to see this kind of behaviour.

Will hate toward white (or homosexual, etc) help make the world better? let me doubt it. It will only give some argument to the stupid racists.

As for me, after a concert that I really appreciated, that left me a bitter message in the heart.

One man (george herbert) said that you have to"Be strong to be usefull". Well, from what I can see Sizzla's strong voice in the Music (let alone, religious, politics ...) community will help nurture hate between human beings. Is that being useful?

Blindness only bring fanatism. All the extremes are bad.

Peace

Well if you are really a white man and you weren't offended you must be stupid indeed. You have to listen to his lyrics and when you listen closely you hear how this hypocrite hates white people. What a disgrace and sad that this parasite has any fans.
