Lauryn Hill Responds to Accusations that “Neurotic Society” Lyrics are Homophobic

A couple of weeks ago, writer Monica Miller called out Lauryn Hill for what she felt were homophobic lyrics in Hill’s latest song, “Neurotic Society.”

In a piece that appeared on BET.com, writer Monica Miller claimed that Hill’s use of terms like “girl men” and “drag queens” perpetuated injustice.

Well, Hill has responded to those claims in her latest post on Tumblr:

FAMU’s Marching Band Suspended for Another Year

In wake of the latest hazing incident that resulted in the November 2011 death of drum major, Robert Champion, Florida A&M University’s famed Marching 100 band has been suspended for another year.

Last week, the former director of the band, Dr. Julian Wright, resigned.

From the Huffington Post:

“At a school where people attend football games just for the Marching 100 halftime show, where students enroll just for a shot at playing on the field, such a move is like saying the Alabama Crimson Tide won’t play football for a year. The full impact on enrollment and the school community can’t immediately be measured, but students and alumni said it’s a move they support to make sure hazing is rooted out.
