MICHIGAN (CelebrityAccess) Tiny Jag, a biracial rapper, backed out of the AfroFuture Fest in Michigan because it was learned that white people would be charged twice the attendance of people of color.

“I was immediately enraged just because I am biracial,” Graham told the Detroit Metro Times. “I have family members that would have, under those circumstances, been subjected to something that I would not ever want them to be in … especially not because of anything that I have going on.”

The early bird “people of color” tickets cost $10 while the “non-POC” tickets cost $20. The rapper said she learned of the deal when a white friend sent her a screenshot of an Instagram advertisement.

She called the move “non-progressive” and “Not solution-focused.”

“It seems almost like it has spite, and unfortunately with spite comes hate, and that’s just not obviously going to be a good direction for us to go if we’re looking for positive change,” she told the news outlet.
