We must work together to end Juggalo discrimination

Juggalos are people, too. Real people with real feelings. Your sister could be one. Your best friend from high school could be one. Somebody close to you could be a tortured closet Juggalo, hiding love for the Insane Clown Posse deep down inside, stifling his or her true feelings, living a lie to avoid the brutal reality of Juggalo discrimination.

They're not a gang. They're a family. Like any family, the Juggalos deserve to love in peace.

Thankfully, there's an organization Juggalos can turn to for help if they've been treated unfairly by whack fools who don't understand the meaning behind the dark carnival. It's called Juggalos Fight Back. It's primary purpose is to resist efforts on the part of law enforcement agencies to categorize Juggalos as members of a criminal organization. A blurb from the groups web site explains:

As many of you may have heard, the federal government has indicated in official public reports that Psychopathic Records recording artists the Insane Clown Posse’s fan base, the Juggalos, is a criminal gang emerging throughout the United States. On behalf of the Juggalos, the Insane Clown Posse and Psychopathic Records have launched a lawsuit against the FBI who have violated the rights of Juggalos on the mistaken belief that they are “gang members”.

The site is also a place for oppressed devotees of the hatchet man to share thier stories of cultural abuse, bullying and outright discrimination.  In the interest of increasing Juggalo awareness, the good people at Juggalos Fight Back developed a pamphlet that Juggalos can hand out. The title of the pamphlet is "We're not a gang, we're a family".

We must work together to end Juggalo discrimination. Our society has made so much progress when it comes to acceptance of people of varying races, sexes creeds and colors, yet the Juggalos remain outcasts and we tell ourselves that it's OK. They're humans, too - every bit of deserving of inclusion in the American Dream as you or I.

Psychopathic Pamphlet
