The RAP Act would limit prosecutors from using someone’s lyrics against them in court, a tactic that helped put Young Thug, Gunna, and hundreds of other defendants behind bars.

you’ll be surprised (or, perhaps, very unsurprised) to learn that yes, you can be imprisoned based off of lyrics, and that the use of lyrics to imprison people is almost exclusively something that happens to rappers. there’s an effort to change this as mentioned by the article which is working its way through Congress right now, but i’m not sure how likely it is to pass.

I sense some racism here.
