From 2016, Simon’s record seems like a model of engagement, though he’s also been accused of cultural appropriation.

One complaint in North Carolina has been that Springsteen’s boycott is punishing his own fans, who—according to this argument—are likely to oppose HB2 in the first place. As Christie’s fandom shows, there are plenty of conservatives who love Springsteen’s brand of everyman heartland rock.

(For a 2004 concert in Cleveland supporting John Kerry’s presidential run, a chunk of Bush-backing Boss buffs bought tickets anyway and simply held up signs or yelled for Springsteen to lay off the politics and play the hits.) In any case, boycotts like this are more symbolic than punitive in purpose.

Springsteen sideman Steven Van Zandt, who organized the anti-Apartheid project the same year, says that he was shown an assassination list compiled by the radical group AZAPO that had Simon “at the top of it.” Simon’s defense was simply that his music was not political.

Ultimately, several high-profile South African musicians, including Hugh Masakela and Miriam Makeba, defended Simon, mostly getting him off the hook.

Even that effort was not without controversy at the time, though, and it illustrates the tension between the impulse to boycott and to engage.

In 1985, Paul Simon flew to South Africa to record , the hit album that featured Ladysmith Black Mambazo and other South African musicians.

The Greensboro Coliseum estimated it would lose 0,000, and people who would have been working that night didn’t make any money from it.

The city’s mayor said she wasn’t sure how large the economic ripple effects might be.

Swing bands began to integrate slowly after 1935, when white clarinetist Benny Goodman created a trio with black pianist Teddy Wilson and white drummer Gene Krupa.
