A Detroit youth music festival is offering different ticket prices for different races, leading one rapper to withdraw from the event.
AfroFuture Fest tickets for "persons of color" cost half as much as tickets for "non-persons of color," according to the event page.
Early bird tickets for white attendees run at $20, while early bird tickets for non-white attendees cost $10. After July 17, tickets for white people will cost $40, while tickets for non-white people will cost $20.
