Philadelphia store owners know they cannot stop local religious protestors from convening and shouting, but they are trying to drown them out.

Philadelphia store owners know they cannot stop local religious protestors from convening and shouting, but they are trying to drown them out.

The merchants of the Shops at Liberty Place have hired a DJ to come and play while the Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge is assembled there.

They say that the Black Israelite organization’s extreme views and in-your-face approach are upsetting the customers.

Legal attempts to rid the area of the protestors had failed, as the group was found to be within their First Amendment rights.

To keep patrons free from harassment, the shopping center decided that the chants had to be silenced in some way.

That’s where the two men known as DJ Liberty Place come in.

Said one of the record spinners, "They say white people are evil, women are evil, Jesus is evil. Anything that is not their beliefs is evil. I just hope by playing music that is fun and upbeat, we are uplifting people's spirits even though other more negative things are being shouted at them.”
So, every Friday, they set up and play what the shopping crowds want to hear. Among their top requests is the Ray Charles song ‘Hit the Road, Jack”.
