is a press release from LaFace Records, in regards to the Rosa
Parks lawsuit that was thrown out of court: "We are pleased
that our freedom of speech was not compromised, but are still
saddened that Ms. Parks’ lawyers felt the need to take this to
court. Our intentions were never to defame her name, as we respect
Ms. Parks and all that she has done for our people and this country.
We plan on putting this behind us and to continue making hit music
for people of all races and ages to listen to."
