Eagles’ use of filthy song disturbing

While I’m not a Philadelphia Eagles fan, I congratulate them on a great Super Bowl win [“Eagles soar!” News, Feb. 5]. I was also interested in watching the parade in Philadelphia when the team returned home.

Most interesting of all was the team’s choice of a song played both while walking off the field after the game and at the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It was Philly native Meek Mill’s rap song “Dreams and Nightmares.”

I think most people would be appalled to hear or read the song’s lyrics. They’re full of obscene language, discriminatory slang and violent references. The double standard in vogue today is really irritating.
