Music With Bad Associations

If, during your bored meanderings on YouTube, you come across a song you like, but after searching a bit further, find out that the band (and some of their other songs) support some pretty nasty shit (white supremacy)...

Is it still ok to add that one song you liked (which has no racist lyrics) to your playlists? In general, is it okay to like the non-racist songs of a racist band? Where do you draw the line? Can you buy any of their stuff? Go to their concerts? Mention to your friends that you like them, so long as you add "but not their racist stuff, 'cause that's obviously bullshit."

Opinions, please.
