Another Hip-Hop artist falls victim to Cultural Conditioning
In this country we have been culturally conditioned to underestimate, undervalue and marginalize black people; and far too often black people do it to themselves……
While most of the hip-hop artist sported tailored made suits which actually looked classy, Nas and his wife Kelis decided to wear this:
And then CNN interviewed this idiot!! Did you hear his explanation on why is doing this? He make no sense. Black people need to protest this. Anyone who was outraged over the Don Imus comments, should be even more offended by this.
So I wonder what it says on the back of Nas’s shirt; maybe Coon? Sambo? Stepin Fetchit?
Wow what a great way to start out the first week of Black History Month. What a great way to honor the black artist who showed up at the Grammys like Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner other black artist who had to fight during a time where they were considered less then human because of the color of their skin.
I use to have so much respect for Nas, but that has changed. I don’t care what kind of lyrical content Nas is going to have on his new CD, I will not buy it. Nas claims that his new CD will have serious knowledge for all to experience. But naming your CD this racially offensive word takes away from whatever content you are going to have on your CD.
Black folk are the only group of people who assist in keeping alive a racially offensive word that is rooted in hate towards their ancestors.
You call a gay person a faggot; it’s hate speech (and it is)
You call a Jewish person a kike; it’s Anti-Semitic (and it is)
You call a black person a nigger; it’s freedom of speech??????
WAKE UP BLACK PEOPLE!!!
Here is a blog post that speaks truth to power about this issue.
Here is a portion of an MTV article which talked about the cool and not so cool moments of the Grammys. Guess what made the cool list…
Cool: Seal wearing YSL was OK, Rihanna in Zac Posen was great, but Nas wearing a promo T-shirt for his controversially titled upcoming album, Nigger, on the red carpet was next-level cool. And his wife, Kelis, wearing a matching jacket was even cooler.
So MTV thought Nas and Kelis’s racilly offensive outfits were “cool.” This is why I don’t watch MTV
But this is what really pissed me off; here is a picture of Nas and Kelis at the after party
Let me get this straight. While on the red carpet with TV stations broadcasting their images across the country, Nas and Kelis want to be niggers, but at the Sony/BMG Grammy after party, they flip the scrip. Why? They should let all the music executives and big wigs at the industry parties know how ignorant they are. They knew if they wore those shirts at the after parties, they wouldn’t be able to look at all of the black artists who paved the way for their asses and give them a legitimate answer as to why they were wearing those outfits.
