The black hip hoppers of the world have spoken. They do not want white people buying, supporting or singing any of the music that contains the word "idiot slave" because they believe it helps their community move forward while remaining a stereotype.
The illusion that the street name for "idiot slave" is synonymous with a culture and its strength is ludicrously grandiose. You rarely complain when the white community says it while it helps you grind one out. Why should you expect white people to stop saying the word if you can't? Please tell your non-black fans not to buy your music, it's not appreciated and you don't need the money because you do it for the art.
You can't even stand up to your own brothers for calling your mothers, sisters and daughters hos and bitches or defending them from the "me too" movement, why should we expect a humane response for global respect. We are the ones that suffer the consequences and unless you have room in your jet for the entire community to fly out when it gets frantic, I suggest you keep the word to yourself. I refuse to be an "idiot slave."
I’m allowed to use the "n" word. I don’t because the connotation is ugly. We need to learn our history and respect it. The people who suffered are not here and the instigators long died out. I dislike the word because its archaic and incapacitating. If you are constantly haunted by a word, get rid of it. It hasn’t changed anyone's life for the better and its impolite to be holding people who don't understand hostage for a word that picks its own master. That is not a stand for equality its a fight for exclusivity. Half the advantage of buying and listening to music is repeating the words. Bieber wasn't held accountable but Bill Maher was when they each said it. The experience of buying and listening to music is so people can sing along. If you don't want other people to sing it don't write it in (artists work best under restrictions.) Our ancestors would not appreciate its use and you might be able to suppress the chokehold white America has over your community because you showed them your kryptonite. Everyone will be accountable and Tarantino will have an unfinished script for his next film. 21-May-2018
I don't enjoy meeting notables. The rules that I employ is don't fuss, treat them with respect and remind myself they are of the same flesh.
I met him accidentally. I was supposed to accomplish my task in his home office and leave. I was told he wasn't going to be there but he was. I extended a hello and he reciprocated it. I hid in my task working as efficiently and invisible as I could make myself. He pulled me out of hiding by inquiring about me which woke me from my nervous trance. I answered and he shared a nicety with me which made me smile. He shared of himself to ease me.
I ask you sir, that you bring some of that thought to the other half of America that is confused by you... so I can store it as a good memory. 22-Feb-2018
We all like to pretend that every President we vote in to the White House represents all of America. The divide commences as soon as the party label is slapped on. We get to be America's favorite for a duration, they get to be favorite for another. As we await our turn, I have to ponder, when do we get a government that represents the whole all of the time? 20-Feb-2018
