Twitter Went Mad With #RapAlbumsThatCausedSlavery And It Was Glorious

Soooo a couple of days ago there was this little segment on MSNBC that caused outrage and sparked this freaking incredible hashtag!

After this video of an Oklahoma Fraternity chanting racist comments went viral, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol took part in the panel discussion on the trashy MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and blamed the “cesspool” of popular culture and along with the rest of the panelists, made excuses for the drunk teenagers chanting racial slurs.

The biggest point they went ahead and mentioned was the fact that rappers use “the n-word” in their songs, so it’s perfectly fine for these teenagers (should probably mention they were white teens) to go ahead and chant away – which is a steaming hot pile of bullshit. That word was crafted by white slave-owners, but black people started reclaiming the word – it just really didn’t work because it’s still offensive as hell to pretty much every black person I’ve ever met.

You can’t turn around and say that just because Wacka Flocka Flame uses it in his lyrics, then that gives everyone the damn right to chant it out loud. Get the hell out, you little cretin.

Racism is racism, stop making pathetic excuses and go to your room and think about what you just said.

Cue “Black Twitter” to come in and compile this ABSOLUTE GEM of a hashtag, #RapAlbumsThatCausedSlavery. I got a few good chuckles out of these Tweets, and this is just an amazing example of the power of social media (and how easy it is to mock MSNBC, I mean pls for the love of God what is wrong with these damn panelists?!)
