Not pertaining to hip-hop-- directly. But definitely related. And definitely worth speaking on.
The "New York Post" is known for racism, bias, poking fun at murder, and downsizing Democratic news as much as possible-- unless they know it will make them a quick buck.
Take Obama's election, for example. When "The
Hoax Post" saw how much money the "NY Daily News" was raking in on Obama's November 4th victory, they tried to follow suit by inserting a "36 page color pull-out of Obama & Election Night." But it took about two days for them to catch on. Other than that, the bosses at the tremulous tabloid are a bunch of racists.
But what else is new? That picture doesn't shock me. In fact, I expected it. Damn! What took you n*ggas so long?! I thought the French would take back the Statue of Liberty before "The Post" made a monkey out of Obama. This was LONG overdue.
There is really only one thing that irritates me about this whole fiasco. And it's not cartoonist Sean Delonas. It's not the cartoon itself. It's not even "The Post."
Pimp Al Sharpton aka O.G Katt Williams aka Press'n'Perm is back yet again. This time, he's thrusting his processed hairline into the forefront to lead a(nother) "protest" against "The Post" ... who many non-white New Yorkers already know as racist anyways. How many people are going to take time out of our schedules in these trying times to protest some stupid newspaper-- standing next to an idiot like Sharpton?
My problem with this moron is that his entire career has been based on every race-based incident in all of New York City, year after year. The moment the camera flashes die out and the interview opportunities take a back seat, Sharpton is once again on the off-season. He doesn't give a damn about black people. He only cares about himself and trying to get his name in history books next to Martin Luther King, Jr.
To sum it up, he's an opportunist. Nothing more. I wish these blinded idiots would stop spreading the word for his "protests" and other sh*t he organizes.
To reiterate popular belief, it's a lot of these coon rappers who keep illustrating the ignorant correlation between blacks and monkeys. If a beer bellied hillbilly who has never seen anything other than trailor trash turns on BET or MTV, then my guess is the image of Lil Jon flashing his teeth in the camera like a rabid horse is what stays with these people who have never seen blacks in any other light. Ignorant? Yes. But ignorance is bliss. They don't know anything else. If they've only seen "BET Uncut," "Rap City," and other sh*t where blacks degrade/coon/buffoon themselves, then what do you expect?
In the meantime, I'll make a note to not buy another "Post" ever again.
Come to think of it, I should have probably done this already.
