Does every white person wish they rapped? I guess the better question is: who that exists doesn’t want to rap? And with the success of Eminem and Asher Roth I guess a lot more white people are getting into it. There are some things that I’d like to draw some attention to that seem so stupid to me and I wish you’d come alongside me and think the same thing. There’s an extreme hypocrisy in the lyrics that you hear and the actions of those rappers that give the lyrics. I know I’m not saying anything new and you already know this so the question is why accept it?
My friend Leslie and I were chatting and she told me that she doesn’t mind that Jay-Z calls his girl a bitch. When I asked her if she would want me to call her a bitch she said she wouldn’t mind. And then I asked her if she had a boyfriend who introduced her to people as his bitch if she would be okay with that and she said no. “Hi I’m John and this is my bitch.” The question is then, why does Beyonce stand for this type of behavior. Is it that I don’t understand the culture? Hardly, I understand hip-hop culture as much as I understand college culture, which is a lot. And yet there is this seemingly uncharacteristic shrug of the shoulders when I ask girls in particular why they are okay with this type of behavior. They dance sexy on the floor to songs that have lyrics like this:
“The ladies love us
when we pour shots
they need an excuse
to suck our cocks”
Is there something wrong with this? Like ladies are so sex hungry that all they want to do is suck cock. Not to mention how childish this group’s name is: LMFAO. I mean 12 and 13 year-old girls made acronyms popular in texting. This group is a joke and this song is not only degrading but just a bad song. I like dancing and this song sucks cock…Berry Gordy should be ashamed.
Calling a girl or woman a bitch is derogatory and wrong. You shouldn’t do it. Women have value and you devalue them when you refer to them as bitches. People have names for a reason and if you’re not interested in calling a girl by her name, I pray you never find a wife until you become a man. Try to put yourself in the shoes of a father and ask yourself if you want a boy treating your daughter the way you are treating women you see in the club and around town.
Things to think about:
-“In February 2010, LMFAO member Sky Blu was reportedly involved in an airplane altercation with politician Mitt Romney during the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. The rapper claimed that, despite earlier press coverage suggesting otherwise, Romney attacked first, putting a "vulcan grip" on him. The claims were mentioned in a TMZ video (which shows Sky Blu being escorted off the aircraft by authorities). Sky Blu was not arrested, however.” Source Wikipedia
