    Black America has a genius for creating cultural forms, but quickly loses control of its own inventions.
    African American Hip Hop enthusiasts have failed to resist “the infestation of fraudulent white
    liberals who have co-opted large areas of Hip Hop in the same way white developers ethically
    cleanse/gentrify communities of color.”

    In 1963, in a speech entitled “God’s Judgment of White America,” Malcolm X stated: “The white
    liberal differs from the white conservative only in one way: the liberal is more deceitful than the
    conservative. The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative. Both want power, but the white
    liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Negro’s friend and benefactor; and by
    winning the friendship, allegiance, and support of the Negro, the white liberal is able to use the Negro
    as a pawn or tool in this political “football game” that is constantly raging between the white liberals
    and white conservatives.”

    White liberal Hip Hop ‘fans’ are akin to white liberals/Democrats who will attend an annual tributes
    to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. simply to go home with a smile and no desire to help fight the myriad
    injustices MLK fought (e.g., military industrial complex, institutional racism, capitalism,
    imperialism). Those are not burdens or concerns of theirs; after all the Democrats (like the
    Republicans) are ultimately supporters of these injustices. They are not fighting imperialism; they
    support it with the money they provide to finance these wars. They are hypocrites, through and
    through. And the sooner communities of color realize this, the better.

    Our music is a powerful tool. A tool that can be used to indeed destroy minds if used carelessly thus we get some of the issues we have now. The glorifying of our criminal elements.
