    "Minstrel Show" indeed.......It's a shame how nobody expects anything great to come for us anymore.......So much so, that they reward us for our bafoonery.

    Me and my mother and sisters had this same discussion!
    Yes indeed it was a slap in the face and an insult to us!
    My mother told me I was militant and a racist!
    She said it was the first time blacks performed on the oscars
    The my sistah started singing the lyrics
    Ya know it's hard out here for a pimp
    I don't know the rest of the lyrics but I asked my mother to listen to the lyrics and look at them performing on stage like it's the black national anthem!I said you don't see anything wrong with!

    I just posted on another thread, of how they couldn't find a better facet of Hip-Hop, and of Blackness to represent us?

    I know more than a Dozen Hip-Hop affiliated groups that have done movie scores over the past year.....Material that is intelligent, and heart-felt.

    How do they justify this foolishness? It's like White people want to constantly remind us of how foolish they view us as being.

    Such a shame.......And then we wonder why no one takes us seriously.......Not even ourselves. :uhoh:

    The Glorification of the pimp has been re-emurging for years. The question is who are the real pimps and the real hoes...?


    Peace.........

    This Oscar Nomination showed us this. We are still the proverbial "***" for the White man, as he continues to "pimp" us, our image, our "talent" (or in this case, the lack thereof), and our ignorance.

    Still makes you wonder, what next? The acceptance of rappers and rap songs that are as polar opposite to white main stream America as it gets.. We're being set up for something more diabolically mind.


    Peace....

    I wouldn't say talentless. Its hard for people outside the region to appreciate their product, but Juicy and DJ Paul have produced some extremely dope tracks over the years.

    True indeed. How is it that our people are never prepared for the "Okey-Doke", when the white man hits us? :bam:
