“everybody wants to be a pineapple,
but nobody wants to be a pineapple.” – paul mooney, the chappelle show

if you visited the ( x fox-tionary ),
you know a “pineapple” means the “n” word round dese parts.
anyway…
can i say this without being rude?
okay i’m going to try my hardest.
*ahem*…

i love when the snow animals experience the “black” struggle

its all cute when they twerking flapjacks and rapping off beat…
snow animals tend to live in a bubble.
it might be ignorance or simply just being naive,
but when they get a dose of what it’s like to be “us”,
i’m always amused at their response.

  1. Dramatic af, I love him though, he sings with so much soul. He was probably in his feelings more than his friend was. It’s always nice when people get a chance to see this still happens out there

    1. It really is. Especially when people want to swear up and down that racism is dead, here and in the UK. But yet everyday someone is told “go back to Africa” and “your people are poor because they are lazy.” Systemic and deep-seeded.

  2. I like how explains that he has no idea what it feels like to be treated differently because of his race

    P.S. Something tells me your hunch will come to fruition 😜

  3. I don’t mind what he said *Kanye shrug*. Besides, I’d rather take him and make him an honorary black person if it means we can give Stacy Dash away…that is the real problem.

  4. At least he cares…no? It’s always nice when we’re not the only ones talking about it. It helps when their people hear it from THEIR people, because when it’s from “us” it’s *eye-roll* and *tooth suck* and “pulling the black card” etc. They won’t listen to us anymore, so I’m okay with this. the more of them that are aware of the real deal, the better, so they can stop with their ridiculous arguments about racism not existing etc. I will not even have that conversation with a white person, it’s just too stupid lol.

    1. I read some of the tweets replying to Sam tweets.Many people express more empathy and compassion for Sam than the friend who was the target of the slurs.I saw Sam in concert in 2014,at the show I attended more than half of his band was Black (including the backup singers).I find it hard to believe that at least one of them hasn’t experienced racism and hasn’t discussed the incident while they spent months and months on the road.My issue with some White people is ,they don’t or won’t believe what Black people have been saying UNLESS they see it with their own eyes.So when we talk about racial profiling,being followed around in stores,being harassed,beaten,shot by cops it falls on deaf ears unless they witness it or there is a video documenting it.Maybe Sam has never witnessed racism but I doubt seriously he has never heard that it occurs.So why do you have to witness it, to be outraged?

      1. I agree, I’m not saying it’s right, but for whatever reason it’s the only way they will ever understand. I guess it’s just not convenient for them to believe us, because THEY have to change (boo hoo). It’s like the saying: “seeing is believing” but for them it’s more “experiencing is believing”. They can’t imagine how it would make them feel if these things happened to them, at least his eyes are opened.

        To answer your question, maybe he only cares because it was his close friend? When the person is closer to your heart, you are more sensitive to their experiences and feelings. Again, not saying it’s right, but it may explain why it’s suddenly a concern for him. I’m sure he knew racism existed, but for many white people, it’s more of a historic concept, than an actual every day experience. It takes them awhile sometimes. lol

  5. Do we men need to be raped to know that women are raped and that rape is bad?

    Did we need to be molested as children to know molestation happens and that it’s bad?

    The idea that white people need to witness racism firsthand for them to realize it still exists is just… It’s more than naivety and ignorance. Some of them act as if racism stopped as soon as the emancipation proclamation was signed.

    And don’t forget, racism can be subtle. It’s not always in your face hate. I can’t tell you how many racist white men and women I’ve come across who love rap music. Lest we forget the college frat who sang about lynching niggers on there way to a game had Waka Flaka set to perform for them that following weekend. How much you wanna bet they would’ve had tons of facebook pictures posing with Waka Flaka all the while singing behind closed doors about never allowing a nigger to join their frat.

    Boy do I have some stories. That’s why my comment to that past entry(when I called you Fredrick Douglas) was so hostile Jamari. Something about it stirred up feelings of what my aunt had to go through at her job. I don’t know why I didn’t just tell you that tho. Same goes for the other day. Discussions centered around racism really get to me having grown up in a red state that’s majority white and Republican.

  6. How do we know the friend is black?? Just asking.. The U.K has a huge population of South Asians there and the anti-Islam propaganda that is going on in the Western countries is causing friction for many Indians, Pakistani etc. people who live around these regions. Just saying. But I’d guess the friend was probably black though.

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
