Rush Limbaugh: If Kanye West Sung Racist Chant, It’d Be A Hit!

Published

Rush Limbaugh recently raised this argument: If Kanye West rapped the racist chant sung by the University of Oklahoma’s SAE fraternity, the song would be a hit.

The host raised the debate during his radio show on Wednesday while talking with MSNBC hosts, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough about the horrific chant that got the organization shut down and two students expelled. “If this had been a song by Kim Kardashian’s husband and they had sung this song at the Grammys … it’d be a hit,”Rush said. “But I’m telling you this stuff gets awards and the people who sing it are portrayed as American royalty in terms of celebrity. You can’t deny that.”

The chant’s lyrics were, “There will never be a ni**** SAE. You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me. There will never be a ni**** SAE.” 

In response, Brzezinski and Scarborough both suggested that rap music was to blame for the horribly offensive chant. The hosts used Waka Flocka Flame as an example, claiming that the rapper, who cancelled his appearance at the University because of the race scandal, has “garbage” songs that are “full of N-words.” “If you look at every single song, I guess you call these, that he’s written, it’s a bunch of garbage,” Brzezinski said. “It’s full of N-words, it’s full of F-words. It’s wrong. And he shouldn’t be disgusted with them, he should be disgusted with himself.”

Scarborough added, “The kids that are buying hip-hop or gangster rap, it’s a white audience, and they hear this over and over again. So do they hear this at home? Well, chances are good, no, they heard a lot of this from guys like this who are now acting shocked.”

The hosts opinions outraged social media users and even sparked the hashtag, ##RapAlbumsThatCausedSlavery.

During another appearance on MSNBC, Brzezinski backtracked and clarified his off-putting comments.”The students in the video are responsible for their behavior. And as we said on our show this morning, they did it, and it’s beyond appalling. In no way is anybody else to blame for what they did on that bus. They are responsible and they made that choice.”

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

on

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

Storm Reid – Getty Images

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
