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.”
Jennifer Hudson Is In Fear For Her Life, Gets Order Of Protection Against Ex-Fiancé David Otunga
Jennifer Hudson has been granted a protective order against her former fiancé, David Otunga.
Apparently, after 10 years together, Jennifer and David broke-up for several months ago. However, things turned extremely sour while the pair were trying to work out a custody situation for their 8-year-old son, David Jr. According to the protection order, Jennifer claims the former wrestler exhibited “aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward me.” She also says, “I am now living in fear of further action David might take.”
After receiving the order of protection on Thursday, cops showed up to Hudson’s home, that she shared with David, and escorted him out.
Otunga’s attorney vehemently denies any wrongdoing on David’s behalf and claims that Jennifer is using this protection order as a ploy to get the courts to give her primary physical custody of David Jr.
