The trolls over at Fox News have never met a sentence too ignorant to not be uttered aloud. On Monday, aging mascot Geraldo Rivera blamed Kendrick Lamar for doing more damage to the Black community than, well, you know, institutionalized racism, police brutality or a biased justice system.

Commenting on Kendrick’s “Alright” performance at Sunday night’s BET Awards, Rivera remarked, “This is why I say that hip-hop has done more damage to young African-Americans than racism in recent years … This is exactly the wrong message.”

The message in question is K. Dot’s lyric, “We hate the po-po/Wanna kill us dead in the street fo sho.” According to Geraldo, these sort of lyrics “conflate what happened in this church in South Carolina with these tragic incidents involving excessive use of force by cops is to equate this racist killer with these cops.”

“It is so wrong, so counterproductive. It gives exactly the wrong message. It doesn’t recognize that a city like Baltimore, which is just 7 percent the size of New York, has just as many murders as New York. We gotta wake up at a certain point and understand what’s going on,” he continued.

Why this Fox News donkey feels he’s in a position to comment on the African-American community’s plight is baffling, even more so because he thinks Kendrick Lamar is somehow to blame for officers murdering unarmed Black men in cold blood only to be paraded through a kangaroo court where their actions are celebrated.

Do you all think Geraldo is right? Is Kendrick Lamar and rap lyrics with social commentary damaging the Black community? Is rap music to blame for a racist terrorist shooting up a Black church and killing nine people?
