Zod

Jay-Z vs Harry Belafonte

29 posts in this topic

Firstly, this part in bold

 

 

 this is going to sound arrogant, but my presence is charity

 

 

Is very true.  I suppose it could be argued that Jay Z has a right to be arrogant... so I guess he's just doing his thing...

 

 

 

...and Zod is right, if you must say 

 

 

I’m not saying that in a racial way

 

 

Then, yeah... you are.

 

 

 

What's funny to me is the posters on here that would be calling racism had a white entertainer said something like this are saying, "lol u mad" here...

 

lol indeed.

Hell, would it kill people to quote some Neil Degrasse Tyson every now and again?

 

“One of the biggest problems with the world today is that we have large groups of people who will accept whatever they hear on the grapevine, just because it suits their worldview—not because it is actually true or because they have evidence to support it. The really striking thing is that it would not take much effort to establish validity in most of these cases… but people prefer reassurance to research.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson

 

“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Whoa, you just sent the wrong message all around. You just bigged up the white guy against me in the white media.’ I’m not saying that in a racial way.

 

Now, how can that not be taken in a racist way? Cuz he didn't say cracker? How can he not say that in a racial way, when he just pointed out a specific skin color?

Figures that the mentioning of the word "white" is the only thing some tend to notice, while the rest of the content gets ignored. The article outside this petty personal squabble is actually a good read, and makes quality points.

Yep, that's what did it... he mentioned "white"... puuuhlease.

 

I couldn't care less...   but don't act like it was a "racial" statement, are you saying it wasn't?

 

 

The article does make some good points about something other than what Jay Z or HB said... I wonder if Jay Z is listening?

I didn't create this thread. Zod did, and what was the first thing he made it about? Yeah, you guessed it. Then we have characters like tbterror and YML coming in and immediately following in his footsteps. How unexpected.

it's actually hilarious this Belafonte guy would bring up Springsteen considering Jay-Z and Springsteen have very, very much in common musically, if you really think about it.

Zod nor anyone else can control what others say or think...  if they say something out of line, I'm sure he'll ban them.

 

...and you didn't answer my question.

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
