Did Rap Music Cause the Super Racist SAE Chant?
Inquiring minds demand answers.
We should all feel dumber for having watched that Morning Joe segment.
“The kids that are buying hip hop or gangster rap…it’s a white audience, and they hear this over and over again,” host Joe Scarborough said. “So do they hear this at home? Well, chances are good, no, they heard a lot of this from guys like [rapper Waka Flocka Flame] who are now acting shocked.”
This is an instance of well-paid individuals on cable news being obnoxiously dense. It’s not worth much of our time, but at least it inspired an amusing hashtag: #RapAlbumsThatCausedSlavery.
