A US breakfast-television-host-cum-Sherlock-Holmes appears to have finally worked out the real racists in a week when a bunch of white fraternity students repeatedly chanted the n-word and sang a song about lynching. Yes, you guessed it, black rappers.
There's this rapper - Waka Flocka Flame - who has performed for these kids in the past on the campus...
And I'm like look at his lyrics and... if you look at every single song, I guess you call it, it's a bunch of garbage, full of n-words, full of f-bombs, it's wrong. He shouldn't be disgusted with them, he should be disgusted with himself. That's all I have to say.
Her co-host Joe Scarborough, sitting amongst the all-white panel, then piped in with some wondrous insight of his own.
And by the way, as anybody that watches Empire [a TV show about hip hop] knows, 70 per cent of the audience is white.
The kids that are buying this hip hop, or gangsta rap... It’s a white audience, and they hear this over and over again. 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.
