I hate this generation, so much.
We value clout over being real and genuine. Yesterday I wrote about Drake being a shady guy. He’s a faker and a millennial that stands by the phrase “fake it till you make it” and the mans faked it to the top. I always knew he was more plastic than authentic. What pisses me off about the manz is the fact that he used black face during a photo shoot. I know y’all are gonna come with the excuses “he was young” “he was an actor” …shut the hell up.
As a black man in North America we experience racism on both sides of the border, one is more overt and one is more covert. For a black man (yes, mixed race is black) in Canada to present yourself in the most racist symbol in American history is offensive and really stupid. Black face represents the The Coon Caricature which was developed during American Slavery. A coon represented black stereotypes: non-account niggers, unreliable, crazy, lazy, subhuman creatures, eating watermelon, stealing chicken, shooting crap and butchering the English language. Drake purposefully did this without explanation and without thinking it through, he chose to show this and he’s pathetic for it. BUT Lil Tay is worse.
Lil Tay is part of this trend of non-black hip hop acts who pretend to be the most ignorant part of black Americans, The WoahVicky, Bhad Baby and Tekashi 69s they are Coons that present themselves as black while benefiting from their whiteness or in this cause their Asian ancestoryy. Go on Instagram right now and search up Lil Tay. After loosing brain cells, time and patience you’ll realize she’s acting, being directed by someone. That someone is her brother and her mother. In this video Tay is being fed lines for a future IG video, literally being told to “be more ignorant”. This child is 9 years old. Do y’all understand the danger in this? Do y’all understand how popular this girl is? Do y’all understand that her popularity in this fucked up generation validates people’s view of blacks?
It’s sad and it needs to stop. We can’t let history repeat itself, we can’t support her when she starts rapping (because that is her end goal, become a rapper and make money). We can’t let her be a representation of black people and be in hip hop culture, dummies like her Brother and Mom need to be put in jail for child abuse. Dummies like Drake need to Take Care of their kids (pun intended) instead of feeding us lies about their “artistic expression”. You can be artistic without being an idiot.
We the people deserve better than that.
