White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

Photograph: Jay-Z and Beyonce with Doug Morris, former CEO of Universal Music Group which owns Jay-Z’s Roc-a-fella records, Island Def Jam Records (formerly Russell Simons’ Def Jam) and current CEO of Sony Entertainment which owns Columbia records where Beyonce is signed. Doug Morris’ net worth nearly doubles that of Jay-Z. So who are the real owners of hip-hop?



"Despite the perception that Black entrepreneurs like P. Diddy, Russell Simmons, Jay-Z, Cash Money [or Young Money] are moguls, they are, in actuality, the children of their respective parent companies. P. Diddy’s Bad Boy Records is owned by Warner Music Group; Suge Knight’s Death Row by Interscope is owned by Universal Music Group; Def Jam is also owned by Universal… What’s worse is that, despite popular perception, there are no Blacks -none -in top executive positions of the parent companies. What the parent companies, as well as the Black moguls, would like us to believe is that “the R.O.C. is runnin’ this rap shit.” This why Jay-Z is touted as the ‘C.E.O of Hip-Hop.’ “- M. K. Asante, It’s Bigger Than Hip-Hop: The Post Hip-Hop Generation, p. 111-112








I guess this explains the one dimensionality of over-ground/radio hip hop. Misogynistic lyrics from gun and bling crazed artists are what the industry wants to perpetuate. In other words shake that a** yo and keep it going… - G.

This is not my photo.
But I would like opinions- Postmortem or not?
I said it wasn’t and got “corrected” by people who said it was.
It looks to me like a stork delivering a baby, but I was told that it’s a heron taking a dead baby to the afterlife.
To get super nit-picky, I rarely, if ever, see postmortem babies with their arms posed UP like that.

It is not a postmortem. They never staged them like this. And storks are associated with birth, not death.

Hmm, I can see the image of a baby in the stork’s body. Perhaps a post-mortem of twins, one being delivered and the other taken away. My conjecture and uneducated guess, I’m by no mrans a post-mortem expert.
