I was checking Twitter just now, and I see there's a heated debate going on about whether or not Rick Ross is a racist. Really?
In case you haven't checked World Star yet, Rawse has got a video out where he's bragging about Deeper Than Rap being the number one album in the country, and G-Unit has been dropped from Interscope, and then he calls Eminem a honky. I guess someone from G-Unit was complaining about Rawse calling Fiddy Cent a monkey, a la Muhammad Ali taunting Joe Frazier (if you haven't already, you might want to check that HBO documentary about the Thrilla in Manila), and Rawse wanted to show he's an equal opportunity offender.
I saw the video a couple of hours ago (I know, mad early!) and actually did a post on it for XXL, but the race angle hadn't occurred to me. White people must be on edge, because of Asher Roth. I know cracka-ass crackas have been some of Roth's biggest detractors, but the hate has gotten a bit intense, given that he's hardly done anything that racist. He's probably a nice guy. I'd feel bad for him, if he wasn't balls deep in some smokin' hot sorority broad right now.
Which brings me to my point: Who gives a shit if Rawse called Eminem a honky? Haven't these people seen the first season of the Real World? Black people can't be racist.
If he keeps up like this, he'll never get back on Nah Right!
And I quote:
"You guys are always going off about how much money you have. Do you realize what's going on in this world right now?' All these black rappers? African rappers? Talking about how much money they have. Do you realize what's going on in Africa right now? It's just like, you guys are disgusting. Talking about billions and billions of dollars you have. And spending it frivolously, when you know, the Motherland is suffering beyond belief right now."
So far, hundreds of people in Mexico have died from swine Mexican flu, but the only person to die from it here in the US is a Mexican baby. Could it be that Mexican flu is a biological weapon designed to target Mexicans? That's what Alex Jones is claiming.
He says the government has been coming up with biological weapons based on race. My mid '90s heads might recall that HBO movie about how the military (as opposed to some Saigon whore) gave black soldiers syphilis, for whatever reason. Some Americans might end up dying from Mexican flu, but remember: you can die from the flu anyway.
I'm not sure why they would only target Mexicans, and I guess Alex Jones isn't gonna reveal that until tomorrow, or next week. Maybe they figure it can help get the economy back in order, by freeing up some jobs in the manufacturing sector - though you'd think it'd be easier to just ramp up those ICE raids.
