Joseph Lowery, Jay-Z and Jeezy (racist vulgar rants after inaguration)
thecitizen.com ^ | 1-22-09 | staff

Posted on 01/22/2009 9:04:23 AM PST by wardaddy

Joseph Lowery, Jay-Z and Jeezy I watched the inauguration with hundreds of other Democrats on Tuesday and I would say that 98% of them were white. The room we were in was filled with applause, tears, laughter and a sense of community that I had not felt in a long time. We all watched with collective anticipation as the clock approached 12:00 noon because we knew at that moment our country would have a new President, a man who obviously we had all supported and had voted for. And after Obama took the oath of office and the inauguration continued, while Joseph Lowery delivered his prayer, we continued to watch and listen to the words with respect and deference for this Civil Rights icon. I must admit, however, when he uttered the phrase "and white will embrace what is right", I was taken aback by his words, offended really, that he would insinuate that whites did not embrace what is right, especially at this moment when all I could see around me were white people who HAD embraced what they believed to be right, by voting for Obama. If it weren't for the millions of white people in this country who voted for Obama, he would not have been elected President.

I appreciate David's mom and swmbo for trying to explain Lowery's mindset and the fact that he is most likely still living in the past. And while I respect and admire this man for enduring the injustices he faced and I celebrate his fight to change our prejudiced society, I'm still offended by Lowery's comment and believe it was totally out of place.

Last night, I watched a Jay-Z and Jeezy video showing the two rappers gyrate on stage to their rap songs they had written and performed for an inaugural event on Tuesday evening. I'm not a fan of rap anyway, but the vulgarities they spewed while rapping in tribute to Obama was sickening. I'm about as liberal as one can get but this display of vulgarity in celebration of our new President, was really disgusting. This is not art - it is crap.

For many people, other than aged civil rights icons and rappers, Obama represents unity and progress, not decade-old bitterness and divisiveness. He represents eloquence and intelligence, instead of ghetto, trash-talk rap and words rhyming with ho, mo-fo, or N*****. Obama is someone to emulate and to be proud of, not pull down to levels of bitterness or ghetto rap. Obama represents CHANGE so pull your ghetto pants up, clean up your language, stop gyrating

Oh wardaddy, thank you for posting!!
Fox was airing it last night and this AM. I hope Oprah invites JAYZ on her show to “explain” esp since he was sitting in the VIP section for the big day.
Jayz became rich under white presidents...he needs to shut his big face.

Hey liberal - hello....

What you have done is to admit the depth of your ignorance (of both culture and music).

Keep your hands in the air and step away from the headphones.

That's the only consolation I have about Obama's takeover. There's still millions of white people to vote him out or not vote in his replacement when the time comes.

They just have to be reached somehow.

Obama was going to be elected eventually anyway. He is like an obstacle that American had to get past first.

It may be better that he was elected early and during crisis so that whites have a chance to undo this egregious error.

I keep having evil thoughts wishing these people who voted this way would get the brunt of the evil that they’ve wrought for the rest of us.

I guess David felt the same way:

Psalm 141:9-10
9 Keep me from the snares they have laid for me,
from the traps set by evildoers.

10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets,
while I pass by in safety.

before oprah was risen to the level of a deity, i used to watch her once in a while. i liked her shows before she was full of herself, i guess that while she was on “crack” while doing her show.

if i turn in on now, it goes right off. i can’t stand the audience worship of oprah and oprah’s ego.

her silly audience would probably give a standing O to jay z while he was busy insulting them.

Given BO's socialist proclivities he's liable to get much less rich if Obama goes too far left. The golden egg goose can only take so much and it's amazing that some with the most eggs to lose are the most eager for a goose killing.

What you witnessed is precisely what Obama is about. Forget about the so-called ideals. This is it, in the flesh. All the “peace and love”. It is amazing; you were standing front and center and you failed to realize who you voted for.

Enjoy it. You helped to create a whole new kind of “love” and “unity” in America.

A first wake up shock in what promises to be a long and painful process for the good-hearted, well-meaning but rather soft-headed segment of the left.

There is a massive disconnect between why white liberals and blacks voted for this guy. I think most whites liberals think that an Obama Presidency is therapy for oppressed blacks. They think that if they can only show them that whites mean no harm then lower class blacks will cash in the ghetto culture and start listening to NPR. It's down hill from here.

You'll get no sympathy from me, you idiot.

It's YOUR culture, YOUR party, YOUR ideology that nurtures and encourages this kind of filth. And everytime we've spoken up against this garbage, we're immediately branded as racists, bigots, religious nuts, etc etc.

With all due respect, screw you. Eyes opened or not, you won't get any pats on the back for supporting this kind of cultural trash.

I haven’t watched Oprah in years. And Jayz needs to ask himself why does his woman try to look white? Foxy Cleopatra was the closest Beyonce has come to being a blk woman. I won’t say what cigarette ad cartoon Jayz looks like. But he does.

Why do I have a feeling that an elderly white person of another generation that is ‘living in the past’ wouldn’t have such forgiveness offered to them from the black community?

Whitey voted ‘bama in out of guilt in a fit of group-think hysteria generated solely by the media.

I saw the CNN poll Jan. 21 results and according to them 68% of blacks believed MLK’s dream had been realized. How many whiteys believed that? Only 39%.

Reparations of a million $$$ for every black and a recording contract for each MIGHT bring whitey up to 69%.

A few quotes from the great Eric Hoffer:

“The sick in soul insist that it is humanity that is sick, and they are the surgeons to operate on it. They want to turn the world into a sickroom. And once they get humanity strapped to the operating table, they operate on it- with an ax”.

“It is doubtful if the oppressed ever fight for freedom. They fight for pride and power — power to oppress others. The oppressed want above all to imitate their oppressors; they want to retaliate”.

“They who clamor loudest for freedom are often the ones least likely to be happy in a free society. The frustrated, oppressed by their shortcomings, blame their failure on existing restraints. Actually, their innermost desire is for an end to the “free for all.” They want to eliminate free competition and the ruthless testing to which the individual is continually subjected in a free society”.

“Where freedom is real, equality is the passion of the masses. Where equality is real, freedom is the passion of a small minority”.

“Unless a man has talents to make something of himself, freedom is an irksome burden. Of what avail is freedom to choose if the self be ineffectual? We join a mass movement to escape individual responsibility, or, in the words of the ardent young Nazi, “to be free from freedom.”

“Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life. Thus people haunted by the purposelessness of their lives try to find a new content not only by dedicating themselves to a holy cause but also by nursing a fanatical grievance. A mass movement offers them unlimited opportunities for both”.

Being born Black and after 61 years I could have predicted this turn of events. And make no mistake, the arrogance and sense of entitlement as shown by Jay-Z in that video in in the heart of obama and his woman aka “the first lady”

I have been exiled from the Black race due to my opposition to the fakery of obama. I cannot believe America was stupid enough to make this man and what he represents President of this great country.

You have been exiled from a segment of Black culture but I dare say you are still with the human race with values and dignity intact. It will be interesting to see if O still apologizes like he did with Ludacris thing during the primary campaign.

“Obama was going to be elected eventually anyway. He is like an obstacle that American had to get past first.”

If we hadn’t had him installed then it would have simply encouraged all those baiters to keep baiting if not encourage riots outright.

I am under the impression he was elected so that way minorities can no longer whine and whine and whine. He’s the Affirmative Action President because he was elected to for once and all shut those stupid spoiled brats up.

Now we owe them nothing. They have no right to demand anything.
