FT.: Kanye is a Nigger!

Kanye Header

Fuck That is a look at the strange, the nonsensical and the simply fucked up aspects of modern hip-hop culture. By me.

It’s said that in times of sorrow, our primal coping mechanisms force us to react to tough circumstances with either anger or laughter. Well actually that’s a load of bullshit that I just made up. But after the much-publicized Girl Interrupted moment at the VMAs a few nights ago, it’s been interesting to see the variety of reactions.

We’ll start with the ugly first. It doesn’t take much to get the racism goin’ in some folks. Infact most of the time the only thing they need are closed doors…. or Republican rallies. But the reactions from the sons (and daughters) of the good ol’ boys was venomous and immediate. Let it be known, anytime these uppity nigroes be assassin’ our fine country belles, a southern gentleman will always be on hand to tweet about it.

My favourite? “I’m not a racist BUT KANYE WEST IS A NIGGER.” Of course you’re not Jimmy, of course you’re not. Although it’s also important to point out – would Kanye have stormed the stage had it been Mary J Blige or Keisha Cole accepting the award? Methinks not.

If white-on-black racism wasn’t enough, now we have black/mixed/possiblyarab-on-black racism. Simply put, Barack Obama doesn’t care about black people:

Then there’s the delightful comedy. The internet memes, the inside jokes and email forwards (if you can find time for them in between the TOMMY HILFIGGER WENT ON OPRAH AND SAID HE HATES BLACK PPL OMG ones). First came a classic piece of revisionist history:

Kanye Cracker

Then things really took off:

Maybe more importantly was Kanye’s own reaction. The moment he leapt back offstage, most people could see the “I’m sorry but at least somebody still keeps it real!!!!” shitty apology a mile off. A couple hours later….


Nothing if not predictable. And what the fuck is it with rappers and the internet? It’s like they’re incapable of typing text in anything other than caps-lock. You’re an attention whore. We get it. Stop shouting at us already, jesus. Then again, no matter what Kanye goes through, it could always be worse…


“Show me what ya GOT, Lil’ Mama!.” LOL, Fuck That.
