During the premier of the Kanye West track "all falls down" on MTV, I noticed that the words "White Man" where bleeped from the line:

Quote:
Drug kid by jordans,
Crack kid by crack,
And the white-man get paid off all dat.


I suspect that line is a superb illustration of Using Words Correctly.

This is what rap should be, using words to reveal truth.

Those are interesting lyrics...

Unfortunately,

In General, specially right Now, Hip Hop/Rap Music-Genre's main central objective is not to Replace White Supremacy with Justice.

Or is it ?

I mean, unless talking shit about Hos' and Bitches', Gold, Money and a Cadillac is Replacing White Supremacy with Justice ?

The Hip Hop/Rap music industry has done more to Highly Niggerize Non-White People, specially those People classified as "Black", not only Niggerize but Dehumanize Black People, Make them seem and look like nothing but a bunch of illiterate, dumb, slang'speakin' "Thugs"....

From my fam's/friend's and my own perspective, I cannot think about "Black" People without thinking about...

Baggy Jeans

A "Hood Rag"

"Throwback Jerseys"

Gold Teeth

Sloppy, Slurred and "Ebonics" Language/speech

Gold Chains

Jive Talkin'-Cool Smooth Dancin'-"Mack Daddy" Pimp Nigga!

"Yo Yo and YO DOG!"

Severely Over-Sexed Horny Ass Big Penis Grabbin' Mo Fos!

and...

"Crystalle!"

And it is interesting when a Suspected White Person/White Supremacists tries his/her best to "Identify" with a Non-White Person...

For example,

(and this has happened more than once)...

After receiving service and purchasing a product from a suspected White Person, after the sale, the dude says "Goodbye" to me by saying:

"Aight Dog, See ya Later"

"Aight Dog ?"

(((shaking my head)))

the "funny" thing is, WE dont even address each other like that ! ("Dog")

the other time we got this from a "Redneck Looking" suspected White Person.

"Wsup Dog"

again, We dont use that word...

but we are Non-White/Niggers!

The Hip Hop/Rap music Industry, Under the SYSTEM of Racism White Supremacy, is also responsible for that "Image" of Niggers.

In general, I do not recommend Niggers to "look for Truth" and seek the Replacement of the System of White Supremacy through Hip Hop/Rap music.

I don't know RangerX, some songs might not have any suggestions to replace a system of white supremacy/racism with justice... but some might LEAD you to the revelation of truth... unfortunatally you hardly hear these songs.

And you know how long we been waiting for you
Devil, We know what you been contemplating to do
We have been here before, but surprise again
It is time for niggaz to uprise again
But we've been down for so long that you wondering how
It ain't a weapon taht you got that can stop me now
Because we don't die... won't die...
And won't never get no better if we don't try
But don't get scared niggaz get prepared, I gotta care
Cause them fuckin' devils never cared so come and find us
Get behind us
If you ain't hear the message clear, then rewind us
Cause we comin'

Well, in retrospect, one could say that Mr. West has open with his thoughts on Race.

With lines like:

"Racism still alive they just be concealin' it"

"They take me to the back and pat me,
Askin' me about some khakis,
But let some black people walk in,
I bet they show off their token blackie,"

"I get down for my grandfather who took my momma
Made her sit that seat where white folks aint wanna us to eat
at the tender age of 6 she was arrested for the sit-ins
with that in my blood I was born to be different"

"Drug dealer buy Jordans, crackhead buy crack
And the white man get paid off of all of that"

"We at war with terrorism, racism, and most of all we at war with ourselves"

And most recently,

"George Bush doesn't care about Black People"

This is what 'Rap' should be focused on...The things that are needed most, as opposed to what is needed least.
