Now, to get at the heart of the subject, here we have a white boy, Eminem, who has benefitted so much from us black people, economically and culturally to be specific. Saying things that are out right racist and offensive to us as black people and specifically to our wonderful African Black
Women. In an article by Shaheem Reid of MTV News it states that ten years ago Eminem recorded tracks that were of a racist nature. In one of the songs Eminem says “All the girls I like to bone have big butts/ No they don't, 'cause I don't like that nigger sh--/ I'm just here to make a bigger hit.” As Em says, he’s just here to make a bigger hit; he “don’t like that nigger sh--” but we must remember that he continues to pimp and to love the nigger sh-- of his million-dollar slave 50 cent as long as he keeps producing those green backs. He is even executive producer of the Tupac film Resurrection's Soundtrack, continuing with the Eminem philosophy “I'm just here to make a bigger hit.”
Basically insuring that he gets the “bigger hit” while we get the biggest hit of racism, oppression, and deception. Eminem on another track continues to rap and says “Blacks and whites, they sometimes mix/ But black girls only want your money, 'cause they're dumb chicks,” In this crap, I mean rap, we see the contemptuous nature that Em has for our mothers, daughters, and sisters that nurture us. He apparently feels that all of our Black sisters are gold-diggin (sic) airheads.
When Em spoke about his white mother and white baby-mother he spoke about them specifically. He did not condemn all white women. This shows that it is an issue based on race and prejudice not one of making a mistake as a youngster, as Em says it is.
Now let me ask, who is really in control of what we call hip-hop today if Eminem, a Klan member in a baseball cap and jersey (the Klan’s apparent new uniforms), can come into the African Culture of hip hop and exploit it while he continually harbors feeling of racism towards people of African descent. Is Hip Hop really in our hands?
