At the recent BET Hip Hop Awards, commentator Toure asked rapper Soulja Boy (I am appalled at the lack of grammar and horrible spelling! I'll admit I have a fondness for standard English.) The exchange between the two went something like this:
"What historical figure do you most hate?” He was stumped. I said, "Others have said Hitler, bin Laden, the slave masters..." He said, "Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we'd still be in Africa." My jaw, at this point, was on the ground."We wouldn't be here," he continued, having no idea how far in it he'd stepped, "to get this ice and tattoos."
WTF!? Talk about some dumbass ignorance, Soulja Boy tell 'em. And no, he wasn't joking. Pure dumbassness indeed. Soulja is a moron and obviously knows nothing about the history of slavery, the enslaved Africans brought to this country against their will or the blood, sweat and tears that go into producing his ice. All so he can run around acting and looking like an imbecile with his ice and tattoos. Lord help us!
