When did blacks become a bunch of old ladies clutching their pearls and fainting all over the place? “Owe my lowde,” they say in their angora cardigans and blue-tinted hair, “Somebody across the country used the most horrendous verbiage.” They’re like British aristocrats in Victorian England. Only, they’re not. We’ve created this mythical version of African America and some of them just can’t resist playing the role, especially when they’re being egged on by sobbing, white liberals.
This week some “horrific” footage of fratboys singing, “There will never be a nigger at SAE” and “You can hang him from a tree / But he’ll never sign with me” was unearthed to a gob smacked Please Stop Helping Us...

After denouncing this behavior, Sigma Alpha Epsilon house mother Beauton Gilbow was exposed online singing, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” The chapter was shut down and the perpetrators expelled. Hundreds of students gathered to protest what CBC News called an “ugly reminder” that racism is “alive and well today.” On Hannity, the extremely black Leo Terrell said “shame on you” to the equally black Deroy Murdock for not crowbarring the incident into a discussion about Selma. Larry Wilmore used the same phrase. The University president called the whole thing “disgusting” and the boy’s parents used “disgusting” in a letter describing how ashamed they are. A black frat at the school called the chant a “song of hate” and scheduled performer Waka Flocka Flame canceled his show claiming he too was “disgusted.” You might remember Flame as the guy who was jailed for violating his gun possession parole after eight teenagers were shot at a 2010 show in Gary, Indiana. Despite his background, the man behind the song, “Fuck Nigga” is very sensitive to frat chants with racial epithets sung to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know it.” Black Rednecks and Whi...

MSNBC claims Waka Flocka’s lyrics are part of the problem but I like the song “Fuck Nigga.” So do millions of white people. About 75% of rap fans are white. Us Gen-Xers grew up with gangsta rap and in a sea of thought policing, it seems to be the only uncensored music left. Trinidad James’ “All Gold Everything” sold over 500,000 copies to mostly white people and lyrics such as, “Don’t believe me just watch” and “Popped a molly – I’m sweating” are so entrenched in the common lexicon, they’ve reached tattoo status (yo, KP). In between these lines, James sings, “nigger, nigger, nigger” which is what Beauton Gilbow was quoting in her controversial clip. Don Lemon was one of the few to notice this. The reason someone recorded her repeating those lyrics is because it’s a ridiculous situation. The “rapping granny” is an old comedy trope by now. The impetus for the frat chant was the same. It’s like drawing a penis on a passed out guy. Politically correct liberals have made racism so taboo, it’s freeing to joke about it when you’re drunk and partying with a member’s only group. Does anyone in this country doubt for a second black frats have chants that are just as bad?
