HIP-HOP REPUBLICKINS: DEAD ON ARRIVAL

Grab your barf bags... It's time to meet Tiffany Shorter and Richard Ivory, possibly the lamest black people alive.




Believe it or not, I am very tolerant of Republikkkans. I understand some of their long-standing ideas on governing and freedoms, and I do remember that Abraham Lincoln was a member of the GOP. The problem with this is that these two twits are trying to mesh the ideology of the GOP with the cultural significance of Hip-Hop, as if you can belong to Hip-Hop culture and still remain a Republikkkan. The two are not now and will never be compatible.

In my own opinion, it is disgusting that Richard Ivory (ironic) says in the video that he likes Nas, the rapper who recently tried to name his album Nigger and was censored due to pressure from Reverend Al Sharpton, with help from Bill O'Reilly. By the way, how sad is it that the surest way to combine the persuasive powers of the far right and the far left is to try to make a piece of recorded art that investigates the power of a word?

I would bet money that Nas wouldn't like Richard or his ladyfriend. He even says around the 7:06 mark that he wants to see a black Republikkkan win a congressional seat representing Harlem in the next 20 years. Pardon me for a second...

*puking on myself*


Whew! Ok, back to the story, it is also vile that Tiffany Shorter says that she admires Richard Nixon around the 3:30 mark. She says that he was a moderate Republikkkan who instituted Affirmative Action, which she believes was needed at the time, yet she is now "ambiguous" about the program. What she probably doesn't know is that Nixon also allowed the infamous GOP "Southern Strategy" of using racism to begin under his oversight, which helped his party retain the electoral voting bloc of the south. In other words, starting Affirmative Action was probably the least that Nixon could do for turning the racial hatred that seethed beneath the Mason-Dixon Line against the party of Lyndon Johnson, who actually listened to great men like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Sure, we can get jobs at quota numbers from Republikkkans, but we can't have the power to create political change without a Democrat.


I look at Richard and Tiffany's faces, which have the putrid look of moral superiority and/or intellectual elitism, and I wish I could pepper spray them through my laptop screen. I am very averse to smart people who let themselves be promoted as racial pioneers by racists who use them as lab rats. Black Republikkkans are nothing but doppelgangers, like all Republikkkans. I look at them as walking brain-dead corpses, trying to recruit the rest of us into a hellish existence just so that they'll have company as they wait for a plate of dinner scraps to slide under their doors from inside the master's house.

really brah...up until Obama made it sexy to be into politics...most of these "Hip Hop" niggas had more in common with the GOP than they think. Hasn't the "fuck you pay me" ethos been the one of choice of the last 8 years? Doesn't "Hip Hop" have the same "fuck that gay shit" attitude as the GOP? And with the money that "Hip Hop" is generating...i see more similarites between Puff and Mcain than I do with Obama. Thats why i was puzzled in 04 when niggas was acting like they was riding for Kerry...really? They lived by the same standards and operations as Dubya.

This video is simply to lame ass black people. They aint Hip Hop in the least. This broad said she likes MJB and this nigga said he liked Nas and Kelis and 50. Whatever...the only name he left out was Nelly or whoever else is popular and corporate.

Believe me, there are plenty of Hip Hop Republicans out there...98% of them just dont realize it.

End of the day...these folks in this video are just two lames. Nigga talk like Damon Wayans on Bamboozled and shit.

Yeah mane. I think it's just that whoever writes the checks to minority education in the GOP decided that he wanted to do a little D-N-C himself (Divide-N-Conquer) on the black community.

Quiet as it's kept, Hip-Hop was starting to be it's own GOP until Kanye and the Hipsters started moving in and disrupting the same old "conserve the gangster and snap movement" way of thinking. When it's in true creative form and doesn't confine itself to one way of thinking, Hip-Hop is definitely Democratic.

Maybe that's why we stay losing unnecessarily sometimes. Not organized, not motivated enough, afraid to tackle the message, flip-flopping, Jesus pieces when we don't really mean it... you name it.

It's really just the term itself that is so damn wack. "Hip-Hop Republican"? Mitt Romney probably made that shit up. But you're right; from the Bad Boy era to 50 Cent's reign, we've seen more of the military-industrial complex of our culture than diversity and acceptance of actual art and intelligence.
