Had quite a few people doing spit-takes when these first popped up.

I'm more offended over the knee-jerk bullshit than anything else. Take the Dukes of Hazard off the air? Yeah, that's really going to improve the world somehow...

This song came out recently and I wonder why it's not popular. It speaks the truth and racism was never dead and it will never truly die unless we accept that we are part of one central race no matter color of skin, religion or gender the human race at the same time though never be ashamed of your race just don't let it get out of proportion to the point of feeling racial superiority towards others like what happened here. I am all for the empowerment of my people but if we want that empowerment to work we need to get up and use it gain wisdom from it and go from there we sit around and wait for change complaining about police brutality and racism but that change will never come sitting on our asses waiting. Instead of waiting for change, we need to do it ourselves and show we are not ignorant nor are we scared don't get me wrong I am by no means promoting racial superiority I am just sick of seeing this injustice towards us as a people we have to fight for our respect and humanity as a fucking race.

I can't be the only one that gets an eye twitch about an Uzi weighting a ton and so help me CLIPS CLIPS CLIPS.

Other than that, I agree, get a gun, learn how to use it to protect yourself and others.

Yep. Racism is alive & well.
Believe me, we are doing the best we can.
We are often being advocates for other races as well too.
Our people are so amazing, really. I mean, we (black Americans) have made our own rich culture in only 400 years. We are referenced a lot, people like our style, our features and wanna be us and part if our culture...but people just love our culture, and not us.
We're still going strong. So I assure you, we are practically always doing things to help this cause, spread awareness, and staying woke. I can't say I'm doing much, or even contributing, honestly, but I wanna show that my people are definitely doing so, and trying their hardest too.

Getting rid of racism though, is never gonna happen, sadly. Everyone won't simply see everyone as human, and won't go past our race/color of our skin.
But that doesn't mean we should stop fighting. Every bit of progress towards the goal of equality among all races counts. And all our voices counts, even if we are told it doesn't.
It really is annoying, fighting for something we should of always have.

You are absolutely right our culture around the world is popular around the world from people in the middle east enjoying Lionel Richie to Rap blowing up huge in places like Japan or Mexico they obviously know who Run DMC or 2Pac are and when I think about that it just put a smile on my face knowing we did that and that is something nobody can take away from us I wish our people just knew how admired we are outside of the US.

Banner is still releasing music? The song was great (pretty big KRIT fan) but my opinion of the dude is mostly shaped by this.

One of the best conversations I have ever had in my life was with a Chinese foreign exchange student at my school discussing Hip-Hop music.

It's very serious. The amount of ignorance touted by hate groups on the extremes of leftist and rightist groups is quite amazingly deplorable. Like state executions of people who are later found not guilty because they lacked the facts. There's a ton of idiots out there, and it's much easier to kick back and watch the show rather than getting involved with the absurdity left behind a rotting gene pool of semi-humans.

Not really. Besides the ban on the flag and denouncing of the graduation of confederate soldiers who are LONG since dead already, the whole uproar that's going on will fall under media attention about as slowly as any other hot button racial issue that has weeded itself up in the country over the past decade. This may be a media frenzy a little bit longer than the Trayvon martin uproar, but I'd wager that it won't last MUCH longer.

My culture and heritage as a black person is something I can smile about and it brings me joy to know that culture has spread around the world little boys and girls wanting to be just like Michael Jordan or Jackson to Stevie Wonder and there is one interview I watched and liked by Roger Troutman did in Tokyo all in all our culture is rich with history not just athletes and musicians either but geniuses too. Here's the interview but avoid the title: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJhni9kXA5U

Sane same. I agree.
Not to mention a lot of Kpop girl groups reference Beyonce for coreography dances, Japan has even a good amount of admirers of black american cultures as well, also literally every popular music genres today were created by black Americans.
Like pop & rock music.

You must live under a rock tbh.
Because I've been hearing issues on racism for what feels like every week since Ferguson.
Literally.
Like, you'll even hear of these things on a Holiday I bet.
