Culture Vultures and Black Celebrities Pt 1 

Hi guys, this video is addressing some concepts around ‘culture vultures’ and cultural appropriation, and what that means during times of racial turmoil. Many of the non-Black artists that achieve success in Black culture remain quiet during periods of unrest for Black folks, and I discuss some of my own thoughts and feelings towards them as well as Black celebrities that choose not to speak up during this video.

Thanks for watching!

There are two reasons you don’t see me calling out Black on Black crime.

1) that statement is racist in and of itself. Every race commits the most crime within & against their race. Bringing up BOBC is a tactic to distract us from the truth of the matter which is:

2) the effects of white supremacy and institutional racism are the biggest factor as to why there’s so much violence in the inner city. THERE WOULDN’T EVEN BE AN INNER CITY IF OPPRESSIVE AND RACIST SYSTEMS WERE NOT IN PLACE. Therefore:

3) I would rather discuss the ROOT of the problem instead of grasping at random points of a conversation because that will get us nowhere!!!

what’s up with girls that feel the need to destroy the “weak fragile ego of a man” to feel empowered. how insecure do you have to be for the only way to feel confident is by ruining the confidence of others. how bitter are you if you can only feel special by hurting others.

when a person from an oppressive groups insults a person from an oppressed group it is more harmful than if a person from an oppressed group insults a person from an oppressive group.
