Jay-Electronica-Brooklyn-Hip-Hop-Festival-Twitter

Rapper Jay Electronica who is currently on tour with Common, felt the need to let it all out on Twitter in a series of controversial tweets that left nothing to the imagination.

Considering the current state of affairs, it is understandable that everyone has something to vent about, and what better audience to use as your sounding board than your loyal followers.

The New Orleans native tackled everything from “black-on-black crime” to President Obama – who he called out for not having “the nuts” to speak up in light of the tragedy involving Michael Brown and Eric Garner. He also accused Obama of lying to the people when he was running for office and declared that he should be “ashamed”.

It was a passionate attack on the media and those in authority who have helped to propel the racial strife that is gripping the nation. Whether you agree or not – it was a valid attempt to draw attention to the ongoing crisis and express frustration at those who haven’t risen to the occasion.

    I would also like to note that for President Obama to always talk about to black people about being patient because things are gradually getting better, he needs a reality check. In societies with long standing social tensions, things can get better for a long time, then they collapse. Before the Jews were exterminated by the Nazis, Germany had experienced a gradual process of Jewish integration over 150 years that was quite successful. It only took losing a war, and Great Depression to set the stage for Hitler to come to power and destroy all of that progress in a ten year period from the Nuremberg Laws to the end of WWII. Similarly, Yugoslavia dissolved, and fell into ethnic bloodletting after fifty years of stability under Communist rule. All we have to do is listen to how racists openly talk about President Obama to know that their hearts have not changed. Obama acts as if his election was an end to itself when the reality is that it set off a violent negative reaction, and the public support among whites for killer cops and vigilantes like Zimmerman is a clear symptom of the spike in racism engendered by his election.
    That is precisely why he needs to stand firm and call out racism, and battle it with whatever tools he has.

      “Obama acts ***as if his election was an end to itself*** when the reality is that it set off a violent negative reaction, and the public support among whites for killer cops and vigilantes like Zimmerman is a clear symptom of the spike in racism engendered by his election.”

      amen! and a lot of black folks right along w/him put their blinders on once he got sworn in like just being black in the white house was THE accomplishment… obama’s presence must be a movement to some folks the same way jay-z’s presence apparently is charity.

      Maybe that is why the Prez and Jay-Z were buds?

      You nailed this!! I have nothing to really add, but I have to say, with respect to everyone’s philosophies and opinions, I have really enjoyed reading this thread. This is the reason why I continue to frequent clutch.

      Well said. But we all know he won’t do that because he’s a white liberal.

    • Anthony

      In terms of policy, he is barely a decent liberal, He is more like a moderate or centrist.

    He appears to be standing with the FOI, he’s wearing a medallion with the sign of the 7 percent nation on it and he is consorting with an extremely unfortunate looking white woman. I…….okay. *logs off*

      He’s a step up from brothers who mess with unfortunate looking BROKE white women!
