If a white man said this would he get blasted in multiple articles and headlines?
Also he literally said:
"They just wanna keep their bloodline pure"
First of all, he's a rapper. Rappers say controversial things all the time. If a white rapper would be talking about this, same reaction. If a white non-celeb said this, not the same reaction. Obviously.
Also, the quote about the bloodline, I don't think the dude literally meant, nor understood what that sentence means.
He tried to express that it is not racist to want to keep things with the people who are the same as you. Which is not racist, it's merely not open and nationalistic. Which by itself, is not bad.
As long as you only suggest things, but do not act upon those opinions, no one can really say he was harmed.
All in all, what's your problem with this, OP?
White guilt liberals give black people a free pass on almost everything.
If I wasn't smart I'd be a racist.
watched the whole video. first uninhibited thought was ah thanks charlamagne <3
basically he says he cant relate with transgender people because he's never felt dysphoria so he doesnt understand it.
then he says no he wouldnt wish it on his child because it's a hard life and no one would wish that on their child, especially after being told the majority of trans are prostitutes and porn stars. this is where stealth fucks selfishly fuck the community because it gives the majority an incorrect perception of a transgender person's ability to integrate with society. thats neither here nor there.
he isnt racist saying he'd like his daughter to bring home x because he follows it up with at the end of the day he just wants her to be happy and with someone she loves regardless. yes it'd be easier for him to relate, but it's irrelevant.
the reason i though charlamagne <3 was because at the end of the video he was like they arent hurting anyone else so let them be, they have enough to deal with as it is. he just doesnt understand what would bring someone to feel it was necessary because of how hard a life it is.
This just sounds like genuine confusion with no real hate. What's the issue? It sounds like I could sit down and smoke with him and after he'd probably walk away getting it. We have shitty PR, I don't think anybody rational would disagree with that.
>a black guy
>a black English speaking guy
I am genuinely really offended.
He's wrong on some points, but his overall attitude on the trans topic doesn't strike me as being offensive, and I'm a tranny.
Honestly, he sounds a lot better about it than I would expect from a lot of rappers. The guy's straight up confused about things, and seemingly would appreciate a trans person talking with him on the level.
I'll take "This shit confuses me, but I would like to try and understand this shit." any day.
Hell, he even specifically says he doesn't think it's sinful, evil, or even bad despite doing the whole "gangsta rapper Christian" routine. The only parts he directly objects to is the idea of having a kid that "decides" to be trains and having a kid that gets into a relationship with someone that's trans. He got fed wrong info by the interviewer, so I chalk that up to ignorance and misinformation, which can be fixed with the right information. I mean, what sane person would want their kid to be trans? I'm one and I would hope that my kid is cis because this shit does suck, so I can't fault the general concern from him given how the question was worded (i.e. that Vlad guy was not the right person to talk about this).
Now what he said about racial/cultural matters...eh, he's a bit fucked up there. No, it's not cool to practice eugenics that way with humans just because it's considered fine to do with dogs. Like a lot of people, he conflates race with culture.
Now wanting your kid to marry within one's general culture, that's different, and not anything I could condemn within certain bounds (suggesting and preferring, not demanding and refusing).
