Ah, the face of racism in 2015 is just glorious, isn’t it? It never talks about race. But it discredits people of colour’s contribution to culture at the very core as “not art”.
Saying this is an act of “not liking rap music” is utterly insane. This is an act of cleverly veiled, yet no less disgusting racism. I don’t think there’s ever been a petition against a white artist of any genre of music that had to face this type of bullshit criticism, where someone launched a petition to ban Caribou from a festival because they “didn’t like electronic music”. Some of it doesn’t even have words in it!*
At the same time, more and more white people feel that they’re being increasingly discriminated against because they’re white. Because being called out on one’s bullshit has become synonymous with discriminating against someone.
I really need to move to an island where there’s no internet connection. I just can’t deal with this sorta crap anymore.
* as an aside, speaking as someone who considers The College Dropout and My beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy among his favourite albums of all time, I actually didn’t like Yeezus because while the production was stellar, I feel that Kanye’s (often misogynistic) lyrics weren’t on par with what was going on musically.
95% of the people who signed it aren't going to Glastonbury
Have you seen the comments on Glastonbury's status? They're fucking pathetic. Some people even called Kanye ridiculous.
This whole thing is just stupid, I fucking hate the UK.
Who gives a shit. Kanye is a douchebag first and a black man second. His race has nothing to do with why most people hate him. Nobody wants him anywhere Because he's a shitty, stupid, no talent baby.
>Blacks attempt to enter mainstream culture while retaining their identity
>Jazz, civil rights, blossoming black business districts
>Blacks secede from mainstream society
>Race riots, antagonism towards and from whites, ghettos, hip hop
Kanye West's first half of his career was taking the main melody of other musicians work, looping it over a generic drumbeat and spitting shit-tier lyrics over it. A song like "Gone" is basically a glorified remix of Ottis Redding, made as painfully accessible and dumbed down as possible.
Kanye's second half of his career is paying talented producers for their beats and then spitting shit-tier lyrics over them. He is a hack.
>Some people even called Kanye ridiculous.
not that i agree with this stupid petition, but why is it outrageous to call kanye ridiculous? I mean even if you appreciate his art some of the shit he's pulled is pretty ridiculous
>tfw kanye's target audience are underage rich white suburbanite male american teenagers
It has nothing to do with race you delusional fuck. People just see him as the overrated mediocre artist he is, the fact that he thinks he's better than everyone else while keeping the whole douchebag image only adds fuel to the fire
>Have you seen the comments on Glastonbury's status? They're fucking pathetic. Some people even called Kanye ridiculous.
Has Oasis ever been banned from a concert for behaving like assholes?
The only good answer
>literally says mayo ass whitey in the next sentence
>tfw i am a mayo ass whitey

>Funk above Blues
>Blues not first
What a fucking pleb. Go ask any jazz artist and they'll tell you blues should be top and that funk is just shintty jazz mixed with soul and with more groove.
>not liking musician
>making a petition to cancel the musicians performance
It doesn't matter if the guy is black or white this is ridiculous. I don't like Kanye either, why would I try to cancel a concert other people might want to see?
calling things like this racism detracts from incidents of REAL, covert, racism.
kanye west consistently makes statements and does things to put an asshat on himself. whether it's genuine or just for more publicity. this is what l i t e r a l l y happens to you, in life, if you do such things. it's not racism. the UK has *actual* racism issues. i watched a video where white soccer fans wouldn't let an african businessman onto a train. they literally pushed him out, over and over again. as far as i know, there has been no petition to stop that.
i see what you mean about the uk having issues with race, but you're completely fucking wrong about the chelsea stuff.
There was some petition just like this asking to cancel a Nickelback show, your point is invalidated.
Also fuck off. Go back to tumblr. The quicker everyone shuts their dumb fucking mouths about "racism" the sooner it will cease to be an issue.
So what you're saying is that it's impossible to (dis)like a black person for who he is, and people who claim to do exactly that MUST (dis)like that person for being black. That's pretty racist, bro.
>You are not excused from the racism and misogyny of your peers
>mayo ass whiey
This is why I hate liberals and feminazi's, they're just as bad as actual neonazi's.
>Friend joins the anarchist movement and creates a squat
>Sounds cool let's check it out
>Hope to see some people who're into punk and fight the man
>Dudes wearing dresses as a statement
>Tumblr haircuts in all the colors of the rainbow
>Two girls are fighting eachother to learn how to fend off rapists while using derogatory terms for men
>Go for a beer
>Can get a vegan burger if I want
>Obvious flamer comes up to me and calls me a nazi for wearing a Burzum t-shirt
>Woman actually says she's triggered by my shirt I'm not shitting you
>Guy explains how I should keep my political opinions outside of the judge free zone they've created in here
>He uses Ey Ir and Ur in his speach (Later asked my friend and he told me he does this to make sure he doesn't offend any trannies)
>People ask for my political views
>Tell them I'm right winged
>People mostly ignore me at this point or make remarks aimed towards me and call me a nazi
>Nobody ever asked how right winged I am
>I'm a homosexual who was kicked out of his parent's house and lives in a squat himself
>Not allowed to join the hugbox because not the same political views and a Burzum shirt
you mean the majority of rap you listen to. to say rap became a genre with a predominantly would imply black audiences have a new big genre or just stopped listening to music. what actually happened is that most critically acclaimed rap strayed further away from popular rap. suburban whiteys are listening to the critically acclaimed and/or the poppier shit. most black people are listening to the rest
>people don't like my favorite highly controversial musician, they must be a racist
>"Because being called out on one’s bullshit has become synonymous with discriminating against someone." said just a couple lines after "But it discredits people of colour’s contribution to culture at the very core as “not art”.
>mayo crackers whiteys should bow down before "people of colour"
>off topic rant about how white people feeling discriminated
>unironically said misogynistic
Pls be trolling
>mfw can say anything I desire because I sort of look Jewish
I don't say rude things to people, but I love shutting down liberal whites who try and talk down to me when I tell them I'm a European Jew who had family die in the holocaust (Neither is true, I'm not European and as far as I know no one in my family died in the holocaust)
STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP EVERYONE SHUT THE FUCK UP I FUCKING HATE THESE THREADS IS THIS WHAT /MU/ IS NOW HOLY SHT JUST STOP I JUST WANT TO FUCKING TALK ABOUT MUSIC I DONT CARE ABOUT RACISM PLEASE JUST MAKE IT STOP
Holy shit that's genius
I can just imagine the backpeddling after somebody tells a room full of white people that they've never been discriminated against only to be told that one of their families was a victim of mass racial genocide
>mfw black jewcurls and a big jew nose
>mfw I do this too
Sometimes he just forgoes the "remix" part and just steals songs straight-up. A good example of this is "My Way Home", which is literally just a Gil Scott-Heron song with a slower tempo and a lower transposition.
The actual song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSpBs1ghyoo
Kanye's version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP9V1gWu-O0
no I'm actually serious
is it normal to feel personally attacked when people hate on your favorite artists/sport clubs/politic views?
feels almost like a literal pain in the heart, feelsbadman.
> Tries to make everything about him, no matter where he goes, isn't respectful of others on stages
People get assmad that other people don't like that shit. Even though if you went to a party with a kanye type you would just stand their hating him cause you're too pussy to tell him to shut up or leave.
So basically if I think Kanye is shit I'm a racist?
Because he is shitty, both as a musician, a rapper, and as a person.
I love how you can't even be critical of a black person anymore without being labelled a racist.
