|If Jay-Z and Beyonce were racist, why would they allow two White women sit near them at the Barclay's court side?|
A few years ago, the News Corp tabloid had a writer attack the media mogul's decision to become part owner of the NBA Nets. That move would carry the NBA team from New Jersey to Brooklyn.
The writer called the media mogul's decision to have a NBA team, a recipe for disaster.
He even referred the team to the New York NIGGERS.
This writer Phil Mushnick would say that:
As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots — what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new “urban” home — why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?
Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N------s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B----hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!
Yeah many felt that the Post went too far in their criticism.
Now Barack and Michelle Obama are good friends with the Carters.

Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Carter are professionally known as Jay-Z and Beyonce.
Now the racist right (ahem) are fired up over a pendent that the media mogul wore while he and his wife were at the Brooklyn Nets game.
I happen to click on That Guy Who Throws Shit To The Wall's website and it lead me to the New York Post article.
In this tabloid piece, the pendent represents the Five Percenters.
In a big headline:
Black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, white men are the devil, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost and only a small percentage of people understand the world.
These are just some of the beliefs behind the bling — the gaudy Five Percent Nation medallions worn by Jay-Z and Carmelo Anthony.
Last week, all eyes at the Barclays Center weren’t on Jay-Z’s better half, Beyoncé — but on the coaster-size golden pendant swinging from the rapper’s neck as the couple sat courtside. Asked once if the group’s symbol — an eight-pointed star with the number 7 in the middle — held any meaning for him, the rapper shrugged, “A little bit.”
So what exactly do Five Percenters believe?
“The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally,” says Michael Muhammad Knight, an author of two books on the radical group.
“Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”
The group was founded in 1964 in Harlem by Clarence Smith, who later changed his name to Allah, a former student of Malcolm X who disagreed with the Nation of Islam over the nature of God.
Smith rejected the notion of a supernatural deity and instead believed that all black men had God in them and that black women were “earths” who took on a complementary yet subordinate role to their gods.
The idea is empowering, Knight says.

Five Percenters don’t consider themselves Muslim, but their name comes from the Nation of Islam’s belief that 5 percent of humanity are “poor righteous teachers” who exist to enlighten the masses about the truth of existence.
Members will sometimes refer to themselves as “scientists” to drive home the search for truth. And they face a tall task, because under their belief system, 10 percent of the world’s population controls the other 85 percent by spreading the belief in a “mystery God.”
To show followers the way, members must learn the Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabet — powerful tools to decipher the meaning of the universe. In both, each letter and number represents a concept: for example, 1 is knowledge, 2 is wisdom, while A is Allah and B is be, or born. The number 7 on Jay-Z’s pendant stands for God.
|The prince of race-baiting.|
“The first lesson I learned from the Five Percent was simple: F–k white people. Seriously. White people are devils,” Knight, 36, who is white and converted to Islam as a teenager, once wrote.
He insisted the movement has been welcoming and that he views the controversial sentiment as a statement about power rather than biology.
“For me, it is about who is marked as privileged in the power relations of this society,” he says.
Some followers take exception to those who transform their flag into a fashion accessory.
“Jay-Z is not an active member — no one has vouched for him” Saladin Allah, a representative of the group’s upstate region, told The Post. “It was always understood that you don’t wear the regalia if you don’t totally subscribe to the life.”
Now of course the racist right starts on Sunday nights with Loudmouth Bill Cunningham. He was the first conservative agitator to mention this. Then of course, I am guessing King Hippo was the next one. I happened to sleep through his show.
Lastly, the most annoying of them all. That Guy Who Helped Obama Win (aka That Punk Ass Sean Hannity) is devoting a whole segment of his program to this.
Wow, if I didn't know better, I think these guys are pissed!
Yeah, Barack Obama won reelection on the power of hip-hop. Jay-Z is a product of this. He openly endorsed the president for reelection and encouraged his stans to vote.
The racist right have been really bitter about this. So they've devoted their time trashing him and Beyonce at every whim.
Again, why should we give the racist right any credence?
