“Lil Wayne is an Enemy to the Black Community” Dr. Boyce Watkins

All I gotta say is he’s late I’ve been saying this since “Bling Bling”, full article:

Dr. Boyce Watkins, a Syracuse University professor and writer, has had enough of Lil’ Wayne. On his Your Black World blog, he takes the New Orleans rapper to task after discovering him to be “an enemy of the Black community” after hearing the track “We Be Steady Mobbin“:

I swear you can’t fuck with me
But I can fuck your girl and make her nut for me/
Then slut for me, then kill for me, then steal for me
And of course it’ll be your cash/
And I’ll murder that bitch and send her body back to your ass..

“This verse, and a few others, served as the straw that broke the camel’s back. There is a difference between good, fun entertainment and…“weaponized” brainwashing. It’s one thing when scattered bits of poison happen to hit your children. It’s another thing when it’s concentrated, packaged and targeted in large quantities. Corporate America has wired this game in such a way that millions of our kids are encouraged to consume the messages of Lil Wayne and other artists, the same way soldiers are asked to recite the pledge of allegiance every morning before breakfast.

As a direct result of messages they are fed from commercialized hip-hop music, millions of black boys are religiously emulating the behaviors being promoted by their favorite hip-hop artists….black men are the most likely to die from gun violence, spreading HIV in droves (with far too many of us not going to the doctor), the most likely to go to prison and the least likely to be educated. Commercialized hip-hop is no longer good, fun entertainment; it has evolved into a regimen of brainwashing that is no less powerful than the one that Adolf Hitler used during the Nazi regime.

I am now officially boycotting Lil Wayne. It breaks my heart to do this, because the last thing I’d ever want to do is make an enemy out of my own brother. I also consider Lil Wayne to be one of the most talented commercialized hip-hop artists in America (I clearly admit to respecting his lyrical capabilities). But one thing I can’t support is this kind of irresponsible music without realizing the implications that it has on our young children, and how their lives are destroyed before they even have a chance to make decisions for themselves. The same way the Arabic community pushes children to memorize the Qur’an at an early age, African American children memorize the recipe for their own self-destruction on the radio every single morning.”
