Tavis Smiley is joining the calling of putting the rap community on blast. While jibbing with M.I.A. about her pregnancy, labor pains and her joy from getting to performing with big named rapper TI at the Grammy’s, he decided to get out of pocket:

M.I.A.: The Grammys are here [in Los Angeles] anyway, so it just worked out. Like, as soon as I came they were, like, “You can’t fly,” and then I found out that I was nominated. And that’s kind of why they invited me to go on the show to do the Grammys and perform there. They say anything could trigger off labor, so.

Tavis: Not now,  not for the next nine minutes, please.

M.I.A.: I know, I know. But I think, like, singing with Jay-Z and Lil Wayne and Kanye an…

Tavis: Yeah, that could make anything happen.

M.I.A.: T.I. could, yeah.

Tavis: Yeah, that could make…with them Negros, anything could happen.

Are Bossip Folk offended?

    Tavis has always been an ignorant fool, pretending to be so righteous. He’s a fake and a paid talking head just like Michael Eric Dyson and the rest of those laim blacks they always have on t.v. speaking for the “black community”. As if we’re some monolithic group, as if there’s only one “black voice”. I hate rap and everything it’s become but I’d never air out my people’s dirty laundry on a white media outlet.

  • stay off his dick.....

    yet another bossip non-issue…

  • I LOVE YOU BEYONCE, MARIAH, AND ALICIA!

    I’m not offended at all. If rappers can say it 40x + in their songs, why should I get offended by that comment.

  • I LOVE YOU BEYONCE, MARIAH, AND ALICIA!

    And is that the best picture y’all could find of M.I.A? Seriously..

  • REALNESS

    Thats how they carry themselves. Do you see any races bragging about selling drugs and killing their own?

    Do you see any other race dressing like real men then all of a sudden change and start acting feminine with loud colors?

    Do you see other races grabbing their packages and walking around with their draws out and pants donw?

    THEY ARE NIGGARDLY ACTING NEGROES..

    I know Tavis voted for Obama despite the things that were said in the media. So no, I am not offended by what he said. Anyways, “them Negroes” do get on my damn nerves anyway.

  • Hell Is Not Full

    Poor Tavis starving for attention, and his real feelings starting to show. Let’s see if he will discuss this at his State of the Black Union conference.

    Oh yes, rappers do use the N-word all of the time, but Tavis isn’t a rapper, he’s supposed to be more intelligent, more righteous, more constructive than that.

    He is a Buster – and the truth will be known.
