Joe Camel Helping Race Relations…How?

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Pink shirted, smiling, and with “white friends”; Jay-Z was spotted leaving the Robin Thicke Birthday Party at the Waverly Inn. In a recent interview Hov said that race relations going so well in America are largely credited to him and Snoop:

JAY-Z has credited hip-hop with improving race relations across America – because white kids who idolize him and SNOOP DOGG don’t become racists….… The rapper insists there’s too much negativity about the musical genre and its related culture – and few dwell on the good it’s done. He explains, “It has changed America immensely… Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations. “Racism is taught in the home… and it’s very hard to teach racism to a teenager who idolises, say, Snoop Dogg. It’s hard to say, ‘That guy is less than you.’ The kid is like, ‘I like that guy, he’s cool. How is he less than me?’ “That’s why this generation is the least racist generation ever. You see it all the time. Go to any club. People are intermingling, hanging out, enjoying the same music.”

Hov has a valid point. Now, if we can shake the thug mentality that plagues our men, we will continue to progress.

    FYI: Jay-Z…they are still racist….it was only different back in the day because they let you know it….now a days…they are what I call “closet racists”…they hate blacks but are scared to say it because it’s not politically correct.

  • jswang

    He has a point.

  • Lady J

    I must say, I agree with his statement…Living in a town with mostly whites; it is funny to ride up alongside a car that’s booming with hip hop music only to see 2 white males or all white females in a car bobbing their heads & singing to the music word for word….yes, hip hop has bridged cultures and we still have a lot more to go…

  • Roni

    I wish I could agree with Jay Z. But I can’t. I was raised in Birmingham and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve experienced little white kids that idolize Snoop and then use the N word or acknowledge that they think people of color are less than… Unfortuanately, they see celebrities as the exception not the rule…Breaks my heart…Baby steps I guess…

  • Avatar

    I can’t imagine the reason for that stain on his jeans.

  • Swag-a-licious

    I see his jeans are getting tighter and tighter…he will be in skinny jeans too in a minute…I wonder if his money will actually fit in his jeans.


    Can we all say, “BULL CRAP!!!”

  • Swag-a-licious

    I work in an all-white office and I agree that many people enjoy hip-hop..

    But you know what’s funny ladies….it’s hard to find a white girl that like Beyonce….I wonder why??

    Morning Colonel, jb.

  • jb_1030 (No Amber Rose shoes this month)

    What’s up UNVME

  • Luv-Lee

    Baggy jeans are played but white people still rock it. You know how they dont let ish go.

  • Luv-Lee

    The shirt shoulda matched the stain..woulda look a little better…they dont like to match in hollyweird…they call it too matchy-matchy

  • yeah ok

    beyonce is the s*** which bother some of the white girls in my office too.
    but I don’t think rap music was the cause of white american think bad of black people. Hell that was something they thought since we came off the boat. Hip hop may not be perfect but it is a brand, business, style all in it self. as black people we are educated, enterprises, self made, self taught. as well as enterainers. plenty of us work in corp. america and in many other part of life to take care of our families. No race is perfect. But we have come a long way. The assignation of the african america race has been going on for a long time. We will make progress once we see HOW FAR WE NEED TO GO.
