MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ Hosts Blame Hip-Hop For SAE Racist Chant Video (Watch)

*The folks at “Morning Joe” have apparently put their foot in their mouths as they blame hip-hop music for the racist chant video featuring members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity from the University of Oklahoma.

The viral clip, which included SAE members chanting “there will never be a n*gga in SAE” along with singing about handing and N-words from trees, has ignited a severe backlash against the school since it surfaced Sunday.

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame reacted to the video via Instagram as he revealed how disgusted he was by the clip and as a result, cancelled his upcoming show at OU. The following is Waka Flocka’s Instagram post regarding SAE’s video:

Although they voiced their opposition to the video, the “Morning Joe” panel expressed that rap music, particularly Waka Flocka and the explicit lyrics and use of the N-word in his music, is to blame for the offensive clip and the resulting drama.

Needless to say, Black Twitter exploded and took the MSNBC hosts to task for their views. The social media backlash was acknowledged with the trending satirical hashtag #RapAlbumsThatCausedSlavery.

It’s one thing to sing a song that has the N-word in it. It’s another to proudly chant and sing along to a tune about lynching, killing and excluding blacks, who are clearly labeled as “n—ers.”

Realizing the damage done by what she said, “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski tried to make peace by appearing later on MSNBC to clarify her comments.

“The students in the video are responsible for their behavior. And as we said on our show this morning, they did it, and it’s beyond appalling,” Brzezinski said. “In no way is anybody else to blame for what they did on that bus,” she continued. “They are responsible and they made that choice.”

    Dude really??? Really??? That word was long used before Hip Hop Music. And I don’t hear Hip Hop Lyrics rapping about hanging someone of color.

    Don’t blame the music for your children’s actions. Your kids are adults and definitely know right from wrong. That’s the problem with some parents these days, make excuses instead of owning up and trying to correct the behavior.

Trump’s Misspelled Tweets are Coded Messages? Q’Anon is Even More Deranged Than You Thought (Watch)

*You’ve heard that the Trump supporters within the conspiracy movement Q’Anon believe that Democrats are running a pedophile ring and eating babies to extract a life-extending chemical from their blood. And that these child eaters/molesters include Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George Soros, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey.

But did you know these folks also believe that Donald Trump’s misspelled tweets – like “covfefe” and “the smocking gun” – are secret, coded messages for Q-Anon members? And that Trump was secretly recruited by top military generals to run for president in 2016 in order to break up this criminal cabal of Dems, end their control of politics and the media, and bring its members to justice?

Did you know that two Q’Anon believers were just elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, representing areas in Colorado and Georgia?

On “The Daily Show” Monday night, Trevor Noah broke down Q’Anon’s origins, their infiltration into mainstream politics and just how removed from reality its members really are

*Netflix has yanked Dave Chappelle’s comedy sketch series “Chappelle’s Show” from its platform.

The series originally aired on Comedy Central from 2003 to 2006. The comedian famously walked away from the show in 2005 due to creative differences.

Chappelle revealed in a lengthy Instagram video Tuesday that he requested for the series to be removed because he “never got paid” by ViacomCBS after he quit. 

“If you are (expletive) streaming that show, you are fencing stolen goods,” Chappelle said in the 18-minute video titled, “Unforgiven.” “They stole that (show) from me, they just took it.”

Watch him tell it via the Instagram video below.

“I found out these people were streaming my work and never had to ask me or they never had to tell me,” he continued. “Perfectly legal because I signed the contract, but is that right? I didn’t think so.”

Chappelle signed a deal with Netflix in 2016 for five stand-up specials that have been released on the platform, including “Dave Chappelle: Equanimity,” “Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin” and “Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones.”

“(Netflix) agreed that they would take it off their platform just so I could feel better,” Chapelle said. “That’s why I (expletive) with Netflix because they pay me my money, they do what they say they are going to do and they went above and beyond what you could expect from a businessman.”
