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.”

  2. 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.

  3. Now black folks are responsible for crackers being racist?! GTFH with that BS. White people never cease to amaze me. SMDH

  4. THIS IS WHY RACISM CONTINUE TO ENDURE WHITE PEOPLE BLAMING BLACK RAPPERS FOR THEIR BIGOTED SMALL MINDED RACIST CHILDREN’S ACTIONS AND NOT THE PARENTS WHO EDUCATED AND COACHED THEIR OWN WHITE CHILDREN WHERE’S THE ACCOUNTABILITY IT’S NOT HIP HOP AND DON’T BLAME IT ON THE A A A A A A A ALCOHOL! AND FUCK YOU MIKA BRZEZINSKI AND JOE SCARBOROUGH YOU’RE DEFLECTING THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR PEOPLE RACIST SPIRIT!
