This is yet another reason why I choose not to discuss these things with the likes of you. First, you describe the subject of her song as not universal and the content of memes and then you pick the lines of the song that go against the reflection of your sentiments as a human. I truly doubt you’ll have anything to gain from this but:
The first line made absolutely no sense so I won’t address it. If anything, it’s only exactly what I explain in the end.
Then you go on to mention BLM riots “where cities were destroyed and people physically attacked”. Do you truly understand the reason for the riots and what happened?
A) the killings
B) the history of killings
C) the history of killings and the lack of response
D) the years of oppression
E) the continued oppression
F) slavery (<- this ended 150 years ago btw. Just a fun fact)
G) repercussions of slavery
H) people like you
I) all of the above?
You see, the reason I put option H in there is because I wholly expect you to ignore the other options and do exactly what you did above. So I put it in there to give you the freedom to spend an hour online explaining that you are not racist when, in fact, your microagression screams otherwise. Did you see options A-G as “missiles” or did you just roll your eyes because you’re tired of hearing it and it doesn’t fit your definition of “universal”? Let us continue:
There is this handy tool called the dictionary! I know…shocker. So, the way it works is that you go to the first letter and then find the second letter and so on. When you arrive at “reparations”, it should read, “the making of amends for a wrong one has done, by paying money to or otherwise helping those who have been wronged”. What does someone like you choose to do? Focus on this part: “amends for a wrong one has done, by paying money” and say something like, “But yet blacks are owed payment now for slavery. Why?”. Comical. If there was even an ounce of unbiased moral intellect in you, it would be simple to understand that blacks are owed reparations simply because of options A through G and most definitely H. But more important is the fact that people who are truly not racist will understand this because they know that we don’t need to give them money! No…we need to make sure they are our equals in every sense of the way. I know you might think otherwise. It can be hard.
THEN you go on to magically interpret the verse she dedicated to the Beyhive as a call for aggression because…well…because of option H.
I could educate you further. I mean, I could spend HOURS talking about all the black history you have never read or researched about but I know you’re fuming right now because I called you out for the person you are. Just remember that you heard a song that praises a community, their history, and their values and lifts their voices in a time where they need it most and willingly chose to described it as: “disgusting, irresponsible, trash song from a putrid artist who promotes violence, division, and hate”. The song isn’t the problem. The problem, you dimwit, is option H.
Please DO respond. I can assure you that I won’t read it, but I’m sure others would love to see you continue to act a fool.
