Let’s get this straight from the gate. Australia was colonized by the British as a penal outpost (extra nullus). The most dastardly Britons were sent there to kill off the indigenous peoples. Now some two hundred years later we find that the country has forgotten their roots as the final destination for undesirables.
More than racism and supremacy, which this is certainly a product of, the fact that the Australian government is denying Snoop Dogg access to their country is blatant censorship. Snoop has had his difficulties repeatedly here in the states and he did have that one incident at Heathrow Airport, but no one was killed. Hell, shots weren’t even fired. So who do the Australians think they are for denying Snoop his right to enter their country?
Snoop is being denied his right to work freely in an open market. Let’s see how many freedom-loving capitalists chant ‘Free Snoop’ at the top of their lungs. If Snoop doesn’t work then he can’t buy uniforms for the Pop Warner team he coaches, and he certainly can’t afford those diamond studded dog leashes that he makes women wear. Dickies and Chuck Taylor’s can be found at any Salvation Army store so I’m sure Snoop will still be able to afford his wardrobe.
I wonder how many other rappers will come to stand alongside this blacklisted Black man? Do you think we’ll see a political movement of pop musicians like we saw when everybody refused to perform in Sun City, South Africa? Hell to the no. Rappers are your most cowardly and greedy animals. Some rapper is figuring that with Snoop’s inability to enter Australia their availability moved up the queue. Rappers might be the worst profession in the world when it comes to establishing solidarity for the preservation of someone else’s career. Okay, that’s not accurate, crackwhore is the worst profession is those regards, but rappers are a close second.
So now I’ve decided that I will boycott Australia until they return Snoop’s eligibility to enter the country. This means no more Snapple Kiwi-Strawberry drink for me. You know kiwis come from Australia? No more shark fin soup for me either, but in a pinch I will still enjoy barbeque baby fetus since that comes from Korea. Most of all I won’t watch any ‘Crocodile Hunter’ reruns. Let’s see who those television sponsors get to buy their microwave snacks now that I am no longer tuning in.
Free Snoop Dogg!
