Kill the white people!

“Black men walking with white girls on they arms. I be mad at ‘em, as if I know they moms. Told to go beyond the surface, a person’s a person. When we lessen our women, our condition seems to worsen.” – Common, who’s for the people

I would describe for you d-bags why Finding Forever is such a staggering artistic failure, but Noz the Cracker already said it better than I could. Plus, I already tried to the other day, and the force of so many Common apologists came down on me like the World Trade Center on the little Eichmanns of America’s global financial empire. It was tragic!

In particular, I couldn’t help but appreciate the argument put forth by so many of you fruits that my own review of the album couldn’t possibly be accurate, since I’d only listened to it once (actually three times) before I reviewed it. And yet you could all be certain that Finding Forever is one of the best albums of the year, if not evar, despite the fact that most of you couldn’t have possibly heard it any more times than I had at that point. Riiight.

But whatever. Who gives a shit about that album anyway? I may never listen to it again in its entirety. One thing I did find interesting about it though is that it highlighted something I’ve suspected for a long time, which is that Common hates white people. And I don’t mean “hate” in the sense that he holds them responsible for enslaving our ancestors for hundreds of years, and finds himself constantly in competition with them (and often failing) to make love to their women. No, obviously Common’s hatred of white people is much deeper and more bizarre than that.

In fact, I’m pretty sure I stumbled upon the source of Common’s barely disguised hatred for his mostly white audience, as evidenced by lines like, “When we perform, it’s mostly coffee shop chicks and white dudes,” from the Roots’ Things Fall Apart back in the late ’90s, and, “While white folks focus on dogs and yoga, my people on the low end trying to ball and get over,” from the new album, a few years ago while I was investigating a minor controversy having to do with some comments Common made in a magazine, about Rastas who date white women.

I never was able to locate the exact quote (I think it may have been from a magazine that’s only published in the UK), but the gist of it is that Common expressed his confusion and displeasure with regard to Rastas who date white women, which must be fairly common (no pun intended) over there, the idea being that it’s bad enough when a regular pink toe-obsessed excuse for a brother such as myself lusts after the white man’s most prized possession, but Rastas are supposed to be above that sort of thing, presumably based on how they dress.

Dredlocks, teh ghey-looking clothes, and b.o. = progressive, clearly. Dressing the way a grown-ass man is supposed to? Obviously not so much. At this point, I would draw some sort of correlation between the fact that Common tries to link the progressive nature of one’s views to their personal appearance and the fact that both him and Kanye Toodles failed to graduate from college, but then I’d run the risk of looking like a douche. Plus, you should see my bank account these days. That shit’s mad empty. And that’s what matters at the end of the day, right?

At any rate, some MCs no one ever heard of took exception to whatever his comment was and recorded a dis record called “Dear Common,” in which it’s revealed just how retarded some of Common’s views are. As it turns out, Rastafarianism doesn’t promote separating people on the basis of race the way Common does. In fact, many white women are actually rastafarians themselves, so you could, as a black guy, be dating a white chick who also happens to be a Rastafarian, though I’m not sure how desirable that would be, for other reasons…

In the days and days that I spent researching this story, because I’m dedicated like that, I came across some photographic evidence which I believe reveals the true source of Common’s obvious distaste for a good percentage of his own audience. When I pointed out a few years ago that Common’s obviously got some sort of thing against white people, a few people pointed out that Common is pretty light skinted himself and hence is probably the result of some hot miscegenation. Lo and behold, I stumbled upon a picture of Common posing with his mother, and damnit if she’s not whiter than half of the white people I know.

So you see, Common spends so much time these days lashing out at his own white audience because he realizes that he himself is part-white, and he fears he won’t be accepted by black people (was he ever?), unless he constantly goes about letting the world know that a white woman can’t do anything for him other than buy his albums and show up to his concerts. Which, if you think about it, is roughly tantamount to saying he hates his own mother.

Who’s the self-hater now?

    Bol:

    I think the people only argue about why the album is so good because of one reason. They dont “support” the music, but rather the artist and thus are blind to whether or not the music released is good. They will defend to their death the percieved quality of whatever it is despite it not being the truth in some cases.

    I havent heard the album myself but I am sure that it will be good, but because of the negative reviews I see, Im kind of wary to defend it. I’ll just have to see for myself

    IS COMMON REALLY HALF WHITE??

  • http://www.hobbyinthelobby.blogspot.com B. Ware tha Siniq

    On point.

    Actually he made a pretty messed up song for the soundtrack to the movie “White Boyz” as well. Which people dismissed as not really racist, because it was based on a movie script. Not that I really care… as a self-hating cracker I tend to enjoy that sort of thing (see “Nature of the Threat”), but yeah in general I’d say he has a hatred of self/fans. Oh, and the picture you saw of him and his mom… is it different then the cover of “One Day It’ll All Make Sense.”

    ha, the pic is on the cover of this third album cause you know when you hate your mom thats what you do, put her and you, when you were a baby, on the cover of an album, and i may be wrong on this but i think that album is dedicated to his moms, plus its true that white people do love dogs and yoga, think about it, and the coffee shop line, also can be but in the frame of, “im not hatin im just sayin” and when i met common dude was cool as hell to me, and i got white skin, but what can i say, bol did three days of research about this article and ive only been listening to common, meeting him at signings, and going to his shows for ten years, man i stuck up for common today, chi town holla at these fools noz and bol

  • The Spaniard

    I think his constant ‘I love the black queen and praise the sisters’ mantra seems to be overdone and a bit insincerce as well.

    I wonder if his (ahem) less than flattering statements about the white devils are due to the nature of song writing; where you have to compact a larger idea into a minimum amount of words.

    This would be a strike against his vocabulary and not any inherent racism.

    “Who’s the self-hater now?” Touché

    I haven’t had the pleasure, or misfortune, depending upon your perspective, of hearing his latest effort. I’ll have to reserve all judgment on critiquing it, until then. However, I’m of the opinion that “Be” was an instant classic… so, with him drawing from the same arsenal (Producers, and using the same creativity and thought-process) for his new album, I’m holding on to the opinion that it would be of the same caliber, and not a proverbial “shit-sandwich”, a term that you’ve used to describe many albums, as of late.

    As far as his alleged discrimination towards his Caucasian fan base is concerned, I think that he’d be foolish to alienate his audience in such a way. With record sales being as they are, he really can’t afford to have that discretion. Especially, after coming off of such a huge, critically and commercially acclaimed album, such as the aforementioned classic, “Be”. Even more so, if his Mother is, in fact, white. Although, stranger things have happened… so, who knows?

    And for the record, Bob Marley, who’s considered a legend in many circles, especially in Rastafarian communities, impregnated white women… repeatedly. So, with Common allegedly using the logic that Rasta’s discriminate against them (pink-toes) is ill-informed… at least in that case.

    At any rate, I’d personally like to hear things directly from Common’s perspective, and not that of a biased reporter (blogger), because we all know how the media skews opinions, misinterprets and even misconstrues information on a fairly consistent basis. All in the name of good journalism… er, story-telling, to increase readership and in turn, corporate sponsorship (read: Capitalism).

    I think I just heard TPAR’s head explode. Im starting to wonder if Bol is writing just to piss him off. Oh, well. The funny thing is that Common, Dead Prez, etc.etc. all say this “hate whitey” type of stuff, but I know a white Emcee that Dead Prez did 3 tracks with out in Portland. They definitely dont practice what they preach. But then again, most rappers don’t, so who gives a f*ck. If Rick Ross can rap about being the equivalent of Tony Montana, then these fools can pretend to be whitey haters, right??

  • NoMamesBuey

    Bol & Noz can be insightful & intelligent at times. However, these dudes are so ARROGANT on their rap album reviews.

    Anytime they hate on the album that the majority/consensus loves, they talk nonsense about the majority being “LCD” or morons.

    Anytime they love something the consensus hates, the cry the consensus are all “haters”.

    Could it be that either
    1 sometimes different smart people disagree on music
    -or
    2 Bol & Noz have horrible music taste?

    Note, these are the same douchebags are in fantasy land making ridic statements that their fav albums are “albums of the year”, when they are in fact meh at best or unwashed ass at worst.

    Bol: Says Diddy was top album of 2006. Says Gin Blossoms was the GOAT rock band.

    Noz: Says albums like Trae & Weezy Fa-go Goldberg were the album of the year.

  • fastcbr

    This is the most ridiculous pile of goat sh*t I have read. Yes common is more inclined to say a line here or there about being black and being proud as well as the movement, and things of that nature or things that might appear to be racist, however I don’t think he is racist…

    You are way off base here seeing that the picture of his mother is lighter than the average black person. Yes common’s mother’s family obviously has to have white (or whatever you want to call it) in her ancestry tree, therefore he is of a lighter complication and so is his mother. I don’t think she is white. Either way it doesn’t make a difference, and no one really cares.

    I will have to listen to the album to make any judgment as far as the new lyrics go, therefore I reserve my judgment.

A tragedy in my opinion. His entire output since dating her, including “Be,” which was sooo overrrated, has been sub-par.

  • LOL @ Common

    Great post, fuck Common.

    I have another story to this abortion of an artist:

    Years ago he was on tour in Germany. He went to the location but somehow the security guy did not know or recognize him, he thought he is just a bum who wants to sneak his way into the venue.

    So he refuses him entry and Common goes mad wild. I mean, not really wild, how would that work anyway…so, finally it gets into an altercation, but Common gets in the venue.

    After that he lashes out against Germany, Germans, how NAZI the country is, that it hates black people and the whole nine yards.

    When confronted that the security guy wasn’t even German (he was Albanian) he ignored it. What does it matter, you look like a complete idiot anyway.

    Because of that he should be banned from Germany, if you hate it so much, why go over and go on tour? Why go anywhere, why play in front of a mainly white crowd, if you don’t like them?

    Because THE MONEY is good, thats why THE MONEY is also good coming from GAP, this HYPOCRITE MOTHERFUCKER is an abomination of an artist.

    He is racist, straight up. That in itself is a bad thing but if you stay true to yourself, I could somehow respect that.
    The truth is though, if a white rapper or any kind of white individual would pull the same stunts this cocksucker pulled, the white guys career would be buried in a second. Common still gets his press and his his braindead hardcore fans that see something more in him than he really is.

    But if you insult your main audience but still dance to the tunes and take the money, you look like the dumbest fool on Mother Earth.

    I wish that his albums flops.

    One last thing…his high end hat line.

    He is talking about the ghetto and our problems…what good will it do, the high-priced hats?

    Who will buy these hats? Jamal from 125th ? NO it will be the white dentist from Park Avenue.

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    Common says that type of Black Pride shit becuz he is from where I am from, CHICAGO, and he it isn’t as Diversified or Librel as a New York or LA, even though we are a big City just like the two mentioned we are still a Sub-consciouslly Segeragated City. Blacks live on the South and West Sides, Whites and Others stay up North, Hype Park, Suburbs, it’s a Fact. So we in Chicago aren’t as Open to Interracial Relationships, racial harmony and different things along those lines like New Yorkers or Californians, thats not saying we don’t Like White People, but, it’s saying if u come to Chicago’s South and West Sides their aren’t as visually cemented in the community like other “Big” cities. We are taught here as African-Americans in Chicago to be “Pro-Black” so that comment that he stated about a “Rasta” with a “SnowBunny” is understandable here in Chicago in a Dominant Black Community. The Northside is the only place or Hype Park where u see a lotta of “Mixing” openly like that, and Other Big Cities like New York or LA lack a Dominant Black Community where we have a strong connection like Chicago, but, at the same time we here have a Chicago then a “Black Chicago”, you never heard of a “Black LA” or “Black NEW YORK”? Nope.

    Or where the doers of deeds could have done them better.
    The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena;
    Whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood;
    Who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again
    Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions
    And spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best,
    Knows in the end the triumph of high achievement;
    And who, at worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,
    So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
    Who know neither victory nor defeat.”
    – Theodore Roosevelt

    Bol…I see the bitch in you……jp, jp…..

    hmm…to take your theory seriously or not…that is the question…..

    hey…at least Common hasn’t sold out….maybe them movies are fucking with his rhyming or something…..

  • Fernando

    Anybody that takes album reviews from Bol seriously has problems. This guy has never had credibility. Although if he is seriously down on something, then it usually isnt that good. But anything he likes usually isnt that good either. You gotta find the albums that he says are so-so, and they are usually SICK (Devin, Redman, Sean P, etc.)

    But ever since I found out that he only likes ghey hipster white people rap(de la soul, tribe), and super teh ghey Rock (Blocc Party, Gin Blossoms, etc.), Bol gets no attention for his reviews from me.

  • Too Black For BET

    WOW. A couple of things. Yes Be is a classic. I’ve heard Finding Forever and its a good, sometimes hot record. Not as good as Be but still worth having. Say what you will about Common but at least his music his entertaining and culturally relevant, Instead of that wannabe white boy sh*t that dudes like Jeezy and wayne and 50 makes. sometimes you gotta do you regardless of record sales and regardless if ni**as under or overstand.

    There are many reasons not to like Common, his music and his flow ain’t all that. Seriously.

    That faux-consciousness schtick is all too thin. No, you don’t have to eat bean-pies and wear locks to be pro-black and intelligent, but Common’s I-get-a-pass-cuz-I-don’t-wear-my-pants-down-the-crack-of-my-ass-routine doesn’t fool those of us with third eye vision.

    Those who appreciate Mos-def really understand what a real conscious artist is. First and foremost someone who you would want to listen to. Second one who drops gems but does not condescend in his raps, a la Lupe Fiasco.

    Look how clearly he was outmatched in wit during those Hip-Hop forums on Oprah.

    Anybody who reads a Bol review would do well to take a listen for himself, but I kind of have a sneaky suspicion he might be right on this one, and by this one I mean the music not the man.

    Chicago, where’s your breakout MC’s!

  • KLETEWOOD

    DAMN BOL…I just clicked on your
    “You Tube” clip>>>

    What the fucks wrong with your neck? You are a weirdo.

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

    Wow, this dude has seriou issues. Bol is brainwashed. XXL should be ashamed. Common speaks truth and the enemies of my people don’t want them to hear truth. Why? Beacuse it will awaken their minds and spirits. They didn’t want that during the slaver days and they dont wont it now. The more thins change the more the stay the same.

  • Klassik

    “The People” is one of my favorite songs. I dont think Common is racist reasons are he has respect for Eminem, he has worked with Lily Allen, and he has worked with white people. If this is true though insulting your own mom I lost a lot of respect for Common.

  • ClickEmpty

    what’s getting lost here is that common says, “white people focus on dogs and yoga.” this is true and extremely annoying. what he leaves out though is that white people focus on white babies named tyler, madison, dakota, dylan, and zachary, as well as dogs and yoga, as well as maintaining a segregated school system in new york city.

  • Vicious Seiger

    I don’t know what to say about Common. The brother is gifted but he’s like so many people today – entrenched into their ways of thinking. I myself used to be offended by seeing white cats dating fine black women but one of my friends checked me on this. He made me think about how the guy was treating her and compared it to how so many black men now days treat women and it was no contest. The white dude treated her like she was a queen – doing all the things a man should do for a woman. It’s like my boy was saying – long as the person you love is loving you right that’s all that matters. I’m hoping Common can see the truth in that little Gem of knowledge.

  • http://N/A Ayigansta

    I’ve been reading the quotes that sparked the racist accusation towards Common, I’m on my 3rd day doing this but I still can’t find them.( apart from the supidity about interracial dating )

    One thing for sure SAM-BOL will get his doggy treats for licking the master’s “wounds” so zealously.
    Goog Doooog. Good Boye.

  • chi-town

    Who hired this dude, are you sick did you know that Chicago is the most divide city’s in the country. have you ever been to Chicago, if you talk to any Chicago MC they have a distaste for white people and you wounder why. OOOO you that black dude that when you was around white folks you said that slavery was “Economic” and when you was around black folks you said “it was wrong and we should do something about it”. You a joke!!!!! I bet yo girl white or black with perm down hair and a body size of a 12 year old boy.

    Racial polarity is fucking lame at any level. It shows how programmed you are. Is society fucked up and racist? A big fat YES. Why be a piece of shit and jump on that band wagon too? Anyone preaching hatred for something as shallow as skin color is a fucking retard and should eliminate themselves from their respective gene pool because you’re a waste of humanity. How the fuck is this shit still going on? Because people don’t use their brains and judge people based on their MERITS. Common sucks anyway, fake ass nigga
