Fox Boogie Adds Some Points To Her Hardbody Score…
Sad to say it, but some people need to be institutionalized. Some folks need the supervision, the discipline, and the loss of their personal freedoms, in order to become respectable, considerate citizens. Foxy Brown appears to be one of those people. You would imagine that someone who was given the gift of superstardom might have an idea of what life as a regular person entails, especially since that was her background. Instead I see Foxy Brown display a sense of entitlement and privilege that I’m only used to seeing with White folks. Not white with the little ‘w’, (i.e., the white that read this website), but white with the big ‘W’.
Only George Bush’s daughters can get away with the irresponsible shit that Foxy has been pulling. You see that shit even caught up to Paris Hilton finally. The only two Black women in America that can run some gangsta bullshit are Oprah Winfrey and Condoleeza Rice. Foxy Brown is far away from these two broads, but the question I have is why has it taken so long for the courts to put the smack down on this chick. Foxy could have hurt someone in her present bi-polar condition. She could have had a car accident, or an errant telecom device hurled from a moving vehicle could have smacked someone, even her killer weave could choke a bitch.
So now Foxy Brown gets a taxpayer sponsored timeout. I’m not mad if Foxy Brown comes home with the same determination that baseball player had after he went to prison. Dude used his criminal background to lead the league in stolen bases the following season. Eventually he resorted to robbing liquor stores again. Some people are just not built for rehabilitation. Look at Lindsay Lohan. She had a chance to become one of those white folks that gets to upgrade to a large ‘W’, but she can’t handle the pressure. Back to a small ‘w’ for her. Some would argue that even a small ‘w’ is better for you in America than being Black, and if you catch me on the right day I won’t even argue with you.
Here we are in the new millennium, 2007 to be exact, and there are parts of America that still exist in the vacuum of the segregationist south circa 1957. In Jena Louisiana, the ramparts of Reconstruction have still not been dismantled. Six teenagers are facing decades of imprisonment for defending themselves and opposing supremacy. The story isn’t that simple, but it is that real. If you haven’t read the story of the Jena 6 then take your time with this.
If you want to show how Hip-Hop you really are you should take some action with regard to this obvious struggle for equality and equal protection under the law. Submit your name if you are hardbody, you can even put in a fake one too if you are a coward. This shit here gives the Vote Or Die campaign some real meaning. I mean, even the rappers from Louisiana that were known for putting out mixtape singles regularly are too cowardly to weigh in on this story. Maybe their working on another song about their favorite pills? Don’t be a coward, be an iNternets Celebrity. Be Hip-Hop.
