Rush Limbaugh Says if Kanye West Performed Racist SAE Chant at the Grammys it Would be a Hit Song
This is unfortunate.
During his radio show Wednesday (March 11), Rush Limbaugh said that he thinks if Kanye West (he referred to 'Ye as Kim Kardashian's husband) performed the racist chant sang by members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon of University of Oklahoma at the Grammys, it would be a hit song. Limbaugh appeared to be defending the claims from MSNBC's Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough who suggested that rap music and it's frequent use of the n-word is to blamed for SAE's actions. "This stuff gets awards and the people who sing it are portrayed as American Royalty. You can't deny that," said Limbaugh. C'mon son. Since the Morning Joe episode, Twitter responded with the viral hashtag #RapAlbumsThatCausedSlavery, poking fun at the hosts' moronic claims.
A video was posted on Twitter Sunday evening (March 8) of Sigma Alpha Epsilon brothers singing the chant about never letting black people pledge their fraternity. Waka Flocka Flame was scheduled to perform with SAE at the university, but cancelled his show after seeing the video. He went on CNN and explained how disgusted and hurt he was to see the true natures of the students he thought he was his friends.
