what if a chinese person tells a black guy he cant step on his side of the street because hes black? cant be racist because chinese people have been traditionally oppressed in history (railroads, chinese ban, etc) and do not have the power to be racist, right? oh then it is racist. oooh, okay. but i thought racism was only power + prejudice, so how can it be racist then? they don't have the power, I thought the whiteys did? wait they do in that _one_ instance? oh okay. see how when this concept of "reverse racism" for whites is applied in different scenarios with different races it doesn't really hold weight? curious how that is. it's almost like racism is purely the belief that one race is inferior to their own, regardless of color. "reverse" racism is not a thing, blacks are not the only ones who can be the target of racism. i guess its just whiteys who can't be scrutinized, even when they take land from the white farmers in africa for purely racist reasons and suprise suprise, it goes horribly for them. just learn to love each other and peace out people, dont try to justify racism. teach the other side by example, don't go eye for an eye. remember: its just as bad and transparent when a black dude try to justify racism as it is when a white guy does it. anyway, feel free to remove this comment to perfectly illustrate how powerful i am and my "message" is over you as a dirty cracker

Regarding Lil Peep: Mental illness generally (and depression specifically) doesn't always fit its textbook description. There are ups and downs, where you can be smiling one moment and suffocating in your own despair later on. However, those negative feelings are constantly creeping up to the surface. To say he enjoyed things one moment doesn't discredits his depression

Lets see here. Marian Webster - Racism: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race Dictionary.com - Racism: a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others. Google- Racism: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. Oxford Dictionary- Racism: The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. if you think you can't be racist because you're a certain race, you can get fucked you idiot racist

At first I used to think Joe was just salty at the young heads ... he's just mad intellectual and empathetic...cares about people man... it's hard caring about people man.. i feel his frustration at times
Conscious Vibrations (4 months ago)
Joe mad good points once again. Can also trell AK has Zero experience with addiction or clinical depression. people wear masks man... also my guess was the dude was sensitive and maybe saw some fucked shit in the industry other rappers put up with and it warped and twisted his already fragile mind. also, LETS GET SOME FEMININE THOUGHTS ON THESE TOPICS!!! I know she a little timid and shy, but come on girl, you're beautiful and be more confident in your opinions!
Conscious Vibrations (4 months ago)
Man it'd me amazing through Uzi getting clean he gets more positively spiritual and same with XXX. when I was hooked on dope darkness is all I really knew though about Xanax all that shit..getting clean , you either connect (and I don't do AA) to this cosmic stream of consciousness that connects us all in a beautiful way and learn it's much easier to go WITH the universe instead of AGANST it....life gets exponentially better let's get this Satanism out of the music industry and stop letting these corporate industries take control and use these kids as puppets man.

Reverse racism does not exist!!!! End of story. To answer your question Joe, if she of the age of and consented, it was ok. But the key thing is CONSENT! If they didn’t consent it’s a CRIME. I can already see once this really ripples through this industry their cognitive dissonance will be SKY HIGH.
Javan uHnah (4 months ago)
It's pretty obvious by now that Post Malone is a vulture. The only reason he's getting a pass is because he's a man at this point. If he was a woman he would have been dropped already.
Javan uHnah (3 months ago)
Whats your point? Cardi is not appropriating. Post is. The point is white men get more liberties than white women. Everyone ran Iggy Azalea out of town yet Post and that ugly white boy with rainbow dreads is let off the hook. *Because they are men*

Javan uHnah what you do realize the number one rap song of the year was made by a woman right or are we going to ignore that so you can have a point her name was cardi B the name of the song was bodak yellow

Nadeska did a terrible job at communicating the context of the post malone situation. Why did you think it was ok to gloss over his answer to the BLM question? It's one of the core reasons why he's being criticised.

Complex is absolutely right to say reverse racism is bullshit. It's just regular old racism Just because the abuse is at a white person for his SKIN COLOR, doesn't mean it gets it's own special definition, kind of like you know the whole "prejudice + power" definition of racism not being the definition of racism in every single dictionary of the english language. But what do i know, i'm just a guy who knows how to look up definitions.

Say that shit em. Mumble rap is TRASSSSHHHHHHHH!!!! spare me the issa vibe talk. Vibe is short for vibration....wtf type of low level wave are u on where the 3rd grade (or lower) vibrations that come from mumble rap is positive!?!?!?!? Where is the benefit in any and I do mean ANY AND ALL music on that low level???? Mumble rap is not the only genere but that is what my comment is directed towards. I can believe the real lyrical spitters are not just saying what this bullshit mumble rap.is and is doing do music as a whole. The vibes are low level, it's meant to dumb u down so if that is the so called vibration you are on, u must be happy staying in the basement. #period #nuffsaid

Racism was not started by white people. Also FUCK BLM. They aren't doing shit about shit and just serve to misinform, divide, and anger people. Whites are more likely to be killed by police than blacks. And black-on-white crime is almost entirely unreported on, even though black crime in general is pandemic. If BLM gave a shit about black people they would try to uplift their communities and speak out against black crime and promote education and the family unit, not call for open season on white people and play the perpetual victim.
