'Beyoncé and Jay-Z have turned their backs on social responsibility': Harry Belafonte says couple don't do enough for minorities in Hollywood


[pic - click to view]




Harry Belafonte has blasted Beyoncé and Jay-Z in a new interview, accusing the couple of 'turning their back on social responsibility'.

The American singer and activist told The Hollywood Reporter that the celebrity pair haven't done enough for minorities in Hollywood.

Belafonte even told the publication that he thinks Bruce Springsteen does more than Beyoncé and Jay-Z have ever done.


Asked if he is 'happy with the image of members of minorities in Hollywood today', Belafonte replied: 'Not at all. They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking. "We are not determinated. We are not driven by some technology that says you can k!ll Afghans, the Iraqis or the Spanish. It is all -- excuse my French -- s**t. It is sad.


'And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility.

'That goes for Jay-Z and Beyoncé, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black.'

Belafonte also used the interview to voice his political opinion. Asked if he would want to see Mitt Romney take over from Obama as the President of the United States, Belafonte replied sarcastically: 'Only if I would like to see the end of civilization. No, absolutely not. Mitt Romney is not my cup of tea at all.'

On a scale to 1/100, giving you a scolarship would do nothing for Jays profile

Bey and Jay only do things which help their profile and put them on a pedestal, they are attention seekers.

They rather help some africans or white people because it will get them a UN award. You get nothing helping African Americans minus a pat on a back ..

I dont blame them, just bc they are celebs & ppl of power doesnt mean they should help people out... lets face it, Bey has prob helped half the teenagers in America understand their own relationship problems

Jay on the other hand...... well... he has helped inspire & guide tax free careers

Harry is from a different era, he done seen black folk hanged from trees and lynched, he was one of MLK's best hommies, he rode with him to civil rights movement, he got hollywood to take notice of MLK, introduced him to Brando and other major hollywood celebs and went to the white house with him, attended meetings, sat right in front on MLK's coffin at his funeral...the man put in work for future black folk so they could be taken a little more serious. He still is a major activist

I guess he expects more from powerful black people

hes right though, we have no real black leaders because all we look up to are entertainers who dont give a sh*t about anyone but themselves. we so individualistic now...

but besides making the next new tech or innovative product.

the only way to get to their tax bracket is by doing some cut throat business and stepping on ppl.

i love hovs music just as much as the next, but his music isnt what got em where he is today, its his understanding of good business techniques...one of the number one rules to aquire that amount of money in one life time is GREED

I arrived on the day Fred Hampton died
Real n*ggas just multiply
And they say by 21 I was supposed to die
So I’m out here celebratin’ my post demise
If you put crabs in a barrel to insure your survival
You gon’ end up pulling down n*ggas that look just like you

That's fu*ked up fam.

Fred Hamptons fam were mad at jigga too. Then you had Syl Johnson who had a beef, now Harry Belafonte. Not to mention his former friends and artist. Jay Z may come off as a crab a.ss n*gga but the boy can rap.

I think there are really pro-black that think black people will come altogether one day but I don't believe in that I love my people but at the same time I know everybody aint my brother.

So I feel that as long as you help somebody better they life then that is enough.

You can't save everybody.

African Americans don't need the same help as Poor Africans or other poor people, in this day and age. People in those countries aren't born with the opportunity to be successful

Belafonte is from a time where (for the most part) black people didn't have the opportunity to be as successful as other races, no matter how hard they worked. Things have changed over the past 50 years.

I can see why Jay and Bey would prefer to give to 3rd world countries.

The odds are ALMOST even for African Americans in the us


African Americans have the ability to be whatever they want. All you have to do is:

1) Stay in school, study hard and make the grades.

2) Don't get pregnant

3) Stay away from crime and drugs and the wrong crowd.


But a lot of African American aren't doing what is within their power to become successful.

i agree to an extent we do have a lot more opportunity now than then, but you do realize that there are systems in place to keep us down still to this day.

1. increasingly poorer education in low income neighborhoods
2. racial profiling and discrimination on jobs, loans etc.
3. all true black leaders, with a real voice are a.ssasinated i.e. martin, malcom, huey, tupac
