OK so if Wayne said it and the Till's replied, then thats the end of the story.

You don't have to GET LEGAL PREVENTIONS on wayne from saying what he wants to say. Radio stations are private entities so if they want to ban him, they can do so but there should not be anyone asking for his rights to be removed.




I'm not concerned with what goes through their heads. Its his choice of words, but it shouldn't be something that gets his freedom of expression banned.

You all are SO quick to talk about removing rights as if thats a "simple solution"

This should not go any further than an exchange of ideas. Once we start talking about what wayne "should be allowed to do" then you're infringing on the same rights that you want for yourself.
Wait....


Where the fukc did I tell you his corny metaphor should be legally censored?

ADL sure seemed to have no problem infringing upon Michael Jackson's 1st amendment right.
They can go there because they have power. They're united. Black people have no real voice or meaningful organization. Everyone is out for self. Example- the smart dumb n*ggas in this thread talkin freedom of speech like it had shyt to do with shyt.

Lets try something here.

How would you feel if Riff Raff said that line?

And how would the crackers, no disrespect, do Wayne if Emmett Till was a whiteboy k!lled by Black men?

That's a good example you know why....I don't know who the fu*k a Riff Raff is. So he could say whatever he wants to. I'm not listening to him so why do I care? Which was my point to all these wayne haters. If you don't like the music skip it. That dude aint hurting for your ears. And if Till was white k!lled by blacks it still would be just a lyric in a song and the industry would still have edited that part out, censorship.

1. What are "black" people? Jews have a more linked history and identity. Remember, not all black people are the same.

2. Organization does count so you do have a point.
Black people in America. Not the Haitans, Africans and Jamaicans and all the other shyt, they have their own movements and ain't too fond of American black people anyway for the most part.

I did not who Emmet Till was so I looked him up...

Emmett Louis Till (July 25, 1941 August 28, 1955) was an African-American boy who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman. Till was from Chicago, Illinois, visiting his relatives in the Mississippi Delta region when he spoke to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the married proprietor of a small grocery store. Several nights later, Bryant's husband Roy and his half-brother J. W. Milam arrived at Till's great-uncle's house where they took Till, transported him to a barn, beat him and gouged out one of his eyes, before shooting him through the head and disposing of his body in the Tallahatchie River, weighting it with a 70-pound (32 kg) cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire. His body was discovered and retrieved from the river three days later.

You say that, but you ignore all the inf!ghting that goes on.

I know tons of first/second generation blacks that don't like "american blacks"

We define ourselves by race. Everyone else has culture, rituals, and what not to distinguish themselves.
n*gga, where are you going with this shyt?! That was the point, there's no unity and organization. But damn, how much further left you tryna go away from the topic?

Yep, but Wayne is a rockstar so fukc it. He doesn't have to know or care about his history.

Joe Budden gave us a passage for just this sort of situation:

These fans is Star Jones
They'll know a n*gga a f*g but fukcs wit 'em anyway

The fu*k are you talking about I'm "in over my head" and I "can't use words."

Its like you got an A on your last exam and you think you know something now? Let me know when you've got at least ONE post-graduate degree.

Fall back little one.

You're arguing against yourself.

You can't talk about Wayne having the same right to express himself then say his voice isn't valid.

Thats THE DEFINITION of the notion of free speech.

Mind you, AGAIN,I think Wayne was stupid for what he did, but in no way would I ever want to be responsible for MAKING him do something.
There it is

You were goin off course with that other shyt, that is all it comes back to sir.

I think it's funny how people claim to not like hiphop and they claim to never listen to it, but somehow they always know what's going on in hiphop. And why is it that people call rappers stupid but when a rapper use a simile or metaphor or other literary techniques....it's a problem.

^^^^^ it's the way/reference the technique is used, nobody cares about rappers using similes and metaphors and sh*t, people applaud rappers for that, but when it's used in poor taste that's where the problem comes from

but yea this is not about freedom of speech, da fu*k is wrong with yall up in here. This is really about respect, wayne just spits a bunch of random metaphors and punchlines without any real thought or structure and it's caught up with him. Dudes that don't care simply don't know their history, and if they don't care to know their history, they've already failed themselves and this genre called "rap/hiphop" How low will you go to accept bullsh*t like this until you can't call it entertainment no more, fans gotta draw the line somewhere got dam

I don't get the freedom of speech argument. Lil' Wayne had a right to say it and people got a right to scorch his stupid a.ss for saying it. That's how it works.

He was 14.
Beaten to death because of a white woman

In the early morning hours—between 2:00 am and 3:30 am—on Sunday, August 28, 1955, Roy Bryant, Milam, and another man (who may have been black) drove to Mose Wright's house. Milam was armed with a pistol and a flashlight. He asked Wright if he had three boys in the house from Chicago. Till shared a bed with another cousin; there were eight people in the small two-bedroom cabin. Milam asked Wright to take them to "the n**ger who did the talking". When they asked Till if it was him, he replied, "Yeah", for which they threatened to shoot him and told him to get dressed. The men threatened to k!ll Wright if he reported what he had seen. Till's great-aunt offered the men money, but they did not respond. They put Till in the back of a pickup truck and drove to a barn at the Clint Shurden Plantation in Drew. Till was pistol-whipped and placed in the bed of the pickup truck again and covered with a tarpaulin. Throughout the course of the night, Bryant, Milam, and witnesses recall them being in several locations with Till. According to some witnesses, they took Till to a shed behind Milam's home in the nearby town of Glendora where they beat him again and tried to decide what to do. Witnesses recall between two and four white men and two and four black men who were either in or surrounding the pickup truck where Till was seated. Others passed by Milam's shed to the sounds of someone being beaten. Accounts differ as to when Till was shot; either in Milam's shed or by the Tallahatchie River. He was driven to Bryant's store where several people noticed blood pooling in the truck bed. Bryant explained he k!lled a deer, and in one instance showed the body to a black man who questioned him, saying "that's what happens to smart n**gers".

Three days after his abduction, Till's swollen and disfigured body was found by two boys fishing in the Tallahatchie River. His head was very badly damaged. He had been shot above the right ear, an eye was dislodged from the socket, there was evidence that he had been beaten on the back and the hips, and his body weighted to the fan blade, which was fastened around his neck with barbed wire. He was nud3, but wearing a silver ring with the initials "L. T." and "May 25, 1943" carved in it.

Well, what else could we do? He was hopeless. I'm no bully; I never hurt a n**ger in my life. I like n**gers—in their place—I know how to work 'em. But I just decided it was time a few people got put on notice. As long as I live and can do anything about it, n**gers are gonna stay in their place. N**gers ain't gonna vote where I live. If they did, they'd control the government. They ain't gonna go to school with my kids. And when a n**ger gets close to mentioning s3x with a white woman, he's tired o' livin'. I'm likely to k!ll him. Me and my folks fought for this country, and we got some rights. I stood there in that shed and listened to that n**ger throw that poison at me, and I just made up my mind. 'Chicago boy,' I said, 'I'm tired of 'em sending your kind down here to stir up trouble. Goddam you, I'm going to make an example of you—just so everybody can know how me and my folks stand.'

J. W. Milam, Look magazine, 1956

fu*k Lil Wayne.. im sick of this disrespectful mother fu*ker. He dont care about nobody but himself & money. I don't see how you kids idolize this guy. I mean I like some of his sh*t too but hes just getting worse musically and more arrogant personally. I don't mean to sound like a hater but him and dudes like him makes being a rapper not seem like a talent anymore. Word to Shaolin.

U know what.. im with Wade.. fu*k Lil' Wayne
