After this performance, maybe Lamar’s white fans will seek entertainment somewhere else.
In American society, it is widely acknowledged that white people should not say the n-word. Nor should they rap it. Nor should they rap it on stage at a Kendrick Lamar performance in front of thousands of people.
For the record, the author of this despicable article is a pasty, self-hating white woman.
One white-appearing woman, identified in a video as “Delaney,” learned that lesson the very public way at Alabama’s Hangout Festival on Sunday. Lamar invited Delaney onstage during his song “M.A.A.D. City,” which chronicles the rapper and recent Pulitzer Prize winner’s experiences growing up in Compton.
The song contains 15 instances of the slang word “n—a,” three of which Delaney rapped with abandon. Until the music stopped halfway through the song. The packed crowd can be heard booing and cursing at the woman.
“You got to bleep one single word,” Lamar said.
So let me get this straight; Kendrick Lamar pens a rap song with fifteen instances of the word “nigga,” invites a white woman on stage to sing it with him, then stops the show when she actually says “nigga?”
So these are the new rules. I wonder if Lamar and all his entertainment friends will feel the same way if white women suddenly stood up and said, “We’re not going to date you anymore?”
