Social media has been in a spiral in the past couple of days over a controversial broadcast by Laura Ingraham. A woman notorious for slandering black people on her show. She slanders almost everybody as a matter of fact. However this is an all time low.
The highly educated woman proceeded to attack not only Nipsey Hussle but also his credibility after his unfortunate demise by playing a clip of a song he was featured in. Claiming that the song was his. The song in question was the YG song F–k Donald Trump.
“OK, that’s a very creative refrain,” Ingraham said. “The chorus that goes on and on, is that related to lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African-Americans?”
Ingraham states while laughing at the songs contents.
What does any of this have to do with the Death of Hussle?
Or the fact that he was a positive influence in his community.
This is just an example of how we’re viewed in many circles around the country. Ingraham has been notorious for such inconsiderate comments as she attacked NBA players for their views on The current President Donald Trump
” shut up and Dribble” was the notorious line she had for Lebron James. Another influential black male who’s stepped out of the paradigm of just being an athlete.
Back to the recent events
This is potentially the most inconsiderate thing spewed from This woman and that’s saying something.
Not only that, it was belligerent, misinformed, and directed towards someone who didn’t deserve that type of response.
On top of that I believe she mentioned that African Americans were at their highest unemployment rate,
Which is inaccurate and also had nothing to do with the subject.
This is the unfunny commentary that is allowed in our nation. The petty unemphatic rhetoric that is allowed.
How do you sleep at night knowing you verbally attacked a dead man?
This is the type of person she is and always has been and its time we denied her her access to this platform. Many rappers such as The Game, Snoop Dogg, and TI have taken the helm to petition her removal from TV. TV personality Charlemagne Tha God gave Ingraham the Donkey of the Day for her commentary.
This is the reflection of this country, especially conservative news reporters on FOX news. This is nothing new. However this is a reminder of how low people will stoop to show how they devalue underrepresented. To degrade someone who was murdered by gun violence is nothing but a reflection of how Even highly acclaimed news reported can say however they feel.
As Charlemagne discussed in the video above, empathy is lacked from that center of the world. And it is nothing to be surprised about.
