Who exactly is racist?

And how would you even prove one of them is racist? We don't know any of these dudes personally. They make music (and may use an alter ego in the lyrics and talk about fictional stuff) and do a few interviews on TV. I don't think anyone can really judge any one off that.

And would it be more okay for a white person to listen to a racist white rock n roll artist?

The beats and the flow. I am all about rhythm. I have never really cared much what they have to say.

It's theatre, and these guys have a whole team of white people behind them.

As a white man I feel no hurt, pain or insult from minorities talking shit against white people.



Regarding Paris, who was a decent rapper, he actually raps in one of his songs about stop blaming white folk cuz it ain't their fault. I cannot remember the song, but he had a video for it so it must have been one of his 'hits'.

5 percenters is mainly just a name, not many actually practice the numerological or theological aspects, and no. Jus Allah is though (I think).

5% is an offshoot of the nation of Islam.. their founder was named clarence 13X

X becomes your last name when you reject your "slave" name.. Some NOI (and regular) Muslims simply change their full name to something else. Like cassius clay and Lew alcindor did

Maybe he is just anti-KKK, and therefore anti-racist.

But since Clarence 13X died, NGE has become less of an organized religious movement no? I remember LL Cool J saying his crew used to claim 5% but were just a bunch of kids and knew nothing of the teachings.

this is true, but it isnt just 5%ers.. but they know the teaching,,, they just don't follow them.. most black kids who claim conventional Islam or NOI Islam drink, smoke weed, beat their wives.. Alot of hypocrisy across many religions, including the Islamic faiths. The only thing most can sustain is abstinence for swine, and even then their women sneak and eat pork when the men arent around...

its just like any other religious group of people, they follow the rules they like and skirt around the rules they don't
