I wasn’t going to chime in on this whole Beyonce Super Bowl performance fiasco, but now I have to say something because these people are just pissing me off. And when I say these people I am referring to white America.
Beyonce performed at Super Bowl 50 in what some say was Black Panther attire, demonstrating symbolism for her people and black power. I don’t see what the issue was with the performance. She was being an artist, but at the same time she was trying to deliver a message, saying that enough is enough when it comes to the treatment of her people.
And because of this some of White America got upset. Come on let’s be honest here White America, you are mad because we are no longer putting up with your bull sh**. If she were there performing about sex and love it wouldn’t be an issue even if the kids were watching.
It’s the fact that Black People are standing up for their rights that is upsetting you. And let us talk about the newest member of the “Beyonce Rant” Ms. Tomi Lahren. She said that Beyonce is “just like President Obama, Jada, Al Sharpton and so many others just can’t let America Heal.” No Ms. Lahren we are trying to let America heal but people like you continue to show its true colors and so we can’t let her heal, because we are tired of the abuse.
She brings up Beyonce’ husband having sold drugs for fourteen years. And my response to that is “who cares!” Everybody that knows of Jay-Z’ history knows that he sold drugs, and look at where he is now. Lahren is upset that we are making sure that our voices be heard.
We are sick and tired of having to watch our backs every single day, wondering if our men, sons and daughters will make it home alive every day. I shouldn’t have to live in fear every day. Sometimes I wonder if it’s 1960’s all over again. You people never gave us a fair shot and we are not taking it anymore. You are giving us reason to show our claws and fight back. You are afraid of our retaliation and what we are capable of doing.
This issue is bigger than Beyonce, she was just an artist that used her talent to deliver a message. She is not the savior of the Black people. She is simply an artist, maybe she planned this and maybe she did not.
