Rap Music does not give you license to use the n-word and the Morning Joe crew should know better

By now you have seen the SAE video of two young men leading the racist chant that everyone is talking about. The boys have been expelled and their fraternity has been closed. Now comes the dime store analysis that has been freely given on all the networks. The big question is why would they laughingly spew these vile lyrics. Who taught them? One of the boys said that he that alcohol fueled his behavior and some are blaming rap music, but is that fair? Yes rappers throw the n-word around like it is a hot potato but most thinking people don’t follow suit. Notice I did not say that color gives you license. It is a vile word, but it is no excuse. The Morning Joe crew tried to access blame to a rapper who has cancelled an upcoming concert at OU. It’s not his fault. We all have free speech, but there are consequences for that speech and the two newly expelled boys are responsible for their own situation.

    Whatever the reason, common sense did not prevail here. In this day and age, you have to assume that EVERY ‘performance’ is going to be video recorded, and end up on You Tube. Even private moments are subject to being shown, just ask Donald Sterling.

    These boys got off lucky. They’re still paying a high price, but they have gotten off lucky so far.
