Ice Cube Criticized For Sharing Alleged “Anti-Semitic” Memes On Twitter

Ice Cube has always walked the thin line of controversy when it came to the jewish community, but a recent series of tweets has the Hip Hop living legend on the receiving end of criticism of what is once again perceived as anti-semitic ideas.

Ice Cube, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, sent out five tweets yesterday to his more than 5 million followers , three of which included a Black Cube, which he captioned in one of the tweets, “Black Cube of Saturn”.

Critics immediately called the actor and director of the timeless Friday series’ tweets “anti-semitic”, with some even questioning as to whether or not Cube’s account had been hacked.

The original N.W.A. defector vehemently stood behind his posts, stating, “This is CUBE. My account has not been hacked. I speak for no organization,” he tweeted. “I only speak for the meek people of the earth. We will not expect crumbles from your table. We have to power of almighty God backing us all over the earth. NO MORE TALKING. Repent.” 

Cube’s sophomore album Death Certificate, which featured the late Nation Of Islam and Black Panther Party leader Khalid Abdul Muhammad, drew a lot of criticism for what is recognized as anti-Semitic overtones, especially with the reference to Jerry Heller on N.W.A. diss “No Vaseline”, saying, “Cause you let a Jew break up my crew..”

Dear Terry Crews, “Black Supremacy” is Not The By-Product of a Post-White Supremacy Society

This morning, actor Terry Crews was trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons. The America’s Got Talent host was on Twitter Sunday night.

Apparently, Terry was feeling some type of way with all the solidarity happening with folks of color across the globe. He felt the need to take to Twitter to express an unwanted and guilt-laden perspective.

Upon later explanation by Crews, 51, he was trying to say that if white and black people don’t work together, “bad attitudes and resentments can create a dangerous self-righteousness.”

Following the death of George Floyd on May 25, Crews shared an emotional video to Instagram. There he told his followers that he saw himself in the 46-year-old, who died when former police officer Derek Chauvin put a knee on his neck for eight minutes.

“First of all my heart is broken,” he said the video. “George Floyd looks like me. George Floyd could be me. I could easily, easily be that man on the ground with that police officer’s knee on my neck. That could easily be me.”

Pro-Black Is Not Anti-White

There is a popular misconception that being proud to be Black means that you are anti-white. This is not the case.

However, what that statement reflects is a truly enslaved mentality because you cannot operate with that suspicion unless you are co-opted by white supremacy.

White guilt is defined as the feelings of shame and remorse some white people experience when they recognize the legacy of racism and racial injustice and perceive the ways they have benefited from it.

With his statement, Terry Crews is signaling that he has internalized white guilt for white people even though he is not white himself. All one needs to do is look at the front lines of every protest across the globe and white allies are there.

Allies who see their privilege as an invaluable asset to people of color are appreciated by the protest movement. Whether that involvement stems from guilt is a personal motivation, however, the action is needed and respected.

For Crews to create some mythological vacuum where black people are working in a silo for justice is not even close to reality. How he could justify fearing “black supremacy” when the protests are only initial surface pressure shows he doesn’t understand the true goal: system reform.

Feelings on either side will have to subside to doing what is right and if an ego or two is bruised in the process it is a small fee to pay for justice.

Terry Crews is still caught up in the rapture of Black unity optics in a society still encapsulated in white supremacy. If he wasn’t, he would count the white allies in a sea of black faces instead of lamenting how Black the movement looks and feels.

Remember The Morning Rhymes Of Hip-Hop Harry? Black Twitter Does

This morning, Hip Hop Harry was the trending on Twitter because he’s awesome.

Take a step back in time before responsibilities and MSG began to slow us all down. When Cream of Wheat, Farina, and oatmeal were Nana’s specialty and you had to have it piping hot in the morning.

Then like DM’s, slide Hip Hop Harry right in.

Hip Hop Harry was a children’s television show that aired on Discovery Kids and TLC. It was part of the ‘Ready Set Learn’ segment in 2006 to 2008.

For many of us, it was similar to Barney & Friends, Sesame Street, etc. as a live-action program. Using age-appropriate hip hop music and dance to teach social, educational, physical and creative skills, Hip Hop Harry raised the babies.

Consider him the lower cusp millennials’ first hip hop experience. Hip Hop Harry was one of the first edutainment platforms for the culture. He created a positive tone for learning and memorization.

With the proliferation of hip hop throughout the global culture, it was a breath of fresh air to see it starts even at early learning. Hip Hop is the preferred conduit of creative communication for the world.

Hip Hop Harry was the ambassador of that movement for the world’s youth.

You better recognize.

Meek Mill Goes in on Tekashi 6ix9ine For Being a Snitch, 6ix9ine Responds

Meek Mill took some time on Friday to address his feelings on Tekashi 6ix9ine who is dropping new music and planned to go on Instagram Live.

Meek’s Tweetstorm went after the “Gummo” rapper for being a snitch and trolling on social media invoking Nipsey Hussle’s name in the process.

“I hope that rat going live to apologize to the people he told on or the victim,” Meek said on Twitter. “Y’all forgot that fast a ‘rat’ killed Nipsey. He wasn’t suppose to be on the streets! That’s the only thing ima day (sic) because he’s dead… left his baby mom and child like a coward as targets!”

6ix9ine clapped back in a Shade Room comment saying “Imagine having a new born baby come into the world & be pressed about a Mexican with rainbow hair.”

Meek continued his tweetstorm calling 6ix9ine’s new song that he’s dropping today trash. The rapper turned federal informant is making his first social media appearance on Friday to promote his new music and possibly address the last year and a half of being labeled imprisoned and labeled a snitch.

Twitter Explodes Over Who Takes Battle Between Killmonger and Loki

Let’s face it, we are all nerds if we know the names Killmonger and Loki. The members of the Marvel universe are cemented in our brains for their nefariousness and abilities.

However, Twitter being the ripe playground it is for the mess, began imagining a world where the two face each other.

With Killmonger the human nemesis to the Black Panther and Loki the God nemesis to Thor, the internets let its imagination run wild.

Erik Killmonger is a super villain appearing in Marvel comic books. The character first appeared in Jungle Action vol. 2, #6 released in September 1973. Killmonger’s birth name is N’Jadaka and he is an enemy of Black Panther. Michael B. Jordan portrayed the character in the 2018 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Black Panther.

Loki is a god in Norse mythology and appears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a antihero and villain. He consistently comes into conflict with the superhero Thor, his adopted brother and archenemy.

Undoubtedly, due to his celestial powers, Loki thrashes Killmonger but not before getting broken off by a militant Killmonger.

Twitter showing that weekends really are for revisiting your youth again.

Rihanna Joins Forces With Twitter CEO to Donate $4.2M to Domestic Violence Victims

Rihanna has built a reputation for being a humanitarian and philanthropist on top of the list of things that she does. So it’s no surprise that she’s stepping up to the plate during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The singer’s Clara Lionel Foundation joined forces with Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, to donate $4.2 million to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles to help domestic abuse victims in the city.

The money will go towards housing, meals, and counseling for 90 victims a week for a total of 20 weeks.

The donation comes after reports say domestic violence claims are on the rise ever since Los Angeles enforced the stay-at-home order. At least 90 people are being turned down from domestic violence shelters weekly.

Rihanna and Dorsey have both made previous donations in addition to this generous one. Riri’s foundation donated $5 million to Direct Relief, Feeding America, the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, and other organizations fighting COVID-19.

She also matched $1 million dollars with JAY-Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation, and sent a ventilator to her father in Barbados who tested positive for the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Dorsey pledged 28% of his equity, which values at $1 billion, towards the coronavirus relief effort.
