So Nas is making some news this week, after leaking “Be a Nigger Too” to the internetz, he also made some disparaging remarks about Tiger Woods in a recent King interview. The back story is that Nas’s song from his last record “These Are Our Heroes”, which was a great song, takes some shots at Black celebs such as Tiger Woods, Taye Diggs and Cuba Gooding Jr. for marrying women that are white. He implicitly argues that they couldn’t find any good Black women, so had to settle for white women. Nas elaborated on this in the interview, here’s what he said,
Tiger Woods standing up for this white lady who said something about him being lynched is a coon move to me. God bless the brother. I like to see him doing his thing, but thatâ€™s a flaw in his character. Thatâ€™s an issue I would have with Tiger Woods; not who he is married to.
Now yes this is a known problem in the Black community that when a Black man attains financial success he will usually wife a non-Black women, usually of Latin decent or a chick whose like 1/4 Black, 1/4 Asian and 2/4 German. The only problem I have with Nas for making this argument is that this guy is married to Kelis whose half Chinese and Puerto Rican! Time for the “Hypo-the-crite” chant.
Now if are to assume you are not referring to non-Black women and that your criticism is directed at white women only, this wouldn’t make you a hypocrite, but just an idiot.
This whole argument reminds me of whenever I see Rastamans screaming “Bun the white man” and then wifing a fat ugly white girl with dreads.
Though they did say “Bun the white MAN“.
