Shoutout to VI The Law for letting me know the existence of this video. By now it should be obvious that I’m a Joyner fan. If you missed his album 508-507-2209 you can check out the review I did. I’m Not Racist is an interesting title when you consider that the first thing you see is a white guy wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap. For those that do not know what it means, this was a phrase popularized by Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.
Recently (last week actually) Donald Trump strangely replied a seemingly racist remark that he had made with, yeah you guessed it, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. You can read that story here.
The video setting sees a white man and black man seated at a table. It’s almost set-up like a rap battle. The white guy goes on to say some blatantly racist things, which are his view of the black community. He says he’s not racist because some of his relatives are married to black people. This kind of reminded me of Get Out!.
It does not end there the black guy gets his own shot to lash at his views of white supremacy and culture appropriation (errrmmm) and also about white people
Mentioned by both interestingly is how Eminem dissed Donald Trump during the BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher and about 2Pac being a god. What up Trump?
How it ends, well you will have to watch for yourself.
