    I’m a white dude.

    I don’t listen to any music besides hip hop.

    I have friends that are white, black, asian, indian, whatever. My girl is a minority.

    I’ve never been a part of any “establishment”, so I haven’t had any chance to exert any form of racism against anyone.

    Reading these comments, it makes me sick to think that one day, a black dude might take an opportunity to deny me of something (a job) because I’m white and I ‘have it coming to me’ because he ‘revels in the chance to return racism.’

    Right now… I smh at the people like this, just like I do when I hear my old relatives make racist remarks.

    ^ I understand your point of view and respect it. But understand that Blacks will always be the minority and we have to help one another at all cause. Denying you a job doesn’t mean that we have somethin’ against you in particular, it just means that we would rather reserve it for one of our own because we know the odds are against us. Besides, no one calls it racist when a Asian, Jew, Indian, or any other minority group hires their own and decides to keep the wealth within the confides of the family. Any white person who doesn’t take advantage of the monopoly that society has set up for them is a fool, because any other race would. Do you think I would get hired, a Black man, in a sneaker store in Japan? Chances are highly unlikely. Perhaps the scale is different if we’re referring to a more established business, say BET for example, who has made hundreds of millions in revenue and can “afford” to hire outside of the color spectrum since it isn’t gonna affect the establishment as a whole. Any major establishment that is owned/run by white people that hires Blacks have already acquired enough money in status in society that hiring Blacks (and meeting quota) isn’t gonna affect their business as whole.

    Minority scholarships are given to whites to attend HBCU’s all the time. Yet, I’ve never heard of Black man/woman getting accepted to a Ivy League school based on being a “minority”. And furthermore, our grades have to be far beyond excellent while the kids of rich white men are accepted without questioning (i.e. George Bush).

    You have to accept the fact that as long as we only make up a small percentage of this country, then we have to help one another to even reach minimal success and eventually become a force where we can stand on our own.

  10. DJ Premier - Remedy Interview at GRANDGOOD Says:

    […] Link (via) How did the Christina Aguilera project happen? We got a call from her office saying that she wanted to rock with us. She flew us out to LA to kick it, and when I chopped it up with her, she was like, “Yo, I love ‘Kick in the Door’ by Biggie, I love Group Home.” I was like, “Word? So, we’re gonna be aight. Let’s do it.” And her husband is a big, big hip-hop fan. He’s a DJ. So I’m sure he had a lot of influence on her, but she was totally with all of my ideas and she knew what she wanted. Every track that we laid down, she was like, “Keep recordin’.” I was supposed to just do one song, it turned into five. And I did the intro to the album. I was honored that she was like, “You’re gonna start the album with a dope intro.” There’s crazy scratching and everything, but not where it’s a hip-hop intro, it’s a Christina Aguilera intro. I kept it like what I do. It’s cool how it starts off because it goes into three different parts before she actually comes on to sing, and then it cuts off after one verse—boom—into another song. It’s dope. […]
