Jay-Z Supports Slavery

I wonder if I piss off people at Def Jam when I write headlines like this. Whatever, I’m still waiting on my plaque for pushing KC to plat in a month.

From TMZ:

The Jiggaman was all smiles recently when the team announced that its new arena in Brooklyn, Jay-Z’s hometown, would be called the Barclays Center, after UK-based Barclays Bank, which is paying $400 million over 20 years for naming rights. But just after the January 18 announcement, local politicians and journalists quickly rang the alarm on the deal, criticizing the team and its majority owner, Bruce Ratner, for taking money from a bank whose founding family profited from its ownership of slaves in the 18th century and was involved in controversial dealings with the South African government in the 1980s.

    Yeah I think people are just throwing dirt on Jay some more. He’s a smart man I’ m pretty sure he did he’s research about them before everything with through. If you think about it though no major company past or present didn’t get to where they are without exploiting someone or something, many of them off the blood, sweat, years, and tears of minorities, no ones innocent and no one cares especially when there is scrilla to gain. All I can say is make you money while you can Jay to the ezzo, the past is done, time to change the future, we were kings and at the top once we can do it again. BP!!!!!

    Im not supporting this movement in any way possible, but first… most of the brothas of our era’s, aren’t educated enough about slavery….. Black people we’re selling black people.

    So it’s not all of the white man fault, theres a lot of racisim involve into that.

    jay-z went from a bitter to a slave owner, rediculous i just burnt all my jigga-boo albums. and last i heard rodney king wasn’t dead. mos def where you at speak on this………………….

    Fleet bank (named because of the fleets of ships of slaves they brought to the americas) is now Bank of America. Think about that those of you who have Bank of Ameria accounts.

    People who take Bayer aspirin… they supported slavery.

    I could list a whole list of companies that supported slavery. Instead of dissing Jay, who probably cannot turn down that amount of money thanks to the other owners of the Nets, we need to hold the companies responsible.

    That’s all.

    smooth tie by jay

  15. The Izod Bucket On… I’m So Old School « weapons of mass distraction Says:

    […] Lets hope the Nets score a lot of Izod buckets… for Jay’s sake. But if the New Jersey Nets arena is getting a name change, how long will it be for… considering the fact that someone already bought the rights to the Brooklyn Nets arena. […]
