After Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski suggested that rap music is to blame for the University of Oklahoma SAE chapter’s racist chant, Rush Limbaugh has offered up his two cents on the matter.
Before we get to that, however, check out Mika’s rap music theory regarding the Oklahoma SAE video.
“If you look at every single song, I guess you call these, that he’s (Waka Flocka Flame) written, it’s a bunch of garbage. It’s full of N-words; it’s full of F-words. It’s wrong. And he shouldn’t be disgusted with them; he should be disgusted with himself.”
Mika’s co-hosts cosigned her theory, with Joe Scarborough adding:
“The kids that are buying hip hop or gangster rap, it’s a white audience, and they hear this over and over again. So, do they hear this at home? Well, chances are good, no. They heard a lot of this from guys like this (Waka Flocka Flame) who are now acting shocked.”
So, what did Rush have to say about all of this?
“If this had been a song by Kim Kardashian‘s husband, and they had sung this song at the Grammys, it’d be a hit. Can we agree with that?”
“I’m telling you, this stuff gets awards, and people that sing it are portrayed as American royalty in terms of celebrity. You can’t deny that.”
