“Rapper Q-Tip Slams Kanye for Wearing the Confederate Flag”

Kanye has been in plenty of hot water this week;  Al Sharpton and his Label mate Q-Tip are heated by his blatant disrespect of him wearing The Confederate Flag on his sleeve, which is a symbol which is considered a very painful memory to many African Americans.

Kanye was asked why he is trying to promote something that has been attached to slavery and oppression of African Americans, West said he was actually trying appropriate and change the meaning. But in the end, he just thinks it looks dope:“React how you want. Any energy you got is good energy. You know the confederate flag represented slavery in a way — that’s my abstract take on what I know about it. So I made the song ‘New Slaves.’ So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It’s my flag now. Now what are you going to do?

Q-Tip who is affiliated with the G.O.O.D Music camp, nonetheless spoke out about Kanye using the flag, voicing his disapproval. The veteran rapper took to Twitter express his opinion on ‘Ye’s latest fashion endeavor.

“Fuck the Confederate flag,” Tip said, adding “I love Kanye, No shots, but my people continue to suffer psychologically from hardships that happened under that banner.”

    The Confederate Flag Should Be As Offensive As The Word “Nigga”. With That Being Said, People Who Believe The Word “Nigga”, And All That Is Affiliated With It, Can Be Used In A Vacuum Are Delusional. Slavery Is Our History And Shouldn’t Be Looked At As Past Times Which Is What Is Going To Happen And Has Already Happened To A Certain Extent With Today’s Youth. Simply, Neither That Word “Nigga” Or The Confederate Flag Can Ever Be Used Exclusively For African Americans. The Disregard And Disrespect Escapes The Honor It Deserves. Honor Simply Means Being Thoughtful And Considerate Of. Finally, We Can Learn And Honor What Not To Do As Well As What To Do! God Bless!
