I don't even know where to start with this. You acknowledge that African Americans will fight other African Americans when it comes to trying to uplift the community, but you somehow believe that the Africans will welcome with open arms when they we try to do the same thing with their continent, a continent we haven't had any real connection to for centuries.
And yes, I know that Asians and Euros aren't trying to build up the continent. That's not their role. They're trying to do what's best for their countries. That said, like with any partnership, if the business is done right, it can benefit both parties. It's on the African leadership to make the best decisions for their countries. So you trying to pain the Asian/Euro connections as parasitic is silly. And it still belies the fact that positive partnerships with them could still do a hell of a lot more than the paltry by comparison African American connection that you're pushing.
Because of systematic racism bruh. A lot of us are mentally fucked up because of it. And Africans will come with open arms because they don't deal with systematic racism and because of the connections I described in my last post. The people leading the movement will more than likely have some kind of family connection with the continent to maximize efficiency.
Fuck all those other countries trying to take advantage of Africa. We all saw how that turned out in the past, and their interactions with Africa in the current will turn out no different. Black people would be trying to create businesses and villages that will return the wealth back to the continent vs. those imperialists trying to drain the continent of its resources.
They've been mostly black but there has always been acts that deserved it getting snubbed. I like Naughty but they won rap album of the year over Me Against The World. No Way Out over Wu Tang Forever, Will Smith over Jay Z. Since 99 how often has a rapper that truly deserve it won it? Kanye in 05? That's my point.The Grammys aren't irrelevant it's the biggest award in music. We just want guys that represent our genre getting their due credit. But the artists that represent our culture rarely ever get rewarded, so we don't care.
To be fair besides Eminem and for the first time this year Macklemore
Every other Grammy winner for Hip Hop awards have been black rappers a lotta black rappers have won grammys
