meek mill didnt "basically" say anything like the threadstarter made it seem.
he said exactly what he said.
Low key, I think it's pushed to make a black person talking about the violence in our cities at the hands of our own. A taboo thing to talk about. Like, people are in such a rush to disown anyone that speaks on the crime in our cities by the hands of our own race is an issue much larger than cops killing blacks
Moralisticly cops killing blacks is a much larger issue seeing as they are sworn to serve and protect and they bastardize their main purpose into a power trip.
But on some societal shit, crime in the inner city is a much greater issue. And has much longer standing consequences. Because it's such a strong thing, people do what people do. Attack the thing that's deemed less of a challenge. Or what is deeemed by most as the safe righteous fight.
You can think of the most loved celeberity like Beyoncé. As loved as she is and her fans ride for her heavy. If she Eva spoke on crime in Chicago in a way that it doesn't fully place blame on the government. Her career would be over, her own hive would disown her. Bet that
If you dont belive nor want to be in an monogamous relationship dont get into one.
I am in total agreement with you there, my point was more about society making it seem like 1. That's the only way to be in a committed relationship and that 2. Being a male who is fulfilling your biological imperatives makes you a bad person
It's not supposed to be the same. Beyonce doesn't sound like Jill Scott, Jill Scott don't sound like Jazmine Sullivan, Jazmine Sullivan doesn't sound like India Arie, India Arie don't sound like Erykah Badu, etc. Unlike those singers who, let's be honest, don't have the versatility she does, she doesn't only have to make one type of music. A couple of them tried and failed miserably.
If all you can throw at her is that she ain't doing it like everybody else as if that's a strike against her, that's your problem. Not hers. And your bias doesn't negate her versatility.
I'm not a Stan for anybody but it's funny to me when people look at a duck looking walking and quacking like a duck and swear up and down its a chicken.
Slow your caping down man. I'm not downing Beyonce. I just don't think she would be a good Soul singer. Nobody said she has to sing just like Jill Scott. That wasn't the point and you know that. I pointed out that Soul music doesn't sound like Pop R&B. That's why they are considered two different genres. Beyonce sang the song, the way she sings all of her ballads, which was just fine from an R&B standpoint. It didn't sound soulful like Jill Scott's rendition. That's the point. A ER doctor is probably more versatile than a neurologist. That doesn't mean an ER doctor would make a good neurologist.
