    I doubt this decision had anything righteous to do with it. #barneys

    Yeah I didn't feel Jay for that one. I kept an eye on him ever since.

    I think it could be a missed opportunity

    This is their logic in getting black celebrities to go meet Trump after he got elected.

    🤬 that.

    Except there is.

    So when Jay agrees to do it, but they manipulate his performance to be some passive 'America loving 🤬 ' 🤬 , it'll be an obvious set up and people like you will be silent.

    The only opportunity is the opportunity to be played

    I don't think that's what he meant. He'd be Givin a platform(ala the Olympics in '68) to make a statment. Since you know, it is the most watched single event in the world.

    Fast forward to present time................



    The top black athlete (LeBron James) and the top black entertainer(s) (Jay Z and Beyonce) have gone out of their way to bring attention to black issues, yet posters on a "black" hip hop message board are critical of that.

    Unbelievable.

    Personal feelings to a celebrity will all ways cloud people's judgement

    Does the Superbowl have a major audience outside the states? I mean is it bigger than the champions league globally?

    FOH, Michael Jackson was bringing awareness to the plight and suffering in Africa before any other celebrities. Dude basically reshaped how black men were looked at world-wide. And you giving Jay and Bey props for what exactly? Jay don't even help people on his own damn labels.

    While Jay was telling the youth to spend their money on frivolous material 🤬 95% of his career, MJ has always been on another tip. And Bey...lol. What has Black Britney ever really spoken about?

    If hockey game came to London there would be plenty of people there from all over with knowledge of the game doesn't mean there a huge following. My point is there 0 comparison between the sports globally it's an American thing Vs the world thing.

    Like is there a league that's not in America?

    Funny thing is that in most American sports the 'winners' are still considered World Champions
