I went to the Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul concert on Sunday here in Seattle. Towards the end of the concert Schoolboy performs the song "Blessed". When he is finished he points out that there are a lot of white people in the crowd (probably around 60-70% were white, which believe it or not is pretty low for a concert here) and that he noticed that during the chorus the white people would pause during part where he would say n***a.
He then proceeded to tell the crowd to repeat the word in with the chorus, to which some of the drunk white people near the stage proceeded to scream it with such joy that you would not believe. Where I was standing, no white people said it, hell no one repeated it.
What are the IC's thoughts on this? Are we moving into a new era in which race does no longer matter? Though Schoolboy is not too popular, would it change things if it were a more prominent artist that said such a thing?
