This is white privilege at its finest and she even said the N-word repeatedly.
When a normal person hears a song they don’t think their kids should be listening to they change the music and go about their day. But when a Christian mom of four heard such a song she obsessed with it enough to look up the lyrics and read them in a video for all to hear and then whined about it for 11 minutes straight.
Apparently, the woman turned the radio to a channel that was playing Norf Norf by Vince Staples, a rap song that like many other rap songs has a good amount of profanity, references to life on the streets, and yes, even the N-word.
The woman was shocked that a song like that would be played on the radio. Clearly, she has been trapped in a religious bubble for her entire life, and now her children will be as well as she vowed never to let her kids listen to that local music station ever again and then proceeded to lecture everyone about how the song is evil because it had bad words in it and talked about people being shot and running away from police. She seems to believe that the lyrics are influencing kids to turn to a life of gangs and anti-police attitudes.
So she proceeded to look up the lyrics and read them aloud to warn other smothering parents like herself to keep their kids in a bubble.
Here’s the video via YouTube.
This “Christian” woman who claims to be so concerned about kids hearing this song literally uttered every single profanity, including every N-word, and shared her video on the internet, which instantly attracted attention. Now kids are curious about the song and are listening to it. And guess what? They love it, which is why the video has over 9 million hits on YouTube.
Here’s the music video via YouTube. Warning: It’s explicit so if you don’t want your kids to hear it just don’t listen to it and definitely don’t repeat the lyrics while your kids are in earshot.
Of course, while “Christian” mom was busy not checking her white privilege, Fader Magazine was busy interviewing Vince Staples. As it turns out, Staples escaped the vicious cycle of gang violence and police brutality that plagues North Long Beach and his songs are used “to indict police brutality, civic apathy, gentrification, racial profiling, and the failed educational system.”
“He strips away the glorification of gangsta rap and reminds listeners that their entertainment doesn’t come without a body count and other brutal consequences,” Fader further explains.
In other words, his music is critical of the problems many young black people face in inner-city neighborhoods but is also critical of gangsta rap and the violence that surrounds it.
So really, “Christian” mom should have checked her privilege instead of whining about her kids listening to a song telling them about the world and the harsh realities that many Americans have to deal with every day. But “Christian” mom would rather her children pretend these are not real problems and that they should stay in a bubble and hide while ignoring what life is like for people with a different skin color.
