Thanks Slave Owners, Thanks Alot

I PERSONALLY never thought that i would see the day that a Black Man would thank slave owners, or give them a shout out for anything, I also never thought i would see a credible black man running for president. WELL GUESS WHAT both have finally come about. Recently your kid's favorite Clown artist, Soulja Boy who is notorious for his horrible Hit song "Crank That" was interviewed by B.E.T's own Toure'. When asked which historical figure from the past did he most hate, Soulja boy seemed as if he didn't understand what was being said to him. Toure' decided to help the young man out by naming people such as Hitler and Bin Laden, BUT when he mentioned slave masters Soulja Boy Replied "Shout out to the slave masters, without them we wouldn't be here"

I personally am NOT surprised by his lack of intelligence and portrayal of ignorance because His name is soulja Boy, He dropped out of school to do music with no meaning, and he probably didn't attend school long enough to read a black history book, or any book for that matter. Here's an Excerpt from Toure's Blog where he talks about the "shocking" interview:
Last week in Atlanta, I got to interview Soulja Boy Tell Em. I found out just how young he really is. He was one of about ten rappers I interviewed in one day for my BET show, The Black Carpet. I decided it'd be fun to give all the rappers part of the Proust questionnaire. I thought it'd be a way to get beyond image and into who they really are. Most of the guys gave good, thoughtful, intelligent, sensitive answers. I asked Juelz Santana, “How would you like to die?” He said, "Loved."

Then came Soulja Boy Tell Em. I asked him, “What historical figure do you most hate?” He was stumped. I said, "Others have said Hitler, bin Laden, the slave masters..." He said, "Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we'd still be in Africa."

My jaw, at this point, was on the ground."We wouldn't be here," he continued, having no idea how far in it he'd stepped, "to get this ice and tattoos."

Wow. Never mind that diamonds come from Africa. Never mind that there were many generations of pain in between leaving Africa and getting diamonds. Never mind that the long-term cataclysmic effects of subtracting about tens of millions of young, strong people from Africa over the course of a couple of centuries is a large part of the reason why Africa now appears so distasteful to you. Never mind all that, Soulja Boy. You put country first.

Thanks Toure' for pointing out that Diamonds come from Africa, and you should have pointed out that most of the resources that we get here in America are very much so accessible in Africa, Hell, Most of it is TAKEN from Africa and the Middle East.
