Tomi Lahren, an obvious conservative, spoke her thoughts on the ongoing conversation revolving around Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance. And by ongoing, it’s sparked quite the debate amongst people with regard to race and apparent anti-cop feelings from her video. Miss Lahren gives me a little bit of a unintelligent vibe with this so-called rant. Maybe more than a little.
For some reason, Lahren found it in her heart to proclaim Beyonce’s heartfelt message and turn into something ugly and could not be further from the truth. I must have been out of the office the day the memo was passed to say the “Black Lives Matter” was missing the additional word, more. The movement isn’t new because racism and police brutality has been happening for years. The main difference between then and now would be the presence of social media and the cameras are catching more of the incidents. So no, Lahren, the movement isn’t about one race mattering more than another. It’s simply that black lives should be treated the same as all others.
“[Beyonce] just like President Obama, Jada Pinkett Smith, Al Sharpton and so many others that just can’t let America heal, you keep ripping off the historical bandaid. Why be a cultural leader when you can play the victim, right?”
Obviously, it’s those who are constantly hurt and killed by racism that are the ones who just can’t let America heal. Girl, goodnight and goodbye.
“Guess what Beyonce? White people like your music too. White people buy your songs on iTunes, memorize your lyrics and admire your talent and beauty. Little White girls wanna be like you just as little Black girls do, but instead of that, you’d rather perpetuate the great battle of the races,”
Also, to continue on the classy route of this rant, she went on to inform the songstress to “start at home” with her “drug dealing husband” Jay-Z.
“Your husband was a drug dealer. For fourteen years, he sold crack cocaine. Talk about protecting black neighborhoods. Start at home.”
Keep it classy, girl. I think the point was lost somewhere between white girls buying Beyonce’s single on iTunes and bringing up Jay-Z’s past. I’ll try to find it. Or not.
