the “Scary Black Thug” that America Fears is Financed by White People

Doubling down on Damon Dash and the music industry

by Dr. Samori Swygert

I wrote an article back in May about the very same thing Damon Dash discussed about the music industry, but I never published it. I think this is the perfect time to publish it, so here it is.

We’re far too familiar with the character assassination strategies of the American media. Black males are regularly propagandized as thugs, gang members, drug dealers, pimps, and more. You can turn on Fox News and watch Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity lambast rappers ad nauseam infinitum. You’ll also see Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh throw in their cheap convenient jabs from time to time.

However, there is a unique dynamic that you won’t see on these news networks. Why?

We’ve seen how Trayvon Martin was minding his business and was harassed and killed by George Zimmerman. The media made it their business to criminalize him as a weed smoking thug. We’ve seen how Richard Sherman was transformed into a “thug” under the media microscope for having an opinion. DeSean Jackson was dismissed because of “alleged gang affiliation.”

However, the media won’t ever publicly come out and ask the following questions to their contemporary media partners in the entertainment industry: Why are you funding, subsidizing, and promoting a culture of crime, drugs, and sëxual promiscuity by luring young black men with million dollar contracts? Why are you promoting the very thing we fear, hate, and criminalize about thugs and drug dealersWhy are you endorsing and supporting this lifestyle, instead of providing million-dollar deals to music artists with a positive message?

I'm almost hesitant to post these videos here, although, they are on YouTube for the public to see. I guess it all boils down to what you gather from videos such as this.
