I saw a Spike Lee film many years ago (before I knew better) and I completely misread his ending. I was being charitable and assumed that the black characters were being introspective when noting how the Asians in the neighborhood seemed to work hard and prosper while they did not. Only later did I find out that I had missed the real “truth” that it was only because of racism that there could be any disparity. It had nothing to do with things like this:
Here’s an example of Ice Cube’s lyrics:
Everytime I wanna go get a f***in brew
I gotta go down to the store with the two
oriental one-penny countin motherf***ers
that make a nigga made enough to cause a little ruckus
Thinkin every brother in the world’s out to take
So they watch every damn move that I make
They hope I don’t pull out a gat and try to rob
they funky little store, but bitch, I got a job
(“Look you little Chinese motherf***er
I ain’t tryin to steal none of yo’ sh**, leave me alone!”
Yo yo, check it out
So don’t follow me, up and down your market
Or your little chop suey ass’ll be a target
of the nationwide boycott
Juice with the people, that’s what the boy got
So pay respect to the black fist
or we’ll burn your store, right down to a crisp
And then we’ll see ya!
Cause you can’t turn the ghetto – into Black Korea
That is, the goon encourages the impressionable young idiots who listen to this noise to burn down businesses run by Koreans. At the time “Black Korea” came out, blacks were constantly stealing from the Korean-owned groceries that were on practically every block in New York, then screaming oppression when the owners tried to stop them. Al Sharpton got involved. Now you don’t see so many Korean groceries. That’s what Koreans get for working their tails off to make a living rather that whimpering that they are victims and going on welfare like good minorities.

This is White Supremacist Liberal-infused thinking for you: Burn the Koreans’ stores down to prove that their skepticism of your behavior was completely unfounded. It is just like the Muslims who will kill you for daring to say they are violent. Their claims of oppression could only be believed by tone-deaf, self-loathing “Christian” Left types.
One thought on “Now why would anyone be suspicious of them?”
I haven’t reviewed a lot of rap lyrics, but of those I have, I find little evidence that the rapper is truly “keeping it real”.
