****I meant to put this on this thread. THIS IMO, is neither "art or entertainment"."****




There's a long, offensive history of black people being compared to lesser primates. Apparently, Sheek Louch (The Lox/D-Block) and Def Jam's art department were unaware of this when they designed the cover of his upcoming album, 'Donnie G: Don Gorilla,' and sent it around for rap blogs to post.



Welcome to 21st-century America and the world of entertainment, where black people embarrass themselves by choice -- no corporate or societal pressure necessary. We guess that Sheek's train of thought was something like this:


"Yo, I want to let people know that I'm tough, and strong, and wild like a animal. But I also want people to know that I'm gangsta and powerful and I make things happen like a mob boss. Hmmmm... I'm like a gorilla! But like a really smart one with mafia connections like a Don! Don Gorilla! Donnie G!"
 

Fail.


Have his slightly more aware Lox brethren Styles P and Jadakiss seen this? No one pulled him to the side and told him that this wasn't a good look? Due to the artwork, this is an album we probably won't be copping on Dec. 14, just on general principle. SMH, Don Gorilla, SMH.

"I'm like a gorilla! But like a really smart one with mafia connections like a Don!" He sounds like he's describing some bad guy that Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse used to fight!  What an idiot.

Now that's funny!

What he said did sound like he probably road areally really short bus to school.  Or maybe they are trying to make a monkey out him.
  He's just another GREAT example of what BLACK music is NOT!  Typical rapist of our genre.  And I tell ya,,,,he really HAS no idea he's doing anything wrong....or damaging to his culture.   This is why I don't or EVER considered [gangsta] rap[e] or some forms of bad hip hop... MUSIC!  He might as well look for a tall building with circling airplanes to do his video.  As I always say "massa done good."  Cuz this young brotha here definitely DON'T get it.  Hell...he thinks it's cool....instead of a total insult to his people.  Does he care?  Hell to the Nawl.  Where oh where is his MAMA? But.  I'm just sayin

Now, that what make this and things like it scary.  Even more evidence that how we are perceived as a people, as a race, is in the hands of others (or may as well be); in the hands of those who don't care about us; still in the hands of those set out to destroy us and any acceptance by others.
P.S.:  I see this after a long running argument with a racist on another site who claimed that "when the Romans/Greeks where (initially came to) in Egypt that they could not tell the Black people from the Apes walking around, that they kept getting them mixed up."  After many back and forths, I squashed that lie with evidence to the contrary and the ending question of "When were gorrillas ever living in Egypt (and walking around amongst the people at that)?"

Can you believe this racist was trying to pass that racist bullshit off as fact on the site?

  Yep I believe it.  Cuz he thinks that eveyone BELIEVES that bullshyte massa tries to pass off as our  history.  He thinks blackfolks don't know the REAL truth about THEIR history.  He thinks that everyone believes the European twisted perception as he continues to lie about black culture.   Truth be told, when the Greeks and Romansentered into Egypt, they were AMAZED at what they saw: gold dust on every walk way, tall and small pyramids scattered throughout the region, trees of every fruit and nut....and the animals-most were domested.  And the women  were QUEENS in high regard[not peasants or WHORES].....all folks young and old held high advanced knowledge.  The Greeks and Romans badly wanted what the Egyptians had and did everythang they possible could to obtain/acquire it.  And there began, the downfall of Africa[but!  as we know this downfall  occurred thousands upon thousands of years later....so they really didn't get anything but bits and pieces of our past.  That's why African knowledge is still being referred to as Egyptian Mysteries....cuz they i.e. Greeks and Romans STILL don't know all of what we had].  But!  I'm just sayin

Exactly!
