I don't know, but I do know that it's standard practise to promote a musician - make an offensive or controversial video, job done.

Yea pretty ratchet and stupid. But black guy's have a chip on their shoulders when it comes to white women. So they're really just tryna say, we're so big and bad that we have white women crawling around for us. Like Kanye West had a vid where white women were serving them at an all black banquet. The Runaway Movie or My Dark, twisted fantasy thing...but then again it's Kanye haha

well, worry not, their rap careers probably won't kick off, the song itself is pretty bad

The feminists on tumblr should enjoy it.
As for is it racist?
The images obviously point that way but as I could hardly understand a word they were saying, I would have to see a transcript to come to that conclusion.

This is disgusting. Can you imagine if they were white guys with black women on leashes? Needs to be banned IMO. Just sick really.

That song is crap, not sure if it's racist because I couldn't understand what they were saying but the video seems to imply that it is - none the less those girls don't have much self respect if they agreed to that

No, it shouldn't be banned. It should be mocked and derided mercilessly and with scorn, but not banned.

They're clearly portraying them as their white b***hes. But you also have to look at the women and think why would they agree to do such a thing?? It's degrading! You can blame the black men but again the white women consented to it and I don't think any black woman in her right mind would agree to do something so stupid. Stupid song, stupid musician, stupid women on leashes and stupid concept. Yayo university is whack! I'M OUT!:cool:

Nope, I think it absolutely should be banned. If they're sending out a message that white women are like dogs or possessions that black men own, that's disgusting - racist - sick and it should be banned.
Like I said, if it were the other way around, white men and black women it wouldn't have even reached the internet.
Double standards.

Do you often feel the urge to ban things you find distasteful?

No, do you often feel the urge to defend things that are racist and disgusting? mm, what an odd girl indeed.

I'm not defending it? Did I say it was good or worthwhile? No, I said it deserves to be mocked, ridiculed and met with scorn. My point was that it's moronic, and everyone has noticed. I value our personal freedom to express ourselves (or make idiotic music videos) at will.
