“Bernie Sanders wants to rebuild bridges and also fighting against the fossil fuels,” B told Michael Eric Dyson. “I’m really down for that, because I’m always down to conserve and save energy.”

    Lil B the guest on this and other shows like this one is so far apart from the rapper he is on records it’s hard to take him seriously.

    the recent grad from MIT isn’t being brought on a national television show for q&a; the local electrical engineer isn’t being brought to the table; the family whos been married over 20 years isn’t being interviewed, but there’s always a platform these rappers. the fact that he is aware of such topics is commendable. but Im a bit fed up with rappers & out of touch celebrities speaking while the average joe isn’t even at the table. theres something to be said for celebrities who do understand, who are intune with everyday ppl, and are willing & capable of bringing salient issues to the table. theres no machine behind the actions & words of our neighbor. there is a powerful one behind these name brand celebrities.

    Lil’ B: “And erm that’s why Black lives do matter. There’s a lot of different minorities… and erm… Bernie Sanders wants to rebuild bridges and erm… things of that nature y’knowamsayin’… tearing down the land that is for the animals, because these are people too our brothers and sisters”

    Dyson: “Listening to Lil’ B intelligently articulate his defense of Bernie Sanders”

    LOOOOOOL That statement tells you all you need to know about Dyson.

    • Q.

      I don’t know if I’m more put off by Lil B being solicited for his opinion, or by Dyson actually taking him seriously.

      …This country is a fvcking joke right now!

        Everything is subject to dumbing down these days. I think CNN is using Lil B to speak to black millennials, because of his social media following. I think it’s really a case of them trying to get attention from the kids on social media.

        They look at places like Tumblr. Analyze what trends on social media and then try and replicate it to get views. The shit just looks extra goofy, but the kids are going to love it.

      • Q.

        Of course. They’re appealing to a consumer demographic, not serious-minded people concerned with serious issues. It’s just pointless bullsh!t. Dyson looks like a clown here. And he’s supposed to be a Hip-Hop intellectual?

      • Dark Matters

        Mos def. I LOL’d when he said, Lil B was intelligently articulating his support for Bernie Sanders.

      • Dark Matters

        Yeah he is. That’s where Obama’s mouth pieces and the liberal propaganda merchants go to get out the White House’s talking points.

      • Q.

        Got it. That’s what you’re saying the whole Dyson vs. West beef was about.

      • Dark Matters

        Watkins (I think it’s him) or I think it was Yvette Carnell was saying one of the perks was going to dinner with the Obamas.

      • Q.

        This dummy said “homosexual and gay people” SMH

        Lil B and Trump should be running mates–TEAM TROLL.

      • Dark Matters

        That’s that social media sh!t. All of the trans and gay advocacy and white pseudo feminism. That’s where all of that shit lives. Lil B knows his constituency really well and like a good politician he’s catering to his crowd.

  4. Q.

    THOUGHTS OF THE DAY…

    a) NEITHER DEMOCRATS NOR REPUBLICANS ACT IN THE INTERESTS OF FREEDOM. THEY
    EXIST TO PRESERVE THE CAPITALIST STRUCTURE. CAPITALISM IS ANTI-FREEDOM IN NATURE. THEREFORE, YOU ARE A SLAVE.

    b)”BLACK” IS A COLOR, NOT A NATIONALITY. IN A WHITE-RUN CAPITALIST SYSTEM, BY DESIGN, A BLACK LIFE WILL NEVER MATTER. BEGGING WILL NOT CHANGE THIS.

    c) IF YOU HAVE TO CONVINCE SOMEONE TO BEHAVE LIKE A HUMAN, THEN MOST LIKELY THEY ARE NOT HUMAN.

    d) FREEDOM IS A BIRTHRIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE. IF IT IS TAKEN FROM YOU, THEN IT IS YOUR OBLIGATION TO TAKE IT BACK…BY ANY MEANS.

    e) THE BEAST ONLY RESPONDS TO HUNGER AND VIOLENCE. YOU ARE NOT EQUIPPED ENOUGH YET TO SUPPRESS IT WITH VIOLENCE. SO TAME IT BY STOP FEEDING IT MONEY.
