Fox News Fans Furious At Jay-Z For Mentioning White Privilege
Fox News tweeted and aired a segment about rapper and business Mogul Jay-Z talking about white privilege on David Letterman’s new Netflix talk show (video below).
Jay-Z made his statement in a conversation about Trump:
He’s bringing out an ugly side of America that we wanted to believe was gone, and it’s still here, and we still gotta deal with it. And we have to have the conversation, we have to have a tough conversation. We have to talk about the N-word and we have to talk about why white men are so privileged in this country.
During a Fox & Friends segment about Jay-Z’s comment, Ashley Earnhardt pushed back:
Well, he’s complaining, yeah, because Jay-Z’s complaining about white privilege, but we had a black president for eight years. Did he do a good job?
Likewise, Fox News viewers were outraged on Twitter:
In fact, white men are the only demographic that is specifically DISADVANTAGED under civil rights laws.
But yeah, muh privilege lmao

It is so important this guy be taken down a notch. Perhaps many notches. He has not a clue about Real America. It’s sad and pathetic. Also, has he earned his wealth??? He raps. What does rap do for society? Nothing!!!!!

I’m privileged not to beat my wife or girlfriend. I’m privileged not to smoke crack. I’m privileged to stay in school taught by a black teacher. I’m privileged to listen to law enforcement and obey the law. I’m privileged to fight for my life and earn what I need and not whine.

If a black man and white man both have identical accomplishments the belief is that the white guy didnt work as hard or earn his accomplishments but the black guy did. Hows that for systemic racism?

This crap does not ring true to most Americans after the Obama presidency.
It sounds completely ridiculous coming from someone like Jay Z.

We have to talk about black men running around our inner cities shooting each other.
