Quentin Tarantino calls Drug War Slavery

Quentin-Tarantino

Director – Django Unchained – Quentin Tarantino

 

A lot of people are questioning the use of the word “nigger” in his new movie starring Jamie Foxx. Stop questioning. It’s fine. It’s a movie which takes place during a time when that word was used frequently. Get over it. Now to the real story…

On his recent publicity tour for the movie, Tarantino equated the mass incarceration of youth and men of color in the bogus “drug war”, with modern day slavery. This is true. The next question is how much longer will Hiphoppas tolerate the glorification of anti-social values in mainstream rap? Have we gotten to the tipping point yet or do we have a ways more to go?

True, the era of mainstream trap music has been taken over by the party crowd. Yet, we haven’t come to grips with Hip Hop real stance on mass incarceration. On the one hand, we highlight it as a fact. Then, on the other hand listen to rappers who pimp the trap. It’s not whether rappers should have the freedom to make trap music, but whether FM radio should ever play it. Maybe, we can say that we don’t need to worry about that anymore, because the trap era is over. Is it over?
