(Spoiler Alert: Its Had Nothing To Do With Colin Kaepernick)
Whose Mans is this?? Last Sunday, during that little game that was played….the Super Blah or something like that, Beyonce and Jay-Z made headlines for sitting during the National Anthem aka, the country’s ode to its racist, colonizing beginnings.
White tears were pouring and some of you collected them to wash your fucks away. These white folks were furious at the disrespect of their sitting during that lie of a song that doesn’t apply to Black Americans.
Beyoncé & Jay-Z (former crack dealer)sit for the national anthem because apparently the United States of America has oppressed them with millions upon millions of dollars & fans. Sounds rough. Maybe they should try another country that allows them a little more freedom & success?

Though I’m skeptical of the Caters true ‘woke’ intentions, especially since Jay sold his soul to the NFL at a discount but was like, ok, at least they made a statement.
Jay-Z, making sure to not fuck up his bag, had to open his mouth to clarify.
While doing a Q&A last night at Columbia University, Jay was asked about the “protest” to which he said:
“What happened was, we got there, we were sitting, and now the show’s about to start. My wife was with me and so she says to me, ‘I know this feeling right here.’ Like, she’s super-nervous because she’s performed at Super Bowls before. I haven’t.”
What had happened was…
Oh but he wasn’t finished throwing the culture under the bus. He went on to say:
“So the whole time we’re sitting there, we’re talking about the performance, and then right after that, Demi [Lovato] comes out and we’re talking about how beautiful she looked, and how she sounds and what she’s going through, and her life — for her to be on the stage, we were so proud of her. And then it finished and then my phone rang. And it was like, ‘You know you didn’t …’ I’m like, ‘What?’”
But wait…there’s more! Jay didn’t feel the need to make a silent protest because…
“If you look at the stage and the artists that we chose — Colombian [Shakira] and Puerto Rican J.Lo — we were making the loudest statement … And we had … a commercial running [on] social injustice during the Super Bowl … Given the context, I didn’t have to make a silent protest.”
IS THIS YOUR KING? Cuz he’s looking more like an extremely well-off jester.
Black History Month 2020 is off to a rocky start.
I wish he would’ve just sat there and ate his food.
