Is Kendrick Lamar a phony, a hypocrite, or justified

First off, let's be mature about this discussion. Things have gotten a little over the top lately. I think this is a good topic to talk about but not real confident that some can handle it on here. So be on your best behavior.

The story/debate here is that Kendrick Lamar sings some songs that have alot of words bleeped out when played on the radio. For this concert, he called up a white girl and had her sing with him. She sang the words as the song was written (specifically the "N-Word"). The crowd and Lamar called her out for it. The video can be seen below.

So the question is, was this just a phony setup to get attention? Is he a hypocrite for censoring her singing his lyrics? Or was he justified for calling her out?

Reminds me of an episode of Girlfriends from about 15 years ago. Same fake outrage.

Don't want the white kids singing that word in your song? Don't put it in your song; otherwise, shut the front door up. End of discussion.

From the video, it looked like a totally staged set-up. Why? To gain more publicity, sell more music and draw more fans to future concerts.
He's just being a good businessman. If people fall for it, well OK.

Context is everything; merely saying a word without it means nothing. In this case, the word is said in the context [it is a quote]of a song the ignorant rapper wrote. If the fact that it said by a white person is the reason for the objection; then the person objecting is a bigot and in this a particular case, a hypocrite.

I could go either way on this. The girl should have known better, that word is taboo for a white person to say in this country, she was trying to be hip and it backfired. On the other hand, Lamar knew what he was doing and playing to what he knew would happen. He gets some street cred and free publicity, shrewd business man.

This is a great way to illustrate a sad fact in modern America, however. Many blacks today are no longer struggling for nor content with mere equality. Equality is not enough any longer. The want to be special and have a different set of rules. They now want to be segregated out as a special group of people.

Talk about dramatic. It's a problem sure, but the US has faced significantly bigger, more troublesome obstacles in the past.

Kind of how the White Males are beginning to act here as well? This is one of the most ignorant responses I have ever read on this site.

It's a terrible look for Lamar...no credible way to spin it otherwise.

That said, Blue Check Mark Twitter is doing it's best to do just that.

Do you have an example of a white male today wanting a double standard ? Perhaps you could share it with the class ?


And don't even start with some bone-smoker's two-groom wedding cake. You know what I mean. Just a plain old, boring, run-of-the-mill white guy, like me. We aren't looking for a special set of rules.

Or a sociological exercise to further condition whitey to pipe down and take it.

What would the crowd do if someone white was dumb enough to call him out for the unfairness of his behavior - setting her up just to knock her down ?

“Whitey Pipe Down and Take It” sounds like an R Kelly song gone wrong

Perhaps I should clarify my statement. I didn't meant to imply that white men want a special set of rules, but rather dictate the rules in which ALL people should be following. Furthermore, there are extreme examples of lynchings, cross burnings, KKK rallies, ignorant and racist rants at different gatherings. However, I am well aware that these pieces of garbage are not indicative of all white males, similar to the understanding that small groups of African Americans do not represent the whole. A failure to see that is suggestive of racism if not a clear cut indication of underlying racism.

If you are going to argue that our society is not one that favors a white male over any other classification, then I am not sure you are worth the energy required to type this response. However do yourself a favor and do a little research about our country, and the inherent white privilege, before making an ignorant statement that is based upon the actions of a few rather than the whole. Or, perhaps we should do the same with some of the idiot white men we have seen lately?
