At a Chicago protest against police violence:

OOOOOOOOooooooo that’s my shit right there!  I’ve loved that track forever.

Disrespectful?  Racially offensive?  What do you think?  I’d say more disrespectful than anything just due to the noise aspect… people want to make EVERYTHING about race.  If he would have been cranking out “IM ALL ABOUT THAT BASS NO TREBLE” people would have been like “That song is for cracKA ass CrackaZzzz, everybody knows that!  RACIST!”

Anyway… according to the Chicago Tribune article, the officer will be suspended for 10 days.

Some of the lyrics in themselves aren’t racist … but I know it’s also been co-opted by groups, maybe bigoted groups, as an anthem of Southern pride and those Confederate-type values,” said Michael, 30. “That’s what was so jarring to me. To hear that playing from a police car at the end of a protest against police brutality and the murder of African-Americans, it was just jarring.

HSLD-Operator-Rio-Police-OfficerLOL cool story bro a.k.a. “Michael, age 30”.  So fucking jarred bRah… hopefully you recover and your doctor prescribes you some medical for PSHASD (Post Sweet Home Alabama Stress Disorder).

I bet the cop now wishes he played “Wu-Tang Clan – Ain’t Nothin Ta Fuck Wit“.   10 days is 10 days.  Wu-Tang clan membership is 100% black too, so could that even be called racist?  Probably, like inception racism or something complicated.

Thoughts?
