As an American who happens to be Black, it is so difficult to stay up-to-date on what is supposed to offend me. One year it’s cotton in aspirin bottles, another it’s the American flag, and another is Gucci clothes and accessories. In lieu of the SJW hopscotch or what I will coin as ADHD activism, what truly offends me is the “intersectionality” (I’m sick of this word) of race and immigration.
To set the record straight, illegal is not a race.
This point is clearly missed on the author of a recent NY Times Opinion piece about “immigrant” Rapper 21 Savage who’s songs are entitled “Ghostface Killers”, “Slaughter Your Daughter”, “break da law”and “Disrespectful”. It’s truly charming how the opinion writer aches to elicit sympathy for a rapper who glorifies murder, prostitution, drug use and outright breaking the law which according to his lawyer “is clearly not a danger to the community, and in fact, his contributions to local communities and schools that he grew up in are examples of the type of immigrant we want in America.” Oh really?
So, let’s deconstruct this.
“Ghostface Killers” talks of drug dealers and users shooting and killing along with using women as prostitutes all while calling people the n-word. Just a sample of the lyrics: “Automatic (auto) automatics, in the trunk. Shoot the maggots, shoot the maggots with the pump…Drug dealers in the Mulsanne, at the top of the food chain…After I cut off a thot I giver her some money for service…These n-word is broke and it’s pitiful.”
As the crisis on our border intensifies, these porous borders become a magnet for drugs such as meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl. Just this year alone, ICE has seized enough fentanyl to kill almost every American. From 2010 to 2017, heroin-related overdose deaths increased by more than five times. In terms of sex crimes, women and children at the border are particularly vulnerable. Children and women from Central America are victims of sex and human trafficking where some are forced into servicing 15 to 40 men a day. Even one woman or one child trafficked is one too many. The city of Atlanta (previously nick-named “Chocolate City”, “Black Mecca”, etc.), where 21 Savage lives, is a hub for sex and human trafficking. His next “song” is just as illustrious.
“Slaughter Your Daughter” speaks of introducing young ladies to drugs, getting them hooked, and high, turning them into strippers and using their bodies to make money for 21 Savage. Here’s a sample: “Ferragamo…I bought a Benz…I gave her a molly. She talking to Scotty. She dancing in Follies…” Throughout his oh-so-Shakespearean-prose, at no time does he specify an ethnicity or race. As long as 21 Savage can purchase “Ferragamo” and “a Benz”, separating families gets his seal of approval. Wryly, in his next song, he doesn’t conceal what he and his family are doing.
“Break da law”‘s chorus is “..Me and my dawgs break laws, 21 gang ’til I fall…Don’t you cross the gang, dawg. We’re like barbed wire…” Ironically, that is what he and his parents were doing as they overstayed their one year visa (no barbed wire necessary) in 2005. So, true to his lyrics, they did “break da law” and continue to break the law through their continued presence in the United States. The Department of Homeland Security calculated that for FY2017, over 700,000 people have overstayed their U.S. visa. I suspect there is a United Nations-type representation in this group of people of which he is one. All 700,000+ are all illegal aliens by the way.
Contrary to what SJWs and their sycophants in the media tell you, illegal is not a race just as 21 Savage is not an immigrant; he is an illegal alien. He earns money rapping about drug abuse, murder, and sex crimes; all of which happened to Angel Families at the hands of illegal aliens. He openly touts disrespecting our laws while begging for mercy as he remains in the US which, in fact, breaks the law.
Unlike his rap songs where the culprit gets away, 21 Savage must now face the consequences of his actions. Maybe his next rap album will rap about the international caravan of people he meets as they are all deported out of the US and returned to their home countries.Inger Eberhart of Cherokee County, Georgia is a member of the board of advisors of the pro-enforcement Dustin Inman Society.
