Variety: Why Rap Should Retire The N-Word For Good

After the Kendrick Lamar fan onstage incident, a black writer Jeremy Helligar wrote an article for Variety titled "Kendrick Lamar’s Onstage Outrage: Why Rap Should Retire The N-Word For Good".

- Says that the widespread spread of black rappers (who use the N-word) wouldn’t be possible without the support of white fans. If they are going to accept royalties from album sales and concert revenue from both black and white fans, they can’t legitimately expect them to consume your music differently.
- Asks if it is really fair to have one set of rules for black fans and another for white fans?
- Says young fans, whether white or black are impressionable and often co-opted the style, mannerisms and speech of their favorite musicians.
- Says that rap and hip-hop music wouldn't lose any of its lyrical might if musicians dropped the N-word altogether and asks what does it add to the song’s message anyway?
- Says that use of n-word makes whites think that "racism isn’t as much of an issue as blacks say it is and maybe the N-word is OK for everyone to use, after all."
Ends the article by saying that "the kings and queens of rap and hip hop must accept some of the blame. It’s not too late to turn things around, but if a change is gonna come, it might have to start with them."

SVU Season 19 Finale Post-Mortem: Tragedy Struck! (not really)

SVU showrunner Michael Chernuchin discusses last night's ~Heartbreaking Finale~, and it is painfully evident that he is operating under the mistaken assumption that a) he's still writing for Chicago Justice, b) people actually watched Chicago Justice, and c) people give a fuck about the new beige ADA who isn't Barba.

He spends the majority of this brief interview talking about Not!Barba and his brand new emotional trauma, taking the time to reassure us that Stone is now a permanent team member (yay!) and we will get to see him processing his emotions at length next season (somewhere, Rafael Barba is weeping). Conversely, the showrunner only briefly discusses Benson, just long enough to allege that her fans are masochists who don't ever want to see her happy. Also, she will be ~helping~ Stone heal (i.e. they'll fuck). The showrunner also mentions Fin, who is a Sergeant now, and the confirms that Fin will stay with SVU because of some blackmail material he has on Daddy Dodds.

And none for Carisi.

ONTD, did you watch last night's excruciating 2-hour finale? (and I don't mean excruciating because of what happened, I just mean because it was 2 hours long). Do you, by any chance, actually like the new star of the show, Philip Winchester? Did you feel bad for him? Do you appreciate the fact he keeps getting so much screentime and the season finale ended on him and his manpain, while our bae Carisi is constantly paid dust? And, lastly, do you want to see Benson happy?
