The racist group Black Lives Matter - which has exploded beyond American soil is declaring that a Left-wing Canadian politician "appropriated black culture" because she used one of Beyoncé's song lyrics in a political ad. Using lyrics from Beyoncé's song "Irreplaceable", Niki Ashton emphasized her promise to take an "unapologetic left turn" with her political party.
"To the left, to the left," the ad posted on Twitter read. "Like Beyonce says, to the left," she added above the ad.
I guess pretty soon BLM will be protesting that people of other races listen to music created by Blacks at all. Of course, this would deliver pop music back to the mainstream after having been kidnapped and held hostage by the rap culture.
As an aside, as my friend Greg Allen used to point out, rap is just one letter away from rape and another letter away from crap. But I digress...
The BLM has moved beyond being racist. Now they have become despotic in their racism. When someone cannot quote - and even give attribution to - an artist (and in Bouncy-Bouncy's case I use the tern very loosely) without being assailed as a poacher, the group making the claim must be declared off the rails.
Imagine if the British claimed people who quoted Shakespeare were "appropriating the British culture," of if Irish people claimed anyone who celebrated St. Patrick's Day was "appropriating the Irish culture." The claims themselves - including the BLM claim - are stupid beyond stupidity.
Then, maybe Beyoncé is "appropriating the White culture" because she straightens and dyes her hair blonde...
