Here's some excerpts from the post: "Morning Joe Has a Good Explanation for the Racist SAE Kids: Rap Music" ....
On Tuesday night, Waka Flocka Flame–who has performed at the OU previously for SAE but says he's cancelled his upcoming performance there–went on CNN to express his "disgust" with those in the video. "I was more like hurt, I was more like disgusted," he said. "Because I knew those kids, I performed for those kids. They made me feel like a brother."
... Brzezinski said she doesn't get why the rapper would be upset because he is partially to blame:
Perhaps he should have listened to rest of Waka Flocka Flame's comments: "To me, I really can't blame the kids. To me, I feel like that's passed down."...in other words, yeah, they actually probably did hear it at home, from racist parents.
In my opinion, this is a case where more diverse voices in media—more younger folks, more people of color—would likely (though not assuredly) improve the perspectives they feature. To their credit, other programs on the network like the MHP show and Janet Mock's So POPular do a much better job of this—and are also housed on MSNBC.
