The Official Candy of 'Da Club'?!

Well, this new-aged minstrel show often mistaken for hip-hop has taken yet another unfortunate turn. Just when I was starting to forgive my people for producing songs like "It's getting hot in heeere" (did Nelly intend to say "hot in here" or "hot in her"?! Your call...), or "E'erbody in da club gettin' tipsy", the music industry has found another way to molest hip hop and insult black culture.

D4L (*note* I never even heard of them until now) just came out with, what's sure to be a crowd pleaser in the club, "Laffy Taffy"; where women's anatomies are being compared to the fruit-flavored candy. Now, I've seen some intellectually offensive stuff in my day (hard not to, with Bush being President), but this one takes the cake.

In honor of the popular treat, I have a riddle that I think would be pretty cool to see on one of those candy wrappers:

Q: Is this what Black America has been reduced to?! Is BET the breeding ground for neo-minstrel-ism? If so, why aren't more of us outraged? Why won't we speak out?

A: Maybe it's because we've got too much Laffy Taffy in our mouths.

Not funny, you say? Well neither is the propagating the idea of black intellectual inferiority through the use of over-commericialized and creatively stagnant methods at entertainment...

Sorry for offending you, 50 cent, Jr. (would that make you 25 cent?)

But to show that there are no hard feelings, let me be the first one to applaud the brilliance of your lastest joint: "Lick it like a Naw Lata" (or "Now & Later" for your 'white talkin' fan base). Way to represent Dirty South Productions, brotha!

Go ahead. Thank Jesus for your success...

"Lick it like a Naw Lata"?! Classic! It's just too bad that Mr. BET's dumb ass won't get that!
