Many ‘fragile’ right wingers like Fox network and New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani immediately took issue with the pop singer’s powerful declaration of black pride during the performance, which featured dancers in Black Panthers-style outfits.
Mike took the opportunity to explain to all of the ‘fragile’ White minds upset over Beyonce’s performance that it’s not always about them!
“White people, it’s not always about you,” the Run the Jewels MC said, pointing to the track’s early verses about being a proud black woman. “She’s talking to other black people … that conversation wasn’t even for you.”
Mike also emphasized how the history taught is not always accurate, explaning that The Black Panther organization wasn’t just comprised of and concerned with black people. “It was a socialist group for any downtrodden people.”
