"this rap apology ish going too far. they done got j.cole smh"


  

          

Cole ain't never hurt nobody yo

Nyggas ain't going to be able to say shyt anymore

Political correctness getting out of hand

http://www.missinfo.tv/index.php/j-cole-autism-apology-jodeci-freestyle/

J. Cole is the latest rapper to come under fire for offensive lyrics, but he’s handling it better than most. After the Anti-Bullying Alliance started a petition (which gathered over 4,000 signatures) against Cole and Drake for a line on “Jodeci Freestyle” (“I’m artistic, you n*ggas is autistic, retarded”) earlier this week, the Roc Nation MC has penned an apology letter to Autism Speaks.

In it, he begins by addressing other recent controversies regarding offensive rap lyrics, boldly writing, “I do not believe that an apology is needed every time someone is offended, especially when that apology is really only for the sake of saving an endorsement or cleaning up bad press.” Cole does, however, offer a sincere apology and expresses his shame and embarrassment about the lyric in question.

Autism Speaks

Recently there’s been a trend that includes rappers saying something offensive, only to be attacked for it in the media and pressured to apologize. I have to be completely honest and say there’s a part of me that resents that. I view rap similar to how I view comedy. It’s going to ruffle feathers at times. It’s going to go “too far”. I do not believe that an apology is needed every time someone is offended, especially when that apology is really only for the sake of saving an endorsement or cleaning up bad press.

With that said, this is not the case today. This letter is sincere. This apology IS necessary.

In a recent verse on the song “Jodeci Freestyle”, I said something highly offensive to people with Autism. Last week, when I first saw a comment from someone outraged about the lyric, I realized right away that what I said was wrong. I was instantly embarrassed that I would be ignorant enough say something so hurtful. What makes the crime worse is that I should have known better.

To the entire Autism community who expressed outrage, I’m moved and inspired by your passion, and I’m amazed at how strong you are as a unit. I have now read stories online from parents about their struggles and triumphs with raising an Autistic child and I admire how incredibly strong you have to be to do so. It’s touching. It also makes what I said even more embarrassing for me. I feel real shame. You have every right to be angry.

To anyone suffering from Autism, either mildly or severely, I am sorry. I’m bound to make mistakes in my life, but in my heart I just want to spread Love.

I want to educate myself more on Autism, and I’ll gladly own my mistake and serve as an example to today’s generation that there’s nothing cool about mean-spirited comments about someone with Autism. People with this disorder and their loved ones have to go through so much already, the last thing they need is to hear something as ignorant as what I said. I understand.

To the parents who are fighting through the frustrations that must come with raising a child with severe autism, finding strength and patience that they never knew they had; to the college student with Asperger’s Syndrome; to all those overcoming Autism. You deserve medals, not disrespect. I hope you accept my sincere apology.

Much Love

-Cole

In response to Reply # 8


  

          

and some of it is subjective.
some people think "the marshal mathers LP" is irredeemable
because of it's lyrical content.


i think that you can make all of those arguments, but the fact remains it's a brilliant album. and it's a challenging album. which is what great art should be.




nevertheless, people were offended and they protested.
which is exactly what they should have done, as a reaction to their feelings.


eminem knew full well what the reactions would be.
but he was willing to bear the brunt of people's outrage because he believed in his work as an artist. (or maybe he just didn't give a fuck.)





either way, that's the risk an artist (or anybody, really) takes
when they say things that go against the grain.
it's just the way of the world.

there was outcry, then there was profiteering ... now there's profiteering and outcry?

doesn't make sense.

interesting you bring up that slim record. i kind of viewed it how you do initially, and since i've gone back and forth on it a lot. i haven't listened to it in a long time, maybe this is an appropriate to do it. i definitely chilled my praise of it at one point about five years after its release, and then pushed it aside since.

<<< VERSATILITY

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

RANT:


people only seem to use that phrase as a way to feign outrage
at the fact that you can't say whatever the hell you want to, whenever you want to, to whoever you want to and not expect people to react if you put your foot in your mouth.

is this a new experience for people?
are people generally under the impression that they can say whatever they want while they are at work?

i censor 98 percent of the thoughts i have.
i do this b/c i live in a society.
and as much as i hate some of it's conventions, that's the way it goes sometimes.

watch how you speak to (and about) ppl, unless you are
prepared to deal with the reaction. that's life.





as a side note, janey said that if you think about using the word
"politically correct," replace it with the word "polite," and see
if what you are about to say still makes sense.

that's a good policy.


END RANT

>It's essentially whining that you have to be respectful




no, the flack Tracy Morgan caught for his out burst
was not an attack on his constitutional right to free speech.

Tracy Morgan can say whatever the fuck he wants, for the most part.
and the government can't stop him.

but people in the audience can react to his words with THEIR words,
and nobody can stop them, either.



so really, it's never about the person in the majority having their speech restricted.
it's people in the majority feeling put upon b/c they have to consider how others may react to their words.

which is pretty what we do in a civilized society, anyway.
so the entire argument is dumb.

I think he relies on cursing way too much in general
it took away from the overall message of the songs

Im moght sound like the "Concerned parent" but
I couldnt play his album in the
car with my little nephew and thats sad
hes supposed to be one of the "better" rappers in his generation

In response to Reply # 40


  

          

saying autism is a retardation, is that even factually incorrect?

just feels like an arcane rap agenda, that all

44. "im confused "
In response to Reply # 41


  

          

what's relevant about her to this?

>saying autism is a retardation, is that even factually
>incorrect?

uh, im pretty sure it's VERY incorrect but i should ask my sister whose worked w/ autistic kids for YEARS

>just feels like an arcane rap agenda, that all

defending a rappers bs statements/raps at all cost in the name of "hip hop" or as a racial thing is an agenda too imo, a tired one i dunno about arcane
