Rapper: Blacks 'cheered when 9-11 happened'

If Osama bin Laden ever buys a rap album, he'll probably start with a CD by KRS-One.

The hip-hop anarchist has declared his solidarity with al-Qaida by asserting that he and other African-Americans "cheered when 9-11 happened," reports the New York Daily News.

The rapper, real name Kris Parker, defiled the memory of those who died in the terrorist attacks as he spouted off at a recent New Yorker Festival panel discussion.

"I say that proudly," the Boogie Down Productions founder went on, insisting that, before the attack, security guards kept Blacks out of the World Trade Center "because of the way we talk and dress.

"So when the planes hit the building, we were like, 'Mmmm - justice.' "

The atrocity of 9-11 "doesn't affect us the hip-hop community," he said. "9-11 happened to them, not us," he added, explaining that by "them" he meant "the rich ... those who are oppressing us. RCA or BMG, Universal, the radio stations."

Parker also sneered at efforts by other rappers to get young people to vote.

"Voting in a corrupt society adds more corruption," he added. "America has to commit suicide if the world is to be a better place."

It's typical bullshit from rappers in their never ending struggle to bring attention to their pathetic selves to sell albums, the more outrage they create the more albums they sell!! That simple they want people to see them as Badasses or "Bosses" in their vernacular!

Yet another example of why Hip Hop, Rap etc is a waste of perfectly good CD disks!

Why am I not surprise? Racism seems to be a one way street.

Al-Qaida, the best thing going for civil rights since the inception of the ACLU.

Actually I think your thread ought to stay up because it was titled better and gets better visibility than the original thread. Lock the other one.

I find it astonishing that young, black men with no education can make millions of dollars and cry about oppression.
