Willie D has recently taken a shot at some of his own people for “cooning.” He criticized Charles Barkley for talking down on his own race in order to please white people. Willie D claims that Charles Barkley was bought out and turned his back on his people for money from TNT. The money and the fame Charles Barkley has accumulated caused him to forget where he came from. He then proceeded to say “you kissed a man in the mouth for real dudes that’s a no no, when you gonna come out the closet you fucking homo,” questioning Barkley’s sexuality. He called Barkley a “dumb nigga” for commenting about slavery not being that bad.
He later proceeded to call out Steven A Smith for and Raven-Symone for “cooning for capital.” He also attacked a lot of other media personality.
I strongly suggest we listen to this song. We can see that even the year of 2016 we still have conflict on “how to be black in America.” What acceptable before for both black men and women. This song can be compared to many movies that we have seen such as Bamboozled, Hollywood Shuffle, and Get on the Bus.
Most importantly, I feel like this song is a great response to Chiraq. Especially since I just saw a documentary done about destroyed black lives. Basically, Spike is saying when black people kill each other we shouldn’t take it serious. Instead we should be satirical about it.
