Just hours after Lil Wayne had publicly declared racism dead, some Kansas State girl had to go break out the defibrillator and revive that cold, bigoted corpse back to life.
Dammit. We were so close. Weezy had zipped up racism in a body bag and it was ready for morgue transport. Racism is the Rasputin of social issues. The son of a bitch just won’t die.
So, as you can imagine, homegirl is now the focus of the internet today.
All publicity is good publicity, right Paige? Let’s try to spin this in your favor, shall we? You meant “Ninja.” Blame autocorrect. That’s not blackface, it’s a Sanjaku-tenugui — the ninja’s face wrap. And you’re not throwing up “Westside,” that’s a sai — the three-pronged ninja dagger. You’re still going to take some heat for appropriating Asian culture, but you’d much rather die on that hill than over here looking like the “Jazz Singer.” You didn’t even get a Halloween costume out of the whole thing, either. All you had to do was wait a month and you’d at least have that silver lining. You’re not that bright, huh?
Don’t worry, you’ll have your fifteen minutes of infamy and be completely forgotten about in a few days. That’s just how the World Wide Web works. So hunker down and weather the storm. And for the love of God, don’t be like the Oklahoma SAE kid who held a press conference 2 months after the fact when he was all but a distant memory. Apologize immediately and disappear forever, for your own sake..
