Montana Of 300 Says Industry Is Turning “Black Men Into Feminine Ass Slaves”

Why Do So Many Black Celebrities Go Viral by Mocking and Imitating Black Women?

Published

on

Montana of 300 got the internet talking last night after a series of tweets referring to how the industry (in his opinion) is turning “Black men into feminine ass slaves.”

Fans speculated that the rapper may be referring to new age rap movements where artists consistently challenge masculinity for example, Young Thug dawning a dress for his highly anticipated “Jeffrey” mixtape cover.

Montana’s remarks also shed light on an ongoing dispute that Hollywood makes black actors dress up as women to emasculate the black man. Dave Chappelle talked about it on Oprah Winfrey’s show.

It sounded a little nutty at first but then…. I started to see it too, Hollywood is putting a lot of their black celebrities in a dress. Tyler Perry (Madea), Martin Lawrence (Big Mama), Eddie Murphy (Rasputia), this list goes on and on. But is this Hollywood putting black men in female roles or are black men volunteering to be portrayed in this way for creative purposes or financial gain & is this problematic?

“Its like everyday I get on Instagram and it’s a new n*gga putting a muthaf*cking wig on, acting like he’s his grandmama or some ratchet ass girl. Man cut that sh*t out, sh*t aint even funny no more. Y’all … are just trying to find a way to wear wigs an be b*tches,” — Brian Miller

It should be noted that a vast majority of instagram comedians use wigs and other female props to deliver their jokes. Dana Chanel personally criticized Instagram Comedian @BlameItOnKway and other black male comedians for wearing wigs in their comedy skits.

Comedians play on various stereotypes including the widely accepted image of “the angry black woman.” The reason these skits are so popular is because it’s easy to identify with them. These character skits are imitation, not total fabrication, so men are replicating situations where a friend or someone you know at some point acted this way, or you may even act that way under certain circumstances. The problem with this is that it continues to reinforce these stereotypes by representing women in this manor and continuously putting women at the butt end of all the jokes. While some skits are hilarious, the over usage of this style of sketch is admittedly getting played out.

“As an Afro Latina I truly believe it’s a poor and degrading representation of the power of a black mans talents, who I am, my family and my kids will become. You are actors capable of being the next Denzel, the next Michael b jordan. You guys are capable of taking your talents beyond social media. This is not cool. Propaganda at its best, destroying and feminizing the black mans image. This is the “sunken” place. Lol and its disheartening so many people support and encourage them to act like females when they are saying that’s how they see “us” as women and think it’s funny.” — Dana Chanel

Kway fired back revealing that he & business partner LaLaSizaHands has bought a $1 million dollar mansion from shooting comedic videos in wigs.

“I mean, hey, lots of comedians dress up like women, not just Black. It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book. Men in drag…There was Mrs. Doubtfire. [Adam] Sandler’s next movies is Jack and Jill. He plays his brother and sister. [The Black community] doesn’t have that many movies, so if there’s only four Black movies in a year and two of them star Black men in dresses, I could see how that would upset some people. But that’s a job for some people. Tyler Perry is great in a dress, but I don’t want to see Denzel or Will Smith in a dress. And I don’t think we’re in any danger of seeing that.”

So clearly there’s a market for black comedians portraying black women. But is the industry forcing these comedic occurrences to occur?

Almost 2 years ago, Comedian Jay Pharaoh was let go from Saturday Night Live after six seasons on the show. Jay Pharaoh revealed that part of the reason this occurs me happened was in part because he wouldn’t wear a dress.

“They put people into boxes, and whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do,” Pharoah says about SNL not using his full potential. “You go where you’re appreciated. You have multiple people on the cast saying things like, ‘You’re so talented, and you’re able, and they don’t use you.’ It’s unfair because they don’t use you and you’re a talent.”

Pharoah says they couldn’t understand why he would be so opposed to wearing the dress, wondering, “‘What?! What do you mean you’re not doing it?’ However, the actor continued telling SNL bosses, “I mean I’m not putting on a dress.”

While he was officially fired in 2016, Pharoah claims he was nearly let go in 2013, when he spoke out and said SNL didn’t have any black female cast members.

Ironically, the controversial statements led to the hiring of Sasheer Zamata, SNL’s first black female cast member in seven years. It also made way for Leslie Jones and LaKendra Tookes as writers.

Spotify Launching Tekashi 6ix9ine Podcast

Spotify and Complex drop the first episode of their “Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story” podcast this week

Published

on

“It wasn’t just the music that got him attention, but his outspoken public persona and legal issues that overtook his career. The Infamous podcast dives into an eight-episode series which follows Daniel Hernandez’s transformation, from high school dropout working at a Brooklyn deli, trademark tattoos and rainbow hair, to a polarizing viral rapper, who beefed with anybody and everybody who stood in his way (i.e. The Game, YG, and Casanova, among others). Moreover, his affinity with courted local gang life paid a price not only for him, but anyone around him. With his closest allies now behind bars, Tekashi has to live the rest of his life, looking over his shoulder.

6ix9ine came out of nowhere to become 2018’s biggest new rapper. After a year of hits, beef, and gang violence, he was something else: hip-hop’s most famous cooperating witness. This is Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story, narrated by Angie Martinez.”

Gabrielle Union Fired From “America’s Got Talent” For Speaking Up About Racism & Sexism

Gabrielle Union was the #1 talent on network TV for 2019. ‘America’s Got Talent decided not to renew her contract after being the #1 talent on the show. Why?

Season 14 of America’s Got Talent ran from May to September of this year, crowning Kodi Lee as its winner. Terry Crews was introduced as this seasons new permanent host, as well as the addition of Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union as judges joining Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel at the judges table. The two replaced longtime judges Melanie Brown (Spice Girls) and model-host Heidi Klum.

On November 22nd multiple sources confirmed that Gabrielle Union & Julianne Hough would not be returning to the judges chair on their NBC hit show. According to reports from LoveBScott, the firing came as a result of Gabrielle Union speaking up about ‘problematic’ situations, including racism, sexism, and more.

A source from NBC told the outlet the following about Union’s reported firing:

“[Gabrielle’s] contract was not renewed after being the #1 talent on the show, NBC and network TV. She set the record for her Golden Buzzer. They only replace the women and blacks at Simon’s whim. She wouldn’t walk away from $12 million because she’s ‘busy.’ Based on weekly interactions on social media, by the time AGT finale aired Gabrielle was the #1 talent on network TV for 2019. Why not pick up someone’s option in extreme success?”

The source also alleges that the firing had nothing to do with either judge’s popularity–because both received more interactions than Howie Mandel, who still has a job.

“Social media engagement is the new measuring stick for talent and Simon isn’t on social media. Juliane and Gabrielle were both way higher ranked/engaged than Howie. The idea the network wants to ‘switch things up’ only applies to women and Black folks. Nick Cannon wasn’t crazy. He walked away from 8-figures over how [AGT] operates.”

Nick Cannon quit “America’s Got Talent” in 2017 after hosting 8 seasons. after being “threatened with termination by executives” over a joke he made about NBC on a Showtime comedy special.

“I was to be punished for a joke … My soul won’t allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices. Not to get too detailed but this isn’t the first time executives have attempted to ‘put me in my place’ for so-called unruly actions,” he wrote on Facebook. “I will not stand for it. My moral principles will easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head.”
