Zoeja Jean's Trayvon Martin Rap Track Calls for a Racially Charged, Counterproductive "Riot"

mug_trayvonm.jpg
Not always a virtual land of quirky viral videos, blooper reels, cute puppies, and adorable kittens, YouTube is often a forum for hate, a safe haven for bigotry.

In the wake of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's unjustifiable death, YouTube has become an outlet for angry folks to spew hatred. Florida City's Zoeja Lajan Jean is the latest.

The Haitian-born rapper's "All Black in My Hoodie" is a six-and-a-half minute-long protest song that encourages African Americans to start a racially charged "riot."



"Fuck all that bullshit, protest with justice/I feel like the Black Panthers, let's start a riot ... If we don't do shit, at least that cracker/Six months later, they're gonna kill another brother."

Everyone with a conscience and heart knows that Martin's death was unnecessary. And despite what his lawyers will argue, George Zimmerman's motives were clearly deeper than a commitment to his Neighborhood Watch program.

Inexplicably, race remains the elephant in American society's room. And disturbingly, YouTube is often a peek inside.

The following comments appear on Zoeja Lajan Jean's "All Black in my Hoodie" YouTube post; they're as racially tinged as the rapper's violent track is counterproductive to the fight against racial inequality.

At press time, "All Black in my Hoodie" had generated 411 comments, the bulk of which were despicable. But what's worse, Jean's hateful song or his hateful commenters?

Take our poll. And most importantly, try to love one another.

It's because a white person who talks that shit in real life is likely to be killed by a sensitive black.  but black people get away with everythng thats why people like zoeja jean, al sharptn, michelle williams and every other racist black have no fear...last time i checked 99% of race murders are black on white as well so blacks have nothing to fear by speaking their mind so they have all the power

What Malcolm said in the context of the movement back in the day was correct. However to attach it to this song and to attach the song to Trayvon , is not what Trayvon's family wants, and not what the majority of people sensitive to this case want. Zimmerman needs to be brought to justice. Resorting to violence is not productive. Chaka Khan's tribute is much more productive because she used her artistry to turn poison into medicine.

The hatian rapper is a fat boy who needs to lay off double cheeseburgers.He would last 1 minute in a riot before running out of breath.
