There is only one word for rapper Lil Wayne stomping on the U.S. flag — disgraceful. He walked all over the flag while filming a music video for his “God Bless Amerika” song in New Orleans last weekend. You will recall Lil Wayne came under fire for his despicable lyrics about Emmett Till, which led to him being dropped by a sponsor after public outcry from Till’s relatives. All Lil Wayne supporters are enabling his bad behavior. He is literally stomping all over those black Americans who were jailed, many died fighting for civil rights.
What’s equally disgraceful is that not one person who was standing behind Lil Wayne had the courage to pick up the flag or walk away from such denigration. Speaks volumes about the kind of depraved society we have become where anything goes. The continued dumbing-down of America.
