“We don’t hate black celebrities because they are successful or famous or wealthy. No, that would be some sucka shit. We despise them because they become willing tools of American imperialism, we despise them because they immediately assume the same ideological characteristics of our oppressor, we despise them because they far too often use their art at the expense of their own race. They have no racial integrity. They have no sense of loyalty, they only demand loyalty from us, once they catch a case. They have no long term or real interest in the liberation of our communities,…outside the little bullshit charitable events they throw a few times a year…which is a mockery in and of itself….it does nothing to sustain our communities. But yet, they will tell us to work hard and stay in school and never give up and one day we too can become a star. And they know that shit is bullshit but they still sale it because if we believe it then they keep their false image of royalty and we keep hustling towards the same damn fantasy. But these celebrities have expiration dates. They are used and thrown away promptly and in the worst way.” – Irik Robinson
