Rapper Snoop Dogg isn’t exactly the most politically correct person on the planet, and the message he had for his followers about the remake of the 1977 Roots miniseries is evidence of it. In an expletive-laced video posted online, he stunned liberal Hollywood with what he had to say about the series being released on Memorial Day.

“I’m sick of this s**t. How the f*** are they going to put ‘Roots’ on on Memorial Day?” he said. “They going to just keep beating that s**t into our heads about how they did us, huh?”
Snoop’s biggest problem is that the liberals in Hollywood keep “showing the abuse” that blacks endured “hundreds and hundreds of years ago” while ignoring the many accomplishments from blacks ever since.
“When you all going to make a series about the success that black folks is having?” he asked. “The only success we have is ‘Roots’ and ’12 Years a Slave’ and s**t like that, huh?”
Continuing with his impassioned message, Snoop urged his supporters to follow his lead and boycott such broadcasts to instead celebrate things that are happening today.
“I ain’t watching that s**t, and I advise you motherf***ers as real n*****s like myself; f*** them television shows,” Snoop said. “Let’s create our own s**t based on today, how we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what’s real. F*** that old s**t.”
While his language may have been a bit strong, his message is spot-on. It seems as if the leftist media loves to pound it into the heads of black people that their ancestors weren’t treated well, as if such atrocities have anything to do with today.
Meanwhile, there’s people like Snoop himself who have worked hard and could be an inspiration for others to succeed, but such messages are often overlooked because they don’t fall in-line with the narrative being pushed. Instead of trying to convince people they’re oppressed, the left would be better off trying to lift people up and show them what they’re capable of with a little effort.
After all, the more someone hears they’re a victim of something, the more they believe they’re incapable of succeeding, which only ends with them giving up because they see no way to get ahead. Those responsible should be ashamed of themselves.
