“Rapper” KRS-One says that blacks cheered on 9/11 when 3,000+ Americans were slaughtered. Mr. One made this comment at a New Yorker Festival panel discussion – undoubtedly a cesspool of like-minded anti-Americanism.
I should have known that Mr. One sucked when he did that shitty duet with Michael Stipe and REM.
The hip-hop anarchist has declared his solidarity with al-Qaida by asserting that he and other African-Americans “cheered when 9-11 happened,” reports the New York Daily News.
“I say that proudly,” the Boogie Down Productions founder went on, insisting that, before the attack, security guards kept Blacks out of the World Trade Center “because of the way we talk and dress.
“So when the planes hit the building, we were like, ‘Mmmm – justice.'”
The atrocity of 9-11 “doesn’t affect us the hip-hop community,” he said. “9-11 happened to them, not us,” he added, explaining that by “them” he meant “the rich … those who are oppressing us. RCA or BMG, Universal, the radio stations.”
I remember having this same discussion with my friend Leo Oshkosh. We agreed that the American left would quickly sweep 9/11 under the rug – and that the majority of the downtrodden would silently celebrate because the people who died in the towers were only rich people and Jews – the two classes most vilified by the left. If you’re white, rich, Jewish, heterosexual and male, then you might as well be given the death penalty just for existing in the mind of the American leftist.
Mr. One continues vomiting forth stupidity:
“America has to commit suicide if the world is to be a better place.” This comment drew a heated response fellow panelist and former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, who yelled, “That is wrong, man. Suicide is not the answer.”
What the hell does that mean? Suicide is not the answer? Why would you ever have a panel discussion with a bunch of rappers & musicians? All you’re going to get in a situation like that is brainless nonsense upchucked from one moron to another while the nitwits in the media cheer the “artists'” collective brilliance.
Mr. One and I agree on one thing – get-out-the-vote campaigns are for chumps.
[Mr. One] also sneered at efforts by other rappers to get young people to vote.
“Voting in a corrupt society adds more corruption,” he added.
So, Mr. One has unintentionally joined the Six Meat Buffet Stop the Vote campaign.

Mr. One has responded to his quote being “taken out of context”. The only problem is, due to his own stupidity, he just made it worse.
“I was just as saddened as everyone else on 9/11,” he continued. “However, for many of us that were racially profiled and harassed by the World’s (sic) Trade Center’s security and the police patrolling that area as well as the thousands of American protesters that spoke out against the World Trade Organization months before in Seattle, Washington there was a sense of justice, a sense of change, a wake up call watching the twin towers fall.”
So, because of the racial profiling allegedly going on at the WTC, it was justice that 3,000 + people were slaughtered. That makes sense to me.
“I was making an objective point about how many Hiphoppas as well as the oppressed peoples of the world felt that day,” KRS continued. “I am a philosopher and a critical thinker, I speak truth and I urge people to think critically about themselves and their environment. Yes, my words are strong. Yes, my views are controversial. But to call me a terrorist is simply wrong!”
Well, it’s technically true that Mr. One is not a terrorist, because he doesn’t have the guts to strap a bomb belt to his waist and go blow up those racial profilers himself. However, for Mr. One to claim that he was taken out of context and then come out with a rebuttal that only exacerbates the situation, makes Mr. One look something less than intelligent.
