Racist White Girl Group on Billboard Charts.....A Follow-Up to My Previous "Some STILL View Us This Way" post.

This is truly disturbing, and unreal!

By Claudia Rosett and George Russell

What does it mean for Black America that a hate preaching music duo could debut on the Billboard albums chart?

This week, the Billboard albums chart's top five is packed with nothing but new releases, with Bakersfield , CA Pop duo Prussian Blue shocking the nation by taking ..4 after selling 91, 000 copies of "End of A Black World" its first week out. The album is also serving as the soundtrack to a remake of one of the most controversial movies in U.S. history "Birth Of A Nation".

"End of A Black World" is the third and most successful album for 12 and 13 year old Lamb and Lynx, who have recently relocated to a private compound in Salt Lake City, Utah after their last album gained them national attention and death threats. The girls were lost, especially in December of 2005 when
their father was shot twice by an AME Minister. However, their father survived and their career was revived by what seems to be an unfathomable paradigm shift in American values.

"It really breaks my heart to see those two girls spewing out that kind of garbage, " said Ted Shaw, civil rights advocate and president of the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund.

"This is bullshit. Right now I am more so shocked that an album advocating the extermination of the black race could be so widely received by America , " continued Shaw, who plans to protest the girls' album and call for black artists to boycott Billboard.

Jessie Jackson of The Rainbow PUSH Coalition gave the following statement, "White America has spoken. Billboard has spoken. This is only the beginning."

The beginning is just what Lynx and Lamb, who have been nurtured on racist beliefs since birth by their mother April, are hoping for. "We hope to bring about change in our people, " said Lamb. "We hope that our album and Birth Of A Nation will show our people exactly what needs to be done to make this
country safe and white."

When asked about their inspiration for their latest efforts, Lynx gave this response. "I saw white people hating white people. I was afraid that America wanted to be black, " said Lynx. "I saw that funny nigger's show where he made a mockery of the KKK and white people were laughing. This broke my heart."

Lynx was speaking of Actor/Comedian Dave Chapelle and his comic sketch depicting a blind, African American, Ku Klux Klan leader who was unaware that he was not white. Dave Chapelle is also believed to be the inspiration of their single, "Funny Nigger, " which describes the gruesome fate of blacks who taunt whites. Dave Chapelle was not availible for comment.

Prussian Blue appear to have gone from one of America 's dirty little secrets to Pop princesses overnight. The group is now fielding offers from major record labels such as MGM and Geffen. This may be only the beginning.

I just want to know, who's the record label that produced this group, and who's the critics that ranked them high enough, or even gave them the opportunity to be on the Billboard Charts.

Umm... this is INCREDIBLY disturbing.

I know there is still racism but Jesus H. I didn't think there were still people stuck in the 1800's!!!

Someone should punch those little girls in the face. I'd be more than happy to do so.

p.s. I saw that picture... OMG I cried I was laughing so hard!!!! Thanks!! :-D

Ahmed, I'm glad you brought this to my attention. I knew nothing about it. It's very disturbing that anyone, let alone girls so young, could spew such hatred...almost unfathomable, like some adult (their mom?) is writing work for them and making them sing it. This post leaves me speechless and more than a little numb. Very, very sad.

Honestly, I couldn't read the whole post. It was sent to me from a very close friend of mine, and I was just disgusted with the content, but it was a little too good to not share with y'all. I am STILL baffled at how someone could take the time to even listen to their music, and give them a rating that places them on the Billboard Charts. It makes me question who is running the Billboard company????

This is tough to stomach, but it's not hard to believe.
It's said that this kind of offense is fueled by fear.
Maybe. But, you're right, Ahmed. Who are the people who
supported this? There must be a lot of fear in high places.

I don't know whether it's fear or not, but I'll tell you this...it is definitely stupidity!! Although there is still racism in our world, that crap is old. When are people gonna wake-up, and realize that the days of racism have past, and that they are NOT coming back?!

Wow. I am totally speechless. Honestly, I am not surprised that white people feel this way towards black. Many of our people expect that some great change in this society's beliefs were to have transpired at the turn of the century. You cannot change minds and end racism only 20 years after the end of the civil rights era. This stuff has been engrained in this country for centuries. Yet, it is still shocking that Billboard would support this, that people would support this, that radio stations would support this enough that it would even make it onto the Billboard charts. Yet again, I am not surprised that they do get support.

Hmm, I guess I wasn't as speechless as I thought. :-)
