|Miss Kieran Yates, stupid chick who writes for the Guardian UK.|
|Very expensive fungus.|
From the article: "With his latest truffle extravaganza, what Jay-Z is in effect saying is that the world of decadent foodstuffs is not off limits – not to him, or to hip-hop culture. Assumptions are slowly being challenged."
The whole point of this woman's article is the last sentence. "Assumptions are slowly being challenged." This "challenging assumptions" business is the root of the Post-Modern Art weed which is strangling Western culture these days. This need to "transgress" against the "norms" of society, to chastise Westerners for their beliefs and the way they take certain values and behaviors for granted, it forms the whole foundation and most of the body of work performed by modern writers and journalists.
|Super rich guy.|
|Jay Z's audience demographic. Nice dental work.|
|Violent assholes, Ol' Skool style.|
The Vikings used to like bling too. They liked it so much they used to make piles of it.
|Viking hoard of bling.|
Some guys used to bling-out the skulls of their enemies and display them.
|Pimp my cranium, baby.|
|The guy in the middle has really big balls. Or wants you to think so.|
Now, its entirely possible that putting Mr. Jay Z and "barbarian" in the same sentence is unfair. Mr. Z might well be a man of discerning taste and refinement. I'm sure I don't know, and I'm very sure I don't care. At all. Because this isn't about Mr. Jay Z.
Its about little Miss Kieran Yates, the Guardian, and the Western Left in general and their fetishistic celebration of BARBARISM. The very idea that rappers [aka violent @ssholes] are trying to expand their notion of bling, or as they used to say in the old days "booty", "swag", "loot" and all the other synonyms for "something valuable which was probably stolen" is not something that should be getting celebrated in a civilized society. Barbarian activities and barbaric practices are NOT GOOD THINGS if you're trying to keep a civilization going.
Therein lies the issue. Little Miss Kieran Yates and company are not trying to keep civilization going. They are trying to BREAK it and replace it with barbarism. When white people buy truffles that's Imperialist hegemony. When black rappers do it, its -cool-.
Here's what I want to know, little Miss Kieran Yates: is it still going to be cool when rappers start wearing the finger bones of their enemies?
|Paris runway next year?|
|It goes with my shoes, dahling.|
YouTubes of counting coup before bludgeoning/shooting/stabbing their foes to death, hot or not?
|That ain't horse hair.|
Ear collections, the next must-have item for the aspiring rap musician?
|These will look good on my belt.|
