Rapper Eminem accuses Trump of racism

Initial response to the rap was overwhelmingly positive, with praise from several celebrities ranging from basketball star LeBron James and actress Debra Messing to NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who initiated the NFL protest last season.

EminemDuring a profane laced routine at the BET Hip-Hop awards last night, rapper Eminem accuses Trump of racism and attacked his policy on immigration.

From Steve Bannon to the KKK to tiki torches at Charlottesville to the NFL to immigration to Trump’s Wall the rapper unleashed his anger and in the set, which lasted just over four minutes, he made fun of the President’s  frequent trips to his golf resorts and talked about his continued attacks on NFL players protesting police brutality against blacks by kneeling during the National Anthem.

“Now, if you’re a black athlete / You’re a spoiled little brat for tryna use your platform or your stature / To try to give those a voice who don’t have one / He says, ‘You’re spittin’ in the face of vets who fought for us,’ you bastard / Unless you’re a POW who’s tortured and battered / ’Cause to him, you’re zeros / ’Cause he don’t like his war heroes captured / That’s not disrespecting the military.”

Pacing back and forth and looking at times like he’s sparring with the cameraman filming him, he continues.

“From his endorsement of Bannon / Support from the Klansmen / Tiki torches in hand for the soldier that’s black / And comes home from Iraq / And is still told to go back to Africa.”

He ends the rap with a proclamation: “The rest of America stand up / We love our military, and we love our country / But we (expletive) hate Trump.”

Initial response to the rap was overwhelmingly positive, with praise from several celebrities ranging from basketball star LeBron James and actress Debra Messing to NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who initiated the NFL protest last season.
