Lexx: In before "read a book, read a book, read a mother-farking book".


In retrospect, that video was really racist and the fact that it's by a black group doesn't really limit the racism.

I remember someone posted a video of GZA and NdGT and maybe the third guy mentioned. It was awesome, and these guys are awesome. Anything to get kids interested in science, and challenging themselves in ways they never thought possible.

Culture != race.  That video was mocking the former.

Correct.  Good lord, that video is uncomfortable as hell.

Unconvincing excuse. It's terrible what they do, what they do, what they do in this video

Some people just need to be told bluntly. That video was always A+ work.Plus, if I've learned anything from the George Zimmerman trial it is that black people can say anything they want and it isn't racist.

Too bad they can't get the kids interested in proper grammar along with that.  They'd have my complete and absolute respect if they did.

Good thing nobody gives a shiat about having Hawnkee's respect.

So American Blacks suffer from alarmingly high rates of poor health, illiteracy, father-less children, and poverty, and when a Black group produces a PSA in a style that is culturally digestible to Blacks that advocates healthy eating, reading, familial responsibility, and proper investment, then that's racist? That's a crazy definition of racism right there.

A lot of these farking comments are absolute bullshiat.  Yeah, some of those groups weren't has good as others but you know what?  Those kids tried their damndest.  They have more brains, hearts and  energy than I usually see in a FARK comments section  (exception:  The poor fool who got his nuts stuck in the chair).  The racism thing?  Really?  This is a geek/nerd talent show.  I'm so glad I'm not some xenophobic, bitter, basement dwelling person.  I can appreciate the effort and time they all put into this.  Some of you really need to go outside and talk to people who don't look like yourselves.

Let the flame war/ 'snarketytfarker is a stupid asshole' posts commence.

I truly hope you are all having a lovely day.  It's hot in Seattle today.  It is just now cooling down.

I liked the songs about gravity and rocks and the planets too.

Every attempt so far to make science or learning cool has crashed and burned, but we can always hope for an exception.
Good for them, I guess.

Call me when China and India start teaching their kids Rapping to Science.

Seemto remember an old episode of the Cosby Show where the daughter was rapping and espousing African rhythms and oral traditions .  Bill just rolled his eyes and said something about reading the muthrafarking book.
