The gangster Rapper previously apologised for his controversial comments about the broadcaster - SocialNetworkTrends 


While everyone was praising Snoop Dogg for publically calling an older Black woman out of her name and threatening her, we found ourselves appalled by his actions and we let it be known online AND offline. 

Of course we were  mostly met with backlash. We were accused of defending Gail King and justifying her insensitivity and perceived malice--which was far from the case.

We were addressing Snoop's disrespectful approach. He is considered a cultural elder of the Black community. They call him UNCLE Snoop. 

This was an opportunity to lead by example. Not only were Black men watching, Black women were watching and the way he went about outrightly calling an older Black woman out of her name--and even threatening her to some extent--was obviously triggering.

As a Black man who has made a career off of calling women out of their name and emulating pimp culture, you would think he'd know better... right?


We didn’t like how he initially called her out in the black community and then as a woman and then verbally attacked her person, called her degrading names threatened her and encouraged others to threaten her life. 


What was worse was black men were saying it was a difference of opinion and he apologized so now Gayle should apologize to him. That was indicative of a huge problem of basic respect for women.

Also people were fast to say oh he’s a good husband and Dad and loves his mama so he should get a pass. He apologized for the wrong reasons. The behavior itself unacceptable, yet accepted. 

All we know is, if our kid ever spoke to a woman that way we’d snatch him up by the back of his neck. If any man spoke to ours that way he better bounce before ..


FOH

In fact, the very few people that agreed with me were mostly Black women. I promised to make a more in depth status discussing the whole King/Kobe situation but I decided to let things develop further because I knew I wasn't crazy.

Fast forward weeks later and it turns out I wasn't so wrong after all. Snoop Dogg's own mother chided him and now Jada Pinkett Smith recently confronted Snoop and articulated the context and consequences  of Snoop's actions and what they represent within the Black community.

THIS is what we were  talking about...



Snoop dogg , a huge Kobe Bryant fan , snapped on Gayle king because she brought up a rape case from 2003 that was dismissed 17 YEARS AGO  in an extremely sad/disrespectful attempt to ruin that man’s image. How the fuck did you feel like he was talking to you? This is a joke
