In the world of pop culture:
The American rap/hip-hop group Onyx was supposed to perform a concert in Kiev yesterday, but it didn’t happen. The concert was shut down by Ukrainian white-supremacist activists. The activists, self-declared “Defenders of the White Race”, complained that Onyx is racist and demeans white people. Just before the start of the concert, the activists, wearing their usual masks, burst into the “Sentrum” club and demanded that the concert be shut down. This demand was met by the frightened management (after quickly changing their underwear). After this incident, the Negroes from Onyx along with their special guest “Snak the Ripper” were forced to leave the establishment, abandoning a sold-out concert.
Now, mind you, the popular hip-hop/gangsta group has been performing successful concerts in Kiev as far back as 2010, as shown by this clip of them performing their masterpiece “BACDAFUCUP”:
In fact, even after the Maidan Revolution which brought neo-Nazis to power, Onyx performed a successful concert in Kiev in September 2014, where they showed off another hit song,”Fuck da Police”. Highly appropriate, I might add, in a country where the new government just came to power by kicking the shit out of cops and burning them alive.
Does Onyx Hate White People?
But as to the key question, and examining the accusation that was made: Are Onyx actually racist? They do use the n-word a lot, that’s true, but the specific accusation is that they oppress the WHITE race.
Full disclosure: I never heard of these guys until …. [checking watch] …. approximately 20 minutes ago, when I set out to write this post. But don’t worry: I did a lot of research in that short amount of time!
And my research shows that they ARE racist. Examples of racial stereotyping against white-skinned people:
Exhibit A: In this video, the white guy, “Snak” is depicted as a criminal vandal:
Exhibit B: In this other video, the white kid is depicted as lazy and shiftless, whereas the black guys are already up and busy with their work:
In conclusion: Onyx hate white people, and the Nazis had every right to forcibly cancel their concert. The only remaining question is: Will the people who bought tickets, get a refund?
