Read a Book

Submitted by: buddy 10 years ago in Funny

I guess the folks at BET think this is the way to get kids to read. Warning: adult language.

Though I do have one other thing to point-out: this is what happens when black culture is so paranoid of practicing and/or benefiting from anything considered to be `white` that they go out of their way to `negrotize` our every practical institution, in this case literacy.

First of all, XX, the people who made this are just a racist as anyone. Second, there are very few actual "African Americans" in the United States. African Americans are people who came from Africa and became Americans. Most of them would look at this and be ashamed. These are just people whose skin are black who are capitalizing on the ignorance of a vast amount of black people. The only benefit we may see from this is the potential for well read racist black people who like to curse and say the "N" word a lot.

For all you guys who are being racist for the fact that this was suppose to be a joke, calm down. It was funny, if you don`t want to listen to it, by the fact of what they`re saying, just leave it alone, some african american people on this site can be offended. Not right, gah. >=o =]]!

I could not even watch it all the way through I think my ears are bleeding. This is the polar opposite of anything I would want to watch on this known universe because it combines two of my least favorite things, rap and preachy things telling kids to read and be good and crap. Plus it was just plain stupid.

this made my day too.
i f*cking hate black people like that.. who get all pissed at stereotypes, but yet feel the need to walk around bagging their pants, wearing grills, and listening to crappy rap music like that.

this was awesome. i should blast this with a huge speaker while driving on a road trip all through California and, especially, Oakland :)

-Hey does anyone know what show that was from? I`d like to check it out. Oh and books are cool as long as it doesn`t interfere with keeping your pimp hand strong!-

It`s not a show, it`s a dude named D`mite. You can listen to some of his other songs on
notarapper.com
This is the only funny one I heard, though.

Of course it`s a joke, people.

Not like anyone that`s speaking down on it listens to rap, but right in the beginning he says:
"I usually do songs wit like, hooks and concepts, and sh*t right? But F*ck that, I`m tryin to go platinum!"
Poking fun at the fact that mainstream rap sucks balls.

...Who is this supposed to appeal to? Most parents would never let their kids watch it, and if they did I`m sure they wouldn`t understand what`s going on. And it`s supposed to appeal to teenagers, well if you don`t know to brush your teeth, wear deodarant, etc. aren`t you a lost cause already?

Please let this be a joke.

if this is not meant to be an ironic video I really think that the makers are complete morons...

What is good about telling kids that they should read if you show some gangstas shooting, spanking women and stuff like that...

Apparently, I was wrong. Rap CAN get stupider and more repetitive. When the h*ll is it going to FINALLY DIE?

The animation was weird too, it reminded me of a Gorillaz music video/Ren and Stimpy episode. Not saying anything bad about either, I love them both.

Very odd video... but what does this have to do with BET?

I didn`t see any indication that BET was involved... unless it was shown on BET...

and if I`m right and this has nothing to do with BET, it`s just racist, the post, not the video

R_U_Kidding, I want to agree with you. I really do. But believing it isn`t presented in an ironic fashion just makes me crack up hysterically. Then I cry a bit.

I rather liked the Clockwork Orange reference. :-D
But it`s hard to tell if the video`s makers are being ironic and/or making fun of attempts to appeal to youth, or if they seriously think this will appeal to youth. My Vote: Ironic.

Funny, although stupid and repetitive.

Remember kids, you have to read a BOOK (not a magazine), drink water, raise your kids, and brush your teeth, but it doesn`t matter how many times you say "Motherf*ck" of " N*gga", as long as you`re trying to motivate teenagers.
