So says Hip-Hop Minista Paul Scott, who discusses hardcore news and views with a gangsta attitude on his website nowarningshotsfired.com.
Scott believes that the election of Americas first African-American president puts Februarys Black History Month celebrations in danger of cancellation, since many pundits and citizens believe blacks have now finished overcoming racial obstacles.
For this reason, Scott is calling for a Black History Bailout to protect the holiday.
He says, Because people keep saying that black is the new white, they think, Why is Black History Month needed now? But we need it now more than ever because people think we dont need it. Having a black president is a good thing, but it doesnt erase 400 years of oppression.
The hip-hop youth culture would especially benefit from keeping Black History alive, since, as Scott puts it, They see wearing baggy pants as representing black culture, and its not.
