T.I.'s Message For Black Men Has Some Fans Upset And Offended
T.I. has always been an advocate for the black community and while they appreciated this, his other fans don't seem to be that happy reading his latest post. Some of his fans and followers are bashing him for only focusing on dark-skinned people.
People are very upset in the comments as you will see below.
Somoene said: 'You talk a whole lot about segregation in this country.. but yet you do a whole lot of segregating yourself.. 🤔'
Another follower bashed Tip and posted this: 'Dam bruh are you all about just African Americans? Or unity and equality of all people? I can understand the whole preaching empowerment to the African American community seeing as you are apart of that yourself however from what I’ve seen on your posts and words it seems as if you ONLY seem to talk highly of that specified demographic of people as opposed to using your social influence on equality for all. I have been a fan since you came out, follow and support you and as a minority, myself in this great beautiful Country one can’t take how you present yourself as someone who ONLY believes in “Black excellence”. Correct me if my perspectives wrong?'
A person also wrote: 'Not just black men but all real men🤙🏽🤙🏽🤙🏽'
Someone else said: 'One day hopefully we’ll all live in peace together! Cause there’s really only one race and that’s the human race.'
A follower told Tip that 'People like this is the real reason certain types of black people are always screaming racial stuff.'
One Instagrammer told Tip that they lost their respect for the rapper: 'You're so concerned about your people so why aren’t you supporting Trump. The Left has held the black community down for sooo long. Trump wants the black community to stop being controlled and held down. He wants more black owners & more black businesses. The left wants everyone on welfare. They want to control u. Look up what Malcom X said about Liberals. No sane person would vote for the Democrats. They started the KKK. You have lost all my respect- if you really cared about America u would be supporting Trump. Very sad.'
Somoene said: 'A BLACK man cant show LOVE and APPRECIATION for other BLACK men without other races feeling UNCOMFORTABLE and needing to be included even when they enjoy and benefit from a whole SYSTEM of comfort and Privileges from NOT being BLACK 365 days a year. 🗣HE SAID BLACK MEN AND THAT'S WHO HE MEANT.'
What do you think about Tip's post and the people's reactions?
