Musician Makes Ass out of Self

Via Vodkapundit: 9/11 was a great day for the black community.

If Osama bin Laden ever buys a rap album, he'll probably start with a CD by KRS-One.

The hip-hop anarchist has declared his solidarity with al-Qaida by asserting that he and other African-Americans "cheered when 9-11 happened," reports the New York Daily News.

I didn't hear too many African-Americans cheering on 9/11. Was I not listening hard enough?

"I say that proudly," the Boogie Down Productions founder went on, insisting that, before the attack, security guards kept Blacks out of the World Trade Center "because of the way we talk and dress.

"So when the planes hit the building, we were like, 'Mmmm - justice.' "

The atrocity of 9-11 "doesn't affect us the hip-hop community," he said. "9-11 happened to them, not us," he added, explaining that by "them" he meant "the rich ... those who are oppressing us. RCA or BMG, Universal, the radio stations."

OK, here's the deal from now on. We'll let you in any building you wish to enter, regardless of how you talk and dress. However, you can't use our roads - they're for us, not you. You can't eat our food. You don't like it, you can grow your own. Here's 40 acres and a mule to start you on your way. Just be careful not to injure yourself, cause you sure as hell ain't using our hospitals, you disrespectful fuck.

Gerard Baptiste,Vernon Cherry, Tarel Coleman and Andre R. Fletcher are just 4 of the African-American firefighters who rushed into the towers to help rescue the thousands who escaped. They weren't so lucky, but if they were here today I'm sure they'd happily take 5 minutes out of their day to kick your ass.

One commenter got it in one - 'Note to self... do not buy KRS-ONE CDs....'
