Hang White People? By Richard Miller


 Many rap songs feature sentiments about killing white police and depict the killing of specific individual  White people, usually these songs are American and are just consumed in the culture, even though if the races were reversed, there would be hell to pay. For shock! horror! consider this clip from a major artist, and then consider if our Spenglerian vision is too “pessimistic” or not.






         However, in life things get more complex, especially in Europe:


Prosecutors are calling for a suspended €5,000 (£4,520) fine for French rapper Nick Conrad, who is on trial for incitement to murder in Paris after he published an online video entitled "Hang White People".


The music video shows the rapper acting out the kidnap, torture and hanging of a white man.


The lyrics, which sparked outrage, call for white babies to be killed.


Mr Conrad denies the charge, and says the song is a comment on racism.


The nine-minute video, first published on YouTube in September, was quickly suspended for violating the company's terms of service.


It depicts a white man being shot and tortured by the rapper and an accomplice. He is forced to bite the pavement and is kicked in the head before being hanged.


One section of the lyrics reads: "I go to the nurseries, I kill the white babies. Catch them quick and hang their parents!"


Anti-racism groups have called the clip an incitement to violence and racial hatred.




         I think though that freedom of speech should extend to all, and the acid test of this liberalism is supporting people who are acting against oneself. Thus, the rapper should not be prosecuted in my opinion, even though his position is repugnant. It is good for conservative to wake in fright.
