Racist ‘MoJoe’ Blaming Racist Frat Rant On Rap [VIDEO]

Stewart trashes MSNBCβ€˜s Morning Joe on Wednesday for trying to say they were trying to blame rap music for the racist University of Oklahoma fraternity song caught on video.

β€œTwo things: first of all, the kids on that bus weren’t repeating a rap song that they had heard,” Stewart said. β€œThey were gleefully performing one of their fraternity’s old, let’s call them anti-Negro spirituals, featuring a word that pre-dates rap. And probably folk. And thought. Black rappers did not introduce that word into the vernacular. And second of all, how come when conservatives talk about African-Americans, they say β€˜These people need to take responsibility for themselves, pull up those pants, get a job.’ But when white people do something racist, they’re all, β€˜You can’t blame them. How can those poor children know wrong from right, after being driven to madness by the irresistible power of the hippity-hoppity?’”

While co-host Mika Brzezinski tried to argue otherwise following public criticism, Stewart showed footage of host Joe Scarborough and guest William Kristol complaining about rap music being sold to a β€œwhite audience” that, they argued, would invariably repeat what they heard.
