â€¦Wes Anderson doesnâ€™t make â€œwhiteâ€ movies. You win. They are incredibly diverse. Stop with the e-mails. And this should tell you something about standing in lines: I was waiting in line at the book store, and overheard two progressive housewives talking about Cornel West â€œrappingâ€ on Real Time with Bill Maher. They referred to itÂ as â€œreally cool.â€ I incorrectly figured that they knew the difference between Dr. Cornel West and Michael Eric Dyson (author of over-academic Hip-Hop books that I donâ€™t want to read and a man that finds the existence of Benjamin Franklin biographies to be â€œracistâ€), the latter of whom DID recentlyÂ make a complete ass of himself on the show, rapping aboutÂ Alexander Hamilton being a â€œpimp.â€ Maybe Cornel West dropped some science on Bill Maher as well, though I donâ€™t feel like IM-DIBBING him to find out (he did in fact, put out a Hip-Hop album this year). My style of blogournalism includes using misguided strangers as primary sources. Thatâ€™s what youâ€™re going to get here at failedpilot.com
I did enjoy Maher referring to 90% of Hip-Hop as â€œaffirmative action for the ego.â€ Duh, but nicely put.
