Black Boys Video banned--Why?

Grime artist Bashy recently released a powerful video titled "Black Boys" in celebration of Black History Month. It was BANNED by OFCOM, a media watchdog, for claims that the video is racist. You watch for yourself.

Hope you watched it already, because I'm about to speak on it. From my viewpoint, the video is what people need to be seeing. There are no racist undertones or overtones present in any of the lyrics or images in the video, so what is OFCOM talking about?

People watch out, the witch hunt for Black people is on and popping again. No, I'm not talking about a nigga getting caught with guns w/silencers(though if that shit don't reek of hip hop police, I don't know what does). I'm talking about hanging a noose on Tupac's statue. I'm talking about shooting an unarmed groom-to-be 50(FIFTY) fucking times. I'm talking about attacking the use of a word, and not the ignorance and poverty that nurtures the use of that word.

For those white folks that are tired of hearing about race and black people, FUCK YOU for FIVE HUNDRED YEARS. Had black people received reparations of any sort like the JEWS and JAPANESE, then I could understand not wanting to hear shit. But the simple fact of the matter is that folks in the hood are dying to obtain shit that is commonplace amongst many whites. Yeah, you may live in a trailer park, but at least you OWN that shit. A regular hood brother will dream of having his own apartment to rent, and if he gets a car, SHHIIIITTT, 'we movin' on up!'.

Should white people get up and give black people all the shit they could be owed? Hell no. Every man/woman gotta get theirs for themselves. But all I'm saying is don't stop a brother/sister from getting theirs on some hater shit. If the boy Bashy makes a positive song about Black boys to uplift his folk, what business do you have banning that shit? No business motherfucker! Not when you got Soldier Boy skeeting all over the fucking place.
