'Becky with the Good Hair' as Racist as 'Tawana with the Brillo Pad Hair' Shame on Beyonce

By Robert Paul Reyes

By the time you read it, I`ll be far away
I`m far away
But I ain`t fuc*ing with nobody
Let`s have a toast to the good life
Suicide before you see this tear fall down my eyes
Me and my baby, we gon` be alright
We gon` live a good life
Big homie better grow up
Me and my whoadies `bout to stroll up
I see them boppers in the corner
They sneaking out the back door
He only want me when I`m not there
He better call Becky with the good hair
He better call Becky with the good hair

"Sorry" Lyrics from the visual album "Lemonade" by  Beyonce

Lemonade is a video album that debuted on HBO as a one-hour film, it has been described as everything from a feminist manifesto to a black power anthem to an Illuminati-inspired paean to the devil. But in reality it`s a classic tale of hell hath no fury like a woman scorned dressed up in the garb of feminism and black lives matter, with a lot of Illuminati imagery thrown in for good measure.

Jay Z has 99 bitches and Beyonce is just one of them, and "Lemonade" is a grammatically challenged, obscenity-lace screed of jealousy and vitriol aimed at her wayward husband.

I am not going to waste my time analyzing "Lemonade", I have 99 better ways to spend my time. This article focuses on the lyric "He better call Becky with the good hair" from the song "Sorry."

This is one of the most patently racist lyrics ever penned, racism is odious whether it emanates from a white or black person.

This verse is dripping with self-loathing, Beyonce didn`t write Becky with the golden hair, Becky with the silky hair, or have a dozen other adjectives that could be used to describe beautiful Caucasian hair. She wrote "Becky with the good hair", as opposed to what, Shamika with the bad hair? It`s evident that Beyonce hates her natural black hair, that`s why she has 99 wigs, an ungodly number of them blonde. Is there anything more pathetic and ridiculous than a black woman sporting a blond wig?

Beyonce`s next step in her devolution is to bleach her skin, like Lil` Kim and of course Michael Jackson. Regardless how white Beyonce desperately attempts to make herself, Jay Z is still going to opt for the genuine article.

It`s not uncommon for artists to use their romantic life as fodder for lyrics, witness Taylor Swift, but Beyonce should aim her venom at Jay Z instead of dismissing all white women as "Becky with the good hair."

Imagine the outcry if Swift`s boyfriend cheated on her with a black woman, and she wrote the lyric "Tawana with the Brillo Pad hair."

Racism is racism is racism, and it`s not OK to hate on white people, period, end of story!
