Yes, Mark Dice has a thing for stirring the pot when it’s quiet, calm and tranquil. However, every now and then he takes a walkabout that results in a cold dose of reality for the rest of us.
Such is the case of his latest offering, “Asking White People to Read Rap Lyrics Out Loud.” Watch what happens when a bunch of run of the mill white people get a good look at what a popular rap song’s lyrics have to say.

Given the amount of time each of the people actually looked at the clipboard, and came up saying, uh, no, I can’t say that, the objection had to be in the first line. As it happens, one person said, “I can’t say the n-word,” which gives us an idea of what the objection is. Not curse words, treason, or threatening harm to the president. No, it’s “the n-word.”
White people are afraid to say it. Why? Do we not have the right to speak freely in this country? Yes, but so do the people who will destroy a person for saying the WRONG thing, or being the wrong person saying the right thing. In this case, white people are not allowed to say the “n-word.”
Well, we are, strictly speaking, but few want to face the fallout if caught on camera saying so.
What a cluster. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to free speech, but the people self censor out of fear. Or not. After all, black rappers say the n-word and a whole lot more freely in their “music” and poetry of the streets. A lot of it is violent and derogatory toward women. No white man could refer to the same behavior without being hounded out of the music business in shame.
And thanks to Mark Dice, we now have video proof that fear of speaking freely has been installed in American adults. It’s not just a teenaged phenomenon.
