Snoop Dogg on Condoleeza Rice

3 April 2008 8 Comments

“They need us to manipulate and do the bad shit because we conversate and our colour is friendly with other peoples. This colour” – he traces a loving finger down his cheek – “is friendly with every country. That white colour” – he points at me – “ain’t friendly. The white man be threatening the Indian. The white man be threatening the slaves. The white man be threatening the Australians . . . that face ain’t to be trusted. That’s why Condoleeza does all the conversatin’ and all the chores around the world.”

Thembi Says: Interesting and disturbingly valid viewpoint. I’ve long since given up on encouraging conjugation of the verb “to be,” but as I will repeat until I am blue in the face, conversate is not a word.

    “… threatening the Australians??

    ^ Oh, I think I just realized what Snoop was talking about with Australia. The Aborigines.

    I’ve speculated that Obama’s skin color might give us a leg up with some nations, but it wouldn’t surprise me if it also closed other doors.

  • Malcolm said:

    I agree with what Snoop is saying. However, the use of the non-word “conversate” bothers me too!

  • Invisible Woman said:

    Him using “conversate” is the least of his problems in that mangled conversation. But you get his point, so I guess that’s what’s inportant….

  • LaJane Galt said:

    Why is somebody asking this man questions, period?

  • Anonymiss said:

    Wait a minute. Am I agreeing with him?
