The scoop: Black twitter started trending with the satirical hashtag #RapAlbumsThatCausedSlavery on this morning after a panel on MSNBC managed to blame rap the racist vid from SAE.

The Context: MSNBC’s Morning Joe crew said hip hop music’s “garbage” lyrics inspired an Oklahoma fraternity’s racist chant about lynching African-Americans.

The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol added “Popular culture becomes a cesspool, a lot of corporations profit off it, and then people are surprised when some drunk 19-year-old kids repeat what they’ve been hearing.” 

Joe went on to say “the kids who are buying hip hop… a white audience, and they hear this over and over again.”



So the Twitter squad quickly created a satrical hashtag to mock the ridiculousness they just spewed on national tv. See the best tweets below.
