Public school officials in Portland, Oregon, have been accused of “racism” after banning rap “music” from their buses after ruling its violent, racist, and sexually explicit content was inappropriate.
Although inadvertent, the move has been correctly interpreted as a rejection of popular black culture.
According to a report in the Oregon Live news service, the officials are “rethinking” their ban after the “racist” allegations were made against them.
The district had banished the so-called music from its buses, deeming the genre “inappropriate.”
Teri Brady, senior director of transportation at Portland Public Schools, sent a directive to bus drivers in March forbidding “religious, rap music, or talk show programs.”
The memo included a list of acceptable stations, broken down into three genres: pop, country, and jazz.
The media-generated “outrage” forced Portland Public Schools spokeswoman Courtney Westling to tell Oregon Live that they regretted “the way this was communicated. Our intent is to limit student exposure to religious teachings, profanity, and violent lyrics.”
This exclusion of “profanity and violent lyrics” automatically included rap, which contains the most base, primitive, and anti-white racist lyrics ever to see the light of day.
Westling said the district had received several complaints regarding the radio stations that were played on buses.
Of course, the same controlled media that is upset because this anti-white jungle cacophony has now been banned from Portland’s school buses, never makes any complaint about the frequent calls to violence against whites and women contained in rap “music.”
As a result of the media-generated “uproar,” Westling said that the “transportation department will be revising its guidance to bus drivers shortly to be more inclusive of different genres of music.”
Portland is known as the “whitest major city in America,” a description which is food for thought given that it is only 72 percent European—and even that figure includes a 10 percent Jewish population.
Oregon Live then went on to describe just some of the reasons why the Portland authorities consider rap—and implicitly, popular black culture, a social problem.
In 2006, the report said, Portland Police questioned if rap concerts were causing shootings, according to the Portland Mercury.
In 2014, after police presence cut short a Southeast Portland rap show, Portland’s Independent Police Review division examined the relationship between the police bureau and hip-hop artists.
Portland Police weren’t alone in this fear. In 2006, The Wall Street Journal reported rap concerts in Las Vegas casinos were being canceled at the last minute due to pressure from police and the state’s gaming control board, which regulates gambling.
The then-sheriff said he felt getting casinos to stop booking “gangster rap acts” was a “legitimate crime-prevention strategy.”
