G Herbo’s Thoughts On Black Lives Matter: Nobody Cares About Sh*t Unless It’s Beneficial To Them
Rapper G Herbo had a few things to get off his chest regarding the Black Lives Matter movement and the ridicule and scrutiny celebrities are under behind what they choose to post and not post on their social media pages.
On June 17th, the Chicago rapper posted a picture, voicing the sentiment of how we are “all yelling Black Lives Matter” and posed the question:
“Are you really willing to sacrifice something you have or love to save somebody else?”
He continues his statement in the caption that reads,
“THINKING OF ALL KIND OF KRAZY SH*T & THIS IS RANDOM BUT ITS REAL TRUE… IK THAT NOBODY REALLY CARES! NOBODY CARES ABOUT SH*T UNLESS ITS BENEFICIAL TO THEM, THE SAME THING THATS GOING ON IN THE WORLD TODAY HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR DECADES TO COME…”
G Herbo then calls attention to people using the movement and its heightened relevancy to garner buzz or boost their following.
“BUT NOW THAT CARING MAY GET YOU A LITTLE SUPPORT OR EVEN ATTENTION THAT YOU NEVER HAD BEFORE ITS EVERYBODY’S ISSUE..”
In the middle of his lengthy statement, he also takes the time to address the perception of what a celebrity’s Instagram should look like at this time.
“… NOW ITS NOT COOL FOR CELEBRITIES OR PPL OF INFLUENCE TO TALK ABOUT OUR JEWELRY OR OUR NICE SH*T ANYMORE BECAUSE ITS PPL IN THE WORLD WHO ACTUALLY HURTING SO THEN PPL LIKE ME WHO ALWAYS HAD IT BUT NEVER GAVE A F*CK ABOUT IT ENOUGH ONLY BECAUSE I FELT SO CONNECTED TO THE PPL WHO HURT…”
Herb closes his statement by acknowledging that people hurting is nothing new, but he wants to find a way to move forward.
“NEWS FLASH THESE PPL IN THE WORLD ALWAYS BEEN HURTING! NOT JUST FINANCIALLY BUT MENTALLY THE MOST!! SO IN A NEW WORLD WHERE LUXURY & POSSESSIONS DON’T MEAN SH*T BUT NOW MORE SO SELF DISCIPLINE MORALS UNITY & RESPECT, WHERE DO WE START? WHAT DO WE DO NOW??”
