Plies Says Black People Should Start Making Their Own Demands: I Never Had An Option When It Came To The Pledge Of Allegiance
Plies is back with another message.
Algernod Lanier Washington, better known as Plies, 45, wants Black people to start making their own demands. In a new video posted to his Instagram, the Shawty rapper explains why black people need to start standing up for themselves and their kids’ education.
In the video, Plies says,
“I hope nobody takes this the wrong way ‘cause I don’t mean it in a racial way. This message is to all my Black folks…The same way we sit and watch other races tell school teachers, the school system what not to teach their kids and what they don’t want their kids learning, i.e Critical Race Theory, let me say this to my people: let’s stop living by other people’s demands.”

“Things that you don’t want for your kids, let’s start having the same got d*** conversation.”
Citing his childhood, Plies shared,
“It’s just like how I told myself from elementary school to middle school, through High school, I had to stand and put my hand over my heart and repeat some god**** words that nobody ever asked my mama, did me, her, or anybody agree with. It was forced on us.”
“You can say it patriotic, you can say whatever you want to say but I never had an option when it came to the pledge of allegiance, [or] standing up for the national anthem. It’s words somebody else wrote.”
Plies said he is not mad at other races for making their demands but just wanted to encourage black people to have their own.
