I Know It's A Good Look To Have a Centrist Latina To be Considered For Souter's Old Job But Soulja Boy is Still An Embarrassment!

After this latest appearance on The View, it becomes harder to justify the rapper, Soulja Boy's rise to stardom. But there is one thing that is for certain, the minstrel industry continues to be unaffected by our nation's current economic downturn. I suspect that the The View's producers (and White audience) find Soulja's ascription to excessive jewelry and poor diction authentically urban (or is that urbane), if not endearing. Truth be told, I would also suspect that some Blacks (of various ages. if you believe Whoopie and Sherry Shepard) are also ready to excuse and pander to the Soulja Circus. Amazingly, based on the comments in Youtube in response to the above clip, Soulja Boy's ability to make money supersedes any notion of the need for more respectful, erudite and young Black representation. Again, am I not understanding of the youth demographic or is a fool a fool? What say you? Up next....enter Judge Sonia Sotomayor.
