And then, when we start to enter, they tried to keep us out of it. They start inventing words as you know, capitalist you know, that’s how things are. At the end of the day, you know, we’ve been called ‘n**ger’ and ‘monkeys’ and shit. I couldn’t care less; those words you all cococt. You all need to think of more grounded words. Internet users were confused when they heard that the singer-entrepreneur, who is estimated to be worth $1.3 billion, equated capitalist with the N-word. Many noticed that the Roc Nation founder is also a capitalist, considering that he collected a distinction in piles of a large number of dollars.

Jay Z is so disappointing because he turned into the ppl he hated and he doesn’t even see it. like and you can blame his upbringing but there is rlly a deeper moral issue when someone compares the word capitalist with nig * er.

The hip billionaire’s comments drew a backlash from certain individuals who lashed out at him for comparing being called a capitalist to being called a racial slur. Jay Z really was on that Space crying about us calling him a capitalist (he is). Then I tried to say that calling rich black people capitalists is like the n-word. LMAOOO wrote one individual. A few fans have pointed out that Jay Z is legitimately being known as a capitalist since he entered into a multi-year partnership with the NFL, which will undoubtedly add more cash to the bank.
Jay Z just said that you made up the word capitalist because we are jealous of a Black man who gets money 💀 Like sir, people are literally dying and he’s really trying to play woe is me.

For the individuals who do not know, the NFL got a monstrous reaction to their treatment of the San Franciso 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Colin Kaepernick reported that he was actually kicked out of the league after pointing out racial injustice and police brutality. Netizens proceeded to list vast examples of America’s highest dollar rapper trying to prove his free capitalist proclivities.

Jay-Z is a hardened capitalist. And to be a successful capitalist as a back man in the white man’s world- you have to be a “sellout.” There is no way around it. Empathy and justice cannot survive the onslaught of capitalist realism
