Updated:Why Are We Giving Soulja Boy’s F$#@ The Troops Comment Any Attention?

Updated: Soulja Boy Apologizes

Do I believe it not really but whatever!

Also AAFES will not be selling his Album as per their FB Page:

I’ve had several emails and people ask me via Facebook how I feel about this Soulja Boy controversial lyrics situation, so I figured I would share my opinion. You should  be warned that you may be surprised at what I have to say.

Recently there has been controversy unleashed thanks to the two hit wonder and rapper “Soulja Boy”.

In a recent song of his he says ” “F**k the FBI and the army troops … fighting for what? Be your own man …
… I’ll be flying through the clouds with green like I’m Peter Pan.

Naturally many service members, their families and veterans are offended by the lyrics.

My Take:

First and foremost this “so called talent” has like two famous songs!

Sure he said some offensive lyrics but at the same time how many of us spouses go around screaming that our husbands (wives) fight for people’s freedom of speech. My take on this situation is simple if he wants to go around rapping stupid lyrics let him. In my opinion the rapping of those lyrics is nothing more then a publicity type plea to draw attention to his album which if nothing else he has succeeded at.

Many of the people in a uproar most likely never even heard of this rapper and definitely never listened his music and now we’re giving him this much attention? To take it a step further if you have ever heard of him it probably was from his most (and probably only) popular song “Crank That”. Go on youtube and you will see many everyday normal parents with their kids doing the famous “Crank That” dance , yet you will be surprised to know exactly what those lyrics mean…google it!

I was reluctant to even discuss him on my blog , so as not to even give the garbage a link to come up in the Google search engines. The more we focus on this the more attention he is going to get.

In an article the commissioner for the L.A. County Veteran’s Advisory Commission stated that ” [The rap] is inrresponsible especially for a person who is an entertainer for the youth of our country.”

I agree to an extent at the same time everyone is not going to support the troops just because they are an entertainer. He is still a person with an opinion, albeit a disrespectful one. Soulja Boy is not the parent of your kids, it is up to you to explain what our troops sacrifice on a daily basis.

At the end of the day he has freedom of speech on his side whether it is positive or negative. What we need to understand is that we are the ones who gives what he says power or not by choosing to entertain it or disregarding it.

I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

As for what I’ll be doing…”Who Is Soulja Boy again”?
