Jay Z & Rocawear Exploit The Occupy MovementNovember 13th, 2011
There are protesters in almost every American city nowadays. Know why? Because the government, Wall Street and the banks only care about themselves and their rich
imperialist capitalist colleagues mane. Don’t believe me? Ask Dr Cornel West.
Is Jay Z pimping the movement? Of course he is. Didn’t you hear about Jay Z’s new line of t-shirts “Occupy All Streetz”? The profits from the t-shirts will go directly into Jay Z’s pockets. Know why? Because Jay Z doesn’t care about the 99% who are protesting across the country mane.
When push comes to shove JayZ has never been of the people or for the people. Jay is just a corporate house nigga. This is a glowing example of just that.
Here’s what a Rocawear representative had to say:
“The ‘Occupy All Streets’ T shirt was created in support of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement.
Rocawear strongly encourages all forms of constructive expression, whether it be artistic, political or social. ‘Occupy All Streets’ is our way of reminding people that there is change to be made everywhere, not just on Wall Street. At this time we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement.”
Jay Z is a rich out of touch dude and if he wants to be accepted by the 99 percent of people who left holding the bag, he should donate ALL the profits from his new t-shirt line to the cause..
Jay Z is not supporting the protesters, but he is exploiting their movement and I’m disgusted.
