The news stories that annoy the hell out of you thread

A white woman has been booed at a Kendrick Lamar gig for singing the N-word on stage.

The rapper invited the woman, who identified herself only as "Delaney", to sing M.A.A.D City during his set at the Hangout Festival in Alabama.

But Kendrick stopped her after she repeatedly used the N-word - which is heard multiple times in his song.

As the crowd reacted angrily, Kendrick told her: "You gotta bleep one single word."

She appeared not to realise why she had been stopped, and asked: "Am I not cool enough for you, bro?"
If you have a problem with a word then why the hell would you write it multiple times in a song?

I find that I do a hell of a lot of historical reading these day and was reading up again on the Barbary and Arab slave trade. Whole villages in Spain, Italy, Cornwall, Ireland and France taken captive and sold into slavery in North Africa and around the Ottoman Empire, continuing into the 20th century. We never hear a word about the 1.25 million* white people taken by the Barbary Pirates or the 5 million* black African slaves sold to Muslim countries.

Yet how many movies have been made about it? If you didn't look it up you would never know.
