Justin Timberlake lynched on Twitter – Gala

It was the tweet too. Commenting on the superb speech for equality between black and white Americans uttered by Jesse Williams at the BET Awards, Justin Timberlake has exceeded the white line ….

Jesse Williams broke internet in the space of a speech. This weekend at the BET Awards ceremony, which annually recognizes African American artists and personalities, the interpreter of Dr. Avery Grey’s Anatomy has called for a gender blacks and whites in the United States, and strongly denounced police violence which regularly facing black America. A message shared thousands of times in a few hours on social networks, and has provoked many reactions. Including one, not necessarily wise, Justin Timberlake.

Having declared on Twitter “inspired” by the words of Jesse Williams, the singer was taken to task by many African Americans. As has been critical to Jesse Williams are applicable to the career of Justin Timberlake. In the early 2000s, the young singer straight out of the Disney school sported the perfect panoply of African-American rapper. Braids, bandana around his head to Tupac, baggy, it also uses the word “nigga” in his songs … Like Eminem for hip-hop, Justin Timberlake has often been described as an artist that has “revolutionized” his musical genre, R & amp; B, by making it more “white” … a surfer has such heckled: he wants this mean you’ll stop you appropriating our music and our culture? And you apologize to Janet too, “including commented a user of the social network To which Justin Timberlake responded. ” Oh, the naive, the quicker you will understand that we are the same and the more we can talk. Bye. “ It was enough to make social networks ignite against the husband of Jessica Biel.

You have to understand the history of black American musical culture enter this controversy. One example suffices. In the late 1950s, in full days of segregation, black rocker Chuck Berry released the single Sweet Little Sixteen. What does not surprise when he realized some time after the Beach Boys, composed of white members, have merely plagiarized his song, to make the tube Surfin Usa , winning passage thousands of dollars without paying him a dime. if the artist of Chess Records decided to continue and historical result, gaining against the group, this is not the case of dozens of black artists -américains. The latter, by creating musical genres such as blues, soul or r’n’b, were robbed melodies and songs never able to defend legally.

Today things are not the same. Among the greatest artists in the world, there are many African Americans, like Michael Jackson, Beyoncé or Rihanna … and others attempt to plagiarize their productions is as dangerous as to copy a guitar rif of Eric Clapton or the chorus of the new single Elton John. But the African American musical culture and its codes are constantly taken up by white artists and more successfully. “History repeats itself, and this is how it goes / the way these rappers eat up the flow of the other / the same as my nigga Elvis did with rock’n’roll / Justin Timberlake, Eminem and then Macklemore “ summed including rapper J. Cole two years ago in his album 2014 Forest Hills Drive.

Evoked by several users controversy also revolves around the scandal breast of Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake unveiled by accident during the halftime of the Super Bowl in 2004. the singer had at the time said it was an incident ” unintentional and unfortunate. ” But doubly penalized by its status as a woman, but also black, this episode had seriously dented the careers of Michael Jackson’s sister. full promotion of his album Damito Jo, she was blacklisted view playlists radios , persona non grata on popular tv shows, which are essential to keep his career afloat. the Justin Timberlake however, still doing great.

finally, Justin Timberlake has repented, always on Twitter. “I apologize to all those who have found that my comments were inappropriate. I feel nothing but love for you and for us all. “ A nice message, which has not yet been enough to calm the fire of controversy that always burns on social networks …
