France: “Hang White People” rapper on trial for incitement to murder

Rob ShimshockRebel Contributor

There's a concerted effort by so-called “anti-racist” groups to prosecute the black French rapper Nick Conrad for his music video “Hang White People,” in which Conrad and a fellow brother shoot, curbstomp, and finally hang a white guy in an inspiring display of anti-oppression.

YouTube actually deleted the video, a rare alternative to its typically more vital tasks of demonetizing conservatives, banning people for punching feminists in video games, and successfully creating the most disliked video on its own platform.

In the song, Conrad challenges white dominance with lyrics like “I go to the nurseries, I kill the white babies. Catch them quick and hang their parents!” and “Provide [whites] with weapons, let them kill each other with their bodies...their orchestrated death generates a lot of money. Oooh, oh man!”

For these poetic gems, he’s facing up to a €45,000 fine and five years in prison for incitement to murder, according to BBC.

Conrad’s lawyer argues that the rapper was simply using his artistic freedom. Forget Chopin, forget Wagner; “Hang White People” is art incarnate! The tune’s refrain, like most rap, is simply teeming with ingenuity. Conrad tells listeners to hang whites — artistically, not literally! — 20 times in a row. This repetition in the first refrain foreshadows the 40-strong “hang them” barrage in the climax. I mean, this is practically Shakespeare.

And just like the creative titans of old, Conrad’s work includes a historical allusion. The rapper claims that his music video is meant to shock people by reversing a white-on-black lynching portrayed in American History X (1998). He says that this means it shouldn’t be interpreted as it appears on the surface.

Filmmaker Aude Konan reported that, at Conrad’s first trial date on Jan. 9, prosecutors branded the late African American radical and Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X — whom the rapper references in his lyrics — as a “black supremacist.” The rapper responded by claiming that blacks can’t be black supremacists because they are at the bottom of the ladder.

(Konan’s Twitter thread — which garnered more than 3,000 shares — was the most highly trafficked one documenting the Conrad trial. For the record, Konan has previously said things like, “White people scare me” and “The best thing about spending time in Africa is that you simply forget that, like, white people exist.”)

While Conrad’s charge carries a €45,000 fine and five years in prison, prosecutors are asking for a suspended €5,000 fee, claiming that the rapper, who lost his job as receptionist for a five-star hotel after backlash to the video, has “already to a certain extent paid the consequences.”

Conrad’s trial will resume March 19.

Hilarious. The Black Dude would not last a day in Africa… Malcolm X would not have lasted a day. Neither would Farrakhan… To Black Africans, the arrogance of “Western Black Whiners”, would have the life span of one day….Not one of you would last a day in Somalia…They would rip you to pieces… They have no patience for your “Western Arrogance”… Dare ya all to move their.. We “White Folk” will even pay your way…:) We’ll even give Sharpton a free “one way ticket”….:)

Whites are supposed to stop using the N word, get on our knees and welcome this scum into our civilized world, pay the bills and watch them out breed us until they take over.
Then see if there is any Affirmative Action for us.
This is Faith’s new video, 1.2 hr. For your own sake you should watch it, “on subject”

A call for the return of tribalism, aimed at the people who could not make it in a civilized world, who listen and dream of the old war dances and the smell of Honky blood….Welcome aboard lads, the gates are open.

They should throw the book at him and see if there’s any humanity left. The poor boy has to blame an entire race for his imaginary hurt feelings.
