Rap veteran Willie D of the groundbreaking group the Geto Boys has started a petition to, “Stop Giving Ignorance A Platform.” The petition comes on the heels of harsh criticism aimed at its author and those who signed an online apetition at change.org to encourage Jay Z and Beyoncé to groom their 2-year old daughter’s hair.
The petition reportedly created by a New York woman named Jasmine Toliver reads, This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let the word out to properly care got Blue Ivy hair.” Willie D who is also an advice columnist for the Houston Press took to Facebook today and slammed not just Toliver and those who signed the petition, but the American people in general.
Here is some of what he had to say: I understand that we are living in a time where being crude and ignorant is a commodity… What is wrong with us? We are behaving like savages. We are a lost society. If we continue on this course we will self-destruct.
