Rapper Says Racism Ain't Dead in America (What U Mean Paula Deen?)

Hip Hop has been alot of things; "gangsta" "pimped out" and even " jiggy." But the one thing that it hasn't been in a long time is "angry." At least not angry about the social and political conditions facing African Americans. But that is about to change.

Frustrated by the new racism facing Black people in a supposedly, "post racial America," Atlanta based Hip Hop artist Sean Barnes has just released a blistering track called "Racism Ain't Dead (What U Mean Paula Dean?). The song captures the real frustrations of 'hood residents who are outraged over recent incidents of racism from the Paula Dean controversy to the George Zimmerman/ Trayvon Martin murder trial.

"Anybody who thinks racism is dead or "accidental" needs to be pimp slapped back into reality, " says Barnes.

Although the subject matter is harsh, the rapper says that he is just reflecting the mood of the everyday people in the streets and what they talk about in barbershops and at bus stops.

"Don't blame me, I'm just the messenger, says Barnes. "And the message is, like activist Fannie Lou Hamer said back in the 60 's, we are 'sick and tired of being sick and tired!"
