Questlove Fires Back at Bill O’Reilly’s Slavery Comments

Questlove Fires Back at Bill O’Reilly’s Slavery Comments

On Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at the Democratic National Convention, which is taking place this week in Philadelphia. During her speech, she spoke movingly about the country's history, remarking, “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.” On Tuesday, when discussing that part of Obama's speech, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly remarked that “slaves that worked there were well fed and had decent lodgings.” 

O'Reilly's comment has inspired significant backlash. Today on Instagram, Questlove wrote a lengthy counterpoint to the TV host's view of slavery. “Slavery is the pebble whose ripple in the river still resonates on and on and on and on,” he wrote. “I'd like to think most of you have common sense. But there is nothing more dangerous than a man in a suit pretending to be a journalist giving revisionist history on the ugliness that was slavery. What's so fun and lighthearted about being shackled?” Read his full comments below.

Slavery was inhumane. Slavery was sadistic. Slavery was uncomfortable. Slavery was unjust. Slavery was a nightmare. Slavery was a despicable act. Slavery is the pebble whose ripple in the river still resonates on and on and on and on. I'd like to think most of you have common sense. But there is nothing more dangerous than a man in a suit pretending to be a journalist giving revisionist history on the ugliness that was slavery. What's so fun and lighthearted about being shackled? being separated from your loved ones? Being molested and raped HOURLY, being branded with hot iron? being property? being castrated? being flogged? being malnourished? living in high stress conditions? forced to lay in your own feces? being sold in a heartbeat? suppressing ANY emotion (with the surprising exception of singing it was illegal ---lashes or death--to read, write, "talk back" or "sass", cry (how many of you heard "you better NOT cry before I give you something to cry about!"), get angry, or even more surprising LAUGHING (a plantation barrel of water was always in proximity to dunk ones head in so one could express emotions and suppress the sound as to not alert your overseer of your "sassing"---deep history I just learned about laughing and the slave period---the first recorded song "The Laughing Song" was the defiant "F%^k Tha Police" of its day (also where the term "Barrel Of Laughs" gets its origin)---I'm getting beside the point. I dunno if that man's (never say his name) point is to troll at any cost whatsoever but his entire existence is a 5 steps backwards for any progress made in humanity. My dismay is the percentage of people who get their news from memes/headlines/& sources to whom they have 0 clue is feeding them false information. Human Trafficking in any form from today's underage prostitution, to the private Prison System we exercise here in the US, to the Holocaust to 500 years of Slavery--and all other examples I've not mentioned is INHUMANE & Evil. ---watch where you get your information from and the company you keep people.

The Cure Co-Founder Lol Tolhurst Announces New Memoir Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys

The Cure co-founder and former drummer Laurence “Lol” Tolhurst has announced a new memoir, Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys. The book comes out October 11 on Da Capo Press. It tells the story of Tolhurst’s career with the Cure, which ran from the band’s 1976 formation until he left in 1989. According to a press release, Cured also “reveals the highs and lows of the lifelong friendship” between Tolhurst and frontman Robert Smith; they have known each other since they were both just 5 years old. See Tolhurst’s statement on the book, as well as its cover, designed by ex-Cure guitarist Pearl Thompson, below.

This is a record of the things that have kept me awake at 4 a.m., the precious flowers of the past blooming in the dark corners of memory. I have tried my best to capture whatever that light shone on. I hope it illuminates events for you as much as it has for me.
