How about that Super Bowl halftime show?

    I disagree with Beyonce on probably 95% of what she says, where she donates her money, and the political ideologies she supports. But boy, can she perform. I have to give credit where its due, even if she and I disagree on some political issues.
    I cant listen to her or watch her perform because I am already turned off from her. plus I am not into her style or type of music. She cant perform no better than half the other performers out there.

    My streak of NOT watching a minute of a Super Bowl continued last evening, it's in the double digits but can't remember. Got to catch-up on a bunch of shows I DVR'ed from the History Channel, Science Channel, & PBS.

    The BP from the 60s were extremists who were against police brutality (initially in Oakland) and the racism faced by many blacks. So I'd say extremists instead of racists.

    I am well aware that her dancers wore BP berets and outfits. Does that make her a racist? Or does it say she is promoting black empowerment? What message is she trying to speak to? Police killing young blacks? Is that racist?

    What about the lyrics to the song she sang? Any issues with those?

    Guess the debate would be is the SB her platform to protest on?

    Depends on your goal. For Beyonce it was perfect due to the number viewers.

    I think maybe Springsteen was the last one I checked out in its entirety.

    Should the halftime show be about politics or entertainment?

    I really don't think the Black Panthers then or the New Black Panthers liked whites too much at all so for her to employ that just shows her feelings are mutual. Everyone knows the Black Panthers are racist toward whites.
    If she was doing it as a Black Lives Matter then she should be more concerned with black on black crime. I'm sure blacks kill each other more than cops do.

    Either way it's not supposed to be a show with an agenda, she just causes more hate by doing that.

    I mean hell, I know blacks have been and are treated different than most but I don't need it shoved down my throat watching the Super Bowl.

    Many cops also took offense from her as did a lot of people.

    And obviously it's all my opinion.

    Maybe the real issue is your attraction to Hillary.
