The RZA baffled many in his wide-ranging interview with Bloomberg TV last week, turning heads with his “All Lives Matter” support. The Wu-Tang Clan founder also shocked when he spoke about Black men and their style of dress being what sparks police to target them, facing heavy criticism for doubling down on that stance via Twitter.
As we shared last week, the artist born Robert Diggs spoke candidly about what he feels is a connection between how young Black men dress and the police targeting them for potentially invalid reasons. Across social media, RZA was ridiculed for the statements which prompted the Twitter response.
“How can a original black man be a coon & sell out? You best look deep into my words & make an assessment. Do you still think pork is healthy?” wrote RZA.
He added, “I don’t expect agreement with everything I say. I speak honestly from my own perspective &evaluation from my space time experience.”
