You Lionazzi?

Hot 97 radio host Miss Jones, famous for her ribald morning show, once again makes news for offensive racist slurs. Earlier [last month], Miss Jones interviewed the German rapper Lionezz, ostensibly to poke fun at her for being cut from VH1's Miss Rap Supreme. Unfortunately, the tone quickly descended from jokey to racist, as Miss Jones compared Lionezz to the Nazis!

At first, Lionezz rhymed and Miss Jones and her studio mates began cracking jokes. Lionezz has been in the business for almost ten years and is no stranger to criticism. However, these comments were not about skills, they were straight up personal, so Lionezz responded with insults in German. This was apparently too much for the high and mighty Hot 97 staff, so they cut off Lionezz's mic and began slinging racist slurs like "Heil Hitler!" "Shine my boots!" and "Mein Reich siegt!" (Victory to my Reich!).

Lionezz may be German, but she is of Armenian immigrant origin and grew up suffering abuse from the real ethnocentric Neo-Nazis. How ludicrous that Lionezz would cross the ocean to be compared to her enemies by an ignorant American!

Beyond Lionezz, Miss Jones showed her complete disregard for the millions of victims of the Nazi regime, who suffered true political persecution and do not deserve to be cheapened by a music shock jock. Miss Jones has exercised similarly bad judgment in the past, when she was suspended in 2005 for racist comments against Asians after the Tsunami crisis. Miss Jones is supposed to be part of a multicultural art form, but once again, she has abused her platform by spewing racist vitriol, and deserves to be held accountable.

If you read the whole article on SOHH.com you'll realize that all of this boils down to:

German rappers must not drop English bars!!
