MLK’s Dream Wasn’t to End Up On Your Club Flyers
Y’all play too murch. TOO DAMB MURCH! I know folks love clubbing and promoters love getting people to buy expensive, watered-down drinks while listening to terrible music for 4 hours and getting their shoes stepped on. HOWEVER, must they use some of the tactics they do? Like:
Seriously? Why do y’all have my main man Martin Luther King Jr. on your club flyer for some “weekend shuffle?” Not just that, but they got him looking like he gon take me for ALL my money. Like he’s gonna challenge me to a game of craps and if I say NAWL, he gon tell me “Yo, why you scared, doe?” You are not gonna do him like that!
This version of MLK looks like he couldn’t be trusted because he was always asking you to support his newest hustle. I wouldn’t e’em wanna go to a party where this dude will be present. The other men there will probably have on socks and sandals and short sets.
NOPE. Not for me.
Well, my point is supposed to be that they shouldn’t e’em have MLK on tacky club flyers with parties in his name. But umm… the MLK above is the one pre-movement, it looks like. Don’t be pulling out his super young pics so folks can think your party’s gon be about that life. If you ARE gon use the man, use a visual of him in a suit, not that it’ll make it better. Like below:
They got this dude rocking some bootleg non-Beats by Dre headphones, looking like he doesn’t approve of anything that might could go on at this shindig. MLK ain’t gon be at this party. Why are y’all using him as your marketing tool? Uh uh. Nawl. Talmbout “No Worries Bash.” That’s foolishment.
Black people (and others), I need us to stop using Martin Luther tha Kang’s pictures for janky club pluggers. I need us to stop having MLK-themed parties around his birthday. His dream was not for y’all to have “Drop it like it’s hot” Sunday in your raggelly club in his name! How does this honor his legacy? I know he wasn’t a saint (he was far from it) but Martin is prolly hitting his dougie in his grave.
This is just like that episode of the Boondocks, when MLK moved to Canada and said he was leaving y’all to your devices.
Tell your cousins to stop using that man’s image like this. Martin ain’t march all over the for y’all to abuse his likeness like this. Y’all already tried it with the Trayvon Martin hoodie parties that popped up all over the place last year. YOU. TRIED. IT. MLK parties at the club are like Gandhi keggers. They are foolish and make no sense!
So whatcha think bout MLK night at Club Grown and Sexy? You going or nah?
