LOS ANGELES — T-Pain ruffled feathers the other day when he suggested we stop celebrating Black History Month. The “Bartender” artist believes negro tradition should be recognized 24/7, 365 days a year; not just February, the most diminutive month on the calendar. “It’s always been f*cked up, it’s been f*cked up for hella years,” T-Pain, 37, told TMZ after they caught up with his black ass at Los Angeles International Airport. “We take it how we’ve been taking it. We going to make changes, look towards the future and stop looking at the past and we’ll make a change.” T-Pain also laments the downtrodden state of black proprietorship. “It ain’t gonna stop unless we have our own sh*t,” he fumed. “Just because we’re HBCUs don’t mean it ain’t owned by someone else. We know what we’ve done, lets make our own sh*t and we can get in wherever the f*ck we want to.”
“Stop celebrating,” T-Pain continued. “Although we celebrate Black History Month, I think we should just have history. They overshot it. We don’t want our own sh*t, you’re separating us again. We want to be part of history and not just one month of it. Like we want to be part of history, don’t celebrate one month for us. I’d rather everybody stop celebrating that sh*t and just let us be part of history and not just, ‘y’all get paid attention to on the shortest month of the year.'”
