Brown people straight up owned the National Spelling Bee this year. Did you see how many contestants in the top 10 were Indian? I thought I was looking at ten 7th grade pictures of me. I think one of them might have been wearing the same tucked in black jeans I had too.
But this beautiful moment goes beyond just brown people winning a contest. Brown people, whether they be Indian, Pakistani, Bengali, Arab, whatever (we’re all the same yo, in this together) - were colonized by people who INVENTED ENGLISH. Then we immigrated to their countries and got mocked and ridiculed for how we speak it. And here we are in 2013, at the highest level of competition, ON PRIMETIME ESPN, straight up dunking on these fools.
“Naruto 2009” is a rap album about the anime Naruto. It’s not just a retelling of the story, though. It’s a concept album where Eddie Rath is inside the world of Naruto and describes himself sword-fighting and fucking the different characters.
For those of you that have never heard of it. :)
