People have long claimed the sequel can never be as good as the original. We are the World has returned, however, in an attempt to bring peace, stability and hope to Haiti - a nation that was devoid of peace, stability and hope prior to the earthquake.
Before, We are the World gathered to raise money with the hopes of bringing peace and stability to Africa, a continent beset with the horrific problem of being populated by millions upon millions of Black people.
Sadly, although more $60 million was raised, the continent of Africa has not been blessed with stability, peace or hope. No matter that pop culture singers from Michael Jackson to Bruce Springsteen joined in lending their vocal talent to the song, the money and espirt de corps between Disingenuous White Liberals and the Africans didn't translate to poverty being eradicated, war and genocide ending nor Black nations rising to great prosperity.
Now, disregarding the problematic results of We are the World part one, a sequel that was as warranted as Deuce Bigelow II has been recorded:
In 1985, Justin Bieber was nine years from being born, Auto-Tune was 12 years from being invented, and Lil Wayne turned 3. Yet all three are prominent on "We Are the World: 25 For Haiti," a remake of the 1985 charity single that will benefit relief efforts in earthquake-stricken Haiti.
Pink, Akon and T-Pain add ad-libs as well, and then another callback to 1985 swoops in as Foxx channels the late Ray Charles, who was at the session 25 years ago. Foxx won the 2004 Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Charles in the film "Ray."
Hip-hop is a defining part of the pop landscape in 2010, and the new "We Are the World" reflects that. A Will.I.Am-penned verse is performed by a host of rappers, including LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, and Kanye West. Will and Kanye also have solo turns on the song, with each adding brief freestyles. The song ends with Wyclef emotionally toasting his homeland.
Famine, insane crime rates, child slavery and a delicious medley of dirt-cakes were what the Black people in Haiti (one of the oldest Black-run nations on earth) had prior to the earthquake. Now, after the horrific geological disaster struck the island, the 100 percent Black nation has seen those problems only compounded.
Oh, and the fear of zombies overrunning the island in a nightmarish scenario George Romero would be hard pressed to imitate on film, has left the Haitians fearful of visiting the mass graves of those killed in the earthquake.
Money can't buy you love and it can't reverse the cold, calculating indifference of nature. We are the World in the 1980s was an interesting song, but produced absolutely no net positive results for Africa.
We are the World 2.0 is an attempt to "capture the magic" of the the original, with an updated ensemble cast of rappers and other degenerates bent on bringing hope to an island nation that never had any to begin with.
We at SBPDL feel sorry for the current generations of Haitians. They have the unfortunate task of trying to build a nation on par with 1st world nations, a task that no majority Black nation is capable of performing (even when a 1st world nation hands over the reigns of power to Black people, the resulting generosity and head start results in a reversal of fortune and 3rd world status quickly follows).
Crusading White Pedagogues and Disingenuous White Liberals work under the false premise that all people are capable of the intellectualism and with hard work, can all be like white people.
The world is a cruel place and only the cruelty of this egalitarian myth makes it worse. CWP's and DWL's operate with a white supremacist mindset, as they view the world through white culture and progress glasses, never truly understanding why nations with majority Black populations haven't attained nor can attain the same level of civilization that white people have.
They cry when they think of how oppressive their white ancestors were to indigenous populations and they cry when they see how the Black people exist in inner cities of America and in majority Black nations. They pray that with the teachings of white people that these Black people can strive for the white heights of high culture that they grew up with, never asking why Black people everywhere live in the same circumstances (even in America).
Haiti is the way it is because it has a 100 percent Black population. Same thing for other African nations. Zimbabwe and South Africa are quickly regressing to this natural state, even though white people created 1st world economies and nations there, before capitulating power to the Black people in those lands (sadly, the same results are mimicked in Black-controlled major cities and counties).
No amount of money has ever closed the racial gap in learning among Black and white students in the United States. No amount of money has ever helped Haiti, nor any African nation.
No amount of singing or rapping by pop icons in America helped Africa or Haiti in 1985, nor in 2010.
Stuff Black People Don't Like prefers Toto's Africa, a song that doesn't try and be crusading nor disingenuous but simply blesses the rain down in Africa.
Better to bless the rain elsewhere than try and cover up the problems of nature with money. Not everyone can attain the same civilization that white people have, nor do Black people care for those who Act White. This glaring contradiction is never considered by the DWL's trying to remake Black people white.
One thing is for certain though: THE REGRESSION OF MUSIC IS OBVIOUS WHEN YOU COMPARE THE 1985 VERSION TO THE 2010 CHORUS OF CACOPHONY.
