Beyonce’s performance during the halftime show at Super Bowl 50 hurt a lot of racists feelings so naturally, Conservatives who would never attend one of Queen Bey’s concerts anyway, are planning a ‘boycott rally.’ We predict that their boycott won’t go over well.
You see, Beyonce’ Knowles had the audacity to perform while black while her dancers wore berets. Some sources say the berets were giving support to Herman Bell, the Black Panther who was tried and convicted of murder in the 1970s by an all-white jury.
In addition, Beyonce’ dared to utter the word ‘negro’ in her song. Totally evil.
The #BoycottBeyonce protesters are being asked to gather outside the headquarters of the National Football League in New York City at 8:00 a.m. on February 16, according to CNN.
After the performance, several of the dancers were featured in a photograph with a sign that read“Justice For Mario Wood,” a 26-year-old black man who was killed by police officers.
That was too much for Conservatives to handle.
“Are you offended as an American that Beyoncé pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Superbowl?” the invitation on asks. “Do you agree that it was a slap in the face to law enforcement?”
“Come and let’s stand together,” the notice reads. “Let’s tell the NFL we don’t want hate speech & racism at the Superbowl ever again!”
Ironically, the Twitter users promoting the protest which CNN also has posted, are individuals I have blocked over their racist tweets and some have blocked my personal account for calling them out.
If you don’t think this is about racism, here’s a cop’s racist wife, who has previously tweeted calling for Tamir Rice’s mother to be hanged.
I blocked this woman ages ago.

Oh sure, this is totally not racist at all (wink wink).

Ah, she’s just a failed musician jealous of Beyonce’s success. While she rages against Beyonce’s music because it pisses her off, she wants to now make music that “pisses people off.”
ALL THIS BEYONCE NONSENSE HAS DONE IS MAKE ME WANNA MAKE MUSIC THAT MEANS SOMETHING + PISSES PEOPLE OFF. We need more of that.

We’re wondering where the Blue Lives Matter supporters are now that white armed militants have overtaken the Malheur Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon, even though law enforcement feels they are a threat and want them out of the area.
The ridiculous protest, which actually confirms the bias in this country, sparked a counter-protest, asking supporters for the singer to show up.
“When Black women affirm Blackness/Black womanhood, they are attacked and silenced,” reads the posting, which goes on to invite women to dress in outfits inspired by the “Formation” video or the Super Bowl performance. “This is a counter protest to … a racist, ahistorical attack on the Black Panther Party and Beyonce, plus an excuse to celebrate a very awesome song and #BlackGirlMagic moment.”
Good luck in bringing a successful black woman down, Racists. Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter World Tour of 2013-2014 grossed $212 million from attendance of nearly 2 million to 126 shows, according to Billboard.
