Jay-Z and Beyonce might be the richest black couple in the US. They got that way from rich, dumb white kids buying their horrible music CD's and overpriced concert tickets, which make the gaudy necklace Jay-Z now sports an odd choice. The 8-pt star with the number 7 in the middle is the symbol of the "5% Nation", a spin-off of the Black Panthers who believe that all black men have God in them, that black women serve them as complementary but subservient vessels, and that all white people are the devil.They don't consider themselves Muslims but their name is adopted directly from the Muslim belief that 5% of humanity are "poor, righteous teachers" whose job it is to enlighten the rest of us about the truth of existence.
There's so much white guilt in America that you'll probably see white people start wearing the symbol themselves....willfully adopting their penitent role as devil to Jay-Z's self-identity as a god.
What a pathetic culture!
