FROM NEWSONE.COM: With all the controversy regarding rappers lyrics going on right now, from Nas protest of Fox News to the Ludacris misguided Pro-Obama song, Politics as Usual, the media has been neglecting the negative lyrics of country music’s most popular star.
Singer Toby Keith is promoting a movie called Beer for my Horses, based on a song of the same name. The song promotes lynching criminals and vigilantism. In the song, Keith says
Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day, son
A man had to answer for the wicked that he done
Take all the rope in Texas
Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
Hang them high in the street for all the people to see.

This outrageous…. Willie Nelson is also singing the song and we are the ones they talk about, and we are the bad people. I just don’t understand this world and there double standards..
I dont think Toby Kieth is refering 2 black people..he specificaly says a man meaning any man and all bad boys meaning its not an issue of race..check ur history in the past all criminals were hung for their crimes (remember the wild wild west???)whether they were black white male or female if he meant just black people he would have said something like them people or those people i think ur really reaching with this one
He’s not talking about “black” people. Puzzling that you would go to this extent to publicize something, and be so off about it. Surely, you have a staff or interns, someone – to listen, check, proof, what goes out over your air-waves before you try to make an issue of something. So I guess other media is not making an issue out of these lyrics, because there is no story.
yo ez………….that dude Toby Keith you mentioned yesterday is more popular than you may think. He has sold 30 million records in his career, and guess what……He performed on the Tonight Show for Jay leno last night. No one is really paying attention to the derogatory contents of his lyrics, not even Jay Leno who allowed him to perfom on his show. But I guess the issue does not pertain to them, so therefore they don’t really care. This gets me upset. and what are these people who commented earlier talking about anyway. Like he is not talking about black people. Since when did they hang every criminal on a tall oak tree in Texas the dirty south.
Thanks for shedding light on this issue. The same people who criticize black artists for “violent” lyrics always overlook country music, which has a history of glorifying the outlaw lifestyle and vigilante-style justice. If they’re going to criticize violence in music or lyrics that promote unlawful behavior, they should pick white artists apart with the same fury they reserve for black artists. Everyone should be treated EQUALLY–with praise and with constructive criticism.
