Tom Hanks has been called “the nicest guy in the world” for most of his acting career, but his son, aspiring rapper Chet Haze (real name Chester Hanks), is aiming for another title. Which is probably more along the lines of “f—kboy of the year.”
Haze, who couldn’t rap himself out of a paper bag, fancies himself as someone who is down with hip-hop culture, surrounds himself with black dude wannabe rappers and is now defending his use of the n-word. Haze recently posted several Instagram posts that clearly show that he surrounds himself with similar f—kboys who happen to be black and who happen to think it’s OK for their white homeboy to use the word around them.
Haze posted a video on his Instagram, which has now been deleted but that went like this:
If I say the word [n—ga] I say it amongst people I love and who love me. If I say “[f—k] yall hatin ass [n—ga]” it’s because that’s really how I felt at the time. And I don’t accept society getting to decide what ANYBODY can or can’t say. That’s something we call FREE SPEECH. Now I understand the older generation who grew up in the Jim Crowe(sic) era might have strong feelings against this. And that’s understandable… But what I’m saying is this is 2015… And even tho we are still far from where we need to be and black people are still being literally KILLED by a RACIST and [f—ked] up system… We have also reached a point where the word can no longer have a negative connotation if we so choose. And who is to say only black people can use it? The way I see it, it’s a word that unifies the culture of HIP-HOP across ALL RACES, which is actually kind of a beautiful thing. It’s a word that can be used out of camaraderie and love, not just exclusively for black people. What’s the point in putting all these built up “rules” about it. It’s time to let go. You can hate me or love me for it, but can’t nobody tell me what I can or can’t say. It’s got nothing to do with trying to be a thug. It’s about the culture of the music. And that’s all I have to say about that (no pun intended) lol. It’s all love. Some people will get it, some people won’t. Either way, Ima keep living my life however the [f—k] I want. ALL LOVE.
I’d like to see Haze walk up to random black guy on the street and use the word. I’d also like to see random black guy on the street punch Mr. 90210 in the mouth.
Black America would like to thank Chet Hanks for clearing up when to use the n-word and acknowledging that we won’t get it because of America’s history and stuff. Also, thank you for shooting these videos and talking about the n-word from your father’s car and stomping down the mean streets of Hollywood. And these n-words you hang out with? The Negro delegation frowns upon their shenanigans, and we’d like to offer them up in the next racial draft.
Know this, Chet Haze: I just got off the phone with the overlords of hip-hop and was told that you need to join the police force where you can use the n-word with impunity and act just as tough. Also, rap fans will buy Parrapa-the-Rapper’s mixtape or Welvin da Great’s “Got Emmm” greatest hits before any n-word is bumping some Chet Haze in the whip.
Chester Hanks, your name is built for smooth jazz and white privilege, and you have officially reached f—kboy status.
