T-Pain Explains Why He Wants People to Stop Celebrating Black History Month
When talking about African-American culture, the 37-year-old hip-hop star also weighs in on the rash of bomb threats from historically black colleges and universities.
T-Pain doesn‘t like the idea of celebrating Black History Month. In a new interview with TMZ, the “bartender” rapper urged people to stop glorifying African-American culture and explained why.
“Stop celebrating,” the 37-year-old hip-hop star said when he was at the Los Angeles International airport. “Although we celebrate Black History Month, I think we should just have history. They overshot it. We don‘t want our own s**t, you’re separating us again. We want to be part of history and not just one month of it. ”
“Like we want to be part of history, don’t celebrate one month for us,” the emcee, born Faheem Rasheed Najm, further elaborated. “I’d rather everybody stop celebrating that s**t and just let us be part of history and not just, ‘y’all get paid attention to on the shortest month of the year.’

T-Pain addressed the rash of bomb threats
During the interview, T-Pain also addressed the rash of bomb threats from historically black colleges and universities. “It’s always been f**ked, f**ked for the years of hell,” he argued. “We take how we handle it. We’re going to make changes, we’re going to look to the future, and we’re going to stop looking back, and we’re going to make a change.”
“It ain’t gonna stop unless we have our own s**t. Just because we’re HBCUs don’t mean it ain’t owned by someone else,” the record producer continued. “We know what we’ve done, lets make our own s**t and we can get in wherever the f**k we want to.”
