Lets Just call it what it truly is, Jay Z and Beyonce don’t give back to the black community. It’s not a secret that Jay Z and Beyonce is all about seeing their wealth climb and less focus on contributing to social responsibility. Despite being worth an estimated $500 million and singing about the struggles during his teenage years and younger part of his adult life on the lack of opportunities provided for African-Americans, Jay Z turned his back on the black community as he raps about the struggles endured by black people while making millions.
It can be arugued that there are many black celebrities who refuse to create a significant impact on the black community with the wealth they have been blessed to accumulate, but two financially powerful couples as Jay Z and Beyonce often speaking about hardship of black people you would think would be more generous in funnelling millions in eliminating the barries faced by many blacks. Jay Z and Beyonce’s greed and focus in accumulating their wealth rather than giving back to black communities DIRECTLY(we all know that charitable donations by celebrities is a scheme in getting a tax break) is no surprise to us, but with a high-profile former actor as Harry Belanfonte saying Beyonce and Jay Z have turned their backs on social responsibility, many in media circles are now nodding their head in confirmation to the comment.
Belanfonte had this to say when asked about if he is happy with the image of minorities in Hollywood today:
Not at all. They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking. We are not determinated. We are not driven by some technology that says you can kill Afghans, the Iraqis or the Spanish. It is all — excuse my French — shit. It is sad. And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility. That goes for Jay-Z and Beyonce, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black.
