T-Pain Says People Should Stop Celebrating Black History Month: ‘Y’all Separating Us Again’


Black History Month is in full swing, and while many are celebrating African-American culture, there are others who rather not take part in the festivities.

On Tuesday (February 1), a dozen Historically Black Colleges and Universities received bomb threats, and TMZ caught up with the always outspoken T-Pain to get his comments on the whole situation.

“It’s always been fucked up, it’s been fucked up for hella years,” T-Pain said in response to the bomb threats. “We take it how we’ve been taking it. We going to make changes, look towards the future and stop looking at the past and we’ll make a change.”

He added, “It ain’t gonna stop unless we have our own shit. Just because we’re HBCUs don’t mean it ain’t owned by someone else. We know what we’ve done, lets make our own shit and we can get in wherever the fuck we want to.”

The TMZ reporter then asked T-Pain what advice he has for white people celebrating the historical month. According to T-Pain, everyone should stop glorifying and mentioning it altogether.

“Stop celebrating,” he said. “Although we celebrate Black History Month, I think we should just have history. They overshot it. We don’t want our own shit, you’re separating us again. We want to be part of history and not just one month of it.”

He continued, “Like we want to be part of history, don’t celebrate one month for us. I’d rather everybody stop celebrating that shit and just let us be part of history and not just, ‘y’all get paid attention to on the shortest month of the year.’”

Kanye West sang a similar tune earlier this week when he declared February 2022 as the first Black Future Month. He also held a press conference with all attendees draped in Black. NFL star Antonio Brown, Gunna, Shenseea and Fivio Foreign have all been spotted in attendance.

“FEBRUARY IS NOW BLACK FUTURE MONTH #BFM,” Kanye wrote on Instagram with an accompanying photo showing the color black.
