Tampa Police Snub Beyonce?


According to reports police officers in Tampa are staging a silent protest against Beyonce by refusing to sign up to work security for her concert...

From Tampa Fox13
Beyonce has taken a lot of heat for her new song “Formation,” which critics claim has an anti-cop message. Some Tampa Police officers might agree, if the request to work her upcoming Tampa concert is any indication. No one has agreed to do it.
Typically, officers who are off-duty agree to work concerts and sporting events at the venue for extra income, but none have signed up to work security for Beyonce’s upcoming concert on April 29 at Raymond James Stadium.
If no officers sign up shifts will be assigned.

A Tampa P D spokesperson tells Fox 13,
“We’re going to staff it because we have a responsibility to do that regardless of how controversial it might be, who the artist might be, or the politician might be. This is a couple of months away, so we’ve still got plenty of time to fill those slots.”

Right above.... they get paid the same as teachers (no pun whatsoever). Let's just say she cancels the Tampa concert...she will still be billionaire status.

Excellent. Fake rage. White tears. I'm loving every minute of it. Watching those Devils smile over the dead body of a Black Panther they'd killed, that really got to me. So happy when those Devils are unhappy. As the young Turks said-it's nothing but scare tactics the right wing implements. And as we saw at the NFL headquarters, were calling these devils bluff. Excellent, just excellent!

Yes, when you assign sifts those are police officers that should be on the street protecting the citizens. Sorry one person is not as important (don't care who it is) as a city.

I do not understand why these white cops hate this gorgeous white woman. The last time I checked, appropriating black culture was not a crime.

It's not as if they're doing it for free or they are turning down a request from her to privately hire them. Stfu racists bastards and do the job you took an oathe and get paid to do!!!

Bey should REALLY piss them off and hire the Fruit of Islam!We'd really see white tears then!

I dont like Beyonce....but I really HATE the police. Where I am from we dont even call them we call family members. Fck them!! Bey dont need them, they need her.

For real? Why we surprised? The cops ain't never been here to serve and protect US; they're here to protect white folks and make sure they're comfortable.

And now, Beyonce's getting her ni**a wake up call. The backlash will continue as white folks feel more and more threatened--and we'll see how long she stays on this tip. Even money she'll be returning to her blond weave wearing, hootchie acting, wanna be white girl self when the BLM movement is no longer convenient for her.

Face it--it's all planned, all pre-conceived: all to subjugate us. DO NOT BE FOOLED.

Beyonce has donated over 7 million to the homeless in Houston....how bout you?? (Crickets)

Anonymous said...

LOL these same officers will gladly protect Trump's racist ass when he comes to town when he doesnt give two fcks about them or their broke ass bank accounts. Idiots.

Anonymous said...

@3:00--no, not crickets; not ashamed at all that I don't have 7 million to donate, and good for her if she has. But she has got to make a better representation of herself than shaking her a**, crunching her nose, flinging her blond weave and doing the most she can to pit herself separate from regular black folks (creole, right?).

Anonymous said...

^^^^So because she wears a blonde weave she wants to be white? Pam Grier, Mary J., Ciara, Nene, Kim K., Tboz, Jada etc.. have worn blonde hair, does that mean they to want to be white too? Can we use that anology that women that perm their hair to make it straight or who wears a straight weave want to be white too? SMDH

There's nothing wrong with paying homage to your dna. She said, "my daddy Alabama, mama Louisiana MIX that negro with that Creole make a Texas bama'! She acknowledged both of her parents ethnicities, what's wrong with that?

Anonymous said...

Yeah, but eventually, they took it OFF. She been wearing that proudly for 15 years, self hate game proper. And perming hair to make it easier to manage is not the same as being perpetually in a blonde weave.

And did you really say Kim K?

Anonymous said...

^^^Con't--please don't try and add her (Kim K) to our rolls. You've got to see how her perpetrating a white-centric standard of beauty for nearly 2 decades has a negative impact on our embracing and accepting that we can be beautiful without all of that.

You dont have to perm your hair to make it easier to manage. Thats actually making it worse. There are several natural styles you can do.

Yes, and gluing or sewing somebody's else's hair onto yours for over 10 years is making it even worse.

Hair does not crunch in India, there are so many beauties with smooth glossy hair that grows directly from the scalp, perfect brown skin and straight noses. Beauty runs wild and untamed in India.

Anonymous said...

No they ALL have not stopped wearing blonde but as long as it's not long periods at a time, then they don't want to be black? Gotcha! That makes sense.

Yeah I said Kim K because even though she's worn blonde hair, lots of people believe she's trying to be black from her braids, lip injections, tans, butt injections etc....

and 5:12 makes my case--self hate in our community is REAL, and your 'queen' is front and center of the formation.

Bey stans are so f'ing stupid. How can anyone belive that this mess of a song is a black power anthem? Weak minds will accept anything and follow anyone.

^^^Thank you 5:49, please let these drones know. I've been trying to explain it all this time. They're up here trying to defend her self hating, pseudo black power foolishness right down to her perpetually dry blond weaves and still don't get it.

Anonymous said...

@5:57 They are self-hating as well. She fed them a line about loving her Negro nose and they fell for it when it's obvious that she did NOT love her Negro nose. She shaved it off years ago but the stupid stans say "yasss queen!" Lol.

NOI will be there to help.

Let's not exaggerate, or maybe you don't really get it. The point is: people can argue that wearing blonde hair (an alternative from your natural hair is to look more European ) but equivalent to straightening your hair via perm or getting a straight weave (also alternatives that are considered European ). Why should one alternatives be labelled as wanting to be white vs you're black wanting and getting European looks but you're just trying something different?

Bey's haters think they are so much superior than her stans ummm news flash; you're on the EXACT same level, holding her to different standards than others. Duh...

Anonymous said...

I wish haters could see their perceptions of "Beyonce can't do anything right" is on the EXACT same level as the people who think "she can do no wrong". You are on different ends of the perspective, not inferior or superior but equal!!

At this point she cant until she addtesses the harm her messaging has had....a retarding affect on the most vulnerable of our community

And it continues same harmful messaging divisive...she shouts out yellow bone as well.....taking our community in the wrong direction

She has redivided emphasized color...and shat on other values our community USED to hold deat.....education

F that ffool once her influence is gone things will be better but the industry will just hire the next sellout

And worst of all she promotes idolatry

^^^7:35...Yes! Why can't they see it?

Anonymous said...

^@6:22, Yes we hold her to a different standard. Because she has a platform--an international one--that most black folks will never achieve; an opportunity to address and impact the world/OUR world with her art. And what does she choose to do with it? She spends nearly 2 decades damn near showing and popping her ass at every turn, and singing nonsense about what she's got, how 'bad' she is, how we should bow down (and are bitches by the way), and how her and her man get down? That's where we are, huh? All set to nothing more than a nursery rhyme with a beat.

No thank you.

I like my baby hair with baby hair and afros (Blue ) I like my negro nose with Jackson five nostrils. (Jigga)

She can't help how people interpret her. The devil is a liar, majority of black folks have ALWAYS been divided and color struck AND they can't even blame it on YT. GTFO she didn't start that shit, it's been that way since before anyone on this site was even born. Her song, video, superbowl performance didn't alter white people's views of we blacks nor us supporting each other and being color struck and if you think everything was Kumbya even the day before Formation dropped then you must believe in unicorns and fairies.

She's not the messiah, she shouldn't be held to a higher standard because "her words can reach more people faster". If anyone should be held to a higher standard it should be the police. Contrary to what lots of her hive and haters think; "She's not GOD, she's just like us; human made of flesh and therefore she's going to make mistakes". To hold her to higher standards is saying she's better than us but at the least her being human and being able to reach masses should remind us that we need to be bigger role models ourselves especially in OUR kids lives.

The president doesn't address 95% of people's interpretations of him but Beyonce should?

@ 2:24 PM, I doubt she or her husband want to deal with the NOI, especially after Farrakhan, basically, publicly told Jay-Z to put some clothes on his wife, while he was campaigning for the Million Man March. He probably said that because he was trying to get a financial contribution from them and they told him no. Funny he didn't do that to Kanye when his wife's ass was plastered all over the Internet and some magazine. He met with Kanye and Kim instead, but I digress.

Don't believe this, I don't even believe it because the concert is months away. They are trying to get people amped up enough to buy their concert tickets because they know people are in a vulnerable state about the police brutality crisis since Beyoncé decided to conveniently be pro-black but you can do what you want to, I don't really care. It's just not as serious as it may seem and the chief officer is a black man who said this is not the case. You don't have to believe me but let the powers that be keep it tricked up.

But that song Formation isn't all that , if it was it would be breaking records and things like that. That Glory song by Common and John was even better and about People of color. Why did Beyonce wait so long to start helping the black cause. That chick is all about helping her bottom line and trying to derail every person in the game with her game plan. She don't give a single shy t about the black cause , all she want is black, and all people money in her bank account, and she don't give a care how she get it. And now she call herself Rapping what a crock.

What the? Read this slowly, Police officers and others do not give a damn about Beyonce pussy popping, rewarding her man with RL for fucking her good or her lyrics.

They are outraged at the "IMAGERY" of her video (their own words) and for her black panther attire at the Superbowl. Most black people aren't focusing on her lyrics, (yes even the ones who protested against boycotting protestors). If you read their invite, youd know they weren't protesting because they believe beyonce is the second coming or her lyrics were groundbreaking.

They are proud of what the imagery of her video stands for and were pissed that she was being boycotted because of it. Separate the lyrics from the video. Matter of fact watch the video on mute and ignore her pussy popping and you will hopefully get why the cops are mad and why others stand for the video NOT THE LYRICS!

Not everyone that supports the imagery of the video supports Beyonce the person or artist. I'm not buying a cd or concert ticket but I support the message that her video is sending!!
