Living That BOUNCE Life

ATLANTA, GEORGIA - SEPTEMBER 12: Mulatto performs onstage during day 1 of REVOLT Summit x AT&T Summit on September 12, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.

On Friday (June 5), Atlanta rapper Mulatto took to Instagram and responded to Laura Ingraham, who supported Drew Brees who said that he disapproves of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.

“Like I said been tried to tell y’all bout this Laura hoe,” Mulatto wrote in the caption of Instagram post on Friday. “If you don’t know who she is the post still on my page.”

“If you feel like scrolling, if not google what she said bout Nipsey [Nipsey Hussle]  when he passed RIP & see what she just had to say about the [Black Lives Matter] movement & Lebron [Lebron James] after commending Drew Brees,” Mulatto wrote.

In Mulatto’s post, she shared an old video of her performing on stage where she references Ingraham and another fellow Fox News pundit, Tomi Lahren. “Aye Tray! [expletive] Laura Ingraham! [expletive] Toni Lohren!” Mulatto said in the video.

“If you don’t like it, you could get it too,” she rapped. “Lord forgive me. If I ever see them. I’mma beat they ass until they’re Nipsey blue.”

Mulatto has been vocal on social media regarding police brutality, and a week ago, she talked about the origin of her rap moniker as well as her experience being a black woman who is biracial. “With my name being ‘Mulatto’ I feel a certain duty to speak up. If you don’t know the origin of my name, in American culture, it was a racist slur used for the offspring of 1 black parent 1 white parent. A lot of people don’t understand my reclaiming of the term and won’t no matter how many times I speak on it and that’s fine,” she wrote a week ago.

“I come from a white mom who was offered the option of abortion and ridiculed for creating a seed with a black man. I come from a half-white family who doesn’t understand my frustrations, experiences, and challenges because they can’t relate. (It’s so frustrating trying to educate them and protect my other black cousins as that side of my family continues to diversify) but the term holds power to me & it’s me owning and loving the same qualities of myself that I was judged for before even being born.”

“My name was never meant to highlight my white side but instead the exact opposite… To spit in those same faces by owning the exact part of me they hated. I’m black. I went to black schools, listen to black music, and live in a city where black people thrive, Atlanta,” Mulatto continued.

“But this isn’t just about me or my story. I feel the responsibility to bring awareness to what’s going on especially with the platform/followers/influence I have. No justice no peace. I refuse to be a part of the problem by ignoring the problem. Every person in this college fell victim to systemic racism. Say their names. Arrest their murderers.”
