Hip-Hop MC turned entertainment mogul 50 Cent teamed and MTV recently revealed a clip from the G-Unit head honcho’s upcoming Rock Doc titled “50 Cent: The Origin of Me,” which features Fiddy traveling to Edgefield, South Carolina, in search of his roots.
In one clip, the rapper encounters an elderly woman, who explains the significance of the Confederate Flag to Curtis, who appears visibly irritated with the conversation.
“People really don’t understand what’s going on at that period of time,” the elderly woman told 50 Cent. “Black citizens in this country really needs to study the history, because it’s just as much the black ancestry as it is the white ancestry.”
Despite 50 explaining to “Miss Daisy'” how her rather perplexing explanation was racist … the old senior citizen woman acted as though there were no valid reasons for taking offense to it, saying that it has to do with black ancestry as well as white ancestry.
“She’s offering her truth … what‚ she’s accepted as the truth based on information given to her, but I don’t agree with it,” 50 Cent said.
The woman continued to tell 50 that “African and Mongolian” slaves were captured and put on ships … to which a bewildered 50 Cent politely interrupted her because he wanted to clarify what he heard: “Mongolian slaves?”
50 Cent, still remaining cordial and polite, asked her if the “Mongolian slaves” had any physical features that made them distinct from African slaves and she said there weren’t.
“Mongolian slaves?…I never heard of that before,” replied 50 Cent.
Neither have we!
