Harry Belafonte: Jay-Z And Beyonce “Turned Their Backs On Social Responsibility…Give Me Bruce Springsteen…I Really Think He’s Black”

Harry Belafonte doesn’t think some minority celebrities are doing enough to contribute to social awareness. He told The Hollywood Reporter:

“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.”
