#rapalbumsthatcausedslavery is a satirical hashtag associated with parodies of hip hop album titles that are altered to convey imageries of slavery and racism. It was launched with a mocking intent in response to a TV news program discussion about the University of Oklahoma Racism Incident in March 2015, during which a commentator asserted that rap music could have been an influence on the behaviors of the students involved in the incident.


On March 11th, 2015, the news network MSNBC aired an episode of the talk show Morning Joe , in which the members of the program discussed the University of Oklahoma Racism Incident. Commentators Bill Kristol and Mika Brzezinski in particular asserted that the incident was triggered by rap music, claiming that the perpetrators of the incident had picked up on the language from listening to the genre.[1]


Later that day, the hashtag was created in response to the incident. Several tweets which used it were re-tweeted by hip-hop artist Talib Kweli, which helped spread the hashtag.[2] Its spread was noted by several news and media outlets.
