Johnny Rebel pulls the "I'm not racist but..." card

Louisiana racist country musician and occasional foil on Howard Stern's show, C.J. "Johnny Rebel" Trayan  unsurprisingly "black culture" in this 2001 interview with the white power radio show hosted at the white power Chimpout site . What I'm curious about here is:
1) How these attitudes have disseminated through his music and the more general attitude of the white power movement.
2) The strange contradictions both he and the host have when comes to racism. Both seem to only define racism as "someone who activiely promoted hate and violence towards another race." The host says "now you're a racist if there's even things about another culture that you're uncomfortable with." However, Chimpout's sister site Chimptube calls itself: "the multimedia solution for all your niggerbashing entertainment needs." Yeesh!

This link to the interview (2nd one above) includes many segrationalist songs from the late 1800s and early 1900s I wrote about Trayan in my 2008 paper about Extreme Metal and Extreme Politics  which culled the history of a variety of racist and other controversial musics before and during the history of Heavy Metal.

Trayan/Rebel's been making his racist country tunes since 1966 when he released his first singles:
"Lookin' For a Handout / Kajun Klux Klan" and followed that up the same year with "Nigger Hatin' Me / Who Likes A Nigger?" Musically and lyrically this cavalcade of racist crap (which you can hear in the 2nd link above) – is  shocking yet also unremarkably redundant. To put it bluntly, this shit gets old real quick.

Going back  to the interview, Trayan/Rebel claims "they (blacks) deserve all the same rights that Hispanics enjoy, Caucasians enjoy, Asians enjoy, I certainly don't think of them as less than deserving of those rights." On the other hand, he goes on to complain that "they (blacks) shouldn't be able to impose their goddamn crap on us". OK, the host's generalizing makes a little sense "their are aspects of (their culture) that quite frankly are destructive and negative". Although, this is also like saying trailer trash who beat their wives and get fat as an ox off of BBQ and tankards of Coca-Cola is part of "white culture". Strangely, Trayan/Rebel makes the correlation between whites accepting popular black music, the Civil Rights bill and current tolerance for their place in society. "We were the son of bitches that started on this...we started listening to Rhythm and Blues - that was black music...we started listening to the black music and then they figured that everything else could come along - and it did. It eventually it led to the Civil Rights Bill and eventually the Civil Rights Bill led to more and more - and a lotta your whites out there that think blacks are just another person - no different color, no different any thing...and I won't teach my kids that."

He goes on to say "I'm not a racist - I wanna be with my kind" then follows with "the two things I hate is the attitude towards the white man 'cause they think we owe 'em something ...and next they wanna marry fuckin' white people!...That irritates the livin' shit outta me! When I see a black guy with a white girl that turns my stomach." Then finishes with "why do they make so many kids?...they're just a piss poor race." Rebel's songs have been posted all over YouTube and naturally across white-power forums like Stormfront and German-based Thiazi. Additionally, Rebel's music has been sold by white-power record labels such as Resistance Records and Micetrap Distribution. Contrary to rumor, Johnny Rebel's true identity as noted earlier is CJ Trayan and NOT the famous outlaw country artist, David Allan Coe.

    1. White people came and found this country through struggles hard work and progression. You niggers were all brought here because your race was too stupid to even have a language by the time we were inventing motorized vehicles. If your black asses didnt get brought over here all of you would be running from lions and killing each others tribes with no clothes or shoes and none of the fat niggers would have A/C to sit in while they sell drugs all day. So be thankful your ancestors struggled how they did and thats what made you in a way better position today. Im not saying slavery was right but white people have been slaves way longer than blacks were further back in history. You will never here a white person bitch about that, thats because we dont make excuses, we just move on. Theres not a single white person alive today that owned slaves so who are yall still bitching to? Blacks have it easier in america than whites and thats a complete fact. Can I go to college free? No because im not a minority. Can I start a buisness and recieve every govermental kickback and assistance or gants from the SBA? No because all it takes to recieve those things is to be a minority. But who ownes more companies and gets more degrees? Whites or blacks? Yep whites, even tho they have to work 10 times harder for it. Hey another note what are country music songs mostly about? Having kids with a woman you love, working hard, doing your best, defending our freedom, loving a respectful woman, earning a living. What are rap songs mostly about?? Having sex with whores, selling drugs, killing others, spending money on unnecessary things, cheating, strippers. Yup great race to be proud of. Whats the leading cause of death of a black male between 16-24? A black male between 16-24? You all created all of your own problems and all the white people did that are alive today was assist you and make your lives better. Yall bitch about getting brought over here even tho it was your ancestors that stuggled and none of yall but ill bet 1million no nigger would take a free flight back to africa where their ancestors came from.

  8. I didn't expect anything much more from this man than blatant racism by just observing his song title names. I'm also guessing from the times he grew up in had an impact on his way of thinking. A pity he died earlier this month. Not really.

    1. My God, always a fucking sneer or stride remark at hand, huh? What, do you think you're clever or something? Are you the biggest piece of shit I know? Don't answer that.

      If only you died at childbirth. At least I wouldn't have to know of your existence. I turn my nose at you. You are a fool, a clown. Morons pity you. You are a dancer with two left feet. You have no rhythm, no style.

      What did you think your comment would bring? Laughter? Insight? What did you think you were doing when you cursed us with such stupidity, you insipid fowl? You are a dumb man. Real dumb. If stupidity was a field of inquiry such as math or science, you surely would be considered the father. You are a cuckold of the mind, your heart betrays you.

      Perhaps if you delete your comment and rid yourself of such folly we will forget of how badly you embarrassed yourself. Good day.

  10. Since everyone's going to comment I will too. Your excuse for making a racist remark can't be:"well blacks are racist towards white people." That's not how things work,it's simple to solve racism you have to step up. Instead of saying that do something about you being racist also. Yes all races can be racist but you don't need to get all defensive over someone calling a white person racist.
