The black rapper named Nick Conrad’s song is called “Pendez les blancs!” [Hang the Whites!]. The chilling lyrics below need no further explanation:
I enter day care centres, I kill white babies,
Grab them quickly and hang their parents,
Take them apart to pass the time.
Entertain the black children, of all ages, large and small.
Whip them hard, do it boldly
Let it stink of death and piss with blood
Hanged from the trees against the starry void
Let this foul fruit create a fascinating spectable
Pale and funny
Take all their life away from them, let them be lifeless objects from now on
Possess them, put your names on their wills
No feelings, let them all die at the same time
Set an example, torture them in front of a group…
Hang them, hang them all, hang the whites” [Refrain]
Surprisingly, Nick Conrad’s peculiar racist song is available on Spotify, iTunes and other major platforms.
And Conrad is not new to the racial debate either. In a 2016 interview, the rapper boasted about black racial superiority. “The black man has intellectual and physical capacities like no other human. We are all extraordinary beings,” he said at the time.
His latest video, uploaded to Youtube on September 17, had several thousand views before being removed on Wednesday after complaints. Clips from the video which include calls to kill white people and their children, however, are still available on various Youtube accounts and other sites.
Conrad tried to defend his lyrics inciting racial murder, by claiming that it is “fiction” and that he “wanted to reverse the roles of the white man and the black man”. But the rapper not only sings about violence, but graphically displays it. In the video a white victim is dragged along a pavement and kicked in the head by the rapper and his associate.
French politicians, including Marine Le Pen, have called on authorities to remove it from the web and prosecute the author.
“He must be prosecuted for incitement to racial hatred and condemned for these ignoble and irresponsible remarks,” said Christian Estrosi, the mayor of Nice, in a tweet.
The President of France’s National Rally (formerly Front National) Marine Le Pen said the video was an example of “anti-white racism that no self-proclaimed expert or media speaks of”. Le Pen added: “There is nothing artistic about what is, pure and simple, a call for hatred and murder!”
Alors que de nombreux compatriotes subissent un racisme anti-Blanc dont aucun expert autoproclamé ni média ne parle, cette provocation ne doit pas rester impunie. Il n’y a rien d’artistique dans ce qui est purement et simplement un appel à la haine et aumeurtre ! MLP #NickConrad https://t.co/MMbyQsu14Q

The video became the top trending topic on Twitter in France on Wednesday. Before his call to murder whites, Conrad had been virtually unknown, with reportedly only 40 monthly listeners on music-streaming platform Spotify, Sky News reported.
French government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said he condemned the “hateful, nauseating lyrics in the strongest possible terms”.
