In a video, he noted:

"How the f*ck they gonna put Roots on on Memorial Day? They gonna just keep beating that sh*t in our heads of how they did us, huh? I don't understand America. They just want to keep showing the abuse that we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago. But, guess what? We taking the same abuse."

The Gin and Juice rapper went onto express that he had ZERO interest in watching a program about the cruelty inflicted upon African American slaves. Snoop continued:

"When you all going to make a motherf*cking series about the success black folks is having? The only success we have is Roots and 12 Years a Slave and sh*t like that, huh? F*ck ya'll. I ain't watching that sh*t. F*ck them television shows. Let's create our own sh*t based on today, how we live, and how we inspire people today."

And it seems that several of the A-lister's fans agree with him. One follower commented:

"Amen! We have so much good happening today and Hollywood just focuses on the bloody past."

Huh. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the full video for yourself (below)!
