Definitely one of those.... would be a lot funnier if it wasn't so true.

He's the one laughing, all the way to the bank.

You say "Nigger" and the black man in general wants to kill you, Jackson comes along and uses them for money and power and they love him, what fools, if you're going to be that stupid then you deserve anything you get!

All they have to do is say, hey, wait a second, what has he really ever done for us, show me......... nothing!

Same as a Politician, all talk, no action, sales and marketing, chaaaaaa-ching!

Mint, Um I really can't answer you here, except that I can tell you I witnessed Los Angeles BURN with my own eyes, However, Yes OJ Simpson is also a Prime example of "Equal" rights and he too was in Los Angeles.

If the black community ever hopes to acheive true equality then they will have to learn to act equal and stop demanding more rights than everyone else. Instead of trying blend in they choose to set themselves apart from everyone else with their speaking, clothes and enviroment so how can they expect to be treated equally. America is supposed to be a "melting pot" and a melting pot blends material all together and what does not blend together is just slag. The black community will have to learn that none of us ever owned black people and we should not be held responsible for the past.

Hear, hear! If people want to live in this fine country they have to play by the rules. Color doesn't matter, at least it shouldn't. There's nothing wrong with being black. Seems to me a lot blacks (at least the ones we see in the media) are more obsessed about their skin color than the honkeys are.

This guy gets it.

Imus isn't the real bad guy Instead of wasting time on irrelevant shock jock, black leaders need to be fighting a growing gangster culture.
By JASON WHITLOCK - Columnist Thank you, Don Imus. You've given us (black people) an excuse to avoid our real problem. You've given Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson another opportunity to pretend that the old fight, which is now the safe and lucrative fight, is still the most important fight in our push for true economic and social equality. You've given Vivian Stringer and Rutgers the chance to hold a nationally televised recruiting celebration expertly disguised as a news conference to respond to your poor attempt at humor. Thank you, Don Imus. You extended Black History Month to April, and we can once again wallow in victimhood, protest like it's 1965 and delude ourselves into
believing that fixing your hatred is more necessary than eradicating our
self-hatred. The bigots win again. While we're fixated on a bad joke cracked by an irrelevant, bad shock jock, I'm sure at least one of the marvelous young women on the Rutgers basketball team is somewhere snapping her fingers to the beat of 50 Cent's or Snoop Dogg's or Young Jeezy's latest ode glorifying nappy-headed pimps and hos. I ain't saying Jesse, Al and Vivian are gold-diggas, but they don't have the heart to mount a legitimate campaign against the real black-folk killas. It is us. At this time, we are our own worst enemies. We have allowed our youths to buy into a culture (hip hop) that has been perverted, corrupted and overtaken by prison culture. The music, attitude and behavior expressed in this culture is anti-black, anti-education, demeaning, self-destructive, pro-drug dealing and violent. Rather than confront this heinous enemy from within, we sit back and wait for someone like Imus to have a slip of the tongue and make the mistake of repeating the things we say about ourselves. It's embarrassing. Dave Chappelle was offered $50 million to make racially insensitive jokes about black and white people on TV. He was hailed as a genius. Black comedians routinely crack jokes about white and black people, and we all laugh out loud. I'm no Don Imus apologist. He and his tiny companion Mike Lupica blasted me after I fell out with ESPN. Imus is a hack. But, in my view, he didn't do anything outside the norm for shock jocks and comedians. He also offered an apology. That should've been the end of this whole affair. Instead, it's only the beginning. It's an opportunity for Stringer, Jackson and Sharpton to step on victim platforms and elevate themselves and their agenda$. I watched the Rutgers news conference and was ashamed. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke for eight minutes in 1963 at the March on Washington. At the time, black people could be lynched and denied fundamental
rights with little thought. With the comments of a talk-show host most of her
players had never heard of before last week serving as her excuse, Vivian
Stringer rambled on for 30 minutes about the amazing season her team had.
Somehow, we're supposed to believe that the comments of a man with virtually no
connection to the sports world ruined Rutgers' wonderful season. Had a
broadcaster with credibility and a platform in the sports world uttered the
words Imus did, I could understand a level of outrage. But an hourlong press conference over a man who has already apologized, already been suspended and is already insignificant is just plain intellectually dishonest. This is opportunism. This is a distraction. In the grand scheme, Don Imus is no threat to us in general and no threat to black women in particular. If his words are so powerful and so destructive and must be rebuked so forcefully, then what should we do about the idiot rappers on BET, MTV and every black-owned radio station in the country who use words much more powerful and much more destructive? I don't listen or watch Imus' show regularly. Has he at any point glorified selling crack cocaine to black women? Has he celebrated black men shooting each other randomly? Has he suggested in any way that it's cool to be a baby-daddy rather than a husband and a parent? Does he tell his listeners that they're suckers for pursuing education and that they're selling out their race if they
do? When Imus does any of that, call me and I'll get upset. Until then, he is what
he is - a washed-up shock jock who is very easy to ignore when you're not
looking to be made a victim. No. We all know where the real battleground is. We know that the gangsta rappers and their followers in the athletic world have far bigger platforms to negatively define us than some old white man with a bad radio show. There's no money and lots of danger in that battle, so Jesse and Al are going to sit it out.

All I can say is DAMN STRAIGHT, the guy that wrote that, JASON WHITLOCK, is one of the guys that "the blacks" need to listen to, if something like that ever would happen you know who ($$$) would be coming out fighting against that terrible stuff ) that he is teaching "their people" he must be in with whitey or something, any black men with any brain that followed things the way JASON WHITLOCK does would soon find their life changing, they would move up but there would still be the other ones putting them down and talking shit all the time, I have to say to really make an overall difference it may take an entire generation or two but you have to start somewhere, why would you purposely bring your children up to be "victims" and have crappy lives, just to get over, even if you get over like that in the end you're always under.

It is not the white man which keeps the blacks down, it is themselves who do it. They do it with most all rap music and street speak which sets them apart from everyone else. Some black people, usually the ost vocal, do not want equallity with the rest of us, they want to be better and would like nothing more than to have the rest of us as their slaves like was done to their ancestors in the past. That will never happen and they are missing the opportunity for true equality by focusing on this desire.
