I lol`d at the prison sex thing about saggy pants. It`s not true.

But everything else he said is spot on.

I think it`s clear the races cannot coexist.
Shoot the whites. Kill them off.
It`s the only way.

It`s not about color, it`s about attitude and culture. Many whites and hispanics are being sucked into the "thug life" as well.

He never stated it was the right using the subject, he stated it was the right questioning why the [quote]so called liberal media[/quote] wasn`t addressing other problems within the black community.

They beat the Trayvon Martin case into the ground making it something it wasn`t while completely ignoring larger issues.

Well, that`s what they`d say if a white guy said this. I`m just being fair.

It is a fact. They latched on to the Martin case and used it as a pulpit to preach racial disparity. They didn`t speak out against the kids that killed Antonia West or Kala Golden being killed, her baby taken. The point is, they can`t say anything negative about their own, but any little slip by another race, is magnified ten fold. The time for free passes, is over.

I think everything he said applies to EVERY person stuck in poverty, not just black people. I get frustrated when I see my grand nephew wearing the saggy pants, enlarging his earlobes and all those tattoos that I know will limit job opportunities for him. White kids say the n-word and gay this, f*ggot that. Spend more time texting or gaming than on their education or working. Maybe there needs to be more constructive peer pressure instead of seeing people do stupid things and just ignore it because you don`t want to be unpopular for pointing it out. It`s a fact that when people around you are setting a high example, you up your own game. That`s why we can`t let abandoned houses stay run down because people stop caring about keeping up their own house and everything goes to hell. Same goes for everything else. Lemon is right that the right is just using the subject for their own agenda, not to really help black people.

wheres my slow clap button?


but really, the issue with race today is simple: blame. radical blacks will do everything in their power to twist and distort real truth into blame of the white man.

to any black people on here, i ask you one question: have I, or any other white person IN YOUR LIFETIME, enslaved, harmed or maimed you? or your father? or your grandfather? (that could be likely, but it goes to show the time gap).

I do NOT care about the color of a person but the character of that person. every race has its own n igger, honkey or otherwise. its up to YOU to choose to rise above that. sure, theyll still be some ignorant people on every side that lumps everyone together but for the most part, no race wants to hate another.

"Dude`s out of touch."

Out of touch with what causes people to sh*t where they eat? Please. These things being said by a black person is the closest we`re going to get to a national dialogue on what the actual racial issues are in America. You can`t make him any blacker, and if his message will be selectively dismissed on the basis of a character assassination, then our cause is already lost.

Forgiveness. Black/White race issues will NEVER go away until the Black community forgives the white community. It`s the same as a family that has a falling out. Until the person who harmed the other forgives, the issue will never go away.

I agree with what he`s said.

However his whole speech will have lost credibility in his target audience`s eyes as being the word from an Uncle Tom, seeing as he admitted to being raised in predominantly white neighbourhoods. Dude`s out of touch.

I`m not afraid to. In fact I`ve said all that and been called a racist for it. Except the trash thing, didn`t say that.
