AGAIN...my thread title proves to be valid. If Jamie Fox, Lil Wayne' Niki Minaj, and Jay Z (ONLY naming a FEW) can make these kinds of "hate lyrics", why is Mr. Sterling being villified?


Because he is a rich white guy...

It seems to only be hate speech if it offends certain groups people.

I wish people spoke with more consideration.

I'm just not willing to make being an idiot illegal.

I work and live with people of different race than me. Race has never been an issue because of a thing called common respect. If you were raised as I was, people start out 100% in your book. Their actions will take them down or bring them up. People give you reason to not like them and it has nothing to do with their skin color. I have never known any slave owners so... Racism is a defense mechanism used to obscure what the real problem is.







Will only their actions or also their CULTURE cause you to not like them? See that is how racism is being expressed in this day. Racist have realized that explaining their hate due to skin tone is getting them too much flack, so they have hidden it in culture. The "thug culture" is what most racist use now.

It's the reason my circle is taking steps to have culture added to the Civil Rights. Closing the loop-holes for racist...

Same way people aren't arrested because of their songs, it's entertainment mostly.

You are missing TorqueythePig's point. And please, I'm not being rude.

They were trying to show you the hipocrisy with accusations of racism. Jay Z and other rappers can not only say the 'n' word and talk about harm they will cause other blacks, but they can also call out other racial slurs and describe harm they will cause them.

But it is no uproar.

If you want to say that blacks can't be labled as racists when they use the slur toward other blacks, then you have to determine if using the 'n' word itself is racist at all.

Either it is or it isn't.




Words have histories, are you aware of the history of when white people used the N word? When white people used the N word it was often followed by a hanging, or beating, or some other atrocity.

Have you heard of Tariq Nasheed and the "Coon Train"? I'm going to need you to go to tariqradio.com and observe what the coon train is.





In case you don't, the Coon Train is basically this: Tariq, a guy who speaks on White Supremacy and how many black people are scared to face it. The Coon Train song is a quick remake of the Soul Train with the hook of "Coon Train is coming, Coon train is coming". It has simple lyrics that imitate black coons saying, "But what about black on black crime, where all the white women at, every white person isn't bad, and we're our own worst enemy."





It's a dig at basically SCARED black people. Black people so scared they don't have the courage to face white supremacy so they instead choose to support white supremacy by repeating what racist white people state. Things which plague the black community but are SYMPTOMS of the bigger issue of white supremacy.





It's the reason that Sterling will be fed to the wolves because he if pushed far enough just may expose systematic white supremacy. He may let the news loose that, "Hey, all of us owners talked in this manner". See that would prove that white supremacy is real.





If we prove white supremacy is real...LOL...in then invalidates all the negative stereotypes racist whites attribute to black people. And most people aren't that stupid, they know deep down that crime, and any other problem is created by economic conditions.





Don't be a coon....be brave enough to face white supremacy...stop being scared!




LOL heheheheheheh!!!



I'm so so sorry...I have to quit laughing in order to tactfully respond.



hehehehe!!1




Oh believe me, I know you have to laugh. Sometimes we must laugh at ourselves to keep from crying.

I "get" Identity Politics - by getting groups of people to act in concert towards certain ends gives them a collective power they wouldn't possess individually.

But getting people to act as part of a collective identity is dangerous, since it nearly almost-always involves some grievance-mongering - which is fine in small doses, but too often ends with things like Kristalnacht, the Killing Fields, and the Tutsi genocide.

The thing that bothers me most is that so many leaders seem to be more interested in the "grievance" aspect, to the point that they're really not about healing our society, but instead, are intent on keeping us fractured and divided.

And the thing about Sterling - heck, I think what happened as far as the NBA punishment was right on - as a private person, he shouldn't be "punished" legally - I mean, people are talking about suing him for what he said - really?

But members of the professional sports franchises are a private collective with their own rules - they can't deprive him of life, liberty, or property - but they can kick him out of their club.

What I didn't like was the over-reaction by many African-American commentators, most of whom are quite wealthy, many of them violently over-the-top in their criticisms of the man - many proudly displaying their own daily racism by saying things like "Yeah, that's how all white people talk about us in private." Which is basically self-justification for hating "white" people.

Sure, he's despicable - but when you crucify a member of one group for saying something, if you're all about justice and equality, then you'd better react the same way when a member of *your* group does the same. Because when you don't, you're advocating a different standard of behavior, a different form of justice based on someone's race - which is injustice and racism -- and hypocrisy.

And if you're advocating for injustice, you're creating more division, and in your supposed fight for justice, you've crossed over to being part of the problem.

Sorry for being so pedantic - just trying to make myself clear.

Oh, and by the way - I heard a young African-American (well, mixed parentage) woman on CNN complain about how this brouhaha was distracting for Angelenos, coming as it did the day before the celebration of the (Rodney King Police Aquittal Riots - I don't recall precisely what she called it.) Is that really a thing? Are the Rodney King riots really celebrated in LA?

Since it now applicable to establish a cost for a racist statement how much did the Reverend Jesse Jackson get charged for calling the president the "N" word?

Race is no longer an issue of fairness it is a weapon used by a party of politicians into a line of thinking contrary to common sense. Because you disagree with someone over the simplest thing it is no longer a different view or opinion, it's a view or opinion decided from Racism. An example of this would be disagreement over Obama Care makes you racist because the president is black.

I ask at what point is real racism over? Could someone point this out, when does the public ignore the divisive attitude of the government and the claims of people crying foul over disagreement. When is the race card going to be removed from the deck? There will always be some idiot on the planet with a racist view, why are we condemning the entire country over it?

I won't throw a fit over the team owner and his comments, that's his problem, and most people have known how to deal with him. Quit giving this guy any publicity good or bad, don't do business with him, just don't be involved with him in any way.

More importantly what should be done with people like this? We put murders in jail and release them after serving their sentence, we rehabilitate drug addicts and alcoholics, he should have the same opportunity to counseling like anyone else. You can even physically abuse your wife, go to counseling and all is forgiven isn't that worse? This guy is a bum, a 2.5 million dollar bum, and removed from his own business bum? I don't think so. But a bum no less.

Racism does tend to be of the most hypocritical things that just about anyone regardless of national origins, ancestry or appearance can lash out.

Good thing that civil rights are a right and not just a mere privilege that can "be blown by an ignorant bigoted individual."

Racism is a psyop. TpsychopathsTB are using it to create divisions on class,religion,sexual orientation and race.
Its really too easy.

The sheeple love their tribalism,grooming their egos and hollywood dramas.
The race psyop was well executed in this case and did what it was supposed to do.
Distract,Divide,Defeat.
Get the sheeple attacking each other because of the shade of wool they have. Its too easy.
The most racists are like brainwashed cult members. Totally and hopelessly indoctrinated like say... alqaeda.


Divide...conquer...then win.

Religion and ethnicity are two different things and trying to compare them is stupid. All races follow christianity to some extent. Prejudice and racism are different, I dont mind people of different races but i dispise religion and those who run around proselytizing.

I agree wholeheartedly with you. Racism is the acidic coating constantly applied to the Main Stream Media's narrative to wedge rather than bring together people of this country. I feel like it's only getting worse, too.

I've always though a good indicator of this is television from the late 70s/early 80s. Race was openly discussed on shows like What's Happening, Good Times, Different Strokes et al. The shows didn't shy away from the struggle to build and maintain equality in the minds of folks, and often showed us the human side of the issue and it's effect on families. The characters weren't "cartoons", either, but thoughtful and deep characters.

Today we seem to have a bunch of caricatured clowns spewing nonsense and race-baiting with every sentence - television's news room especially.

I agree with you 100%.

The double standards being used are getting old and need to go.
