He's right though.

There's as many stories confirming this as you could ever care to read. Things are shifting in the 21st century thanks to guys like him who work their ass off and don't take no for an answer. This dude straight up started his own channel. I was out of TV by the time it went on the air, but man, the balls on that guy. Crazy.

Re: Grammys Have Turned Into A Freak Show


let's put this into a classroom setting. forget the slave era...forget the 50's through the 70's....

your child...is going to school, there is a slot on the basketball team, in the school play....for a scholarship...and the blacks make up 14% of the population of your child's school.

your financial need is the same as everyone else, but there's a good chance you're working.

should the black students get the majority of the above mentioned, because of skin color?

No, they're going to get it because they're better at basketball. You think the NBA looks the way it does because of affirmative action? loooooooooooooooooool

Re: Grammys Have Turned Into A Freak Show


Also, it's hilarious when white people say, "forget slavery, forget Jim Crow."

What? No!

You are saying that one of the most liberal groups of people on the planet are racists?

Sounds like a pretty intense process to me.

Entertainment has been racist forever. I know you know a bunch of white boys didn't come up with rock and roll.

As long as there are clear examples of black artists and executives being shut out due to their race, the "whining" will continue.

As well there should be.
