Osama bin Laden's blood had not yet run cold before black celebrities and others turned to social networking websites to forward a fake "message" attributed to civil rights leader Martin Luther King about not celebrating one death.

Now, a Pittsburgh Steelers running back is catching heat for showing sympathy for the slain 9/11 mastermind.

Rashard Mendenhall, who is black, tweeted:

“What kind of person celebrates death? It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side...”

He further showed his ignorance by claiming 9/11 never happened:

“We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style.”

A Steelers spokesperson rushed to distance the organization from Mendenhall's remarks, saying, "I have not spoken with Rashard, so it is hard to explain or even comprehend what he meant with his recent Twitter comments."

It's easy to see why anyone -- outside of the black community -- would fail to comprehend what Mendelhall tweeted.

White people get their cues from their environment, such as books, newspapers, television news, etc. But black people are notorious for distrusting the mainstream media, and some of us don't read. So we get our cues from the streets, and from word of mouth.

And even though the word from the streets might be convoluted and twisted, we still try our best to make sense of the message and to apply logic where there is none.

So no one should be surprised that blacks like Mendenhall are showing sympathy for Osama bin Laden, despite the overwhelming evidence that he was a mass murderer.

That's just the way we are...

    In situation like this, blacks and whites have the same views. However, the whites know the correct words to use and how to use them to sound intellectual. The blacks (not all, I love my people), or at least the less educational ones, don't know how to put what they are saying in an intellectual manner (as in using bad grammar/speech etc). To some in may come off a little "ignorant" and people are quick to dismiss our views, when all in all, we are saying the same thing.

  • Ty

    Is it me or is he making the same comments that we've been making since yesterday? Are we not still talking about people dancing in the streets and popping bottles because someone is dead?

    From the posted comment, he didn't say 9/11 never happened. He is basically saying that there are holes in the 9/11 story and it is. Our own reports on 9/11 dispute what were fed by the media.

  • Iblondon

    *let me clear, I'm not saying the dude is ignorant or used bad grammar. I'm speaking in general. Yes, one can search 9/11 on youtube and see why some people believe it was an inside job. I watched a 7 part docu-series a long time ago and it sure had me thinking.

    It's his opinion whether you agree with it or not but you know how celebs and public figures have to censor themselves.

    Unless he's an structural engineer I don't think he should comment on how a building would react to such trauma though.

    As far as the "most blacks don't read comment" I agree that some don't but the word MOST is very incorrect! I get where you're coming from though Sandra.

  • JDWhitedst

    Why is this a big deal again? He can have his own opinion, just like Sandra gets on here spitting out her opinion on what she thinks is happening in the political arena. There are a lot of conspiracy theories out there about who really played a part in 9/11. Just go to Youtube or Google. You don't have to agree or believe, but we would be naive to think that everything the Gov. tells us is 100% honest to God truth. Yes people died, yes Osama probably had something to do with it...but don't forget or underestimate the fact that both Bush's and Osama were buddies back in the day. The US is actually the people that trained Osama to fight Soviets back in the 80's. Educate yourself!.

  • http://absurdvanity.com AbsurdVanity

    I don't think he is giving bin Laden his sympathy. I think he is simply saying, we should not celebrate the death of a human being and that we will probably never know who was really behind the attacks on 9/11 whether it be the government or the person they are pointing the finger at (bin Laden). The government is really corrupt and you can not believe everything they tell you.

  • Secret

    There is nothing wrong with what he said. I agree with every word. We were basically saying the same thing since it happened.

    If you look at the buildings they exploded way before the plane ever touched them. But hey thats my opinion.

    he didn't say the plane didn't crash the building. he's saying he's still not convinced one plane can DEMOLISH an entire building simply from crashing the top portion. yeah, I get what he's saying.

    Needless to say that we all remember the images. When the plane crashed into the top of the buildings, the entire structures fell, demolition style.

    @ JD I posted that and our connection to the Bin Laden family from the 70's in the Osama post but it was overlooked :( U are so right...we do need to educate ourselves.

    There were 3 buildings involved. The third building fell in the exact same manner and wasn't hit by either plane. How does a 47 story (building 7) building just fall without being touched? Why wasn't this collapse broadcasted? Because they couldn't you a reason why it collapsed. Who collected the insurance from all 3 buildings? Why is the Bin Laden family doing business with Citigroup, General Electric, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and the Fremont Group, as well as Microsoft and Boeing :think:

    Of course I'm generalizing, as most do in these conversations. But generalizations and stereotypes are often rooted in some fact.

    @ Lblondon...I try not to go overboard but the US started experimenting with remote controlled planes years ago. They figured out how to control planes without a pilot on aboard. So, I think the planes were used as missles and the pilots had no control of the planes when they hit the towers and dynamite was used to assist in the demolition. The insurance was also increased a couple of weeks prior. Research that too!

    Whether 9/11 was an inside job or not all those people who died in those towers,planes and on the ground didn't have to happen. I was under ground on the train under the WTC on that day so he can kick rocks. Even if Bin laden and his crew and the 40 thieves were not behind it, oh well !! guilty just by association. I am sure he didn't get the funeral they said he got before they kicked his a$$ in the sea, and i don't blame them there would not be a burial place for his people to come and visit and continue celebrate his life. GOOD RIDENS. can the victims family go visit their love one at a grave? I would be dancing around too just like his people were when the towers fell. All the Bin laden lovers were celebrating like it was carnival in Trinidad the day the towers fell along with the planes crashes that contain children.

    There was a day care center in one of the towers and they got the children out just in time before it came crashing down.

    Yes New Yorkers will never get over a senceless deaths of all those who lost their lives behind politics, oil and religion.

Heck they won't even give our President his props. They wanted to see his birth certificate now the wanna see his college transcripts and now they wanna give credit for OBL's death to Bush so bashing each other to prove to whites that we're not all ghetto, ignorant, thuggish, promiscuous or whatever stereotype they have will do nothing to change their minds.

    If you check out the FBI Website Arrests by race you will see that
    black people outnumber white in only 2 categories that is

    murder 46.9% white 50.9% black

    and

    Robbery 42.2% white 56.3% black

    every other category from burglary to DUIs to all crimes put under $ex. crimes and every drug category White outnumber blacks. What is fact is that black people are more likely to be convicted and imprisoned. That's probably due lack of adequate representation on court and harsher sentences give to black as opposed to white convicted of the same crimes. You can google this for yourself to see. We are not more criminal minded than whites. But in every race there are people who makes mistakes and bad decisions. It's just that in America if you are white you are more likely to be given a second, third or fifth chance than if you are black.

    Here we go again with the generalizations. "We blacks?" "We blacks" can be worse than racist white people with our ignorance. STOP IT! If a white person came on here and said what vjackson said, we'd be calling him/her all kinds of racists, but because it supposedly comes from a black person, it's cool. How sick is that? We are not monolithic people. Some of us read; some of us don't. Some of us are ignorant, many of us aren't. Maybe if people got out more, they'd be more aware of the GREAT things blacks are doing and have done historically, and that not all whites are on top of their game either. It's this mentality that keeps us (as a whole) behind every other race (so to speak). But then again, some of us black folks worship at master's feets, so why are I surprised. Get this...even WHITE people don't speak correct English, are ignorant and don't read. Imagine that? I've said it once, and I'll say it 1,000 times - many of us need to stop being so racist against our own people. I swear sometimes I think I'm reading messages from Klan members.

    That seems a little closed minded. Instead of shooting this brother down, why dont you do a little reseach yourself just to see if his comments has some validity (you may be surprised). There is an abundance of information out there on this subject, including commentary from actual structual engineers about 911 and the demolition of buildings in general, hows its done, what happens etc.. We are in the information age...you can learn/study about anything you want. Thats the beauty of the times we are living in. You really dont know what this brother has read, researched or what. Because one may not be speaking the "lingo" or doesnt have a "degree" in a particular area does not neccesarily mean they dont have some level of knowlege on a particular subject.

    i was only suspicious when the THIRD building (WTC 7) went down demo style (not hit by plane. it remains the only skyscraper ever to be brought down by fire
    Also the pentagon, the gvt is STILL holding on to tapes in regards to that. u barely see a plane hitting the pentagon and the damage wasnt all that compared to 2 planes bringing down 3 WTC skyscrapers.

    having said all that, im not one the "truthers" just something i seen with my own 2 eyes and it seemed fishy

    on topic, :shrugs: he's entitles to his opinion like any other

    Exactly. Instead everyone calling people conspiracy theorists all they have to do is look for themselves

    They should have captured him. He wasn't armed so I don't se why they saw fit to kill him. Osama was resisting but they were the ones with the guns. From what I know in this country, even if you know someone ia guilty you don't kill them on sight, unless your life is in danger than kill or be killed. The United States is the only country in the world with capital punishment.

    "I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy.

Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that"

    If some of the people you love was in those towers you wouldnt of care how the building came down.

    @ Sandra Bin Laden was trained, used, and disposed by the corrupt CIA. He was used as an escape goat by the United States as the sole person responsible for 9/11... The media ran with this information and Bin Laden became public enemy #1.. Anyone can be used as an escape goat...does the name Wayne Williams ring a bell? Remember the US Government along with countless of numbers of European nations are responsible for the Diaspora/Maafa, the same people who came into Africa and stripped us of our land,traditions, and religions...yes Sandra some of us were sold out by rival tribes, with the majority being kidnapped into lives of captivity by Europeans. With that being said, this young man maybe on to something....

    Ok well let me aske you this, would you take a medical diagnosis from someone who isn't a doctor? Would you take legal advice/council from someone who isn't a lawyer? Would you take parenting tips from someone who doesn't have kids?

    I'm not saying that he hasn't does his "reasearch" (which you can find anything on the internet and in books these days and just because it's out there DOESN'T mean it's credible) but I find it hard to believe that he understands the mechanics of structure to make a statement like that. :shrug:

    So NBA players can tweet about partying and ish, but let a man tweet something that makes sense and he's in trouble...WTF???

    I agree with EVERYTHING he said.

    And you dont have be doctor to kno the someone is sick. You don't have to be a lawyer to know that someone should sue. You dont have to be a police officer to know that someone is breaking the law.

  • BlackAdam

    I agree with him...it aint the first time the Bush fam been involved in some conspiracy chit..GW Bush's grandfather was involved in a plot to overthrow the White House back in the 30's...theres a BBC 4 part documentary on youtube called Century of the Self..one part talks about how the government uses fear to manipulate the populace...Osama is dead but there will be another boogyman for Americans to fear...so the public "servants" can steal more of our money and freedoms..

  • RachelRachel

    I've never seen SandraRose make so many comments ever before! Truly you must be a white person as I've suspected so many times. Probably a government agent too. And surely your main posters don't have a clue that you are so full of crap. You continuely insult people of color with such sneaky-hatred that it would Not surprise me at all if you are a member of the KKK. I hear you loud and clear, heifer.

    There was a vidjoe floating around about the 9/11 events in Chicago. It was a Michael Moore kind of documentary about how 9/11 was a U.S. conspiracy..and how jet fuel would not have made the WTC collapse the way it did..and how truck loads of GOLD was removed from the basement of the WTC days before the explosion..and blah, blah, blah. I have the video at home..and I can send it to you, Sandra..if you like. Most folk that viewed it...went for it...without even researching to see if the facts lined up. They just "felt" like it "sounded" right..

  • Chgoprime

    To all the nay sayers implying that this wasn't an inside job (9/11)consider some of these facts. Why did George W Bush feel compelled to personally have Bin Laden's children (here on work visa's) and other relatives flown out of this country 48 hrs after the event?

    Why were records recovered showing that the Bush's and Bin Laden's were long standing business partners? When 9/11 happened Bin Laden was named as the alleged culprit, why did Bush's interest suddenly shift from Bin Laden to Sadaam Hussein? Why? why? why?

    There is definitely more to this than meets the eye, hehe. You'd be a fool as a tax payin citizen not question this bull. Stand for something or fall for everything. I don't believe NUTTIN' the government spews. Blacks should be Leary of the government. Why? Two words, Tuskegee Experiment, I put nothing past them...
