RIP: ‘Soul Train’ Creator Don Cornelius Dead of Apparent Suicide

The music world is mourning the loss of innovator Don Cornelius, who died of an apparent suicide this morning.

From the NY Daily News:

“Soul Train” creator and host Don Cornelius, who brought R&B into America’s living rooms with his long-running television show, committed suicide Wednesday, according to TMZ.com

The 75-year-old Cornelius was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head around 4 a.m. inside his Sherman Oaks, Calif., home, the celebrity web site reported.

His show, dubbed “The Hippest Trip in America,” presented stars like Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin and Barry White to a national television audience.

Cornelius, with his deep voice, stylish clothes and Afro, provided a hipper alternative to Dick Clark and “American Bandstand” when his show debuted on Aug. 17, 1970.

    I read on another site he told a judge in 2009 when he was going thru his divorce that he wanted to “hurry up and get this divorce finalized beofre he died”. I think he was suffering from something and wanted to end it on his own terms. I dont condone it but we dont know what he may have been going thru privately. RIP

    Still trying to figure that out…my step-dad was 73 and shot himself as well. My mom says that he was getting forgetful but no dementia (although I beg to differ – he was leaving food cooking, forgetting that he was cooking; driving all over town because he forgot where he was heading.)

    **************************************************

    i had suicidal thoughts once, when i was in college, (over some niigroid that was ultimately shot dead robbing somebody) and wasn’t even thinking about my family. young people are caught up in what THEY are going through. i often think back to that and how close to the edge i was. what a WASTE of a life that would have been.

    some people, ESPECIALLY the older ones, actually think they’re doing their family a good deed by removing the burden of having to take care of them. some of them are in physical and/or mental pain without the means to get treated.

    Joe didn’t do anything wrong. HE didn’t witness anything. McQuerry (another coach) is the one that actually witnessed what happened.

    How can you go to the police talkin bout “I HEARD…” Gossiping and chit. You can’t even be called as a witness with HEARSAY.

    What KILLS me is half the muthafluckas complaining bout Joe Pa “ain’t do enough” got molesters in they own family they know about and they ain’t said chit in years. You know it and I know it. Just made for a good story because who the hell knows Sandusky and/or McQuerry? No one would care if they got locked up or anything. But Joe Pa makes for a good story.

People are always so quick to judge those who kill themselves and make comments like they’re going straight to hell but depression is a real disease that will make you do all kinds of things, including take your own life. Until you’ve walked in the shoes of someone who felt they had nothing else to live for, than you really can’t judge them all you can do is pray for the family and loved ones left behind.

    Just like (most) people’s mamas tell them as kids, if you don’t have nothing nice to say than stfu and keep it moving

    Like I said, it made for good story to vilify Joe Pa so Penn State had to cover their azz by making Joe Pa the scapegoat. Period. That’s what happened and there’s no denying it. :shrugs:

    You should go and see the movie ‘The Grey’ this weekend. ‘The Grey’ is a metaphor for living in limbo between birth and death. You live until you die. Everyone is born with an expiration date, but none of us know what it is. Some people decide to choose their own expiration date rather than wait for the inevitable unknown. The message in The Grey was: there is no God, there is no hope, and the wolves of the world always win

    Damn… RIP Don. People are always so quick to judge those who kill themselves and make comments like they’re going straight to hell but depression is a real disease that will make you do all kinds of things, including take your own life. Until you’ve walked in the shoes of someone who felt they had nothing else to live for, than you really can’t judge them all you can do is pray for the family and loved ones left behind.

    Just like (most) people’s mamas tell them as kids, if you don’t have nothing nice to say than stfu and keep it moving

    *****************
    so…..if you’re depressed, you don’t think that there is a higher power that can heal that depression that you’re going through? Personally, I think that taking your life is basically saying that the problem is too big for you AND God.

    It’s true that cover-ups and conspiracies like this happen all the time in families. Doesn’t make it right. And he knew what was going on, whether it was third hand knowledge or not, and he didn’t do sht about it. I think that makes him just as guilty as everyone else involved.

For instance, when he jumped in that ice cold water, the freezing water alone should have killed him within minutes. And don’t let me start on that stupid 40 foot jump into the pine trees :eyeroll:

    He didn’t do ENOUGH. Which he said.

    Like I said, you can’t even be a witness with THIRD HAND knowledge so exactly what was he expected to do?

    Why isn’t McQuerry, the ACTUAL WITNESS vilified??????????

    Why isn’t Sandusky, the ACTUAL PERPATRATOR vilifed?

    Ms. Everything says:

    @Feline.. Depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain that makes you not think completely clearly. It affects your mental, your physical, every bit of your daily life. So no, a person who is severely depressed is not thinking that there will be better days ahead and is not necessarily thinking that God will pull them through. Again, if you have not walked in someone’s shoes and been at the place where you’re ready to end it all just to have some peace, if only for a second then you can not judge. I believe in God, love HIM but simple prayer and faith will not always pull someone out of that kinda pain. It takes a strong, strong, strong support system to pull someone out of real depression. You have your opinion, cool but I’ve lived through it and know facts :shrugs:

    Why are we assuming that he man was depress and just off hisself without trying to handle it? Depression may not have anything to do with it, maybe was pain related. Maybe he just didn’t want to continue to suffer everyday when he knew his time was coming to end soon anyway. And even if it was depression, you don’t know if he has sought out help for it.

    free says:

    i had suicidal thoughts once, when i was in college, (over some niigroid that was ultimately shot dead robbing somebody) and wasn’t even thinking about my family. young people are caught up in what THEY are going through. i often think back to that and how close to the edge i was. what a WASTE of a life that would have been.

    some people, ESPECIALLY the older ones, actually think they’re doing their family a good deed by removing the burden of having to take care of them. some of them are in physical and/or mental pain without the means to get treated.
    ——————-
    When i was 19 i had a friend take her life ove her sone father. she was so distraught she didnt even think of the child she was leaving behind. Tho I will never claim to know all of the details, i know she was being abused and felt that it was easier to to just end her life. He saw her do it…and just walked away. I cant say I agree with her choice but I can agree that when you feel that low, its prob hard to look at what that decision will do to others around you.

    Terri from my own personal experience, severe daily pain and depression often go hand in hand. You can’t live through that kind of pain and not be depressed, especially if there is no end in sight for that pain. And one thing I’ve noticed, drs are quick to tell a patient that there’s nothing they can do after a certain point… at which point it’s hard to have a desire to keep on living knowing you’re going to be in excruciating pain every day of the rest of your life. That’s enough to make the strongest person decide to just give up

    I don’t agree at all with Joe getting all the sht heaped on him. Pretty much all of that should be on Sandusky and the other bastards involved in this child sex ring. No argument there.

    I don’t think Joe deserved to pay with his life either. Again, that should be Sandusky as well. But ultimately I still think losing his job was right even if the real reasons (like the taking heat off the actual baby rapers) for it weren’t. Cause by saying he didn’t do enough, you acknowledge that he could have done more.

    BUT, what are you to do if you DON’T KNOW????????????????

    If someone said they THINK they heard your Mom was molesting a child, are you calling the police? <<not rhetorical… please answer

    _____________________

    Still trying to figure that out…my step-dad was 73 and shot himself as well. My mom says that he was getting forgetful but no dementia (although I beg to differ – he was leaving food cooking, forgetting that he was cooking; driving all over town because he forgot where he was heading.)

    Still no excuse for leaving behind a family that loves you and willing to take care of you NO MATTER WHAT!! It’s been two years but I’m still pissed!!

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    This is a normal reaction, just some don’t care to admit it-

    sorry for your loss

    if we can get angry at God, I’m certain it’s not unfathomable to believe someone would be angry about their loved one taking their life, people say alot of things about how they would deal with a situation, until they actually have to DEAL with it

    Praying God gives you peace~

    “I don’t agree at all with Joe getting all the sht heaped on him. Pretty much all of that should be on Sandusky and the other bastards involved in this child sex ring. No argument there.

    I don’t think Joe deserved to pay with his life either. Again, that should be Sandusky as well. But ultimately I still think losing his job was right even if the real reasons (like the taking heat off the actual baby rapers) for it weren’t. Cause by saying he didn’t do enough, you acknowledge that he could have done more.”
    _______________________________________________________________________________

    We are in 100% agreement. And HE said he could have done more. But to label this man a monster and chit like that (not that you did) is complete idiocy and ignorance.

    I was raised Baptist by a very God fearing grandmother. I even went to church with my sisters and step-father. But I never felt what I was told I was supposed to feel and was never satisfied with the answers I got as to why.

    As an adult, I sought to answer my own questions and the things I learned about God and organized religion in general were not at all what I was taught but they made complete sense to me.

    So while I’m spiritual, I am not at all religious and don’t believe in God or The Bible or anything to do with either.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Depression is a demon that takes a whole of you and just won’t let go, that’s how I look at it, when you are in it at the time, it doesnt feel like there is a way out, it can make you consider suicide for relief, that’s why I say it’s a demon, cause it encourages you to take your life or feel like there is no hope

    thank God he brought you thru, and I’ve alos struggled with depression in the past & my faith also brought me thru-lot’s of praying and recognizing that it was an attack of the devil, and that waiting the feelings out & seeking counseling helped me overcome depression.

    It’s so easy to say never, and for some it may be true, but I don’t think it’s a sign of weakness, I truly believe it’s a chemical balance & it’s definitely a medical issue, because if being strong-willed alone solved it, trust me everyone would be cured.

    I totally agree with all of that. I’m not saying Joe is this monster that should live on the face of the earth and I’m not putting him in the same boat as Sadusky. All I’m saying is, I think his firing was justifiable, but it should of happen to all that was involved, not just him.

    Joe Pa wasnt fired because of that sandusky shait… Penn had been wanting to get rid of him for years but he was such a figure that you couldnt just fire him… so when this shait came up it gave the folks a Penn a chance to get rid of him. Think about it… Cops knew and other coaches knew at least about what someone saw no one investigated it because no one wanted to bring the Program down. They all are accoutable

    Didn’t you sign something that states otherwise?”
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Yes, a lot of professions are required to report what was “thought.” Like Doctors and Child Care Services and basically people TRAINED to recognize things. For example, I’m an auditor. If I audit someone and they have the tell-tale signs of cooking their books I’m required to address it in the report because I THINK that’s what is occuring. But the key difference is that:
    1. they are TRAINED to do it
    2. they witness it first hand or have some sort of supporting evidence

    Joe Pa was NEITHER! I mean, you really stretching over there.

    And yes, I do coach a football team and I would be dayum near homicidal mad if I found out any of my (i refer to them as “mine”) kids were being abused. And yes, I would tell the police if I suspected anything was happening under any circumstance.

    But if someone said “I heard something about somebody that might not be right in some way some how.” Exactly what am I telling the police?? There has to be some VALIDITY there that would pass the common sense test right?

    Yall still crazy says:

    I think that people that have been molested feel a whole other way about situations and what they/we would do

    That’s probably why our views seem so harsh to some.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I was just thinking the same thing. I got so pissed with a male friend of mine once because he was really arguing to me and my girlfriends that child molestation doesn’t happen that much and he’s hole attitude toward was so low key, I could tell that he “thankfully” never experienced it in any kind of way. But how can you argue with people who have experience it, about the seriousness of it.

    Sorry, man, I wouldn’t want you coaching my child if you have to have hard core facts first before you report the possibility that someone could be molesting them. Suspension is all I need. If I turn out to be wrong then so be it. A lot of the time, the facts don’t come until after. That’s why you report it so that it can be investigate.

    But that is my point Its not up to you to decide if the claim hold any weight thats for the police to decide. So with all of that said i would report any and everyone that someone comes to me talking about they heard or think they saw a child being molested. And i mean ANYONE!

    I do agree that the attention was in someways point the wrong way since the ones that need to be looked after are the kids involved they are the ones we nees to focus on and be sure they are okay…

    Right. But being a victim myself and my experience with it, I don’t take it lightly. Joe may not had his own suspension, but there was someone who did, that came to him about it. And the man admitted his self that he could have done more, so to me that was saying something. But I don’t like how it all fell on him either. If you wasn’t following the case, you would have thought Joe was the one being accused of the action itself.

    I’m with you. Really I am. Joe Pa SAID he could have done more and no one is denying it. But to act like he was just callous doesn’t speak to the facts. He told “authorities”… just the wrong “authorities.”

    And, I don’t take it lightly either and I don’t have kids but I love all my nephews and 1 niece like they mine and if we suspect someone abuseing them, we taking that charge cause we wouldn’t be an investigation on molestion. There would be one on a homicide. <<real talk

I heard too that he had Alzheimers, he was old school cool, so the effects that disease are debilating to a man like that. He had a good life RIP Don.
