DL Hughley

Comedian DL Hughley is infuriated with Chicago PD over a controversial sting to catch Nike thieves. Hughley posted a message on Instagram.com targeting the cops who parked a truck full of Nike sneakers near a basketball court and waited for their prey to take the bait.

"Chicago cops parked a truck of #NIKE sneaks at a basketball court in the hood & waited in the cut," he wrote early Wednesday. "When teens took 'em, they got arrested. If cops set up white kids like this in the burbs, it'd be entrapment," Hughley fumed.

But his social media followers commended the cops for teaching the youngsters a life lesson about stealing. Many blamed the parents, saying the lack of home training results in children who lack morals or ethics and exercise poor judgment.

What do you think?

    That shit is disgraceful...

  • hi-liter

    Yeah, that WAS a Set Up....but was the truck locked and they broke into it? or did they park the truck there and leave the doors open? That sort of thing can be very tempting to youths.

  • FukkFolks2018

    DL your language is bad.

    But I agree. The kids shouldnt have been arrested.

    They have used bait trucks in previous instances to catch thieves/criminals. Adult ones.

    I dont agree for use for children however. Its not the police place to teach anyone kids a damn thing.

  • Rayne

    That’s messed up. Hell if I needed shoes I would’ve stolen them too cause I can’t afford them. We’re always getting the short end of the stick.

  • Oh Tommie

    This is nothing. One of the three letter agencies entices repeat offenders to commit what turns out to be fake stash house drug robberies that meet a certain weight...that weight translates to minimum 20 years. Again, all fake and no real drugs or real stash houses but people are getting put away for decades when they were minding their business before being baited by the gov

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I blame the police for this particulary shit bc this is how black kids get scared of police and run and then get their asses shot. FEAR. Stop looking at the 13 inch tube TV and lets look at the great big 55 inch flat one. #BigpictureVsSmallpicture.

    why would cops waste their time doing this?? makes no sense, there are bigger fish to fry and you best believe if i see a truck full of nikes on a basketball court, i would assume it's free giveaway so i'm taking a pair or two

  • Trace da Ace

    was the truck locked or wide open??? I'm gonna need more info....either way...them kids should not be arrested, because that is entrapment. This is just a prime example of how cops set black people up....if they are setting the kids up with shoes....no telling who else they set up....this was a bitch ass move.....and they wonder why folks dont trust cops...smdh

  • hi-liter

    why would cops waste their time doing this
    ______________________________________________
    This is easier and are guaranteed arrests that will make the City money (bail, court costs, etc.)

  • FukkFolks2018

    AND police need to be screened more before they hire these murderous pigs. Spend money on weeding out murderous cops in re our youth and men vs trying to entrap kids. I am mad and hungry now. FOH

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Think about it, they used Nike shoes and put them in a bad neighborhood. The whole thing reeks of racism. The fact they wasted tax payer dollars on some harty har wink wink bs is disturbing. They had like 50 shootings in 3 days, more then enough to keep them busy......

  • Trace da Ace

    hello!!! ^^^^ all of this!!! They so worried about us...they need better vetting of these bitch ass police....

    oh..and I got a chicken breast and some green beans I can share with you.....fucking diet sucks balls.. I want a damn cheeseburger.

  • SpillyNillie

    THIS SHIT right here is why we as Black parents are forced to have very specific discussions with our children....

    It's "steal" DL..."steal"

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Funny thing is the government did this same thing with guns in Cali (sans the sting). Drove a train full of military style weapons into the hood and parked it. Literally how gangs were armed. More of the same....

  • Jersey Girl

    It was open.. so it was a set up! SMH!

  • BingBangBoom

    Coke and Crack as well... Dang shame. That's why as blacks we must stay smarter and stronger and resist the temptations

  • BingBangBoom

    All the REAL crime in Chicago and they still doing bait bus type stings?

  • Trace da Ace

    see that is bullshit...hell they could have parked it in the middle of the suburbs and they white kids would have did the same damn thing!!!

  • Trey

    stealing is stealing

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I agree parents should teach their children, but I agree with D.L. That chit ain’t right!

    They should park the van and wait for murderers! That seems to be a bigger problem.

  • Coy little wink

    These keystone cops need a real fukking job ? this was time and resources wasted on racial profiling entrapment

  • Ni Ni

    I agree. Whoever approved this should be fired as well the cops involved.

  • Phillybruh

    The higher ups ok'd this fuckery!

  • FukkFolks2018

    I been bringing my lunch past 2 weeks. I done ate it by 11 every day lol... and thus am still hungry. Soon as my work homie get off her 12:30 call we going to get us a smoothie. Good for ya yet filling lol.

  • Trace da Ace

    girl!! I'm about to tear this hummus and pretzels up....supposed to be my "afternoon snack" but that chicken ain't do nothing but make me mad.....

  • Candance

    I'm going with DL on this one.... shame on them, they should have done better...
    I get it kids should't steal... ok, but for real????? Look at the bigger picture!

  • Candance

    My 11 year old even said, "naw.... thats crazy, you cant set them up and then arrest them. We all have the potential to go to jail if its that easy, everyone is tempted by something." K. Kennedi

  • Pnthr

    Of all the things the police could be using their resources towards they decide to waste time trying to trap kids stealing sneakers? And they say there isn't an agenda to mass incarcerate black males. They want to get them early.

    How about some stings on these pill selling white boys, pedophiles, sex traffickers and the crazy ones plotting mass shootings ?

  • Renee26

    Steel...

  • Ni Ni

    Ikr, put some meth in a vehicle and leave it in their neighborhood.

  • MissHarlem

    I seen the video last week and was annoyed. That man told the cops why won't you do this in your neighborhood? He turned red. Exactly

  • MissHarlem

    They should put a truck full of opiods in a walgreens parking lot in surburbia and watch all the meth heads white druggies come flocking. Chile please and miss me with the narrative of fckry.

  • iWasteTime

    Shout out to the community activists in Chicago for recognizing what it was.
    Shout out to the one who taped his conversation with the cops.
    Filled truck, left half open and showed up in more than one neighborhood.
    There are countless videos of residence in these neighborhoods confronting the police and tapping what happened. I believe this netted 2 attempted theft arrest ... smh

  • Renee Lovelace

    BITCH, PLEEZE

  • J2PC

    Where are all the Democrat leaders speaking in outrage against this setup?? -they are too busy peddling emotional fluff or worthless BS than that of real substance to help Black folks.

    No wonder Black voters today are left uninspired to vote them into gov't jobs because that's all they want is their job or political without giving Black folks nothing worthwhile back in return. Enough already!

  • J2PC

    They have been setting up & framing poor Blacks for decades. -glad somebody called them out on it. Why not do this in their own neighborhood?

  • MissHarlem

    Let me put this out here but I can get behind DL now. His comedy wasn't my cup of tea but I NEVER ragged him and at times supported. Where he gets it from me is his CONSTANT voice in regards to us. He goes on fox etc and put that knee on their necks which prompted his current book when Becky tried him on air. Also taking accountability and calling yourself a coward in terms of your outside child (rip to the baby) and the conversation between you and your wife on black love ??. King keep speaking and using your platform for us no matter the hits you take. We all fall short however its the journey of how you get up that speaks to me. Respect https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2a81b963ac8d1f8b5ffc8f49ed63f543ebeb13addbe0ed8b397bb6d0d56b2549.gif

  • Trey

    Is there a video?.......This reminds me of those bait cars

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I know, I cringed seeing that, too.

  • J2PC

    Why not get the word out via social media to Black folks in poor neighborhoods to warn them about the different setups to think that if it looks to easy & too good to be true, it is certainly a setup to trap them into those for profit jails & prisons?? -no excuses when you've been warned. ijs

  • Soon2BWife

    Don’t they have other business to attend to like solving the nearly 60 shootings and 10 murders that occured this weekend?

  • Trey

    The problem is the sting was specifically targeted at blacks....
    at the same time....need to teach your kids

  • supastar

    Chicago worrying about the wrong thing. You trying to trap children by putting a truck full of sneakers in front of them???? Really??? this what we doing now. You should be focused on the killing spree that landed 12 people dead and 66 wounded. Try getting the guns off the streets.

  • supastar

    and go to rehab not jail.

  • Solstice

    ?? Thank you! ? say it louder for the folks sleep in the back! ??

  • MissHarlem

    Nope straight jail like how they treat us. Nothing less fck that.

  • BingBangBoom

    Look when the president considers sending the feds into your city the city and state should be concerned. Not wasting tax payers money on baiting some sneaker headed kids.

  • MissHarlem

    Black neighborhood=stealing
    White neighborhood=entrapment

  • BingBangBoom

    Lol That's your people...

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Shut up

  • Solstice

    That is like putting a truck load of groceries in front of the hungry and starving. I agree. There are more pressing issues that do not require baiting people.

  • Bdot

    Just more proof that police don't aim to SOLVE PROBLEMS in black & brown neighborhoods. All that violence over the weekend and you out here devoting all these resources to Shoe Baiting. Smh

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

    I agree!!! Also you have to look at how many kids in black neighborhoods cant afford NIKEs or Jordans!!! So whats the alternative. They lucky people were not killed during that sting with all the guns on chicago streets!!!

  • supastar

    Make me!

  • the guest

    THIS Nike sting operation is RACIST!

    We need black people especially black youth to detox off Nike and brands that enslave the mind and disenfranchise.

  • Coy little wink

    All the white soccer moms driving Volvo suvs will be there in their athletic leisure wear ?

  • supastar

    Exactly.. they trying to distract us with this nonsense.

  • TheLibraEffect

    It's obvious that these kids areny't taught right from wrong. Why do brown folks get mad at others when they aren't doing their job? Idk if it was wide open. They knew damn well the shoes weren't for them. I can't stand a thief or a liar.

  • supastar

    i agree, the children are wrong but when the cops deliberately try to trap you by enticing you with some Jordans they are just as wrong.

    Of course, they have new billion dollar prison compounds to fill .

  • Rayne

    If I was a police woman I probably would’ve broken her damn arm and said she was resisting.

  • WhoKnew

    Just wow! Is this what it has come to? So the next sneaker round-up that goes down instead of arresting them they're just going to shoot all of them? Then the next thing you know they're going to say the shootings were justified because they alone are responsible for all the crime in the entire city of Chicago. You name the crime, pick just one and they will be blamed for all of them.

    I'm not copping a plea for these kids because wrong is wrong and I'm sure they knew better. Still, as my GMA used to say 2 wrongs don't make it right.

  • GAPeach

    They definitely shouldn't have been stealing, but this was entrapment all day long. I don't really feel bad for them. They knew better.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Nobody said stealing wasnt wrong you cunt. But lets not pretend that they would EVER put an open trailer at a damn skateboard park full of skateboards to entrap Liam and Oliver over in white ass Deerfield.

    But they put an open one at a basketball court in inner city Chicago full of SHOES to entrap Raqwon and Darius....and it IS NOT RIGHT. So fukk outta here with your shit on this fine ass fukkin day you clueless ass whore.

    I think just like wypipo call grand theft auto-joyriding. Riots- uprisings, rape- sowing their wild oats...So in this case I think kids will be kids, and , yes, this would NEVER have happened in a white neighborhood.

    The police actually left an open box car filled with guns on the train tracks in the hood in L.A, My nephews witnessed it. What do you think disenfranchised people will do?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Of course it's the parent/parents fault. Who else is their to blame. Let me give you an example. A parent doesn't work,you child come home everyday with stuff that you didn't purchase (i.e. bike,basketball,video game,cellphone, moneyetc). Instead of the parent questioing the child about how he obtain alla that shidt,she turns and look the other way, knowing it was ill-gotten but she allows him to keep it. Thats wrong,you're sending a message that it's ok to take shidt that doesn't belong to you. Hes gonna lack morals,display poor judgement end up in jail or dead.

  • CookieMobster

    Folks have to be held accountable for their actions. No matter what color. If you steal your behind should be locked up. Shoot even if I find $$ laying on the floor, if it isn't mine, it's going to the customer service desk. I'm not getting that back 10 fold. Nope ?

  • CaramelDream

    I and my husband have worked all our lives and our kids haven't wanted to any of their needs and got more than the average kid. HOWEVER, at my daughter's first job, they planted money near her and she took it. How am I to blame? Many adults would take the bait. I'm so sick of the parent blaming . . . these are kids but they have their own minds and freewill.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    He needs to call out the parents, for young people having this consumer mindset, and no ommonsense. SMH!

  • Junkanoo

    When are they going to start entrapping Americas surplus of white collar criminals . I guess corporate America wants even more cheap labor to exploit and the cops are willing to help.

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    DL is right?????
    Is there not ENOUGH crime to fight in Chicago? The cops have to acquire sneakers to LURE KIDS who have no money into committing PETTY THEFT? That’s a shit show par for the course of America.

    Be serious. If kids at a basketball court see tennis shoes just sitting in a open semi truck they are going to grab a pair. You out a truck full of candy in front of kids they’re going to take it. These cops could be out here responding to domestic violence calls, and mental health calls, and accidents, as shootings but they wasting their time baiting broke ass kids in the ghetto with shoes. Come on now. Tax payers not paying them for that bs

  • Applebootay

    Alternative facts.The BAIT TRUCK....STING is way to legit for what these pigs do...... It was somewhere near an old abandoned court ). To our (Chicagoans) knowledge, no one was arrested as of yet as we witnessed (via video) the officers removing the truck after activists confronted and demanded that they remove it. The neighborhood is West Englewood, one of if not, the most impoverished communities in Chi-Town with one of the highest rates of homicide.....and they wonder why we don't trust them.

  • Applebootay

    The neighborhood is West Englewood, one of if not, the most impoverished communities in Chi-Town so if you place a plate of food in front of an hungry person........this neighborhood isn't where kids are getting more than the average kid like yours....they're getting less the half the average of a poor person...

  • Applebootay

    It was a basketball court, per say and it wasn't just Nikes, it had loubotin red bottoms too....This is call ENTRAPMENT....get real...

    The neighborhood is West Englewood, one of if not, the most impoverished
    communities in Chi-Town so if you place a plate of food in front of an
    hungry person........this neighborhood isn't where kids are getting more

    All of this was to get the kids a criminal record, and put their names in the system! White folks hard at work, to destroy us!

  • Applebootay

    So wait, you acknowledge that is was entrapment, and I'm sure you can read that its even more fked up that the entrapment is being done in one of the most impoverished community right?

    In criminal law, entrapment is a practice whereby a law
    enforcement agent induces a person to commit a criminal offense that
    the person would have otherwise been unlikely or unwilling to commit. Buuuuttt...they knew better....log off.

    It does seem like a waste of time doesn't it? It's bait.

  • MJ

    They do. Are you unfamiliar with Dateline NBC's "To Catch a Predator" series? It was good television while it lasted, but cops and Feds are still conducting stings.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I'm going to play the devil's advocate... where is the proof this was a bait truck? How do I know the truck was full of Nike boxes? If the truck was being used as bait, why were there so many obvious police cars and uniformed officers standing nearby? For all I know, the truck broke down and the driver called police to protect his/her haul.

    Furthermore, entrapment is hard to prove, because police are allowed to lie and use deception during an investigation. In a best case scenario, entrapment would require an officer to verbally entice you to commit a crime. And even if that were the case, there's a thing called predisposition to be considered. If the suspect has a history of prior criminal activity, no judge or jury is going to believe he or she was tricked into committing a crime.

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    Definately.

  • Waya Hedia

    "definitely" . And no, that's just BS. As is the concept that all black people are thieves. Poor thing. Yashara Bat Sht Crazy.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    My first thoughts, too !

    It’s like they troll black drivers when they can go to almost any urban street corner and find criminal activity!

    Plenty of people with arrest warrants, store owners buying stolen goods, EBT theft, drug sales, etc., but prefer to stop drivers and pedestrians that often turned into unnecessary or warranted fatalities!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    SAD!

  • bella28498 .

    They do not lure pedophiles in like they diligently go after black men for petty crimes. If they did Hilary Clinton would be locked up right along with all the elites in Hollywood. Jail is just for u ni99 as

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Darn right there is! You let me find a suitcase filled with money here. I may have to pray a couple of hail Mary's before deciding if I should turn it in or not. Lol! And I still might just pay off a few bills, before turning in $1.00 to the cops, just in case someone wants to claim that. Sike (maybe ?).

  • bella28498 .

    You’ll never be a lawyer, very unconvincing argument.....sound like some I’m white and I say so b.s

  • bella28498 .

    Damn right I have a point. Let the police do a bait sting on white kids it would be called entrapment! most of these sorry blacks on this post will be talking how wrong the police was for going that to the poor white kids.

  • bella28498 .

    So who does your daughter get the stealing gene from, you or her dad? Stealing when it’s not to survive show bad character.

  • Jamal Warner

    What are you even talking about? There is a hour long video of people following the police as they set this up. Go figure!

  • dontgetblocked

    Blame them badazz mini-criminals not the police!!! How is this entrapment? Is it entrapment when these baby thieves burst your car window and steal your shlit?

  • BingBangBoom

    Lol right

  • Malcom Flex

    I thought hood folks in Chiraq had such superior street smarts (dry chuckle) then they should have known that shit was too good to be true, entrapment is real . Their parent(s) failed to hip them to the game of life and let's keep it real some parents have low morals and don't question when their broke azz kid brings in goods the parent knows they can't afford.

    BTW today I was downtown in my city and saw a new, black SUV with all widows down and nobody around, of course, I didn't look to see if there were keys in the car but I immediately thought entrapment.

  • Malcom Flex

    Parent(s) gotta hip black kids to the game of life. If something is too good to be true that shitz is gonna F you up.

  • Malcom Flex

    Sorry your daughter got caught in the trap. It's the parent's responsibility to hip their child and lead by example if they choose not to listen thats on them. Props to you for being married and doing the right thing.

  • Malcom Flex

    You are right about that, low morals passed on to the child. I knew a girl who used to work at a department store in the shoe department and her mother would come in to get free (stolen) shoes. Low rent hustle gene. The girl later got caught stealing from the store, arrested, etc.

  • Malcom Flex

    Me too. I'd walk by smooth tell them it's a set up and keep stepping sometimes a hard head makes a soft behind.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Exactly! First they start off stealing Lil stuff then it goes up from their. I know exactly what you're saying

  • chris

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You need to chill lil mama

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You make good sense

  • Disgustd

    I agree, parents need to school their children on the fact that slavery was never truly abolished in the US (the 13th amendment was a sham and simply renamed slavery) and that the plantation is ALWAYS looking for new slaves to capture. All black people need to make their children watch The 13th by Ava DuVernay & Slavery by Another Name and especially young black boys. Problem Solved. Slave catchers will have to actually go after some REAL criminals like those who work in govt..oh, wait a minute, I forgot...that's not in their job description.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I agree..some kids needs to be taught that stealing is wrong...Kids these days are not stoopid,they know right from wrong. I believe it's the crowd they hang with that maybe influence their decision.

  • Disgustd

    They probably are behind the murders too...all in a day's work. Have you ever seen the doc Bastards of the Party? In that doc, one gang member said that the gestapo impounded his car and then later did a drive-by in it while it was still in their custody..obviously to provoke the rival gang to retaliate. This was during the LA gang truce..I absolutely believe this is what's happening in Chi-town.

  • chris

    Right and wrong are skewed in these kinds of areas unfortunately but being poor is no excuse for having no morals..

    Once upon a time black people used to understand the system is designed to make us fail so we must be twice as good.

  • chris

    They did it was called to catch a predator and it got canceled when some elected official got caught up and killed himself

    They need to bring that back

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    You do not set people up to fail. Those people siding with the cops Entrapment is nothing more than self hate & they don't even know it. Now, these stupid KIDS have a record and will be trapped in an ongoing cycle. Trust I work on a college campus & see this all the time. They will now not be able to go for certain jobs.
    Entrapment.

  • Lucy

    There is a video. When the police were confronted by a community activist the moved the truck.

  • Malcom Flex

    What we blacks can't admit that generational crushing poverty brings low morals. no father or college=less money in the house EBT Section 8 project lifestyle chances are you gonna have some thieving kids who got the penny ante hustle gene from their broke parent.

  • Malcom Flex

    We know this and black kids the ones who got entraped.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I wish they take that negative energy back to bossip and tmz.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Stop liking your own comments nut job.

  • Stillme Now

    It's not entrapment, it's enticement. Entrapment puts you in a situation where you have to do something of need. Enticement is not illegal, people have to learn if it's not yours, leave it alone. We're not animals, just because you put meat in front of us we will eat it.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I agree with you, and really this issue started at home. If we teach our young children (especially of color) to take responsibility for their OWN actions instead of blaming slavery, racism, etc., they will be more likely to pass this stupid test.

    Of course, most are going to blame white people for these kids stealing. IT'S NOT YOURS SO DON'T TOUCH IT. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO IT BECAUSE SOMEONE LEFT IT THERE. and so on

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Boy he must really hate bait car too.

  • gail fowler

    The point being is what, why was the sting done in the black neighborhood in the first place outside a basketball court. To make what point maybe a black kid parents may not be able to afford to pay for a pair of Nike shoes in which case they are going to steal them, up bringing or not. So did you park a Nike truck in a white neighborhood outside a Tennis court or wherever white kids play sports

    How can you trust cops after seeing something like this.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Young Black Men have got to learn to be more careful! They claim to be 'street smart' yet stay falling for the okee-doke! I remember when I was in high school some big, beefy Irishman was laying in the bus stop with 20 crisp 100 dollar bills spread in a fan just outside of his open coat. It's about 15 degrees outside and you laying on the concrete with your coat open and money hanging out of your pocket?!? I looked at him and all his money and just kept it moving. It smelled like a setup and my 17 year old self knew not to fall for it!

    Please..how many S&L's have gone under and the taxpayers have had to foot the bill? How many TRILLIONS have gone 'missing' from the Pentagon for YEARS with NO investigations? They can't even successfully pass an audit. How many Trillions and generations of wealth were probably absconded from the black community during the very predatory and PLANNED subprime loan mortgage ponzi scheme? white color crime and it's cost drain the taxpayers WAY more than any penny anty shi--- blacks are engaged in on the Southside of Chicago. Fact. And most poor people in the US are the WORKING poor..and black people have been poor and working since the damn cotton fields on the plantation..people kill me always trying to give false equivalencies between people pushed into crime to survive and those who are already doing well financially and just fu*** GREEDY and power-hungry. You'll even choose these types to be your 'leaders'..but gon' TRY to pontificate to blacks about morality. What a psychotic joke. When the CIA refrains from being the biggest illicit drug dealer in the world and the US government renounces it's admitted role as the biggest arms dealer in the world, then I'll be worried about what Pookie is doing to survive. Pookie's 'crimes' are like comparing a pickpocket to Jeffrey Dahmer or John Wayne Gacy's crimes.

  • Reenaface

    I want to agree with DL because I find him to be on it when it comes to black issues and he's funny as a comedian. But when I think about him poking fun at those girls on that Rutgers sports team being called nappy headed hoes years ago. I give him the ? Sometimes, I don't know how to take him.

  • Reenaface

    This is a messed up situation made even more so by the fact that black people haven't fully grasped that America is our captive, not our rest.

  • Disgustd

    It's unrelated because it disproves the lie that black/poor areas are the epicenter of THE most violent/pervasive crime on the planet. Uh, that undisputably is where ever monied, entitled white men reside. How many proxy wars and the next world war are they working on now and how many millions are dying or have been left homeless as a result? White people on ERRBODY crime is the most pervasive and consistently pernicious but UNSPOKEN on crime that exists. Supposed black on black crime is nothing but a distraction and red herring. Again, the stats on how much WHITE COLLAR crime costs taxpayers each year and how many of them end up locked up on the new plantation in comparison to mostly non-violent drug offenders who plea bargain and have to rely on public defenders who are all in cahoots and profiting off them--just like they did centuries ago in the old plantation system. This message ain't to convince Virtual COINTELPRO paid shills like you who don't even PRETEND to fit the demographic target group for this blog..we KNOW why you low-level state sponsored shills are here. My msgs are for those who DO fit the demo and are reading and listening and open to the truth.

  • Disgustd

    The irony of your words is that black people are stolen people ON stolen land STOLEN by the very same people pontificating to US about the ills of STEALING. What don't people get about the psychotic, hypocrtical irony of that? lol...

    jeeezuz. what a load of sht.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    All but the Native "Americans" (Indian) are on stolen land. The irony, rather the sad thing is that Black people KEEP looking for a reason to justify their own foolishness. So because HUNDREDS of years before you were born, Africans were brought over as stolen people it's ok to steal now? Miss me with that.

    The fact is we have to teach our children that they have at least one strike against them at birth (color) our young males have 2 (color, male). Teaching them to be smarter than the foolish traps others may or will set for them is much better and more proactive than excusing it. I did that with my son. He's 22 is building his own business/brand, never been arrested, knew how to act when "bothered" by police and does not steal. I stand by what I said. Be responsible for YOUR OWN actions instead of blaming others for bad choices and teach your children to do the same

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    When parents stop barking about how Blacks came to the US and start teaching them... smh

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Yeah, I think they have 30 or 90 days (I'll have to check) to claim it and if they don't, it's all yours.

  • Disgustd

    What I wrote is FACT, not excuses. And MOST black people are law-abiding and don't steal. And we don't need people who have stolen everything they have turning around and admonishing us for something that the overwhelming majority of us DON'T DO. Again you are preaching to the damn choir from a book that others don't follow while being held to standards that they don't even meet. The world isn't a horrible place b/c of US..look around you, who is poisoning the air, the land, the food & the water..black people? And who is working on WWIII as we speak? Again as a black person I get tired of hearing about personal responsibility from people who have been thieves and genocidal murderers from the time they crawled out of the rectum of Satan. And that's not blaming, that's just telling the TRUTH.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I AM Black. And everything positive starts with the individual. We can sit and reflect on what a specific group of people did and hold it as a crutch or we can do the right thing and work our way over under or around it. FACT

    I appreciate the banter as well as your position on things and truly respect it. We have differing views that are not necessarily wrong depending on perspective. But one thing, you referred to a race of God's creation as a whole as crawling out of the rectum of Satan; Does that honestly not show that you have the same level of racist aggression toward them? Can that REALLY help the issue? Just saying...
