Karen King

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta cast member Karen King was taken into custody last week on an outstanding warrant in Atlanta.

Law enforcement sources say the troubled reality star was in court for an identity fraud case when the county clerk discovered an outstanding warrant in King's name.

The warrant was issued for King's arrest for allegedly hiding a 2014 Maserati sports car to avoid repossession. It is a crime in Georgia to intentionally hide a car to avoid repossession.

According to TMZ a judge signed off on the arrest warrant back in October after King missed too many payments and the bank was unable to recover the vehicle.

JP Morgan Chase is one of only 2 banks in Georgia that issue loans or leases for Maserati vehicles.

Regardless of your credit worthiness, if you miss a payment or you're 40 days late on a Maserati payment, Chase bank will send out a repo man after midnight on the 40th day.

I've heard of cases where the bank agreed to accept a payment by a certain date, but the repo man grabbed the car the day before.

    "It is a crime in Georgia to intentionally hide a car to avoid repossession."

    I have a friend who hid his Mercedes for two years. Once he got his finances in order, he contacted the powers that be and negotiated a payment plan. As a result of their agreement, for the first time in years, he parked his car in his driveway.

    When he called me and told me what he had done, I told him that they were trying to trick him. While were discussing the matter, his car alarm went off. The repo man drove away with his car.

    A few weeks later, he had the nerve to ask me to cosign on a brand new car! ?

    Thanks for bringing this story to a full circle Auntie, because I was lost. No blog reported her hiding the car. I could not understand why she would be arrested, when they could simply repo for the vehicle.

  • Vegas1989

  • Guess Who

    This bish is the epitome of a crook azz scammer, lol.
    Wow...she so bald you can read her thoughts.

  • IamAllnatural

    She may have 2 plaits in the back?

  • hotntot95

    ??prolly

  • Renee26

    Well she's a known scammer soooooo..... she could have paid that car note with her check from the reality show dah fuh

  • Jennifer

    She looks better in this mugshot than she does in pounds of makeup and weave. She actually has nice skin. Should have gotten a nice LaCrosse like all the other mothers of grown folks!

  • Renee26

    You can't take a mugshot with a wig on...in my state they might make you take out your weave too

  • MookieFly

    Shoot perfect time cus I'm about to go on lunch. You want a frosty lemonade too? ??

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Exactly! Its not as cute to lay up on but at least aint nobody gon take it from you

  • Renee26

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    At least she would have had some money to visit the beauty shop or buy a nice wig.

  • Renee26

    Her 2 dusty sons....she supposedly a queen pin of some sorts...but that's just code for old school scam artist

  • IamAllnatural

    Yeah weave is definitely contraband every where. An inmate can do alot with a track of weave, they real crafty.

  • NicoleZee

    This is why banks should rethink the whole loan process in the first place. A luxury car is not a necessity. She could have just gotten a Toyota or Kia and been done with it, or better yet, TAKE MARTA, much cheaper if it goes where you need to go!!! I don't get these celebs and their horrible spending habits. Ridiculous and sad.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Exactly! I tried to tell him that after two years of skipped payments, they wanted the entire balance due or their car.

  • Rayne

    I ain't know WHO this was....lawd geezus

  • Pamela

    Was she a bad azz back in the day? She kinda looks like my dead aunt, who sold crack in her neighbourhood. Everybody loved her though including our pastor.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Or she could have gotten a 2017 Kia Soul lol.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Oooooooh, no! ?

  • Tammie Reed
  • IamAllnatural

    I beg to differ, she looks totally different & not in a good way!?

  • NicoleZee

    However, I learned that when you die and you want to be buried, you can keep all the fake shit in including dentures, breast implants, butt implants, weaves, etc. I asked a guy at the funeral home if they have to remove fake body parts, he said no. But, why do you need to go in the casket with all that shit in??? You're not going anywhere but in the ground to rot! But I do want to be buried in a sharp pair of six-inch heels, I love my hooker heels! He told me cool, that's fine :)!

  • Tammie Reed

    I saw her at a fashion show a few years ago arriving with a lap dog and an entourage, I was like who is that? She wore a dress with a train and they kept fixing it for photo opts. It was before she made her first appearance on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. They sat her front row like she was the first lady, I was like chile bye! Atlanta give the wrong folks too much shine here, I was done and fell out!

  • Tammie Reed
  • Carla

    She's looking like she's waiting for Craig to let her know if she can borrow his VCR...

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    She looks old and rough in that mug shot.

  • TeeTee

    Girl cut my tracks out in Dekalb and braided them in someone else hair.. shid I didn't care - I got commissary for it (these was many moons ago)

  • NicoleZee

    When you rely on all the fake shit, when it comes off, you look horrible. That's why it's important to take care of your hair and skin and body. Makeup should enhance your beauty, not turn you into a completely different person. And I don't know much about weaves, I just relax the hair growing from my scalp and keep it moving. Praying that my hair keeps growing and doesn't fall out again and that I don't have to ever color it. Pregnancy messes up your skin and your hair falls out. Glad that's over!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso
  • Pamela

    Lol. Are you saying it's yours forever and ever? Ain't nobody EVER gone snatch it away?

  • IntroSpective

    Karen has nice skin ?. But if she's a scammer, why didn't she scam her way into some shiny veneers??? ?

    Lmaooo yup and she couldve had some left over to invest in some sturdier wig installations

  • Anunnaki

    n. It is a crime in Georgia to intentionally hide a car to avoid repossession.

    And it is a crime for you to have paid fir this car and a bank send someone to steal it from u

    I always told my Sister, braid my hair nice if I lose hair while I am old. I told my Bestie keep my makeup tight if I am immobile. I don't know what to tell anyone to do for me if I get locked up. I gotta set that up. :(

  • Anunnaki

    Use vicks vapor rub helps hair grow

  • Renee26

    LMAO you silly for that one...nobody will see your feet...but yeah the rest of the body I would hope they would keep in tact....those will be the only items remaining in the casket 100 years from now.

  • Renee26

    Braid it together and choke the ish outta people

  • Peter Piper ATL

    You can't hide a car from repo in this State. Most credible banks will not employ this method of recovery but this is very common.

    Title loan borrowers can also end up in jail the very same way. Just ask Khia.

    And mama takes an ugly mug shot photo. But what's a crackhead doing driving a Maserati anyway? Now mind you, those things are the raggediest, cheapest, most overpriced pieces of junk on the planet. Wealthy people don't drive that crap. Only negroes who want to act like they got more money than they do drive a Maserati.

    Just like those dreadful Chrysler 300s that you see all over the 'hood. Chrysler hasn't made a reliable car since the 1970s.

    I think Cobb's jail makes women remove their wigs AND weaves these days when they go inside the facility, but I could be wrong. Hopefully, she wasn't walking the streets looking like that.

  • NicoleZee

    So what happens if the repo man can't find the car??? There has to be a warrant I thought for the car to be recovered if it's in your garage or on anyone else's property. I wouldn't want that job, some people get violent when you try to take their car and repo people have been injured when people go nuts like that. SMDH!

    Someone told me that marijuana works good for pain. I have pelvic/low back pain but I don't want to take anymore narcotics nor do I want to do recreational drugs either. I already take Morphine for migraines, it does nothing for the pelvic pain that I get from having endometriosis. I'm tired of surgery and tired of the pain! Geeeeesh!

  • NicoleZee

    I don't get that mentality. Why do people care what others think??? They really need to grow some balls and get a hobby! The f*ck I look like caring about someone's thoughts of me??? WTH???

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    yep!

  • NicoleZee

    I don't understand why some women won't just go to the dermatologist to get their hair growing and healthy. That way, you won't need the weaves and wigs. I've never seen a woman that looks good in a weave/wig because you can tell it's fake. The only chick that pulls it off is Beyoncé, but she has the money to do so. I wonder how much it costs to get your weave to look like human hair??? Interesting.

    Mary Jane really works.. I use it instead of other meds. Also, I have found that hanging from the door and stretching your pelvis ( i know it sounds crazy) and castor oils packs (when your not on my monthly) helps. I have endo too, along with most of the women in my family.

    This is why I don't do my makeup to the point I look like a completely different person. Makeup is supposed to enhance your beauty.

    I agree with you Nicole, I stop weaves, wigs and braids 6 years ago and I swear my hair is a lot healthier, fuller and has a shine that I didn't see before and no edge issues whatsoever. I look at these young girls going bald around the temple and ears and it's sad to even look at.

  • Yen Chantress

    I am glad that you are taking this position now. My mother, (in my profile pic) was a beautiful woman, she never saw her beauty on a regular basis. It was one day, when she was weeks from dying of cancer, that she passed a mirror. After seeing her image, she instantly became mortified! For she realized that her unacknowledged beauty had abandoned her. Imagine not noticing something so beautiful exists until after it is gone. Celebrate yourself!?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She probably had a wig on. Jails in Atlanta make you take wigs off and extensions out.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Actually, a lot of the shadier financial companies include, in the purchase contract, a clause that they can't be held liable for coming on to private property to repo a car. But they can't breach the peace in Georgia. That means if you confront them or they make a noticeable commotion that disturbs the peace, then the repo has to end right then.

    In Georgia, you can actually call the police during a repo. If the repo driver is still there, the repo is supposed to end at that moment.

    But you can't hide the car after a demand to turn it over. It can then turn into a court case.

    But usually, a warrant is issued only after a failure to appear on a Magistrate Court issued summons for the case.

    Make up, fake lashes, eye brow powder, concealer, wigs and weaves can change a person's look completely. That's why I don't call people "pretty" with a face filled with make up and a head filled with weave. Take all of that off and let's see how pretty you really are.

I'm going to the colorist when the gray starts :(.

  • NicoleZee

    People actually put themselves through all of that just to try to keep something they can't really afford???? Ridiculous! Just put me on the MARTA and I'm good. I'd rather deal with the loud idiots and panhandlers on the train than deal with the repo man or the courts. SMDH!

I'm just tired of dealing with this shit and tired of talking about my infertility. At this point, cut me open or dope me up, I don't care, I just want the pain to be over. And I don't want to take marijuana because I don't want to be a drug addict; might as well do coke or heroin for that matter. Silly.

  • Lisa daniels

    What the hell?

  • Lisa daniels

    Y'all make be buy some just to try this ish

  • Lisa daniels

    She probably missed the payments on her wig, too.

  • NicoleZee

    How??? I don't get it. I need to talk to a chemist. If people smoke weed for pain, why not do coke or heroin, which are much more powerful??? I have never done recreational drugs a day in my life, but I would snort coke before I smoke weed. Hate to say that, but if I had to choose, it wouldn't be weed.

    Someone told me years ago that cocaine is a pain reliever, so why the hell smoke weed when coke gives you a more powerful relief for the pain??? Guess I should ask a drug addict too. I don't get the weed thing. It's still a drug, so if you legalize it and make it acceptable to use for regular pain, then legalize everything else! Just the way I see it.

    I do yoga and I jog. It helps a little with the pain, but not much. Yoga is good for the mind and body. Someone up there had to be looking out for me all these years. Drug addiction runs in my family, and I have never touched any of that mess. So that is one reason why I would never smoke weed. It wouldn't be strong enough for me anyway. I like the good stuff; I prefer Morphine and Fentanyl for pain.

  • Lisa daniels

    Haha

  • Lisa daniels

    Them souls like Flintstone mobiles. I can't

  • NicoleZee

    So if you smoke weed, why not snort coke or shoot up heroin??? They're more powerful. No offense, I just don't get the weed movement. It smells anyway. So.....I guess people smoke weed because it's cheaper??? Now I get it. Coke is expensive from what I hear. Makes sense I guess if someone is drug addict on a budget. Sad.

    Thank you Boo

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I wish Black people would stop defining themselves by a car.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I know. Its just not worth is, especially when you can get reliable transportation that ain't flashy for under $1000 cash almost anywhere. You just have to look.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I wanted to say something so important to me: Black People, PLEASE stop making these car manufacturers even more flush with cash by spending your hard earned money on JUNK and BULLSHYT automobiles.

    Chrysler/Dodge does not make solid cars. They make disposable vehicles that start to literally fall apart soon after that joke of a warranty is up. Chargers, 300s--JUNK. Black people have single-handedly made those two models some of the highest resale-value retaining cars in the world--but how, and why?

    Because 300s and Chargers are sold new for more than they are worth, then resold for more than they are worth after they're used and the cycle continues, and it continues because Black consumers, by far, are the market most willing to pay a premium for those two raggedy ass models.

    Buy here pay here makes money off old cars with high miles and high interest. Used car dealers rarely expect a used car to be paid off; they expect to repo at some point and sell it for the same price, or close to it, that they sold it to you. Its a scam. Beware.

  • NicoleZee

    So they take out fake body parts just to burn you in the incinerator??? I guess all that plastic is extra flammable and would set the funeral home on fire! SMDH!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    One more thing...did y'all know that Cadillac once prohibited sales of its cars to Black people? Yes, its true.

    And buying a Chrysler is not even buying American anymore--Chryslers are owned by an Indian automotive company and has been for several years now.

    A car has NO liquid value. It depreciates and deteriorates. It isn't like property or real estate--it is a machine with parts that eventually fail. A car should serve one purpose for you, and that is to get you where you need to go. A car should not consume your wallet or purse's contents.

    Buy something reasonably priced and reliable with a good resale value. Keep that money in your pocket. Having a new Benz does not necessarily mean wealth; I know of stunt queens who drive S550s and A8s. Meanwhile, some of the wealthiest people in America drive Hondas--or Chevy trucks and Jeeps, which are less likely to stay in the shop.

    Negotiate a lower price. Make them earn every penny you have to spend.

    We as Black people are seen as just consumers for whatever product some unscrupulous seller is trying to unload: overpriced liquor and beer; hair weaves; overpriced cars; useless gadgets and phones and other mess that depletes your earnings and ends up breaking next week.

    Spending smart means saving money for those rainy days and we know those days come.

    Mental illness is probably the problem with all these phony people. That makes sense. Otherwise, why not just be honest about your situation and stop trying to impress people that don't give two shits about you. Sad. With all the obstacles life can put us through, you don't have time to care what people think. I'm just thankful at the end of the day that I'm not homeless and hungry. I don't care how I get somewhere or what I ride in, long as I get where I need to go safely, whether I'm driving, using Lyft, MARTA, whatever, I don't care!

  • NicoleZee

    I guess I'm just not into cars the way some people are. What is it with people and Benz's??? What is so great about these foreign cars anyway??? I don't get it. I dated this African guy years ago that asked me if he could he hide his Benz at my Mama's house so the repo man won't take it. I told him hell naw, just let them come and get it and get your sorry ass a Toyota or Ford or whatever is affordable!! Another dumb ass dude buying what he certainly cannot afford. Ridiculous!

  • Ryan

    I actually agree with you on this. Seen too many folks end up upside down on payments and they lose the car anyway. Thousands of dollars gone to waste on one car. And nothing to show for it.

    You know, everyone has a right to their opinion. Marijuana is one of those things that people judge, especially if they have never used it (even for medical reasons).

Her opinion changed once we researched mary jane and started giving him 1/2 brownie everyday.

    And I have never, and will never use other drugs.

  • Jason

    Caddies are nice well made luxury cars on par with the German luxury cars. There is nothing wrong with those that wish to drive a luxury car. Spending $85,000+ for a car is not an issue for those who earn well over six figures annually.
    It may become an issue if all you earn a year is $25,000 and have past financial debt that you need to satisfy, + take care of your kids and pay the rent.

    A scam? Everyone has an opinion.
    I personally would not purchase a Chrysler, not even a Fiat for that matter. If you drive your car everyday and put high miles on it without routine maintenance of course its going to break down after only a few years. Buying a used car with a limited warranty or no warranty at all is just asking for trouble.

    A lot of females wear wigs and weaves not because they lack natural hair, its because they simple refuse to do all that cutting, coloring, chemical/flat ironing/rolling to their hair which will lead to damage. If you want blonde highlights on your straighten hair on Monday but decide you want short punk rock purple hair on Friday and next week you want a soft curly brown look, the only way to go is wigs because if you were to do all that with your natural hair you will end up bald.

    So, if you have a fire extinguisher at your feet while at work and someone caught on fire you would not help? You would just call 9-11? Interesting. I wonder if you have a child and that child is at school and chocking at lunch and the teacher refused to help the child and the child died as a result of not getting any immediate help. You would most likely go off on the teacher and sue the school, especially if the teacher told you she wasn't trying to get her clothes messed up.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Yes. you could be right. Those blaxploitation films romanticized Cadillacs and Black consumers reacted. But Cadillac was very opposed to Blacks buying their products once upon a time.

    That's ironic as hell.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Cadillacs loo good and they tend to be luxurious with a lot of technology.

    The problem is, and has been for a long time, that Cadillac installs technology that has a tendency to fail prematurely. Sensors, computer components, ECMs, BCMs, touch screen navigation systems.

    And they have terrible resale value.

    If you get one, consider leasing it. That way you won't be trapped in it because in 5-7 years, it won't be worth much.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Cadillac had no concern for Black people. And throughout the 1980s, they reaffirmed that by selling cars that were extremely subpar--and a large number of them went to Black driveways and garages.

    The HT4100 is a legendarily miserable motor that GM put in Cadillacs. The Cimarron was a Chevy Cavalier with leather seats and a flawed digital dash.

    But the Cimarron was priced at $12,000, fully equipped--in 1982! A Cavalier at the time cost about $8000. That's a huge price difference for that era, and an indication of how Cadillac/GM preyed on consumers.

    Chrysler did the same thing with its New Yorker/Dodge Diplomat/K-Cars.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Thanks, I'd never seen that article.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Owning property is so important--especially for Black people.

    But car manufacturers have used very clever marketing strategies to make car ownership the paramount concern in our lives.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I'm so used to Indians owning every damn gas station and chicken house in the 'hood that I credited them with owning Chrysler too. It was a slip-up, I was thinking Italian and typed Indian.

    You missed my point. "Feeling good" shouldn't be the main reason you purchase a $100,000 car, or even a $10,000 car. Let's have some perspective. If the feeling good is the main motivator, then you're probably truing to keep up with the Joneses, and that's never a good idea to begin with anyway.

    You can feel just as good in a new inexpensive car as you would a car that costs 5 times that. I promise you, a new Bentley will get you to the same destination that a new Kia will. And they both have seats.

    Its about making smart financial decisions. You could save thousands of dollars by not trying to feel good in a new BMW and get a much less expensive model--and put that remaining money away in a savings account, tuck it away for your kids, do some home improvements, buy some real estate or just put it in a box that you keep your wig in. Who cares? The point is, Black people need to learn to save money, and spend well, and it starts with cars.

    Presumably, she missed her payments for the same reasons most people do: she either didn't have it, or she didn't want to spend it. So guess what? had she purchased a much cheaper vehicle, it may have been paid off by now, and she wouldn't have her ugly ass mugshot all over Sandra's blog.

    Black consumers are under no obligation to buy any product. I, personally, buy things on a need basis. I don't need to have a bunch of useless crap sitting in my house just to have a full house. That means more stuff to dust and keep clean, and I'd rather be out living than being a slave to stuff.

  • Lisa daniels

    Is she now?

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Yes. they did. And it was. And it still is despicable.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    But we've seen this so many times in our history. Black people wildly support produces and people that simply do not care about us.

    This is why supporting Black owned industry, particularly in Black areas is so important.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Cadillac has fell off the radar a little bit for a lot of Black people, especially here in Atlanta. They've been edged out by Mercedes, BMW and that hideous Maserati.

    Status symbols, perhaps, but all overpriced.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Sorry dear, but Cadillacs are not on par with similarly sized BMWs and Mercedes or Porsches. I'm assuming you meant Audi when you referred to German cars, because those are made by Volkswagen, and they are more in the range of what Cadillac offers.

    That said, yes, a Cadillac can compete with an Audi.

    Cadillac has come a long way, and that's a good thing. But German cars are cars that are designed to perform. Germany's Autobahn has no speed limit. German cars tend to be built as driver's cars that have fast acceleration, nimble cornering, and deliver consistent power--even those big heavy sedans.

    Be aware that Cadillac has taken cues from German cars in refining its own technology.

    Yet still, Cadillacs are still primarily touring cars. Big difference.

    And no car enthusiasts would choose a Caddy over a Benz or BMW, let's be real.

    But they are all overpriced, no matter where they come from.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Not a damn thing to show for it, but an empty driveway.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    That's a tough question. I think Lexus is a little overpriced, and it doesn't have the marquee value of a Benz or BMW, but they are Toyotas, and they are known to be reliable and have good resale value.

    If the idea is to not only buy a nice car, but make a wise investment in the process, and own something that will retain some value, I think Lexus is at the top of the list, for luxury brands.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Well, some cars are prone to mechanical failure more than others. We all know that. That's why Yugo doesn't make cars in America anymore.

    Cars today are more reliable than they were 30 years ago--that's a fact. But keep in mind that a car has thousands of individual parts. Some of these parts are designed by independent companies. Some of these parts are of lesser quality than other parts from other companies.

    When you have cars built with inferior parts, or complex and ineffective design, problems can occur.

    And I don't care what kind of warranty you have, nobody wants to be sitting up in a repair shop every week so spend wisely and do your research before you pend your money, is what i'm saying.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Thanks

  • Peter Piper ATL

  • Peter Piper ATL

    The point is, spending habits can get us into trouble. For Black people, it is especially true, because we tend to over-consume.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Thanks for the thoughtful and intuitive dialogue everybody. I enjoy you all so very much.

    To clarify for a few folks, I wasn't hating on Cadillac; I was sharing a part of history that is documented and easily verifiable. It bothers me that so many companies have built their entire conglomeration on the sweat and dollars of Black people and they act as if it doesn't matter. Cadillac isn't the only one. But they do stand out in my mind because that's a brand that has maintained a large amount of semblance in our community.

    Do I have an issue with anybody spending $120,000 on a new Benz, Caddy, Maserati or BMW? Not at all. Honey, have at it. But I'm thinking that if you cut that in half, and buy something with less marquee value or even a marquee used car, then you get to save $60,000.

    That's money you can put away or invest. There's nothing like financial security, and knowing you've got a few extra dollars in the bank for when you need it. And a $120,000 car will get you to the same place that a $12,000 car will. These days, they even share similar technology.

    We have a pack consumer mindset. We follow trends, and collectively so. But often these trends have no real value. Personally, I wish Black people would apply this pack mentality to the stock market, real estate, hair weave manufacturing industries, and more.

    I'm not telling anybody what not to buy, or what to buy. But what I am saying is, Black people, empower yourselves. Spend wisely. Consume sensibly. Save money. Invest. Think wisely before you open your wallet/purse.

  • NicoleZee

    Oh wow! Glad her child is doing better. But I'm just trying to understand the logic of people thinking marijuana is okay while other drugs are not. I'm just not understanding. If someone smokes weed, then why do they view doing other drugs as wrong??? I don't get why weed gets a pass, but if someone does coke or heroin or meth, they are harshly judged. Doing any kind of recreational drug is wrong, because it is still a drug! But thanks for your responses though.

    Question: If you are in pain, have you thought about seeing a doctor and getting them to prescribe a narcotic instead of using marijuana??? Although I've never tried marijuana, I would think that a narcotic would provide more pain relief.

  • Lisa daniels

    Oh. Never heard of her.

  • Jason

    Well now.

    Don't you think maybe you are generalizing Black people?
    Black people know about investing, stockmarkets, real estate etc...
    Get away from the stereotypes that Black people as a whole are financially challenged and are less educated about business matters.

    Black people no more over consume than any other racial group in American. What conglomerates other than the United States of America's government and the cotton and agriculture industries of the 19th century have made their wealth off of the sweat of Africans brought here to the USA????
    What other industries forced Africans (before granting them US citizenship) to work and not have constitutional rights?

  • Jason

    Goodii2shoes,

    Really? Its the White mans fault that a brotha has 8 babies mommies, no skills other than making babies with equally dumb females and can't or won't financial support the kids.

    Did the White man recently stop Blacks from getting an education or has he condemn all Black men to a life of just sitting on the coach playing PS4 and texting dumb skanky females 'dick' pixs all day??

    Wait, the White man conspire to get Black men to sell drugs and committ crimes all so Black men can feed all the kids they create out of wedlock?

    The White race has brainwashed Black females into becoming welfare queens and to defraud the government?

    The White man told you to not attend classes and skip school all so you can look dumb during job interviews when your education lacks those Whites whom completed school??

    I can go on and on....

    People need to grow the fuck up and take responsibility for their lives and stop blaming others for their life choices.
    Its no longer 1865 or 1960.

    A man of color became the president of one of the racists nations on earth and since Obama can rise above the so called racist oppression, certainly Black people can do the same as a whole.

  • Jason

    I stated that Caddies are luxury cars that are on par with German luxury cars. Yes, I know the difference between a luxury car and a high performance sports car. GM has the Corvette on par with those high end German sports cars. And not all BMWs and Mercedes-Benz's are created equally as you know. There is a huge difference between a $40,000 Benz and a $100,000+ Caddie and vice versa. They do have Caddies that are specifically geared for the extreme sports car enthusiast=made to order.

    Hell, even the Germans admitted in 1990 that Nissan's redesigned 300zx variant Twin Turbo was a force to be reckoned with. The 1990's 300zx murdered the equivalent Porsche in sales.

    Also, the German Autobahn has a high death and accident rate and this is why we have speed laws in America.

  • Jason

    Sarcasm here....

    Well, thank you for sharing this bit of information we already are already aware of...

    Yugos were the Smart Car of its day and were junk from the get go. In my lifetime I have only seen one Yugo in person and it was parked on the street in 1984, even little kids walking pass it were laughing at the quality of the car.

    Exactly

  • ??LordHell2TheNaw??

    Lmao! I know

  • Allihave2say

    I guess ignorance is bliss. Every moment there's an opportunity to share information, history and for others to learn. Let's be clear there has been much oppression of blacks for centuries. The element isn't gone or dead.
    Unfortunately for you, you are concerned with the wrong thing and missed the information as necessary and beneficial. Doesn't matter the race if the car is junk it's junk. And the qualitative point of the responsive comment was to teach blacks who've purchased those chargers and 300's in droves, to stop investing in crap that was designed and targeted toward their ethnicity. If you think marketers and advertisers don't target groups you are so wrong.

  • Jason

    Listen, Black people do pick up magazines such as Motor Trend and Road and Track and read the car reviews.

    I doubt very much that Fiat/ Chrysler spent millions designing and building the models 300 and the Charger specifically for Black people.
    What you are implying is that Chrysler knows it has two inferior cars and knowly are targeting Blacks to purchase the cars? Blacks again become victims of yet another White own corporation???

    Are you freaking insane or what?

    Do you have such low regards and no respect for Black people?? Do you think Black people are such fools that they would buy a car that has been manufactured with inferior parts and low safety standards all targeted towards the Black consumer???

    One of the most ridiculous conspiracy theories I have ever heard.....

    First off: The 300 and Dodge Charger are very capable and decent cars. I personally do not like Chrysler, however, if I were given one of their cars I would not turn it down.

    Black people are not the only people who love the two cars, in fact the Dodge Charger is considered a muscle car and it has been well received by those across all racial lines. What research have you personally done to conclude that the Chrysler 300 is junk? The 300 is on par with The Ford Taurus and The Ford Fusion. The 300 comes in many different variants from the base model to one that has a more powerful motor, stronger suspension and superior brakes. I believe its retail price is $70,000.

    Its a brand that people like and obviously enjoy. What other conspiracy theories that White own corporations have against Black people. There is nothing stopping Black people from forming a car manufacturer themselves and targeting their own people.

    the prison system? the marijuana industry that is becoming a legalized boon ... (this is just off the top of my head, Jason)...

  • Goodii2Shoes

    good morning, Jason. So before we continue: I'm college educated & excel beyond my peers in many ways not just interviews or education and by peers I mean people in the same age group (any race, color, socioeconomic status, or education/etc.). I will presume you used the word "you" as a generalization and not personal attack.

    & bc this blog is public (&you responded so in depth), I'll take the time to reply.

    DON'T confuse my earlier comment as my giving a pass to the PS4 playing, baby mama making, no respect for themselves/ family or their history type of people you described. Every race has degenerates.

    My point was that there are many people of color who are not allowed to reach their full potential without thugging/ going wayyyyy harder than their natural potential would require if they were not trying to apply their potential in a racist society.

    Obama was president but he didn't do much for the "Race", His mom is a white woman from Kansas & Father a black man from Kenya & he grew up in Hawaii---"He isn't black enough" was what the saying was during his campaign and looking back at his legacy, I agree. His tenure as president didn't do anything amazing for black people (IMO) or the US as the nation is still spiraling into unchecked chaos on many levels, in many sectors of the society & racism abounds.

    The struggle in my head is how do people in modern societies across the world convince themselves that America is a fair&just, equal opportunity nation for all?

    ...But that struggle is unimportant when I can go out and provide opportunities to people who deserve or direly need them while creating & implementing solutions for a society that propagates an idea that every citizen has a fair shot if given one.... I try to be on the end of giving out those fair shots because I have witnessed the attempts to block a citizen's fair shot.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    nope.lol.
    did the banks get penalized for the financial crisis that will take generations (if ever) to be corrected according to the U.S.' chief financial officials??
    Did wells fargo have to pay the consumers its' employees robbed with their account scam???

  • Goodii2Shoes

    on another note, ur comment got me thinking cali gangbanging & etc may be a form of "social security" or "community protection" like it was intended & i'd better go check that out bc things are not getting better in the US

  • Jason

    The Prison System?
    When has the prison systems illegally captured the black community and forced the entire race to live behind its walls without their human and civil rights??

    The marijuana industry?

    Now you have completely jumped out the window on that one. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Support Black colleges and universities by either attending one or donate.

  • Allihave2say

    You must mean what the original commenter is implying. I'm not the one.

  • teather

    Absolutely not. The car is the security in the loan. If they take the car, then you owe them no money.They wanna take the car and charge the money?!In Cali we have laws that protect the consumer. Now, it may change some day, but the law is that an auto loan is secured by the AUTO itself. If you take the car, you take the security and I no longer owe you for that loan.
    Word UP! How you think the Preso stayed wealthy all these years not paying ppl and stuff? Know the law but more importantly know the gray areas. That's where real entrepreneurs do business.

  • Jason

    that was over 30 years ago.
    The brand is awesome now. Stop acting like the brand was the only company that use to discriminate againsts Blacks.
    (if its actually true). There were no laws preventing Blacks from owning and driving a Caddy.

    Also, Caddies don't only appeal to Black people and GM did not only target its marketing towards Blacks. The reason the car was popular among Blacks in the 1960s and 1970s was because it was a very affordable luxury car of those eras. The 1980s and 1990s Caddies are a sad thing, too much over done technology and cost cutting.

    2017 Caddies are awesome!!!!!
    Have you even seen those high performance coupes that cost
    $110,000 from Caddy?

  • Jason

    Please.......how the fuck to you expect folks to travel without a car? Of course owning a car is important especially if you live in an area where public transportation is limited or does not exist.

  • Jason

    Hmmm....

    I agree with you on buying useless crap that justs sits around. I think I have used my
    $600 Kitchen Aid mixer just 3 times in two years (it looks good in my kitchen), however, I can afford the loss and it does make me feel good knowing its there when I need it.

    If you can afford it I see no reason why one shouldn't buy a $200,000 dollar Bentley. I am not into cars at all so my money is spent on other things.

    I purchased a $4000 refrigerator back in 2009 and before that my only knowledge of refrigerators were that of my mother's Kenmores that cost $300 back in the 1980s. I was shocked that a home ice box cost $4000. I purchased it because it looked good, its all around stainless steel, has several Independently electrically controlled compartments and it was one of the firsts to have a touch screen on it. Does it cool better than a plain ole white refrigerator that cost $600? Not really, but it looks good and it does more than a plain ole white refrigerator. I like it and its my money to spend. I may upgrade to a new Samsung with the 18 inch touch screen.

    I also have 300+ pairs of sneakers for all occasions.

    Why?

    Because I like wearing a different sneaker for running/jogging, working out, tennis, golfing, basketball etc...
    Gotta keep em rotated or they will smell. Some people will say all that money spent on 300 pairs of sneakers that could have been used on more important things...True

    It makes me feel good!!

  • Jason

    How many car manufacturer are owned by Blacks?

    Is there a car manufacturer industry in Black Africa that imports to America???

    How many Asian own car manufacturers are imported to America?

    How many German own car manufacturers are imported to America?

    How many of you shop at retailers that are owned and controlled by Whites???

    Macys, Target, Walmart, Sears, H&M, iKea, Amazon etc...

    There are no Black own cooperations.

    There are Black own businesses of course and usually most of them have some White sub control.

    Some will argue that entertainer Tyler Perry owns his own company?? Well, on the surface it may look that way, however, Tyler's investors are White, LionGate which distributes his products is a White owned Corporation, the theathers and networks that exhibit Tyler's products are White owned. Tyler's audience is now half Hispanic, even White people have been seen going to his movies.

    A Black owned company can not substain its revenue soley on Black people supporting it.

    If the product/service is good it doesn't matter which race group it originated from.

    Are you really going to stop buying a Lexus because the Japanese were horrible to the USA during 1941.

    Stop buying anything German due to Hilter's control over half of Europe during the war?

  • Jason

    All this conversation over some lame ass scallywag who can't afford or refuse to make her Maserati car payments??

    Atlanta is a Black circus. I am not trying to offend the fine folks of Atlanta but it seems a majority of Blacks there are pretentious Scallywags that crave attention. There is a video that has gone viral of two Black dudes fucking right in front of the Turnstyle at an Atlanta subway station. Ghetto Black people in and around Atlanta being rowdy when their EBT cards are rejected. Trash. Yes, Black people can be trashy just as equally as other racial groups. And no, I am not a White flunky or coon. I call it as I see it. Just because I am Black I am not suppose to have a negative opinion of other Blacks who deserve a negative opinion?

  • Faux Gibbler

    Cadillac's are over priced pieces of junk that rust like all other cars.

  • Faux Gibbler

    I read this blog because I like Sandra Rose.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    The comment was seeking info on what industries have been built of the backs of blacks... prisons & the now legal marijuana industries.

    If you can't see that, save yourself the reply.

    & Why would I attend a racist institution like an HBCU? no disrespect, but I like the liberal arts education I've received elsewhere

  • Jason

    LOL.
    The prisons are built on the back of Blacks?? Do you mean that Blacks keep the prisons system busy?

    Blacks certainly do keep the jails full. Not every Nigger in prison is innocent. I guess you are going to blame the White man for the crimes that non innocent Black people commit?

    And how is the weed industry built on the back of Blacks??

    How?

    Do you mean Blacks smoke a lot of weed or do you mean that Blacks are forced out into marijuana fields and must pick the weed leaves for Massa??

    This is 2017 y'all niggers need to stop blaming Massa for y'all problems.

    I guess Massa told that dumb bitch to not pay her car payment?
