    Sharptons latest act was surely a factor. This is big, we should be concerned. This is a becoming a battle that is intra-racial, age, social class, gender, artistic and constitutional. One old white guy has perpetuated all this dissention and division between us minorities. Yep, white people rule the world and we are rooks and pawns.

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    that chicks last name is Lipshitz … lmfao
    sounds like a person they made up, this meeting was neva gonna happen. They only scheduled it to not look like hipocrits after the Imus situation.

    The next meeting is gonna be scheduled by Pamela Lipshitz assistant, Buncha Dumfux

    Nah MEO, I have no doubt its poppin off, its alot of money involved in this.

  • WHO CARES

    Yeah Russell. Cancel the so called Summit. Go back to YOUR master and learn how to promote self hate to YOUR people. SELLOUT! ‘ The Man ‘ tells you to tell your rappers to say N*gga x amount of time and they do. You call beautiful Black women Ho’s and B*tches, but you contradict yourselves by talking about self pride, impowerment, and self esteem. THE DEVIL IS A LIAR.
