Rapper Chuck D. On CNN: ‘Since
Reagan And Bush, There’s Been
Nothing But Guns And Drugs In
The Black Community’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/26/2013 12:49:46 PM

Hip hop artist Chuck D., famous for his work with the group Public Enemy, appeared on CNN with Carol Costello to discuss the impact that the slaying of Trayvon Martin had on the nation one year later. Chuck D. told Costello, that when he was growing up, there were no guns in the black community. However, after 1980 and the rise of the Ronald Reagan/George Bush-era, he says that “there’s been nothing but guns and drugs in the black community.” Costello asked Chuck D. for his thoughts on the killing of Martin.

Comments:
Oh sigh. And the filthy, misogynistic, gangsta lyrics glorifying murder, rape and crime had no effect on the black youths in this country. CNN sure has improved since Jeff Zucker has arrived. s/o

Stooping to quote some faceless black huckster most of us have never heard of? Who most likely advocates violence and hatred of whitey in each and every ´song´ he ´sings´?

So a lack of personal responsibility and accountability have nothing to do with the increases in crime and drugs. That answers my question. I didn´t know that it was all Reagan´s fault. Bush I understood, but Reagan? Geesh! /s

I know exactly where Chuck D grew up. I grew up in the town right next to his (North Merrick). I know the area very well. I don´t recall Ronald Reagan or either George Bush ever being there, nevermind handing out guns and drugs.

However, I do recall that Roosevelt (where he´s from) was considered to be a dangerous place for law abiding folks to be well before Ronald Reagan was ever elected president, and definitely before (if Chuck D is to be believed) Reagan would sneak out of the White House, take the Metroliner to Penn Station, jump on an LIRR train to Freeport and stroll around at night handing out pistols and Crack cocaine like Santa Claus.

And oh yeah - did the guns and violence stop during Clinton´s terms? And then pick up where it left off after Reagan?

And which Bush?

Forget it, I don´t really care what a two-bit no-name Obama-supporting fool has to say.

And a huge percentage of the "Black Community" has, enthusiastically and without the slightest hint of self-restraint, fully embraced both guns and drugs.

Also, nothing but degenerate and violent "Hip Hop" as well.

He may be right, but not for the reason he thinks. The ´Great Society,´ which subsidized out of wedlock births and fatherless homes, had its first generation come of age during the 1980s. The guns and drugs coincided with Reagan/Bush I, but Chick D. needs to dig a little deeper.

You ask yourself, both about King Hussein Obama and this fool, you ask yourself, is he that stoopid? Or is he just a compulsive liar?

Stupid or liar?

Call me a racist. I dont care. Too many APIA´s (African People in America) for me. They hate whitey and they hate my beloved America!!! Look at all the trouble they cause, all the stoopid things they say and do, all the murders and violence and billions of dollars in wasted government aid.If the "good" ones wont speak out against them, like the silent Muslims wont speak out against terrorism, then doesnt that make THEM the real racists? The real whitey-haters? I´ve got an answer to solve it all but again, you´d call me a racist.

The word "rap" is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. So many stoopid people, even dumbass young white idiots, think that it is "music", when it really isnt music at all, is a lot of angry yelling, posturing, posing, and suggesting much violence, mostly against white guys like ME. I HATE it! This stoopid fool doesnt hate Reagan and Bush as much as I hate HIM. If Civil war 2 ever breaks out, look out man!

It started with Kennedy and Johnson. I grew up in Oakland Calif. in the 50´s and 60´s.

Just like #18 said, people who lived in a nice neighborhood, were forced to move because of the wave of lawlessness that took over. Retired people were attacked in their homes so often the Tribune wouldn´t even report it. If a crime was reported on they wouldn´t print the description of the prep.

This all was happening when the Black Panthers were giving out coloring books to the kiddies, showing the police as pigs, and attacking black people. They would call in a crime in progress somewhere in the Oakland hills, and then when the police helicopter would fly over, they would start shooting at the helicopter. Now my old neighborhood is called "the killing zone". Nothing new here.

This is character is actually on to something - but it is not what he thinks. For not too many years before Reagan and Bush, foul mouthed, obscene "artists" like him would have been arrested and charged with public indecency. And the producers and distributors of their trash would have met the same fate. It was simply unthinkable to permit such toxic, antisocial garbage free access to the public space and the minds of children.

But thanks to the Left´s fearless defense of free speech -unfortunately restricted to pornography, bad language, public obscenity, burning American flags and mocking Christianity- the longstanding legal barriers against the values and language of the Chuck D.´s of the nation were abolished. The rest is history.

Guys like Chuck D. are dim bulbs who cleaned up by poisoning and degrading the culture, especially that of the most vulnerable, at-risk children and neighborhoods. They are not the only ones to cash in on this depravity. A self-respecting society would never have allowed them to get away with what they have done. But now, adding insult to injury, Chuck D. -a real piece of work, someone for America and the human race to be proud of- blames Republicans for the consequences of his dirty, nasty, antisocial work.

Way to go, Chuck.

Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/27/2014 10:28:36 PM     Post Reply
First lady Michelle Obama unveiled a proposed new nutrition label Thursday, claiming the labels would make it easier for families to tell whether food is healthy. Because math is hard, or something. If your “nanny-state” radar is going off, it should. The new label really doesn’t appear to be much different from the old one. The “servings per container” font is larger and bolder, the “calories” section is much larger and bolder and the “percent daily value” column was moved to the left side (have to spend that tax money on something). The first lady said the serving size for many foods would be

The White House on Thursday said that President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, discussed immigration reform during their recent meeting but declined to say if the leaders had made any progress on long-delayed legislation. “I can certainly confirm that immigration was one of the topics they discussed,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. Obama and Boehner met in the Oval Office on Tuesday for an hourlong meeting. Carney, though, refused to characterize the tone of their discussion on immigration, saying only that “there is broad agreement that this is an issue that needs to be addressed.” “We´ve seen that in

The phenomenon of global warming has been used to explain many things, but now Mother Jones is quoting a study saying it might cause more rapes of women. Matthew Ranson, an economist, avers that there is a historical connection between warmer temperatures and increased crime. He said, "Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime. We think that is likely to continue in the future." Ranson utilized the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s projections of the effects of global warming in the U.S. to estimate that between 2010 and 2099, warmer temperatures will "cause" an

Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) are asking President Obama to designate $10 million for "gun violence research." According to The Queens Gazette, Maloney "joined with gun violence victims, advocates, and union leaders" to request the money on February 22. She said, "Gun violence costs our country an estimated $174 billion every year," adding that "the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a research plan in place. Now they need the funding to move forward." Maloney also joined Markey in sending a more formal request letter to President Obama. On February 4 Breitbart News reported that gun control proponents

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took off the gloves in his battle with education reformers, rescinding an agreement for the city to share space with several public charter schools. The move undercuts educators, parents and some 700 students at four schools, including Harlem Success 4, one of the public charter school movement’s top success stories, and two set to open in the fall. While agreements at those schools were rescinded, expansion of a fourth school was also blocked. The schools were to operate rent-free in city-owned facilities under deals backed by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an ardent supporter of

A federal judge in Kentucky took a final step Thursday forcing the state to begin recognizing same-sex marriages performed outside the state. U.S. District Judge John Heyburn was following through on his ruling earlier this month that found a portion of the state´s constitution, which bans the recognition of gay marriage, violates the U.S. Constitution. On Thursday, the judge wrote the amendment was unlawful and "void and unenforceable." The order came shortly after the Kentucky attorney general requested the ruling be delayed for 90 days to give defendants time to appeal and the state time to determine the best way to implement the

The man who shot and killed Trayvon, George Zimmerman, was found not guilty of murder in a Florida trial last year. The prosecution contended that Mr. Zimmerman singled out Trayvon because of

He also cautioned young minority men not to repeat his own youthful mistakes in an unforgiving world. The president kicked off his "My Brother´s Keeper" initiative from the White House East Room, appearing on stage with teenagers involved in the Becoming a Man program for at-risk boys in his hometown of Chicago. The aim is to "start a different cycle," Obama said. "If we help these wonderful young men become better husbands and fathers and

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
