Carolla rips MSNBC 'p---y a--wipe' Thomas Roberts for 'white shame' comments (Warning: Language)
Daily Caller ^ | July 17, 2013 | Jeff Poor

On his Wednesday podcast, comedian Adam Carolla dissected the reactions to last Saturday’s “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. Some of the media reaction that followed suggested the justice system had failed Trayvon Martin, the black 19-year-old shot by Zimmerman in February 2012.

Carolla, author of “Not Taco Bell Material,” reacted to those remarks, saying that in some ways skin color and other physical attributes are something that will have to be overcome.

“I’m willing to admit there’s a certain amount of racism,” Carolla said. “It’s not nearly — it’s not nearly what the news builds it up to be. But let’s just say there is, and it is. It seems to be here to stay so about the only thing we can do is bust our ass, keep our families intact, study hard and work a little harder than the next guy.

Language is a little rough, but he says what a lot of people won't say -- how certain stereotypes in the black community are a result of reality: crime stats, prison population, etc.

And the jab at MSNBC is sort of funny.

Trayvon was 19? I thought he was 17 year old child

According to the pictures of the MSM, Saint Skittles was 12 or so.

CAROLLA: "Why don’t we talk about young black males who perpetrate a disproportionate amount of violent crime? So they create a vastly disproportionate amount of crime if you’re in this age and you’re of this gender. It’s not walking while black. It’s walking while black male, young black male. That’s the group that commits the crimes, not all but a disproportionate amount of crime, which then scares other folks into thinking that guy may be the other guy. And then people go, ‘Well you don’t know that guy.’ That’s the problem. We don’t know that guy. We know he’s the black male — a young black male who’s in a group that commits a disproportionate amount of crime and that has freaked everyone out. That’s where it comes from.”

Adam, didn't you get the memo that statistics, logic, and honesty have no place in a discussion about race?

Besides, Adam, you're white. Your opinion regarding race matters means nothing because you are inherently racist. Get used to it.

“...Hear him explain what kind of society we’ve crafted in 2013.”

If your culture is vomit (and popular culture IS) then what kind of people do you think it will produce?

Just look at the TV, magazines, movies, commercial advertisements, facebook garbage, etc.

Is that wholesome?

He has a show here in L.A. at the Wiltern in August. Like I told people before, I know people who worked on the Man Show and it wasn’t Kimmel who was the brains behind the show but it was Carolla. The crew didn’t like him much though as he knows how to argue his point, and you just need to ignore the F zingers’.

Adam Carolla has ventured off the plantation.

Look for his show to be canceled in 5, 4, 3 ......

Have you read his book? It is pretty funny in parts but basically he had a very poor upbringing - I mean dirt poor but pulled himself up and made a career for himself -

I have bought two of his books. Funny reading with a right-on attitude.
