Belafonte blasts 'white America' for black gun crimes!
WorldNetDaily ^ | Feb 14, 2013 | Michael Thompson

Posted on 02/14/2013 1:42:21 PM PST by wesagain

WASHINGTON – Harry Belafonte, entertainer, long-time left-wing activist and admirer of Third World dictators, inserted himself into the national debate on gun control when he claimed “white Americans” who agitate for gun rights are ignoring the black “river of blood that washes the streets of our nation.”

The actor was on hand to be honored at the 2013 NAACP Image Awards when he asserted in his acceptance speech that the “group most devastated by America’s obsession with the gun is African Americans.”

“Although making comparisons can be dangerous, there are times when they must be noted,” he said. ‘America has the largest prison population in the world. And of the over 2 million men, women and children who make up the incarcerated, the overwhelming majority is black. We are the most unemployed, the most caught in the unjust systems of justice, and in the gun game, we are the most hunted.”

Belafonte continued: “The river of blood that washes the streets of our nation flows mostly from the bodies of our black children. Yet, as the great debate emerges on the question of the gun, white America discusses the constitutional issue of ownership, while no one speaks of the consequences of our racial carnage.”

Coverage of the NAACP Image Awards highlighted “Django Unchained” actor Jaime Foxx’s controversial........

I was wondering if anyone would connect the dots on this....so the next step is....pass a law that says Blacks cannot own a gun...that should be the logical conclusion from Harry

We hear from the self-appointed representative of a small and shrinking minority group - whose ire even their traditional Democrat Party patrons are no longer concerned with.

Maybe if you play up your last name - "Belafonte" sounds Hispanic enough to get somebody's attention in DC. :)

The very essence of black psychology is resentment. Resentment implies “others” are responsible for one’s inadequacies. Guess who the “others” are?

Belafonte is a Communist, who is cynically using the cover of racism to advance his Communist agenda.

Two points I like to make, the first is slaves do not own guns.

Second point is slave masters have a responsibilities for the actions of their slaves. If the slaves have guns it is the responsibility of the slave owners to take the guns away. Slaves only have two thirds of the constitutional rights of non-slaves, so forget about their constitutional rights.

I am with you Belafonte 100%

The NAACP, like CAIR and the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) are seditious outfits. I look forward to the day when a Conservative with real courage and an unabashed love for America will prosecute these vile outfits to the fullest extent of the law.

I know whereof I speak when it comes to NAACP since I was once a member. Back in the early 1960's when I was a naive young college student from up north going to school in Dixie, I foolishly believed then that the NAACP was worthwhile.

Wisdom came slowly to me but eventually I saw the light and transferred to a Conservative Christian college. I then came to realize that the NAACP was a fatally-flawed outfit, steeped in marxism and communist group-think. Just look at how and founded this anti-American organization. Since its emergence from the Niagara Movement in the early 20th Century, its leadership and membership have been fifth columnists.

Having been a card-carrying member of that organization and having attended meetings, I was in the belly of the beast. Based upon my experience, the NAACP was then and remains today, at best, a fraud. More realistically, it's a racist, subversive organization. I regret now that they got a penny of my money. But I sure learned a lot firsthand of just how wicked was and is the NAACP.

I love how Belafonte portrays the predator as the prey. Erase all the gun-related crime data and guess which ethnic group is (still) the most violent? Yup.

Wrong, Harry. Just about everyone of any importance in the news media and government have spoken of it, ad nauseum. Numerous laws are on the books to deal with it, to no avail - the carnage continues. The problem, you pompous d!p$#!t, is cultural rot.

You’ve got a point.
He doesn’t seem to have a problem with prohibiting people from owning guns,
and the overwhelming majority of gun deaths of black “children” are due to other blacks,

so, if eliminating the gun is the solution,
then just make it illegal for those doing the shooting
to own the guns.

No. We're very much aware of it, which is why we want to be prepared.

So...what he’s saying is that whites must have our 2A rights stripped, because blacks can’t help themselves from breaking the law with drive-by shootings, etc? Well, if that’s the way it works-blacks must have their right to have sex stripped away, as blacks commit the majority of interracial rape, something like 115-0. The rate of white-on-black rape is so low as to be statictically negligible, and there are NO instances of whites raping elderly black women. I will NOT have my 2A rights infringed because too many blacks won’t stop killing indiscriminately and ignoring exisitng gun laws (of which there are already too many). How are whites to blame in places like Chicago whe guns are practically completely outlawed, yet the black crime rate, especially that of gun crime, are through the roof How are whites to blame for that, when whites are held to the law, but blacks commit gun crime as if no laws exist?

Black and Red: A Journey Through Communism in the Black Community

Now FRiend, that's the unvarnished truth that ought to be at the center of "Black History Month" instead of the platitudes that the liberals shove down the throats of schoolchildren. It's a must read and it parallels precisely what I found during that foolish, rebellious period of my youth when I was dues-paying member of the NAACP...truly black, white and RED all over.

He careful omits to say who does all the “hunting”. Hasn’t he heard that it’s against the law-for whites-to own most guns in the places where black gn violence-by blacks, upon mostly blacks but also some non-blacks-is the highest? Guess that wouldn’t fit his “evil whitey” narrative.

Does Harry really think that taking guns away from White law-abiding citizens will stop the river of blood washing among “Holder’s People”?

Oh, Harry, we been talking about the consequences of your racial carnage for a long time, you just haven't been listening.

We've been talking about it for years, and we've just gotten called "racist" for it. Personally, I've given up on you and your people.

Perhaps you should address your comments to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, they don't seems to care how many blacks kill other blacks. If the killer isn't a white guy and the victim black, it just doesn't matter to them, admit it.

Now, come on Mr. Tally Man man, tally me banana, daylight come and, hey, you know the rest by heart, it was your only hit, after all...

“Belafonte is no stranger to controversy, recently advocating that critics of President Obama should be thrown in jail............”The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a Third World dictator and just put all of these guys in jail,” he said to MSNBC’s Al Sharpton regarding how deal with those who stand in the way of Obama’s second-term goals.””

Proof that Belafonte makes a better case for gun ownership than anyone here.
