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

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’m sick of racist blacks denigrating me. I see all men as equal at birth. After that it’s self-determination for all,... and from what I see of black ‘society’ they are determined to whine and complain and malinger for eternity. I don’t know of a single caucasian in Chicago who has purposely chosen to murder a black in that ‘black river of blood’. I do, however, see hundreds of blacks killing other blacks in a climate of total mayhem in Chicago. Maybe Harry should take a walk on the South Side where I grew up in a nice diverse neighborhood of German and Polish immigrants. 8715 Essex. Today it’s a black hell-hole where your life isn’t worth a nickel. POS commie!

Hey Harry! Just how stupid are you, exactly??? Your liberal friends have been for 40+ years pushing abortion in this country, which has resulted in huge numbers of deaths of innocent children within the Black community, as well as the rest of the U.S. The number of deaths from gun violence, perpetrated by YOUR people, not mine, pales in comparison to the numbers of dead piled up though this barbaric practice. So, Harry, on this Valentine’s Day, allow me to reach out with some tender love, and say to you, please STFU!

Senile old man. If he wants to help “his people”, shouldn’t he be saying blacks shouldn’t be allowed to own guns?

Harry, as dozens of posters on this thread have pointed out, your argument is built on a weak foundation--like the house you sang about in Hosanna.

Blacks, always the victims of everything so they can’t do nuttin’ without white man’s money...even when they victimize themselves.

The statistics are also overwhelming, Harry; the reason blacks are "the most hunted" is that other blacks are hunting them. When they are caught they are placed in prisons.

So... which one do you want: Fewer incarcerated blacks? or fewer "hunted" blacks?

Tell you what, Harry. We’ll pass a law making it illegal to shoot innocent black people. Do it and you go straight to jail.
Hmmm...

Who (what color) pulls the trigger to create this “river of blood.” Belafonte’s brain has turned to banana mush. Right, Mr. Talley man?

Harry’s been a racist for ages. But no so much that he turned down the legions of white women who threw themselves at him in the 1960s.

I hate to say it but I actually laughed at the “river of blood” comment.

It’s whitey’s fault?

He must be losing it.

***the “Ship A Disgruntled Minority Back” fund.***

Back in the 1830s New England, Blacks were rioting because do gooders wanted to send them back to Africa. The free blacks considered themselves AMERICANS and not Africans and were born here so did not want to go.

I think he means that blacks can not handle freedom responsibly, so whitey has to surrender freedom so blacks can survive as slaves to Belafonte’s commie state.

He’s a raaaacis! Where I grew up, blacks struggled for whitey’s freedom, not Belafornte’s slavery.

Dude, get your "Hey Oh" thing happening in Cuba. Too bad you are so stupid as to not appreciate what this great Country has done for you and your lame music. You're a one hit wonder who has NO clue what made that work as you live off the residuals.

Go F yourself, you commie totalitarian loving dipsh#t. And yes, I know what a communist is from growing up in the "60's. I saw it all at the naive age of 17, I knew it wouldn't work even then. Not one commune lasted for more than a few years. They were all defunct by around 1970.

Here's a clue why, which you'll never understand:
It is entirely against human nature for those to strive for the betterment of themselves and even society, while those who know they will reap the same rewards and produce less. It simply has not and never will work due to human characteristics who prefer to enjoy fruits of their labor. I despise communists...and you are a communist.

BTW, how did communism work out for those under the Stalin, Mao, Castro, Chavez regimes, et al, not to mention other central government socialist nations like Rwanda and such? Go away you POS. Go join your them if you are so dedicated. Of course, you won't. You're just one more hypocritical communist who will continue to suck off the the good will of the USA. I despise you.

"... when he claimed “white Americans” who agitate for gun rights are ignoring the black “river of blood that washes the streets of our nation.”"

Well then, hold your white leadership accountable. Too much effort? Your white socialist politicians that you vote for time and again have made it so. Us so-called "racists" whites are now about protecting our own and why so many are buying weapons. We're done with you stupid racist accusations and the threat of black gangsters invading our homes. I read every day about the murders of black on black.

So yes, it's partially the fault of white liberal/socialists politicians for perpetuating your eternal victimhood, but mostly because your politicians just don't care, yet you keep voting for them because why?...they promise you stuff?

Harry, ever wonder why so many black Mother's wind up raising their children without a father and on welfare? That is not due to some conspiracy racist white cause. Tell me exactly how whites cause that? Tell me why so many black men leave their women once they get pregnant. Tell me. I dare you to explain that.

blacks are way over represented in the NFL and NBA and other sports....that should certainly be changed...and they are over represented in the govt and the military....we can change that....and they are over represented in the criminal world, the world of drops outs, and the world of kids born out of wedlock...

A large number of blacks live in urban areas where gun use is illegal.

Harry’s making this up.

Ummmm, maybe blacks should start fallowing the law and quit glorifying criminals. As a percent of population blacks also have the highest number of :

school dropouts

AIDS infection

unwed mothers
