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 Americas 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.

Let’s see: Harry Belafonte......Harry Belafonte......oh yeah, now I remember hearing about him. Didn’t he have a career in show business about 40 or 50 years ago?
“....Americans who agitate for gun rights are ignoring the black river of blood that washes the streets of our nation.
Does Harry really think that taking guns away from White law-abiding citizens will stop the river of blood washing among “Holder’s People”?
Hey Harry, when daylight came you should have gone home and stayed there.
Well if the blacks would just stop stealing guns from white households there wouldn’t be the black gun problem. (I can be just as snarky as he can - legally)
LIAR...Conservatives talk all the time about this...AND have solutions...but the racists aren't interested in solutions.
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...
Many bananas short of a boatload.
So, his unstated point is that blacks are not responsible enough to own firearms without committing crimes, unlike the majority of their white counterparts? Who is the real racist Harry?
“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 MSNBCs Al Sharpton regarding how deal with those who stand in the way of Obamas second-term goals.””
Proof that Belafonte makes a better case for gun ownership than anyone here.
Harry Belafonte just another Black Ku Klux Klan racist. I am so sick of these people and their White Guilt Liberal apologists. The black community needs to start taking responsibility
Daylight come and me brain not home.
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?
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.
Awww....Harry’s a victim.
Senility come, lock his ass in a home...
