    That's what a lot of the "black community" does, especially their supposed spokesmen.
    Do you really think this is playing victim? Do you really think this is playing the race card? If you think this? Then you are not very aware of your surroundings here in the so called "Melting Pot"

    Yup, I can see why he's ostracized by his own people. Black culture is the same culture that states when a black person speaks intelligently, eloquently, and with clear inflection he's "talking white".

    For most white people I know, being called a "thug" or a "pimp" is derogatory. For most blacks I know, it's a moniker of respect.

    Speaks volumes, huh.
    Do you think any of that means anything to me? Sure it used to back in the day when Bill was on the right side. Now he is just an old man with no clue.
