His tweets about woody when woody was given a tribute at the oscars , his mom Mia is pretty bad azz too. I'm a super fan, so I believe he was just bringing more attention to what has happened. He's very outspoken.

im a little tired of white people with black kids just warning them about the "dangers" or "cons" of having brown skin and living on planet earth as if they cant do anything to change how society perceives us.
You are white just like the ppl who oppress us everyday. Take a fcking stand against the ppl who are doing this.

Its disgusting and disgraceful to me. A black parent who could do more than just warn their child about the way of the world most certainly would.


nah  i didnt read the article, just skimmed a lil bit

Is this really how we're going to handle this cop killer phenomenon though? By collectively warning black kids to look a certain way, dress a certain way, you can't do this or that. You have black skin so they're going to think you're dangerous. FOH.

How about handling it at the source? I know we have a long way to go before the perception of black Americans are changed, but blaming the victim isn't the way to go about it.

Reminiscent of telling rape victims to dress a certain way or be quick and as unfriendly as possible to avoid being raped. 

The victim needs to work harder, the offenders are allowed to continue to offend.

I'll probably be crucified for saying this....BUT....... It's sad but true that we have to explain to our children that they should dress a certain way, speak a certain way, not hang out on the street corners, if confronted or stopped by law enforcement just keep quiet, listen and wait until your parent arrives.  Why?? Because we live in a country where "justice" is unjust for those of color.  Why?? Because we live in the times where stereotypes are heightened by prejudice.  Why??? Because RACISM still and will ALWAYS EXIST!   What happened to that young boy is sad and they should hang that Klansmen who wears a uniform and has a license to kill. JMO

The first page.... i died



Anyhow, I hate that his entire point was to validate the existence of the fears that Black mothers have regarding the lives of their sons. I understand his intention was to help but White people stay playing victim and beating around the bush on this topic

WE KNOW BLACK MOTHERS FEAR FOR THE LIVES OF THEIR BLACK SONS, NO sh*t SHERLOCK

How bout we get down to the nity-gritty of this topic. White irrational fear and paranoia is given a priority over Black life routinely and historically.

Ever since the Haitian Revolution, Whites have been paranoid that Black people would take their necks. It's been on-going fear ever since and the guilty subconscious of Whites allows the fear to monger but it's their ego and superiority complex that prevents them from honestly addressing it
