6 companies who are large stakeholders in the prison industrial complex apart from disney i believe

And the people like Keke are the result of the brainwashing of those 6 companies.

My 96 (soon to be 97 w/God's will) grandmother always says, 'there is no black and white in the bible' but she sure as hell doesnt say that as a way to make it seem like racism doesnt exist and blacks can make it disappear which is what Keke implies in her msgs. Grandma makes the comment as in, yeah we are all the same and the whites that are racists in this world are committing a sin against humanity.

DAMAGE CONTROL:

Keke Palmer Reveals Plans To Visit Ferguson, Responds To Social Media Backlash

Huffington Post  | By Brennan Williams
Posted: Updated:
Print Article
KEKE PALMER

As she prepares for her historical role as the first African-American to play Cinderella on Broadway beginning Sept. 9, Keke Palmer has also expressed her thoughts on the outrage stemming from the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

Earlier this week, the 21-year-old actress-singer took to her Twitter and Instagram account posting a string of comments urging for unity and nonviolence during the outbreaks of national protests for Brown. And though Palmer’s inspirational messages were intended to uplift her followers, some slammed her thoughts as naïve.

“Being naïve is never anything to be ashamed of, because I believe me being naïve is what has allowed me to do all the things that I can because if I believe in and quote what’s realistic then I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing right now,” Palmer admitted Thursday during an interview with The Huffington Post. “I simply wouldn’t be ‘Cinderella’ on Broadway, I wouldn’t have ‘Just KeKe,’”

“I wouldn’t have done any of the things that I’ve done. So I think that’s a play on people’s ideas of what they can’t do and what they believe is possible. And for me, I believe everything is possible. That’s the way that I was raised, and from what I’ve been able to do I’ve seen that to be true that your reality is what you make it.”

The star also shared her thoughts on the Michael Brown incident and why she chose to speak up.

“As far as what’s going on with Mike Brown, I spoke up on that, because unproductive outrage has never gotten us anywhere,” she continued. “Even with MLK and everything that he did for black people...all he spoke about was unity, because throwing hate and being angry, and violence, that doesn’t give us peace and equality. That’s like having sex in order to get your virginity. It’s just the complete opposite thing to do.”

“I don’t have all the answers and there are no quick fixes for things like this. But uniting and coming together on one clear message and trying to get that message across is much better than us all being everywhere and fighting against one another and coming from all different sides. That’s never going to get us anywhere.”

After defending her thoughts against the hailstorm of criticism, Palmer also encouraged her followers on Instagram to “take it to the streets” and “off Twitter” if they really want to contribute to positive change. All of which has prompted the Illinois-native to visit Ferguson this weekend.

“I’m very excited to see what can be done and if I can really get involved, and how we can unite one another,” she said during the interview. “That’s what I always believe is the way to go. Uniting us all. Not just black people, but everybody that’s coming to talk the same message. It’s unfortunate when things like this happen, but hopefully it can wake people’s eyes up and let them know that we need to unite as a people.”

"No one person can do anything. So, going further into my statement of 'taking it to the streets,' if you feel strongly, organize things that can best execute your message. That's what I mean by that. Being angry and outraged freezes train of thought. We all have to take a breath outside of our pain and figure out a way to be heard. Everybody, anybody, can make a difference if they try."

I have never liked Keke. Once she straightened her hair to conform to her first *cough* failed tv show's white audience I knew it was all she wrote. She talks too much and more than one person has implied it. Even Wendy Williams had to pat her hand like a 3 year old and tell her to "hush". 

She's my age, as a black female, she's not afforded the luxury of naivety. Age is not an excuse for stupid.

She better watch what the phuck she says. Every opportunity that has came her way has been from black people that wanted her to succeed. 

Anger, frustration, and outrage is necessary and has ALWAYS been necessary to get change. MLK's method of non-violence was strategic...but they were still highly pissed off. You can be outraged and strategic at the same time. People like her that white-wash MLKs message and are jaded by a few coins irritate me.
