ESPN and Hank Williams Jr. have officially parted ways after the right-wing singer compared President Obama to Hitler. In a statement, Williams said the network stepped on his First Amendment rights, apparently confusing the right to free speech with the right to an ESPN contract.
Turn out the lights, the party’s over.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOES NOT MEAN FREEDOM FROM CRITICISM.
I don’t think I’ve ever met a racist who understood what “freedom of speech” means.
Saw his not-so apology on tv…..LOL’ing forever at his ‘well they were mean to me so I’m taking my ball and going home’ thing

Bootstraps and racism.
That’s a sucky analogy. I guess it’s supporting affirmative action? Look, the people still riding the success their ancestors had during the slavery period (they’re ever thinning) would have an advantage whether we had affirmative action or not. Affirmative action targets the borderline applicants to colleges and jobs…and favors minorities. Those with the unfair step aren’t borderline. The applicants are on equal ground and do have equal opportunity. Yet the minority gets preference. Still reverse discrimination.
Uhhhhhhhh… white people are riding on the privilege left over from slavery and extreme racism.
Affirmative action seeks to even out the playing field: because of racist and impacts still felt from racist laws, racial minorities are often in lower socioeconomic groups than white people. Being in a lower socioeconomic group often means living in worse neighborhoods and going to worse schools. Racial inequalities are not over, and denying their existence will only perpetuate their existence.
No offense. But I’m more or a minority in todays society than most african americans and women. Because I’m a 20-something white male I get passed over for jobs sometimes based solely on my skin color because of affirmative action. Now obviously there’s still parts of the world out there where these minorities are still on bottom but those are few and far between. I mean come the fuck on. We’ve got an african american president. So I think it’s time to drop the whole woe is me thing. Not to mention Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcom X would roll over in there graves if they saw the way most african americans acted. Yeah, you can blame that partly on the educational system in lower income areas. But I don’t see many rappers spreading there wealth around to help inner-city african americans realize there true potential. Instead they spew shit about bitches and hoes and making that green. It’s no surpirse why most inner-city african americans act they way they act. Look at the people they idolize.
^^^ LOL OMG WHAT
so. much. fail.
Wowww… and the bar gets lowered once again. -Joe
We have an African -American president and all of a sudden *poof* it’s supposed to get rid of racial problems? what planet are you on?
Oh and PS….I think maybe the reason you get passed over for jobs is, just as an example, because you don’t know what THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ‘THERE’ AND ‘THEIR’ IS!

FUCK YOU MORGAN FREEMAN.
Every time I think of God he was in the image of Morgan Freeman. Not anymore. The same way that Billy Bob Thornton will always be Santa Claus to me. But now God, aka Morgan, has made a fucking racist comment. He says the Tea Party only wants to get “the black man” out of the White House. He called the Tea Party racist, well fuck you too. People want Obama out of a job because he sucks. He broke all his campaign promises and he sucks at being the president. Before any dumbasses chime in with, “but, but Bush”, shut the flying fuck up. Mr. Freeman keep making your shitty movies and keep your racist comments to yourself.
Even if you disagree with him calling the Tea Party racist, that is not a racist comment. That’s not how racism works.
And all the posters at the Tea Party rallies of Obama as The Joker, and the ‘Go Back To Africa’ signs, and WRONG crap about his being a Muslim, and all the other crazy shit that I’ve seen (most of it also at that infamous 9-12 Glenn Beck rally from a couple years ago), and THAT’S not racist?!
George W Bush sucked at his job too but the American people voted him in TWICE. Now all of a sudden someone does some shit you don’t like and NOW there’s a problem?
As for Morgan Freeman, I’m not exactly sure where it’s said that just because you’re an actor (or singer or whatever), you can’t have an opinion. He’s an American citizen, not to mention a human being so he DOES have that right.
You Teabaggers are just pissed because he had the guts to call you out on your racist ignorant caveman bullshit, and the country’s finally getting clued in too because try as you might, you can’t hide it.
So how’s about YOU shut the fuck up for a change?
