If there was ever a reason to distance oneself from a community, this is it.

This evening, a friend of mine pointed out a quote; by Jaime Foxx from a film protesting the 'innocence' (that is a joke) of Stan 'Tookie' Williams, founder of the 'Crips' street gang:

"If Stan Tookie Williams had been born in Connecticut in the same type of situation, and was a white man, he would have been running a company," Foxx told the AP when the film aired last year on FX. "But, born a black man who has the capability of having brute strength and the capability of being smart in the ways of the world, he's going to get into what he gets into."

You read that one right. This sounds like the same type of BS that has been used to say to blacks that they are 'predestined' or 'predetermined' to be criminals. To quote the late Marvin Gaye 'makes me wanna holler, throw up my hands' in anger.

Then again, there is this to be said: those of you reading this who are black who have resolved to keep your distance (with exceptions, like I have done) from the community, you have done the right thing. Defending someone of this ilk shows how far down the sewer pipe things have gone.

By the by a listing of the people that this monster had killed is listed on the Gus Wired site. We need to keep the faith as far as these folks are concerned and remember that they are the true victims, the ones sho do not have the hollyweirdoes running around shouting their names out.
