7 Black Celebs Who Defended Their Racist Friends

When Jay Z’s collaboration with Barneys New York came under fire last year after reports surfaced that the retail store racially profiled Black shoppers, the veteran rapper claimed he didn’t have enough information to take a stand against the allegations of racism.

“I am against discrimination of any kind but if I make snap judgments, no matter who it’s towards, aren’t I committing the same sin as someone who profiles?” he asked in a statement on his website.

Jay Z seemed to stall for more information — just long enough to see the deal with Barneys go through.

    i disagree with the Keenan addition. that was pushed by feminists who had you looking at SNL and not the black women that were on MadTV.
    and Mike Vick was a broken man, yall didnt stand by him when he was talkin S to white people and let him rot in jail, didnt send him no letters or nothin
    and yall really should have put in the Miami Dolphins, cause that was some bull right there.

    Since these entertainers NEVER have SERIOUS conversations with their white "friends" on the condition of black people and how to be active in assisting us.

    They don't have these conversations out of fear and ineptitude.

    And btw, Stacy Dash cannot be considered "Black" anymore.
