Bow Wow

The rapper has received a lot of backlash since beginning a relationship with Love and Hip Hop New York star Erica Mena. Last month, Shad Moss (Bow Wow) went on a Facebook rant saying:

“Funny how it’s only one race that hates on my relationship and anything I do. BLACK FOLKS. Says a lot about us. Exactly why folks think we can never elevate because we stay holding each other back with the bullish*t and the ignorance. Maybe we are just that. IGNORANT.”

Fans have most recently bashed his fiancée for allegedly getting his name tattooed on her body, pointing out that this is a trend with Mena as she also had her ex Rich Dollaz’s name tatted.



Wayne Brady

In an interview with BET, the Whose Line Is It Anyway star said that he believes Black people are harder on him than any other race.

“No one can be harder on Black people than Black people. And I understand that, we like to claim what’s ours — we are a very loyal audience. We like to call people out when we feel they’re not being what we want them to be.”

    Question is; what have they done for the Black community?

  2. They've done more than most of us. At the very least, they're role models . What have you done for the black community?

  3. Matt Carter Smith role models? for whom?

  4. Tanya Elkafrawy Our youth obviously. I may not agree with everything these celebrities say (particularly Charles Barkley) but it would be hard to deny the fact that they've all become successful doing relatively positive things and acting respectable. You really don't think Kendrick, Miguel, and Keke aren't all examples of young adults that kids of color can look up to? Or that Wayne Brady isn't an example of the fact that if you're black you don't have to behave a certain way in order to become successful?

    Some of these guys have a point, but to me, Charles Barkley commits the greatest sin of all by complaining about our race to white people. What contributes to white success? Firstly, more opportunities for them based on colour, but they also support one another to the end. You will never hear a white person say to black people: the problem with us/white people is. They will denounce racism and call those who do it wrong, but there's never a blanket review of white behaviour. So he's just contributing to white views that group blacks together

    Matt Carter Smith Nothing, I guess.
