1) Don't argue over a bill in Mexico if you aren't Mexican.
2) Don't go to Mexico

Considering the level of violence the nation of islam advocates, it's hard to garner a lot of sympathy when one of them is subjected to it. That being said, it was incredibly evil if it was all over the bill - but if we're honest, that argument probably turned to a race issue..

What moran gets shiatfaced drunk in the rough part of Mexico City and expects to live?

And what's with the teardrop by his eye--gang tat or memorial marking for someone?

Wow, troubled kid who brought a knife to school in the third grade, arrested in Iran for god knows what, mother buster for trying to put a hit on Ferrekhan, set his grandmothers house on fire in which she burned up in, and people are saying "the poor thing, he was in mexico, to report on deportation, but he just happened to wonder into a Mexican whorehouse, drinks 1200 dollars worth of booze, then shows his ass when the tab comes."  Gee, what happens south of the border.  Ain't no Blackomatic immunity for deadbeats, and you do not run your mouth down there.

The body of Mr. Shabazz, who for years had wrestled with living in the shadow of his grandfather's fame

Yes he was certainly trying to live up to his grandfather.....what with the teardrop eye tattoo and all.

But he never meant shiat to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain

They ain't shiat in Mexico.

I have seen the same thing happen in Colombia many a time, some giant black or white dude from the states shows his ass in a bar and gets mad over a tab or the cost of the whore and they end up with a broken leg and their grill broken out,cause the taxi driver was the club owner,hookers friend who takes them to the middle of nowhere and six guys tune them up.  Lucky not to end up in a hole many times.

South of ye old border ain't ain't no joke.  Brown people do not play.

"This religion (Islam) recognizes all men as brothers. It accepts all human beings as equals before God, and as equal members in the Human Family of Mankind. I totally reject Elijah Muhammad's racist philosophy, which he has labeled 'Islam' only to fool and misuse gullible people as he fooled and misused me. But I blame only myself, and no one else for the fool that I was, and the harm that my evangelical foolishness on his behalf has done to others."

-- Malcolm X

There are those who will consider it their duty, as friends of the Negro people, to tell us to revile him, to flee, even from the presence of his memory, to save ourselves by writing him out of the history of our turbulent times. Many will ask what Harlem finds to honor in this stormy, controversial and bold young captain - and we will smile. Many will say turn away - away from this man, for he is not a man but a demon, a monster, a subverter and an enemy of the black man - and we will smile. They will say that he is of hate - a fanatic, a racist - who can only bring evil to the cause for which you struggle! And we will answer and say to them : Did you ever talk to Brother Malcolm? Did you ever touch him, or have him smile at you? Did you ever really listen to him? Did he ever do a mean thing? Was he ever himself associated with violence or any public disturbance? For if you did you would know him. And if you knew him you would know why we must honor him.

Ah, it's so cute that you think I am, or have ever been, wait staff.  Can you get me a Diet Pepsi when you're done taking that order? I'm thirsty. Chop, chop, now garcon.

When I was last in Mexico City, my Mexican friend who lives there refused to go near Plaza Girabaldi even during the day time.  Mexico City can be awesome if you know where to go, and more importantly, where not to go.

Too bad.

Yes, I am aware of his past. But there is always a chance he could have made a real change in his life and done some good.

MALCOLM X: Why? Because only a man who is ashamed of what he is will marry out of his race. There has to be something wrong when a man or a woman leaves his own people and marries somebody of another kind. Men who are proud of being black marry black women; women who are proud of being black marry black men.
This is particularly true when you realize that these Negroes who go for integration and intermarriage are linking up with the very people who lynched their fathers, raped their mothers, and put their kid sisters in the kitchen to scrub floors. Why would any black man in his right mind want to marry a lyncher, a murderer, a rapist, a dope peddler, a gambler, a hog eater... Why would any black man want to marry a devil... for that's just what the white man is.

oops, sorry bout all that - Malcolm

My friend inherited his dad's house in Cuernavaca years ago and spent a few years living down there.  It all ended when he got into a drunken fight with the local strip club owner and tried to report him to the Federales for having a gun behind the bar.  The Federales were friends with the club owner and took my friends outside, kicked the shiat out of them and robbed them.  Then hog-tied them, drove them out to the jungle and told them to run as they took potshots at them.  My friend lost his front teeth and half a finger.  They were lucky they were sober enough to run fast.

What if you're not a racist, but are considering it as a philosophy? Like, you're out on bond and facing a lengthy prison sentence, and have decided your best option for survival is to join a prison gang? Would being able to quote Malcolm X help or hurt your chances with joining a white or latino gang?

I'm just asking for, um, a friend.
 
2013-05-14 02:15:52 PM
Malcolm X apologized for being a bigot 48 years ago. Please don't wait that long to apologize for your bigotry.

And, of course, the traditional method of attacking a successful black man in America--insinuate he's a homosexual. If that doesn't work, hire some people to murder him.

It sounds like your friend is someone who should decide what is best, then do the opposite.

Wait, what?
More importantly, are you trying to insinuate that modern America with it's black president, congressional black caucus, celebrities and black business leaders is still systemically racist? Really?
Have you never been out of this country? There are a lot of really oppressed cultures out there. Black America....not so much anymore. And thank God for that.
