I always considered The Emmies as mostly white awards, especially this year when I read the list of nominees.

Regina Hall has a point, plus she's IN the television field, so it's her right. Oh, yeah, I forgot, African Americans aren't allowed to vent in the US anymore.

If it wasn't for Ice Cube putting her in the movies he produces and directs. She wouldn't have any work at all. That is the only jobs she gets. Obviously Ice Cube uses her because they are friends. Or to keep some not so good black actresses and actors working. Regina King is not too good looking. And she is not that good of an actress to be nominated for an Emmy.

It seems she has a personal gripe because she knows Alaina Reed and has work with her......

Alaina Reed, of 227 was the girlfriend or wife of the brotha who played the "Predator". And both of them passed away. R.I.P

Bullsh!t; she was on 227; was nominated for an Oscar and was in Ray AND Jerry McGuire and Enemy of the State. Look at her films. Ice Cube??? Are you kidding me??? Look at her work. And Regina King is a beautiful woman. You have no idea of what you're talking about.

The Emmies are white; Breaking Bad, Lost??? Are you fkking kidding me??? I realized the Emmies are lilly white when I watched the entire series of HBO's The Wire and realized that show never won any Emmies. One of the best shows ever produced on TV. I love Mad Men, great show but no where as good as The Wire. People, please. The Oscars used to be lilly white too but they're a little bit better now, at least two or sometimes three well deserved Black actors or actresses get recognized for their work every year.

You guys need your own award shows. Oh wait, The NAACP Image Awards, The BET Awards, The Soul Train Awards, The Vh1 Hip-Hop Honors, The Source Awards, The You’re a Person of Color Awards...

It is not our fault black people make shitty movies and make music that appeals to only 40 million people.

She should have kept her little tirade down to the snubbing of Hall in the memorium roll.But to use terms like "Whiter than Ever" is only going to hurt her career. She might get some hood points, but that's about it. But maybe that was her intent.

Are Egyptians allowed to call themselves African-Americans?

Did ya think that one through? Claiming the whooooole continent because being called a black guy was offensive?

What will the next PC name be? I mean they do change every 20 years or so. I can't wait to hear what it is!

If it was'nt for our music. There would be no music. All music is mostly, inspired or copied from blacks. And OUR music are represented in your commercials and movies. And our Artists sells MILLIONS, of records. And your children love our music. So you can suck two dcks and blow on some pigs balls with that bullschitt you just posted. Now whites do some cool schitt when it comes to ideas and creativity. But don't exclude, that when it comes to music blacks are talented as well as gifted. Stop the madness white people! You don't rock in everything!

Music existed in Europe long before we discovered you guys pooping on the beaches and dancing naked around fires beating on human skinned drums.

Don't forget that the 'microphones','turntables','sy nthesizers', electronic 'bass drums','recording gear','FM transmitters' and 'television systems' are ALL white innovations.

"And our Artists sells MILLIONS, of records. And your children love our music. So you can suck two dcks and blow on some pigs balls with that bullschitt you just posted. "

Big deal, they sell millions. There are MILLIONS of black people. Roughly 40 million at last count. That is why you guys have your own awards shows.

My children do not like black music nor do any children around here. The United States is not New York.

As for the homosexual and bestiality acts you desire me to do..that is just sick. No wonder there are so many fatherless black children running around when you have desires like this.

We are black people, not sure what the problem is if blacks danced around naked beating on drums. That would merely show it's part of their/our culture. And yes, it is a big deal that they sell/sold millions of records. Exactly, what have YOU as an individual sold? What have you contributed to this country except for complaining about another race of people? And Blacks, should have their own awards shows so they can be awarded for their talent. Nothing wrong with that......

Please don't throw stones about who does what when it comes to beastiality. Because your race was the first i saw banging and sucking on animals. Disgusting! Floating around the internet for all to see. Oh, and i don't have children. So having children without a Father, does not apply to me. I sure hope you are a good Father to your children. You know white kids always use profanity around their parents and scream "I HATE YOU". Lol! And you are a Father, with a picture Dr. Zaius. I bet your house is dirty and dysfunctional.

I see you have a desire for black people. You come on here everyday to be around us. You are a miserable soul.
