“Put Your Fists in the Air!”… P. Diddy Hollers For “Black Power” at NBA All-Star Game (Video)

What double standard?
P Diddy called for “black power” last night at the NBA All-Star Game festivities.

The clenched fist is a symbol of solidarity and support used by several radical groups. Initially, black power was a vague and provocative slogan used by some radical black leaders in the United States during the 1960s, the most notable being Stokely Carmichael.

    So, yeah, buying more P Diddy-whatevah albums will help improve his mood, and help him pretend he’s relevant in the music industry.

  • Voice of Reason

    Just wondering. What would be the reaction if, let’s say, NBA TV guy Kenny Smith was interviewing some Caucasian and the guy shouted out White Power and raised his fist or similar?

  • man_in_tx

    Really encouraging. Great use of network time. Great job, ESPN, or whichever network put this on. So glad we are paying athletes millions of dollars when they applaud this! So glad lots of white kids are buying/listening to this cultural icon’s music. I really like the part where he said “The Revolution is coming.” Wow! Is America a great country, or what?

  • RKae

    Oh, be nice to them, will ya! The left is aborting black people out of existence, so let them have a little moment in the sun before they vanish entirely!

    Lets keep it in the universe of people with their own television networks.

    What if it were say Rupert Murdoch?

    What do you think the reaction would be if Rupert were to hold up his fist during a live television interview and yell White Power, the Revolution is coming?

    Black power and destitution and misery. Look up Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) for a model black society run by lunatics and imbeciles.

  • Got Billy Ayers on Speed Dial

    We all look the same with a fresh coat of pond scum.

    BTW, Diddy’s comments about black power were all part of a ruse, a set-up for white player, Chase Budinger, to perform a dunk by jumping over someone.

  • Highlander

    The revolution is coming, and it will be televised? Hah! I’m looking forward to watching that…

    As we saw when the “occupy” anarchists tried to impose their ideology on America, I have a feeling that things just aren’t going to work out the way they expect them to. The Obama administration has emboldened a few of the more radical elements of the population, but they lack the coordination, intelligence or firepower to “revolutionize” anything. Just because Obama says he has their back doesn’t mean the rest of America is receptive to their particular plans for “change”. Attempting to enact a radical social revolution in a country where you’re outnumbered two to one is a fool’s errand, no matter who’s cheering you on…

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    It’s interesting in that one can see this sort of thing easily; I remember seeing “blackpeoplemeet.com” mentioned in a brief advertisement on some TV channel late one night.

    I’m willing to bet that just even trying to set up a commercial to advertise “whitepeoplemeet.com” would result in absolutely deafening leftist shrieking.

  • squeaky

    10 is right….there has always been the assumption that kkk drones and white supremists would flock to any organization sounding white exclusive and that they’d be welcome with open arms. there was also a time that if a white guy had a clean shaved head he was automatically considered to be a skin head.

  • I’m amazed by the people who have made this barely literate punk wealthy by buying the crap he sells.

    So, in 20 years or so when whites are no longer the majority in this country, we can have our own beauty pageants, cable tv and radio stations, college funds, groups and meetings, and a whole month to celebrate our advancements alone.

  • Carol D’Auria

    As a class (which apparently is the preferred way black “leaders” wish to see their “people”) blacks are just plain foolish.

    If they wish to move beyond where they’re situated, the only concept of “power” which should enter their field of vision is the power associated with raising a base number. By that I mean, learn mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, et alia. In short, learn the hard sciences and improve your station in life.

    But of course it’s probably considered racist to give such advice.

  • squeaky

    “So, in 20 years or so when whites are no longer the majority..” a movie that doesn’t quite make it one being shown to any extent.

    I think I’ll rename myself as “”P.

It should, looking at P. Diddy’s example, right?

  • So, P Ditty is the new self appointed leader of the oppressed? Someone call Birmingham and reserve him a bunk and some writing pads quickly.

    There are many of us who know that a Race War is coming. Better be ready. Oh, and being “down” with the Brothers and Sisters won’t save you from an horrific death. Just ask the thousands of Nuns who raised little Africans in Rhodesia and South Africa and Mozambique only to be raped and murdered by the very same blacks whom they formerly served and supported. The very same children! “But I fed you and marched for Majority Rule!” “But I love Oprah and cry every time I hear a speech by The Right Most Reverend Dr. Martin Luther the King, Blessed Be His Holy Name!” “You should kill those Racist Whites, not those of us who own Al Green’s Greatest Hits and are so comforted when a movie shows us Morgan Freeman as God/the President rather than some evil White!”

    Unless you don’t care if your children are ripped apart by savages you better be ready and if you live near a black area you better get your family out of there. When the EBT cards stop working Civil War II is going to begin one second later and the first casualties will be 100s of thousands of White people murdered by angered blacks. Next time you find yourself in a store in line behind an angry black person making unreasonable demands, spouting loud nonsense, and threatening violence against some poor shop girl because they been disrespeck-ed and sheet, imagine one million of that person taking to the streets angry because they can’t get free Big Breakfast at Mickey D’s anymore?

    Imagine when word goes out that the money train is out of fuel and if you want booze, burgers, smokes, and the chronic you’re going to have to go out and earn it yourself. Can’t fill the cart at WalMart without paying for it anymore. They are going to start bashing the nearest White head in, and if it’s your daughter’s head, too bad for you and your daughter. They know they’ll never be held accountable for what they do in a civil insurrection. When they make the movies about it afterward, the one who bashes your daughters head in will be cast as a hero of the downtrodden. A saintly black driven to justifiable anger by greedy White racists like your child.

    If you’re a White “I Have A Dream” person, you better find your inner Viking and at least feed it a little. If you don’t, you’ll have no chance and perhaps your Race will have no chance. Watch the headlines and tell me you’re confident that we will be able to provide unlimited food, housing, transportation, entertainment, and health care to an ever increasing, mostly non-White population for much longer? Ask yourself if the persons now receiving such benefits are likely to take the deprivation of those benefits as a small political setback after which they will roll up their sleeves and get to work? Or is it more likely (Google “shoe riots” at this point in your reading) that they will being killing and rioting in earnest? If you don’t know the answer, you’re lost already.

    Well, given your detailed premise, where are one million of those same persons you describe going to suddenly find the stamina, the concentration, the attention span, the ability to multi-task complexities, the Spartan ability to run long distances, chase scampering people, swing a few bats and all on 1/10th the calories of a day they are used to, and after years of eating junk food? Sitting around on the easy dole for years doesn’t exactly hone the mental or physical qualities necessary for prolonged campaigns and sieges.

  • lizzy84

    Also can you “imagine what the reaction would be any of the Republican candidates launched a ‘Whites for Romney’, ‘Whites for Santorum’ or ‘Whites for Gingrich’ campaign?….and yet Barack Obama has done the equivalent of precisely that with his launch of ‘African Americans for Obama’.”:


  • Atlanta Media Guy

    Last night you had the white elitists on ABC and the black elitists on TNT! Both shows were boring except the part where Kobe got stung in the nose and the Oscars telecast ended! Nice!

    “Every circumstance has it strengths and weakenesses. Just sayin’”

    You are right about that. But the same people managed to burn Detroit and Los Angeles. You also have to consider who would be giving orders to the National Guard in that circumstance. Obama the Afro-Marxist? Or a sane human being? If whipped into a frenzy by Dear Leader, Dr. Dre, or Puff Daddy, who knows what might happen? The day of the EBT reckoning is coming, whether we want it or not. The money is going to run out and who will bail out the United States?

    More than 20 years after he last played pro basketball, former Lakers star Magic Johnson is ready for a whole new game: running his own TV network.

    The Hall of Famer, who has become a successful business mogul, is preparing to launch Aspire, a 24-hour channel with a focus on what Johnson called positive, uplifting images of African Americans. The basic cable outlet will join other channels targeting black viewers, such as BET and TV One, and will offer opportunities for blacks who have struggled to find work in mainstream Hollywood.


  • dunce

    A rapper only needs black customers, the NBA would whither if whites felt unwelcome and intimidated. The owners know that and maybe half of the players are aware that a black league would be a giant step backwards. Obama would have invent an affirmative action tax to subsidize black basketball. That is in addition to the existing one for amateurs.

    Louis Farrakhan warns of racial hatred that could lead to attempts to kill President Obama

    Knish: The Liberal Uses of Race

    In a fiery lecture to thousands of followers of the Nation of Islam on Sunday in Chicago, Minister Louis Farrakhan warned that racial hatred could lead to attempts to assassinate President Barack Obama.

    Farrakhan spent much of his oration decrying what he cast as Satan’s influence over racist forces in politics and society before asking a pointed rhetorical question: “Do you think they’re wicked enough to be plotting our brother’s assassination as we speak?”

    Farrakhan delivered his speech to an enthusiastic crowd of adherents packed loosely into the United Center for the Nation of Islam’s annual observance of Saviours’ Day, which celebrates the birth of the faith’s founder, W. Fard Muhammad. This year’s events marked the 82nd year of the religion’s existence in North America.

    With his finger jabbing at the air above him and his voice frequently raising to an indignant shout, Farrakhan, 78, delivered his message to a crowd of men in dark suits with bow ties and women in shimmering white gowns and scarves.

    He spoke for more than three hours on a broad array of topics, excoriating U.S. foreign policy, suggesting that the9/11attacks were a government-planned pretext for war in the Middle East, lamenting recent extreme weather and attacking mothers for serving their children food from McDonald’s. He also returned repeatedly to a topic that has attracted intense controversy in the past: the influence of Jews in politics and media.

    Farrakhan drew a distinction between noble Jews and followers of “the synagogue of Satan,” and he pointed to a recent incident in which the publisher of a Jewish magazine suggested Israeli security forces could help preserve Israel by killing Obama. He attacked Israeli policies, while also directing criticism at perceived Jewish influence in the U.S.

    “Jewish people were not the origin of Hollywood, but they took it over,” he said, blaming the entertainment industry for degrading the country’s morality.

    While Farrakhan called out conservatives for questioning Obama’s citizenship and even criticizing the figure of first lady Michelle Obama, he also attacked the president for his support of efforts to remove Middle Eastern leaders and warned him against any potential military action in Iran. The crowd roared as he called on them to be “conscientious objectors” to any strike against Iran.

    He again condemned the killing of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. Farrakhan was friends with the slain dictator, and the Nation of Islam’s headquarters was purchased 40 years ago with a $3 million loan from Gadhafi.

    Farrakhan also suggested that Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces, instead of being detained for questioning, because the government might not have been able to prove all its accusations against him.

    Farrakhan’s got some nerve, after what he did to Malcom X.

    A total racist comment. I cant believe there is no talk about it today. If a white man had said White Power….good lord, the NAACP would go crazy, and the white guy would be crucified.
