I know you all heard and saw this.

Opinions?

I think it just reinforces the double standard in America of whats ok for some people to say and whats not ok for some people to say. Though this is premature, i doubt TNT apologizes for this. Not that they should, but if someone were to say "white power" there would be a huge uproar and you know it.

edit: idgaf what anyone says. freedom of speech and no censorship. just asking for thoughts

how funny would it have been after chase dunked if he grabbed the mike from kenny and yelled white power into the mic though because he was all pumped.

how awkward have that been on national tv

Pretty sure it had little to do with the dunk as much as it did I believe he was promoting his TV network. I thought it was tasteless and just shows how *** backwards things are. It sets bad examples IMO and is laying ground work that we should once again not be united as people but, by the race or skin color.

Pathetic Diddy but, I didn't really expect much from him.

I just dont understand how proclaiming black power ties into a dunk contest. Sure the white men cant jump movie does because thats a basketball movie.

I just really think if someone was saying something reverse of diddy (white guy with black dunker) blah blah blah it would be an issue. i for one could care less about what diddy said. im all for freedom of speech and no censorship. also i could care less if a white guy said white power. i just think if it was the latter of the 2, it would be a huge issue.

That is far from "open minded" to me. I feel I am open minded by having a hard time thinking most Americans could be 100% 1 race these days (so why say that when he is prob a mix of things?). Meanwhile people still divide each other and they are open minded?

A few reasons sir.

2) You're saying that because you're white, I, as well as whites shouldn't be mad. (Who says whites are mad?) (also implying I'm white)
3) The double standard in America.

Not many black people in America own their own networks.
I'm sure being one of the few to do so is a massive accomplishment.
no? You clearly weren't listening when he started talking about what
new endeavors he was getting into.

Black Power isn't about racism. It's about solidarity towards
your fellow black person. The slogan was created during a time
when African Americans were disenfranchised in this country.
Things have gotten better in this country
but there's still an uphill climb for minorities because of the
residual effects of slavery, segregation and racism in America.

All Diddy was doing was paying homage to that slogan because
he most likely feels an immense pride and connection to his ancestors
that were unable to achieve what he has.

When I watched it, it rubbed me as a little weird, but I didnt think much else of it afterwards, until this thread.

I think the difference between a white person saying "white power," and a black person saying "black power," is that when a white person says white power, they are intending it to be derogatory. They are saying, our race is superior. When a black person says black power, i take it as more of a way to just say "let your voice be heard black people." Black people are still a minority in the US, and minorities voices and communities are usually muted out by the largely white population.

so, in short

Saying "black power" to me, just means that the person saying it, is asking his community to step up, and be heard.

A white person saying "white power," is meant to be derogatory, and that person saying it believes his race is superior.

I'm sitting hear posting about a guy that probably gives out more money at clubs in one month than I make in a year.

Because celebrities and their opinions hold power. For example, Diddy will be starting a new TV network, where his opinions will be voiced to the masses.

Im not sensitive to the comment Diddy made, I am just saying why celebrities opinions mean more than a random guy on the street.

I know you all heard and saw this.

I think it just reinforces the double standard in America of whats ok for some people to say and whats not ok for some people to say. Though this is premature, i doubt TNT apologizes for this. Not that they should, but if someone were to say "white power" there would be a huge uproar and you know it.

edit: idgaf what anyone says. freedom of speech and no censorship. just asking for thoughts

It sounds like your question is coming from a good place. I kinda felt a little uncomfortable myself as a black man when I saw it. He was saying it to promote his new network which is obviously going to be black owned. We dont have alot of those. Still a bad thing to say though. However, the reason why someone saying "white power" would envoke a uproar is self explanitory. People were oppressed and even died with that being screamed at them. I know this sounds horrible but I really cannot empathise with a white person playing the victim card. We can always switch roles if it suchs so much. Any takers?

Because celebrities and their opinions hold power. For example, Diddy will be starting a new TV network, where his opinions will be voiced to the masses.

And Normal people have brains also. If my Internet provider told me I have to you use PC's I wouldn't throw my hands up and admit defeat. I'd either keep using it because I actually own a PC or leave because I don't like to be restricted.

Of course this is racist, but welcome to America. You can make fun of white people, you can make fun of Asians, but God forbid you say a single thing about black people, lest you be eternally labeled as a racist and the scum of society.

its completely pathetic, EVERYBODY SHOULD BE EQUAL and Treated equal, and equally subjected to jokes.

Some of you guys are at least 21+ years old and are still mentioning "How come there isn't a White history month? :Laugh2: Really? The whole purpose of Black history month was to help educated people on the inventions, accomplishments, & contributions of African Americans that for decades had/have gone unacknowledged.

Since its implementation, its helped many people learn a little more about history instead of the 1 way its fed consistently to people to avoid explaining more in-depth.

You cant just remove a Black History Month because suddenly in 2012 people feel that we "dont need it". The significance of it lessens every year because the implementation of it has allowed for more people to know a little more about American history than the cut & paste textbooks that are taught in schools.

As far as ending racism goes.

You have a computer.

Google about the "Black Power" movement of the 70's and its an interesting historical topic to discuss in present-day. The closed fist symbol eventually came to represent revolution of politicial entities, overlords, or even a revolution of social ideologies.

There was no superiority attached to it. But the "brotherhood" of that period of time post-MLK's assasanation and the Civil Rights Movement still holds a place in African American culture. Which is why many African Americans speak of "we", referring to Black people as a whole. Some view a collective view of Black "brotherhood" as a problem while others believe more of such "brotherhood" equals positive results and less conflict.

Also your stat of 82% of Welfare recipients being Black is false.

37% of people on Welfare are Black.
Only 20% of people on Welfare remain on Welfare for over 5 years.

Also please dont confuse the numbers like many people have a problem with doing.
37% of people on Welfare are Black, not 37% of Black people are on Welfare.

It has nothing to do with the hip hop and rap music of today. It has to do with the fact that people my age really do not give a ****...I had no problem with what p diddy said.

Why are white people so insecure? You would think that after running the world for a few hundred years they would be satisfied. They for hundreds of years have killed, enslaved, beaten, humiliate and belittled other races. But no, they can't take any type of criticism or truth. This website for example, some insecure white person decides to make a thread because P Diddy used the term "Black Power" which has a history of being proud of who we are because white people always told us it was bad to be black. The term Black Power has nothing to do with hating whites.

Not to get into welfare because it won't end well, but of course there's going to be more white people on welfare. There's a significantly higher white population than black population. However, in terms of proportion per race, blacks are the highest in that regard. And are the worst off economically.

All I stated are facts. I won't go further into this argument because it won't end well.
I edited this onto the end of my earlier post:

The stat of 82% of Welfare recipients being Black is false.

37% of people on Welfare are Black.
Only 20% of people on Welfare remain on Welfare for over 5 years.

Also please dont confuse the numbers like many people have a problem with doing.
37% of people on Welfare are Black, not 37% of Black people are on Welfare.


As far as Blacks being worse off economically, that brings into question the reasoning or purpose behind differences in pay between races.

But thats an argument for the other side of PSD. :)

Are you serious? As a white male I am ashamed of what our forefathers did and wish it never happened. I am not racist at all and never have been. But he is just an arrogant jerk. There's a difference between a black guy saying "black power" and puff daddy saying it. He's just a jerk. I just didn't find it surprising he would say something like that.

I'd be ashamed if a guy like Justin Timberlake said something liek "white power". It was the past, a very bad past. But to get past it we need to just focus on today where racism needs to be stopped.

Puff Daddy is an idiot I could care less about him, however I'm so sick and tired of whites who pull this hypothetical race card BS. The "oh well if it were a white person then it would be racism blah blah blah". And then they turn around and say that black people use the race card. Also, you shouldn't be ashamed of the evil things that other people did just because they were also white. Just as long as you aren't doing any of those bad things.

If you think the terms "black power" and "white power" are even remotely comparable you have to be either really young, plain ignorant, or seriously in need of a history review.

Short version: one of these phrases originated as a defiant term used by a group trying to overcome overt racism and extreme police brutality/murder. It was also used as a celebration of achievement by a minority group.

One of these terms originated with a group that mutulated, raped, burned, hung, and otherwise killed another group of people for sheer sport.

Not true, not even remotely true.

This might be one of the most dumbest and easiest solved debates.

We can't prove there is a God or there isn't. Why do both fundamentalists and atheists insist on forcing their views on others (I'm not directing this at you, by the way).

Personally, I believe in a god or some higher power, but with that religion and science are dependent on one another.

I also find it hilarious that some of the most influential figures in this debate like Darwin and Mendel were both very religious as well as influential in their science obviously.

He died very young and left a pregnant women to raise three kids. You think his kids think it was his time to go? Breathing is as natural as blinking. There's a scientific explanation for everything even if we haven't found it yet.

Sorry for your familys loss BTW.... but you are a lil loose with the Word NATURAL! .... LIFE itself is not natural, the earth, stars, HOW it all formed? .... i mean honestly dude, you cant tell me things like that are natural because god put them there, i;ve talked to Hundreds of people that believe the way you do , and i understand its tough, i grew up in a christian home background etc.... but i would advise you to do this, you seem like a smart person.... just google things about jesus, and TRY and pray, you have nothing to lose :)

Why are white people so insecure? You would think that after running the world for a few hundred years they would be satisfied. They for hundreds of years have killed, enslaved, beaten, humiliate and belittled other races. But no, they can't take any type of criticism or truth. This website for example, some insecure white person decides to make a thread because P Diddy used the term "Black Power" which has a history of being proud of who we are because white people always told us it was bad to be black. The term Black Power has nothing to do with hating whites.

No he decided to make the thread to point out a double standard. Blacks can say what they wish while whites must bite their tongue to not offend the black community.
