"Were being locked away in a mass incarceration epidemic that is as bad as the Jewish holocaust."
Dr. Boyce Watkins, in a commentary criticizing rap star Jay-Z for his disrespect of Harry Belafonte, made the above remark when lambasting Jay-Z for not doing more for the black community.
I am sickened that someone can compare the attempted extermination of an entire group of people to the consequences of criminal actions leading to imprisonment. Not a soul commented on that passage via the website (which I stumbled across through a Facebook "friend.")

Stop breaking the law and you won’t go to prison. It’s real simple.
I see that the racial agitation is working, thank you very much Obama.
Richard Pryor once felt that way too....
It made my heart ache, you know, to see all these beautiful black men in the joint. The warriors should be out there helping the masses. I felt that way, I was real naive. Six weeks I was up there and I talked to the brothers. I talked to ‘em, and ... THANK GOD WE GOT PENITENTIARIES!
I asked one, ‘Why did you kill everybody in the house?’ He says, ‘They was home.’
I met one dude, kidnap-murdered four times. And I thought, three times, that was your last, right? I says, ‘What happened?’ ‘I can’t get this s—t right! But Im getting paroled in two years.’”
It has been fascinating to see the veil of morality and fairness drop from these Civil Rights Establishment groups and people, to see racism, anti-American cronyism, and filth.
Mass Welfare = No Fathers = Mass Criminality = Mass Incarceration
The might want to check for the fire before they try to bottle up all the smoke.
Send all of them to the Utopia which is Liberia. (for prisoners and whining Blacks. The good ones are welcome to stay)
It’s spiral of chaos. They insist that it’s racism that keeps black criminals in jail. When they are let out through lenient sentencing, parole or whatever, they return to their communities and commit violence (e.g. Chicago) and that allows them to claim racism yet again.
So in other words it’s racism to put black criminals in jail, and it’s also racist to let them out of jail.
Dr. Boyce Watkins is the author of the lecture series, The 8 Principles of Black Male Empowerment.
So this if this asshat is to be so loose with his holocaust analogies, then with his logic black males "do it to themselves", much as Jewish antagonists will blame Jews for the Holocaust (which only happened when it's convenient to make a comparison).
Does anyone with half a brain really wonder why black america is stagnating while Latinos are set to become the dominant minority in the next generation, both economically and academically (at least when compared to black americans)?
"Black empowerment"...yeah, right. What a role model.
Yep. Where are the bodies stacked like cord wood in mass graves?
Read this and see the solution. The absence of adult males is the cause of juvenile delinquents.
That sounds like a summary of their culture as a whole.
from a link on a page where I had located a photo of Boyce Watkins
Welcome to Blacks in San Antonio
this screams “your’e different” “ you’re black” “your’e not up to snuff”
Boyce needs to get a “real job”..and perhaps at some time in the not too distant future a REAL LIFE
George Bush n them done hired a jooo to make all that stuff INVISIBLE...../s
He’s a Graduate of the “Dick Durbin School of Hyperbole.”
I’m listening to it right now. He was pretty funny. I love his little riff on Gene Wilder, “What do you think they’d do to us if we were in here?”
For every one that’s imprisoned, there’s 10 that’s taken part of a violent flash mob that hasn’t got caught.
I’d love to see this guy dumped right in the middle of Gen Pop, guy wouldn’t last five minutes.
To all of you blacks that hate America... you are no better than anyone else... you are not special... you were created equal. Look what your people have done with that privilege that we as Americans have been blessed with! To the rest of the black community that loves America and lives and works as an American that appreciates what we have... GOD bless you.
“Dr. Boyce Watkins, in a commentary criticizing rap star Jay-Z for his disrespect of Harry Belafonte, made the above remark when lambasting Jay-Z for not doing more for the black community.”
Multiculturalism and affirmative action have destroyed the 1950’s and 1960’s goal of “integration”. As long as politicians and black leaders are preoccupied with getting more for the “black community” instead our common society, the racial problem will not go away. The focus on race is balkanizing our nation and destroying our common culture.
The beauty of the melting pot was immigrants assimilating voluntarily and peacefully into the American culture which was a blend of the cultures of the immigrants. American food, art, religion, music, literature, language, and history was an amalgam of the traditions and experience brought by its immigrants.
It seems today’s blacks are wedded to preserving the destructive urban ghetto culture instead of assimilating into the broader American culture. They, and their progressive white enablers, define American culture in racial terms. Instead of the melting pot it is now “white culture”. Integration is no longer the goal. Equality, in the traditional sense of “equality of opportunity” is no longer the goal. Advantage at the expense of others is now the goal (i.e. redistribution). Redistribution has never been part of the American experience nor has it been the goal of most Americans.
By refusing to join the bigger society, blacks leaders condemn the black community to an endless cycle of poverty, despair, and anger which they can exploit to maintain their dominion over their followers and their prestigious positions as spokespeople for the black community with their progressive patrons.
Well, between Obama and the Zimmerman trial, we’ve learned it’s racism to stay behind a locked door when a black man walks by, and it’s racism to get out of the car, so yeah, that’s the construct: damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
That’s too easy.....
I mean, what’s Homey to do when someone disses him?
Gotta bust some caps for your street cred.
Perhaps we should invite Watkins to VIEW that comparison?
what are these people dreaming about?
I guess the fact the Jews did nothing wrong, and each individual black prisoner is being punished for the crimes that he or she committed is not relevant.
I am so sick of this enabling of criminals by our so-called intelegensia
Maybe I missed something, but I don’t recall the Jews committing any crimes, or the Nazis even charging them with any crimes...
Thumbs down on article...
Nothing but a black circle jerk and name dropping
The solution is simple, if you see a young black man, just remain in your car but don’t lock your doors.
I really wanted to believe in the American dream,but I think you are right. It is really sad. Yes, that is their culture and so many of them refuse to assilimate into American society.
Their peers pressure them to stay on the plantation, and remains slaves.
I celebrate the black conservatives, who are standing up right now. I pray for them. I support them and enjoy their company.
Think of how frustrating it is for someone like Dr. Ben Carson. He is a real trailblazer. Even in 2013 more people of African ancestry choose tribal slavery, over American freedom.
Interesting and frustrating.
A good many overseers were and are black. In fact its one of the most overlooked problems of Detroit.
As one black conservative told me, “Low level city employees are street enforcers”. If you step too far out of line, your water meter might be removed for replacement and not replaced for a week or so. For businessmen its far worse because there are an army of inspectors to harass them.
The U.S. President = The Community Agitator (no longer the Community Organizer)
These people are insane. Who writes this crap? I sometimes think a KKK klansman is actually writing this in an effort to increase to black racism.
Oh, I totally know what you mean.
I remember going into Detroit right after Coleman Young was elected and there was such a feeling of being watched. Of the Mafia looking to see every move.
It was an oppressive environment. Remember all the debate over that fist? It was quite obvious what Coleman was trying to tell us.
I have seen it play out here as well, in North Carolina. I worked on election day at a Black, AME church in the Raleigh area. Totally out of my zone. BUT I wanted to see what was going on.
IT literally made me cry. The fraud. The organized oppression of blacks. There is a Democratic machine that keeps these people stupid, hungry and willing to commit voter fraud. The back stabbing, the lying, the manipulations. They mock and attack each other. They are afraid of each other. They are worried the “important machine people are going to see them step out of line.”
These people are not free.
You have to see it. AND it is organized through the church, the place where people should feel free and feel peace.
I am not kidding. After seeing it for myself, I cried in despair for them.
Coleman Young was a full blown soviet style communist.
But it's worse than that because young black males are a little over 3% of the population and commit the vast majority of those murders.
So where' the REAL holocaust?
I knew GWB had a hand in this somehow.
“Were being locked away in a mass incarceration epidemic that is as bad as the Jewish holocaust.”
Fortunately for you being an idiot is not an offense to get locked up for. Comparing innocent Jews being gathered from their homes placed in cattle cars and taken to gas chambers with CRIMINALS, arrest for a crime, given a jury trial and after being convicted sent to a prison is asinine to the nth degree....
The blacks that cry racisim and plead that they are being persecuted, imprisoned and what ever “bad” happens to them is all the fault of “whitey” are too dumb to realize that they cause their own problems. We put people in prison for commiting crimes, not for their race. There are thousands of whites in prison as well for BREAKING THE LAWS. Until the blacks can get a grasp on what the cause is for their being incarcerated, they will continus filling the prisons. Stop breaking the laws. NO MORE WHINING, WAKE UP!
Get a clue, Dr. Watkins. They are not in jail for being black; they are in jail for their BEHAVIOR. In the Holocaust the Jews were enslaved, assaulted and murdered just for being Jews. There’s a big effin’ difference!
Guys like you pi$$ me off to no end!
Plenty of adult males are around, just no biological fathers. And welfare programs are the root cause behind the missing biological fathers.
He really was a communist, and most blacks like that. They like the Hierarchy stuff. They will climb all over each other to get the top of pile, and it is sort of expected.
After Coleman made all Whites feel uncomfortable about being in the city- there was a “renaissance” (Hence the Renaissance center), but there wasn’t enough money there to support all of that- they were always dumping tons of money into trying to get the Suburbanites to come back and spend money.
Those were actually some fun years. We had lots of cultural events and the F1 race was fun. Greek town had great bars and and shops. That was when there were Americans (from the suburbs) in the city, in huge groups, so it was fun. But there was always an air of “us and them” looming around. Not two different skin colors- two different cultures.
Communists and Americans.
At non event times, we felt more comfortable amount the people, going across the border into Windsor!
In the end, it was the communism that killed the Motor City.
To avoid car-jackings, we are told to lock our doors, and many new cars lock automatically now. I don’t think even a compromise will work on this one.
You have a duty to retreat.
