Skip to comments.Belafonte blasts 'white America' for black gun crimes!
Posted on 02/14/2013 1:42:21 PM PST by wesagain
WASHINGTON Harry Belafonte, entertainer, long-time left-wing activist and admirer of Third World dictators, inserted himself into the national debate on gun control when he claimed white Americans who agitate for gun rights are ignoring the black river of blood that washes the streets of our nation.
The actor was on hand to be honored at the 2013 NAACP Image Awards when he asserted in his acceptance speech that the group most devastated by Americas obsession with the gun is African Americans.
Although making comparisons can be dangerous, there are times when they must be noted, he said. America has the largest prison population in the world. And of the over 2 million men, women and children who make up the incarcerated, the overwhelming majority is black. We are the most unemployed, the most caught in the unjust systems of justice, and in the gun game, we are the most hunted.
Belafonte continued: The river of blood that washes the streets of our nation flows mostly from the bodies of our black children. Yet, as the great debate emerges on the question of the gun, white America discusses the constitutional issue of ownership, while no one speaks of the consequences of our racial carnage.

I was wondering if anyone would connect the dots on this....so the next step is....pass a law that says Blacks cannot own a gun...that should be the logical conclusion from Harry
Am I owed an award?
Maybe if you play up your last name - "Belafonte" sounds Hispanic enough to get somebody's attention in DC. :)
Why does anybody even care what that demented old racist thinks?
He’s lost a few bananas......
Okay Harry, I’ll take the hit for black folks shooting black folks but don’t try to blame me for Rap, Hip Hop, backwards hats and baggy jeans. That’s on you, sucka!
This old America-hating racist still alive?
I was waiting for another report from the Alzheimer’s Lobby.
Go tally your banana mon!
The very essence of black psychology is resentment. Resentment implies “others” are responsible for one’s inadequacies. Guess who the “others” are?
Belafonte is a Communist, who is cynically using the cover of racism to advance his Communist agenda.
I bet the Tutsis wished they had some guns when the Hutus showed up with their machetes.
Second point is slave masters have a responsibilities for the actions of their slaves. If the slaves have guns it is the responsibility of the slave owners to take the guns away. Slaves only have two thirds of the constitutional rights of non-slaves, so forget about their constitutional rights.
I am with you Belafonte 100%
The NAACP, like CAIR and the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) are seditious outfits. I look forward to the day when a Conservative with real courage and an unabashed love for America will prosecute these vile outfits to the fullest extent of the law.
I know whereof I speak when it comes to NAACP since I was once a member. Back in the early 1960's when I was a naive young college student from up north going to school in Dixie, I foolishly believed then that the NAACP was worthwhile.
Wisdom came slowly to me but eventually I saw the light and transferred to a Conservative Christian college. I then came to realize that the NAACP was a fatally-flawed outfit, steeped in marxism and communist group-think. Just look at how and founded this anti-American organization. Since its emergence from the Niagara Movement in the early 20th Century, its leadership and membership have been fifth columnists.
Having been a card-carrying member of that organization and having attended meetings, I was in the belly of the beast. Based upon my experience, the NAACP was then and remains today, at best, a fraud. More realistically, it's a racist, subversive organization. I regret now that they got a penny of my money. But I sure learned a lot firsthand of just how wicked was and is the NAACP.
I love how Belafonte portrays the predator as the prey. Erase all the gun-related crime data and guess which ethnic group is (still) the most violent? Yup.
“”.....dont try to blame me for Rap, Hip Hop, backwards hats and baggy jeans.”””
HA! That sounds like a picture of the middle class white kids that rome suburban schools.
Wearing bling... sideways hat... baggy pants... gang hand signs... THUG LIFE!... get into mom’s minivan and go home.
Shove it up your smelly Obama, Harry.
Oh, forgot, your head is already up Obama’s smelly Obama.
I’ve had it with your black racism.
Go to bed with that tarantula you sang about a century ago.
Wrong, Harry. Just about everyone of any importance in the news media and government have spoken of it, ad nauseum. Numerous laws are on the books to deal with it, to no avail - the carnage continues. The problem, you pompous d!p$#!t, is cultural rot.
Harry’s losing it . . . or maybe he always was way out there, I don’t know . . . but he’s really sounding nutty with this race paranoia stuff.
Without God, life in even America will be hell on earth.
Broken families, substance abuse, and godlessness in combination will destroy a people as completely as napalm.
Reminds me of this guy:
Okay..... so, us white people are physically holding the hands of the black people while they are pulling the trigger? Black people are incapable of acting on their own? Did I get that right?
A man is a man you retard Belefonte! Quit hiding behind race and man up!
You’ve got a point.
He doesn’t seem to have a problem with prohibiting people from owning guns,
and the overwhelming majority of gun deaths of black “children” are due to other blacks,
so, if eliminating the gun is the solution,
then just make it illegal for those doing the shooting
to own the guns.
Gee Harry. I wonder why you are so hot to get the Blacks in America back under the old SLAVE CODES.
It didn’t start there
No. We're very much aware of it, which is why we want to be prepared.
Communists are such caring humanitarians.
So...what he’s saying is that whites must have our 2A rights stripped, because blacks can’t help themselves from breaking the law with drive-by shootings, etc? Well, if that’s the way it works-blacks must have their right to have sex stripped away, as blacks commit the majority of interracial rape, something like 115-0. The rate of white-on-black rape is so low as to be statictically negligible, and there are NO instances of whites raping elderly black women. I will NOT have my 2A rights infringed because too many blacks won’t stop killing indiscriminately and ignoring exisitng gun laws (of which there are already too many). How are whites to blame in places like Chicago whe guns are practically completely outlawed, yet the black crime rate, especially that of gun crime, are through the roof How are whites to blame for that, when whites are held to the law, but blacks commit gun crime as if no laws exist?
Now, I wonder how it was that the thug/gangsta life was made to seem attractive....
Better go tally your IQ points again, Harry.
Amazing. He correctly identifies the problem but completely misses on the cause. Actually, what he identifies as the effect IS the cause.
Now FRiend, that's the unvarnished truth that ought to be at the center of "Black History Month" instead of the platitudes that the liberals shove down the throats of schoolchildren. It's a must read and it parallels precisely what I found during that foolish, rebellious period of my youth when I was dues-paying member of the NAACP...truly black, white and RED all over.
He careful omits to say who does all the “hunting”. Hasn’t he heard that it’s against the law-for whites-to own most guns in the places where black gn violence-by blacks, upon mostly blacks but also some non-blacks-is the highest? Guess that wouldn’t fit his “evil whitey” narrative.
I wouldn’t want them as slaves.
But, I wouldn’t have a problem checking off a box on my tax return for the “Ship A Disgruntled Minority Back” fund.
Hey it’s Valentine’s Day Harry......where’s the love???
Barack Obama’s love for himself is so great that all Americans can bask in the reflected warmth of that love.
Let’s see: Harry Belafonte......Harry Belafonte......oh yeah, now I remember hearing about him. Didn’t he have a career in show business about 40 or 50 years ago?
“....Americans who agitate for gun rights are ignoring the black river of blood that washes the streets of our nation.
Does Harry really think that taking guns away from White law-abiding citizens will stop the river of blood washing among “Holder’s People”?
Hey Harry, when daylight came you should have gone home and stayed there.
Well if the blacks would just stop stealing guns from white households there wouldn’t be the black gun problem. (I can be just as snarky as he can - legally)
LIAR...Conservatives talk all the time about this...AND have solutions...but the racists aren't interested in solutions.
Oh, Harry, we been talking about the consequences of your racial carnage for a long time, you just haven't been listening.
We've been talking about it for years, and we've just gotten called "racist" for it. Personally, I've given up on you and your people.
Perhaps you should address your comments to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, they don't seems to care how many blacks kill other blacks. If the killer isn't a white guy and the victim black, it just doesn't matter to them, admit it.
Now, come on Mr. Tally Man man, tally me banana, daylight come and, hey, you know the rest by heart, it was your only hit, after all...
Many bananas short of a boatload.
So, his unstated point is that blacks are not responsible enough to own firearms without committing crimes, unlike the majority of their white counterparts? Who is the real racist Harry?
“Belafonte is no stranger to controversy, recently advocating that critics of President Obama should be thrown in jail............”The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a Third World dictator and just put all of these guys in jail, he said to MSNBCs Al Sharpton regarding how deal with those who stand in the way of Obamas second-term goals.””
Proof that Belafonte makes a better case for gun ownership than anyone here.
Harry Belafonte just another Black Ku Klux Klan racist. I am so sick of these people and their White Guilt Liberal apologists. The black community needs to start taking responsibility
