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.
