"It depends on what the meaning of the word 'IS' is."




I've been following this like OJ's. A word. More specifically, the last one or two letters of a word may decide the fate and sentencing of Nicholas Minucci.

Black boys up to no good in the wrong neighborhood. White vigilante with a bat makes a sound like "Barry Bonds." Minucci, with racially motivated crimes on his record, is arrested. Case closed.

But, this guy is part of the new Howard Beach. Racism, that's an autosomal recessive trait. We wear G-Unit, Sean John, and bump Snoop D-O-double G in our $60,000 Escalade. DWU. That's Driving while unemployed. "What up, nigg__?" (that's Howard Beach talk, it means I am protecting the neighborhood)

This wasn't a hate crime. This was a white kid that grew up near the projects, with Hot 97. He's got Black friends, too. Question for juror # 12: "Do you listen to rap music?" Then you must be familiar with the new and improved n-word. They use it amongst themselves, he grew up around them. He's a product of his environment.

Lawyers are geniuses. The original hustlers. They'll sell you ice in the winter. He spells it nigg_, not nigg__. He fell on his head. Minucci loves Black people. Look, he's reading a Randall Kennedy book, and he's a Black Harvard professor.

White people want to know, "Can we say it?" That's reverse racism.

Words are just words right? It's not a riot, it's a protest. Fair and balanced.

Q-Tip had this to say (Midnight Marauders http://rapidshare.de/files/22071145/mm_tribe1993.rar). Mos Def has this to add (Black on Both Sides http://rapidshare.de/files/22089528/bobs_md.rar). Zev Love X (that's MF Doom for the hipsters out there) also interjected (Black Bastards http://rapidshare.de/files/22072499/kmd_bb.rar).

Charles Earland didn't even need any words (Black Talk! http://rapidshare.de/files/22067653/earland_bt.rar).

Dude. Its art to me. As far as I am concerned, we can print them and have a gallery showing.
