David Banner vs. Al Sharpton: It just hit the fan!

Have you guys seen this? David Banner has called Sharpton a permed-out pimp. And here is the response from one of Sharpton's spin doctors: ""From time to time we do encounter people that have sexual fantasies about Reverend Al Sharpton, but they are always women and Crump's proposition is a first." WOW! LOL I leave home for a few days and all hell breaks loose!!!

I'm not sure the words that Banner chose are going to score him/y'all any new supporters. It might get current ones pumped, though, I suppose. Sad all around.

You're right.. It's completely different from Imus. He's white, and talking about a girl. This guy is black, and is talking about another male black. Gotcha. Can we just say "Stupid all around?"

"permed out pimp" is pretty funny, but the rest of Banner's diatribe just makes him look like an angry jackass. This is *so* not the same as Don Imus using his radio show to attack a bunch of college age women. Sharpton's an adult, and deliberately puts himself in the midst of controversy, as does Banner.

I read the article. I thought it was pretty funny. Maybe Banner is angry? I'm angry too. Banner brings up a good point about the execution style murders in New Jersey. Why isn't Jesse and Al up in arms about that instead of trying to ban 3 words?? Please.

Banner is our boy and all, ut what he needs to realize is that when he talks badly about Al's hair, he's also talking about James Brown, Al's mentor. He can talk about Sahrpton and be alright for a minute with me. But I be damn if he's going to badmouth the legacy of James Brown. "Good God." " I wanna jump back and kiss myself." "I can't stand it, when you touch me." "Get up off of that Thang and start releasing some pressure." "I feel good." Rap deserved some criticism. Sharpton is trying not to be a hiphopocrit with the Imus and Rap matters.

Banner, Al, Jesse...do not speak for me as an American or as a black man born and raised in the great state of Mississippi! They and others like them never have and never will represent me and my thoughts on religion, politics or any other subject! Al and Jesse have, for the most part, fought the wrong battles. There are many other socio-economic issues that plaque our community and bickering with one another is certainly not going to solve any of them. I was born in 1971, raised by ONLY my mother (she and my father divorced when I was about a year old) in the Valley North sub-division in North Jackson. I have listened to hip hop/rap all my life and somewhere during that time I graduated from Tougaloo College, have a great job, have been married 14 years and have two daughters (both with the same woman)! I see David’s point but I think that he is handling the issue all wrong...

I saw pictures of James Brown on CNN when he had his 'fro for a little while. I wish he kept it. It really looked good on him. I wonder what Sharpton would look like with a short 'fro or low fade. I have listened to hip hop/rap all my life and somewhere during that time I graduated from Tougaloo College, have a great job, have been married 14 years and have two daughters (both with the same woman)!

I met the two main lawyers for the Duke boys in San Francisco nearly two weeks ago. They represented the team captain, and believe it or not, the youngest and least experienced of the lawyers was the one who read all of those documents and figured out the DNA didn't match the Duke players but several other people. They forced him to do the cross examination of the DNA expert because he was the only one who had read those thousands of documents which unraveled the mystery and broke open the case. Being young and inexperienced is not necessarily a defect in every case.

I just heard from some of Al's people. Apparently, they read the JFP too. Al said to tell Banner, "PRIMPING ain't easy either, check with the women on this." His camp further says to tell Banner and the Rap community that while they acknowledge "pimping ain't easy, it shold is sleazy."

Ray, I think that Al and/or Jesse called for the players to get jail time if they were convicted. I really believe that parents first then uncles, aunts, cousins, folks in the church, etc. are all responsible for the actions of our children. Children need to know that we care! Talking about it isn’t enough! Just the other day I was in Northpark Mall looking for tennis shoes with my girls and there were several boys grouped together making a lot of noise and whistling at girls passing by. I politely asked them to stop and asked how they would feel if what they were doing was done to their mothers or sisters…three apologized and thanked me for mentioning their actions and two cussed at me and walked off…but I tried. I believe that being raised by my mother has made me a better man and since I have only girls I feel complied to speak up when I see young men doing the right thing and when they are not. No, the Loo is no Eastside but Dr. Olabode sure could sing ‘Happy Day’!!

Wonderful Big Tee. Many of us are afraid to even chastize these knuclkheads these days. One of my friends in the TC Class of 1980 said he was pulling up to a service station to get gas recently when one of those young fools said, "move that damn car so I can go first." He said he just drove on to the next station. We said where is your manhood, you gonna let those boys punk you out. He simply said he had 2 children to finish raising and get through college so passed on that one.

I indeed agree the verbiage may have been a little harsh but it definitely got Al's attention and its high-time someone did. laughter, methinks you may be one of those professional Banner haters that run around Jackson. He and Jesse need to quit charging folks to hold rallies and actually get off into these streets and start helping some folks. They definitely don't speak FOR me

It was more than harsh. It was funny. You know like the pot calling the kettle... Or a pimp calling another pimp a pimp. Banner must have had a bad day before choosing those words. Neither is likely a pimp in actuality, but they operate in the pimp game or often act or pretend to be a pimp. So whers does that leave us and them.

I should clarify that Banner has a right to be angry. I'm not a fan of degrading lyrics, but I'm not a supporting of this idea of "banning" certain words. My wish is that Banner, being that he's a musician/lyricist/poet, could have come up with something a little more expressive than all the "s*** my ****" that was quoted in the article. I mean, any idiot can use that language. If he wants to be taken as an "artist", then he should expand his artistic vocabulary. Also, as a mississippian, I want him to get a little more sophisticated in his insults, since he's representing the state on the national stage. Like I said, 'permed out pimp' was pretty funny. Too bad the rest was just crude and unimaginative. My favorite Sharpton moment ever was his "interview" a few years back on the Daily Show. He didn't show for the interview, so Stephen Colbert pretended to be him, and Jon Stewart interviewed him. it was hilarious.

Queen, et al, Al's people emailed me again saying "they're not sweating at all, because they have already heard about a brotha trying to gain mo' ground by being lo' down, and that's nothing new to them." They further said they're all for the march and will meet y'all half way of the National Mall in D.C. or any dark alley way. I then asked if they really knew these ganasta rappers as well as they thought. Anyway, I'll be on the sidelines looking and praying we have enough black folks left to carry on. I wonder what would the double march be called?

Kate, again I totally agree with you. It makes it hard for his very sound opinion to be heard when he making statements filled with hardcore profanity. I totally agree. I am not excusing that. It would be nice if he would use all the manners Mrs. Crump taught him when he is defending himself. However, things like this happen in the heat of convo. I mean, as a Mississippian it would have done my heart better had he completely humiliated the man in a tactful, dignified manner. You're right on that. Sometimes, as I've learned here, when you bark to hard, the other dog gets the bone because you're too busy barking. Right?

Ironhost's comments about the "million man march" does resemble the misinformation of the lying liars on Fox News. The Center for Remote Sensing at Boston University analyzed photos of the March and discounted the National Park Service estimate of 400,000 attendees. The BU estimate was of 837,000 with a margin of error of plus or minus 20 percent...meaning it could have been as low as 670,000 or as high as One million. Why do THEY hate the truth? .

I'm a fan of Banner's and I agree with him completely. Banning certain words for rappers is ridiculous. Why just rappers? Is it OK for rockers to simulate sex on a record, having orgasims on songs now? Al Sharpton is a media hog who doesn't know when to let it go ... and the hair needs to go. However, with Banner's obvious intelligence and education, he could have outwitted the Rev. Media Hog with words. The foul language wasn't needed.

What intelligence is that? If rapper had intelligence they wouldn't spew the feces and garbage they spew on a daily basis. Not only do rappers not have any soul, the don't have hearts either. Rappers have denigrated the black women more than any racist ever have. Rappers have poisoned our children more than any Klansman or racist ever has. Rappers, by and large, are dumb surrogates for white racists just as black conservatives like Walter Williams, Shelby Steele, Thomas Sowell, Armstrong Williams, Jessie Lewis Peterson and many more are. The latter group is not dumb but hates black folks and are simply on the take for what they can personally gain. If they told the truth about racist white people there positions would be instantly taken away. Not all white people are racists. Many millions of white people have overcome racism. Kamikaze and a few more rappers are exceptions to this surrogate claim, but the majority are not exceptions in my opinion. I'm not talking badly about Al and Jessie anymore. You will never see these southern white boys bad-mouthing Jessie Helms, Strong Thurmond, Trent Lott, James Eastland, Ronald Reagan, Karl Rove, et al, all of which have clear racist legacies. Of course you won't see it, they know they're not supposed to bad mouth people they support or have furthered their goals, aims and desires. The JFP writers will talk about them and so would Tom Head, but not many more. Banner acted like a moron in his comments on Sharpton. No ands and buts about it. I forgive him and hope he will soon see a bigger picture. I can make a strong argument that he did it to impress the white boys who he knows buys his records. Al and Jessie have done many wonderful things for many wonderful causes. They are not mere hustlers as racists as racists and dumb negroes and others like to call them. Sure they get on people's nerves running from place to place. It's almost always for a good reason.

I'm alright Kate. Every now and again, I take it upon myself to tell folks the hard-core truth. Furthermore, it unnerves me to no end, to see southern white men and boys run all over themselves to criticize Ike Brown, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, Frank Melton, et al, and not say a darn thing ever about known white racists and white a__holes of all sorts and types. Yes, I know exactly why this is the case. It's because the past is not dead. The past isn't even the past.

wow Ray, those are harsh words for an entire genre of young black men don't you think? your finger pointing is misguided to say the least. You probably cuss like a sailor when in the privacy of your own home. should your kids throw you out with the bath water too? no. I see nothing wrong with ANY of the language in hip hop today. why? because my parents grew up on the same thing...from Millie Jackson to Willie Nelson. it's just entertainment. this banner guy is just one badexample of how NOT to respond to someone like Al or Jesse. His immaturity got the best of him and now his foot tastes like chicken. I've heard Motley Crew records more vile and promiscuous than most hip hop records. so again I say....a publicity stunt is all this is. no need to get ruffled out of place Ray. just treat it like an old episode of Amos & Andy and relax.

This entire rap thing...blaming HIP HOP for everything is ---get ready --- just another form of control. This is a young, black thing. It's a culture. It's freedom. If the people who run this country didn't b!tch about rap, who else would get the blame. If it were as white as rock and roll, it wouldn't be happening. As I have stated before, where is the blog and the media on blaming rock and roll for the walking tragedy that is Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, Courtney Love, Nicole Richie, Brittany Spears................why is it that rockers are not being brought under the fire for influencing these young white girls for carrying coccaine and using heroine; and being IN AND OUT of jail REGULARLY; and having babies just for the hell of it; being alcoholics by the tender age of 21; passing out in clubs and on stage.... This is an extension of slavery people. It's only happening because it's related the the black experience. Your statement that the past isn't the past is probably the most true statement I've read in this blog. Face it, it boils down to this music BELONGING to black folks, and thus makes it subject to ridicule and blame for everything since in the minds of most white folks WE ARE THE PROBLEM. To that I say LONG LIVE RAP and love live BANNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But ultimately in all his crappy choices and his ridiculous antics -- FRANK IS TRYING TO HELP YOUNG BLACK FOLKS IN THE COMMUNITY. Frank is in it for the money and the power IMHO. I've lived here too long not to know what motivates this guy. so they must follow the same model given your assessment.

Let me put it like this, laughter....Frank has a selfish agenda as well. He may be using this "let me help these kids" as a front for his greed, but still he is working to help these kids (or at least somewhere deep within he has a resemblence of desire to help these kids). Personally I don't think Frank's objective is money. I think his objective is power. Frank wants to OWN this city. He has devised a well thought out plan to control this entire city. But still and all, he has some sort of connection to them...I'm still trying to figure out what and if it's legal, but it's a connection.

Ray, you go all the way from supporting a couple rappers and levelling the playing field with white boos boos, and back all the way left to dogging out 99.9% of YOUR black sons...get over yourself. "Something's are better kept hidden behind the hole in your face." - Grandpaw

Thanks Queen. I call many rappers ignorant because they either don't know how base, vile and hurtful they have been to black folks or they don't care. I aver it much of both. Money is the driving force for almost all of them. Banner is not a test or comparison to Al Sharpton. Al is a talented and brillant person. He proves it all the time in debates with skilled journalists and debaters. So is Jessie. Banner isn't that. Banner isn't even a Chuck D, Common, Mos Def or the likes of other brillant rappers. I agree he's smart, but he's not ready for the skills of Sharpton or Jessie or the likes. Nor does he have a principled position here. The problem I have with many rappers is that they don't know crap about our history of struggling in this country for justice, survival, human respect and dignity, nor do they care. All they care about are the benjamiins for themselves and their circle. Not only will they denigrate the black woman, they will denigrate Sharpton, Jessie, Dr. King, Rosa Park, and the list goes on, to sell records. I haven't wrongly criticized rapper at all. I have tolerated their utter bull for decades just as other intelligent blacks have without calling them out. Had it not been for Dr. King, Jessie, Al, Rosa, Fannie Lou and many more, they wouldn't be able to do this cooning and make money. I demand some responsibilty, respect and change. Now, I'm not dumb enough to get lost fighting rappers and letting the buyers of rap go free of criticism. Nor am I dumb enough to ignore the other problems of racism we still face. Rappers and supporter will rarely mention the problems associated with white racism except to say they are rapping about poverty and conditions in the black community that is caused by a larger power struggle. You won't hear many say a word about white racist politicans or leaders or racist purchasers of their records. They don't want to offend those they know mostly buy their records. This is why I say they're surrogates for white racists just like black concervatives such as John McWhorter. They do it differently but the results are the same. They perpertrate negative stereotypes and images of us as keeping it real, not as any entertainment, with few exceptions. While I might be a jokester, and like to have fun, you want see me denigrating black women, poisoning black males, furthering negative and irreparable stereotypes and perceptions of black folks. Instead you will see me catching them, pointing them out, challenging them, and proving black folks can be funny, loving, compassionate, perceptive, discerning, friendly, engaging, diverse and quite intelligent at the same time.

But still and all, he has some sort of connection to them...I'm still trying to figure out what and if it's legal, but it's a connection. oh that's simple..Jackson is mostly elderly people who are used to sitting on the porch sipping mint julip relaxing. and what's the best way to get them to support you? fear. fear of crime, fear of drugs, fear of thugs(black boys), fear of everthing that's not "right" in Jackson. and It's going to take the kids of these elderly people to change this thinking in them. only then will Cowboy Franky be ousted and sent back to his ranch in Texas. this is why papers like the JFP are important. the youth have a voice now. time to use it. didn't mean to vere off the subject but....

And yes, Queen, I do show that I have sarcasm too. It's good for us. Most of it? Some of it? A little bit of it?

Ray, what planet are you from, exactly? where you dropped off in place of those other coo-koos who left with Hale Bop? I found this quote by you hilarious: I demand some responsibilty, respect and change. I thought I was reading a canned transcript from "M.A.S.H."...hahaha

I think both David Banner and Al Sharpton would do good playing a pimp role on the big screen. They could co-star in a film entitled The Pot Calling The Kettle Black.
