May I? I can't read no more. You all are twisted. Umm, who cares whether or not someone paid their taxes and might go to jail for it? (All liers and cheaters need not answer). The answer: Racist white people who are glad to see a rich black man go down. It is as simple as that. And that is what has made this a racist issue. The rich and white made the rules. ( you know: how to get away with not paying taxes, you are innocent until proven guilty, you have to be proven guilty beyond a resonable doubt! LOL> See that's where you messed up. OJ got a real trial, that's why he was not found guilty. (He got a rich "white mans" trial. ) This stuff has been going on for hundreds of years. But when the "justice system" works for a black man. All hell breaks lose. And as far as Wesley Snipes which is the subject here. Who cares? Oh, that's right YOU!

Can't there ever be a black man involved in anything without the race card being played? what's race got to do with being a cheat and a thief?

That is so funny. You forgot to pose him next to the BIG OLD GUY sharing his cell who's looking for his next bitch.........ha ha............lol.

When he gets out of prison he will need to get some plastic surgery to get his rear end exit back to the same size it was before he got there. Ouch !!! Then he will be sorry he didn't pay his taxes. What a collasal FOOL. He will be wishing he had that $$ while in prison to " pay for protection " when all those horney guys come looking to get "some " LMAO.................pay back is a bitch.

I honestly don't care WHO puts him in jail.........it could be on the MOON for goodness sakes. Just put him behind bars. This guy has some "gold ones" to pull a stunt like this. You know darn good and well if us "common folk" pulled this crap, there would be no rock big enough for us to hide under cos the IRS would find our happy rear-ends and put us behind bars.

Man do I hear racial overtones in your comments. Can't seem to let go huh? Get over it William Prescott...I sense your sarcasm is littered with indirect resentment at the "rich man's club" because they allowed for these brother's to escape "justice" in your opinion...right? Well wake up to the reality of America. For hundreds of years white men in this country have been getting away with murder and other heinous offenses because of their wealth and because of the color of their skin...sometimes in conjunction with each other and other times not. You white people kill me...two brothers get a "get out of jail free pass" and you guys get all up in arms like it's an epidemic...come on man...you and I both know that this simply is an aberration! Once and for all Michael got off because he had great lawyers and the money to pay them...also because the prosecution had holes all throughout their case with a sleazy gold digging mother, who tried unsucessful many times to pimp her son to any celebrity she could find. OJ got off because firstly he was OJ (celebrity does have it's perks) , Johnnie Cochran (God Bless The Dead) and an excellent defense team of first rate lawyers, coupled with shoddy police work and inept prosecutors...end of story!!!

IMO, those photos are racist, especially the ball and chain one. My recommendation is that you remove them very quickly, NOT FUNNY.

To #2-CindiCat,
Yeah, you got a good point there--if we "common folks" don't pay our taxes in a couple of year's time, guess what? We'd be looking at our accountants/attorneys from an iron bar hotel.

And to #1-Wise old owl,
Snipes is a collasal fool, not to mention he's arrogant and cocky!! I mean, how long did he think he could get away with not paying taxes? It's all a matter of time before Uncle Sam catches up to him-for real!

And, lastly to #6-monolisa13,
Lighten up! There's nothing racist, slanderous or even derogatory about those photos. Those pix just represent the earliest and lasted in fashion for the incarcerated, that's all. My preference is the orange jump suit. Anyone else agree?
