What class! Typical. Don't have the common sense or the language to
work it out so you resort to violence. And blacks wonder why they're
stereotyped??? Because of stuff like this. Your race needs to get a clue.
If you don't want to be portrayed as violent, drug dealers, prostititues,
then straighten up your xxxking act! I don't care how you were raised,
rise above that. It's just sick. Learn to be a decent human being FFS.

HOT DOG ON A STICK...Actually, OJ left us a long time ago when he embraced y'all's asses. And tried so hard to fit into your world. So to me OJ don't count. Hip Hop and OJ Simpson is too totally different flippin things so why you would assume I'd be sticking up for OJ's simple ass is beyond me. SO yeah your guess was definitely off on that one. I ain't even sticking up for the ignorance of this broad...cause this was stupid. I mentioned the government..cause if you actually read a newspaper instead of TMZ all day would know the government held senate hearings discussing Hip Hop were a number of Artists spoke on Hip Hops behalf. They won't post that kind of news here so I understand that.

my, my, what truth dacoits you are    

Closing in on 40 and still calling herself a brat and dressing and acting like a teenage ghetto thugette?Hit the waitress from behind with a bottle? Real brave, hood rat. I'm sure you'll be on the docket for years to come. Maybe the court should have her checked for brain dysfunctioning and psychological disorders.

No matter what the race.... A bad attitude plus alcohol = violence.

If this is her second offense, lock her up until her attitude improves. No one should be permitted to inflict violent behavior on anyone else, no matter what they do for a living. Unfortunately, those with $$ can usually buy themselves some altered justice. It shouldn't be permitted.

These things have been going on for years.The only reason we know about it is because she's famous.Blacks and whites have been at each other's throat for years.Some things go un-noticed,some things don't.Punish her for what she's done,but let that be the same for everyone all the time.

JaimeNtexas-the problem is you don't deal with your problems, so the rest of us "white America" as you put it, do. We're still waiting for your community to do anything other than make babies and kill each other. Ya feel me, sista?

I disagree Jaime dear. HIP HOP is everyones problem when its words envoke militant like behavior in young people. People who then spill out into the streets reciting Bubba's rap anthm and pollute cities with crime and drugs and all the other fun things that talentless HIP HOP "artists" like to spew about. Then my tax dollars get to be spent penning up wastes for years if not for life. I'm white, but if I were Korean, Hispanic, Purple or Black it would still be OUR problem.

P.S. Willing people are not exploited. Get over it or repatriate.

"By the way ...White America and the Government. HIP HOP is not your problem...IT'S OURS let us deal with it.
