Rampage Can Talk White, But Is He Right?

11/28/2007 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UFC brawler Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has never been afraid to go on the attack. And when the king of the octagon learned that NFL star Sean Taylor died from a gunshot to the leg on the Monday, Rampage went off.


"Shot in the leg and died," he asked our cameraman. "Where the hell was the ambulance? Flavor Flav was real when he said 911 was a joke."

Then, just like a pre-skankified Flav would have done, Rampage got racial. "Black folks, when you get in trouble [and you] call 911, please sound white when you call ... We all sound white when we need to."

Tough words from a tough man.

Anyone else care to point out that he was AIR LIFTED to Jackson Memorial Hospital? If anyone should pull the discrimination card, it should be the EMTs that have to listen to this crud whenever someone famous dies.

Come on people, its 2007, can you really even PLAY THE RACE CARD ANYMORE?!

If anyone does, frickin Rev. Al Sharpton comes down on his high horse, we all know that!

In fact, I'm surprised he hasnt come out with a statement about this tragic death!!

MAYBE just stop sounding like someone who never heard another person speak correct English. White kids these days speak poorly too, but why is it that such a huge amount of blacks feel that it's okay or cool to speak so poorly. English is taugt in every school in this country. If you want to thumb your nose at it and speak some uneducated rapper's version of it, then the only person you're harming is yourself. 'Dis shi jus don go down in da real worl..ya know wha um sayin???'

What a stupid, ignorant, idiot Rampage is---that is the perfect name for him. What a joke he is. Some blacks make everything about race----they disgrace their own race when they do. Not every ambulance can save everyone---by the way idiot, his girlfriend is white, and she is the one who called 911---how stupid can you be? And if Rampage finds out the shooter is black, is he going to blame that on the white population also? A lot of whites don't make it after being shot, idiot.

concerned black man    

wow, i am a black man in America and i understand what some of you are saying about the fact that the bullet hit an artery. what puzzles me is that you guys are missing a valid point here, no one is "playing the race card", i think that the rampage dude did not get the fact that the bullet hit Mr. Taylor's artery. also, it is a known fact that "some" police and other human services take their time getting to certain urban areas. i grew up in what they call the projects and i have seen first-hand how that works. i now am a therapist and i work with at-risk youth in my local area. racism is reality, i dont talk about it very much because it starts to get redundant. just try to understand where folks are coming from and we will all be fine. and oh yea, what exactly is "ape head"??? i saw someone post that earlier...unreal.

Rampage needs to take an anatomy class, you get shot in the leg and your femoral artery gets hit you have a good chance of dying, no matter how fast 911 gets there.

Rampage, genius that you are, shut the piehole or I'll have Vanderlei make you his b*tch again for the third time. You and Shawn are (were) just primitive thugs.

how dumb    

To #10 Yoman: Got a newsflash for you.... it isn't your RACE that gets you mistreated. Its the TATTOOS. Tattoos can make people look very trashy, dirty and like a criminal. THIS is why you get disrespect... you probably look like a hoodlum.

No disrespect to tattoos... I have some.. .just not all over my arms, face and neck like some people!

Opinionated... Highly    

ACTUALLY - 911 operators will probably react quicker if the caller IS black. Black people sue WAY faster than white folks.
