ILMAO....You gotta love these blogs. They give cowardice people the opportunity to sit in their houses and trailers and anonymous make racist comments. Be a big person; go to the next black person you see on the street or that you work next to and make the same comment....lol

I can't say I am sorry Ike is dead but lighten up people! No call for wishing ill on the man. I am sure you wouldn't want that wished on you if you passed.

Can't blame Tina for not saying anything though. Its probably best that she doesn't.

And to #6, a wife beater is a wife beater. Doesn't matter what race he is. No call for the racial slurs.

The first time I heard Tina Turner, she was still with Ike. They played on the front steps of the Kappa Alpha house at Mississippi State University. Through the years, I had the privilege of attending a few more of her concerts. For one of the concerts, in the early years after leaving Ike, she appeard on a make-shift stage in a banquet room at a Holiday Inn in Memphis. She is always spectacular.

#32, that comment about wanting Britney dead is uncalled for. You should be ashamed.
