No Jail for DMX ... This Week

6/8/2009 1:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DMXIt can no longer be said that not a week goes by without DMX being sent to jail.

A judge has decided not to send the oft-troubled rapper to jail after he pled guilty to felony attempted aggravated assault a few weeks back. X was accused of verbally threatening guards at Tent City back in February.

Instead, he got 18 months probation, fees and fines, and credit for time served.

Statistically speaking, X will end up back behind bars sometime in July -- at the latest.

When I see the gangstas that have committed felonies get off with a slap on the wrist it makes me want to puke. During the past twenty years, I have seen nothing but "reverse" prejudice - the blacks scream racism every time they get in trouble. Ever heard of, maybe you're guilty? Ever think that the jails are full of black people because THEY DO THE CRIME? I'm sick and tired of it. I don't "own" anybody anything just because I'm white. I don't commit crimes. I don't run in a gang. I have never once owned an African slave. Until Black America understands that most of us are not against them, that they are destroying their own culture by acting like idiots.

Another thing: For the citizens of America... if you are truly proud of being an American, but proud of your heritage as well, perhaps you should consider calling yourselves American first... as in American-African or American-Native. If you're an American, that identification needs to come first. And if you ACT like Americans, perhaps you won't go to jail for stupid crimes.

David,you said DMX is a child of GOD? What have you been smoking,dude. This is the same guy that calls himself the son of the devil and boast he will rape you in his lyric,FOOL.. This guy is disgusting and an embarrassment to black people.Why do black people support these guys that degrade and stereotype black folk. DMX should have been flushed down the toilet a long time ago.....he's PATHETIC and so are those that support this clown.
