NFL Star Arrested: 'White Boys Ganging Up on Me'

6/29/2010 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0629_cedric_benson_EXDMugCincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson turned himself into police today -- after being accused of socking a bouncer in the face at an AustinTexas bar back in May.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Benson got into a fight with an unknown subject at Annie's West bar at 1:50 AM on May 30. Cops say Benson was spitting blood from his injured lip.

The report continues ... bar employees tried to calm Benson down -- and the NFL star replied, "I don't give a f*ck."

Benson was asked to leave the bar ... but refused ... and had to be physically escorted out by security.

Once outside, Benson allegedly told a bystander, "All these white boys are ganging up on me and kicking me out."

But according to the report, one bouncer heard Benson make the statement and replied, "I'm going to take time out of my busy job to kick you out?"

Benson then allegedly punched the bouncer in the face ... and knocked the bouncer back.

Bystanders separated the men -- and cops arrived shortly after.

Benson was charged with assault with injury. Bond was set at $5,000.

Hey Cedric, over 70% of blacks are born out of wedlock, is that the fault of white people too? Cedric Benson is a racist against white people.

Making all that money, famous as hell, and think that the law enforcement is not going to do their job, when you act a fool. You became a pro athlete to make a living for yourself. Not to make a living, plus get into trouble, cause you think you are bad and can do whatever you want. You embarrassing yourself, your family and team. Black, white, color is not the issue here. It is the behavior! Grow up!

Cut this knucklehead from the NFL. If this was a white guy making a racist comment he would be hounded the rest of his career as a racist. This guys comment will be forgotten shortly. If TMZ did not report this I would have never heard of it.



If it was a white guy it would have made the major media and he would be forced to make an apology. Lets see if this a**hole apologizes. In my opinion whites are taught to be accepting and other races are taught to stick together. I worked at a middle school and noticed that the majority of whites would walk around and try yo socialize while the "minorities" seem to only associate with their own race. The problem has to stop, and it is not white people who are the problem anymore...

Maybe they kicked your butt because you were being a jerk. Not because you were black. Playing the race card really makes YOU look racist.

Quit with the racism BS. It's programmed by mother nature. In your subconscious mind the first thing you see is that a person looks different than you. He is not like you. Then your conscious mind takes over and starts to judge based on whatever TV shows youve watched. There is no human on earth that can truthfully say that he did'nt notice that the person he was talking to was black or the person he was talking to was white. IF you got robbed by someone and were asked to describe the suspect, you wouldn't say "i was robbed by a person". You would first describe the color of their skin. "it was a black guy" or "it was a white guy". Get over it, it's human nature to notice differences and not similarities.

And thats the truth    

27. "Boy" "colored" "moron" "chicken" get a life! Seriously... and we wonder why ignorance will continually perpetuate itself... we have dumb people like you wondering the earth! He was probably drunk and what do most people do when they're drunk? Ding Ding Ding, you're right! "Act" a fool. However, these insane stereotypes and comments need to stop. F'n douche bags!!!

***********************************************************************



When a person is drunk, they do not have any inhibitions. They tend to "tell the truth" if you will. This is what happened to Mel Gibson and the Jewish comment. You are speaking of stereotypes, and that is exactly what he is doing but that is fine because he is "drunk". It sounds to me as if he were a little hateful against whitey. Now if a white man had gone into a bar, started trouble, was thrown out and said negative things about black people, the ACLU would be all over that like white on rice ...... Oh yeah, I had forgotten, the only race that are racists, are white......

Ah yes. You can say "white boys gangin' up on me" but you can't say "black boys ganging up on me". Gotta love the land of equality.
