Nappy Roots Rapper

Violent Cops Were RACIST

... And I'll Probably SUE!!!

4/25/2013 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-Nappy Roots rapper R. Prophet says he was the victim of a RACIST BEATDOWN ... and tells TMZ he's thinking about suing the hell out of the cops who tased him earlier this week.

Prophet just called in to "TMZ Live" ... and says he feels it was "definitely racial profiling" when cops in Kentucky approached a car he was riding in this weekend ... and proceeded to beat the crap out of him.

The rapper says the driver of his car was arrested for DUI at a police checkpoint that night  ... and was taken to a nearby police station.

Prophet says he was left in the car ... and while he was trying to figure out how to get home, an officer approached the parked vehicle and demanded the rapper step outside.

"[The officer] said , 'Step out of the car sir,' ... so I stepped out of the car. Next thing I know I was getting handcuffed ... and the officer pulls out ... his little electrocuting gun, they call it a taser or whatever."

The rapper tells TMZ he was beaten mercilessly for no reason.

Prophet says he had been drinking that night ... but insists he didn't do anything wrong at any  point in the evening.

Cops tell a different story ... saying the rapper was highly intoxicated, walked directly into traffic and was a danger to himself and others.

Either way, Prophet says he plans to unleash a legal nightmare on the cops ... right after he clears his name with the judge.

The means does not justify the end here. There is no reason this young man should be this battered over being a passenger in another vehicle where the driver is intoxicated. Even if this young man got mouthy, and he says he did not, but if HE did, there is not just cause to injure him to this degree. The police department is trained to avoid assault or cause injury, where is their code of ethics and training if he is so severely beaten?

Africa for the Africans, Asia for the Asians, White countries for everyone?
Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and ONLY into White countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY White country and ONLY White countries to "assimilate," i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country and ONLY into Black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I'm not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane Black man to notice this and what kind of psycho Black man wouldn't object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

I think this dumbass can't remember what went on at all because he was so drunk, and probably on drugs. I think there is a lot more to the story than some cops pulled him out of the car and beat and tasered him.
