'The Wire' Star

Yeah I Got Stabbed

D.C.'s Not all Roses

"The Wire" star Anwan Glover is acting like getting stabbed is no big deal ... because everyone knows Washington D.C. is not all roses and rose gardens.

We got  Anwan in Maryland Monday ... and he made light of the attack at Cafe Asia Sunday AM.  Glover -- who played Slim Charles on the show -- was blindsided when 2 men started beating him and then he was stabbed.

Glover says D.C. is a deceptive place ... it seems like such a nice place, with The White House and all ... but it's a lot tougher.

Yup! D.C. is a deceptive place. BECAUSE of the White House.

So he gets stabbed like it's another day at the office? Who, what why? Mugged? Did they catch them? Sounds fishy to me.

Sounds like he takes the thug life serious. Can't take him out the ghetto I guess...

No, the truth is the lower class black people (not the middle and upper class ones) act like wild animals. They don't live by a code of ethics or morals. A bunch of degenerate third-world looking black men covered in neck tattoos with pants hanging down showing their underwear to every stranger on the street who doesn't want to see it. They are so sexually perverse they act more like wild animals roaming for sex than men who take care of the family. They curse and use foul language around elderly people and babies. It's like end times behavior. Completely uncivilized. The poor Immigrant mexicans have more morals, they marry their women and work hard for their paychecks. Black men and women in DC are RUINED the and the next generation falls in their degenerate footsteps.

Hmmm ... I live about 125 miles from D.C. I've been there a lot and never got stabbed in a barfight.

I'm just glad he's ok. I love Slim Charles with his deep, scratchy voice.

Further, the foul-mouthed, pants sagging, disrespectful young black men are ruined but the older 50 + aged black men are even worse. The very ones who should set the example are the worst. It's not possible to walk down H Street NE without older black men saying lewd, lascivious things to the young women who are just minding their business trying to get to where they are going. Wearing headphones does not deter them. It's like they have no honor, no discipline and are just carnal, sex motivated zombies who don't think before they speak and act. I've never seen anything like it in my life. This is why much of the black community is in a shambles and will never recover, not as long as the men keep forgetting who they are - MEN - not wild animals.

DC sucks. Lived there twenty years. The museums and tourist areas are cool but other than that very expensive, people are rude.

FUJI HAS MADE COMMENTS ABOUT BLACKS IN DC, OR AS I CALL US BLACK AFRICANS LIVING IN AMERICA. THESE COMMENTS ARE FALSE. WE FORGET THAT WHITE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN TRAILERS DONT REP ALL WHITE PEOPLE. ALL ASIANS DONT KNOW MARTIAL ARTS, ALL BLACK AFRICANS DONT LOVE WATERMELON ETC., AND ON AND ON. ALL RACES HAVE PEOPLE WITHIN THEM THAT ARENT RESPECTFUL, ALL RACES HAVE LEWD PEOPLE. ITS NOT ABOUT COLOR ITS ABOUT CHARACTER. IF YOUR KEVIN LOVE OR LEBRON JAMES OR MAGIC JOHNSON OR LARRY BIRD, SKIN COLOR HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR BASKETBALL ABILITIES NOR WHO YOU ARE OFF THE COURT. BIRD AND MAGIC BOTH HAVE CHECKERED PAST "OFF THE COURT"! LERBON AND LOVE SAME DEAL(HAVENT HEARD BAD OFF THE COURT FOR THEM)! ITS ABOUT CHARACTER. MAGIC AND BIRD "HAD" CHECKERED PAST, MAGIC WITH WOMANIZING AND BIRD WITH FATHERING OF HIS KIDS BUT, TODAY THERE BETTER MEN. MY POINT? RACISM IS ABOUT BOXING ONE SKIN COLOR TOGETHER AND NOT SEEING THE TRUTH!!! WE ALL ARENT SUPPORTERS OF OBAMA'S POLITICS(IM NOT, HAPPY HES 1ST MINORITY PRESIDENT BUT, IM REPUBLICAN, WITH SOME LIBERAL VIEWS)!!! YES, WE ALL DONT AGREE WITH OBAMA'S POLITICS. WE ALL DONT LISTEN TO RAP. WE AND ALL RACES VARY AS INDIVIDUALS. SOON AS WE SEE WE ALL LIVE ON A PLANET NAMED EARTH AND FOOLS KILL AND STAB AND ROB, NOT SKIN COLORS, WERE JUST AS PRIMITIVE AS THE MONKEYS WE THINK WERE SO MUCH MORE INTELLIGENT THAN. LGNM

DC is rough. Just look at the area that surrounds the Washington National's field it is horrible. The monuments and clubs are cool, but come nightfall watch out!!!

It's really not a "DC thing". If you have a nightclub with black men, could be Martha's Vineyard or the moon, there *will* be stabbings.
