    Except for Bruno Mars, the halftime show was totally forgettable. I have no
    idea if there was a political agenda being presented. If there was, it
    completely went over my head. Any controversy seems very much contrived.

    As much as I’m not as crazy as my conservative & bleeding heart Libs are,
    The formation, their outfits do strangely seem familiar with the Black

    And there is a reason why White Americans are in fear of dying out, it is
    because on a global scale, White people, generally European & European
    decedents are becoming a minority.

    Hear that everyone, we’re all just confused, the black panthers are all
    about sunshine, rainbows, puppies and helping. Thank goodness the black man
    affectionately dubbed “killer” was here to explain to us dumb whities, I
    guess “black power” just means “hello friend” right?

  • Orange County Antifascist 4 years ago

    Love how Killer Mike uses air quotes around Socialist when describing the
    Black Panthers when they were literally thousands of times more socialist
    than he or his bourgeois shill candidate Bernie Sanders could ever dream of
    being. They were a legitimate revolutionary Marxist group that stood for
    the liberation of all oppressed peoples of the world. It’s surprising that
    these middle of the road, capitalist, liberal commentators embrace their
    image so flagrantly when they were literally against the forms of
    oppression they are okay with appeasing as long as they get a politician in
    a meaningless office with slightly less abhorrent views than the other

    No one should have pride nor shame in who they are. White, Black, Gay,
    Straight. These are all factors you can’t control, so reasonable members of
    society ignore those factors and judge people on who they are, not what
    they are. If you want to kill racism and bigotry you have to understand

  • Nestor Gonzalez 4 years ago

    Being racist is one thing, discrimination is another deal all together. I
    think people automatically associate Racist tendencies with Outright
    Discrimination. I bet there were plenty of racist whites who supported
    Equal rights on the basis of being morally right under the law, but
    wouldn’t be inviting a black neighbor over for dinner. Systematic
    Discrimination is a huge problem that still exist in America. We can change
    that, but to change peoples minds by force, would be immoral within itself.

  • hattorihanzo 4 years ago

    the black panther party represents the rise and fall of marxism in the
    states really. it’s damn shame, no other group was able to withhold that
    ideology in the country. a country doesn’t necessarily need to be a
    socialist, marxist state, but it’s healthy with a true marxist movement for
    the people’s sake. to push governments and whatnot

    It was The Super Bowl during fucking black history month… news flash,
    there’s a lot of black people who watch and play football. If there was
    ever an appropriate time and place for Beyoncé’s performance, it was at The
    Super Bowl, during black history month, in the year 2016.

  • The Moral Crusader 4 years ago

    Bill Maher and rich white liberals should move out of their lilly white
    gated community and move into majority black neighborhoods if they’re so
    down with the cause of black supremacy and “fuck da white man”. I’m sure
    they’ll be treated very nicely.

  • FearlessAgainstStupidity 4 years ago

    Cops killing black people is not a problem. Black people need to stop
    killing each other. Thats a song I want to see. And stop committing the
    most crime in America. You left Africa but you are still behaving like
    tribal warlords.

  • Olmex OD 4 years ago

    Black panthers have never tied a white person to a pickup truck and dragged
    them to death. BP have never lynched a white person. BP have never hung a
    white person and castrated them and pickled the body parts. BP have never
    burnt crosses on white people’s lawns. There were white and Asian members
    of BP, unlike the KKK. The comparison is stupid and totally false. Nothing
    blacks have done in America comes close to the terrorism whites put on them
    for over 400 yrs. Racist whites hated MLK and blew his brains out, and that
    is what led to the formation of BPs.

    Then Gay Edgar Hoover waged war on the BPs and killed most of the leaders
    and destroyed the movement. Then the CIA brings in drugs from Colombia and
    recruits black informants who were heading to jail, to sell them in the
    black community. With MLK dead, BPs destroyed, NOI destroyed, there was a
    vacuum in institutions that engaged black men positively. When you add
    drugs and a lack of jobs to the pot, you get present day Chicago.

    Basically, the white elites did to the black community in America, what
    they did to Iraqis… which led to ISIS. For us it led to Crips, Bloods,
    GDs, etc.

  • gerard bain 4 years ago

    Conservative American caucasians are threatened by any public display of
    black pride. They prefer to have self deprecating liars tell people of
    recent african ancestry that everything that happens to them is because of
    their “corrosive culture” and the best way to get ahead is to try to act as
    white as possible.

    oh wait? does that only apply to rap music and dreadlocks…?

    What did he say about the “old Michael Jackson nose”? Seriously? You
    fucking retarded ugly fool. I am a huge Michael Jackson fan and I am sick
    to death of “jokes” about Michael’s face. That includes you too Bill. But
    really “Killer Mike”? You are ugly as sin. You sound totally illiterate.
    Your name is a joke. YOU my friend would not be good enough to stand in a
    room with Michael Jackson. Michael had several nose jobs (not 100 like the
    media and fools say) and a cleft put in his chin. He had a nose job for the
    same reason everybody has a nose job. He hated his nose. He didn’t hate his
    race. He hated his nose. If you were made fun of during your childhood
    about something and then you grew up and had a LOT OF MONEY you would do
    something about it. He did. He also suffered from a disorder where when he
    looked in the mirror he didn’t see what everybody else saw — which was a
    very beautiful face. You should have compassion for that.

    When you Killer Mike have the same beauty, talent and heart that Michael
    Jackson possessed then come here and debate with me. In the meantime SHUT

    I dont like Beyonce’s music, I dont like her as a “musician”, I think her
    lyrics are disgusting, childish, narcissistic, uninteresting, shallow and
    colorless despite the fact that she has a great singing voice, BUT, I above
    all that I think she has the right to do as she pleases given her
    opportunities. If you do not like it, the remote control has an on/off
    button that comes in handy. Same thing applies to all the other “musicians”
    like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z, Drake, etc.

    I don’t understand why other white people are so offended by things like
    #BlackLivesMatter – why is that so upsetting to you? I get it, why don’t
    you get it? Turning every fight for black empowerment into “that’s
    anti-everyone-else” is ridiculous… it’s like if I say you need bread for
    a cheese sandwich, you say “ARE YOU SAYING I DON’T NEED CHEESE???”. Calm
    yourselves. The statement “Black Lives Matter” does NOT in any way mean the
    same thing as “White Lives Don’t Matter” or “White People Don’t Have
    Problems”!! It means that black lives matter! What on earth is so offensive
    about that!!! Starting to become ashamed to be white which the outpouring
    of WHITE STUPID on the internet at the moment.

    The reason white people are so scared is because they are scared of losing

    they are so paranoid.

    Why is it when we as black people say we’re pro black it automatically

    Jewish it will not scare white people, if Italians say they’re pro Italian
    doesn’t scare white people, If Japanese people say they’re pro Japanese it
    doesn’t scare white people, so why when black people do it, it scares white
    people so much, maybe because white people know how bad they’ve treated
    black people in this country that we are looking to pay them back, but
    we’re not so stop being afraid of us when we celebrate ourselves.

  • Julian Bluefeather 4 years ago

    Beyoncé is saying that she is proud of her heritage. And if you’re Italian
    then you can be proud of that. or Polish. or Danish. “White” is different
    because it is such a large spectrum of diiferent cultures, and it is the
    MAJORITY. It’s like saying I’m proud to be like everyone except for a few
    people. If you’re white then your family has always celebrated belonging to
    a certain ethnicity of immigrints. Nobody was ever about “White Pride”
    except for the KKK, and even then, they hated Catholics, Jews, Immigrints,

    The problem was that Beyonce’s outfit looked as if she were carrying two

    rights are there to protect white people only. We all know that white
    people shuld be allowed to go anywhere with a loaded AR-15, but a black man
    holding a BB gun is unacceptable and he should be killed – not to mention
    black 12 year old kids with “Air-soft” toy guns.
