      As for Jussie clown self I understand he lied but as I recall nobody died or got hurt by his actions so why are people on this thread saying prosecute him to the full extent of the law. Let me guess because he said they screamed “make America great again”.

      Don’t be ignorant to the fact African Americans been getting lied on and lied to by White America.

      Case in point: Emmit Til was murdered

      But it’s life and I’m used to it, racism is not going anyway in my life time. Even the looks people give us on the water is crazy. Oh well guess a black man isn’t suppose to be boating.
      Wrong! Just because a couple of **** cops called you something terrible does not show you what America thought of African Americans. That's bull**** to say so.

      You can't hold America accountable for the actions of a few. I didn't

      I grew up in the projects of North Long Beach and got called honky and white boy by all the African Americans, all of them. I got chased and jumped weekly by groups of blacks. My brother was shot by two African Americans for 2 bucks. Guess what, I don't hold all African Americans accountable for the actions of the people who were racist towards me and my family while growing up.

      What smollett did was wrong on so many levels. You say no one died. If what he said was true that's the kind of **** that gets people angry enough to riot and kill people. He lied and said it was Whites that did this to him. This just adds towards your hate of America how you think of Whites so you bet it pisses off people. You know the people like me that aren't racist because I understand how this kind of behavior impacts everyone's thoughts.

      I suffered a lot of direct racism growing up, probably more then most people. I then spent 23 years in the Army. As a leader I never rewarded or punished based on race. I also spent a great deal of time counseling young Soldiers about racism and gang life and how to get past those things in life.

      Like everyone else smollett needs to be held accountable for his actions just like everyone else. It's already hard enough for people to get along in this world. Making false statements just makes people not trust the really stuff taking place. What he did takes away from efforts to fix the really bad **** happening. It gives the bad people even more bull**** to toss back into the fire. That's the real damage here.

        As the husband of a police officer, I'll stand with the police and against Kaepernick. He was protesting the media hyped police brutality against African Americans, which, in my opinion, the were way over extorting. How many cases have made national news since body cameras were implemented pretty much nationwide? Maybe the officers are telling the truth... I'm not going to say there aren't racist police, but it's not a national epidemic where police are gunning down black people.

        Kaepernick isn't a victim of social injustice, he's a victim of capitalism. He was payed millions of dollars to play a game on TV. I would argue that he got special treatment because he was African American. The NFL fines you if you put some small symbol/number/name on your shoe or if you do the wrong touchdown celebration, but they let him kneel for the anthem the whole season. They allowed it to not get "racist" backlash. They finally had to draw the line on it after their tv ratings and attendance plummeted. He cost them all a lot of money, so they stopped giving him money. That's capitalism.

          I keep hearing the argument that he didn’t hurt anybody. While directly that is true I wondered allowed to my wife how many black people where more solified in their hatred/mistrust of whites and how many white people are now more solified in their hatred/mistrust of black people? That’s the damage these type of things cause. It impacts society one tiny cut at a time. To say he didn’t hurt anybody is simply not true.

            Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson agrees with your statement. It's the professional way of calling someone a D-bag.

            That being said, I would gladly invite anyone on this board who shares the same love of boating (no matter your race, gender, or sexual orientation) onto my boat for a weekend….as long as you don’t act like a D-bag. Sorry, no surfing either.

              What this idiot did was file a false police report. It's against the law so yes he should face the applicable punishment. For you to add the commentary is really weak. Emmit Til? What in the hell does that have to do with this? Enjoy your boat!!

                        Yikes.


                        We don’t all think this way.

                        I will say if you think racism is purely white against black, you’re an idiot.

                          Just keep relying on the media to focus on the truth the media and those who fund it will spin facts into fiction just to keep you interested in their agenda.

                            Its kind of like this...a few bad apples on top of a bushel...not all the apples are bad, but the bad get the most attention. Ruins it for everybody. I don't know about locking the thread, but people should refrain from name calling on the MasterCraft forum, we are better than this, people come from different backgrounds, many social injustices have occurred, those are the facts, hopefully it goes with two steps forward and one step back, once in a while.

                                That’s not what I think at all. But I believe blacks are the most hated group in America.
