I aint gonna front…I laughed when I saw this BUT I’m mixed…yeah…Kanye can be mad lopsisded with his views…mad egotistical and on some ol’ entitlement bs…BUT I’ve always had a lil salty taste for Mencia…..remember how Chappelle said part of his departure was because that one white guy in the writing meetings laughed a lil too hard at the Black joke ideas? Well I’ve seen Mencias show…he makes fun of Blacks and Mexicans with a passion! And I guess cause he’s Mex..hes got no res about saying nigga like erday…well when he does these Mexican/Black jokes and skits the white people laugh a lil too hard for me…and he is mad unapologetic bout that…yeah we should be able to make fun of ourselves (like I aint on some Cosby shit…I’m a retired comic myself) just something about Mencia just rubs me a lil….ehhh…
(I) ^^ i dont think it was funny, and i did have a problem with this guy saying nigga a lil to freely. I could see if it was in conversation Like ” yea nigga I did yada yada yada”, but he used it in the chorus I’m not sure he can get that, who gave him a pass. And that brings up another topic, what gives other ethnicities the right to use the words, is it more to do with race, or where you grew up? ex. a mexican kid who grew up in the slums of any ghetto USA does he have the right…not sure, but FAT JOE from P.R and I have no problem with him using it anyway just some food for thought.
OK FIRST OFF I HATE THIS CARLOS MENCIA HE IS JUST NOT FUNNY WITH HIS DUH DUH DUH. YEA COOL MAN ACT LIKE A RETARD YOU ARE THE ONE COMDEY CENTRAL PICKED TO REPLACE CHAPPELE SHOW WITH SOME RETARD JOKE WE ALL DID WHEN WE WERE 6????
BUT I ACTUALLY CAUGHT THIS ON TV THE OTHER DAY IWHILE I WAS TWISTING SOMETHING UP AND I GOT TO ADMIT THIS SHIT WAS FUNNY AS FUCK ATLEAST I THOUGH, YEA HIM SAYING NIGGER SO MANY TIMES WAS QUITE UNECESSARY
( BY THE WAY WHY DO SO MANY SPANISH PEOPLE THINK ITS ALL GOOD FOR THEM TO USE THE WORD, I MEAN I UNDERSTAND YOU FACE SIMLIAR PROFILING AND SHIT NOW BUT THAT DOES NOT GIVE YOU A PASS TO SAY IT )
I AGREE REGGAETONSLASHER – GOD DAMN I MISS DAVE COME BACK BABY I NEED SOME MORE WORK HOW ELSE CAN A CRACKHEAD EAT, I NEED DAVE TO HOOK ME UP WITH MORE GUEST APPERANCES ON FEAR FACTOR AND MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND SHIT
damn I envy you bastards, it gotta be good to be self employed…I’m working on it I believe theres and avenue in hiphop thats hasnt been tapped into yet or exploited, i feel like quiting but at least theres plenty of eye candy up in here.
You know, it’s funny when talking about Latin/Hispanic community using the N-word, along with other ethnicities. But lets just focus on the issue at hand which is Hispanics using the N word. We as Black people don’t really have a gripe as a whole about Hispanics saying Nigga. I think we just don’t allow CERTAIN Hispanic nationalities to get away with it. Why? Because some Hispanic cultures are closely tied to African roots and the others aren’t. For instance:
Who Can/Can’t Say the N Bomb?
Puerto Ricans: Can
El Savadorians: Can’t
Remember when J. Lo did the song with Ja Rule and white Amerikkka went ballistic when she said it? I really didn’t see the big deal because most of us know that she’s a PR from the BX and probably been saying nigga for a very long time. I’m talkin’ about before being a Fly Girl dancing on In Living Color. Then you have other Black people who might not have been exposed to other cultures growing up because they live in a predominately Black city (i.e. Baltimore). Those Blacks might take offense to it as well.
I haven’t watched the Mencia skit that was posted but I can tell you that, a.) Mexicans haven’t been granted the N pass, and b.) dude is madd corny to me anyway.
But on a lighter note, I think the George Lopez stand-up on Comedy Central was hilarious. I watched it a few times and had a chick who I was dating at the time (who happens to be Niquagrian) copped the dvd.
Man, I want to start banning colleges and universities. All 2 degrees got me was a job where you can take a piss when you want to. When I was working in a factory it wasn’t that easy. That’s the only benefit I see in getting a college education. Everything else that’s of any relevance you can learn yourself at the library or buying a book.
yea good book, the majority of millionaires dont have a college degree, and some never graduated highshool. simply put as he states in the book, the difference between the rich and the poor is BALLZ. (RISK TAKERS).
on topic who the fuck is aries sspears to be handing out ghetto passes…
and if something doesnt sit well with about mencia it probably cuz he is an atheist…BTW did u peep the diss he shot at chappelle?
I personally believe they condition us to think college is important so they can make money off of us. Think about it… Do you think they don’t know that I could’ve went to a trade school for a year or two and owned my own business by the age of 23, or would they rather prefer me to become a student and owe the government 30-$50,000 after getting my all important degree(s)? Why do you think so many schools are labeled “State” Universities? Dirty shame… Dirty game.
HONESTLY JUST THINK THE WORD NEEDS TO REMOVED FROM EVERYONES MOUTH BLACKS INCLUDED CAUSE ALL THAT DOES IS MAKE EVERYONE “THINK” ITS NOT AS BIG A DEAL AS IT IS AND THERE IS NO WAY FOR THEM TO UNDERSTAND UNLESS YOU FELT THAT HATE THROWN YOUR WAY
Thats BULL SH*T. I know what school you went to and it was only 20% blacks. The rules have changed. Competition has gotten more fierce. a bacholrs is the equivilent to a highschool diploma in the 70’s. You need more than that to guantee a good job these days. A peace of paper is just whats it is…. a peice of paper.
fuck college, i got a BA and it was one of the requirement for this job but the fuckas don’t even check if you really have it coz the dude in the office next to mine doesn’t even have an associates but they ain’t even check his references
You saying what I said was bullcrap? It sounded like you agreed? I agree with my man (no homo) above who mentioned the importance of taking risks. Man people need to be enlightened to what’s going on around us. How many people do you know with Bachelors degrees that can’t find a job, or are working for like 25-30,000 stacks a year? Man, you can get that WITHOUT all the agony of going through school. So, at that point, not only are you getting killed by taxes (especially if you don’t have kids), but you gotta pay the gov’t even MORE money because you gotta pay back them loans. Like I said, we need to wake up and smell the cheeba.
why do we have to ‘own’ some shameful thing (The n-word)? If we stop using it, i bet you fifty, sixty years hence, its gonna die out. Lets give our great grand kids a life without this stigma.
A good, simple new years resolution could be: i’m not gonna call a brotha the n-word anymore.
I think Mencia is just a pail chappel clone anyway. It pisses me off that he is using the N word like he’s Black or something, how well would that go over if kanye referred to him and his kind as WET BACKS Wall Jumpers, Taco Vendors or Spics. Black Folks need to get some backbone and not stand for this bullshit.
Is he legally here in the US? Somebody check his green card.
Man, I want to start banning colleges and universities. All 2 degrees got me was a job where you can take a piss when you want to. When I was working in a factory it wasnâ€™t that easy. Thatâ€™s the only benefit I see in getting a college education. Everything else thatâ€™s of any relevance you can learn yourself at the library or buying a book.
i definitly agree. i’m a college drop out, and i self educated myself and learned what i needed to to be successful. now i’m gonna be 23 on monday, and i already have my own business. i would’ve been making the average 30k/yr if i didn’t take the road that i knew. although, college can be a great tool if you have your mind set on what you want to be and the drive to get there. the worst thing you can do is go to college and assuming you will learn what you want to be based on the options of classes they offer. at least that was my excuse when dropping out and i did just fine. and since you guys have mentioned books, 48 laws of power is a great fucking book.
College, my friends… is a filter. Yes, intially it was implemented to allow people who wanted to seek higher education a chance to broaden their studies. But as time went on, the population grew and jobs became more scarce. So what better way to determine who can have what job, and who can’t? A degree. What does a degree really mean? It means that you have completed all the General Education requirements along with your core studies and concentration. Does it mean you’re qualified for the job you’re applying for? No. I’m a self-proclaimed cheater and breezed through Accouting I and II for my major. Am I good with balance sheets? Hell no. But there are quite a few people who I know that are good with numbers and could be a CPA, yet wouldn’t get hired because they don’t have a degree. See, the less jobs there are available, the more accolades you need under your belt to be in that position. And lets not talk about the “genius” idea of the government to milk you for every last dollar in tuition costs. This might sound racist but a Black guy who went to Harvard is probably smarter than a lot others on the campus simply because we know he had to go through hell and high water to get there. It’s not like being accepted to Morgan State (sorry, but you knew HBCUs had to take a jab in this). Meanwhile, people like George Bush went to Yale and was accepted simply because his father was the president. It OBVIOUSLY had nothing to do with his intelligence. Why would the government tell you that you can take out a small business loan and become entreprenuer? Do you know how much money they would lose in college turnover rates? College these days have become more or less a new status. Think about it fellas. Most Black chicks these days will ask you did you go to college probably 15 minutes into the conversation when you first meet her. Why? Because we have manifested the idealism that college makes you smarter and more acceptable to society. Now, don’t get me wrong. Our ancestors fought long and hard to see that a higher education would be available for all Blacks to take advantage of. But don’t let college take advantage of you. Your degree should be used as your back-up, not on the forefront of creating a foundation and stability for yourself. If you get a degree in Marketing but decide to become an actor, then great. Because if you suck at acting and it doesn’t workout then at least you know you can get hired SOMEWHERE and provide for yourself. My hat goes off to those who took advantage of trade schools and made their own path instead of following someone else’s. If you want to make it in life, HAVE A PLAN. If college involve those plans, great. Because you can’t just walk in hospital and become a doctor. But if your plans doesn’t involve school, then create your own path.
nothing like some early morning pollying on some real topics to sharpen the mellon. .but on another note the weather is changing so now satans daughters are going to be dressing more provocative. warning! traps come packaged in beautiful boxes.
College gives more that a degree in something…
it grants you a broader perspective when approaching whatever aspects of life you get faced with. thats why with a true college degree in any field, you can effectively switch careers and get a post grad in whatever you chose.
Nobody should go around dissing a college education anyday.
I don’t plan to, but it’s some schiesters out there who I might need to con in order to get what I want out of the situation. In order to beat someone at their own game you have to know how to play it. @ reggaetonslasher
I agree you cant be a lamb living amongst wolves, and when your humble, you get stepped on, but the more you delve into that conniving character, the more the line of morality, and immorality gets blurred
reggaeton, 48 laws gives alot two instences of every law. not to sound conceited, but most of the shit in that book, i knew, just the laws. but the stories are amazing. to hear how people got there way in and out of certain situations, is amazing. everybody has alternative motives, but the book shows you how you can achieve those motivations, or get screwed in the pursuit of them.
I agree. I bet P. Diddy read that book everyday. A co-worker here owns that book and I skimmed through it. It didn’t seem that bad. I think it really depends on the individual and who you’re dealing with. When I went on interviews and had someone white as the interviewer, I know damn well I reached in the bag of tricks to get them see a certain “side” of me. As opposed when I was interviewed by someone Black (on a corporate level) who I deemed as a down-to-earth person where I could be myself. But that’s what happens when we don’t own enough businesses. We have to adopt their mentality in order to survive. But I’ve been able to balance and know when to use it, but never abuse it.
That’s what’s up chief. If you on the East coast I might need to get at you. I know little to nothing about property and I need some advice. Also, have you read his other book Art of Seduction? If that book really works, I know he was probably pokin’ everything! Lol.
well i’ll tell you this marco. i went on a hiring campaign a few months back. and the best feeling in the world is looking at the application of someone who to to Stern @NYU, the place i aspired to be when i was younger, and knowing, that i will never hire them based on there school. not to say that person won’t go on to be successful, but when i look at applications, i see people who spent there lives in school, studying marketing or psychology, got a bachelors, and apply for to me for a job, i turn them down. to me, they’re worse than someone who has been to jail. if you spend 4-5 years of your life, studying, learning all about different stuff, and come to me with no real working experience, just the knowledge of everything but what you’ll be using with me, thats fucking useless. i look for someone with street smarts, who may or may not have went to college, but someone who knows life. who knows how to deal with people, everything else can be taught. and people spend there whole fuckin youth learning shit that doesn’t apply to them in life all to end up in a situation where you get a job just to pay the loans and bills, and you never get any higher. it bothers me so much because there are so many talented people out there with the ability to be something more but they get sucked in to “how it should be done”. luckily, i had someone show me “how it can be done”.
D. Billz. nah, i bought the art of seduction, and ended up givin it to the girl i was on vacation with. seemed to be more for women, but then again, i didn’t give it too much of a chance. and my email is email@example.com. i have no problem giving advice, i love to show other young people that money is sitting there waiting for us to make it, but we let others steal it from us.
i don’t know AGeezee, i think the book is dope. although there is alot of deceit in it, it doesn’t condone it, just says why it works, and then gives you a story of when it failed. its teaching you history based on using the main principals of power. for instance. i’ll say this one story that i personally liked alot.
A king once had a psychic as his aid. the psychic would pretty much dictate everything the king did and started gaining more and more respect from the kings piers. in order to stop any uprising in his palace, the king decides to kill the psychic. he orders him to his throne and before the king tells him his fate, he asks the psychic a question, “if you are all knowing, then tell me when you will die”. the psychic with no hesitation tells the king “3 days before you”. the psychic lived many years after the king died.
although there is deceit in that story, it is one you can take alot from, and there are many others like that in the book.
ne one ever see that movie two for the money paccino and i forget dudes name, but thats a perfect example of how one can get sucked in by the promises of money and bitches, and utimately become another person
Flag anything? Brotha, they flag EVERYTHING. Even the sites that you think are safe. If you attempt to pull up a obvious porn site then a restriction page will pop up and you’ll be denied. You can’t download anything but I can understand that. And if something can’t play in Windows Media then you’re assed out.
I agree in a sense the importance of keeping people dependent on you, but the true measure of success is leadership.true leadership comes from empowering others. And helping your followers grow. That’s true success. Check out john c maxwell’s 21 indispensable laws of leadership.
“I think we just donâ€™t allow CERTAIN Hispanic nationalities to get away with it. Why? Because some Hispanic cultures are closely tied to African roots and the others arenâ€™t.” – D.Billz
i gotta give it up to u on that. that’s real talk and its a topic thats exists, but is not out there on the table like that. most carribean/central american spanish speaking countries are part of the african diaspora from when the euros first crossed the atlantic. that was there first stop. you know whats funny tho, im from the east coast, where blacks, puerto rocks, haitains, and dominicans share the same struggles. out here on the west coast, where i live now for a few years, shits mad divided. blacks vs. brown. kinda a culture shock to me. My philosophy is this….there are what i like to call “black hispanics” and “white hispanics”. i feel like black hispanics (puerto ricans, domincans, panamanians etc) come from the same seed except their area was colonised by spanish speakin conquistadors as opposed to english speakin colonizers…england and spain battled for that whole carribean/central america region. and spain got the best of england there. had it been that way in north america, we woulda been speakin spainsh too….oh, and mencia is corn.
Well-put, chief. I couldn’t have said it better myself. I met this chick from Compton who goes to school out here in Maryland. And she broke down how the Mexicans back in Cali either, a.) can’t stand Black people, b.)don’t mind Blacks but would rather do their own thing and spend time creating a foundation for their own, or c.)are cool with Blacks and recognize the struggle, and will even date Blacks. It’s a whole other world out there on the West.
I found out not too long ago AZ is Dominican, totally threw me off. That’s why I get so upset when some Hispanics are so quick to claim their nationality before their race. Because if I didn’t know what country you came from when I first met you and all I can judge from is your skin color, then that’s pretty much how the rest of the world will perceive you.
I just watched the Mencia clip (finally). Kanye is gonna fry his ass for that one. He’s been gettin’ picked on too long not to say anything. If he let a Mexican dude get away with that, his hood card will be revoked for life!
I know what you’re thinkin, “who gave ‘Ye a hood card?”. If you openly put your career (possibly your life) on the line to speak out against that dictator that we have in office, then you’re more gangsta than any of these so-called “hood” rappers.
>>i feel like black hispanics (puerto ricans, domincans, panamanians etc) come from the same seed except their area was colonised by spanish speakin conquistadors as opposed to english speakin colonizersâ€¦
so what about the blond haired blue eyed Puerto Rican’s and Dominicans? Is it ok for them to say it?
I was being an ass… Trust me its far from great. Its like this, I would rather walk on broken glass laced with sars, while being chased by a hunger pitbull with razor sharp fangs.
@ G Town
what up gangsta?
@ D Billz and slickerthatmost
It doesn’t matter what skin color you are, its about where you’re from, I know black people with whiter skin than most euro whites, just like I know italians with darker skin than the “mexican spanish stereotype”.
What I’m trying to say its not the color that makes us its the culture.
>>I was being an assâ€¦ Trust me its far from great. Its like this, I would rather walk on broken glass laced with sars, while being chased by a hunger pitbull with razor sharp fangs.
damn my dude, I didn’t catch the sarcasm. Well I hope it doesn’t happen homey, for real. niggas need you on here e’ryday regulating…but more importantly I’m sure there are family and friends in the real world that really need you. If you do go back though, be safe my nig.
im afraid that all those Papoose, saigon, cory gunz are gonna get the jae millz effect.
they are nice freestyling and on mixtapes but go wood if they release anything commercial.
since ive realized this..im not getting my hopes up about ray cash or rick ros..although im digging that rick ros but he looks like he can rival david banner in the ugliest biggest mofo awards
>>how it makes it easier to know when someone responds to the thread, and is it to be used for smart phones like my blackberry.
well you can use it aloing with an rss reader (there are several types i.e. a website like Bloglines or an actuall software application like Sage) to subscribe to anything with a feed, like the comments on Nah Right for instance. that way when a new comment comes up, the reader will see it and display it in your reader of choice.
I don’t know of any readers for phones, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was one. But you should know that my comments feed will give you recent comments on every post. so for example you can’t just subscribe to the Black Rob Posts comments you’d have to go through new comments on every post.
“I dont recomend anyone to watch Mencias show, its just a wannabe version of Chapelles show.”
and latinos using “that word” is a topic i dont even want to touch. it seems to me like its a word nobody needs to use, but at the same time somebody with an ass as white as mine really doesnt have any place in the discution. as long as white people arent saying it, i dont think its white peoples place to say anything…dont let me catch any of the white heads out there thinking theyre down enough to say that shit, though, cause you an me will go around.
anyway, kanye pisses me off god damned constantly, so i fkin loved this video.
It was pretty funny, I thought it could of been funnier. I can see why people say this guy rubs them the wrong way, because he just gets a lil too serious with it.
In all honestly, Blacks got a problem with non blacks making fun of them. But when Black people talk about white people they think its perfectly fine. Like an equivalent of Chris Rock who would be white, could never get away with that kind of material.
But dude is mexican, I guess he gets a pass, but he not hood enough in my opinion, to just be blabbing nigga like that. For what its worth it was alright. Blacks got to be open minded too, when it comes to comedy. Well no not really cause thats how we let our frustration out on these white folks.
dog mencia’s a peace of shit, but i fel him on this whole kanye thing… i get tired of hearing kanye speak about things outside of hiphop, cause majority of times he says shit just because he can, and not because he’s right…”bush doesn’t care about black people” for example… kanye’s ego is gunna be his downfall
I’m half hispanic and half white. I look mostly white and growing up in a black community with black people trying to give me the “passcard” to say the N-word, I just had to turn it down. I can’t say it. Black people shouldn’t allow anyone else to say that word AT ALL. THere are better hispanic comedians out there (George Lopez, John Leguizamo) so don’t just hate on the hispanics for Mencia’s retardity (or his “dee dee dee” as he calls it). I must say though that that was a very funny video.
wtf was so funny about that? yeah, kanye is his own biggest fan and from some of the recent quotes a fuckin moron but is mencia down ‘with the hood’? that motherfucker had money since loco slam which was like the 80s and shit. i cant believe they compare that no talent-ass clown to dave chappelle. i guess in some peoples eyes, as long as you got a minority member saying ‘nigger’ its all good. here’s every mencia show/stand up special: ‘ black people eat chicken! white guys eat crackers! …and i’m a beeeeener!!! duh duh duh!’ fuck it, here’s a rule: if youre a dude from honduras who’s real name is ned (for real nigga, his real name is ned) you pretend to be a mexican named carlos, say ‘nigga’ and accuse people of not being real you’re a self deluded asshole. duh duh duh…
goddamn, you can get an idea of who mencia’s audience is from reading some of these dumb-ass posts. whateva nigga, wallow in ignorance. im just trippin of the fact that a HALF WHITE (german) half honduran ass-puppet has a carrer impersonatin a mexican. ned hortence to carlos mencia… if i were mexican, id be fuckin pissed (i guess thats why george lopez slapped tha shit out of him backstage for stealin material at one of their shows). but i guess if you a fuckin idiot you re like: right on ‘carlos’! tell these crackaz. dave, please come back, man, put this fake-ass beeener off comedy central please!!! hahaha
i dont have no problem with anyone sayin nigga. its all about tha context and who its comin from, and its really more of a reflection on whoever says it anyway. we give this word the power that it has by gettin all fucked up wheneva anyone says it. truth is (like richard prior says): aint no nigger no more. you aint a nigger unless you think you a nigger (and i really mean nigger, not nigga–which is a whole different thing, as in ignorant-ass being. if some white asshole calls you a nigga, you just know that you dealin with a fuckin redneck, so it should be more of a disadvantage to him for opennin his toothless mouth. it dont mean that all white people (or even rednecks) are racist. just tha motherfucker that came at you like that. and it goes for all races. if you retalite wit tha same racist bullshit back you lose. and i aint on some ‘we are the world’ bullshit, but this racism if a mad bad look for our HUMAN RACE in the 21st century. a ight, im gonna take my sharpton wig off now.
You don’t hear whites call each other cracker /wasp’s, unless they do it in privte an we just dont know about it . you don’t hear spanish people calling each other spic’s, or jews shiesters . so why is it that my black people find it alright for them to call themselves nigger or nigga , then get bent out of shape when others follow the leader. just a question i thought i’ll post
lets try leading by example, then see what they will call us then.
“lets try leading by example, then see what they will call us then”
right on, my nigga (hahaha sorry too temptin, im wit you on that one though). white people dont call each other cracker or wasp cause its just some shit we try to push on em. they dont have no stigma attached to it, ya dig, its just food. i say we either stop usin it all together, or use it all the time, use it to death, in everyday life, but STOP RESTRICTING IT for black people only, ya feel me? like, mencia, a fake-ass mexican with a made up name disses kanye for not bein real and making up his past. for that, mencia is a nigger. larry the cable guy is also a nigger. i know its an unusual position to take, but fuck it, i just want to be rid of the word that gives tha haterz so much power. BTW if anyone dont aggree with this, you a fuckin nigger ;b.

First of all, You guys sound like a bunch of Pu$$ies “Hey said the “N” word, so many times” in the Golddigger parody Shut the hell up You guys gotta take those sticks out of your a$$e$, seriously This was a parody on Kanye West, cause he seriously sounds like a total jackass, saying He’s the greatest of all time, saying that he should be in the bible, saying that the gramys owe him an award He sounds like a crying little girl I’m a Latin singer/songwritter (vocals, guitar) & I don’t give a $hit about the grammys. A real serious musician doesn’t care about the gramys cause old rich white people vote who wins anyways, not the fans, just rich celebrities vote too Kanye West needs to calm down like Carlos said. There are other great performers out there, who aren’t totally in love with themselves like he is. They write and perform music with the love for their fans and for the music. Carlos is one funny as spic LoL Black & White people talk racist $hit about spanish people all the time behind their back all the time, I’ve heard it myself, cause I don’t look spanish, but they didn’t know I was spanish, so freely talked a lot of $HIT !!!!!!!
I got alot to get off my chest after reading through everyone’s comments here.
#1 Kanye West – While I like his music, he tends to put his big @ss foot in his mouth all the time. So what if he’s from the suburbs… and, I’ve never heard him say that he’s from the streets. So at least he not fakin’ the funk on being gangsta. Everyone is talking about racism coming from many different directions other than Kanye, no one is looking at him. While I wouldn’t call him a straight up racist, there have been quite a few times where is lack of exposure to society as a whole, has shown that he holds a strong bias (more like prejudice) towards non-nubians.
Oh, and he is an arrogant, whiny bitch. If I could give him some advise, it would be to stick to music Kanye, and don’t say anything unscripted, or say anything that wasn’t approved by your PR rep/ manager.
2. Don’t hate on Mencia. He’s a pale Dave Chappelle, he uses the “N” word too much. You know what? He has a very lucrative career making fun of people, and he will continue to do so as long as people like to laugh and have thick skin. I was a fan of Mencia years ago. I saw his HBO half hour special, I also saw his stand up on Comedy Central. He is a talented comedian who doesn’t have to stoop to humor that put’s grins on clansmen’s faces. I think, Carlos ended up with the same writers that Chappelle had. Therefore, I think Mencia just took the reins and rolled with it. Few people complained about Chappelle’s humor before (outside of the Dark Crusaders, see http://www.chappelletheory.com, I think it’s BS since there’s no substantiating evidence, but it’s quite plausible). But, now that it’s coming out of someone’s mouth who lacks the melanin Dave has, it’s offensive. It was offensive before. So what’s so different now?
@Marco – I’m feeling you on what you said about giving our Grandkids a future without the stigma of such a word.
#3 I’m Puerto Rican, the man that raised me is black. My Dad is a well-educated successful brotha who spends much of his free time expanding his knowledge of cultural history. Not just Black/AFRAM history, but all cultural-ethno-religious history. I’d like to add that he is an entrepeneur and a “Rich Dad” (we both have read the series). I’ve faced racism from other latinos, from Black people, and from white people too. It wasn’t easy for me. But, I love it when I see my brothers, Latinos and Nubians, pushing towards independence, breaking the stereo-type and handling their finances. Being entrepeneurs, brokers, getting an education (while it doesn’t gaurantee success, it’s a very useful tool towards acheiving success).
#4 Funny is funny. Bear with me here, it’s a bit long, but there is a point to it. That is, don’t take yourself to seriously. Laugh at what is funny.
Here’s where my life story gets better, I have two kids that are half black and puerto rican, and a third who is half PR, 1/4 white, and a 1/4 Mexican. 3 kids, 4 different races (I’ve been busy). I’m in my mid-20’s, at first glance, most people think I’m 20, and once they have a conversation with me, they think I’m in my late 20’s. How do I do it? Because I don’t take myself too seriously.
My wife is half Mexican and white. Her mother, I’ll say it, is a wetback. But she doesn’t think it. She is one of those people in the world I look at and can’t figure out, “how the hell did they get that way?” She is scared of black men(but gets wet looking at Shemar Moore), doesn’t trust white people(but refuses to see a doctor that isn’t white), thinks black women are bitches(when she is the bigger bitch), and thinks all typical Mexicans are Wetbacks, and not her(she needs to look in the mirror). This woman calls herself a Texan. But let me tell you, she is a grade school drop-out, sunburnt, FOB (Fresh Over the Border), “7 Days to Wetback English” passing Beaner (she’s in denial). Plus, she looks sixty, but is only 42, and acts like a fucking bitchy ass teenage girl. I’m sure you have all seen some movie like Desperado, where there is some old, wrinkled old, fugly Mexican woman… Well, that’s her, just uglier and more ignorant ( I guess you have all figured out I don’t like her).
But I digress… I know it’s not easy to listen to someone make racial jokes about people that he/she doesn’t share a culturo-ethno-religious common ground. You have to delve a bit deeper into their intentions. Just like when I’m poking fun of my wife by making Mexican jokes, and my mother-in-law gets pissed off about it. Delve deeper… Is it in the name of pure humor? Or as it really meant to be overtly racist with the intentions of offending?
If it’s meant to be funny in the name of humor, then take it for what it is, FUNNY.
People, don’t take yourselves to seriously. You will have a richer more fullfilling life that way.
I odnt give a fuck what u niggers think and say u fucking beaners.
Carlos mencia is the best, so is his show.
I odnt give a fuck that he says nigger nor do i give a fuck when i say nigger.
Yes i am white but i dont give a flying fuck that its racist.
So go fuck your nigger selfs!
Wow – the entire race debate is sooooooo alive in the US. Here in Calgary, AB, Canada, it seems that it is Chinese and Indian culture that is influencing our work ethic, it is Afram culture that influences our youth, and it is profit that influences our working class. European culture is the foundation, but gradually, we are all becoming beige…
First off one must distinguish that the word nigga and nigger mean two different things. But i suppose in some circumstances one must analyze the context of which it is being used in. So peace out niggaz!!
All of you that say hes saying nigger too freely need to shut the fuck up. Hes not racist and its just a fucking word you pussies. As for Kanye West, his beat for Golddigger is good but the lyrics suck and Kanye sucks so thankfully Mencia put in some better lyrics and made this tune one catchy song.
Carlos Mencia’s real birth name is Ned Arnel Mencia – He got the name Carlos from his Uncle Carlos – He went by the name Ned Holness early in his life in honor of his father, Roberto Holness. His mother is Magdalena Mencia. With that said, what the fuck are you saying he’s fake pretending to be Mexican? If you seen his stand up like you say – he’ said that he’s from Honduras. His Gradfather was born in the Cayman Islands and his last name, Holness does come from Germany. What that means, like many Mexicans, who along time ago in their history were fucked by the Spanish and thats why we have last names like Diaz, Ramirez, Sandoval, and Gonzalez; sometime in his family’s history someone fucked a German and what do you know the name Holness was passed down. Now, FYI – Other people in show business have changed their names – Jon Stewart is Jonathan Leibowitz. You talked about the context of how the ‘N’ word is used, What’s the context when you used the word beaner in your post. From the post it seem like you’ve got some hate in you against Latinos and you’re trying to justify it by going against a ‘fake-ass beaner’ as you stated. He’s still from Honduras and is considered a Latino and he grew up in East L.A. and he went through the same hardships as other Mexicans. You say that Mencia’s stand up is the same all the time, listen up dumb ass, almost all comedians repeat their same fucken material. Get a Clue and get your shit straight. And it’s not Duh Duh Duh! It’s DEE DEE DEE! Pendejo! And Yes, I am Mexican!
Think it’s funny that j ricky can do nothing but talk smack about Carlos Mencia, when he doesn’t know shit about him. Carlos has NEVER claimed to be Mexican. He’s always said he’s from Honduras. But I guess unless you knew of him BEFORE Mind of, you don’t know SHIT, LOSER!
Mencia isn’t doing anything chris rock or chappelle aren’t doing except he’s not black. And so because of this, he’s not suppose to be funny and has to be racist?? Well, FUUUUCK YOUUUUUU. If you have a problem with his comedy FUUUUUUCK YOUUUUU. If you have a problem with the N word FUUUUUUUCK YOUUU. Carlos isn’t white he won’t be apologetic for every single whiney bs you come up with.
And since when did the bitching minorities become the majority in this country. Listen very carefully, EXCEPT LIBERAL WHITIES (with no real concept of real life), NO CARES SO STOP BITCHING. Like Carlos said it perfectly, and I totally relate, “I’m not white, I don’t apologize for what my country did to become great”
That clip was hilarious. Kanye needs to be put back in his place. Stop pretending you’re stepping up for black rights by defending that arrogant, pampered pseudo-fag. Someone had to say it, good shit Carlos.
Mencia goes too far sometimes but thats what break-through comedy is all about sometimes. If you’re offended by it, then ignore and move on. If you’re gonna speak up like and bitch about it then FUUUUUUCK YOUUUUUU, because you’re a hipocrit. You double stardard, libery pansies are whats wrong with America noadays not Mencia.
I do not think it is right to exclude any race or ethnic group from saying a word, If they can not say the word why should you. Besides race is stupid anyways, there is only one race to me, the human race. There are different ethnic groups though, each with their own culture. That is what makes us different. Skin color, hair type, and facial structure are only visual our culture & personality is what makes us who we are. It should not matter is a white person or a black person laughs at a joke, a person is a person and a joke is a joke. Everybody needs to calm down and try not to let their prejudices get in the way. We have divided people into sterotypes with our minds which is normal in most cultures, but we must learn not to let that control us. We control our minds and be logical.
carlos mencia aka ned holness is only funny to right wing white people who love to see minorities sell their race out for a laugh. he is the hispanic version of the modern day uncle tom. As a comedian he falls short. how long is his racist and stereotypical brand of comedy gonna take him? the funniest comedians (richard pryor and co.) didn’t even need to use profanity in their punchlines, much less racist and self degredating rhetoric. Long story short, don’t support this asshole, ignore him and he’ll disappear for good
thought it was fucking funny hes just telling the truth about how all niggers think they think white people owe them something tell them to start acting right instead of stealing everybodys shit and causing all these problems worldwide and get off of fucking wellfare so my check that i work for will go to a better cause
Hol……..on there buva, Ricans can use it but colombians cant? Colombia has Second Largest population of Africans outside of Africa(brazil has first) and this aint includin folks who are justt mixed with some african like PRs, PR on the other hand acourding to their census stats (the last onee they did in 90s) are mosttly “spanish” ie white caucasians, what gives them a pass,so ricky martins a brutha now? what gives americans solle right to use the term black? they dont even know what tribe they are,most Colombian blacks are Yoruba, it still survives in creole form in parts and Yoruba religion is still plenty present as “Santeria” or “hispanic cathoolicsm” somehow americans are ignorant enough to call it hispanic nonesense as apoused to the “blackness” of baptiism, not knowing most latiins practice some form of yoruba rites
You people are beyond retarded. You don’t give somebody a ‘pass’ to say a word. What are you going to do to Mencia? Turn off the TV? Christ, anybody can use that word if they see fit and there is not a damned thing you can do about it–except gripe. The word is latin for black, if it’s okay to say “Black,” then why is saying it in Latin so much of a bigger deal?” Grow the fuck up, and get over the ‘race’ card. You’re just as well suited to succeed in this economy as anyone else, despite your hundred year vacation from working.

Carlos Mencia is a funny person in a retarded and ignorant sort of way. He is also an idiot. He tries to sell his ideas on his show to a, lets say, lower level of audience. And they applaud his political a racial views… WOW!
First, he is not Mexican. And just because you grew up around them, does NOT make you one. He is not Black. So why does he get away with using the N word? This man has no knowledge of his own culture (He is from Honduras by the way) but makes it a point to stereotype everybody else’s?
Hey, Iâ€™m all for diversity. I love United States for its people and multi cultural background (Canâ€™t say much for your government.). But I can laugh at myself. And I can also laugh at some the things we are stereotyped for. But, NOT from this wanna be Mexican, who only pretends to know what we are about. He only makes jokes to make people laugh at us and uses his (half) brother as an example to try and sell it. The poor guy doesnâ€™t even know his brother is using him. How low do you have to be to use your own flesh and blood as the butt of your joke on Television? Would you sell out your family?
Carlos Mencia is missing 2 key elements on what makes a real Mexican-American. And those are Self Respect and PRIDE!!! He tries so hard to fit in with every one else but canâ€™t find himself.
So yes, Mencia is a sellout. He is a disgrace to all Latinoâ€™s. And I hope he pick’s up a clue some day.
You guys are a bunch of pussies. Ofcourse he makes jokes to make ppl laugh… that’s what a joke is for dumbass. That is the purpose… of a joke. What really pisses me off is retards who think they’re intelligent and try to make even stupider ppl think they’re intelligent by using big words and intelligent sounding phrases. Then they try to sound more intelligent by giving a seemingly intelligent and deep point of view that is total bullshit. And how many times does he have to say it to get through to you ppl? He’s not talking about real mental retardation, he’s talking about morons like all of you. Look anybody can say any word, okay? And who says he “needs” to use profanity? That’s the only way to get throught to dumbass ppl. Dumbass ppl need to be yelled at and called names or they don’t listen. He’s trying to tell them to stop being pussies and suck it the fuck up, cuz the world honestly doesn’t give a fuck. Stop bitching and moaning about how it hurts your little homo feelings. (no I’m not a fucking homophobe, I have more than one gay friend(no I’m not gay either, I know how you morons try to look for flaws and jokes you can pull about ppl who dis you or disagree with you and frankly its pathetic)) And how the fuck can you claim to be mexican and even begin to question the government of the United State? Have you ever lived in EEUM? (Estados Unidos Mexicanos, meaning Mexican United States). Do you have a clue what it’s like over there? How just about every cop wants bribes for anything and sometimes for nothing? How Carlos Salinas de Gortari stole millions of dollars and left the country, but now freely goes in and out of the country no questions asked? How the last assassination of a president elect was in 1994 when they assassinated Luis Donaldo Colosio? Good ppl who want to change the corruption over there are afraid to run for office. It’s getting better… but no where near the US. Why does they’re government and economy suck? Cuz of all the greedy and corrupt fucks in office. So don’t, DON’T come here and question the government! Mencia isn’t a disgrace to anyone, all of you are a disgrace to your cultures. Oh yeah and there’s no such thing as “african american” or “mexican american”. If you were born in Mexico you’re mexican, if you were born in
Africa you’re african, if you were born here… then you’re fucking american. You can not take the adjective for 2 cultures alright? And Mencia wasn’t dissing black ppl or anything, so why are so mad? He was just pointing out how Kanye West is a dumbass. You don’t compare yourself to a religious diety… that’s celebrity fuck suicide. And you don’t lie about street rep. Cuz as soon as you become a celebrity, suddenly your whole past becomes the number one seller in Barns and Nobels accross the country. And if any word is acceptable… for any group of ppl… then it’s acceptable period. Honestly… it’s unconstitutional to say otherwise. It’s prejudice. You’re fucking segregating saying “these ppl can, but these ppl can’t”. That is fucking bullshit. And you know what? No body’s being racially profiled now-a-days. Why? because everyone is, and when everyone is, NOBODY IS! So all of you shut the fuck up and stop being jealous cuz all your jokes suck and you can’t make any money off of them. If you wanna contact me for any reason, then e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And I know many of you do, you wanna bitch at me. I’m not coming back here cuz reading this crap is lowering my IQ by 10 points every minute so if you’re gonna bitch at me or talk shit about me then atleast have the balls, decency, and self-respect to tell me aswell. Late Bitches.
