Hey RZA! Here are 6 Examples of Black Men that ‘Cleaned Up’ and Still Considered a Threat to Cops

Hey RZA! Here are 6 Examples of Black Men that ‘Cleaned Up’ and Still Considered a Threat to Cops

In an interview with Bloomberg Politics, Wu-tang Clan member and music producer RZA decided to reveal how he has become an elitist who is obviously out of touch with the plight of the black community. The intent of the interview was to discuss, “disgraced pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli, who bought the only copy of the band’s “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” album.” However, during the interview, he was asked what he thinks about the Black Lives Matter movement, and he responded, “Of course black lives matter. All lives matter. I stopped eating meat because their life matter to me.”




Unfortunately, RZA and racist cops have one thing in common; they both have reduced black lives to those of animals. There is currently a trend of police officers gunning down unarmed, non-threatening black people, slaughtering them one by one like animals in the street. Depriving black people of their human right to live is the catalyst that sparked the Black Lives Matter movement. And a black man who grew up in the same streets where police officers profiled, discriminated against, and harassed black youth, has the temerity to suggest his thoughts about the movement are that black lives matter just as much as animal flesh.

And if that wasn’t disturbing enough, RZA addressed respectability politics and revealed how he has been assimilated into the mainstream culture by suggesting what the black youth should “dress like” to avoid being a possible threat to white police officers.

“But when you think about, you know, some of the brothers who are being brutalized by the police, you know what I mean, you also gotta have them take a look in the, us take a look in the mirror at the image that we portray. If I’m a cop, and every time I see a young black youth, whether I watch him on TV, movies, or just see them hanging out and they not looking, you know, properly dressed, properly defined, you know, carrying themself, conducting themself at proper hours of the day; things that a man does. You know what I mean? You’re gonna have a certain kinda of fear and stereotype of them.”

One of the main issues with RZA’s perspective is that he is one of the many rappers that set the standard of dress code by which most of black youth live by to the date. And now it appears that he’s victim blaming by suggesting, “It’s your [blacks] fault that you are being killed by cops because your clothes are scary.”

“The image that we portray that can invoke a fear into a white officer or to any officer.”




The fact is that dressing “better” is relative, and definitely won’t prevent a black person from being a victim of white supremacy. Furthermore, it is hypocritical for RZA to advise the youth to avoid going out in “hoodies” and to “button up [their] shirts, you know, clean up,” when the products in the WuTang clothing line are hoodies and definitely don’t include any of the button up shirts that he suggests may prevent police officers from being “scared” and feeling “threatened.”

Regardless of how black people dress, they deserve respect, and to have their rights honored as citizens and humans. If a police officer is intimidated by urban wear, then the issue is with him; not a black man’s hoodie.

Nevertheless, below is a list of examples to show RZA that it doesn’t matter how much “better” a black man dresses. White supremacy will always prevail over respectability politics.

1.) Dr. Henry Louis Gates

Dr. Henry Louis Gates

Harvard professor Dr. Henry Louis Gates was arrested as a result of complaints that he was breaking into his own home in Cambridge, Massachussetts.




2.) James Blake

James Blake

Ex-tennis star James Blake was tackled and arrested by a plainclothes white cop after supposedly being mistaken for another “black man” who was a suspect in a credit card sting that was taking place. I guess all black men look alike.

3.) John Feller

John Felton

Michigan resident John Feller was pulled over by an Ohio cop while driving his brother to a birthday party and was told the reason he was stopped was because he had made ‘direct eye contact’ with the officer.

4.) Chris Rock

Chris Rock posted a selfie on social media for each of the 3 times that he had been stopped by police officers within 2 months.




5.) Darius Rucker

Lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish, Darius Rucker, stated that although he tours with white singers in the group, historically, he has been the only one stopped by airport security.
6.) Danny Glover
Danny Glover

Danny Glover was pulled over by a New York City cop that claimed Glover wasn’t wearing his seat belt. However, he spoke about the racial profiling at Albertus Magnus College, stating, “[the officer] has really good vision” to be able to notice his “lack” of seatbelt usage at night.

What makes the duo’s endeavors so chilling is that once they feel that justice has been served, they collect a very special souvenir from each case—displaying them as badges of work well done.

Things are going very well until a deranged client interferes with their efforts, threatening to expose the principles which they deeply believe in.

How to Avoid High Child Support Payments and Not Be A Deadbeat Dad

How to Avoid High Child Support Payments and Not Be A Deadbeat Dad Image

Child support, while good in concept and theory, is a flawed system filled with a wealth of biases and unfair child support laws that many times aren’t reasonable for the non-custodial parent to honor. Child support enforcement has gotten more strenuous over the years, and doesn’t put forth much consideration of the obligations that non-custodial parents may have to support themselves.

While there are many parents who choose not to financially support their children, there are many who do. Nevertheless, the child support courts and the Office of Child Support Enforcement (CSE), have geared unfair child support laws to battle against deadbeat parents. Consequently, all non-custodial parents, even those who are actively involved in their children’s lives—are faced with a downward spiral of actions taken against them, making it almost impossible to recover from. Some of these atrocities include:

• Warrant(s) issued for arrest and imprisonment
• License(s) suspended and or passport revoked
• Income taxes offset
• Garnished paychecks
• Difficulty finding employment

Therefore this “child support for dummies” guide is intended to give parents with unfair and unreasonable child support payments information to determine fair monetary payments and how to set up a system that will force the state to honor those agreements. The goal is to not only protect the interests of children, but to also prevent destruction of the non-custodial parent’s assets, capital, and livelihood.

  4. To suggest he is an elitist is rediculous. This entire article is tailored to the writers objectives. None of the examples can be proven as racially motivated. Not to suggest that the examples werent racially motivated but to paint the image the way it has been painted is like tracing the mona lisa with a crayon and saying its a master piece…and by the way no one ever bought wu wear… The clothing line was trendy for a limited amount of time…and they did have polos and collared shirts…i sold the clothes. There is truth in both points, and black lives do matter but to suggest he is out of touch because he said he thinks all lives matter and stopped eating meat is not creating contrast between blacks and animals. Racist cops have existed since the first sherrif was pinned. Its a culture within the police dept by driven by tendancies and predicated by fear. I live in chicago and dont experience nearly as much racism as i do violence from my own community. If black lives matter focused its campaign initiatives inward the ramifications would be reciprocated quicker. The truth is how you carry yourself greatly impacts how you are perceived. Because we are trained at young ages to be weary of police we generally dont know how to behave in confrontational situations and can be the instigators of our own demise. The facts show that blacks are constantly harrassed and mistreated at a higher rate than other ethnicites…thats fact. However in the middle of the ocean you have to swim or drown. We van not expect to fix the response with out cultivating the image. Young black people in this city are ignorant as hell and their actions should not be forgiven. Nor should racism within the police force. But consequently if you walk like a criminal, talk, like a criminal, and are in compromising situations you will be viewed as a criminal. If we stop putting ourselves in the ocean we wont need a life jacket.

  5. Sounds to me like rza has grown up! Respect. Some of you grown men ot there who dress and act like young thugs because you missed having a man in your life, need to look up to grown men like rza and others for guidance. I don’t care if you’re 40 years old! Pull your pants up, stand up straight, stop talking like a 13 year old kid trying to bully respect out of people, and watch the world magically change around you.
