Homeboy Sandman Pens "Black People Are Cowards" Column

"I have come to the decision that I agree wholeheartedly with the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers," Homeboy Sandman says, "and I too do not want Black people invited to my events."

Homeboy Sandman says that he agrees with Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. On Friday (April 25), TMZ released audio that allegedly features Sterling speaking with his girlfriend. 

"You can sleep with [Black people],” Sterling allegedly says in the audio, which is available below. "You can bring them in. You can do whatever you want.  The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games.” 

In an article he wrote for Gawker, Homeboy Sandman said he sides with Sterling.

"I have come to the decision that I agree wholeheartedly with the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, and I too do not want Black people invited to my events,” the rapper says in his article. "It’s not for the same reasons that the Clippers’ owner doesn’t want black people invited to his events.”

Homeboy Sandman’s reason: "I don’t want Black people at my events anymore, because Black people are cowards,” he says. "In all the history I’ve ever studied, in all the fiction I’ve ever read, I am hard pressed to find an example of cowardice to rival the modern day Black American, and nobody wants to be surrounded by cowards right? What if lions break out of the zoo and start trying to eat everyone? What if aliens attack? What if the police department decides that they want to grab their batons and blow off some steam? Are cowards really the type of people that you want to be surrounded by? Not me.

"That’s why I don’t want Black people at my events anymore,” he continues. "Athletes that could refuse to perform until a killer is arrested, even until a killer is convicted, who instead opt for taking a picture where they all have their hoods on and then carrying on with business as usual: I don’t want to be surrounded be these clowns. If you’re Black, or White, and you go back to work after finding out that your boss is grossed out at the idea of being in the same vicinity with any Black person except for the cutie he’s sugar daddy to, I’m pretty sure you’re not who I want in my corner during crunch time. Real crunch time. Life crunch time."

In the article, Homeboy Sandman says that Blacks can stand up in times of need by using social media to rally each other, taking time off from work and boycotting companies, magazines, television networks and other entities that he says purposely promote negative images of Black people.

"So make a decision between cowardice and courage, and if you choose courage, step it up,” he says. "Step it up in any of the myriad of ways that are available to us. I’ve named a few. Name a few more. Leave a few suggestions in the comments section. Call up your friends. Tweet. Facebook.

"Then start doing them,” he continues. "If you can’t convince anyone to do them with you, do them on your own. Start right away because we’re running out of time. I hear some states are fining people for sagging their pants. I’d never sag my pants, but if we begin to allow people to be penalized simply for attributes that we’ve allowed to be associated with being Black, we’re going to find the water getting even hotter very soon. We’ve been cowards for a very long time. We have a lot of catching up to do. Let’s start right now."

The audio of Sterling is as follows:

    i read the article and realized i will no longer be visiting DX or any of the other sites that promote the degradation to our nation. sounds extreme but i live in chicago.. we need an extreme change

    Fuck y'all.If a black man react,you arrest him,if we are quiet our own race call us coward.shame on you lame ppl

  • brave

    everyone should read the full article before posting... its and bits of DX isnt the whole article... it aint easy to do what Sandman asked but it's damn freaking true...

  • Potato_with_Jive

    For everyone getting all angry at Sandman...soley based on the title of the article, its painfully OBVIOUS you haven't read it. (Probably because your attention span can't go beyond 140 characters.) If you DID read it, you'd realize he is giving tough love on a culture, our culture, that has become complacant with the buffoonery they selling you. What he is ACTUALLY saying, if you gave a shit enough to read it is...Black people are MORE than whats on TV, MORE than what your favorite rapper says. More than just hollering, ignorant, violent dummies obsessing about money. IF you cared to read beyond the purposely trolling title. And guess what, you fell for it! You prove his point wonderfully!

  • Akkalade

    Somebody smack the fuck the out of this ass clown! Homeboy you wont see black people at your shows because you are boring. That is probably why you go by Sandman! Keep rapping about lighting bolts and shit. If you don`t like black people, get out of hip-hop! And for you niggaz saying "he`s right"FUCK YOU TOO

  • real

    did he quit his job with all the mass shooting at white schools. For someone white to try and tell black people how to react to racial issues is just as dumb as Strelings comments. While he doesnt invite black people to his events we wont care.

    Thanks for your unsolicited, idiotic input Homeboy Sandman....Who the fuck are you again?

  • Ziploc

    the only way out of the hole is through economic leverage,which in turn translates into real situations being taking serious cause at the end of the day,money moves people and corperations,the bottom line dictates everything around us..boycots will not work if there is no unified moral thread to go along with public outrage,which seems to last for about a week nowadays...I think that the internet made it too easy for people to become armchair revolutionairies and move on after they had enough retweets...

  • Bee Will

    I disagree Mr. Homeboy Sandman, While what you say is wonderful in a perfect world, we don't live in that world. So you want me to strike, boycott or whatever when I find the my boss is a racist, but doing that doesn't feed my family. The possibility of a lowly civil service worker staging a boycott in the south to protest the bigotry of my bosses, does not keep my family with health care. While athletes have more advantages then the common man, it would be hard pressed to ask the common man to do such a righteously erroneous act. Yes the other LA team had the world as a stage, did the fail us, no...I don't think so. Even John Carlos and Tommie Smith performed prior to their 1968 Olympic protest. Athletes don't want to win for the owners, they want to win mostly, for themselves and their legacy, and then for the fans...and perhaps, if it's a decent, historic franchise, then for the organization. I personally think they best way to hurt the rich, is in their pockets, that LA team failed in that regard, perhaps it will be different when they come back to LA to play.

    • Your Wrong

      Sandman is completely correct......If all the black players in the NBA boycotted the affects would be like no other... 1) ticket sales 2)image 3)fans 4) TNT / Ted Turner 5)ESPN 6)Legal and illegal gambling... A boycott would cost these cats so much money they would run dude out in 5 mins.... One thing about Jews/white man you don't mess with their money... I say boycott and show them that our money is green just like other races....

    • truthborn

      this is exactly why sandman is saying black people are cowards cause what do you guys think is going to happen when you have to stand up and rise as a people, that there's a bill or an outlet that's going to pay your bills or feed your family if there's a revolution? This is how they keep control of the masses...by controling our resources and necessatties and keeping us at bay with a threat of discontinuing those services if we rise up.... FAITH is what would lead us through the valley of death...not being able to pay your cable bill ya bunch of scardy cats.... but no...go ahead and discredit this article and contniue to lash each other out.... good day.

  • Whatever

    I keep wondering why everybody expects the players to not play. Why the hell does everybody expect, or believe their should be some big ass boycott. The Clippers TEAM want a championship. Fuck the owner. He sealed his fate already. Even if people don't go to the game, the tickets have already been sold. No refund on that. The television rights have already been picked up and contracts. Those obligations gotta be fulfilled. People still gonna watch. You think the 18,000 people not going into the stadium are gonna stop the millions of people watching at home. Revenue still coming in folks. Fuck all this boycott shit. If you really want a boycott a company, boycott Radio One. That's another story, though.

  • Voice of Reason

    As long you get your check on time, which by the way, is more than you've ever made in your life, then shut the fuck up. If your conversations were recorded when you weren't in your best moment, then you'd sound like an asshole too, and you'd beg for us to understand that you were just emotional at the time and out of control. Look, it doesn't matter what I think about black people. Who's worse? The guy who doesn't want his girl to be around blacks, but provides blacks with jobs, riches, homes, and opportunity? Or the guy who says "I love black people, they're the greatest people on earth", but then sells them drugs, steals from them, and takes advantage of them. You naive motherfuckers need to wake up and step into the real world. If I offered any one of you self-righteous assholes a million dollars to work for me, you'd do it in a second. Look at your clothes, assholes. You think the people who own these clothing companies hang with black people? You think the guy who owns your stupid ass car is chumming it up with niggas in the hood? Get the fuck outta here. I grew up in NY, the real fuckin' world, where the local pizzeria owners would throw around racial slurs all day, but they'd also give us free food to take home to our families and welcome us into their own home. Half you fuckers that are bitchin' about Donald Sterling are the same ones that hate homosexuality. What the fuck is the difference? Some trife ass bird could coax you into a heated discussion and get you to say some foul shit too. As if these NBA players have actually stood up for anything in their life. If they thought they would lose one penny by protesting they wouldn't do it. You guys are living in a fuckin' dream world.

    • Voice of mothafuckin' reason

      "He only sees black people as objects". So fuckin' what. Your boss sees you as an object too, because you ARE an object, asshole. In times when there were 100 people living in a village, and everyone was important to the growth and development of a village, then everyone was seen as important. In this day and age where these 100 billion fuckin' people, there's no way for some CEO to NOT look at his employees as percentages and objects. You think some fucker workin' at Wal-Mart has any access to Warren Buffet? He'd have to wait a month just to talk to the district manager, who is also an 'object'. Your self-worth shouldn't come from what some rich asshole thinks of you, it should come from what you think of yourself and what your loved ones think of you, and if you don't have a penny to bring to the table but you're spewing all kinds of self-righteous bullshit, your family won't think much of you. Look, it'd be great if we could all have our own businesses and make a living independent of someone else, but we can't ALL do that, and in the mean time we have to make a fuckin' living. A human being in complex and the world is complex. You can't sum up one man by one conversation that he has. I'm not justifying his comments, but I AM saying that people are way overreacting. If you fall in love with a girl, and her grandfather doesn't like your ethnicity, are you gonna boycott your relationship with her and say 'We can't see each other any more until your Grandfather apologizes to me'. No, you're gonna say 'fuck that old prick, he's gonna be dead soon any way', and continue to see the girl you love. The best thing anyone can do to fight back against bigotry and injustice is to try to be a good person in their own life and spread positivity in their circle. Standing outside with a picket sign ain't gonna do nothin' but get you fired from your job. All that shit you said about basketball...listen dummy, this is America, the best man will get the job. As far as I'm concerned, the fact that Donald Sterling is a racist and still hires blacks because they are the best men for the job is a GOOD thing. You can't go inside his mind and his heart and change his views on race. What exactly are they boycotting? His feelings? Go fuck yourself. He can feel however he wants. What if someone said to you "I'm not going to hire you, because you like Hip-Hop music and Hip-Hop music contributes to the downfall of Black America". You'd be the first motherfucker outraged, saying you have a right to like and dislike whatever you want as long as it doesn't effect your performance. You're a hypocritical delusional idealistic fuck face that has never actually been through anything, I can tell.

      too long of a comment

    • mapos

      @Voice of Reason This has got to be the most idiotic, ignorant ass comment I've ever seen on here. And that's pretty amazing seeing how HipHopDX seems to be full of ignorant people. That dude Sterling is forced to pay for those black people because he knows they're better at basketball than most of the non-black people playing. Hell, the closest thing to an all-white team in the NBA is the Timberwolves, and you see how they've been doing for the past few years? He only sees those black people as objects, a means to get more money and nothing more. I bet you if there were more non-black people who were just as good as black people are, that team would be pure white or 90% white with some token blacks in there to make sure that he showed that he had an open mind when it came to recruiting. And don't assume that everybody would sell their dignity and souls for some money. Just because you think you live in the "real world" (NYC an overrated piece of trash city inhabited by self-centered people who think God specifically chose them as his blessed children) doesn't mean that you know how anybody & everybody would react to the same situation. You need to get out of that bubble you live in and see exactly how wrong you are.

    sadly he's right, I think a song came out a lil bit ago called "Where's Our Leader?" kinda sums everything up right now. Back in the day ppl like Ali used their platform to speak out against situations like this, where's the athlete that does that now? They might make too much money for that now is probably the problem. I feel like Chris Paul could be that person right now as president of player's association and player on the team but probably won't, too many endorsements.

    Real fucking talk man! If we wont cowards Rush Limbaugh, George Zimmerman, Cliven Bundy and niggas like them would be dead. Niggas would be scared to speak on us. They used to be shook back when Pac was alive now they dont give a fuck.

    • Will

      They were scared of the intelligence and uplifting nature of Pac's music until he started putting on the thug life act. Then they sat back and made their money off of him. A black man with a gun does not represent revolution. A black man with a sharp mind does that.

    • Anonymous

      Nobody was ever shook of Pac, Jimmy Iovine sat back and laughed at his "Thug Life" routine, all the while making money of it and then turning him into a false idol after death to continue profiting.


    Uh, post the whole article you stupid fucks he goes on to do a complete turn around & was just setting up the article with the part you posted, I swear DX has the stupidest fucking writers on the internet. DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!

      websites editors probably don't read the shit either - they post these things to provoke people, just like fox news & them. the more bonehead arguments that get started in the comments section, the more page views they get, and the higher they charge for ads. looks like you fell for it.

  • son of a sax

    I see whut HS is sayin and to use the Sterling now hot topic as the platform. To get your thoughts out there was a good idea. It is time for us to take a stand on sumthin. Like Jeff Van Gundy said yesterday. Those are grown men out there. Why can't they speak out and say sumthin. Not just in sport, but in everday life. I guess its whut ever there priorties are and whuts important. Being allowed to sag out in public, isnt as important as getting weed legalized in the state. Ya know, smh

    If you go up high enough on the totem pole at ANY job, you'll find a rich racist somewhere at the top. Does that mean that none of us are ever supposed to work and make money? That's not realistic. And he doesn't have to worry about Black people coming to his shows, because all 71 of his fans in the world are white backpackers any way.

    • Anon

      Mostly true.. but the bigger idea is for people to become their own bosses and employers. Become business owner and make money for yourself instead of the next man.
