Yesterday, in one of the sadder non-Peter Rosenberg-related moments in the history of black radio, DJ Envy of Power 105’s the Breakfast Club tried to make a case for stop and frisk—this while more or less unarmed black men are still being shot and killed by the police on the reg.
You can tell these remarks weren’t off the cuff, because Envy, Charlamagne tha God, et al. were citing statistics that they couldn’t have just pulled out of their asses. Like the fact that in the last year of stop and frisk NYPD confiscated 890 illegal guns. Since they’ve gotten rid of stop and frisk, they’ve only found like 200. But as Angela Yee pointed out, it’s not like there’s been a huge increase in shootings.
Yee and Charlamagne took the opposite position, that stop and frisk served no purpose other than to funnel more and more black men into the prison-industrial complex, but it was obvious they were all just reading from a script and that any of them could have argued either side of the issue, as the TIs saw fit.
Speaking of which, whoever came up with this bit may have felt it was best that Envy argue in favor of stop and frisk because he’s a known cornball brother and lightskinted to the point where 5-0 might not bother harassing him, thinking he’s a cracka-ass cracka.
Charlamagne tha God, on the other hand, is still a shade darker than a brown paper bag, thus precluding him from entrance to some HBCUs, despite having undergone skin-bleaching treatments.
The Dark Skin Activist Rashida Strober slams Power 105.1 radio jock Charlemagne for his idiotic oxymoronic statements that ‘white nubian’ queens were in. This is all not surprising coming from a man who recently bleached his skin after being teased mercilessly by the public at large for dark spots on his face. Colorism is a serious issue in the black community and I commend Rashida for having the cojones to tackle this issue head on.

Newly light skin radio host Charlemagne drops some truth about what happens when rappers keeping it real goes wrong.
Definitely did not see this coming. Though he was often ridiculed for having dark blotches on his skin never would I have thought he would get plastic surgery and bleach his skin. Hit the jump to see the newly knifed up and significantly whiter Charlemagne who gets playfully ridiculed by co-host Angela Yee in some random video.

Last night’s concert, where the big story was no Jay Z and Lil Wayne performance which was supposed to be the highlight of the evening. Otherwise looks like a good show.
