                  My perspective about Terry Crews decision to make a big deal about what happened is: The disrespectful way he was grabbed in the presence of his wife! I believe the public disrespect to him and his wife caused him to handle it the way he did and maybe that wasn’t the first time that the old buzzard came at Crews that way. I get it.

                      Just to let you know, Abraham Lincoln is the second most written about second to Jesus Christ ONLY. Mikes loss of childhood was a choice , but that choice made him larger than life. Mike was LARGE, but not that large. Only by fans, also known as fanatics. You are right they are GOLDDIGGERS. They WILL get YOU if they can.

                                        1) Vlad was trying so hard to bait Deon into ignorance. It was cringe worthy and he is the absolute worst.
                                        2) Deon is my dude. A thinker and wouldn't be baited.

                                          I really like the fact that vlad interviews intelligent people, because he is the worst interviewer. What information can you gain from asking a man, 'what would you do if a gay man grabbed your genitals"? Michael Jai White and Deon Cole should have never entertained that question.

                                                  The thing nick cannon said is totally correct. R. Kelly has special needs he’s learning disabled and as a Teachers Aide, for Chicago Public Schools, almost all incidences of police shooting and these child molestation cases involved someone who had special needs. From autism to emotionally disturbed and ADHD all these cases show that. They don’t get concepts well, like legal and financial issues hell, some of these people can’t drive because they don’t understand any road signs except stop. Some of these people didn’t even know that drivers licenses expired! They are mentally, most times, only at an 8th grade level at MAX. It’s sad and that is one of the other reasons that R. Kelly doesn’t have money, he only understands a lot or a little. Just like Mike Tyson, special needs, only understands a lot of money or a little money. It’s so sad because if they didn’t have talent, they would be in prison. R. Kelly is really sad because he doesn’t understand a lot and the “friends” around him took advantage of that ineptitude and took money off him.

                                                          I'm bugged out about the mentality of the dude who grabbed his junk o mean Terry is a black scheazenner

Deon why you let that fool bait you into that shit? Vlad you're a cornball. You comparing Terry's situation in which he has to work in an industry where those in power are sexually assualting him to some random dude biting your shoulder because you obvi give off mad gay vibes. False equivalency you moron. And why you so damn obsessed with Terry? Vlad just come out the closet.

I love the way Deon thinks; good to know I'm not the only person who likes to look at everything from both sides, no matter what my personal opinion or view of right and wrong may be.
