2). I was drawn to this site because you used CoCo's pic. I think she's hella fine personally. Don't care about her race or her "plastic" parts. Seems like you shouldn't use that pic if you hate them so much, kinda disingenuous to profit from the views if you're not down with them, no?
3). Mixed people will never get the benefit of being fully accepted by their white peers, so that's got to count for some street cred at least. I mean they may not have it as hard as a full black person in some aspects but it's not like they are getting an easy ride either.
4). Ice-T has a career that depends largely on sponsors. The same reason why NBC dumped Donald Trump for talking greasy about Mexicans is probably the same reason Ice-T dumped you for talking greasy about white people and Jewish people.
5). Just do you and carve out your own niche. There are tons of hateful and angry people who will hang on your every word.
Richard Patrick Bennett OD, better known by the stage name Charlie Chaplin, is a Jamaican dancehall and ragga deejay and singer. It was common for Jamaican deejays of the era to name themselves after film stars or characters. Bennett, however, had been nicknamed after the comedian since his youth. His career began in 1980 when he began working with U-Roy's Stur-Gav Hi-Fi collective. He became extremely popular throughout Jamaica, memorable for his focus on cultural and social themes instead of the "slack" (rough, violent) lyrics that were popular at the time. His popularity as a live performer prompted Roy Cousins to produce some recording sessions with the young DJ. Chaplin's debut album was the Cousins-produced Presenting Charlie Chaplin in 1982, with several albums following for the producer over the next three years.
The contrast between Chaplin's "culture" lyrics and the other major deejays of the day led to the 1984 "clash" album with Yellowman Slackness Vs Pure Culture.
Que Dem (1985), was produced by George Phang and he continued recording, working with Bunny Roots, Josey Wales, Sly & Robbie, Henry "Junjo" Lawes, Roots Radics and Doctor Dread.
In 2013, Bennett was awarded the Order of Distinction by the Jamaican government.

The author, Joel Z. Williams, joined the U.S. Air Force at the age of eighteen and served as an enlisted man during Gulf War I. After completing his four-year commitment, Mr. Williams separated honorably from the military and worked a variety of jobs before deciding to use his G.I Bill to pay for college. In 2000, he began attending Missouri State University with intentions of becoming a high school teacher. A year later, the dramatic events of 9/11 profoundly affected Mr. Williams and he redirected his studies away from Education and towards understanding the world’s rapidly changing geopolitical dynamics by majoring in History and Political Science. Mr. Williams graduated from MSU with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History during the summer of 2006; he has completed several freelance writing projects and began a small business since that time.
Even before graduating from college, Mr. Williams began writing letters to the editor and opinion / editorial pieces to his local newspaper, the Springfield News-Leader about issues relating to Islamic fundamentalism and regarding the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. After publishing ten of his op/ed pieces, the News-Leader invited Mr. Williams to serve on its Editorial advisory board, a position which allowed him to conduct an interview with Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO).
Mr. Williams has since written several papers on military affairs and Islam; two issues he knows extremely well. In 2005, he penned a white paper entitled: A Calculated Risk: A Fresh Perspective on How the United States Could Win the War on Terror and in 2006 he authored, The Evolution of a Viable Military Strategy: How technological advances combined with a more ideologically agile military could help the U. S. overcome the threat of asymmetric warfare by using a process of constantly evolving Principles of War known simply as Warmobbing. Mr. Williams submitted the latter work in a competition sponsored by the US Naval Society and although he only managed to get to the seventeenth slot during the final selection process, the American Naval Institute chose Warmobbing for publication in their quarterly newsletter Proceedings. Mr. Williams has also recently submitted a twenty page white paper entitled, Fighting the Good Fight: How Culturally Specific Gifts for Civilians Offers Warfighters Asymmetric Advantages in Modern Conflicts to the U.S. Marine Corps for publication in their quarterly magazine, The Marine Corps Gazette. In addition to his non-fiction work, Mr. Williams has completed twenty chapters of a military- espionage thriller called A Rational Fear: Project Snakecharmer that he hopes to complete by April 2009.
In August of 2008, Mr. Williams started a small business called Products for Peaceful Operations (PROPs) with the intent of supplying inexpensive, regionally appropriate, and culturally sensitive civilian gifts for distribution by U.S. Defense Department personnel. Mr. Williams envisioned PROPs as a way to equip American warfighters operating in contested areas with small, useful gifts that they could carry and distribute to civilians, thereby, fostering goodwill and friendship between soldiers and civilians through the gifting process.
