A man who legally changes his name to that probably has a few deep-seeded issues.

Yeah. Right. Did tou see the anger in his eyes? The rage? You'd of thought he learned from his 73 game suspension earlier in his career. Once a Scumbag, Alway a Scumbag!! Tap Tap

Wow.......Everything America sees about LA is tragic and disgusting. The City is a National disgrace. What a pathetic place to raise a family. I really feel sorry for anyone who is stuck in that Hole.

I couldn't agree more. Throw in the fact that 25% or more of the inhabitants are Illegal and you start to understand why.

The way you feel about those "inhabitants" is the way many people feel about your kind who supersede that percentage you just dished out. Just saying...stay black brotha'.

Who in their right mind would want to get in the way or bump Artest when he's all fired up especially if you know his past?

I'm an OKC fan and even I can see what Hardin was trying to do. He was trying to give Artest a lil body bump and play mind games but Hardin should know Artest does not play. Is it right what Artest did? No. Should Hardin and everyone else know better or know what to expect from Artest? Yes.

It's 50/50 in my book. I guarantee Hardin will NEVER do that to Artest again though.

The only people that have any right whatsoever to gripe about their situation are the "Native Americans".

Mexico has never had their country or land stolen from them even though some of them think it but a war was fought and won and they lost. People of color still have America and Africa to call home.

What you should try to understand is that we're(USA)the melting pot for a reason. Different races and cultures and beliefs in one nation could never all get along could we? Hardly. While we all bicker and fight and kill each other our attention is diverted from the real atrocities being done to us behind our backs.

He needs to be in a mental institution, the man's case of bipolarism is serious.

I agree with you but after changing his name to Metta World Peace, one would think he could handle the pressure that smart players will inflict in him. At the end of the day, he is Ron Artest, The NBA Thug of all times! I know, he lived less than 1 mile from me when he played for the Sacramento Kings. He is abusive on and off the court.

I think his name change was a joke(How can World Peace be so violent?)waiting to happen and I like Artest but you can see the conflict between what he knows is right and what he really wants to do in his facial expressions alone. He grew up hard in arguably the roughest neighborhood in America and had to show no fear or softness.

He reminds me a lot of Mike Tyson. They've both been through hell and back growing up and had to literally fight for everything they had. It's their foundation but they've both cried out for love numerous times. I just hope Artest continues to get healthier mentally and finds his balance because apparently on Artest's good days, he's the nicest person in the world.

I should note that I worded it that way for a reason.

Now, either your African Amercian or your someone who is encapsulated by their culture. Either way,, my point here is that while you point out a specific group, others, infact many, see that culture as a major factor in this countries downward spiral.

NOT that Im saying that's what the problem actually is. you dig?

So by pointing out that 25% of those "inhabitants" is the sole reason for Cali's problems, well, the same could be said for your "Kind" who are NOT illegals..and OTHERS.

Were in this mess together.

I get your drift. I'm as caucasian as they come and I don't try to be black. I do see it BOTH ways though (to your point)
That not all sides want to "blend". In other words, Hispanics, Blacks, Chinese are racist too.
