But that doesn't mean there aren't racial and cultural tensions still.

My instinct, though, is to say that nothing productive can be said or exchanged in the context of this trial. It's one of those "the media evokes our tribal savage / pack animal mentality because it's profitable and exciting" moments. I think there's actually very little cultural substance to this trial. What little there is is attributable to the state and future of America's gun culture, not racial profiling and such things. Maybe I'm wrong. But I think nobody cares if you're black, Akon, and you've probably got a better shot at prosperity here than in Africa, which has about as much cultural affinity to most American blacks as Finland does.

Wrong.

Celebrities are in general complete retards but this is just too much. This situation has exposed a lot of people as the idiots they are. People are acting like children and seem to have no control over their emotions.

Lol.

Akon is more entertaining than kanye when it comes to seeking attention/jackass things.

- Humped a 15 year old girl on stage
- Smacked some b!tch up
- Fukking mad chicks while he's got multiple wives back in Senegal
- Complete spectrum of simpin' type songs (I wanna make love na na na/Mr Lonely)<----------> pure gangsta songs (Soul Survivor, Lokcked Up)
- Outlandish Walton-esque comments.

What a memorable character!

Nah, getting stalked by a fat middle-aged power-obsessed b!tch is what got him killed.

Or maybe African-Americans with social influence should use their notoriety to promote family and education instead of crime and misogyny.

Yes, very tragic indeed. That specific incident, like many within that region of Nigeria was incited by those savage militants, Boko Haram. Attacking schools is one of their go-to tactics to contend the educational system from teaching anything 'Western' related...
