And it’s 100% true.
That’s right, Adam Carolla went off on mainstream media sources like the Huffington Post who have portrayed him as a racist for claiming that the socioeconomic issues plaguing the African American and Latino communities are rooted in the lack of a two-parent household.
In his original comments, Carolla said, “The family is the number one problem in the Black community. […] It’s simple. Fathers, stay at home, raise your family, do your homework with your kids, put an emphasis on education like the Jews, like the Asians, and let’s see what happens to the problem in 20 years.”
Huffington Post described the conversation as “hairy” and used the headline “Adam Carolla To Gavin Newsom: What’s Wrong With Blacks And Latinos?” to make it appear like Carolla was making a racially charged attack on the two groups.
Carolla responded the the article on Friday. He said:
Well, let me now take this moment to talk to all the [ BLEEP ] that are out there trying to stir things up and turn me into a racist. I got news for you. Me saying parents should stick around and raise their children, me saying families and cultures should focus on education is not radical or revolutionary. It’s the [ BLEEP ] truth. Now, you guys all want to line up behind cowards like Gavin Newsom and put your full support behind a guy who’s doing what? For whom? What is he doing? All Gavin Newsom is doing is telling us the system is broken. By the way, you are the system, Gavin Newsom! You and all your [ BLEEP ] people are one big system and it’s broken. It’s like the [ BLEEP ] crew chief saying, “No, no, it’s not the driver. It’s the car. The car’s broken.” Well, you’re the crew chief. Yeah, yeah, the car’s broken. Well, fix the car! It’s not the driver. Okay, it’s not the driver. Then it’s the system. You are the system, Gavin Newsom. Fix the system. But you won’t fix the system because you know what it takes to fix the system, and you’re a [ BLEEP ] coward. And guys like Huffington Post, you guys [ BLEEP ] line up behind these people. And let me tell you something. You guys all have blood on your hands because the problem could be fixed. It’s a problem. And it’s a problem that involves bodies. People die every year. There’s people getting shot. There’s brown people shooting other brown people on the streets of Chicago every [ BLEEP ] day of the week and you guys sit there silently. If it was the Sandy Hook situation or anything else, you’d be all up in arms, but you can’t say a word. So you sit there with your [ BLEEP ] coward hands over your [ BLEEP ] cowardly little soup coolers. And then when somebody has the guts to say something, to speak the truth for [ BLEEP ] one hot second, you jump up his ass and call him a racist. Thus you silent the media, now you perpetuate the problem.
“Absolutely true,” Glenn said. “And I find it refreshing and remarkable.”
