LL Cool J
NEW YORK, NY - MAY 13: Rapper/actor LL Cool J attends Gray Line New York's 'Ride Of Fame' Induction Ceremony Honoring LL Cool J at Pier 78 on May 13, 2013 in New York City.
My prayers go out to all the people in Boston, and I want to commend them for the way they've stuck together and the unity they've shown during this time ... It's just proof of how important it is for us as Americans to get along and to really come together as one.
I don't mean to impugn the motives behind those who make films like '42': There's no problem, in principle, with a white filmmaker making a movie about a black cultural hero, or vice versa ... But if we're going to have a conversation about race in America, I'd rather it revolve around the awkward, even offensive Brad Paisley/LL Cool J collaboration 'Accidental Racist' than around the sanitized pieties of a movie like 42, which tiptoes so reverently around its subject it leaves no room for accidents at all.More quotes »
