My mother taught me not to laugh at things like this or I would be considered "Racist"

Wow, that is amazing...that people are still interviewing DMX!

I'm almost as equally humbled by DMX's stunning mental prowess as I am his mastery of the subtleties of the English language.

And you have to wonder about the idiots who buy this guy's albums and/or concert tickets and thereby provide him with a presumably quite comfy living.

I think in this case you get a pass, because I'd laugh at him for saying that ign'ant shit no matter what color he was. In fact, if he wasn't black, I'd probably call him racist for saying that shit, and still laugh at him too.
