            You all just basically lied on Stephen King. When you "cry wolf" with racism you damage your own credibility.

                    This is a bad donkey of the day... I think King was saying art is art. Doesn't matter who's doing it, good art is good art and bad art is bad art. Lenard was reaching with this one.

                      Jeez these people are overreaching today
                      They must be bored or they ran out of content
                      Stephen King would probably right the best black horror flick of he chose to but I don't think he's thinking about that shit when he's trying to be creative

                            Charlamagne you reaching for this one. He doesn't care about diversity, because at the end of the day whatever you look like, you need to be talented period.

                              He made a "clean up tweet?" I don't think a tweet that ends mid-sentence and continues a minute later can count as any sort of cleanup especially in response to backlash. Y'all just making things up.

                                    I feel you on your POV but honestly stfu man, what really needs to happen is that black people need to support black people like they support white people. Black needs to be the pinnacle of quality and excellence in the eyes of black folks. We need to support each other and when we do it won’t be called racist it’ll be called preference. If Stephen Kings preference is white, good for him. Glad we know it for the record now. But for ever Stephen king out in the world there’s a black king that deserves the same if not greater praise, prestige, and recognition. Why we act offend when white people show their prejudice? This ain’t nothin new???? All I’m saying is black people need to be more concerned with lifting each other up than trying to get an apology out of the white man when he does what he always does. It’s a fruitless and meaningless cry for validation.

                                        I mean for a novelist for Stephen King who's consider "white". I mean we don't know if he was expose to much diversity, but it could be bad. I mean he writes in the mind of characters, he writes in situations where he clarify a certain universe and if the cast needs to be so diverse why even make the story, you know what I mean. If, the story is going to be explore more than do the diverse characters or places in the beginning or introduce them later on, I don't think there need to be a diverse cast of characters if one place or event is to diverse in the setting of ideals.

                                                      Stephen king has created some of the strongest diverse characters in literature.

I believed he was trying to say that the diversity without purpose is pointless. Also to focus on the individual and allowing something like race or gender to overshadow the individual's work or worth. If that makes sense.

I really hate these people that think they are in charge of me, and I hate all of the people in Media. If I'm racist because of my skin color then so are you. When I hear about stuff like this I just see nothing but stupid sheep with nothing better to do, then to burn the world around them because they didn't like the hand that they were dealt when they were born. The only thing anyone has control over is how they interact with the people around them, and how they make the world a better place moving forward. I had nothing to do with what happened 200 years ago and neither did any of you. You all are stupid f****** sheep

Especially if they're looking at elections with skin color as a part of their voting base. If rich white people are terrible, then you should probably be voting against them. Instead of letting them tell you that guns are bad, and pot is good and centralized government where only the cops have guns is a good thing. Nothing I see right now is a good thing, and I know a lot of you guys feel the same f****** way

The same people who oh no heaven forbid rich white people are in charge. I'd rather vote on somebody based on their Merit as a human being than their skin color, or how much Goddamn money that they make because they're Democrats and wow you can only get into the Democratic party if you make so much money
