First, I like Kat Williams, I think he is one seriously funny dude. (All four feet three inches of him.) And folks need to keep in mind that he is, first and foremost, an entertainer.
But Kat got it wrong when he went all Captain America on that Mexican American heckler at a recent show in Arizona. (Memo to the public: If you pay money to see a comedian and happen to be sitting where he or she can see you, try not to heckle or be noticed, you will lose that battle every time. Just remember who has the microphone.) The man should have kept his mouth shut and Kat had every right to call him out, but the U.S.A. U.S.A. chants were a bit much.
Kat suffers from what so many other African Americans and poor people suffer from in this country: misplaced anger. Beating up on immigrants and poor Mexicans is not going to improve your condition in this country, and they are not the reason that your life is f*&^%d up. But this is what the folks who have real power want you to believe, and they want you to keep beating up on each other. That way you won't take notice of them and all the f*&^%d up s&^t that they are doing to keep you where you are.
Mexicans don't come to school every day and take away your books. Mexicans don't follow your kids home from school and play on the PlayStation with them all night causing them to forget to do their damn homework.
Mexicans don't give your kids soft drinks and potato chips for breakfast. They don't impregnate your women and keep getting up. And they sure as hell aren't responsible for prosecuting your children with bull s&^t crimes which leave them with criminal records for the rest of their lives, while little Johnny in the suburbs is being given ARD type programs.
Many of you won't like this, because, like Kat, you have bought into a false narrative being sold to you by a strange alliance of conservative blacks and left leaning activist. But, as Kat himself likes to say: it's real talk.
"If y'all had California and you loved it, then you shouldn't have given that mothaf*cka up. You should have fought for California, goddamnit, since you love it..
Because you think I'm dissing Mexico and I'm defending America. Are you Mexican? Do you know where Mexico is? No this ain't Mexico, it used to be Mexico, motherf*cker, and now it's Phoenix, goddammit. USA! USA!
F*ck you back, n*gga. i bet you dont even go to mexico, motha f*cka... no n*gga, do you know where you at? USA! USA! I dont give a f*ck. no n*gga, this is my hood... [security comes] F*ck him! Mothaf*ckas think they can live in this country and pledge allegience to another country... do you remember when white people used to say go back to Africa? And we'd have to tell them we dont want to? So if you love Mexico, bitch, get the f*ck over there! [breaks into the National Anthem]..
We were slaves bitch, you just all work like that at the landscapers... It's not even racial -- you're a bitch! I don't give a f*ck what race that is, that's a p*ssy."
Maybe Kat should watch this video. I am sure he would learn something. Or, maybe not. And do we really want him to? He is, after all, just a comedian. It's just that some of his
