Taxing tidbits in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Wesley Snipes is griping he’s being charged with federal tax evasion because he’s Black. Snipes’ lawyers argued that prosecutors filed more charges against the actor and let two co-defendants slide with fewer charges because they’re “Caucasian, while Mr. Snipes is African-American.” Snipes probably wishes he was in the black.
• Hillary Clinton wishes she were in the Black and Brown, as the presidential candidate is stumping hard with minority women. Clinton’s campaign scheduled a meeting today with 300 “women of color” to raise funds and support. If Clinton really wants to impress the ladies, she’ll invite Wesley Snipes. Or husband Bill.
• Another up-and-coming rapper was gunned down and killed. Rayquon Elliott, aka Stack Bundles, was shot at his housing project in Queens, New York. The artist recently released a CD with Brian Wilson (not of Beach Boys fame) titled, “Riot or Die.” Guess he won’t be rioting.
