D.L. Hughley may be a
king of comedy, but many women won't be laughing when they hear his latest
The actor and comedian, speaking on NPR while promoting his new book I Want You to
Shut the Fawk Up: How the Audacity of Dopes is Ruining America, had this to
say about Black women:

with Young Jeezy, Meek Mill says he's determined to stay out of
the fray. In a recent interview with Mr. Peter Parker, the Philadelphia native said
that where he's from, beef is not something you play around with.
"I don't participate in none of that," he said of the Ross/Jeezy rivalry.
"Me, I advise them to chill before somebody gets killed and they be having ten
rappers on a song talking about making the rest in peace tribute."
Meek said he's seen how words can turn to violence and that he would much
rather focus on business.
"I've seen bad things in my hood. I know kids that in the middle of a battle,
start shooting over a battle rap…it makes no sense. It's senseless. I might not
even be one of them, it might be their homies. We come from senseless places
