    Pimp C is free
    December 31, 2005

    All those ''Free Pimp C" T-shirts and baseball caps can be put away. Rap star Pimp C (above) -- half of the acclaimed duo Underground Kingz, or UGK -- was released on parole yesterday after serving about half of an eight-year sentence. Since he was imprisoned in January 2002, ''Free Pimp C" has been a rallying call for rappers and UGK fans across the country. Numerous rap stars have appeared in music videos and at concerts and awards shows wearing gear with the phrase. Pimp C, whose real name is Chad Butler, was sentenced when he fell behind on community service required after pleading no contest to aggravated assault. He was charged after brandishing a gun during an argument with a woman at a mall. Pimp C, who turned 32 Thursday, has sold more than a million records since 1992 from five major-label releases with UGK

    lets see:

    according to what you say, he gets in an argument with a woman and pulls a gun. he gets community service and cannot keep up with that.

    he spend four years inside because he cannot control a freaken argument!

    he may be a great rapper but he sounds like an immature and dangerous human being. would you want your children around him?
    i think we would be better off putting our energy behind someone a little more positive to support. suppose that gun had gone off?
    brothers need to be settin a better example and be more manly in the community. i don't support no pimp.

    I agree


    Great, now we have Pimp C walking around again. Hey, let's just free every black man and woman and have a big @ss party on Martin Luther King's birthday for god's sake. We know what Pimp C did to get his butt thrown into jail, but what good has the man done when he was free? Nevermind, I can probably answer that myself.

    After reading some of the "pimp" threads, I thought I might bring this back up. It is crazy how we are against "pimping," but then support this "pimp." As a young black man, I choose not to let people like this represent me.

    Did I miss something in the news report?

    I'd like to know the reasons why supporters of this man find it worthy to celebrate his release from prison? Was he put there on false charges just because he was Black?

    I understand that it's reported that there are a disproportionate number of Black men in prison than men of other races, but because of that are we to assume that all of them are innocent, protest their release and welcome them all back into our communities with open arms?

    Is there nothing a Black person can do that is just plain wrong and causes them to deserve punishment?

    Does "racism" dissolve all guilt of a Black person?

    Curious....
