"You cannot blame people for coming up with conspiracy theories," Air America host Chuck D. said, after he was asked Thursday about the paranoid pronouncement by MSNBC's Tucker Carlson.Even after a third try, ChuckD stayed the course. Then, Tucker turned to Rachel, who had this to say:
"They look on television and see that the government is four days late in saving people [who are] supposed to be their citizens," Chuck D. explained.
Carlson gave him a second chance to denounce Farrakhan's lunatic declaration, saying, "You're a smart guy. You know that white people didn't blow up the levees to kill black people. You've gotta know that didn't happen."
But the Air America host refused to budge, insisting instead that there was a chance Farrakhan could be right.
"Conspiracy theories don't necessarily help but you have to understand where they come from... They come from people feeling like this disaster had a real racial component. I mean, it was a majority-black city that was absolutely abandoned by the country."

I keep telling people that Louis missed what that 25-foot crater really was. Hey Farrakhan, that was the mother ship landing! You know, that spaceship that is supposed to whisk all of you away in some all-black rapture. Aren't you paying attention?

It's hard to understand why AAR isn't profitable...

"absolutely abandoned by the country", makes you wonder why the country is hussling around breaking their backs trying to donate everything they have extra for.

You guys are pathetic.... if you're not careful maybe the President will send a typhoon to the radio station and wipe it away. After all, the republicans have an Anti-Liberal-Democrap machine that can wisk away Democraps at will. Please take Fara'garbage'kan and Randi with you.
