Our dear friend, BDR, addressed the article we wrote yesterday.

Bossip, the photo you ran is of Jessica Rosenblum, a long time friend and businesswoman/hip hop party promoter. The woman who was referred as the “blonde bust down” is another friend of mine, supermodel Veronica Varekova (pictured above).

As the Editor and Chief of globalgrind.com I am constantly checking on my site. There, I find myself surfing ********.com, bossip.com and all of the other fun gossip sites daily. I love these sites. I often wonder though if they truly comprehend how much power they have. Millions of people congregate on these gossip sites daily and have dialogue online as part of their daily ritual. Entertainment magazines, television shows and internet sites don’t just rag on what people wear or vote in the “Sexiest Man Alive” – they elect Presidents. That is why the content in those magazines and on those internet sites are so important. What is reported on these sites have the power to either promote negativity, racism and sexism or instead, uplift, unify, educate and create understanding and tolerance among its audience.

As many of you may already be aware, communication is my business. As the Chairman of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, I make it my job to elevate the dialogue between all groups, races and ethnicities. I am excited to see race talked about on these internet sites because it opens up dialogue between people that may not meet walking down the street or at

school. Online, miles or countries apart, we can all exchange views, communicate and understand each other better. So, to the editors of these sites (which often go for the easy racial joke or the mean spirited quick

laugh) I ask you to consider this: with the right content, attitude and fair reporting you can contribute to the online community changing the world. You can make it a better place. I hope that all websites, especially the ever so popular gossip sites in particular, truly understand the power they have and use their power for good. I hope that everyday we will get just a little bit closer to promoting positivity, tolerance and love. It’s in your hands.

Uncle Russ, all we have to do is look at the pic above to see how serious you are about “elevating the dialogue between all groups, races and ethnicities.” You really get your hands dirty and lead by example. It’s all in jest, ya’ll know we got love for big homie.

On a serious note, How do ya’ll feel about BDR’s message?

    Maybe ill get me a swirl thing going, have my nipple pulled out, let some yoga moves get thrown down and start some wonderful “race relations” like uncle russ. Maybe he wants his daughters to get some good ole’ dark meat, let him fondle her on the beach for some race relations.

    Okay…I feel silly for checking these sites. Embarassingly, for my snobby, graduate degree holding ass, I find them kind of fun. Not at all important. I actually come on here and laugh at black celebrities — even the ones I like. Isn’t that the purpose? I never in a million years thought that anyone took these sites seriously. I can’t believe Russell Simmons actually took the time…oh wait. I do believe it. Maybe that’s why I laugh at him all the time.

  • Raquel26

    IT DON’T REALLY MATTER CAUSE ALL HIS WOMEN ARE JUST PAID BEARDS. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE RUS GIVE BACK TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY BY HIRING A COUPLE OF BLACK BEARDS. YOUR GAY ASS MADE MILLIONS OFF BLACKS BUT IN THE END YOU GIVE BACK TO WHITES.

    THAT ONE PAID BEARD NAME PORTIA COULDN’T STOMACH THE JOB. EVEN IN THIS BAD ECONOMY SHE GOT THE PHUCK ON & SAID SHE WILL WORK A 9 TO 5.

    Let me set this one off yall. I am an African-American woman, voter, tax-payer with a Masters degree in African-American studies. Historically, let’s take a look at Mr. Russell Simmons. He is a hip-hop icon, yes. He has taken hip-hop from obscurity to a mainstream, publicly traded, billions of dollars a year, respected mega industry. However, he has reputation for being a womanizer “Russ, well, he was able to bring the ‘hoe’ out in the ladies” -(See: Behind the Music)He is not the FIRST (See: Quincy Jones) when you are in the public eye, we will look at how you conduct yourself publicly and make judgment on those actions. Millions of people are more tuned in to your blatant displays of wealth and ‘opulence’ (i.e. tackiness) more so than the philanthropic services that you manage. Millions of us were TOTALLY turned off by the wastefulness and pure tackiness of the countless Cribs episodes with you and your former wife Kimora Lee and how it portrays us-black folks as fools with money, getting gold toilet seats and crap, instead of making sure that regions of the earth that don’t have sewage system can get the help they need to build and maintain their infrastructures. Russell Simmons, we do judge you harshly, but it is a love/hate relationship. Think of the American public as that cousin that while you may have made it, brotha we gonna keep it 100% with you and let you know you are not beyond comment. Think of us as your grassroots PR, while every body else you have around you are paid Yes-Men, hell we ain’t getting no check from ya, so we don’t give a damn about how you don’t like us commenting on milky tits, yo home-girl, or how you seem to have an endless supply of Afro-Jap, Mestizo, 20-something disposable girlfriends. Consider yourself blessed homeboy, if yo ass was Russell Simmons the Bus driver, you wouldn’t have those types of chics at your disposal…don’t get it twisted!

    It just make me sick to see any black man constantly share there wealth, power and knowledge with a race that was never deprived of it. They call us ghetto, but we are a race that has a little over 40 years of intergration.Yes we have come a mighty long way (PRESIDENT BARACK),but alot of us are still a product of the intergration mind set.Lets be fair to all .When a white women has a lot of kids and is vocal she is Sarah Palin.When a black women has alot of kids and is vocal.She’s ghetto

  • ♥Ayita Loves Adam♥

    I don’t care that he dates other types of women. Why is this important anyway?

    I want to see another Obama post.

  • http://comcast uncle russ

    You black women will believe anything that I say, that’s because you think that I will get your hair done… I still love white women, just look at all of my dates…

  • Lauren

    All I read is blah blah blah….

    read that Russ…

  • ♥Ayita Loves Adam♥

    @ uncle russ, is your posting on this site is a attempt to stay relevant? Who cares?

    Where’s my Obama/Michelle post?
