Celebrities Called Sellouts

Ever since the days of black face and blaxploitation, we've all been trying to make sure that not too many celebrities go out in the world and embarrass us. It's a tough task because so many people are out there trying to earn some quick money no matter how much they set black people back. Here are some celebrities accused of setting us all back...did they all deserve the criticism?
Flavor-Flav-and-the-girls Flavor Flav - His show was an embarrassment, but it's hard to reconcile that with the fact he was also a member of Public Enemy.
Tyler Perry's Atlanta studio caught fire last night Tyler Perry - People like Spike Lee don't take too kindly to Perry running around dressed like a woman and saying "Hallelujerrrr."
Marlon Wayans Celebrates His 39th Birthday In Miami With Brother Shawn The Wayans Brothers - They've been accused of making comedy that set us back, especially back when White Girls came out.
Condoleeza Condoleeza Rice - She was on George Bush's cabinet. Nothing says "sellout" like that...or does it?
herman cain gloria cain Herman Cain -He was an embarrassment to black politics...good thing that was done.
50-Soulja-Boy-Postimage1 Soulja Boy - His music was absolutely ridiculous and people said he was cooning his music. SMH.
chris tucker mug shot Chris Tucker - Remember 5th Element? He was wearing the wig and acting a little too crazy? He got a lot of criticism as setting black characters back. But it launched his career.
jar jar binks Jar Jar Binks - He's not real but boy did this character set people back big time. It breaks our hearts to see Star Wars so racist.
