  1. He definitely has the right to say what he wants and he is also right about repercussions. Maybe he would have hit him if he were somewhere else like he said but that also comes with repercussions

    • He can say what he wants, but the kid can’t wear what he wants? Uh, yeah, that makes so much sense. Foh.

    • There were repercussions. Just not for the kid, or his parents. They kept it moving while Tone Def was in cuffs.

    • The American flag was once too dnt forget that…learn the American history because imo the American flag has more blood on it than the confederate one…just research the manifest destiny and you’ll see why the American flag is just as disgusting as the confederate one

    • +Pornnelius Hubbard It’s not treason if you win. It’s revolution. The US is still around. The flag has the chance to represent many things, including the things that we strive to become. The Confederacy is gone. The flag can represent nothing but what they were.

  2. Tone loc hut hard times. Funky Cold Medina money ran out.ends up with a small Midland Texas airport arguing at a baggage carousel yelling at kids wearing truck stop souvenir hats. Looks like he’s on some crack it needs a healthy meal.

  3. So mf what if its passed to another generation. You cant stop racist people from being racist by confrontation. Ignore them. Live and let live.

  4. Tone Loc Is An🕺🏾O.G. 2 All These Youngsters Who Claim They Haven’t Heard Of His Name😒( He Played On A Show Called Roc Dat Aired On Fox Right After His Decent Run From Doin Hip Hop😎)

  5. they r gonna en slave negros again
    thy alrdy have. only a remnant, a remnant………

  6. The high school in Midland Texas is Midland Lee…..their mascot is the rebel. He was wearing a school hat.

  7. I don’t care for that rebel flag but it doesn’t belong on government buildings. With that said, I think tone loc is wrong for confronting someone’s kid that way. I get why he feels that way but it was wrong.
