Katt Williams Apologizes for Telling Hispanic Guy to Go Back to Mexico, "Nigga." Plans to Meet With Civil Rights Leaders -- Possibly at New Times Building

Katt Williams is sorry for telling a Hispanic guy to go back to Mexico, "nigga."
After pressure from Valley civil rights leaders, comedian Katt Williams has apologized for the anti-Hispanic rant he spewed during a performance in Phoenix last week.

"My remarks were not to be offensive. I want to apologize if my comedy act was taken out of context. I sincerely appreciate my fans within the Mexican community and would never intentionally go out of my way to offend them," Williams says in a statement released today.

Civil rights advocate Reverend Jarrett Maupin was the first to call for Williams to apologize for the tirade (which you can see below). We spoke to Maupin this morning; he says he accepts Williams' apology.

"I accept his apology. I think the community's accepts his apology," Maupin tells New Times. "But he's gonna have to do more than just apologize."

Williams, Maupin says, claims to be an advocate for immigration reform. According to Maupin, Williams has agreed to meet with him and other leaders to discuss putting some action behind his words.

Williams' only problem: he doesn't want to meet with leaders at a church. Maupin's solution: have the meeting in the New Times conference room, which is possibly the furthest thing from a religious institution in the Valley.

We'll keep you posted about the meeting. In the meantime, watch Katt Williams' anti-Hispanic tirade -- one more time -- below.

Katt Williams is a racist idiot. He wants to be white and is getting skin treatments to acomplish that just like the freak Michael Jackson.  Now he is faking an apology, screw that mayate.

I am mexican and use to watch all of your comedy but after hearing this, I can guarantee you that never again will I listen or go to any of your shows. I understand that you are a comedian but you took it too far and It sounded to me like it was personal. I will make sure to show this to all of my family and friends and beleive me we are mexicans and that means we are a lot. I feel sorry for your ratings because they will be going down. Very disappointed in TEXAS....

Oh for fuck's sake.  Get over yourselves.  He's a fucking comedian and the man makes fun of everyone pretty damn equally.  It's amazing to see who gets all fucking butt hurt over it.

First mistake Mr. Williams is making is apologizing. The reason is, he's going to grovel to the wrong kind of Mexican/Hispanic groups. Most of the Mexican/hispanic people that went to his show, saw nothing wrong with his "comedy" act. He's making a big mistake.

When taken in context Katt Williams was right on with all that he said. No apology necessary for what he said in my opinion. But for those whom are politically correct how he said it the only questionable thing. THE REAL PROBLEM HERE is the fact Mexican groups like "MEChA", "LaRaza", "LULAC", etc have been politically changing our country for 3-4 decades. They even go as far as improperly (& illegally) teaching Mexican kids in public schools to be Racist, Separatist, Militant, Communist, Violent and use Revolutionary Subversion in order to achieve Insurrection against  America. Yes I can prove it. SEE FOR YOURSELF:http://www.constitutionalvoice...http://www.illegalimmigrationc...

Katt Williams makes fun of all races.  He's hardest on African-Americans, like Dave Chappell.  What did that guy expect to see at a Katt Williams show, Bob Hope?

This has been squashed. The Mexican / Mexican-American Communities thruout this Country got what it wanted. That was for Mr. Williams to eat his words. Will I go see Mr. Williams ? NO.  Will I see his show on T.V.? NO. Will the Mexican/Mexican-American vote for Obama now ? Believe or not Racism teach Racism. Payback is a bitch. It doesn't matter who is President, Hispanics always get put back on the back burner. Obama re-elected ? The Hispanic Community will not vote for him like the last time.

Obama should award Katt Williams the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award for putting that degenerate Mexican mongoloid in is place! Mr. Williams beautifully encapsulated the sentiments of the vast majority of Americans including THIS LATINO who are embarrassed, dismayed and disgusted by the presence of so many illegal aliens in this great country. Mr. Williams should spit in the dishonorable face of Reverend Maupin and all other traitors like him. As for that fat Mexican pussy in the audience, one can only hope that ICE has apprehended his paleolithic inbred ass and kicked it back to the country is belongs in! What a scum bag. Go Katt!

Are you serious!?!?!?!? So does this mean every comic in the United States needs to apologize for there Jokes?!?!? Get over it people. Stop taking everything people say so serious! This is what is wrong with the world today. Everyone has a poor me attitude! It was a joke thousands of comedians make racist jokes and they dont apologize! Its all over the T.V. on shows and thats ok to watch?!?!? Or would you all like an apology from the networks too? Look at the positives in life...instead of pointing out all the negatives and maybe the world will start to change.

I am in AZ,150+ years, the USA bought and paid for this land, 27 years mexico owned, on paper, 400 years Spain owned, native Americans came here from some where, they were the first immigrants. Every immigrant group that came to the USA, came to join the American way of life, but not now, every one is _______-American, you can't be a mexican - American, Russian-american. NO room for that, you are an American, or your loyalties belong elsewhere and it is time for you to go..

 "Will the Mexican/Mexican-American vote for Obama now ?"

I was with you up until that point. For me, the only aspect of Obama's "race" that made a difference was the shattering of a glass ceiling and the fact that it pissed off a lot of racists. Apart from that, an oppressor is an oppressor, Black, Brown or White.

I would sure as shit never NOT vote for someone because of the color of their skin. Payback may be a bitch, but racism =ignorance+hate. I won't vote for Obama, but I won't vote for him because he is a warmongering prick, Wall Street's best friend and a solid enemy of the working man.

Ok here is one true history lesson that may pain you. The major difference between Native Americans and Afircan Americans is:

1.) Native Americans once owned  Blacks slaves. (e.g. see the Seminoles, Cherokee, Choctaws etc) and btw, the Seminoles fought along side the Confederate soldiers in the Civil War.2.) Blacks never owned any slaves. They were slaves themselves.3. Native came across the Bering Strait at their own *FREE* will. They were the first to discover this land, hence it became theirs.4.) African-Americans came here by boat as chained slaves.

Mistalee
Mistalee

Oh absolutely. I am certain that even the Hopi and the Navajo came here ages ago in hopes of assimilating with lily-white Amurricans that would some day invade them. The Spaniards? Yeah, them too. They came here in the 1600s in hopes of learning to speak unaccented English and fitting in, listening to Lawrence Welk, eating PB&Js on Wonderbread and Jello salad with shredded carrots and mini-marshmallows in it.

You figured it out! Other peoples are simply failed attempts at being you. Which is why you have the God-given right to dictate who can stay here and who must leave. You are a True American. I salute you with middle finger upraised!

cuz that's all they have and nothing more and they know it.  Mexican descent citizens for generations do not feel the same way and do not like being pushed towards "their people" cuz they are not their people.  The Mexican descent citizens have become part of the fabric of the USA and are culturally mixed and they have no voice right now.  Somos Republicans don't cut it - just another race-based social insecurity club proving themselves to be ideological prostitutes - not what we need more of right now.

A similar group rioted over a cartoon in another nation and caused media to self-censor around the globe.  In a perverse way I do think it is a good thing.  It shows that we the people can have the power, if we would only take it.  We have to get on the same page first.

"Blacks never owned slaves" HAHAHA! OK here's some true history for you....The slave trade started from warring African tribes selling their rivals. Also study the formation of Liberia after freed slaves from the U.S. returned to Africa and enslaved the natives.

Mistalee
Mistalee

 Yes, and you omit mention that the Seminoles provided refuge for many runaway slaves, and accepted them into their tribes. And that the principle slaveowners among the several tribes you name were the progeny of Whites who married Indian women and taught their children the practice of slavery.

Ryan, many people reason the way you do about how to determine the "rightfull" ownership of land. There probably isn't a nation in the world, that was once "owned" or occupied by people different from those that own it now. The crucial point of  Dana Jo's argument is that Americans fought a war and took the land. The law of the world is MIGHT MAKES RIGHT. Sorry but I forgot which Ancient Greek philospher elaborated on this point. As Dana Jo said, after conquering the land, Americans paid 15 million for it, an action most conquerer's in history never took. How much 15 million dollars was back then can be judged by the fact that a beer cost 5 cent, and a loaf of bread about 8cents.  What they should have done is giver the fifteen million to the Indians, for a start..

Bobby

Point 2) is not accurate, since some free blacks in the north, actually did own slaves.

It many interest you to know, that two Phoenix based Reconquista groups have warned many Mexicans that there will be a civil war in the next five years similar to the American Civil War. Yes, one group is called,Neustros Reconquistos, and the other one is called, Chicanos Unidos Arizona. Chicanos Unidos Arizona's spokeshole, Cecilia Maldonado says she doesn't want there to be war, but because Americans stole Mexico's land and the increasing climate of "racism" against Mexican, there may be no way to avoid it.

Well, Comrade Mistalee, it seems these two groups don't care much as to which Indian tribe owned Arizona. Right!

Mistalee

I am not interested in a "reconquista." We have had more than enough conquista already, thank you.

I look forward to deconquista.

Ok, your point is well taken. But my point was in direct with the U.S. history, not that of Africa or elsewhere.

But who are the real "slaves" of today????:

White(for the most part) women in the modern sex slave trade industry.

Illegal aliens working in sweat shops and in filthy White capitalistic factories.

"if you do belong to a tribe, it would embarrass them if you claim them"

(Lol) Your continued idiocy is really cracking me up, man! There is nothing "embarrassing" about being against illegal immigration. Trust me "pendejo". Its only "embarrassing" is if I'm "La Raza" like you where they are claiming that the entire southwest belongs to Mexico. Your big head is too far up your hairy arse. The "generalization" you regurgitate is to label anyone who is against illegal immigration as White "inbred" and Tea Party members. You're too damn ignorant to realize the impact of illegal immigration affecting tribal communities at the southern border and elsewhere. Illegal immigration, which is also closely associated with drug/human smuggling and loitering of tribal lands in the south and the entire Sonoran desert. And in the caves in the mountains, courtesy of your illegal aliens that you love so much. My positions doesn't "embarrass" anyone, especially IC. This is why the O'Odham Nation has garnered the support of YOUR PAL--Rep. Raul Grivijalva soley for the purpose of combating that very problem--illegal immigration on O'Odham lands.

The 2 Tribe I cited is the same as you often do cite the O'odham, are merely--EXAMPLES. Its only 'sad" for you as you keep using O'odham alone. Apparently, they're all you have left for your puny "open borders" defense.

The "Broad generalization" I harbour is combating illegal immigration without retorting to racist laws like SB1070. In other words--CIR. You're just too fucked to realize it or to understand it. And its not limited to the O'odham Nation alone but to the general public as a whole. Including African-American communities.

Sorry "La Raza" but you are failing miserably. Especially if you like to go on and on to reiterate your trite hyperbole how I'm "claiming to speak for everyone and Indians".

You have nothing left, but to resort to infantile mud slinging.

Mistalee

"I won't state my Tribal affiliation on here, out of respect of my Tribe."

So I guess you are the coward. Although I agree, if you do belong to a tribe, it would embarrass them if you claimed them.   You've got nothing except broad generalizations and now you presume to speak for "We the indigenous. " When pinned down you can come up with what, two tribes that have embraced your anti-immigrant stance, and they don't even reside in border states. The Yakama, really? Sad.

"Now back to your meth-pipe you illegal alien bottom feeder."

That's the spirit, you'll be calling me a spic and a wetback any time now! You really should be speaking better about the Tea Party, though, they are your real tribe.

Here you go again showing off your true colors as the real racist that you are. Let's see:You're not only racist towards White people in general. You're racists towards Blacks, Native Americans and anyone else who is against illegal immigration.

"but you are so NOT a tribal member,"

Go ask Tommy Collins, he is the only regular on here who has met me in person. He can confirm this to you. I took part in the Pearce recall petition, since I reside in Pearce's district, so does my family You also have admonished anti-Mormon sentiments several times previously in reference to Russell Pearce. Which also adds to your ever growing list of people/groups you hate. Fuck man, you pretty much fight with everyone! I won't state my Tribal affiliation on here, out of respect of my Tribe. And because I have contacts/family on various Indian reservations, I know where I stand and I strongly stand by those comments. I have lived in both worlds--Indian Country and the White man's society. And from firsthand experience, I can tell illegal immigration affects Indian Country today just as it does everywhere else. We'll see who really full of shit.

You the outsider, are just too clueless and dumb fucked to know what's going on around you. And you think you know it all. But you don't. You site sources that shows nothing that supports your illegal immigration propaganda. You are using the same reference that I should be using against you. You're nothing more than a simple troll who distorts facts to tarnish others positions.

Now back to your meth-pipe you illegal alien bottom feeder.

  Struck a nerve? With your wussy "la raza" nonsense? Not at all, I'm just laughing at you because you are such a lame ass. "We the indigenous?" LOL,  I suppose everybody is indigenous to somewhere, but you are so NOT a tribal member, it's absolutely obvious. The fact that you would try to pose as First Nations is your most pathetic stunt yet.

Give it a rest, you sadsack nativist dick.

Ha ha ha...

I struck a nerve, haven't I? That means you very well know that I am right in this debate.Your "La Raza" tricks will not work Mistalee. We the Indigenous can see past your lies and deceit. Just like we have been deceived and manipulated by the U.S. Government for centuries. Your "La Raza" agenda is no different. You and your ilk are frequently seeking to underestimate Tribal Sovereignty. Why don't you do yourself a simple favor and admit that First Nations Nationwide are a part of the greater American society and thus concerned with illegal immigration and such?

"Pussy"(?)

You are the only one who is so afraid to identify itself. So don't go around putting words into my mouth.

SAY OUT LOUD WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING UNDER YOUR BREATH!  Stop being such a pussy. It's unbecoming. Come out of the closet and be the real, nativist you.

"You seem unable to comprehend that efforts to secure the border have been implemented and are impotent to stem the tide of illegal immigration."

Congratulations, you just made yourself crystal clear---an open border advocating POS.

Here's a shocker to you, ese. Illegal aliens have no place in Indian Country. You are not on the Tribal census rolls, they(illegal aliens) are not enrolled members of First Nations(in the U.S./Canada to be exact). So have we failed to secure our Native borders? I would certainly say so otherwise.

"You seem to carefully avoid the topic of meaningful immigration reform"

Yes, that's because my battles are against illegal immigration and the scum that comes with it. It is something you obviously can't seem to process in that thick numbskull of yours. So what's the best you can do? You go on to try distort my arguments into something else.(SB1070, CIR) Which is why I don't go there. That's not my fight "amigo". Like I said--my opposition is against the racist "La Raza" scum like you and the rabid Tea Party movement. The two wrongs does not make one right.

Mistalee

"Yes, Native Americans--especially those that Indigenous to thesouthwestern area, can subjected to racial profiling, same as aMexican."

That is absolutely correct and I have never said otherwise. In fact, I have pointed out that American indigenous are often the collateral damage in the nativist anti-immigrant movement.

You seem unable to comprehend that efforts to secure the border have been implemented and are impotent to stem the tide of illegal immigration. You seem to carefully avoid the topic of meaningful immigration reform ( which the Tohono O'odham nation explicitly supports.)  And you seem entirely unwilling to confront the fact that so long as the neoliberal economic policies displacing Mexicans continue, they will do what they have to to feed themselves and their families, including coming here illegally, and they will find a way to do so even if you build a wall at the border a thousand feet tall.

Native Guns
Native Guns

There is no need for me to try anything, other than to state facts that contradicts your own.

"And you don't for "everyone" either".

I never said I "speak" for Indigenous Americans. I merely speak of a popular *OPINION* regarding northern Indigenous Americans, with reference to: ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. More precisely, it means that I am more informed with Indian affairs than you are purporting to be at the moment. You are the one who has woefully failed to address let alone "debunk" me, without bringing up SB1070 into your foreplay.

What exactly did you "debunked" me on? The fact that most of the Indigenous population in Arizona are against SB1070? Mistalee, I think you need to scroll down and try re-reading my "positions" on SB1070 once again.

The problem with you is that you tend to juxtapose anyone who is against illegal immigration as also being pro-SB1070. A "position" that you somehow are unable to process then comprehend the difference. As smart as you "claim" to be, you should know that SB1070 doesn't solve Arizona's illegal immigration problem, nor does it say anything about the security of our southern border. SB1070 is just another egregious piece that legalizes "racial profiling". Yes, Native Americans--especially those that Indigenous to the southwestern area, can subjected to racial profiling, same as a Mexican. Your "Us vs. Them" mentality is a reflection of divisive elements: the racist Tea Party hooligans and your rabid "La Raza" counterparts, where YOU are unable to recognize a common middle ground.

Mistalee
Mistalee

Try again. I never claimed to speak for indigenous Americans. You are the one who attempted to do that. I just debunked your claims by providing statements FROM tribes who do not support your position.

You don't speak for American indians and you don't speak for "everyone" either.

Native Guns

While that's true. And there's nothing wrong with that. So don't go on acting like you speak for Native Americans. By now, everyone knows where you stand. When "La Raza" itself has nothing to do with Native American affairs.
