Dame Dash is battling a $1 million lawsuit filed by the mother of his son, Linda Williams, because she says he falsely had her arrested in 2009 during their custody battle. While leaving the Manhattan Supreme Court in New York Thursday (March 13th) Dash went after NY Daily News reporters claiming they are a bunch of racist.
“How come you never talk about the positive stuff?” Dash says to the reporters in a video that appears on NY Daily News’ website. “‘Cause I’m Black? Because you’re Republican? Why? When you come in the court case, you don’t go just to court case. You talk about the history of which you’ve written about before. So how come don’t speak about the good stuff? Why don’t you guys ever write about the good stuff about a black man? Why? ‘Cause you’re a racist Republican paper. That’s why. And I know you it’s killing you that Obama is in office. I know it’s killing you. I know it kills you that you went to college to write for a paper that’s not credible…Why is it that you don’t talk about the good stuff, ever?” (HipHopDX)
Dash went on to ask the reporters why they never write anything positive he has been doing.
“Why don’t you say, ‘He has art galleries around the world’?” Dash adds. “‘He has independently owned companies that do well over $50 million’? ‘He employs 10 people at any given time.’ How come you never say that? Why? … Why would anyone believe the Daily News? Nothing you say is credible. You only talk about things that you think are gonna sell papers. So, yeah, people buy into negativity, but why don’t you talk about the positive aspect to this whole situation?” (HipHopDX)
Dame also posted an Instagram video of the altercation. You can check it out below.
