Wesley Gets Got!

Wesley leaving court today after his sentencing-AP
We all knew it was coming. Especially when dude was dodging the feds and escaping to Africa a while back. But the Feds definitely got Wesley Snipes today and sentenced him to 3 years in prison on tax charges. Several of his friends, like Denzel Washington, sent in letters to the court pleading for him to only get probation because of his good character. But clearly all that ish was a no go since the judge sentenced him to 1 year per year of him willfully not filing a tax return. Damn. When will folks learn? See you in three years boo. Cue the Free Wesley Snipes tees...

A better punishment would be

A better punishment would be to take ALL of his money, and make sure he is banned from the film industry, and then we'll see if the asian wife sits in the shack with him! LOL LOL

I think his asian wife should

I think his asian wife should round up all the koreans,chinese, and other asians to march for him. Does he have a snow ball chance in hell of that happening??? LOL LOL NOT!!!

HA HA! You're right. I have

HA HA! You're right. I have never heard this N word do anything at all for black folks. Wasn't even decent enough to father pure black children, and take care of one black wife. Now we're supposed to be upset and march with sharpton for HIM. NO THANKS. Shouldn't have listened to that dumb asian wife of his. A black wife would have told him better.

i'm not even thinking wesley

i'm not even thinking wesley snipes, ronald isley or any of these other rich idiots should get leinency when they can't do the simple duty of paying taxes..if i pay mine, pay yours. do they NOT just come out of a check in hollywood, or am i just a bit naieve to the whole hollywood check/obvious paid under the table thing? WTF, fa real. (and please, i'm asking a hypothetical question here. do not answer it for me. whatever they do, he should have paid like everyone else. no free rides!) betcha he didn't use that damn "new jack city" line this time.. "i'd like to that the criminal justice system.." i'm full of the wesley snipes clips...

All I'm saying is - the three

All I'm saying is - the three officers that killed Sean Bell were acquitted and this fool has to go to prison?? What kind of sense does that make? Now my taxpaying dollars have to go to his 3 hots and a cot when he had $40 million dollars to hoard in the first place?? The taxes are not being refunded now that he's going to jail anyway - so it would just make sense to save time, money and space and simply make him pay up. Where are our priorities>

Nothing is certain but death and taxes. I'm tired of black celebrities trying to avoid taxes and them crying when they get caught: Yolanda Adams, Aretha Franklin, Peabo Bryson. One way or another Uncle Sam will get his. You may as well do it upfront and save yourself the heartache (and a sore behind).

PLUS WHY ARE SO MANY OF YOU ACTING LIKE RACISM IS JUST THE STATUS QUO IN THIS COUNTRY AND SO WE SHOULD ACCEPT IT!!! DAMN, MARTIN, ROSA, MALCOLM - THOSE WHO WERE LYNCHED AND DIED FOR BEING BLACK ARE TURNING IN THEIR GRAVES... WHERE DID SUCH COMPLACENCY COME FROM??? IT IS NOT OKAY THAT "A BLACK MAN IS 3/4 OF MAN IN AMERICA" AND SEVERAL OTHER COMMENTS are quite disturbing...

WindyGIrl: Read my other comments above and I break it down for you. I’m not saying Wes did the smartest thing by rebelling in this way, but thousands of white people are doing it and NONE OF THEM ARE GOING TO JAIL… You all are so quick to throw someone under the bus… so judgmental.. Damn, I guess you all never made a mistake; never broke the law; never got a parking ticket; never got a speeding ticket - you’re being so hypocritical because you don’t LIKE Wesley - and that is a whole other level of craziness… how is them going after Wesley any different than them going after or being unfair towards any other black person??? I’m not defending Wesley Snipes character because I don‘t KNOW him and NEITHER do YOU - but u r allowing ur personal feelings because he was in some article and said something crazy - that who knows what was the context, why he said it and if he even still feels that way - but all of that is irrelevant!!! There is a much larger issue here. WES SHOULD BE PUNISHED, but the punishment should fit the crime and this DOES NOT!!!

Helloooooooo! Regardless of

Helloooooooo! Regardless of how much money you have, you will ALWAYS be treated as if you are 3/4 of a man in AmeriKKKa. Different sets of rules do apply. If they sent Ron Isley's old ass to jail, surely you must know it's going down for you Wes. Now this fool wanna run back to Africa (after he tried to play the entire AA-Race of women). Go Barack!

And for all those crying about they're being a black down, CRY ME A RIVER. I'm sure he didn't give a f* about how black people would look when he decided not to pay his taxes.

This may be an attempt to

This may be an attempt to send a message to all those who purposefully do not pay their taxes. I am sorry to hear that someone with so much going for him would do something so foolish. It is beyond comprehension that people will buy into the belief that we do not have to pay taxes considering all challenges have failed. If there was validity to the claims being touted as to why you don't have to pay taxes, then why haven't those claims been brought forth through the court system and upheld? What a shame that someone who can afford so much would choose to hurt the very government through which we have our freedoms ensured. By refusing to pay taxes, you are slapping the face of every SOLDIER, you are hurting the poor because of all the programs established to assist the poor, the elderly, the handicapped et. al., and you are asking to have no roads repaired, no assistance after hurricanes, tornadoes and other disasters, you are just being downright selfish and mean. Money is the root of evil, as they say.

Paige - that wasn’t what

Paige - that wasn’t what happened… Wes didn’t pay his taxes because the advisors he had were part of a movement to question the government about why they should pay taxes and were in court to battle for their right not to pay… do you know how many white men and families are living in the Midwest and states like North Dakota and other’s further East who DO NOT PAY TAXES!!!! There are thousands of white americans who make the exact same protest!!! They aren’t going to jail for 3 years… so many of you are so quick to say Wes got what he deserved… which is a complete oversimplification of the issue. TAXES DO NOT GO TO OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THEY GO TO THE FEDERAL RESERVE. They put Federal in their name to confuse people. Read up on it, people!

Exactly... Wes will pay the taxes... never said he would't pay the taxes... but they didn't except that... they wanted to take him down and what interesting timing - when we have a Black man running for president? This stuff is serious... This isn't fair because they WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO GET HIM and they don't do that to others. He didn't kill someone; he's not slangin' rock; he has pulled quite a few white women and he's always been arrogant...I mean, how many Black men are in the spotlight? I'm not saying Wes is perfect, but are some of you that unwilling and afraid to question this corrupt system?

Wesley has no one to blame

Wesley has no one to blame but himself. He knew he had to pay taxes because he paid taxes when he as a struggling actor, but now that he's making millions he didn't know he needed to file a federal return. Please! I just hope he has enough money to paid Califorina, New York, or Florida State Taxes (Oh yes, they will be coming for their checks)

THE POINT IS HE DID NOT PAY

THE POINT IS HE DID NOT PAY TAXES FOR A FEW YEARS AND THATS OKAY FOR HIM TO DO WHY AGAIN? SO WHEN I DONT WANNA FILE TAX RETURNS FOR 3 OR MORE YEARS AND HAVE TO GO TO JAIL THEN I'LL BLAME "THE MAN", THE GOVT OR ANYONE ELSE BUT MYSELF FOR SOMETHING I KNEW WAS WORNG.
