Appearing on the Fox Business Channel recently, "Basketball Wife" Meeka and Speedy Claxton talked about the ways they manage to live a fabulous lifestyle in a bad economy.

The couple stressed living within your means and maintaining savings.

Nice to see a couple with their finances in order...seemingly.

Wow, all of these comments

Wow, all of these comments remind me of why I cannot stand black people. All of the hate need to stop! Not all black people are for Obama, especially the rich. Meeka is nowhere near ugly, I am wondering if jump off Evelyn, or azz kissing Jennifer making most of these comments. I can see why VH1 Never showed her home like they did all the other women on the show. She would of out done all of them, showing the way she lives. Obviously her husband has a speech problem, so what? We dont know why that is (disease, injury,etc.) I am glad they are spending within their means, unfortunately African Americans dont know what that mean or is. I love to see two young black couples doing it big, and living happy and comfortably. One thing for sure she does not need that show!

She is a mess on BBW, but they have a nice house. This is nice and I'm very happy that they appear to be happy together. I hope and pray that they continue to be happy together and grow old together. I'm so happy for them.

U so called YBF people never have anything nice to say...I swear! lol I didn't care for Meeka when she came to the show(BBW)....but, there is something fishy going on with that.. to me....I can't put my finger on it yet.

I do feel that the Claxtons

I do feel that the Claxtons were "bamboozled". This interview would have been a much better one if they had spoken more articulately about HOW they have been able to maintain financial security in a recession. All Meeka kept saying was and Speedy attempted to say was, "We don't live above our means." To me that's conmon sense. I think it's great they are ballin' and I will not hate on other black folks BUT damn it must be nice.

The comments that this was

The comments that this was damn near a disaster in under 5 minutes forced me to watch and see, 1. Beautiful house, and "LAND" that they made sure to let y'all know cost just as much. 2. Dumb and greasy as they are that's applaud worthy that they have all that without being in debt, and dumb as Speedy seems it's respectable that he valued his parents lessons on the value of a dollar and keeping a job and avoiding debt, BUT They got played and wasn't smart enough to avoid it, They weren't allowed time to give financial advice or talk investments, so this was just a segment of "look how I'm living through this recession" Which seems like a FOX NEWS set-up to highlight rich entertainers and their frivolous spending. FOX NEWS used them to start a Rich entertainers VS. Wall Street debate. FOX is so dirty.

@Anonymous re:5:01 am -- You

@Anonymous re:5:01 am -- You seem blessed and happy. Without malice - nor shade - I'm happy for YOU and YOUR blessings. May YOU, and your loved ones, continue to long-enjoy them in health and contentment! (That said..)The critique of Meeka and Speed is NOT based in "hate, envy nor covetousness." They could have done a "TV Special" (of sorts) on BET, ESPN, or even here, on YBF. Their-then reception, I'd wager, would've been FAR-better. BUT they choose Fox/News Corp. The general consensus, as read-through in this thread/post, speaks..volumes: Fox(News Corp/Rupert Murdoch) USED them as bait/fodder to further a right-wing-reactionary Republican agenda! What we're left with is NOT Speedy/Meeka's noteworthy financial savvy, but "thinly-veiled political propaganda: Obama/Taxes: BAD; Republicans/Conservatives: Good." You see, Speedy/Meeka's actual message/lessons, which SHOULD be well-learned by all, was hijacked by near-fascist politically-driven knee-jerk-reactionary Fox News; ergo: the skewering/slow-roasting of Speedy/Meeka.. It wouldn't surprise me to see Speedy/Meeka campaigning, during the coming 2012 Presidency Campaign, for a Republican Candidate. I'd be even be less surprised to see them at "Tea Party" rallies.

Anonymous's picture

This interview is reminiscent

This interview is reminiscent of an episode of SNL. An underhanded motive on behalf of Fox News, to say the least. As opposed to focusing on the acquisition and distribution of wealth (among blacks), there exists a political undertone in each question posed to the Claxtons. It's as if the host is gearing up to say, "See, Obama! Even your own people agree with us that they should not have to pay more taxes!" Unbeknownst to both Meeka and Speedy, they have been made the "butt" of an even bigger joke. Even so, at the very least, this was the time for both Meeka and especially Speedy to utilize or display their knowledge of high-school grammar. I've heard three-year olds with better diction, inflection and intonation of speech! ENUNCIATE, black people! Enunciate!

What is this I'm witnessing?

What is this I'm witnessing? I bet you if this was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Arnold Schwartznegger, Barbara Walters, exPresident George W. Bush who is living of the taxpayers money for life!. And remember the weekly shows of the Life Styles of the Rich and Famous and all the white people they use to showcase. He would not be asking them chit! The all male white writing staff is racist as all out doors, imo. The audacity of the questioning of Meeka and Speedy Claxton and how their spending their finances and should they be living the way their living, etc., are you serious? This clip teaches me one thing that is historical about white racist people, including the interviewer, they think that ALL blacks are supposed to be poor. I bet you they would not ask Hugh Hefner about how he was living and why he wore the cloths he was wearing and why he he owned homes all around the world and have 7 wives and paid for their lifestyles in that big mansion and why he had all that money and jewlery and fancy parties, smdh. White racist people get on my damn nerves! It is 2011 and African-Americans still don't get no respect. African-American's can be business owners, educated with 3 PhD's and still a white man or white women will still look at them as a slave. MsAnonymous2U
