    Most blacks can't swim OR read


    Before you slam on blacks swimming abilities, remember Cullen Jones. Olympic medalist, nc state grad, and black.


    Dang, that's sad black people can't swim.


    I watched Rodney on celebrity rehab. He seemed like a man who was desperate to turn his life around. I feel very sad for his children. Those comments about blacks swimming abilities are shameful. They make you look stupid. Very stupid.


    This story is so sad, my heart goes out to his family, i hope he is at peace. The man endured one of the most vicious beatings in the history of time, those racits pig cops will burn in hell! Karma is a bitch! They are an embarrassment to white people. Matt is an insecure pathetic waste of a human being. MissThang well said.
    R.i.p. Rodney King :( this is so sad!


    omg....who f'ing cares what color he is!!!! What if it was a white guy that drowned......i bet u wouldnt say...."oh...another white guy that couldnt swim".. Grow the F*ck up!!! a family is hurting over his some symphany or keep your negative comments to your self!! Smh


    A tragic end to a sad troubled life. I don't think
    Rodney King ever reconciled with what happened back in 1991; he seemed to numb himself with drinking and probably illicit drugs. Poor man.....I hope he is finally at peace.


    Dang, what a tragic life story.


    Yes blacks used the guy as an excuse to destroy L.A....buncha looting thug tards.


    That's awful. At least a third addict to pass (who was on Celebrity Rehap).. just goes to show how much b.s this show it. More for drama, less for helping.
