Luther Campbell Sues Nevin Shapiro

Don't call him "Lil Luke."
Uncle Luke is going after the convicted Ponzi schemer who proclaimed himself "Lil Luke." Today, Luther Campbell followed through on his promise to sue Nevin Shapiro for defamation.

In Yahoo! Sports' investigative report on rampant booster violations he committed at the University of Miami, Shapiro claimed his lavishing student-athletes with prostitutes and trips to strip clubs was just continuing what Campbell had done when he was intimately involved with the school's football program in the early 1990s. Shapiro also alleged he also mimicked Campbell by paying players for vicious hits on opponents.

Campbell has vehemently denied any wrong doing. In his complaint filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, Campbell claims Shapiro, who is in federal prison, falsely accuses him of "the same type and category of illegal and immoral behavior" that landed the ponzi schemer in trouble. The New Times columnist and former rap producer declined comment.

However, in a column published August 17, Campbell wrote about Shapiro: "You can't be me just by reading a Dan Le Batard article in The Miami Herald from 21 years ago alleging I paid players for hits on the field. The NCAA investigated those accusations and found no wrongdoing on my part. This notion that I was paying players is false. It never happened."

Shapiro's lawyer Maria Elena Perez could not immediately be reached for a response.

From the FBI website that has "Uniform Crime Statistics".  

Read these statistics in the context that blacks are only 12.6% of the US population.

Table 43, nationwide arrests, for 2009:

blacks:49% of murders & manslaughter33% of rape56% of robbery34% of aggravated assault32% of burglary29% of theft36% of motor vehicle theft

Summary: 39% of all violent crime, 30% of all property crime.

Arrests os blacks under 18:All violent crimes: 52%All property crime: 33%

Read these statistics in the context that blacks are only 12.6% of the US population.

GOOD JOB and THANKS FOR ALL THE CRIME.

According to newsone dot com, the crazy pro-black website:

newsone dot com/nation/thegrio3/where-are-all-the-good-single-black-men/

There are more black females than males.

8.5% of black men are married to White women.

Nationally, 30% of black males have been to jail.

In Chicago, 55% of black males are felons.

Only 82% of black males are high school graduates.

35% of black males are unemployed.

38% of black males over 18 are obese.

Over 33% of black males have reproduced with multiple women.

66% of black offspring do not live with their father.

If you are a single black female looking for a single black male that:

is blackis heterois interested in black womenhas a high school diplomahas a job (not to mention makes over $30k/year)is not obesedoes not have kids with multiple women

then you are left with 3 qualifying black males for every 100 available black females. Thus, the numbers support black females oft-stated claim: it is nearly impossible to find a "good" black male.

Luke, the sellout, fraud, pussy, illiterate, poor excuse for a father, and basic horrible human, already admitted on 30 for 30 that he paid players. In the real world Luke, there is a word that you need to learn. The word is accountability. Go back to the ghetto! I would pay money to fight you physically, and or mentally.

Most of Luke Campbells articles are paid for by "sponsors.". New Times is either in on it or too stupid or uncaring to stop him. Shame on New Times and shame on Luke. They are both manipulators for their own benefit - at the cost of Miami taxpayers.

Why Luke... Why?
Why Luke... Why?

And to think, just 5 months ago, Mr. Campbell was on the verge of being a real power-broker in Miami-Dade Politics.  Then he switched his endorsement, started showing up late to press conferences, and accused everybody of everything under the sun.  Oh, what could have been?  Now he's filing frivolous lawsuits.

Thank you for my biggest laugh of the day. Luther sues Nevin for defamation. Luther, the truth is the defense against defamation. You are not going to win this one. The man complimented you by copying you. Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery. :)
