Trinidad James on CNN. Stand up for your rights. It’s called a freedom of speech.

Thank you for coming to place where you worked and decided to come and buy a Vintage Carrera Boeing 5701 41 sunglasses.  It’s looking good.

Vintage Carrera Boeing Collection 5701 41 sunglasses were produced in only small quantities, a 1980s collaboration between Carrera and Boeing to design and produce high performance eyewear for pilots as well as the fashion conscious public. The closed in, gold plated nose bridge of the Carrera 5701 is a distinctive design feature and indicates early production, and the silver plated front frame and gold plated ear stems look great with the blue gradient optical grade 1, lightweight, highly scratch resistant UV protected lenses. Other notable design features include 3-C nosepads with 70° rotating capability and height adjustable, shock absorbers that provide flexibility, stability and comfort, and temple screws which never require adjusting. The unisex Carrera Boeing Collection frame measures approximately 5.5″ temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.375″ x 2.25″ at the widest points with left lens laser etched Boeing. You’ll find the Boeing Carrera logo impressed on the exterior of both ear stems, and the inside of one stem is marked The Boeing Collection by Carrera while the inside of the other stem is marked Made in Austria 5701 41 62 [] 12 Small 125 and impressed with the unique serial number.

3-16-15 – ( CNN ) – Rapper Trinidad James appeared on CNN tonight for a lengthy discussion over the n-word that culminated in James clashing with conservative guest Ben Ferguson over the use of the n-word and whether rap artists are profiting off it. James first spoke with Don Lemon and said he’s not terribly concerned with the SAE frat mother who dropped the n-word several times while singing along to one of his songs.

But the real fireworks began when Ferguson and Marc Lamont Hill joined in the second segment. Hill backed up James to say that rap artists get undue “burden and pressure” to stop saying the n-word when filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino don’t get the same treatment.

Ferguson confronted James about the “divisive” nature of the word and said rappers are “afraid that they’ll lose out on money and sales” if the n-word goes away. He even told James, “You’re making money off it!” James shot back that he’s giving the n-word too much power, arguing that he gets money from his music and creativity and not the n-word alone.

Ferguson even told James that the n-word is the only reason he’s on the show. Hill piped up that he’s actually on the show because a white woman used the n-word first, and also that “white people were saying the word nigger before Trinidad James was born.”
