"Something is not right, he could get installation models, and he raped an old homeless woman? I saw where some of the sentences are deadlocked. I watch his father play, awesome tight end, this idiot, ruin his life and his father's name."
have a choice, we can stop blaming the man or society for our failures, or we should just kill each other and let society move on without us.
I think i've said more than enough, especially since there is little multiplicative benefit to speaking 1 on 1. My goal is to educate and elucidate those who are receptive to hearing a different perspective than the "whoa is me" disposition that we love to take. I am saying this, because seeking to persuade you or anyone else is not my agenda - so let me make that clear. I am very confident i am 100% accurate in my assessment, and have been around positive blacks all my life to know what righteous thinking is about. Lots of folks talk nonsense about the black experience, but has NEVER lived in a black country, a black neighborhood, attended black schools, universities, worked in the black ghettos and met with black scholars. What I can tell you is that I've experienced ALL of the above and then some...
Been sort of busy to get back to you, but i'll say this. I have neither the time nor inclination to debate folks (black or white) who deny the undeniable, believe in being a victim or has an apologetic stance for the filth that is now permeating the minds of many black kids today.
You see, I don't need to read what some one else has to say about Hip Hop and the degradation of black society. I grew up in the hood, and in the streets of a predominantly black neighborhood. From what I saw as a teen in the mid-80's, I new I had a choice. Either I rolled with the fellas who wanted it all NOW, or I rolled with a lifestyle that was void of trappings of a pseudo-rich lifestyle, but also void of the violence. I chose the latter, and here I am today. However, I can't say the same for 90% of my homeboys in 8th & 9th grade - most of them are dead or in prison (if they're lucky).
Fast forward to today, and I've seen the glorification of violence and ignorance by Hip Hop industry has brought nothing but carnage and complete ignorance to the kids who believed in the mythology. An entire generation, twenty-five years of growth of thought and intelligence has been all but eradicated from a civilization, because of a mis-guided belief in a lifestyle that chides the fundamental principals of intelligence, respect, and social advancement.
Personally, I'm sick and tired of the excuses from black apologist, who insist on placing the blame for our social pathologies on everyone else but ourselves. Until we realize that we are our own worst enemies, there is no escaping the real and mental slavery that shackles us to this purgatory. There is no question that irresponsible and disgusting parents are the No. 1 reasons why kids are completely lost and misguided.
From my years building a high school in NYC (yep, i created a NYC school with my own funds in the poorest part of the city), to working with community centers in East NY, and Brownsville, I know that kids want to learn and want to do better, but it's the parents who indoctrinate them with poisonous beliefs and vapid thoughts. Beliefs grounded in the fantasies of gangsta living, Hip Hop theology, and victimization curricula. Eventually these venomous teachings, latch on to the clueless who's minds become irreversibly diseased. If that weren't bad enough, these diseased minds, procreate, spreading a more super ignorant class of teachings and beliefs. A class with virtues of repute that even ancient civilization would find impossible to comprehend - i mean, what culture of men thinks it's cool to show the "crack of their asz"!! You could be from in the middle of Congo, and would feel some sense of morality that this is disgusting. If you don't then your parents would, but knocking your the phuck out till you got your mind right...
I'I'll be the first to say, I ain't here (Caribbean Fever) to make friends, and i am equally critical to everyone. I don't dislike race, i dislike ignorance. Our history is our history, and we (Blacks), just due to the pigmentation in our skin, are across the board the most dislike and disrespected race on the planet. Unfortunately we are equally as disliked by others, as we are by our own kind (Blacks). We have to like ourselves first, before we can expect others to like us (case in point: we kill each other much more than anyone else, yet still we want respect from non-blacks for the killing of Trayvon - We may get a favorable verdict, but we will never get respect, until we respect ourselves). The importance of ignorance is vital to our survival, because what will be most universally disliked in this "New World Order" that is quickly unfolding will be ignorance. I can all but assure you in the next 15years, there will be zero-tolerance for people who choose not to learn, and not WANT to contribute to society. The time for change is now, and every day we are running out. We
