    Sad! Sad!! Sad!!! i’m always glad to see discussions like this in America, don’t get me wrong as they are always nothing but discussions only and doesn’t mean anything is going to be done about it, at least they are constantly talking about it. This happens in England, Italy and most Europeans countries, the oppressed, black or brown doesn’t even have a voice or it’s not been discussed at all, constantly been swept under the carpets like, the control system in European countries is simply unbelievable.

      There is a disparity everywhere you looked. However, there are several things we as a community can do to address this. We can challenge ourselves, then our children and friends to be better. We can then create businesses worthy of patronage. We can relinquish the notion that not know math, not being on time or “stuntin” is just part of our culture. Finally, our equally will only come on two fronts, education and economics. Malcolm, Dubois and Garvey all knew it. If we implement that plan that has been set out, we can have the respect and dignity in this country that we deserve.

        Great point sir. We have to stop embracing ignorance as the status quot. You don’t know how many times (including on this site) that I’ve told someone about their grammar and to check it, (because I HONESTLY DON’T UNDERSTAND THEM) only to be met with, “bich nikka dis ant no spellen bea” or “hoo R U niqqa??? da letter polise???”
        I mean, I’m a strong believer in EACH ONE TEACH ONE, but what do we do when clowns condone ignorance and actually COMBAT intelligence? Everyone can’t come to Zion with us. some people like being stupid. And some people also only are smart about what they WANT to be smart about, for instance, Most of the articles on this site have more incorrect spelling than a Chief Keef dissertation. But hit the right nerve, and watch illseed respond with the grammar of an ivy league graduate. I don’t know… like I said we can save those with their hand out.

        I would agree if I thought you could teach someone anything useful on a hip hop website. All people want to do on the internet is vent, and try to express their opinions as facts. Until we value education and aspire to be greater as a community, we will forever be in a rut.

      • Mike Davis

        I agree. I think as a people..we are LOST.

        I see people organizing behind Trayvon Martin, and the Stand Your Ground laws…but won’t organize to boycott RadioOne, BET, MTV and these record labels that push all of this gangbanging, dopeboy, turnt up ignorant BS to our children??

        It’s like a shell game…keep your eye on the small potatoes, when the real root of the issue is US. We need to get back to educating our kids and ourselves, having respect for each other, and helping each other rise. Once we do that, then there’s nothing ANYBODY can do to bring us down, because we’d be self-sufficient…AND self-reliant.

    “Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!

    And so I’m happy, tonight.

    I’m not worried about anything.

    I’m not fearing any man.

    Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.”

    Dr. Martin Luther King said he has seen the Mountain Top and has looked over. I believe that. so I am not discouraged or enraged anymore about this month’s events.

    “If I had sneezed, I wouldn’t have had a chance later that year, in August, to try to tell America about a dream that I had had.”
    I know we are alright. God is on our side and God understands our pain even when other do not. The word encourages us to lay our burdens and cares on Him and I have done that.

    And there was a power there which Bull Connor couldn’t adjust to; and so we ended up transforming…..
    Read the speech again. God Bless

    there is power in God that Bull Connor cannot adjust to Dr king – Bing News

    Anger management? Did you even WATCH it?

    *whispers to jay z* “big up to nas” * realizes jay z’s chair is empty, looks around room…shoulder shrugs*

  • atle fjeldstad

    pain management? that`s a good thing for the most times.. At least if you are looking at how many who get addicted from pain pills..

    Slavery ended 150 years ago… Not that long ago. That’s my 100 year old grandma, plus 50 years. On top of that, wasn’t like it ended and they gave us equal everything from that day forward. FOH with the slavery/racism is irrelevant now arguments. It’s not an excuse for failure, but there are certainly some effects still being dealt with that should not be ignored just because it makes white people irritated or uncomfortable. I hate that “stop bringing up old shit” argument in life or in history. Everything needs historical context.
