We ask for ipods they askk for schools .. lets see why,.......School is free for us, not for them...so if they have the chance for schools they wanted .. ppl want what they cant have... that simple... but personally fu*k alll these celebs goin abroad to do things..its ppl here that need help...ppl forget that you take care of home before u help a neighbor...
You think these ghetto kids hanging on the corners cutting class, smoking weed, failing outta school, are gonna appreciate some sh*t like this? Or take advantage of it? We got plenty of oppurtunities over here, and most americans dont take advantage of it. We got public schools everywhere, with free transportation to the school, free lunch if you cant afford it, and look at how many dumb illiterate ppl we have on the streets, kids and adults. So what, they need a 40 million dollar complex with a hair salon and sh*t to motivate them to go to school and get off the corners or playing xbox? I mean, WTF do you want, us to just forget about Africa until the United States is perfect and everyone is in school, and isnt homeless, etc,before helping anyone else out? sh*t aint never gonna be perfect over here, so your logic is off. Plenty of ppl help out over here. We got scholorships, charities, etc etc etc. Theres plenty of money being dumped in the United States too. Most ghettos have rec centers, different after school clubs, etc, but kids is on corners shooting each other up, or selling drugs, wasting all their money on latest pair or jordans, even k!lling and robbing kids over the jordans, instead of thinking about their future and getting their a.ss in the classroom. For the kids that really want an education, they have the oppurtunit to do so.
I mean sh*t, the United States and the rest of the world has made billions, maybe trillions of dollars of Africa and its resources, such as Oil and Diamonds. So how the fu*k can you say it aint right that someones helping out over there.
Oprah could build that exact same school in your local "ghetto" and n*ggas would still not go. If a persons mentality isnt on education and bettering themselves, it doesnt matter how fancy the school is, they wont take advantage of it. Kids drive/ride by fancy colleges everyday looking at kids just like them on campus doing their thing, and they go right back to sitting on their a.ss, or on the corner, drinking, smoking, and shooting, instead of saying "thats the kind of life i want for myself".
I really dont like Oprah, but her, Bono, and Gates spend their money that most ppl who have it like them arent spending, to help out over there when they really could say fu*k them. Thats what being a humanitarian is all about. Helping and a.ssiting humans, no matter where they're from, local or abroad.
