No s*** Jamaica is crime infested. Didn't I just say it was a 3rd world country? Wow reading comprehension is a b****.

Who the f*** said I'm trying to hang with you people? I wouldn't waste my time.

And what culture do you people have? Hip-Hop? LMAO

do you know the origin of rap music started in Kingston. The genre is called ska and the technique is called Toasting.

Sit your a.ss down.
n*gga please, but ur on a hiphop site filled with American blacks. black culture is way bigger then hip hop and u know that also. I can tell ur one of them ugly jealous dudes that got picked on in America. f*** outta here mr I’m better then the other Negros. there’s young blacks in America that live in the same level of poverty that Jamaicans live in, that come from broken homes without parental guidance. if these kids never get the tools they need to become successful, its there fault right ? because they come from a country with a higher standard of living? u shouldn’t judge others because u got one of the greatest blessings in the world, which is a supportive household. You got a better start in life then a lot of these kids could ever dream of. My dad tell me all the time how lucky I’ am because of my upbringing. He came from a broken home and never got any support, ended up on the wrong track in life. He learned the hard way and was able to teach me because of his mistakes. Its easy to judge others when ur having success, but you need to take a step back and put yourself in someone else’s shoes. Stop comparing you’re life to other people, because you got more advantages then most people. I cant wait til somebody treat u like a n1gger so u see how much of a standout u really are from the rest“us“.

People in Jamaica live in deeper poverty than people in america. people in america have multiple opportunities unlike people in Jamaica. You people are just lazy and don't care to advance your lives.

And don't sit here and act like you know me. My life has a been a struggle and I succeeded.

People in this country are full of excuses and never take responsibility for their own actions and that is why people from 3rd countries immigrant to the U.S. and end up succeeding over the people who've been for the longest. People are f***ing worthless.

And don't pull that "he's never been treated like a niqqer before" s*** with me.


If you don't know how to stand up on your own 2 feet then that sucks for you.

Glad I wasn't raised to be a submissive defeatist p****.

The man is right in saying what he said. Of course, there will be vast amounts of black folks who are going to be on some other s*** seeing as how anyone that tells us the truth to our faces is labled a hater. Point blank period, we as black people need to wake the f*** up and take responsibility for ourselves and stop with the bulls*** that we bring on ourselves. I'm not an Obama supporter but the dude has a point. It's just up to us to wake the f*** up

true....i''m not a parent though...and its already difficult to motivate a child to strive for their education.....but to define their goals and road to life is another....... as much as i want our children to become scientist and (i wouldn't say teachers because i see of black people becoming teachers) or whatever...its up to them....we should put more black scientist and doctors in the view of our youth


a son of a lawyer would have a high chance of wanting to become one.....but a son of a coward who left their child in the hood to survive might give a fukk less about the judicial system.....its all in motivation and we really don't have that many motivators other than wayne and lebron in the limelight sadly

I don't like the way he so un-eloquently made that statement.....it only will further negative stereotypes about black people.....

and since when does someone who was raised by white folks and was the son of an African, emphasis on African, get to be an expert on AFrican-Americans?

I think Obama should take a step back and see why it is that black folks are gravitating to those type of aspirations rather than attack them for it.....

True....and peep how the white kids on this board loved this so called "tough-love"message...with responses like "now one of your own called you all out on your s***,im just interested to see if it really makes a difference"

if thats not blatant racism then......

Damn f***ing straight... everybopdy wants to call Bill Cosby a self hater but everything he said was true... Obama basically said the same s***, in a better way of course....
Bill Cosby's s*** was riddled with General Stereotypes that most of the people who actually listened to it, got offended by... The people he was trying to "reach" probably didn't even hear the s*** he was saying, because why would they be listening to a Bill Cosby speech?

And didn't he deliver those speeches at COLLEGES? , talk about preaching to the choir...

And I don't think striving to be the next "Lebron James" or "Lil Wayne" is necessarily "limiting" yourself... What's wrong with being very successful at something you love to do? I think parents need to focus on feeding their kids a successful mindset, no matter what it is they want to do.. Do what you love, and be great at it... That's the lesson we need to teach...

This sh!t is the pure truth, its the parents fault, if two is not there so what. Then it's the mothers fault. I'm so tired of some youth that are out there with no hopes or aspiration to do anything and they peoples just write them off as a lost cause. Or even when children do get in trouble its not their last stop, help them to change their mind sets. I am so glad he has said this as a black man no matter what he is mixed with he's still black to society and he has every right to say this. He is an inspirational figure to many people. Even though we as black people are making strides sending our kids of to college and developing a new generation not too many are fortunate to change. So all you emotional mofo's wake up! And learn the truth.

I just graduated from college and i strive to my younger brother to be better than me, college or no college make sure you do something with your life that is positive and resourceful in addition make it happen and i will be there to make that come true. If you have kids, siblings , fam period, let them kno that. Our fams are kind of messed up too. But no excuses.

Thanks obama, people needed to hear this. Now we need those programs back that regan ended to help our communities get back on their feet.

What makes you think I don't say this s*** in public? Because I'm typing it on boxden? I'm supposed to be scared of black-americans or something?


All that is coming out of your stupid posts are a.ssumptions. Nothing more nothing less. It's quite sad.

You seriously need to sit the f*** down and shut the f*** up.

here we go with this nonsense again. last i checked that mans skin was black he didnt get any type of pass because his mom was white if anything he got more of the brunt seeing how hios mother was treated as opposed to just himself

people want to act like demanding self responsibility is some crime and if a blaack man suggests it hes somehow delusional or hates himself
