b**** then you're talking about urself..ur a f***ing African american w/ Jamaican born parents..ur just as much a "black american" then me..the funny thing is some of you mothaf***as think u all are different..but other then language and culture..all that roots out of Africa..same boat different route u stupid fukk

You dont understand the history of why black americans for the most part are in the s***tier.. it's tha same damn reason Jamaica and all other brown countries are 3rd world countries..you go to brazil and the african brazilians are in the same situations as others.. you go to f***in Middle East countries..tha Afrikans(yes tha Afrikans black middle eastern.. africans that are there as a result of Arab slave trade) are in tha same situation...it's deeper then what alot of ppl see..but stupid fukks such as yaself don't see it that way cuz u probably grew up in a household where ya parents s***ted on black americans on a daily basis and they taught this blanket bullsh*t to you..so you spew that uneducated sh*t on tha net

you don't even know why ya parents homeland is a 3rd world country do you??

and Caribbeans ppl don't spike up drug n crime n tha states??? Ur in FLA for christ sakes MAN!!!..and I can tell you right off bat..that most drug related crimes in MIAMI alone..from tha 80s untill now...most were on behalf of Cubans/ Columbians/Haitians/Jamaicans..where tha fukk do you think alot of tha drugs are coming from in tha states??

n then u say Black americans don't have culture??

n*gga have u eva heard of Jazz/Blues/Rhythm and Blues/Gospel/Rock-n-Roll..yeah we all know Jamaica was a big influnce on hip-hop..DJ Kool Herc was from JA..a large concentration of immigrants from JA moved to tha Bronx n help create hip-hop..but alot of influences of hip-hop came from tha Funkadelics and James Brown n all black music before hip-hop..do ya history dude..
I'm not of of you people nor will I ever be. Do not sit here and think just because I share common ancestory and am of the same race I'm supposed to identify with you people. Not going to happen. I AM NOT CLASSIFIED AS "AFRICAN-AMERICAN" or whatever they call you people here. let that be known.

And no one said you dumbasses didn't have culture, the you implied my culture was defined by yours which it is not.



You african americans are worthless. you blame other people for your problems and your p!ss poor mentalities which is why you people don't get anywhere in life.

It's sad the the first black president of this country has an actual african father and was raised by a white women.

you people lost again.

So glad I fell from another tree

Oh and let me add that there are good black-american people. I'm not dragging all of you through the mud.

Props to those who are improving/improved their lives and don't use their past or condition as some type of disability or excuse as to why they can't succeed in life in other than rap music and basketball. It's just sad that there are an overwhelming number of dumbasses that make the ones who work hard and have their minds in the right place look bad.

WTF... U GOT A f***IN n*gga IN UR AVY N UR GOING TO TALK DOWN ABOUT US WITH THIS BULL s***!!!!

wow everybody wants to be a n*gga but no one wants to be a n*gga

iight we created or originated the majority of the genres on the radio today, just because the "black people" you see listen to gucci you dont know wtf they like. You know us "black people" is more then cover deep. I blast gucci all the time but know what else is on my playlist, Earl Klugh, Chuck Mangioni, Delfonics, Sly and the Family Stone, Chuck Berry, Art Of Noise and i can go on for days of no hip hop music that i love ot listen to. Just because thats all YOU SEE black people doing dont mean s***. You act like all black people stay in the slumz look at history, who was in the slumz first, European immigrants, but some how they worked them selves into corporate america with no problem. But how come black people wasnt able to, because white people didnt allow us too because of our skin. If you look back at the Montgomery Bus Boycott, the White government spread rumors and lies just to keep the black people in the back of the bus, wtf. They lost over millions of dollars so they didnt have to sit next to a n*gga. And yaw talking about us complaining. We was forced to live in slums and got the left overs, of the left overs from white people so we can stay below yaw. We were lucrative in the projects, Harlem made big money, the Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa, Oklahoma was one of the richest neighborhoods during its time, in a predominantly black neighborhood, nick named Black Wall Street untel jealous white people came and burnt it down. Before you talk s***, look what yaw did to the black race and understand why we are struggling, because white people didnt allow us to move up in a white america, and just because yaw say as a group we aint doing s***, look who the president is, look who your favorite athlete is, listen to what ever genre your listening to and figure out where it came from. A BLACK PERsON!!!

No, by your generalizing statement, you are talking down everyone, even your self. You might be all high in mighty in your mind cause you are a straight decedent from JA himself, but in the eyes to the whiteman you are another n*gga, and you cant say "naw man im jamaican." They aint going to leave you alone of that, theyll probably profile you even hard you doo doo lock weed smoking twisted english speaking bomba clot n*gga lol. And the only reason i said that was because you brought down my BLACK PEOPLE. I claim all black people as one because we all from africa, same boat different routes, we need to unite as one instead of segregate ourselves because that will make us worse then our slave owners. Wise up dude or go back to jamaica.

Yea he is right to a certain extent but I am tired of hearing people talk about education being the key and all that non sense.The educational system in this country needs to be renovated from the ground up.It is a white man institution and they decide the criteria and the material that is taught in these schools.We need to take the initiative and educate our our own children because their brains are being taught from a eurocentric view.We have too many rich Blacks in general,not just rappers and athletes,to not have funds for the building of our own schools.

most modern american music has its root in the blues of the delta, that doesn mean those genres originated, or were created by black american musicians.

and u raised a good point about european immigrants, the hostility and oppression felt by newly arriving groups in america was simply passed to the next group, the former slowly absorbed into american society, as a lesser evil than the new group.

this dividing the people policy is consistent in american society, and as u say the discrimination has only really continued with black americans due to their ease of distinguishability, i.e. its far easier to tell an irishman apart from a nigerian than it is an italian.

if u look at the roots of white supremacy in america u see slave owners giving white slaves slightly better privileges than black ones to stop them helping each other escape, making blacks more like clearly defined slaves,

this (in generations) breeds a superiority complex among whites and also racial solidarity as opposed to class solidarity (the poor whites thinking they have more in common with the rich whites,instead of the poor blacks, where the opposite is the case in lots of countries e.g. my own)

and who benefits from that? the rich men, regardless of race.

your missing the point he was saying if your goal IS TO JUST BE AN ATHLETE OR A RAPPER YOU ALREADY FAILED
I disagree then... If you have a goal, and you strive for it, how can that be considered a failure? How can any form of success be considered a failure?

there are some racist a.ss people on here...obamas main point is that ALL KIDS NOT JUST BLACK KIDS need to realize that theres more to life than ridin around smoking weed and listening to gucci mane....the main problem is TODAYS YOUTH IS WACK...AND GETTING WACKER AND WACKER...its sad. even the music and t.v shows and all the stuff that is geared towards this generation is getting worse and worse. when 9 year olds have cell phones and facebooks and myspaces and crap like that...cats nowadays even dress wack.

you can't really blame anyone but the kids themselves...everybody makes their own choices and if they aren't smart enough to realize that those choices either have benefits or consequences then thats their fault.

How long does it take most people to realize that their choices in life determine the outcome? If their parents aren't teaching them these lessons the right way, how much longer do you think it'll take those kids who grow up under loser parents?

Children think like children... and you can't be mad at them for that...
