this.

i went to a mainly minority-filled high school....

not going to lie, i met FEW blacks at my school who wanted to pursue a career NOT consisting of sports and entertainment. in fact the friends who i befriended and who considered themselves black wanted to all become "famous" with their crappy music or become big in sports, thus going to college for the wrong reasons.

yes, there are many people who consider themselves as black who are on the path to greatness. i know a handful of them who are in my current engineering classes in pace to become engineers in a couple of years, but they're the minority of the minorities in the engineering department at my school.

i mean, if u in the hood asking 'n*ggas' what they wanna be of course they are not going to say doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, businessmen, and agents. The young black men i a.ssociated myself with in college did however. Now, half of them hinted at getting those payroll jobs to invest some front money for drugs, but its a start.

The thing that pisses me off about going to school that it still doesn't promise you the job you feel you deserve. However it does promise you a Student Loan payment. Even after grinding it out in school for four years you still have to chase jobs unless you are lucky and know someone that can hook you up. It's just a reality to check and most youngsters have not gotten to that point yet. They still thinking about going pro or getting that music deal when the chances are very slim for either to happen.

Thats called the real world man, some don't have a clue and when it hits em it will hurt. Keep grindin' and stay up and stay positive nothing comes easy when you are doing it the legal way. That's why people do illegal sh*t because they don't want to sacrifice and go to school or work those grimey hours on a dead end job.

Barkley once again speaking the truth

The majority of wealthy blacks on TV happen to be in Sports or Entertainment
So that is what the youth dream of growing up to be

Sad as it is that is reality

Are u serious??


The odds of making the NBA or any professional league are incredibly small

Same with entertainers, not everyone can just decide to become famous and make it happen

There is nothing wrong with wanting to be athletes or entertainers but after a certain age you should have a backup plan or atleast realize if that dream is possible or not

The problem is most of the youth dont have no backup plan and when they realize they cant be in the league or in movies they end up in a dead end job making nothing or on the streets

I mean, I wanted to be playing in the NBA, but I realized I'm 1) school smart, and 2) not nearly good enough. It's not a lie at all, he probably should have kept it to himself though.
