i don't think he is talking about Donating money, rather social responsibility, speaking up, attending rallies, using ones power to make changes or bring awareness, changing social dynamics etc...which sometimes will mean being unpopular with the mainstream viewpoint
And if Jay-Z starts preaching "Peace", guess what will happen??? there will still be a good amount of ppl in this country getting shot the next day

Like Jay-Z or Barrack Obama's Words have Saved the World already?

i just never understand these people who say oprah jay z this one and that one don't do enough. no n*gga you aint doing enough. what the fu*k is doing enough? if oprah gave every penny she got to inner cities throughout america we'd still have pimps and hos , drug dealers, gang bangers crackheads and murderers. the people have to get their sh*t together bottom line. the people in the communities are the ones that have to look in the mirror and ask am i doing enough for the cause and stop waiting for rich black celebrities to fly through the hood with a cape on. it don't cost no money to stop doing dumb self destructive sh*t to each other

n*gga. Shut the fu*k up!


Im first generation American, with parents out of Liberia (west Africa)..

Got a college degree and a great career.


Thats why the African American community in this country will continue to struggle. Soon as you pass along an observation of some constructive criticism, n*ggas got ten million excuses to get to.

I went to school with "African American" kids. The facts are what they are. Maybe if y'all would listen some instead of getting pregnant and thinking Rap and Hoops are the only salvation, you would prosper.

Instead of blaming everything on white people and NOTHING on yourselves.

Ever wonder why when Africans come to this country they do better than y'all. It's because instead of depending on the system, they're willing to work til either they're successful or it k!lls them (whichever comes first). Take some notes dunny.
i mean no disrespect, but you do not understand the mental chains on our brains. you dont understand the struggle we have. when your ppl come its with the mind set that in america you become whatever you want... that gets beat out of black americans by highschoo;l

He probably got zero help.

I agree with this. If I make a billion dollars, I should give half of that? Would $10-$20,000 not be enough? If I make more money, I should donate more?

I like helping people, but I don't agree with people asking for handouts. Times are tough for everyone. Some people are born into money, some aren't. In this case, Jay wasn't born into it.
it aint about money... we need famous black americans and powerful black americans that speak to the youth...the importance of safe s3x, voting, going to school, having goals, and understanding business. we need real role models. i wouldnt give all my money to nobody either.


but once you have a voice that reaches so many ppl, you cant forget where you came from. i think we have an obligation and duty to spread the truth to the youth.

Wow, I was just telling my friends this the other day. All Jay and his wife do is boast about the things they have while rediculing those who aren't as fortunate. Like pathetic dummies, their fans call that "inspirational". Cats like Belefonte are the definition of inspirational. He made his bank, helped his Black people rise and kept his credibility and validity throughout his career.

Jay is the biggest phony ever and his fans have hoe tendencies for wanting to always listen to that boastful trash.

Some people feel the need to do speak out, some don't. Unfortunately Jay doesn't feel the need to

preach

As a first generation Afro-Colombian, I agree 100%. Black Americans have gone from being inspirational to just plain lazy and bi*chy. Cats rather try to rap, produce, play ball or sell drugs instead of simply just studying and staying focused on legitimate goals. These drug dealers are so stupid they even call their spots "traps". Idiots

Black Americans have turned into Malcom's worst nightmare......a bunch of crabs in a bucket instead of leaders.

there people out there everyday speaking to the youth. folks are going to do what they are going to do. been good and bad folks out there for hundreds of years. just because some famous person says or does something doesn't mean its going to move mountains.

i had david robinson speak at my school about different issues and you know what happened. the same bad kids still did the same bad sh!t

its not really up to celebrities to make change. its up to yourself and the people around you everyday

"They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking."

" Jay-Z is responsible for teaching black people history now? When did Belafonte teach black people about who we are or our the history of our people outside of slavery?....

i agree to an extent we do have a lot more opportunity now than then, but you do realize that there are systems in place to keep us down still to this day.

1. increasingly poorer education in low income neighborhoods
2. racial profiling and discrimination on jobs, loans etc.
3. all true black leaders, with a real voice are a.ssasinated i.e. martin, malcom, huey, tupac
education is not about school though. if you want real education it is in the books. Malcolm X is the best example of that.
