Real sh*t

n*ggas have to want more for themselves and their communities. But honestly there's hardly any unity among black people. I don't mean hold hands and sing kumbaya type of unity either. There's very little respect for one another. When you're successful, get out of that environment, and try to come back through to put others in the same position as you, a lot of the time you meet more hostility than anything. "You turned your back on the streets, you a sellout." n*ggas would rather take what you have rather be in the position to work hard and get their own. It's fu*ked up.
this is what i mean by psychological locks on the brain. should jay or oprah give 3 million to the ghetto or sumn? NO

but they should maybe start a new schooling system for inner city youth.
or maybe a new black channel with less sit comes and more positive role models.

Did you grow up in the inner city?


Have you ever went to a public school in the hood?



I doubt it nobody blames white people for everything but it's white people that believe and wanna say slavery and segregation don't effect what's going on today. White people started at the top and black people started at the very bottom you call that equal opportunity? One race being able to read for 100 years before the other





Do some research like the Jim crow laws and how they put black people in poor communitys because they knew it would make them turn on each other and k!ll each other for food and money. stop speaking on sh*t you don't know about

[pic - click to view]

These are the exact kind of excuses that I'm talking about. Always an excuse from 100+ years ago. Or something about "The White Man".

And yes I did go to public school, in the inner city. My parents (being that they were immigrants) couldn't afford anything but that. I just never used it as an excuse. Neither did they and they WORKED their way out.

I understand what you saying but the Jim Crow laws were made how long ago? Get over that sh*t and do something with yourself. They learned to read 100 years earlier, but you can read now so that dont even matter. Other cultures that have been through as much as we have are being successful. Blacks are left behind because they dont try to catch up to everyone else.


Thank you my brother.

We all from the same struggle. Immigrants and first generation kids grow up poor too, they just don't make the majority of the dumb decisions that "African Americans" do. We see our parents working their a.sses off just to be in this country to make a life for themselves and it motivates us.

You think as an American by way of Africa, the "Jim Crow" stuff don't effect us.

You think a racist white person sees me they say "you know what, he's African, not African American, so we like him"

No, they calling me "******" too, but we don't let that be an excuse not to achieve goals and stay in the slums forever.

We in the same struggle we just have different standards of living and different mindsets. Thats why we advance.

believe me when i say i feel what your saying, but you dont know our struggle!!! we dont have a country!!!

we have been systematicly pcychologically oppressed for over 2oo hundred years!!!
the generation from the mid 80's through the 90's basicly raised themselves!!! because of crack, heroin, and violence.

correct me if im wrong. but you had parents who worked and set a good example for you in the home huh? how did you get here? you didnt swim....my mom has not given me a penny since before i was a teen...she didnt and doesnt have it to give...she has never worked. my pops and 60% ppl i grew up with didnt have a father. hes either dead or in jail.

how are you supposed to develop any positive habits? when you never seen anything positive???

that positive preaching sh*t don't even work truthfully speaking. the million man march worked for how long? a week? then everybody was back on their bullsh*t? theres a big difference between being a hearer of the word and being a doer of the word. people go to church and clap and shout like they're at an entertainment venue then they go home and sin like a motherfu*ker. this is how we gotta do it in my opinion. get an education and get yourself an educated woman. chances are you'll both have good jobs and it increases the chances of your kids being educated too. we got too many dumb motherfu*kers running around in the hood and to me more than anything that's the issue. we all gotta live with the choices we make and dumb people make dumb choices

good points from the other side of th convo...I like what you said about having no country...essentially no true home but America. When you ask minorities from another country, they never say I'm x*x-American, always just their home country. I guess for African-Americans, this is their home and they get treated like 2nd rate humans for however Many years now....

i agree, i think it starts with education. with education you break the mold. not just school, but education. the average person white, black or alien doesnt realize they are being manipulated. thats why conspiracy theories sound so far fetched


that said the problem goes even deeper, there is male female role reversal in black america.

subconscious hate for ourselves

the fact that we have no history that goes any further than the cotton fields.

and the fact that we have no leaders, or role models.

And I feel you my brother. Im sure it's incredibly hard growing up in a household where the parents set no type of example.

But I always look at it like, that should serve as motivation too. Serve as motivation to not want to be like your parents. Not to continue in the same struggles as they did. And there are some "African Americans" who do use that as motivation to do well in life.

I just hate that there are more cases where you see the mother gets pregnant at 15 and 15 years later her daughter is pregnant and poor too and so forth. Or the son ends up in the same jail his father is serving life in.

Life is about choices. Especially in a world where African Americans now have the most opportunities that they have ever had to succeed

i feel you...thing is most people dont know there options, being a doctor or a lawyer, or even a fu*kin cop seems like a fairy tale when you have never personally know anyone but pimps, gangsters, hustlers, people who work at grocery stores and fast food

Segregation was only 50 years ago most black people grandparents was sitting at the back of the bus 50 years is along time ago? And when segregation was abolished do you think white people right that minute stopped being racist? Look at it this way if your grandparents wasn't able to get the proper education and opportunities what do you think happened to there kids and there kids?



Like I said do some research look up the education in inner city schools compared to surbarb schools or look up that article about managers saying they won't hire somebody with a black sounding name



I can go on for days like I said why don't white people become slaves and deal with segregation for centurys and we can see how good they doing 50 years later

some people in here need to learn some basic history. sh*t is disgusting really. how the fu*k you bring up jim crow while ignoring segregation, a "war" on drugs, illegal housing discrimination, loan discrimination, the southern strategy, etc.

the most damaging thing to happen to the black community was white flight in the 50s and 60s. whites began to leave cities for suburbs. this led to the collapse of inner city life all around the country. the more segregated a population, the greater effect any one law will have on a specific group of people. this country has a RACIST history. period. there is no debate about this. and this was not 200 years ago. if youre black and your successful thats great it really is. but to simply ignore what minorities, and specifically blacks have gone through and continue to go through is a dangerous mindset

There are more problems with the black community than you can shake a stick at
-glorifying thug culture as "blackness"
-not working together or teaming up in busineses
-crabs in the bucket mentality
-self hatred: skin color
-self hatred: african american vs african
-post slavery traumatic syndrome(playing the victim for ascpects that dont exist anymore)
-disrespecting our women.. They feel like they gotta have weaves and sh*t to compete... There is no appreciation for their NATURAL hair
-lack of mentoring for young men
-lack of community standards+leadership
-lack of respect for marriage and family structure
-over s3xualizing our culture, and no emphasis on responsibility
-lack of priority on higher education
-lack of priority on financial stability

Thats my short list and im black fyi...

We are in dire need of "black people/culture reform",
Its getting embarrasing, especially in Atlanta

Im glad that a celeb called beyonce and jayz out. They are great role models and actually do alot for the black community but they dont really address social issues pertaining to race

Jayz might drop a verse or a check but thats about it in terms of his image
