Are yall stupid

The youth of today HAVE OPTIONS..you have free education, you have access to internet, you have education and job programs, grants, loans, you have opportunities. What you choose to do with your time and money is your issue.

Actually people are not poor because they cannot get a job. Some people w/ jobs are living in poverty. Most people are a product of their environment and their suroundings. If you work a job 40 hours/week and only make $6.50 an hour, you are not making enough money to live on your own, and feed and clothe yourself.

CHUUUUUUUUCH

To piggy back off of this...

"Hell our Phone has been off for bout 2 years cuz we cant afford it! I work n pay for cable, and internet n pay half of th rent cuz she cant do it all her self. Befo you jump to mind thinkin oh get your education, u are wrong. How the fu*k can you strive to greatness when sumone has the thumb on you holding you down tellin u NO!?!"

What do you need cable for......hmmm $75 a month

No home phone but i bet you have a cell phone..is it basic service? Or do you have ringtone, internet, text messages, mp3 capabilities, etc. hmmmmm either $45 or almost $100 a month

I do believe you need the internet connection so I won't say sh*t about that right now.......

Who has their "thumb" on you?

"My school doest give 2 shyts bout blacks! MY ex was in all honest class, no baby, finished college, and still in the got damn gheto!"

And your point is..... my school didnt give sh*t about me either, my principal was a known clan's man...and his last words to me upon getting my diploma was "keepin on running son, keep on running"...as he smirked" My parent(s) made less than 25k combined with three kids. I grew up n a trailer...got scorned as a kid..but i used my brains and athlete prowess to get me to where I am. Went to an Ivy League Institution, could my parents afford it HELL fu*k NO, do the Ivy's give athletic scholarships, NOPE, did I pass up free rides to UGA and GaTech, HELL YEA becasue of the opportunity that this school would present me I choice the Ivy. I struggled in college, took out crazy loans so my family could do for themselfs and my younger siblings, I man'd up. I'm 27 now and make 6 figs, own my own home, drive an 06 bimmer, lil brother graduated from college and now lives in NC, and has a good job, and lil sister graduated from college, and is now going to med school. This is all from the southern equivalent of the urban ghetto. Excuses are for the birds.......Read John McWorters Winning the RaceBeyond the Crisis in Black America

So your ex, what did she major in.....something feasible or a bullsh*t "Parks and Recreation degree" or majored in "Party and Bullsh*t"

Question for you, is why after the education did she go back to teh ghetto, did she or you for that matter think of relocating? Complacient? I left high school in georgia to attend college in Providence, and moved to DC for my job. There are no job opportunities where I came from so i moved here, and now I can send cash home to my peeps. The problem with the ghetto is that it creates a generational "security blanket"

So what do you use the internet for.....to talk on boxden.....download music and live the fantasy hustler life....watch pr0n or movies....or do you use it to do work....research....search for a job....research for a job.....hmmmmm you tell me playa....

Don't respond with no emotional bi*ch sh*t either. You give me concrete example on how you are being held down.

sh*t is understood that
a. we will not get reprarations
b. you have to work twice as hard to prove yourself
c. our own people will pull you down before the "man" does

with that understood what is your excuse. I'm waiting.....................
b.


nicely said! :applause:

I think that there are people out there who have it worse than most can imagine and fall into bad situations and make bad choices. There are those who are in those same situations and make totally different choices and end up making something of themselves. Then there are those who think that they have it bad and compare themselves to poverty stricken folk and are just basically bi*chin and complaining that they aint got the sh*t they see celebs having on CRIBS or in the magazines. When all the while there are people out there would love to walk in their shoes. Its all about your mindset, your values, and your beliefs that make or break you. Most people have so much to be thankful but can only focus on what they dont have rather than what they do have.

Everyone who has a goal and who set their mind to it has succeeded.

No but I'm saying everyone who has set a goal and put their mind to it (ie gettin' out tha hood) has done it. It's not easy, but if you really want to do it, you stop talkin' to the same people, you stop spending every needless penny. Throw your social life out the window and just study work sleep and sh*t, eventually that goal will come closer and closer. It's all about how uncomfortable people are willing to make themselves in order to attain their goals.

Thats a fu*king excuse..get a grip on reality. Why you gotta have a TV? Read the fu*king paper..I understand maybe for the older 50+ generation, but kids this day and age have no excuse

get an education
get a fu*king job
save your fu*king money

however this is what happens
go to school
socialize, play sports, make friends

get a job
so they can buy ring tones, nikes and sh*t

Wrong again racist a**hole. I am and I grew up upper middle class. My grandparents were poor though. I was lucky enough to have parents who came out of poverty to make it in life. They provided for me and gave me a good education as a child and teen. I just can't stand to see people so insensitive to the poor when I know I have poor people in my family who are hard working trying to make ends meet. It's not always as easy as it looks. May God make you poor and make you feel it first hand - that's my prayer for you.
