    Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.

    Wow! I haven't been in Brooklyn since about two weeks but I didn't see anything like that anywhere.

    I especially like the police brutality one because the others are subjective. I always wonder why blacks take stereotypical roles (drug dealer, maid, poor person, fat loud woman, etc.) but then the actors say that they need to work. I always ask why blacks eat all that crap and they point out that its cheap and fast and I eat my bun and cheese and patty and coco bread so ah di same ting. I went to two years of high school here and I used to see the African American pickney dem get detention all the time but people used to say that it was because they acted up or tried to play hard because that was seen as positive in the black community.

    But police discrimination is objective. No one can argue about that.... Raw statistics.

    This is true.

    Black kids are more likely to be part of a lower socioeconomical class. Kids of poorer backgrounds disproportionately misbehave at schools. The reason for this is up for debate.


    I agree though. Stop and frisk is a serious case of racial discrimination.

    stop living in the projects all your lives

    stop puttin rims on your care when you livin paycheck to paycheck,

    stop sagging your pants to your ankles,

    stop spendin the whole day on twitter talkin about Beyonce, Rihanna, Chris Brown etc

    stop feeding your kids fried chicken and kool aid for breakfast

    stop cussing out your kids in public especially

    stop flooding the lines of Mickey dees, Burger King, Popeye etc everyday

    stop calling each other n word in every sentence

    stop waiting to cop the latest jordans and purchasin it off of your credit card

    stop acting a fool in public

    stop wasting your salary on remy weave

    stop makin different kids for different random thugs

    stop limiting yourselves and living on self pity



    Whites are the least of the problems facing Black America right now

    i always wonder what have you accomplished in life or what path have you paved in you life, what direction have your gauge your moral campus on, that gives you reason to stand on your milk cart and talk down at black people, like you have set some barometer by which they should measure success.

    i actually agree with some of what he said. it's fine to point out where ppl are falling short and can do better, but there's a way in which you do it. honestly, i feel a lot of ppl end up limiting themselves when it comes to how much they can/can't accomplish b/c they don't open their minds enough. could be due to the fact that they just aren't exposed to options or just don't feel like it..idk. ::shrug::

    yeh like which ones?

    stop living in the projects, living in the project makes or breaks a man character

    Stop eating fast food, wow and strike on a mans character

    stop sagging you pants, or now thats a sure sign you will amount to nothing, you are destined to the confines of our prison systems.

    I am stating the facts about a high percentage of Blacks in this country.

    I did not create the problems, I highlighted them
