Dude has a 100% graduation to college rating. Every kid who graduates goes to a four year college. 80% of the school is black or latino….also on avg. in Connecticut black students are at least 3 grade levels behind their white peers.

  49. Joe 88 Says:

    Polo is the shit, but I don’t like it, not because it’s wack or anything, but because EVERYBODY WEARS IT, clothes isnt like music where you’d be a clown if you didn’t like something cause everyone else like it, your waredrobe is like an extention of you (pause) & I don’t wanna look like that dude that wanna dress like everyone else.

    I BEEN HAD BEEN HAD POLO’S

    *dies*

    I will rock polo’s but without a doubt co-sign these statements, people get caught up like they have to rock polo and like polo is some elite status type shit that no one else has, when in fact damn nigh everyone has it, the kid in that been had polo’s vid was a perfect example, shit was truly disturbing like OK we get it you got some polo’s good for you, but you didn’t start this shit I have been wearing polo’s since before you were born and someone needs to let the kid know it is OK to rock something else that is not polo.

    Okay, now i’m burning like 7 more cd’s for my homeboy right, but i’ma kill em by not putting labels on the cd’s, so he’ll have to go threw every cd till he finds that mainstream wave he wants to ride so much

  85. TheCo!!inB aka Portly Gentleman #1 Says:

    I couldn’t really fuck with that Tuxedo Ball shit…..i’m not into the seclusions of other blacks based on socioeconomic status…..i’m not saying they had to let the hood in but giving affluent black kids access to affluent black adults is like inbreeding to me….you have to let dollars circulate. those affluent kids will be good regardless because they have access to better schools and funds for college. these little black babies in these horrible living conditions and even worse schools need all the help they can get and I’m pretty sure that’s what I’m gonna start devoting more of my time to when i’m not raising my kids or bull shittin on Nah……….and wtf were they all holding hands singing Deon Warwick for….rich niggas are fuckin wierd.
