    I can get behind investing in schools tho, but that’s where it stops as far as money is concerned

    Nah French Kev and FUPM are right. The resources in the hood are non existant and it makes us start 10 steps behind those with access to better.

    At the same time we have to take personal responsibility for ourselves and what we place importance on. Niggas will really be in the hood fresh with fucked up credit and unpaid bills. So there is a complete paradigm shift that needs to happen as far as how we think.

    My cynical nature leads me to believe things will never change tho.

    How can I help you if I cant trust you?

    ^ this one stuck…

    I feel compelled to help people natural

    but there’s always that voice in my head, “he tryna play you”

    that defense mechanism SICK mentioned

    growing up in the hood, you gotta play every scenario out in your head, then proceed with caution.

    but that vid JDS up’d yesterday with that homeless dude might change things, the next time a nigga ask for change.

    At this point I ignore b listers and sneak disses from herbs on the fringes.

    They are the “cleaning fish”of the nah ecology.Im shark status.
    found it`s mark?

    all these black miionaires need to come together and funnel a substancial amount of money into black communities SPECIFICALLY to improve thr infastructure of the schools…provide more resources etc


    i think these kinds of things have been tried time and time again. but there are always efforts to destroy that kind of thing.

    just look at what happen when suge irv and that other nigga tried to create their own record company and provide health and retirement plans for rappers. look at the panthers. look at all these athletes man if they pooled their money together and tried to do something positive u think it would be easy? u dont think cia fbi etc wouldnt look into it, it ouldnt be painted as pro-black, racist etc?

  7. O Says:

    I agree with the comments above. Improving infrastructure is huge, but if you dont change the thought process of the people, they will not utilize it. More than likely, they would fuck it all back up again.

    the flow is silly (peshi voice)

  10. Gob Bluth Says:

    If there is a concrete plan to help our schools, by all means i’m signing that check, i’m not paying any black tax tho

  11. The Shot Clock Says:

    the black community getting its shit together would be tantamount to a revolution in this country.

    beccause that would mean, just to give one example, the militaru industrial complex would have to collapse. the american prison system is the largest in the world, a multi billion dollar business whose life blood is black people.

  12. harlem world Says:

    WE are the resources

    in economics, people are resources

    “human resources”

    44-45 million african americans

    thats alotta resources right there

  13. cOLD Says:

    collectively unfortunetly it wont happen on that scale.

    sad truth

    change starts in the home though.

    and if you can reach out and help the kid down the street (mentor) we’ll see change over the years.

    fact is you can’t change what took 400 years to create in 5-10 or even 20 years.

    how u gon change the thought process when ya school dont een got a fuckin library and its 2013

    how u gon change the thought process when more niggas gettin killed n da hood then in iraq


    first you must provide ADEQUATE RESOURCES that will enable you gain knowledge and change your thought process

    in 2013 the resources for young black kids in philly chicago detroit miami atlanta all hoods in the country are SUB PAR..BELOW STANDARD

    so how.da fuck u gonna change.the thought process when your not equilled wit the proper tools to do so?

    the hood is the.hood because of the lack of RESOURCES


    1.I may be an asshole..bjt im not a piece of shit

    2.It is impossible for a black perso. to be racist towards a white person

    3. There are still a ton construction workers n the u.s even though white unions & mexicans have taken away alot of the job opps builders…you raise a good point about who would get the contracts …thats why that money would also be used to START a BLACK owned and operated construction company that would rebuild the infastructure

  15. French Kevin Says:

    Any groups, organisation, corporation, ect…, in this country, before it becomes too powerful for the government to control, is going to have to make a choice on its route to prominence: Get down or lay down.

    I personally don’t think it’s race related. (ie: FBI vs KKK in the 60’s) I think it’s power related. They kill leaders of principle, black and white, and allow the corrupted ones in, black and white.
