I’m truly sorry if this offends anyone out there, but I’m so sick and tired of seeing people of my demographic wasting their lives away in the chaos that is poverty. The knowledge is all around us, you just have to know where to get it. I hate when I see someone of the age of like 24 with the reading comprehension of a toddler. It’s so sad. I don’t know whether or not to smack them or teach them. Yeah yeah, it begins with the parents BUT… At a certain age you have to take responsibility for yourself and pick a book up. It’s not hard, it’s actually very simple. African-Americans used to be killed for reading books and trying to gain knowledge, guess it’s true what they say. “Knowledge is power”. I just think it’s a shame that we as a people don’t want anything to do with a book now that we’re actually allowed to read them. We should be taking every opportunity we get to learn and be successful. I guess the behavior has been rooted too deeply into the African-American psyche. Maybe we don’t want to learn anything, maybe we’ve been set up for failure, maybe my brothers and sisters will always be statistics, when will it end?

You know sometimes I wonder about people and what they do and if what they do is as sinless as what I do, and you want to know another thing… WHO F*%#!ING CARES!!! I mean come on are we really saying that Jay-Z worships the devil? Why not ask him yourself and stop coming up with half baked excuses for why he’s rich. And as for the whole Illuminati thing, if he WAS in it you wouldn’t know and besides, and this isn’t to bring Jay-Z or anyone down but the Illuminati is a very very old and wealthy organization made up of only the most elite of the rich and powerful. They don’t want anybody telling their business, especially someone famous with the world watching their every movement. I believe this is just a way to attack those who are wealthy and black. Your basically stating that the only way for an African-American to achieve wealth and power is to make blood sacrifices and worship the devil. What a load of bull. This can’t be serious. That’s like a spy going up to someone and saying, Hey I’m a spy. WHAT?! That’ll never happen. I’m loosing faith in mankind everyday, I simply ask that you go look up the facts and stop with the publicity. All you want is to make some money off another guys name, that’s so lame of you. Go get a life and get off his balls.
Dear young black men in America today
Why do we hate each other
Why do we live this way
If we wanted to we could be great
But instead we scuffle over chump change
And fight over the last pea on the plate
At all times I wonder when…when…and again
When will we stop indulging in the insanity of sin
We are a nation of black, red, and green
How dare we put ourselves down to the point we can’t succeed
How dare they tell us that our kind will not achieve
Its always going to be like this well that’s not what I believe.
This is a true problem that I believe needs to be dealt with but before anything can done about the problem, first people must know what the problem is.
