    B.E.T, Telemundo, Record companies, Beats by Dre… All white owned!

    He makes some good points, but for now, it's nothing but loud barks of a toothless dog.

    As far as controlling their own lives is concerned, the future for American minorities, remains foggy…

  2. What is the solution? Do we just not give a damn about changing our future? We have to look forward to some guiding principle, even if it's coming from a toothless dog..

  3. Harry Merkin says:

    Music has great influence. If I listen to fast music, I get worked up and energetic. If I listen to slow mellow music, it makes me relaxed. The words of a song effect me as well. A sad song makes me melancholy and a hateful song makes me angry. Black artists need to make more positive, uplifting music to empower the youth, instead of glorifying guns, drugs and the gangsta mentality. Those young kids look up to those musicians. They can change the attitudes and futures for millions of black kids by using rap to promote good instead of evil.

    Hope is back our world will start tochange for the better if our youth listen and respond with positive energy threw song , dress , attitude and self education….I feel this young brotha… hes paying attention but he inspired me and gave me hope for my children and grandchildren…and Im.
    thankful

  5. Why we have to control the soundtrack to our own existence

  6. Why would you add a derogatory statement about the brothas physical appearance?? That was just assinine!! Not only are our youth influenced by music but this type of ignorance too. We know the solution but with comments like this….it's hopeless!

  7. Wow powerful……this brother soaks volumes..

  8. I meant speaks volumes…

  9. Why are there crakkkas and infiltrators commenting on a Black website? I don't care about the rest of y'all but I want them to leave us the fukk alone to solve our own problems. That is why we can't progress because we keep listening to these low level sub species who are melanin recessive and don't know the struggle we face because of them. They are not fighting against their own on our behalf so they need to back off our pages and discussions. It's time to Exodus social media because they have infiltrated.

    Harry Merkin I wrote a whole long response and it got deleted. Here we go again…

    First of all you shouldn't take what was said personal.

    Second after researching your links, I can see that you didn't take the time to critically think about the affects of Irish Slavery VS African Slavery. If you did you would see that residual affects of slavery of Africans are present in today's society.

    Yes, many Black folks are stuck in a fucked up mentality, but can you blame them? Especially when people like you, who feel the need to assert how their people struggled harder than others, comment on things you really know little about.

    We have enough to worry about in our communities, than to have people outside of the community telling us how we should be acting and living life. IF anything we need allies, people who will do the honest work to understand how poverty and the racist/classicism systems have had residuals affects on the current state we live in.

    You suggest that one should educate themselves through scholarships and loans and grants. Some of those are hard to come by and affect a students financial aid after their freshman year. Of course we have plenty of doctors, lawyers and other high professionals who are part of the Black community. However, that doesn't mean EVERYBODY can just climb their way out of poverty.

    The break down of the Black family, especially during slavery has a direct affect on our current situation. When you've seen years and years of generational poverty how could you want more for yourself? Someone has to expose you to the greater things in life (and I'm not referring to material possessions. ) When no one does this and everyday you go outside and know and feel the system that is in place does not really serve you, you'd be angry and mad too. It's what you do when faced with these adversities that distinguishes one person from another. However, that doesn't negate the fact that this country is still and will continue to be UNEQUAL.

    Your idea that homeless people chose to be homeless is ludicrous and let's me know you've never sat down with more than one homeless person to hear their story. Many of them were like you and I at one time or another. HOWEVER, again, when faced with adversities they were unable to bounce back. Losing your job, or being physically sick and loosing your healthcare, falling on hard times, is how people become homeless. Not all of them are druggies, and even the druggies have a story to tell. You shouldn't pass judgement ESPECIALLY when you don't like someone doing it to you.

    Thanks for the information, I will continue to research your points as I find them to very interesting.

  11. The whole conclusion of the matter, My people need to come back to Yah, follow the laws and commandments: read the KJV bible we are the chosen people.

  12. Puffshe Puf says:

    Blacks are not minorities smh

  13. Puffshe Puf They are in the sense of not owning anything collectively, being mainly consumers, & miseducated. 😉

  14. Lanette OracleMa'at-El Ra Speaks They're not commenting on his appearance, it's a metaphor that's the same as having a lot of bark with no bite. In other words, the metaphor means, the ideas and points the talker is presenting are good but no action is going to follow.

  16. Bwire Vincent says:

    Trevor Wiggins The solution is freedom. The American Black man fears freedom.

    He does great things, but has small dreams. For that reason, he desperately needs white man's guidance and approval on everything he does. It's not surprising that he always winds up getting the short end of the stick.

    How does white man, who hates Rap and Hip hop so much, end up owning the entire industry,including the brother in the video,who,I am sure has a mansion in one of those white suburbs, where he doesn't have to worry about exposing his family to the destructive crap he sells to ghetto folk?

    How does white man, who has nothing positive to say about ghetto folk, even start knocking on your ghetto door with a scholarship,the minute he finds out that your son, or brother plays good basketball, football e.t.c?

    Why is the NBA and NFL 70% Black, yet not a single Black owned team?

    The US is the capital city of capitalism, and the Blacks man has allowed himself to be bought,making him other people's property.

    Not even a million Ferguson protests can stop the Black St.Louis players from game practice.

  17. Bwire Vincent says:

    Lanette OracleMa'at-El Ra Speaks Loosen up a little.Don't always be on defensive mode; in order to come up with a lasting solution to a problem, you have to accept and learn from past mistakes.

    You can never be a success story without the haters.

    If you learn to listen first,you might learn a thing, or two, from those, 'crakkkas and infiltrators'. For example, you will need an outsider to help you build your first,Black owned automobile, train or aeroplane …

  18. Red Dipper says:

    Bwire Vincent I disagree with you brother…The same ingredients that stirred us up in the 50's will be the same ingredients that stirs us up now.

  19. Red Dipper says:

    Stormy Alexandra Perez This is where we continue to mess up….Sister you don't ever reason or look for validation from an ENEMY…..smh

  20. Sedrick M. Lewis says:

    I think we should just split from the economy and start our own things , it's been done b4 and white people got jealous and burned down our stuff. We can revive the Black Wallstreet. We send 20 trillion dollars alone around the holidays alone we need to control everything that we do and own it

  21. Connie Trinh says:

    WHO IS THIS GUY? wow. spoken so eloquently and backed by historical facts.

  22. Harry Merkin says:

    Also I find it sooooooo fascinating that you complain about white people posting on a black website. If we complained about a black person posting on a website……RACIST! YOU'RE RACIST! WHITEY IS RACIST! However you have the United NEGRO college fund. Only for blacks. Not mexican, chinese, Indian or white. VERY RACIST to want equality until we ask for it "both ways". You're a hypocrite and one of the reasons black people are hated young lady.

    I agree. Segregation is the answer. The whites can't complain about black crime in their neighborhood or shoot young black teens. Blacks can't complain about racism if they are pulled over by a black officer. Blacks support welfare and food stamps for blacks and whites do it for whites. It's a win-win situation. Neither race can use any unjustified excuse for anything.

  28. Stormy Alexandra Perez says:

    Harry Merkin HUH? Your hurt feelings are clouding your ability to understand nor analyze ANYTHING I said. You addressed only your hurt your feelings about exclusion. Nothing else about what I wrote.

    & now you're upset that there is United Negro College Fund? Because it doesn't represent all POC, in your mind. It doesn't have to, point-blank. People who share a common background/culture/history form groups and organizations all the time! So don't play that card dude.

    Black people are hated for a multitude of reasons, certainly isn't because of little ole' me. I won't populate a list for you, because frankly, you really only care about your hurt emotions. Thanks for conversation sir or the lack there of..

  29. Harry Merkin says:

    I wasn't addressing you Stormy. That comment was for the original poster.

  30. Frank Young says:

    Really, So ALL the deaths of the leaders of the Civil Rights movement and freedom fighter's will be vain. How about we get one neighborhood together? Our hatred for one another is too far embedded within,"ain't nobody tellin me what to do", has more POWER to keep us apart, and even if we started to bubble like a group that will do something positive for our people,"THEY WOULD CALL US A HATE GROUP"!

    Excellent, I hope his message reaches the ears of today's youth

  32. Lisa Jackson says:

    Wow! All this time I thought it was me, but yeah the media is dumbing down black youth. Take a moment and read these lyrics and you tell me what do they mean?

    Beyonce "7/11" lyrics.

    Yeah I spin' around and I kick it with you.

    NOTHING! That's what they want for our children, to be a drunk stripper, who thinks she's fresher than you. How many times a day do they play this song. Usher has a song telling young women he don't mind if you're a stripper. Weeknd "Girl you're perfect, and all of the girls in the video they're strippers too. Neyo "She Knows" they are strippers too. Or "I'm in love wit the coco" you go get another kilo. It's sad that black culture is being destroyed.

  33. ugh… you missed the whole point. its not the music that is influencing the people although, I agree, it can. Music can make you feel a certain way but his point was hip hop got angry because of what the system did to black/poor people. music isn't always about promoting a good message. it's about promoting a message that is important… like the system trying to kill off all inner city black/poor people. Not like news journalist were going into the ghetto to interview lolol. Its about promoting the message that needs to be heard.

  34. also agree that newer hip hop does need to change from glorifying guns and drugs to being about important messages again.

  35. I half agree, I don't think segregation is the key. it wasn't before and it won't be in the future.
