I really feel what the brother is rapping about, but just like I said before, black people need to be more intelligent when it comes to choices and respect. How can you have enlighenment and upliftment of the black race on the same myspace page that has an entry under the comments section of Chris Rock talkin' about how he and other blacks really "hate nigga's"? And the person that placed the comment was a white boy!!! Please let's be more educated my people. Irregardless of the song, what do you think was in this white boys' mind when he placed this video in the comments section? Oh, I get it. He's tired of HIS brothers and sisters acting all black, huh? As a race we need to read and understand more...
I agree, it is time to quit all of this fronting and faking on records. Rappers come out talking about what they got (which most of the time is a lie) and what they have did (another lie), and how much dope they have sold (also another lie, they probably haven't even sold a dime bag of weed) and kids and impressionable youth listens to the music and try to imitate what they hear. Music and hip hop is definitely not what it use to be. And like he stated these chicks are getting on YouTube shaking there ass, and for what? You low-life broad get more educated, wise-up, do something with your life. You should be a role model. You don't have to shake your ass and be half-naked to get attention....how about trying to hook a guy with your knowledge and your personality, not what is between your legs...I hope that this record reaches many more people because I enjoyed it, and I will be sure to spread the word about this song...Signed~Educated young black female with 2 degrees (BS and MS) working on a 3rd degree and never had to shake or sell ass to make it...
I'm on board with what the brother is saying. It expresses my very sentiment. It is these expressions by entertainers and other so-called celebrities that do nothing but perpetuate the very behaviors and attitudes that keep us stuck as a people. I can't help but think back to the days when real "gangstas" were well dressed, informed and articulate. Not just talkin' sh--, but getting out there in the community and making a difference. Not through peddling a persona, but by standing on principle and character.I would like to caution the sister in the previous post (MJ). We really need to be careful how we present ourselves. Let me preface this by saying that I adore and support women who are accomplished, especially black women. Having said that, don't feel it necessary to knock people over the head with credentials, as if that gives credibility to your position. (This is my opinion now and no harm intended) It does not. One of the problems in our community from what I see is that there is some sort of disconnect between those who are educated and/or credentialed and those who are like those we criticize because of perceptions (legitimate or otherwise). Sister let me reiterate I understand your point and applaud you for your accomplishments past present and future. That all has its place though. I just choose to be on a plane without the adornments, just a brother with a mind and ideas.(spoken in love) Peace.If you are so interested, my (fairly new) BLOGhttp://brothafromanotherplanet.blogspot.com
