    Niggas always wanna “discuss” racism and injustice instead of fighting it. Zzzzzz

      THERE HAS TO BE A DISCUSSION FIRST. YOU SAY THAT THEY DONE THIS ALREADY? JUST LIKE THE KEEP MAKING THE MOVIE SUPERMAN OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND NOW WITH BETTER GRAPHICS IN THIS GENERATION OF MOVIES, WE MUST DISCUSS RACISM OVER AND OVER AGAIN WITH A DIFFERENT NARRATIVE. THE YOUNG BULLS 10-20 YR OLD ARE LOST MISINFORMED ETC ETC. TO MUCH SELF HATRED. THEY DONT UNDERSTAND THE ONCEPT OF BRINGIN WEALTH TO OUR CULTURE OR COMMUNITY, I.E., THEY WOULD RATHER BUY WHITE BRANDS INSTEAD OF SUPPORTING BLACK BRANDS. RAPERRS TELLING KIDS TO DO MOLLY PERK N LEAN IN SONGS N USING MONEY AS A PHONE. WHAT’S THAT FOR? ARE THEY STUNTING ON US, THE FANS, CUZ WE DON’T HAVE THAT? WE KNOW YOU GOT MONEY.. COON SHIT! RICH NIGGA-STILL A NIGGA. WHITE MEN LAUGHING AT THE COONS. SHOW UR WEALTH WITH PROPERTIES ETC ETC.

        BLACK PEOPLE HATE EACH OTHER AND DON’T EVEN REALIZE WHY. THERE HAS TO BE A NEW DISCUSSION . THROUGH DISCUSSION, YOU EDUCATE PEOPLE. IN ORDER TO FIGHT RACISM, WE HAVE TO CHANGE OURSELVES FIRST. THIS IS PART OF THE DISCUSSION TO EDUCATE PEOPLE ABOUT THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED AND HOW WE CAN CHANGE THEM.. AS SAID IN THE VIDEO, RACISM ISNT ALWAYS ABOUT WHAT THEY DO TO YOU, BUT ALSO WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU, AS IN OPPORTUNITY WISE. WE HAVE TO GET AWAY FROM THIS NARRATIVE OF FUCK THE NEXT BLACK MAN , HE’S CORNY OR HE’S OLD WASHED AND CAN’T DO THIS OR THAT ANYMORE. THIS ONLY HAPPENS WITH ANYTHING BLACK. FOR EXAMPLE, WHITE ROCK ARTIST MAKE ALBUMS AND TOUR WELL INTO 60’S 700’S YRS OF AGE. BLACK PEOPLE SAY A RAPPER SHOULDN’T BE RAPPIN AT 40. WHY? IF RAP IS SOMETHING YOU DO(AS IN THESE RAPPERS THAT LIE IN THEIR SONGS)) AND HIP HOP IS SOMETHING YOU LIVE, THEN WE NEED AN ARTIST LIKE JAY Z TO TALK ABOUT THE MISTAKES HE’S MADE AND HOW NOT TO MAKE THEM ANYMORE. IT’S A BLUEPRINT TO LIFE AND LIVING. AND EVEN AT HIS AGE NOW, HE STILL TELLS THE TRUTH AND THAT HE’S NOT PERFECT AND STILL MAKES MISTAKES. HE TELLS THT HE DONE WHAT YOU ARE DOING, BASICALLY SAYING I GOT HIT BY A CAR CROSSING THE STREET BEFORE FOR NOT LOOKING BOTH WAYS. SO HE TELLING YOU THIS ABOUT ALOTTA LIFE ISSUES. NIGGAS AINT TRYNA HEAR THAT. THEY WOULD RATHER GET HIT BY A CAR ON SOME KOOL SHIT CUZ THEYRE TRYING TO LISTEN TO OG OPINION. WHITE PEOPLE DONT HAVE THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM. ITS THE SAME WITH TECHNOLOGY AND SCIENCE, THERE ARE BLUEPRINTS TO WHAT SCIENTIST HAVE DONE TO TRY TO CURE DISEASE , SO THAT A YOUNGER SCIENTIST KNOWS THAT CERTAIN APPROACHES DON’T WORK AND ARE A WASTE OF TIME. SO WHY CAN’T AN OLDER WEALTHY RICH RAPPER SCHOOL THE MISINFORMED,(YOUNG AND OLD) ON THE BLUEPRINT TO SUCCESS? THE YOUN MISINFORMED WOULD RATHER LISTEN TO RAPPERS LIKE DRAKE FUTURE BOSSIE STUNT ON US AND SHOWING OFF AND BRAGGING ABOUT BEING ADDICTED TO OPIATES. THEY ARE TELLING THE YOUTH IT’S KOOL TO DRINK LEAN DO PERKS, ZANNY, MOLLY ETC ETC. THEY ARE TELLING YOUTH TO BECOME DRUG ADDICTS. I LOVE FUTURE’S MUSIC AND IT DOESNT INFLUENCE ME TO DO ANY DRUG. I LOVE HOW MELODIC IT IS. BUT FUTURE IS A COONE. HE’S NOT A ROLE MODEL FOR ANY ONE, NOT EVEN HIS SON. WHEN CRACK CAME OUT YRS AGO AND PEOPLE NEVER KNEW THE EFFECTS OF IT, RAPPERS LIKE DMX, WU TANG BLACK MOON AND A BUNCH MORE RAPPED ABOUT IT LIKE IT WAS THE KOOL THING TO DO. 20 AND 30 YEARS LATER WE SEE THIS IS NOT THE CASE. LOOK AT DMX CRACKHEAD NOW. AND SOME OF THE OTHER WASHED CRACKHEADS. DOES FUTURE KNOW HE’S INFLUENCING LITTLE KIDS THAT LOOK UP TO HIME TO MISUSE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS? DOES HE WANT HIS KIDS TO SEE THIS? DOES HE ANT HIS KIDS TO TAKE LEAN ETC ETC AT 10 YRS OLD? IN 20 YRS FUTURE WILL BE WHAT DMX IS NOW. OOOH BUT I HEARD THAT HE DOESN’T REALLY DO THOSE DRUGS, HE JUST RAPS ABOUT THAT STUFF CUZ OTHERS ARE DOING IT, WANT TO HER IT, AND IT’S WHAT’S POPIN NOW. SO THE FURTHER DESTRUCTION OF OUR COMMUNITY AND CULTURE OF RAP IS BEING DIMINISHED AND INFLUENCED BY A NEW LINE OF DRUG ADDICTS. SO I GUESS FUTURE USES MONEY AS A PHONE TOO BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING IT LIKE HE RAPS ABOUT USING DRUG. A DISCUSSION AND REEDUCATION IS NEEDED. JAY NEEDS HELP. PEOLE WANNA SAY NEGATIVE THING LIKE, “PEOPLE ALWAYS WANT TO HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT RACISM INSTEAD OF FIGHTING.” HE CAN’T DO IT ALONE. AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO FIGHT IT, INSTEAD OF CRITICIZING A PERSON FOR WANTING TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ? SO MUCH SELF HATRED…
