  • Re: You ever have a interview and not get the job?

    I interviewed 10 people this week with the intention of only hiring 3 of them.

    It's a part of the employment process.

    I halfway agree.

    I don't expect ain't shit rappers to step up to the plate. But you got half stepping rappers like Drake who just a few years ago came out of left field in all black, singing about catching bodies with crowds of niggas behind me trying to appropriate that image of the hood. Yet, when the hood is rising up to address its ills, he tucks all back in. That's fucked up and he deserves to be called out.

    And it ain't just him. If Jay Z can make a song in solidarity, if Game and Snoop can meet with the mayor of Compton, and if rappers from T.I. to Bow Wow can march, then NOBODY is above or beyond speaking up. This is still a culture unless y'all forgot.

    Thats the issue right there. Would you rather have T.I. stand in front of the podium and give a 20 minute speech about the issues going on in the community, or would it be better to leave speeches like that to Minister Farrakhan and Al Sharpton?

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, rappers are the worst role models because, generally speaking, they didn't go to college and have a very naive, narrow minded understanding of how the world works. People with college degrees are more qualified to speak about the issues going on in the community Minister Farrakhan and Al Sharpton notwithstanding.

    There is no qualification when speaking on the human right to live. Farrakhan will be the first person to tell you that. He's always encouraging and embracing rappers to step up to the mic and speak about positivity. You think going to college is going to give you a perspective on the hood that being in the hood won't? Just taking some well timed trips to these police stations, District offices, courthouses, and political events will show you what's going on.

    A degree can only equip you with a structured understanding of how bureaucracies work. For the record, there isn't a thing anyone can say about this shit in 2016 that hasn't already been said by countless intellectuals decades and centuries ago. So no, I don't need them to speak but if speaking will increase the attention of the subject at hand, speak out and speak loud.

  • Re: Roland Martin appears on Wendy Williams and school her on HBCU's, civil rights, police,etc.

    I hate some of you niggas.

    So the bitch was talking reckless about some shit she was ignorant of and you disapproved.

    Then the bitch invites the man who already corrected her on his platform, on HER platform to educate others like herself who may be just as ignorant... and you STILL disapprove.

    Fuck y'all miserable ass niggas. That's like getting mad at a fat person for losing weight because they were fat in the first place.
