They’re standing on the corner and they can’t speak English.
I can’t even talk the way these people talk:
Why you ain’t,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be…
And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
And then I heard the father talk.
Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.
People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we’ve got these knuckleheads walking around.
The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.
$500 sneakers for what?
And they won’t spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
Where were you when he was 2?
Where were you when he was 12?
Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn’t know that he had a pistol?
And where is the father? Or who is his father?
People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn’t that a sign of something gone wrong?
People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn’t that a sign of something?
Isn’t it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
What part of Africa did this come from??
We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a thing about Africa …..
I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.
I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don’t have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa . So stop, already! ! !
With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ……… And all of them are in jail.
Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem.
We have got to take the neighborhood back.
People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different ‘husbands’ — or men or whatever you call them now.
We have millionaire football players who cannot read.
We have million-dollar basketball players who can’t write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.
Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.
We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..
We cannot blame the white people any longer.’

I lived in Dallas my entire life, I’m 25 now. And I went to a mostly black highschool. The sad thing is, this is not a tiny minority. 100% of the black kids in that school were walking talking lil’ Wayne knock offs with $200 sweatshop sneakers and teeth in need of braces.
Getting into fights in the hall way and wearing gang colors.
Their parents have failed them.
This is not the exemption. They are the standard.
And they are proud of this. They call it ‘da culture’. Culture does not exist. It is an illusion, an excuse to do misdeeds. Culture ultimatly boils down to doing stupid shit that you know damn well is stupid shit, but they do it any way because they’re just bad people who don’t care.
I would give the standard line about “not ALL blacks are like this”, but no. THEY ARE. If you know someone who is acting like this, tell them the truth, you ae acting like a minstrel show buffoon.
If you are asked a question by one, answer with, “In English please.”
And if they start accusing you of making them speak white, reply in German. It’s not ‘acting white’, it’s simply ‘acting like a functioning human being.’
Because if you’re not part of the solution to a problem that affects all of us, you are part of the problem. Inaction is not a viable option.
