Kids are kids. When I was a kid I remember white teenagers putting on certain types of gothic music and fighting and pushing one another. That is animalistic also. The thing is that both the parents and the stars who are making off millions of the families of these kids are responsible.

I hate to say it, I mean I really hate to say it, but I think Michael Jordan is the biggest sell-out in the history of black history. It's true Michael Jordan is the greatest player to ever play the game of basketball, but outside of basketball what did he stand for? Who's Michael Jordan Brand name biggest supporter? Young black men. Has Michael Jordan ever took a stance conceding anything that involves the inner city? No!
Do you know what young black men in the inner cities do to own a pair of new Jordan shoes when they parents can't afford them? They work extra long hours, they sell drugs they rob people. Let's say you're a young black kid that's in Jr. High school & you made it on the basketball team & you want to be like Mike, but there's no way your parents can afford a pair of shoes or clothes that cost over $100.00. So let's say you can see what's going on in your community & you can see who's making a lot of money & you know how they getting that money & it from hard work. What do you think that kid is going to do to get a pair of Jordan shoes, work long hours at a fast food restaurant? Some may, but many don't. Michael Jordan said he want support certain politicians because white kids in the suburb buy Jordans. I don't see a lot of white kids from the suburb wearing a lot of Jordan Brand clothing or shoes. Do you know what black kids in a all white suburb that have a nose like Jordan & that's dark brown like Jordan look like in Jordan apparel? They look suspicious, not only to white folks, but also to upper society black folks. A lot of upper class black folks look at Jordan shoes & clothing as ghetto clothing. Has Jordan ever stood for anything that 's pertaining to the inner cities? No. Do Michael Jordan vote on issues that will send budget funding to inner city programs? Maybe I don't know, but he don't support politicians that argue for more budget spending be spent on inner city programs. Not to long ago, from state to state, shoppers punched & beat each other to get their hands on a pair of $170.00 Air Jordan XI Gamma Blues. Do you know how much those Jordan shoes cost to make? Maybe less than $20..00 at a factory over seas where the working conditions are very poor. According to Forbes, Michael Jordan make roughly $80 million a year with most of that dough coming from Jordan Brand sales. Why do black people care sooooooooo much about celebrities & sports figures that don't give a dam about us? Michael Jordan would more than likely snub me if I was in the same room as him.

<quoted text>Yeah but does IQ really tells us about who is intelligent and who isn't? And if I recall I believe ours are higher than foreign blacks.
I know this is Off topic but I've been wanting to educate this transversite about African people in its country.
In the 2000 U.S. census it was revealed that African Immigrants were the most educated immigrant group in the United States even when compared to Asian immigrants. Some 48.9 percent of all African immigrants hold a college diploma.This is more than double the rate of native-born white Americans, and nearly four times the rate of native-born African Americans. According to the 2000 Census, the rate of college diploma acquisition is highest among Egyptian Americans at 59.7 percent, followed closely by Nigerian Americans at 58.6 percent.
In 1997, 19.4 percent of all adult African immigrants in the United States held a graduate degree, compared to 8.1 percent of adult white Americans and 3.8 percent of adult black Americans in the United States, respectively. According to the 2000 Census, the percentage of Africans with a graduate degree is highest among Nigerian Americans at 28.3 percent, followed by Egyptian Americans at 23.8 percent.
Of the African-born population in the United States age 25 and older, 87.9% reported having a high school degree or higher, compared with 78.8% of Asian-born immigrants and 76.8% of European-born immigrants, respectively.
This success comes in spite of facts such as that more than 75 percent of the African foreign born in the United States have only arrived since the 1990s and that African immigrants make up a disportionately small percentage of immigrants coming to the United States such as in 2007 alone African immigrants made up only 3.7 percent of all immigrants in coming to the United States and again in 2009 they made up only 3.9 percent of all immigrants making this group a fairly recent to the United States diversity.
In terms of education as a whole African immigrants and American born to African immigrants they slightly outperform Asian Americans, they outperform White Americans at double their rate, and outperform Black Americans who are descendants of Africans from the Atlantic slave trade at four times their rate.
Of the 8 percent of the Ivy League Universities' such as Princeton population which are Black students at an overwhelming 50-66 percent was made up of Black African immigrants, Caribbean immigrants, and American born to those immigrants.Many top universities report that a disproportionate of the black student population consists of recent immigrants, their children, or were mixed race.
African Immigrants and Americans born of African immigrants have been reported as having some of the lowest crime rates in the United States and being one of the unlikeliest groups to go into or commit crime. African immigrants have even been reported to have lowered crime rates in neighborhoods in which they have moved into.

Black immigrants from Black majority countries are revealed to be much healthier than Blacks from countries that are not majority Black and where they constitute a minority. Thus African immigrants are often much healthier than American-born Blacks and Black immigrants from Europe
The average annual personal income of African immigrants is about $26,000 nearly $2,000 more than that of workers born in the U.S. This might be because 71 percent of the Africans 16 years and older are working, compared to 64 percent of Americans. This is believed to be due larger percentage of African immigrants have higher educational qualifications than Americans, which results in higher per capita incomes for African immigrants and Americans born to African immigrants
Outside of educational success specific groups have found economic success and have made many contributions to American society such as Ugandan Americans. Recent statistics indicate that Ugandans have become one of the country's biggest contributors to the economy, their contribution, amounting to US$1 billion in annual remittances which are disproportionately large contributions despite a community and population of less than 13,000.
African immigrants like many other immigrant groups are likely to establish and find success in small businesses. Many Africans that have seen the social and economic stability that comes from ethnic enclaves such as Chinatowns have recently been establishing ethnic enclaves of their own at much higher rates to reap the benefits of such communities.

Maybe you should take a few lessons from the African man next door. If you believe in the bell curve theory then you are definantely an illiterate.

@The nMe Within...,

My only obligation is to pay the taxes on the profits I earn..that in turn filters down to my community i.e., I make up part of my communities tax base.

MJ doesnít have a specific community like I do. MJ is typical of corporate America..they make massive profits from the whole and refuse to pay their fair share of taxes..i.e., your federal governments income.

If your Federal Government is deprived of income that in turn has a detrimental effect on inner Cities/States that have a low tax base due to the lack of jobsÖare you with me so far.

You end with a case where the Governors of individual US States go crying cap in hand to Federal Government for handouts but the coffers are dry.

All that said, you have no right to interfere in how MJ conducts business..you do however have the right to ensure he pays his fair share of taxes.

The only way you can do that is by voting for a politician that is bent on raising taxes on the wealthy, and closing the loopholes they take advantage ofÖor you can vote for obstructionist that are bent on blocking this process.

Donít live in hope..MJ is not breaking any laws..he is laughing at your emotional outbursts..you start talk about taxes he will soon prick his ears up.

I left Moss-Side in 1983 for the US and it was all right..then it suddenly kicked off..I thought wtf. My mates where writing me and sending local news papers..I thought this cannot be.

I ignored it for ages thinking it would just blow over..then my mates started writing evil letters calling me all kinds and it got to meÖI went through a period of depression and I started neglecting my responsibilities.

I had a job in a tenement building and the halls ended up strewn with trashÖI then received my marching orders.

All my money was tied up in my ride..I headed for Chicago and sold it and headed back home to EnglandÖbest choice I made because I now have a beautiful Daughter

How are you any different than Michael Jordan?

1) You worship White women and lift them up and only did for them.
2) You put all Black women down even when they excel out of spite and jealousy because you didn't accomplish much in your own life!
3) You haven't done anything for your Mother, Aunts, Sister or any young relatives.
4) You harass young IR BW on forums for moving on from childish, insecure, Unproductive BM because your one of them!
5) You co sign with Irresponsible, Black men who lack common sense when it comes to Black women, children and the community out of loyalty
6) You don't give back, mentor nor are you an example or Pillar that any Young Black women can admire!

These words come from a man who has seen most Black men grow up to become irresponsible, self-absorbed, excessively entitled, weak marginal men, largely because they were coddled at home. This does not always happen at the hands of a single mother, but it almost always occurs due to parents who do not understand their role in raising intelligent and responsible human beings.

Letís be clear: If you raise your son to be a boy, heís going to remain a boy. Typically, strong male role models make it easier to build manhood; mothers cannot usually do it alone.

This is a comedic exaggeration, but perhaps we can think while we laugh. And before we get into the tired diatribe about this being some kind of assault on single Black mothers, understand that if I hate single Black mothers, that means I hate my late grandmother.

My own mother was a 17-year old single mom until she married my second father three years after I was born. And it was her commitment to raising me with more discipline than my male friends that guided me away from the same gutters, prison cells, and rehab clinics that many of them occupy to this day.

So, if you want your son to grow up to be a horrible father and husband for somebody else, here are a few things you can do:

1. Never make him accountable. If he goes to jail, mortgage your house to pay for the attorney. If he gets fired from his fifth job in a row, of course itís because heís Black. Anything that goes wrong in his life, explain to him why none of it is ever his fault. Make a long list of excuses for everything he does. If he gets in trouble at school, itís the teacherís fault. If he has an angry outburst and attacks someone, itís because he had too much sugar. Remember: Nothing that he ever does wrong, to anyone, at any time, is ever his fault. Jesus will make him better eventually.

2. Allow him to be lazy. Clean his room for him, wash his clothes, donít make him do any chores. Donít make him work for anythingÖ.EVER. When heís 32-years old, let him live in your basement, spends this days in his drawz smoking weed, playing Xbox and trying to get sex. Heíll get that record deal eventually.

3. Donít ever force him to manage his money. Buy him a lot of really expensive material possessions, like $250 Air Jordans and donít make him work for any of that money. If he wrecks the new car you bought him, just buy him another one. Donít talk to him about saving, investing or being a good provider. If he wants that 14th tattoo on his neck, go ahead and give it to him.

4. Congratulate him for being a ďplaya.Ē Let him treat his girlfriends like garbage without your saying a word. He goes around sorry black males who validate that treating black women bad is encouraged and accepted. Don't say anything when he lives off women. When he tells you that he got a fourth girl pregnant, just congratulate him and agree to watch the kids while his baby mama is at the club.

When the fourth babyís mama asks you about the other girls coming to the house, lie for him so as not to blow his cover. The world is his oyster, and he has a right to sow his oats without any semblance of responsibility because he's a black man. He doesn't have to attend school, nor save his money. Donít forget that you need to save money to pay his child support for him so he can be free to make more kids without the burden of those gold-digging newborn babies. He will proudly boast of his living off women or he's looking for his next meal ticket from an educated woman he can deceive.

5. Donít make him get an education. If he brings home straight Ds on his report card, just remember that heís the best player on the basketball team as well as the best playa as a man.. Go buy him something nice to make him feel better, since those bad grades are going to hurt his self-esteem.
