sport and music is just an entraitenement
we need to focus about education science academics like asians
everybody respect asians because they value education
i don't speak about all black people but black people focus on sport and music.
If we build pyramis we need to prove it
stereotype of a black man in the continent of america or arab countries
we see black people in all countries best at sports and music
in south america countries like peru colombia the national soccer team is all black and the famous singers and musicians are blacks
african immigrants in europe
in france all the soccer an rugby team is black
the same thing in england and all west countries
italy and spain the most racist countries in europe start to use blacks in sport.
if you are great in sport that's not make us special
sport is just a game we entretain the white man
if white men really love black people
why he didn't give black people real jobs real education real opprtunities
i have enough of seing those stupid black rappers and singers and black basketball players football players.........
WE need to produce engineers doctors politicians
when i see the draft when white owners of teams choose black players i remember slavery.
IT's just my opinion

I actually agree with most of your post concerning education. First Lady Michelle gave a grad speech at a high school, I forgot which one, stating that Blacks have to focus more on education.

The stakes are too high in our community to only focus on sports and music.

Rap culture is poison and bragging about sports is pointless.

Couldn't have said it any better! Nothing's wrong with being athletes but at the same time have a backup plan. I would love to see more black people as scientists, engineers, educators, etc. like my bff's new husband, a black engineer and making six figures a year. His father, a black man, manages this oil company offshore. His mother, a black woman, graduated college with her degree in education.

Very good thread, and I agree. Although I don't focus to much on music nor sports-I agree that the majority of African Americans do. I would love to see my race progress in the educational department. There are some, but I would love to see more. =)

There was a book written by a BM years ago called 40 Million Dollar Slave, that speaks on the future of BM in sports and what he saw was slowly taking place. Has anyone read it?

When you are NOT educated, you are programmed. You behave based on how you were programmed too.

There are Educated Black people in our race who are programmed as well. This issue is not only among the lower class, non educated Blacks. There is a problem across the board.

If that 6 figure brother was 5'2 that black women would not be with him...

Well than are they really educated?? If you are easy to manipulate, you are not really educated.

Yes they are really formally educated. Yes they may be successful in their respective fields.

Are they educated in Black history and carry pride about that wherever they go?

Are they really manipulated? Or do they simply allow it?

Free will, common sense...wasted on those who allow others to control them.

We throw stones at poor uneducated Blacks. Why do we do this, when they are simply following what better Blacks do as well?

Pride does NOT come from individual success but the success of a family or community. Blacks will have real pride when their families and communities are stable but this requires knowledge.

Self pride begins with self. One person grounded in pride, equipped with knowledge, meets their equal. They build together. Barack and Michelle. Colin ( Powell) and Ann. You pass it to the next generation and it grows.

Sports and music.....my ticket out the ghetto. Not education, faith and values.

Out of their comfort zone and become puppets, whose strings are pulled, by everyone but themselves. Educated and non, both being played.

I agree with this. I thought you were talkin' about having racial pride.
