Over time they become hardened to the plight of others who werent blessed with whatever they have or dont have as much drive as they do.I am not saying give your money to bums but if the aa community was a community then they could stay there and the wealth would get shared.But there are ignorant people who make things bad and the people with money and sense leave for their safety and well-being. I am not hating i'm just wondering where did we go SO wrong?The only plan that sounds good is getting my own wealth and leaving soon.

Like Jesus Christ said, "Don't cast your pearls before swine" because they will trample over them and turn to attack YOU!

The late, great Peter Tosh of Bob Marley and the Wailers, tried to help a homeless black convicted murderer friend of his and invited him into his home to live with him temporarily, and to show his "appreciation" that black man MURDERED HIM!

http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/news/The-night...

The night Peter Tosh was killed
Crimes that rocked the nation

Excerpt: "HOW did the internationally known Jamaican icon and reggae singer, Peter Tosh — second only in fame to the legendary Bob Marley — really die?

And, after the impact of his brutal murder hit the local and foreign Press, what other sensation could one have imagined the blood-thirsty killers had in mind, when they also massacred, in one sitting, well-known broadcaster and disc jockey, Jeff Dixon, o/c Free I; and another man, known as Wilton Brown?

And, to add spice it seemed, to the whole movie-like script, the common-law wife of Tosh, Marlene Brown; the wife of Free I; and visitors Michael Robinson and Santa Davis, survived to re-visit this bloodcurdling tale. But not before Marlene Brown went through agony, as at first blush, it was thought a bullet had lodged at the back of her head.

She went, as Jamaicans would say,“to death's door”.
Mr Justice Patterson (later appeal judge) and a jury heard all about this tragic story in the No 1 Home Circuit Court in 1988.
It was a story that would be followed well beyond the shores of this beautiful Caribbean island. Winston McIntosh, known to his legion of fans as Peter Tosh, the 'Stepping Razor', was part of the trio the Wailers — the other being Neville Bunny Wailer Livingston and Robert Nesta Marley, known to the world as Bob Marley.

He was known for his biting lyrics and radical disposition that endeared him to those who opposed “the establishment”. To symbolise this, he carried a guitar in the shape of an M-16 rifle. And it was, ironically, by the gun that he would meet his end.
Dennis Lobban, familiarly called “Leppo”, appeared before the court charged with the multiple murder of: Wilton Brown; Peter Tosh and Jeff Dixon, o/c Free I, a well-known Rastafarian broadcaster and disc jockey on the now defunct Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation (JBC) radio.
Mr Kent Pantry, retired Director of Public Prosecutions, the then Counsel for the prosecution, marshalled the evidence.

The murders were alleged to have taken place at the Barbican Road residence of Tosh, while he and Marlene Brown, whom he named his “Empress” had been entertaining a group of friends.
Ever heard the Jamaican proverb “Sorry fi mawgah dawg, mawgah dawg tun 'roun bite yuh?” Well, that proverb, I would say, sums up adequately what allegedly happened in this case.

For the learned trial judge and jury were treated to a tale from witnesses for the prosecution, the likes of which makes screen writers in Hollywood sign on the dotted line.

In effect, the witnesses related how Tosh had fed, nurtured and even provided a new bed for Lobban, who had recently been released from prison. Lobban had been allowed to visit the Barbican Road residence from time to time and had even become familiar with the trained dogs therein.

On the night of September 11, 1987, he and two other gunmen entered the home, robbed all the persons there, then shot and killed Tosh, Free I and Wilton Brown. Marlene Brown, who was also shot, played dead and survived."

There are many reasons that black people leave. Not to give most of them excuses but I think that they leave because they 1.Don't trust other black people 2.Had more motivation to succeed and didn't know anyone to build with 3.Didn't feel like they belong. Usually these are the types that don't celebrate black America culture, and they are your black rockers, skaters, anything you can consider to be out of the norm. You also have 4. Blacks that were just lucky; rappers, foot ball players, basketball, actors, musicians, etc.

The three main issues are

1. the Crabs in the barrel" mentality. Taught to only look after yourself and to hate your fellow brother subconsciously, which is
2. self hate, thanks to our
3. Ass backwards culture.

Sure I know a few middle class blacks that work together, but I don't believe there's enough. Red tails made 2nd in the box office, but if it was done by spike lee (a black man) so not many blacks would have gone to see it if that were the case, which leads to 2. Self hate.

If you were to get your own then I would not blame you for leaving, because there are not many black men that are willing to build with each other. There are a FEW that are actually working together. Not being able to communicate is probably an issue, let's say I'm from NY and you are from CA and we both are trying to build a business that have similar goals. We would most likely not know each other exists, we would just be surrounded by unproductive members if the AA community.

They glorify killing each other as though it makes you a god. Police dont arrest criminals who terroriye their own areas.

Everyone who had it rough wants you to have it rougher. The outcasts are bitter such as Kid Cudi but I try nt to become that way.

Yes the outcasts are just as bad because they are more hateful than racists (in a way). Bad black ppl treat good BM like garbage making them want to "betray" their race; throwing opposite gender under the bus, giving money to non black communities and breeding out. Although I'm not with the opposite gender of my race, I don't want biracial children. I also think you can date whoever but I think successful BM should give non American women a chance before Molly and Bella.
