Listen guys, take some advice from a whitey (I'm so white if you stand too close to me you'll go blind) Lets agree blacks have a street culture, and all other races have a street culture, a street cred or outer image. Now wipe your mind clean for a few minutes and look at “whiteys ways”, his / her body language, dress and mannerisms. To succeed you need to copy him. I know this might be demeaning for some and it will not get you to be the President of Black Power, but whom cares about that. Do it.
All right I can see some guy at the back saying "that’s impossible, look at me, I'm a Rastafarian, been a Rastafarian all my life" IGNORE HIM, tell him the white mans ways are the best.

(2) ADVICE ON MAKING A NEW START. What you must do if you're a father is: Every day you must say to your wife and, each of you're children, "I love you", you must have a job and all the money you earn goes to supporting the Assets side of your home and family. SO OPEN A SAVINGS ACCOUNT. Now this is important - shut up and listen- Each day say to you're children:“Bob, one day you are going to be a lawyer so you must study”, to Alice you say "Alice, one day when you grow up you're going to be a school teacher " so you must study, and to Phil you say,“Phil I want you to go down to the library and borrow some books on how-to-build houses, because one day you're going to be the biggest and the best house builder ever seen in this state"

(3) Now do me a favour, just one teeny-weenie-favour: Feel sorry for other people including your g.g.gd parents and the Jews. In Russia Jews were excluded (wrong colour, wrong nose, wrong eyes) and banished to an unwanted by all wilderness swamp land called THE STETL (it’s in the Polish borders area) they had no food, no jobs, no nothing, the genocide plan was they'd die, but they survived, not very well mind you but they survived, and many of them started self-help education school groups, and, their Jewish Public schools were a lot better than the Russian schools, and guess what? Jewish education (not brains - we've all got a set of brains) Jewish education won through, so what I'm asking is for an equal emphasis in your home on CHILDRENS EDUCATION, on good manners and once-in-a-while a for them to reflect and to be proud. If your going to walk around looking like a slave- then you'll be treat like a slave, and pick you jobs carefully, the bigger the dollar bill - the better the job. And if the guy at the back of the room say’s I haven’t got a job, then tell him to sell apples in the street from a pushcart and become a retailer or market trader.

My love, and I mean this 100% to all black people in the world starting from the KING down, Joe LOUIS, to that little black girl who one day going to be a famous doctor. Written by A Limey from England called Bob, who haven’t ever met a man he didn’t like.

Just look at the cities that have Black? Leaders. Does Detroit ring a bell and that sheet hole is only one. Ghettos! Look at America with our half Black Leaders, Look at the damage he's done just think what he would do if he was all black. These so called people are not leaders they were made to be workers and thats all they are good for.

There are a number of good places to observe Mexican heritage. Start at the welfare office, then go over to the courthouse, then swing by the prison, then go by the maternity ward, then the hospital emergency ward and after it gets dark you can cruise down through the barrio where they make it easy to score some dope. But they're a proud people.

Oh, that's the real reason Arias is incarcerated. It's her heritage.
She went to the wrong state to viciously murder someone.
