Didn't I tell you that I used to work for an Advertising Agency? At most, they will trick people to prefer THEIR brand over another, but why tell people what they like when you can just find out what they like and sell that to them?<quoted text>
You're naive about the role of corporations in pushing what THEY want people to buy. It's not all about demand. That is the lie they tell.
It's poverty due to past disadvantages. I never spoke about the reasons, I only spoke about what is true. You are now trying to change the discussion into the reasons for this.<quoted text>
Are you familiar with the play “USA” by John Dos Passos? That explains this dynamic very well.
Why are people in such desperation that they'd spend their food stamps on alcohol? Again, look for root causes, structural explanations. Blaming a person for their motivations without examining their experiences and options misses the entire point.
And that was NOT my argument. All I said is that it is nonsense to claim that drug dealing never originated in the Black community. So if you are now trying to tell me all of the reasons why this happened, then you have already agreed with my initial point.<quoted text>
That is my argument here,
And who wants to be forced to live next to dysfunctional people?<quoted text>
rather than addressing every aspect of dysunctional behavior, I say we look at the social structure in which that behavior manifests.
White people fled because, first, they were racist, and secondly because the black population WAS to a large extent poor and dysfunctional,
Sure it does.<quoted text>
and again, WHY is that? 100 years of Jim Crow have anything to do with it, do you think?
Haven't I continually said that it all comes down to education? What part didn't you understand?<quoted text>
Look at poor white rural areas. Not pretty. And the causes are largely the same as for the black inner city.
Run DMC was the first popular rap band that led the way for others, so you are wrong about that as well.<quoted text>
Music industry will not play positive hiphop.
So I guess that's all a conspiracy of white devils also where they tricked people into liking that. See how your argument falls apart?<quoted text>
They encourage the dysfunction, and again, there is a white counterpart. HEAVY METAL!!! Goddam suicide rock, a lot of it.
The authors who create it and the people who buy it.<quoted text>
You want to blame blacks for their crap... so whom do you blame for Death metal?
And who is writing this puzzle for you?<quoted text>
Self-serving? No, the guy whose story I got regarding the Panthers said nothing that didn't fit with all the other pieces of the puzzle.
The Black Panthers has a very revolutionary, anti white stance. Did they have great jobs or something? So where did they get the money from to keep their organization going? Same place that Hell's Angels got there's. Did the FBI force Hell's Angels to sell drugs as well? Your entire argument is complete nonsense. And you teach?? Is this what you are teaching kids? I would never want to pay a dime for you to teach my kids or anybody else's kids. It's alarming to think that people such as yourself are teaching others.<quoted text>
I have multiple sources for that.
Go on Youtube and search for Bobby Seale, then listen to him speak. He is STILL right on politically and there is nothing in his positions which would lead to what happened... and then are you going to claim the BPP are responsible for the NOI members attacking them in the streets? For the Police and govt killing them? Do you know who Fred Hampton was? Check him out.
