"Brock said he would call on "national leaders," such as the Rev. Al Sharpton, to come to Erie if no action is taken by the foundation."

The minor league race hustler is gonna call for some help from the big league race hustler. Wonder if Jesse Jackass is gonna get the call too.

Why would anyone care what the reverend Brock or the hortons have to say? They need to lead by example and not be so angry and get a haircut. If these are the role models these young people have I can understand why no one will hire them if they project the same image in a job interview that these role models project to the public through threats and intimation in the media.

Honest Al Sharpton?........BWAHAHAHAHAHA ! The former lawyer who suborned perjury from Tawana Brawley & constructed an elaborate false Gang rape case , which resulted in him loosing his license to practice law & lose a defamation of character & slander law suit
Here i s a certified Black Race Baiting Poverty Pimp who has suckered the Black community time & again to line his pockets at their expense.
He has no shame & will lie & cheat anybody to advance his crooked agenda.. His use of Racism Charges to advance his agenda are legendary. He feeds on Racial strife & hurts the very people he pretends to help.
Dwayne Brock is thinking of bringing this crooked Racist Scumbag to Erie to help him?.....Sure explains a lot as to why so many people distrust Dwayne Brock ....... Bishop or even a christian, Bullshit!
I suppose I can understand the Black community at street being taken in by Honest Al but a black community leader who claims to be a Bishop & Christian? Gotta be another Black hustler as well.

Your scenario is bogus. Years of observation and experience teaches us all that a single black person never confronts a white person unless it is to commit a crime. A single black person doesn't confront a single white person unless there are other blacks to back him up. They rarely work solo when it comes to causing trouble. So yes, anybody would shyt themselves when confronted by a black, and with good reason. Their behaviors warrant supreme caution and for everybody to be very suspicious of their intentions. Tune in the local news every night, read the daily newspaper, you'll find plenty of film footage and articles to back this up.

Lets see Mr Brock wants a hand out to provide summer jobs for youth so they basicly dont kill themselves this summer. Now if he can get the heavy hitters to back him up shouldnt he direct that force to his black hero Obama? He promised to get rid of trade agreement (but is now pushing TPP agreement)also he has burdened the young and healthy with mandatory insurance, he is also passing on an economy that is collapsing into debt. Mr Brock if you dont point you walking shoes at DC you might as well go pee in the lake because the shyt has not yet hit the fan and ole whittie is about tapped out and going down the tubes with you

Even if you get these kids jobs they won't show up on time if at all. If they do show up they won't work.

Maybe they can do whatever every other kid does and apply for a job. It won't happen because it takes effort that they are not willing to put the forward into a job hunt.

Brock makes it sound like it is everyone else's responsibility to find something for these kids to do instead of breaking the law.

Put some effort into forcing black parents to take an interest in their children.

Parenting cannot be legislated. Stand up and take some responsibility.

This cannot be fixed. There is no hope.

A salesman passes through town and finds a golf course to play. He asks the manager for a caddy but is told they have robot caddies instead of human caddies. Skeptical, he takes a chance and plays his round of golf. Afterwards he tells the manager how impressed he was with his robot caddy. " It always knew the correct distance, gave me the right club, and was very quiet. I loved it ! "
A couple of months later the salesman returns and eagerly asks for another robot caddy.
" We don't have those anymore. " said the manager. When asked why he explained that many golfers were complaining that the sun would reflect off them and disrupt the golfers while putting. The disappointed salesman asked " Why didn't you just paint them black ? "
To which the manager replied " We tried that but then two of them robbed the clubhouse and the rest quit showing up for work ! "

When blacks and black leaders resort to their old playbook of blame and wanting money thrown at their problems it reinforces the steadfast belief of others that they are indeed incapable of holding their community responsible for most of their ills.
This tactic is what little children use because they lack the acumen to do anything but expect others to make their world better. If they possessed that intellectual trait they would not have allowed themselves to have fallen so far in the first place. It's time to challenge black people whether they do or do not have that quality within themselves to demand better from each other.
One can hope, but don't hold your breath.

Great role model.
Gimme, Gimme, Gimme.
Do what everyone else has to do, including all the adults that are looking for work, APPLY.
Maybe the city should sponsor bible meetings at Perry square twice a week. We would see then how many kids would show up.
Brock still hasn't publicly condemned [ not blame this or that] the black violence in Erie.
Until he does, his voice falls on deaf ears.

Why doesn't Brock MAKE some jobs?

Here's what I saw Rev. You begging for cash to create jobs. Why didn't you just call it what it was....you want a cash hand out to the "brothers". If you want to be equal with the white man, maybe you should try doing what a white man would do. They don't march around asking for hand outs. They find a job and if they can't find one, they create one that makes enough money to pay the bills.

Try this: Get a bunch of those poor non workers and organize them. YOU start a business! You'll pay min. wage. They will do work that YOU line up for them. You will charge more than you are paying out so you end up with a little profit to put back into YOUR business to make it grow. So lets get your team together and start mowing lawns like a real lawn care company. Try painting a house for someone at a much cheaper rate than Brandell and still make a great profit. A bunch of those people could have the jobs done in no time and the more jobs you do the more money you'll make. It's called business. You don't need money to do this....just motivation. Unfortunately I don't think your "people" really wanna work...they just want money given to them.

“Condescending remarks” as Brock stated during his interview, no doubt worth 3 mill in his mind.

Curious what the stats were from the JFK job fair, how many attended, interviewed, hired and actually still employed after a month?
