    We today have a large percentage of our brothers and sisters who are unproductive and aspiring to be something that is elusive. We find them chasing after an elusive life which emulates false images of fame and stardom. We witness them embracing a lifestyle that is rife with violence, no sense of direction, no education, no self-identity, no self-esteem, or self-confidence. These people are the sheep who have strayed away from the flock and have fallen victim to false prophets and salivating predators that use them for their own self gain. Most individuals lack any concept of what real success is and how it can be attained. Consequently what they decide to chase after is fleeting and non-substantive( importance or value). Is it because we still are riffed with a self-imposed slavery mentality or a self defeatist attitude?

    Are we to afraid of pursuing an education or some legitimate skill set that would allow us to assimilate into the world of responsibility and productivity? By our lack of desire to ascend to greater heights we are relegated to a position where others dictate what we can and can not do. Where we can and can not live. What schools our children can and can not attend. We have relinquished any form of control to the whim of the white man. I must reiterate that we have allowed ourselves to unknowingly be subdued and brainwashed and have lapsed into a more advanced and modern-day form of slavery. We believe ourselves to be in control but we are actually not. We are completely insentient and do not realize it.
    We tell ourselves that to have a command of the English language is to speak like a white person. To be be an educated person and want to have access to the finer things in life is to emulate white people. We continuously say that we don’t want to be like white people. Yet every day I see black men and women emulating the very people that they proclaim not to want to be anything like. I see sisters with breast implants, an assortment of different colored wigs and weaves that they wag back and forth like some attention seeking white girl. They're inserting blue, green and hazel colored contacts or having their pupils injected with color altering chemicals and bleaching their skin. What the heck is that all about if not someone who is in denial, full of self-hatred and doesn't know who they really are?
    This also applies to brothers with the tattoos depicting the thug life and riding around in cars that have been blinged out with accessories that usually cost more than the car is worth. When some of them open their mouths to speak I need sub titles to understand what the heck they're saying. The style of dress is to wear pants down and low exposing buttocks for all to see and the accessories of the day are gold covered teeth ( referred to as a grill ). This is absolutely pitiful and yet it is embraced, accepted and glamorized.
    You have been dining on and digesting a constant diet of B.S. and either you are too stupid to realize it or you have no other aspirations in life so this is what is embraced. This is the flavor of success your palate has acquired a taste for . You want to sample being a rapper or maybe a thug and live a gangster lifestyle. Definitely the wrong selection on the menu!!! Here are just a couple of examples used in the industry to "BAMBOOZLE" the unsuspecting prey.


    Example; Rappers on video proclaiming to be thugs and gangsters drinking booze and waving around assault weapons and handguns. ie: white gangsters and thugs from the 1920’s to 1960’s who robbed and killed each other indiscriminately for territory and control over illegitimate enterprises. They also did not have any regard for a human life..
    Example: P Diddy and fellow rappers on video sporting a white robe, slippers and cigar in hand occupying a high end hotel room.
    Example: P Diddy in commercial promoting Cirock accompanied by some actors better known for their mob roles along with beautiful long-legged women and other well dressed people. Boarding a private jet and flying out to Vegas and seen traversing through an extravagant palatial hotel or casino, dancing with beautiful women and toasting the high life!!!!! Yeah, we should all aspire for that lifestyle.
    I understand the marketing concept and the promotion of your product but there is also a message that is being sent that is not conducive or in step with the plight of most ordinary African-American people. It is a self promoting commercial to get you to buy into the false imagery of what your life could be like if you would only buy and drink Cirock. They are selling you on the glamorous life of Las Vegas, private jets, pretty women, partying and expensive hotel accommodations. Oh and let's not forget the alcohol to which African-Americans spend over 400 million dollars annually to consume. This is a lifestyle that most people will never acquire in their lifetime and if they do they'll just end up pissing it away.

    This does not begin nor end with P Diddy but is a poison that has been perpetuated by him and others in that arena.
    Rapping used to be something that was fun and good to listen to because it was fresh and new. But then some cats figured they would use it as a vehicle to send their message of oppression that was accompanied by the blatant disrespect of our women, use of drugs, alcohol, and violence. Music execs are the pimps, rappers are the prostitutes selling the goods and you are the tricks that purchase it. So I guess at the end of the day your just being played. Just another hustle and another form of Black Exploitation!!!

    The record labels recognized a prime opportunity to make an enormous amount of cash by grabbing these rappers to write and deliver these lyrics of hate, disrespect and violence and selling it to you.
    They are trick ‘in you people by selling you on a lifestyle that most of them only write lyrics about and do not live. You buy into it because you are easily BAMBOOZLED. You lack the ability to discern between what is genuine and what isn’t. What is reasonably achievable and what isn't. I'm not for one minute suggesting that you don't aim high but it is what you're aiming for that matters. I do not have an issue with someone expressing what they are experiencing however there must be some accountability. We have to take responsibility for what we are saying and how it is received by others. The platform was a great one that could have been utilized to raise the awareness level and empower the masses but it got turned into a pimp machine...

    As long as we continue to pursue these types of misguided dreams and lifestyles, great and meaningful achievements will never happen. To be continued.......

    /QUOTE]

    Al DeVeaux Jr aren’t we all existing in an era where hype is rewarded 100 times more lucratively than substance as very spectacularly underlined by the amount of money that musicians, actors and sports stars can make, in stark contrast to brain surgeons and other vitally important medical professionals, the technologists producing all the gadgest we cannot imagine living without, and even more poignantly the thousands of armed forces who don’t get killed but end up crippled, maimed and mutilated serving their country as totally expendable cannon fodder?

    Despite the fact that P Diddy, Kanye and Kim and the various other entertainers and sportstars aren’t in any way significant features of my life because I don’t take ANY notice of them and what they are doing publicly or privately, what sort of world would we be living in if their excesses were actually the worst thing happening on this planet TODAY/in the 21st century?

    However even within that socio-economic/cultural paradigm how much damage is P Diddy, Kanye and his wife doing to anyone [following their exploits and even buying Diddy’s music/merchandise isn’t compulsory is it] whereas what options do we have with regard to the manner in which the Banksters loot billions but are ALWAYS bailed out by the taxpayer as opposed to jailed when it comes on top, are rewarded constantly with huge bonuses for FAILURE in stark contrast to the so consistent mass media focus on the scroungers on welfare/the dole [who are always jailed when caught/have to repay the money they’ve stolen] from the lower echelons?

    Though I NEVER EVER watch any of the tv programs about any of the celebrity entertainers/sports stars etc [because I have a LIFE/have more important things to do than immerse myself that much in someone else’s life, as I truly don’t care], how do P Diddy, Kanye and Kim and the rest of that posse get so much of your attention/focus?

    Are these entertainers to blame for the ongoing economic meltdown in the USA and the rest of the West, or the so murderous chaos millions of people are being forced to exist in worldwide, as opposed to these DISASTERS being created by the political leaders/POWER ELITE mouthpieces [how on Earth do they manage to sleep comfortably in their beds at night with so much blood on their hands]; as most spectacularly demonstrated by the ongoing WAR ON TERROR FIASCO which has totally needlessly put at least 1 million people to death needlessly since 2001, while crippling, mutilating and maiming at least 1 million more [including many thousands of very brave/patriotic members of the West’s own armed forces]?

    I and most people would be deliriously happy if P Diddy, Jay Z, Kanye and Kim’s excesses were the worst thing happening on this planet TODAY, where your rationale and mine differ is that in mine, they’d struggle [along with all the other entertainers, actors, celebrities activities good or bad] to even make it into my top 100; thus agreeing to differ is probably the only way forward, eh?

    You are correct, it's not the worse, still doesn't lessen the negative impact it has or make it acceptable to everyone...We can always agree to disagree brother. Be well!!!

    And you Brother, those musicians and entertainers employ a lot of our people, thus isn’t our big challenge getting them to focus on creating more cerebrally stimulating uplifting music as opposed to the so consistently inane N-word laden GARBAGE that they are being encouraged by the status quo to emasculate themselves and the African collective with; in stark contrast to the manner in which Public Enemy, Isis and Rebel Soul, KRS1 and all the more spiritually and intellectually agile rappers and entertainers have been strategically sidelined by the status quo?

    Aren’t THEY just like the rest of the Boulé, trapped in the NEGROBOT LACKEY zone as opposed to important movers and shakers creating all the mayhem worldwide, looking up to those Illuminati CLOWNS & the 33 Degree Freemasons, because they truly don’t KNOW that as Africans we come in at 360 Degree/can do things that the PALEFACES can only dream of [the Creator ordained it so]?
