    This was in the New York Tomes today but is it the real story,
    can anyone from Phillie tell us what the real deal is?

    Mobs Are Born as Word Grows by Text Message

    By IAN URBINA

    PHILADELPHIA — It started innocently enough seven years ago as an act of performance art where people linked through social-networking Web sites and text messaging suddenly gathered on the streets for impromptu pillow fights in New York, group disco routines in London, and even a huge snowball fight in Washington.

    But these so-called flash mobs have taken a more aggressive and raucous turn here as hundreds of teenagers have been converging downtown for a ritual that is part bullying, part running of the bulls: sprinting down the block, the teenagers sometimes pause to brawl with one another, assault pedestrians or vandalize property.

    INTRO
    Things bad now but trust me them could get worse
    Unless of course we come together and do something first
    And all mothers just gwaan pray cause it a go tek a lot more than a politician to save the day
    VERSE 1
    When the youths dem need a buss give them opportunity first
    Cause if them sit down and a lust it nah go safe fi none of us
    And all the guns weh used to rust a go rise up from the dust
    Police and soldiers haffi duck when them hear the guns a buss
    War a gwaan in Iraq, meh nu have nuh time fi penny that
    Me a watch the youths dem pon the block a rise the SK and the Glock
    It nuh safe gi go a shop, even pickney dem a drop
    Now tell me what we gonna do about that?
    HOOK
    A long time me did a warn dem
    Say the youths dem need fi eat some
    food a that can calm dem
    Dem never listen when dem hear a shot a drizzle, well here comes the storm then
    When the thunder start roll and get out of control we can't disarm them

    VERSE 2
    When opportunity mean fi wait outside another brother gate
    And when nuh food nuh inna yuh plate, you know your life yuh a go hate
    Your value nah appreciate no matter how you hold the fate
    You end up crooked and a look it, it nuh pay fi live so straight
    Seven years after college
    all now job no come
    So you overqualified
    still haffi live inna the slum
    Father dead you haffi take care of your mother and your son
    And your grip it all a done, you load the clip inna your gun
    It hard fi smile with everybody weh yuh meet everyday
    All when yuh do good
    you still a get beat everyday
    No have noten fi lose, yuh still deh pon the street everyday
    If you go prison at least, yuh get fi eat everyday
    HOOK
    VERSE 3
    When we actions nuh mirror what a come from we lips
    Simply means we must be a nation of hypocrites
    Politicians come from among us, as far I can see
    If somen wrong with them then some must be wrong with we
    A we meek them, a we elect them, and all the crap them a dish a we a take them
    So it's a little insane, when we start complaining, when the bullets start raining
    When a we the creator fi the harm them
    HOOK
    SPEAK
    You know what? Me can't promise you
    say the youths dem a go drop the baretta
    Hell, me me can't even promise, you say me a go act better
    But one thing's for sure, we can mek a effort
    And that at least we can do before we lef earth
    HOOK
    Every boy every girl every man man together we can
    Every saint every sinner every politician together we can
    Every teacher every lawyer every doctor and every don
    Together we can
    warn dem.....


    M.E.

    I feel you sis but what's going on in Phillie?

    Here in do or Die Bed Stuy, the youth don't have time for that kind of behavior, as well as not hearing this going on in 49 other states, and we know how racist the press is cause if it was, they would have it all over the news

    ummmm...philadelphia is the city of "firsts":10500:

    I sense these type of activities ARE happening else where just in a different form. For example, the violent beatings and murder rates in Chi-town.

    In philly, we have a Nut-ter at the helm and since being in office, he has cut all activities and resources for youth.

    So what are the youth busy with out there in Bed Stuy:?:

    I think these events take place after school hours. It could be they ARE going to school and are tried of the LIES they are learning...OR...THEY ARE LEARNING...



    they may have taken a few notes from those white power manuals called history books and are behaving according.

    The youth have difficulty HEARING what "reasonable adults" are attempting to teach them. They have been programmed to disregard what Revolutionary minds have to say to them. They have been programmed to disregard ADULT direction in most forms. They have become aware of the LIES told them.
    They are BORED..read...DEPRESSED.....SUPPRESSION OF ANGER and young people's Depression shows up in externalized aggressive behaviors.
