    i just heard my local clear channel radio go on a drive to raise money for tsunami victims.
    now the hip hoppers are out getting money for the asians.

    they never raised money for the sudan.
    why are Negroes running around raising money for asians, who don't even like black people and ignoring African relief efforts?

    i'm confused.

    I'm not confused brotha, These fellahs are jumping on the band wagon because they have little guidance in the first place. The other thing is that, let's be real, how many rappers even know about the Genocide in the Sudan? Very few, very very few!

    It is a Sad thing to see Brother James!

    We seem to have more empathy and tolerence for an outside race then we have for our own.

    We are extremly misguided! :crying: :insane:

    I agree. I thought about that too once this tsunami thing happened. It's cool to help them out because they do need it, but no one even blinked when people were getting slaughtered in Sudan. No black entertainers wanted to even acknowledge the subject. The radio stations only covered and told us about the disaster, but no one took up any fundraisers or anything to help out. Now, I know it's more dangerous in Sudan than it is in the places where the tsunami took place, but that's more reason to help. People are actually "getting" killed...not dying from a natural disaster. It's worse to sit by and watch someone get murdered, than it is to see someone swept up by a tornado or a huge wave. I didn't hear one person say anything about it. Wait, I did hear Danny Glover...but no one else. It's sad.


    Both are tragedies in my opinion. If one gets this much help and recognition...then the other should also.

    I'll tell you what's even more apalling Kente, is that the Muslim world has been totally silent on the situation in the Sudan. There is a long thread dedicated to the subject, read it for yourself

    I saw someone on TV


    Last night raise a similar question to this. He basically said we have a problem in the black community. I can't quote him, but it was legitimate. I think he was from Baltimore.
