    Can we just be real today?

    Many of you are in college and you're busy at work on your future careers. However, some of you are still trying to figure out what your path should be.

    However, there are those rare people who just seem to be extremely driven, focused and determined to achieve success. When they do, one of the things that they discover is how often even family and friends treat them.

    Let's just face it: folks really do have a crabs-in-a-barrel mentality and can't stand to see other people succeed.

    Are you going through that? Or do you know someone who is?

    Only YOU can make your life work. It's no one else's responsibility if you fail. You get exactly what you settle for in life.

    Sometimes it's the people that some hang around that stifle their growth. Other times, it's the lack of confidence, discipline and hard work that is necessary.

    I'm one of the few people in the world who actually love to brag about other people succeeding--especially if I know them. I'm a natural motivator and it just gets me hyped to see a person achieving in life.

    But that's rare...however, I'd like to encourage those here who are trying to achieve something in life--hold on to your dreams, believe in yourself and don't allow the petty HATE of slackers get you down.

    Just remember, Jesus was hated too--and he was perfect. __________________

    yes, there are those who see a black man/woman succeeding...and the first thing out their mouth is, "he's an uncle tom," "she's a sell out." anything but "****, they're good at what they do." however, i've found more of us to be very supportive of our "RISES," than not.

    maybe it's a generational thing. being a half-century plus, i know the value of supporting those around you.

    The culture we're living in right now is definitely a thug culture and the hate that we all have to deal with just on a daily basis can make one put on the Ninja suit and get busy...:SuN003:

    i view the system of white supremacy as my enemy and i never lose sight of that.
    black people present no more than a bump in the road. it is white people who keep us all in the barrel.
    white people built the barrel. white people own the barrel. white people maintain the barrel.

    let us not get distracted.

    In my honest opinion, Black people give white people too much credit. White people aren't doing anything to Black people today: they just watch as the effects of psychological warfare act out in Black people--placed in the minds of African slaves hundreds of years ago.

    thas foolish to believe that white people are not doing anything to black people TODAY...
    look at the % of white people who get business loans and the % of black people that get loans with the same credit scores and business plans...

    look at the conviction rates for white people compared to black people for the same crimes....

    look at the median income for white people compared to black people with the same experience and education level....

    i can go on and on and on...

    so to me your statements concerning white people not doing anything to black people are either extremely naive or lacking proper deductive reasoning...

    i'm just sayin...

    one love

    yeap some of those white people who are pretending to have your best interest at heart, are deep down inside turning blacks against one another and controlling them at the same time... been there, seen that.
