If they did just that and hired people from the community,.....
i've always been an advocate of black entertainment millionaires giving back. but to whom do they give back too...? there's no infrastructure in the bc to receive such large donations.
I'm all for these brothers and others who have become successful and want to make a difference in whatever capacity they can. However, I don't feel that they are obligated to give back anything to the communities... Most of these folks in these communities need to get up off their behinds and do something... Commit 10% of their money and time to improving their environment and get rid of the the destructive elements that continue to bring them down....Start cleaning up their own backyard then maybe other folks will notice the effort and chip in and want to contribute......Nah, that's probably asking way to much....
So you're saying in no black community there is a infastructure? I can't believe that. I'm sure there is a way to do exactly as Kenny suggest. If there is not, certainly it could be put in place with a little bit of effort on either someone in the community already or by the athlete. An organization could be created. It's done everyday for one CAUSE or another.
I didn't say that, you're saying that!!! That's the way you want to interpret it which always causes unnecessary conflicts and misunderstanding which to leads to issues with one another that need not occur. Folks re-wording what other folks say..
Message received and understood!!
I see that you're one of those who puts words in folks mouth also so since you mentioned it and I didn't..Not our own worst enemy but definitely competing for that number one slot....Yeah, folks need to clean up a lot of their own s--t first...That white supremacy and oppression crap is for weak minded people with no fight in them...
