    i wonder if young people today have any interest in science and technology at all. sure, they like to consume the video games and the cell phones,
    but how many have any curiosity about how these "toys" work?

    i am knowledgeable because i love knowledge. now that i am retired i spend my days in study. i study because it is fun. i don't study to get a job, I'm already paid.
    i don't study to get a grade. i study because knowledge is king. i can never get enough of it. it's a better high than any drugs.

    i wonder if any of the young see it that way. all i hear from the young is gangsta stuff and how can they get layed.

    Thats how I see it. I can't get enough knowledge on various subjects. I just hate what they teach us in school, because it seems so worthless when you began to see the lies in the history book and the european indoctrination of African Diaspora.

    you need to learn everything in school, but see it for what it is. true knowledge is gained above and beyond the school.
    you get that on your own.

    bro.James i've been telling them for years to learn as much about how technology works
    how to go inside the vast of it and know it's whole standard
    our children becoming more lost , yet they want these toys without knowning how they work!

    thank you,thank you,thank you james the wise...i preach this 24-7to my own kids to other youngsters i talk to,yes yes yes knowledge,a thirst for learning something other than who's got the latest rap album out i've been blessed to be doing ok for myself and family but my struggles would've been alot easier had i listened and applied myself back in the day and it's alot harder today for you young sisters and brothers not just because you're black but because technology is off the chain today and moving at lightning speed,back in the day our parents pushed us to get that[high school diploma]but today that diploma isn't worth too much so please listen to what james is saying to you he knows what he's talking about...RAP ON JAMES-RAP ON!
