    i often wonder why those who already have money continue to be such slaves.
    at a certain point it speaks to character.

    Peace,

    The ability to accumulate large amounts of money can make one blind and ignorant to the problems of others. Even as far as how one represents self. Consider the commercial where this dude is buying expensive alcohol to pour on his waterproof phone. He makes it clear he's willing to allow black males to look like buffoons for a commercial deal. I won't even get into his personal life. He just makes it obvious he's one of these millennial neo-blacks. They recognize getting paid and that's about it.

    Peace

    In all due candor and honestly:

    As regards today's hip hop-gangster rap-popular culture icons, your oh so personal takes should be updated too!

    Peace,

    A very white perspective. That's exactly how they see most people of color. Not everyone is built for the pursuit of Freedom, Justice and Equality. If the original diaspora was built for that we would have taken back our world a long time ago. It's people like dude Wayne who keep the white people at the top happy. Sell-outs are the worst....... aiding the slavemakers of the poor for a few trinkets.

    Peace

    Yeah I saw the show with this fool on it. Skip Bayless had the nerve to call him a deep thinker, I wanted to say "Skip what in the hell is you smoking". Lil Wayne would be the last person on that panel that I would ask something that required coherent and complete sentences.

    Peace!

    When the majority of the problems you lose sleep over is not having enough money, suddenly go away when you have more money, what becomes more important to you? What does Lil Wayne spend his time thinking about these days now that he has more money and is able to pay his bills and have a lot of money left over?

    Obviously, social justice issues must not have ever been a deep issue for him. Maybe what happens to some Black people who achieve fame is, there perspective on racism changes when they hire a lot of white people on their payrolls, see them buying their product and always have a slew of them ready to jump into bed with them. To them, racism may no longer exist UNTIL they are no longer relevant in the industry and become just another Black person again. Just a thought . . .
