    we have just watched someone say to a man they don't know 'you have to acknowledge you view a black man as more of threat than a white man because you're white'. This is prejudice in action: making a presumption because of superficial characteristics based on little more than someone's own paranoia, denial of individuality, selectively chosen facts poorly understood and decontextualised and saying that presumption with confident ignorance. Nice music, set, filming, and concept, but the actual content? Pretentious, and a load of shit. Not a monologue but a dialogue? Sounds like preaching to me, and that Acho has presumed his perspective is the right one, and not open to the possibility he's being unrealistic and entitled. Also his example for black people still suffering today after directly referencing slavery? Not being chosen for the football team? Is this a fucking joke? Where is this guy's perspective? How perfect does he expect life to be?

    why won't the achos of the world/kaepernick etc develop a serious plan, a strategy, something. What do they/yall want?? u don't find it odd that none of them have any kind of real solution? What I'm hearing is that the same people that a large % of black people believe are evil, are holding them down, responsible for all their failures are now the ones that black people want to figure out and handle how to fix racism their lives etc.

    First off it's called racism. Telling me about horrible things that happened in the past to justify you being racist today doesn't cut it. This is so sad and shocking that acho hasn't been taught to understand this. There are tens of millions of Hispanics that have come here over last 40 years or so. Millions of them are "white" & their children speak with no accent & if you saw them you'd believe they were a "typical" white American. How exactly or what exactly did they do for you to justify being racist towards them.? it's not jist Hispanics but Russians, eastern Europeans etc. Irish arrived right towards end of slavery, yeah blame them for Jim crow etc even if had nothing to do with but how justify blaming Hispanics that are white and will increasingly blend in to American and "white" culture. Approx 90% of black children were born into a 2 parent household in the late 1800s. These numbers slowly fell to approx 74% in 1960s, today its approx 23%.

    Wow. I stumbled upon this video by pure luck. I have always been a Lil Wayne fan from day one. I'm an "80s baby". I'm also struggling with Mental Heath issues. I am 38 years old. I swallowed a handful of prescribed anxiety pills and ended up in the psych ward at the hospital for 7 days. I did a whole lot of journaling, reflecting, called my 18 year old son and was open & honest with him just in case he is or ever will battle with "suicide thoughts ". It is so real, it should be shared, treated and properly diagnosed. Minorities are afraid of doctors and medical advice . That is what's killing our community. We would rather "self-medicate " and "work the systems". I never thought I would actually seek rehab treatment, but enough is enough at some point. We've gotta give our bodies a break and nurture ourselves because we lack proper familial & moral support from loved ones and friends or partners.

    this shit is disgusting on so many levels. everyone knows if a black child had any chance of being murdered it wouldn't be by a white man. we all know exactly who they have to fear. "There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then (I) look around and see someone white and feel relieved." Jesse Jackson The horrible negative unforseen consequences of this will have effects for decades if not generations to come. How many black children who lost their parents for whatever reason who are now living in abject poverty and misery in some home for kids or even on the streets in some 3rd world country or even in US instead of living with some great loving white or other race family like this one here. Guaranteed white adoptions have collapsed due to this trash. shocking that so many have gone this route. he was fairly nice to them and said he appreciated them for adopting them but we know how nasty that conversation is going all over, not near this kind. 99% of White people are not going to be honest when they're simply not allowed to be so they'll tell you what you want to hear & then slowly but surely move further away from poor black and brown communities. they see and feel the venom, hate, etc coming from much of the black community which was egged on by the white liberal who lives in 98% white gated communities & goes to 98% white schools far from poor black communities. This hate division & insanity we've been seeing against white people which for 100 years we called this kind of talk against another race traight up racism is going to cause white flight like in the 50s & 60s but times 1000. Police no longer respected, they're demonized, murders are at highest rate we've seen since early 1990s, & people feeling it. It won't just be whites that leave, it will be every race of people who no longer feel safe, comfortable, accepted etc. These are the people that pay the property taxes, payroll taxes, sales tax etc etc which pay for the local public schools, after school programs, help maintain property values due to demand, provide jobs, resources etc. anger and pain doesn't give you the right to take it out on someone who has litterly nothing to do with it other than sharing same skin color with the people you think are responsible for it. Thankfully the madness has slowed down but if would have kept up this would of been devastating. Definitely not for the white people with means and resources but people in poorer minority and white communities.

    You will one day stand before God and answer for everything you have done. How will you do on that day? Here's a quick test: How many lies have you told in your life? Have you ever stolen anything? Have you used God's name in vain? Have you ever looked at someone with lust? Have you had sex outside of marriage? Have you ever had, or been involved in, an abortion? Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? If you have done these things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, fornicating, blasphemer, adulterer at heart, and murderer, and the Bible warns that God will punish you in a terrible place called the lake of fire: Revelation 21:8, AV: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Yet God, who is "...rich in mercy,..." sent His Son the Lord Jesus Christ to suffer and die on the cross for all guilty sinners. We broke God's law and the Lord Jesus Christ paid our fine. That means God can legally dismiss our case and He can commute our death sentence. John 3:16, AV: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." Then the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead and defeated death. Please, repent of your sins and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, and God will give you eternal life as a free gift: Ephesians 2:8-9, AV: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."

    Not to pick through every single little detail, but he said he was watching biggie through the mirror, which means the door was open when he pulled the trigger. I'm guessing he shut the door before he shot and that's why they had to knock the door off the hinges? For the record, I dig the hell out of Wayne and he had a collosal impact on me during my childhood.

    So what if one is white and lives in a black or asian country, where white people have no power and are a minority? Does "reversed racism" not exist there? And if it's connected to power dynamics, then technically only white people can be racist? No other "race" can? If Asians discriminate black people because of their skin color, that's not racist then? Seriously, what a load of bullshit.

    I remember that i use to cut myself because I really wanted to leave this earth. I got a knife but was too scared to really hurt myself like Wayne said. Your really scared but you work your way up to do it. I started cutting myself and something told me to stop (God). I was bleeding pretty bad though and I can still see the scar. Anyone who is contemplating suicide don’t do it. Your worth it and God loves you very much. God has the best for you. The devil knows your someone special and knows you have an incredible life ahead of you. Your worth it. Your loved and appreciated

    This dudes so full of shit. telling you exactly what you want to hear. kind of asked for it though. want a real conversation you have to allow someone to talk, listen & try and understand from their point of view when they tell you what you don't want to hear. this is type get you'll continue to get unless seek an actual honest conversation. Damn, they are good. Does anyone actually believe white "elites" are losing or have lost power? Delusional? Look who's behind the curtain and you'll always find him. Ask a strong black woman or any minority with any influence or power what happens when you step out of line. Nicki Minaj could speak on it. This is all bullshit. They couldn't have written a better movie script. Bezos, Gates & the other few have gained over a trillion dollars in wealth since beginning of pandemic while near half of black businesses have been crushed. But I will say all of this is working out very well for the most privileged & top earning black men and woman inn America. The top 1% of black folks are growing even richer while the rest...
