Killer Mike explodes: Kill your massa.

Best thing I have seen all week:

https://www.youtube.com/w...X1ZbBgRntU

Get your own shit. He earlier made a good point. Blacks get mad when Republicans talk about self help, but Farrakhan says the same thing and people cheer.

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

But Republican get upset if Black people do "self help "- look at Obama. When he graduated from the finest law school in America, instead of taking a well paying corporate job, he became a community organizer in the heart of the ghetto, to advocate for those who needed it and lacked the knowledge. And the Republicans mocked him for doing that.

Their cries of "self help " is really just a subtle way to point out that Black people are downtrodden, and it's all their own fault.

Which Blacks are you talking about and how would you know they get mad. Furthermore Farrakhan is full of shit. Ask him what he did with all that money he collected from the Black men at the million-man March some years ago? Did he take that money and build anything into the Black community or keep among his believers?

Why is killer mike playing blind to the many Black Americans with their own businesses?

No one seems to shed the light on the many Blacks in this country, who have successful careers, and businesses.

Can somebody tell me why some idiots play blind to the early 1900s, and prior to that, of the Black wealth era, during segregation, when there was so much Black wealth? Now do they remember who went into those towns and bombed them, terrorized those wealthy Blacks? Lynched snd killed many of them? Stole their homes, personal belongings? Many of the mindsets of the racists that did all that to them, had the similar, racist mindsets of many white repubs today, who talk the bs about Blacks needing to get their own shit, as though they never have. They pull the bs that Blacks want everything free, and yet many of those same repubs, can’t stand for Blacks to have anything or see them prosper in this country. History is evident of that.

How in the world today are so many ignoring the hundreds of thousands of Blacks, all over the U.S. with their own businesses? Professionals, Educators, etc. unf’kingbelievable. I’m so tired of these idiots lumping all Blacks in one pot, as though they are the same. Killer Mike shut the fuck up with that bs.
And 2freaky you need to get off that stereotyped bs.

Repubs need to worry about why they try to hide the white poor, from the media, and why they don’t tell the white poor to get self-help. They only remember they exist when they con them for their votes.

Below is from The Book of Prince recent New Yorker article by his co-biographer Dan Piepenbring. It is exactly what you are talking about -

"Prince wanted to teach readers about Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a wellspring of black entrepreneurship that flourished in the early twentieth century. After the Civil War, freed blacks flocked to the booming city and bought land. Segregation forced them to the Greenwood neighborhood, where their proprietorship and ingenuity created a thriving community. Soon, Greenwood boasted more than a
hundred black-owned businesses, as well as nearly two dozen churches, several schools, and a public library. Prince loved reading about that amassing of wealth. Then came Tulsa’s 1921 race massacre, when thousands of armed whites, their hatred fanned by accusations that a black boy had attempted to rape a white girl, doused Greenwood in kerosene and burned it down block by block, looting and plundering as they went. Hundreds died; about ten thousand lost their homes. Black Wall Street was decimated."

Very true. They always want to paint all (or most) Black people as poor drug addled losers who abandon their children and spend all their time living for something to steal and too stupid to vote for anything except whoever promises them the biggest welfare check

Mike is right though. Blacks were arguably doing better economically at the height of racism than they are now, what with blacks being some of the most skilled laborers, Greenwood, etc.

During segregation in the early 1900s. Tulsa, Oklahoma just being one of several wealthy, Black towns back then. The money circulated within, which produced wealth within.

There may not be that kind of massive wealth, circulating in one major Black town, today, like it was back then, because, today, many middle and upper-class Blacks live in racially-diverse communities. There are many economically successful Blacks, but they are spread out, since segregation ended.

I have heard years ago, during the mid 90s that in Quincy, FL they had Black millionaires there, but they didn’t advertise their wealth. I used to hear of a Black millionaire club that held an annual function, there for club members only. though. Many got wealthy off of Coca-Cola shares, that was passed down to family members.

It's definitely smart for wealthy people not to advertise their wealth, but especially black folks. There are definitely cities in the US where the black community seems to thrive more than others. Is there any kind of network for black business owners, or some way for black folks to find out what black-owned businesses there are local to them so they can support them?

Of course there are networks that are online. Blacks have been networking for years. You can find lists of Black business online. This is nothing new. They are easy to find online. That’s how many support Black businesses, and of course, by word of mouth within the community/at work/college, etc. Many people make money with their passions.

Many connect through various forms of social media. Over the years, and today I know quite a few people who have started their own businesses, and the internet, is a big help to get one’s business out there.

The thing is, not everyone is cut out to be an entrepreneur or a business owner. Some people shine best in a corporate environment. And in that case, it is imperative that all obstacles are removed- especially racial and ethnic and sexual ones- so people can thrive and be allowed to move up the ladder within a corporate structure.

And of course, there are people who work best outside the corporate structure completely, like blue-collar workers such as plumbers and electricians and roofers and the like.

Everybody has to perform the function that is best for them. The goal is to make sure that they are not hampered by discrimination of any kind.

He’s not my brother just because he’s Black. Just stop. You need to get off the stereotype bs, that Blacks need the government to survive. Just remember in the past who depended on the backs of enslaved Blacks to survive. They were the human welfare checks, whose work, blood, sweat and tears, provided for those who forced them to work for free.

I get that and agree with you, that entrepreneurship is not for everyone, but I was more or less talking about outside of working for a corporation or the 9 to 5. Not everyone wants to work for a corporation, take a blue collar job or be a fed, state or city worker. We’re all individuals with different dreams and goals. Just tired of people assuming all Blacks have the same economic intentions and goals. No other group is screened, monitored and asked to work 3 times harder as Blacks, as though we have to answer for our hard work to everyone else. It’s time to start viewing Black Americans as individuals with their own dreams and goals.
