I was at my girlfriends graduation at FSU Saturday, and after she walked I ran down to get a picture of her walking back to her row. No joke, there was a black girl on her cell phone bitching into it about how long it was taking. She was walking back to her seat, less than 20 seconds after walking across a stage to be recognized as a college graduate- and on her cell phone bitching. Sad.

A black guy dressed in an African suit that had shoulders w/pads about 4 feet wide showed up about30 minutes after everybody walked(they were doing the doctorates and masters when he showed up) and walked down to the front row with his 5 year old son(who was wearing a gold chain that hung to his belly button and a medallion on the end of it about the size of a coaster) and his daughter of about 20. The dad had 5-8 dreadlocks that were hanging down past his knees and the rest were tucked into a hat that looked like Marge Simpsons hair. His dreads were swinging back and forth as he went down the steps and hit at least 6 people as he went down. They got to the front row and his daughter -during the middle of the graduation for those getting their doctorates(one guy was getting his 61st)- the daughter screamed out her sisters name and started waving and hooting. How embarassing that your family shows up 2 hours late and then screams at you while people are being hooded for their doctorates at an FSU graduation.

Are you surprised Danny? Black culture looks down upon traditional sucess - How can you expect men to suceed when the term 'oreo' not only exists, but is common, and generally accepted... Black men trying to get a legitimate education, turn down drug abuse, or keep a monogomous relationship are taunted and looked down upon. Sometimes by white men, but much more often by other blacks.

^^ Then I guess they are just obligated to keep up the bad rap? White people get taunted for being churchy, keeping their virginity, being pussywhipped, or not drinking or smoking. It's as if they don't want to accept the fact that it's easier to be succesful in this world now than it was when the parents of current AA highschoolers were getting into the working world.

"This country is filled with highly successful black men who are leading balanced, stable, productive lives working all over the labor market," said Hugh Price, former president of the National Urban League. "They're stringing fiber-optic cable for Verizon or working the floor at Home Depot. . . . It's a somewhat invisible story."

Working at home depot is succesful?

BTW, at the FSU graduation Saturday, there were just at 2,000 graduates- MAYBE 50 of them were AA.

I have a black neighbor who is educated and speaks as though. The people I have the problems with are the ones who speak the hip hop language, as soon as someone starts spitting out the yo's and ho's, theyve lost my attn. and already labled them as uneducated or ignorant, its especially upsetting when you hear a white person who has adopted ebonics as his or her primary language. Like "Malibus Most Wanted". Its sad that some of the black culture would look down on others trying to better themselves by educating themselves or becoming successful in some way>

No, not even close. Where do you see anything resembling that? I am saying that they hold themselves down now, and take pride in it. Then they will turn around and blame their problems on whites and police. Obviously not all blacks have the same attitude (as shown by the referenced article) but a lot of them do, and the ones that don't do not make a big point of contradicting them like Bill Cosby does.

I was just joking with ya man. I agree with what your saying to an extent, but would extend it to encompass society not just one group of people.

Also I think black youths think its either make millions like rappers or athletes and buy that mansion with the bentley or do the street thing(sell drugs, steal, etc.) and there is no in between. Im still young and I want to live a comfortable life so im working towards that goal little by litte. I dont imagine myself with a Tony Soprano type mansion and 10 cars in the driveway anytime soon but I see myself succeeding in life and not struggling to survive. You just have to be realistic about it.

**I know its not all black youths and not just blacks that think this way

no he's saying that their culture tends to promote such behaviors. its like a bucket of crabs, as soon as one try's to climb out of the bucket the rest pull him back down.

White peeple tend to blame everyone else for their own misfortunes as well - that's just human nature. And most Black people aren't naive enough to think OJ is innocent. Every black guy I've ever asked about it thinks he's guilty.
Believe me, I work in a pizza shop once a week, and most of the whites there scorn success just as much as the blacks. People just suck in general.

FARGO, I don't know how the f*ck you tried to quote in post #17, but I never said that.

Somebody else on here misquoted me once on here like a EFFING idiot and I wold have loved to strangle them the way that they quoted my whole post except for the last sentence and then said "Yeah but what about the laid off, the handicapped, those with children??" when the last sentence of my post that he left out in the quote was the answer to what he quoted.
