Black on Black

A Black man tells it like it is to a disrespecting black H.S. audience.

I see a lot of potential in the faces of those kids and like it is for everyone else, the chance to squander that potential. I hope they listened for their sake.
Thanks from imaginethat and whet

I understand where he is coming and I can tell from the sound of his voice that he's hurting. I've been there. This is the thing, he will need to put them in small groups and get to know them personally....they need to be able to express their goals, dreams, fears, talents, opinions and solutions etc.

I try my best to put power in the hands of students when I'm speaking/teaching. People have invited me to speak in front of large groups like that and I decline because I don't feel I can impact a child or make a connection in a large group setting like that. My goal is to build positive relationships with them...not just offer some some cute, motivational words. We are way past that point as black people right now.

These troubled kids are seeing death, they're taking pictures with loaded guns like it's normal, they're being sexually/mentally/physically abused by a variety of adults that are supposed to protect them. They are also not getting any type of mental health services (besides prescriptions, if that)....they are not receiving adequate individualized instruction...they are depressed and suicidal yet labeled thugs and animals. They know the world HATES them because of their race & hell yeah, they deserve to be angry.

When I was a teenager I never felt like the entire world hated me. These black kids today have an unspeakable amount of hatred directed at them, so of course, they will behave differently than white kids though this man should know that whites & Jewish have their own set of serious problems as well...and there are black kids who know how to behave just as well as any other race

Troubled black kids are basically not having their survival needs met as students, as children, and as human beings. What we Black adults are supposed to do is guide and nurture them on how to turn that pain into power & release their anger in productive ways.

This is why I always try to figure out a kid's talent or passion....it's about empowering kids, strip them of their power and they will find negative ways to feel powerful.

I am devoted to helping save our black kids. So what I started doing was volunteering in this (violent) middle school & while the 6th and 7th graders loved me, those 8th graders, man, they were sometimes mean and I could not get them to open up & talk, but hey, that means there is something I need to do differently with older kids.

If black adults pay attention to kids and love them, these black kids would be great as hell. We have work to do and I am certainly doing my part to help bring some love to lives of these Black kids who have no one to believe in them.

They have so much potential and they're so very smart. It runs me crazy because they are so talented and they are critical thinkers, and natural leaders...yet they have so much pain in their lives they just end up being the next new black mug shot for the world to state "see, told you blacks are animals." It's amazing, with just a little love, and attention....& restructuring of schools, our race could turn around and be so amazing.

These kids are so creative and smart, the traditional school setting does nothing for them. When I'm speaking with kids I tell them all the time, "You are smarter than my generation..& you are braver. You have the answers to save our race"

I thought the same thing.

Here's a 67 video, complete with a Farfisa keyboard in the background.
