I don't care anymore

People are getting mad about this picture, and rightfully so, but who cares? They were talking about Congress, not Obama, but I am sure they knew what they were doing and knew it would be taken that way so weak excuse. My problem is people get very mad over this for nothing.

Here's why I don't care. My parents adopted my shit faced cousins kids because she was taking drugs and dating a coke dealer, she is pregnant, I could at this point care less if she died. This was the first time I had witnessed a person high on drugs crashing and I have no heart for her or anyone else. People complain there is racism, so? If you want to be a millionaire in this country you can be one. If you work hard you can be whatever you want no matter what race you are. I would actually believe sexism is a much bigger problem then racism. Instead we have a bunch of negative statistics for us black folk because we externalize our problems, that shit starts at home.

The Obama thing doesn't bother me because he is president, he could care less. If klansmen were taking shots I would be upset but cartoons, no matter how racist they are don't hurt people. I brought up my cousin because people talk about how black men are being killed by cops, who? When was the last time a law student was killed by a cop? No it's pooky and them trying to steal a car. If you commit a crime in this society and you are black, expect to be shot. Instead of committing less crimes they keep on and have Al sharpton get on tv.

Here's some things to think about...
You don't want to get shot by the cops, shut your mouth.
You don't want to be accused of being a dead beat dad, respect your woman and don't sleep around.
You hate stereotypes, break them.

I am tired of defending criminals. Now I am not saying anyone deserves to die I am thinking if theres a good chance you will be killed by the cops, sit your ass in school and work hard instead of "hustling." All these ghetto stories about having a crack head for a mom and still loving her, fuck you and fuck her. Anyone willing to take drugs when they have a child doesn't deserve a second chance.

We live in a country where any black man can rise to be president yet there are still so many of us who cry racism. We all know it exist, but that doesn't give an excuse for the behavior of our culture at all. I used to be one on the side lines rooting for black folks but don't care anymore. It's 2009, I don't care about poor anyone else (white, spanish, etc...) then why should I care for you?

I dunno my cousins child being abused, she taking drugs in front of her has really opened my eyes to the problems we have in our culture and it disgust me. If you are doing great, do great, don't make excuses for the ignorant. I say become teachers, tutorers, and focus on the kids...fuck the adults.

The cartoon was definitely a poor choice...too many different ways to take it. Somebody had to stop and think, "Hey this might be a bad idea."

I just had this exact convo with ATLien last night. We blame so much of our ills on everybody else but we never stop to take responsibility for our own actions. Your child is cussing the teacher out in class cuz all you do is cuss at her when she's home. He doesn't know what to do with a book because you only buy him video games. We keep waiting for something/someone to come and save us while we continue the same reckless behavior. I agree that nothing can really be done to change their parents so I say fuck em! This is why I devote my time to my kids, throw my tiny pebbles in the pond and wait to see what happens in the long run.

Good shit Flip!!!
