Okay, I HAVE to ask....

Exactly WHY do you think violence plagues your neighborhood, and not mine?

And please don't blame corporate America because they won't hire high school dropouts with extensive criminal histories who cannot speak or write proper English.

One of these days you may FINALLY realize that it's not about race or income. It's about character, education, demeanor, and a positive attitude.

We have more Black doctors, lawyers, judges and businessmen than ever. We have a Black president. We have a Black associate justice on the Supreme Court. The two prior secretaries of state were Black.

In 99.99% of their cases, they had at least one loving, caring parent or grandparent got them out of the swine-pit inner city and would not allow them to fall into lockstep with their hoodlum friends.

As long as you accept junior coming home at 3AM carrying a 9mm and more money than you make in a week, don't kick when people DO judge and DO hold you responsible for your own community standards.

No one can turn your community around except YOU.

"I would tell young people to start where they are with what they have and that the secret of a big success is starting with a small success and dreaming bigger and bigger dreams, I would tell them also that a young Black woman or a young Black man can't dream too much today or dare too much if he or she works hard, perseveres and dedicates themselves to excellence." - John H. Johnson
