Unfortunately I agree with ya my sista. They are not gonna do "jack" like you say as why I have NEVER been star-stucked....and I live in Cali. And see celebrities and the like all the time. Thing is? A lot of blackfolks talk a lot of shyte about being black, brave, courageous and alladat. But when it comes down to it? They are no where around when you NEED them OR if they are around they have a focked up attitude toward their own people. It is really SHAMEFUL. Because all of what is currently going on? Can be easily rectified. We have the voices....the people to represent. But we don't have support from wealthy/well to do blacks in our community. Which make me BELIEVE that that brown paper bag? Has NEVER left. This is reminds me of what Baldwin said one time "The crown has bought all we have to do is wear." I think a lot of blacks don't know that and there may lie the problem. But!
