14. "it's another form of blameshifting" In response to In response to 10 Tue May-31-05 01:54 PM by suave_bro
there are no fathers in the homes, black folks are having more and more children at younger ages, there has been a TOTAL breakdown of the black family in this country and we are too afraid to address that issue out of embarrassment and denial.
now what u have here to two different approaches to this problem and both are counterproductive. one group is arguing that the media be our parents and providers. lil tremaine's father is a player and is nowhere around and his momma is out working 2 jobs, so now the TV should be the parent. then there is group 2 who doesn't necessarily feel that the media should be the black communities daddy, but should be more "understanding" and be "caring" to the black "situation"...
again, none of these groups are preaching personal responsibility or even TRYING to get the root of these problems out of fear of being considered race traitors and sellouts...also, none of these groups are dumb enough to REALLY challenge the media with their "philosophies" because deep down (WAAAAAAAAY DOWN) they know its bullshit. they know that we can do alot better and to literally expect for the media to raise our children is absurd.
