Like them being known me and being trying to, I don't think they just feel like they can't come at me the same, because I'm really a street person. Alright, you ready to start okay, ladies and gentlemen, we are rolling into another episode of the Candice Owens Show. I will be. and I will say for the first time in my political career, I have been feeling pessimistic about the black community. I into this space feeling optimistic and like there was a change that could be implemented if we were willing to have the tough conversations when I look up at the world today- and I see these protests- and I see these riots- and I see who and what is at the center of these rights, when I see black businesses being burned down, when I see black
being martyred, and when I see black athletes and black celebrities and black community leaders sanctioning this violence in our community the remaining mom on the law larger instances of violence nor community? I wonder if black Amerika will ever get ahead when I sit down and I think I myself about why we ended up in this predicament. I always come up with the answer of culture. What is black culture? How is it impacting black America? Is it for the better or is it for the worse here to discuss all of those things with me, a first and foremost a personality if you are not following online, he goes by the moniker king, face welcomed they can show so in shower Revere. Think of them. in faces also for those you that are listening. He is one of my blexit ambassadors. He speaks to the black community and by himself he is the founder of something called. The dad project which stands for developing
being american dreams. There's some! for that we need to get into, and I could go off on a tangent here. Just give us your take on what's happening right now with black lives matter, and all of these protests and riots mean I think is in a sense, a test to see who they can control and we can black males matter they've always used their emotions of black people in order to get their agenda to be pushed, and I've noticed that, like everything is emotional, I like then you, you got shooting somebody and they put this certain narrative narrative and that that in our community it bills, fear and once you're afraid of something, especially with officers supposed to feel safe around, and they keep putting narrative, people are gonna now be put in. Putting more positions to have those things happen because that's how they make money, that's how they get their exposure is. Do the death of black men, they don't get it from Ashley, you know,
setting black lives at all. Nothing is about black lives matter that has to do with any black lives. if somebody can show me when they've been around to actually prevent d George Foot incidents, as you would say from happening, then I can look at black lives like there's a positive thing, but then doing that they only come around election time, the only come around when a black black dead man gets killed by a cop, that's white or proceed to be white and they use that to actually you use. To destroy our son within ourselves is like them is a winner mass. Killing. The immune system is weakening as more and more and more and more and more and more so then you look at it like now. I could get up because they are ready Logan! Now, even what does your voice situation? These people there really don't care about that stuff. That I noticed was like it has messed up, the point where they're praising them? That's? Why
when people say all you agree with Canada love like yes, we have to stop praise in these type of people and black, a matter? That's all they have a push I've never seen in my life. If the if this exists, then I want to see it up kid going to school mine, his business. You know get good grades, no record. get shot back up. Is it a coincidence that air body body DES Abacha has a bad record same everybody would I enjoy them like. you said he so perfect online. It may sound says how what but that woman I put the gun to his stomach. What are you thinking nor right now up like you, to making him like the he's gone earth, I want the worst you no special pregnant woman come on. You have to have some kind of morals, no matter what crimes you involved in, because when I grew up. It was no women. Kids, if you're dealing with somebody's this man on me,
kids in women? I will leave you, we see you won't even industry like we see what would you baby or your wife. you got a pass right now. Bro I'll catch you on a rebound. There's a level of respect for women and children, and that has been written into the culture of not just a all societies for a very long time, women or children are seen as most vulnerable and when you see a pregnant, and this is all I could think about you know, reading that story of she gets a knock at the door and somebody is pretending just the plotting that went into this. You know pretending to be a part of the water department and by the time, children's a door and realize if something is wrong and she tries to force it shut. You have Georgia Lloyd, who, by the way is monstrous and size. I believe these six seven would willingly have any of you. I heard everything I think the correctest is six seven very, very big promo very muscular fortresses way inside to pregnant,
When she's home alone takes the barrel of his gun and put it to her stomach eyes, a friend pistol whips her and there they they robbed her place. They took her wallet and it's not like this was one incident that happened and it was in how you know that was back when I was under up. No, that was the ninth time that went to prison. It is really hard to go to prison nine times in our personal beliefs in second chances. I know you do two by the way I want to get into also your story that we're not. This is thinking that this is people that thing people can make a mistake. They can people can make mistakes them right. but not too crazy to go to jail right right. Have you been to prison? times n and that's a record. That's got to be some sort of a record, and what does it do to?
psyche of a child. When you pretend that this person is just in the inner, an ultimate victim, a hero, they're calling you may hero, did you hear the eulogy? I mean you would have thought this person spent his whole life dedicated to God and just trying to up with his community one He was terrorizing it. I know a lot of people that terror is a community and stay positive things to my is Why wouldn't give the same energy to Nipsey hustle? That's exactly! Why was actually doing surface community. Despite there, he was a part of the gang he still said YO. You know I still want to build my community. I want to make what Crip is about really stand for something thing with the blood thing. You know I'm a former, blood member. You know I'd rather not I'd rather not say a form of blood men. I'd rather say, I'm form a gang banger because there's a difference because really what blood is about when you But when you look at it is badly love override oppression and destruction. So that's what I believe the same thing with
cribs, you know, community revolution and process. So when you look at these things. These was always created to benefit and help our community. It wasn't about destruction is about protecting our community. It was about making you know don't write things, but in due time it became something destructive. at the same time, look and see how so who comes from that again. Should I say you know what I want to help save lives. I want to teach my community how to build. He started building so much in this community and do that. Maggie his light taken from them, a person has evolved with the same game. So I What went when I see the sunlight Why you gotta and act like this when nifty died? Yeah, maintain up everything because he was actually building a community, you guys live in yesterday's up not to bring
listen to it, but that dude should have been killed immediately. You know I'm saying, but nothing happens, but then a George flaw dies who's. Not, wait, member of society. phrase like some kind of hero like listen, I understand he died in a horrible way. It was messed up, we're not going to deny that. But to praise him as somebody like he was good. No, the things we keep ignoring is comply like comply. What is so difficult with that was so difficult. Will. Respect was so difficult about that. I bar cop, I don't automatic to get nervous. Everybody else because- and I will have nothing to MECCA though most I can do- is get it take it now. Could I avoid take it just in case is as respectful as possible. We fool me over at night I wrote all my windows turned all the lights on car take mucky programme of car.
If a man was there were when they come You'Re- honest stand a fear that they have an officer if they can. If they were approaching a car, It didn't happen many times that the news don't talk about biggest, ass soon as they up to the window know what they expect. That's what you've been now you see comes to be nervous to walk in there like this cuz. They don't know what to expect. But if I turn old lies on windows? There my hand, There are still we keel tablet move. He knows He knows more about our noses, nobody else in it. He knows I'm not going with and he knows don't no weapon to do anything too, because my hands on the steering wheel, they come comfortable. They in their energy automatically ships, so even if they going, gonna be one. The sketchy cause the energy shift is like okay, they respect me because you doing officer, Sir, registration sure I don't have to go. will be over for what you did that, because I'm black
and that's the automatic first thing that comes to the mob, but this is what they're being programmed to think and I'm like that's dangerous, because when you nervous you might make a move, you shouldn't, make and causes, skate, if not more than you they deal with this every day so date, especially now this climate is like you can get shot. So, teaching our kids, fear and stuff like that. We- to be more on teaching them how to prevent it from happening. I have a respect for the job that deadline I respect your life comply, we comply. You given excuses it's gonna be justifies. What would allow cases can get off if you would The full story. Couldn't what is so easily, listening like now become another They saw in it was resisting. Why not I kept saying that I said: there's women were missing a big part, this footage, because you see him out of the car and then
apparently against the wall and then suddenly the next thing that we possibly see as the nine minute video some obviously happened, and when these toxicology reports came back and show that he was on fentanyl like to people understand that Joe is functional, will literally make you stop. Breathing and conventional is, is the most deadly drug that you could possibly put into your system? There are constant overdoses, you know my friend who's. A surgeon was saying you. He said to me that I give this to my patient. Is it? Is it barely breathing, but you know when you give him so when he said he can't breath he's not lying. If he's on Ential, you know, and he could have not been able issues breathing before the cops even arrested him it. I'm not saying that this cop is anyway justified he's not this discussion to have sentinel right one hundred times stronger, more potent than morphine, I mean have you I mean I had to get more for you in the hospital. Didn't you do you feel anything right, this guy's take this casually as he's got into a store with China with a counterfeit bill. You know you
you're the night when one call and the woman is saying this guy something's wrong with him he's on something and we're pretending. This was a person, as you said, It was just walking down the street, you know, trying to get to school, trying to get to his class, and here he here we are being hunted by cops. How difficult is it to comply? How difficult is it to not go to prison nine times? How difficult is it to not be high holding a counterfeit bill you'll have the cops, calling you don't put yourself in any circumstance close to that, and people have a hard time having that conversation, because centres around respect, and I think the black Moody has a very hard time with respect that were a very disrespectful finally, we celebrate being disrespectful or anti establishment. F, the police right call call the female Spi males bitches, right. How can our youth flourish when work eaching and promoting and celebrating and applauding disrespect disrespect is rioting disruption.
That is burning down neighborhood. They had nothing to do with George Lawyer disrespect is a police officer that has nothing to do with George Floyd, and we don't have celebrities standing up and saying it's wrong in our community. I mean, of course they wouldn't because so if you would have dealing with with to look cool in front of the the market for community everything's about being about being cool. I tell people, I don't want to be cool cuz. This era was just his cool. It's too destructive. I don't want to be cool. If that's the case, let me be the one most uncle person possible and I've become that, because I'm vocal and open about how I feel about certain things, like I said, even with hip hop, I'm very vocal about it, because I know that it's a part of the problem he could tell people not to wear Jersey anymore and put on a button up and people do it that's the same way now when you look at it, we don't have like he was mentioned earlier. At least he was even through the music in it. He talked about his fast and his life. At least he still I gave some positive things into the music. Now I just do jobs,
You know, get high shoot people like and I'm like in Brooklyn right now. When you look, the crime rate is going up in Brooklyn we had the other day. There was literally Ten seconds shootings in ten minutes, like into my different areas in Brooklyn, so is like what did What influence that, when you look at the lifestyle of Chicago we don't took into oh drill, music and answered soon, as that we got down into our community the gang vows shot up extremely but it is all about being cool as you will know that to be cool. It's funny. You say that, because I am so. I was just telling you off that that I added addendum to my book on culture, and I literally said Black America has a problem with wanting to be cool, use, the exact words and there's a court, in that chapter that I want to bring up, which was a quota was written by Confucius. Who was a chinese philosopher, I think it was like he was a child was far from for food. I mean long time ago, and
he said if one should design You know whether a kingdom is well governed if its morals are good or bad. The quality of the music will furnish the answer, and when I read that quote, I instantly thought about Black America and the quality quality of the music right. What you're in in your ear is going to tell you whether or not the morals in the streams are good and bad, and I talked about the irony that you don't today. People will say they had this concert. What acting black is right and that this is what it means to be black and you therefore Cannas are not black, because you're speaking proper English right, because you're not interested in having a fight. You know, because maybe you don't have baby dad. You know baby daddies and all this stuff going on and the thing is, is I say, actually I'm very blocked. I just don't recognize this that gate of being black, as this is not what black was in the nineteen forty is now a black was nineteen fifties does not when my grandfather was listening to music. The number one song was the temptations, my girl right anymore. I write about this new chapter of the first words of my girl I got.
sunshine on a cloudy day and when it's cold outside I've got the month of May and then I looked at the top song right now in Black America and it's and the stallion and beyond, say in the first lyrics are like I'm that bitch this bitch and I'm thinking this happened in the span of forty years right, forty years. So what happened to black culture- and I mean that is what happened to black culture, because once it became like you have to live. A certain type away. Now is like there's no other way to live, as I am sure we can gradually stupidity in the black community like the most stupid you are is like yeah. And I tell you I was like: why do you think kids didn't want to grow up going to school, because going you became a earth? Is I made over speculate? Look as you go, you can just tell even when it comes to like even when it, Comes too late people come out of jail, copy This summit is coming home from college. You see it. difference in love and respect
who gets it. Gotta comes from jail, but gotta just came wasn't his as a college? for years now Sleep haven't pills, I get they met with your drugs. I keep them up from the keep we know go to school, going to working on, things they make it happen, and the next thing you know they come to the hood like yours is got my we also saw me. I said the that gets locked up comes off from jail your here's, ten states, bro, you know you. together, man did it get back on a black, the red light and I'm like wiring ones give that ten thousand the guy that just finished college. He might have some student loans. He might need that help. because if you put him in a position of power, making sure he's good he'll have more incentive to come back to the hood and say YO. I want to help build something, because
success. You ass a boy me from when I was going to school, but is it it? It doesn't happen? I that they push those people with the community is like every time I try to help these fools. They keep attacking me. You know what ask them they can stay. Tat, an inability all his acne different like no. people are not realizing which are doing that people people mentally, especially with young kids, if you tell them that, oh have to have a certain sneaker on or you have to have a certain dish on or you're, not gonna be accepted. Like you said you can't you to talk, in a certain type of vernacular, I'm not really big. In order for you to seem like, like you're cool, at the same time, even for me like that's why I connect with a lot of them, because I speak like them, I'm not great with grammar and all that, You sell sums happy with someone like me with them. in this area, but it is I grew up so I understand why they react like that.
As dangerous far community is not good. If you can see, The education of us going down down and win time where what is this, you can't do you have access to really! You have literally in your hand, I carry all day, but you prefer to be on it's so true, and I want to go back to what you just said about. You know that moment where you have your person, who could be from the hood and you're becoming more and more successful and the more successful you become a lesser of it wants any anything to do with you and this is so tragic, and it reminds me of when I was starting early on. I you know was able to have a conversation with a very well known and respected by conservative and he's he warned me. He said you're gonna get to a point where you just gonna be done with dumb with the community
are you going to realise, ok, fine, keep the way you want and understand, even if say out of cynical, be successful by yourself right, and I can imagine that that has happened to so many. Let me think about people that the congolese rice right, this woman started her life living in a real racist America right and she talks about that mean you can't say this woman is not black. What you do right? You said here you say Clarence, Thomas stuff, like they grew up in segregated America. You said they're, not black, because they became successful. You know he's the the second, I think black Supreme Court Justice ever you know you, don't you don't celebrate him, you he's? Not black, and there are so many sub doktor been Carson. I mean he survives almost every purity test. You talk about him. He grew up in a single parent home in a poor neighborhood in Detroit, his mother wasn't literate. He went to a school and was bullied for being black. You know, cuz, he somehow ended up being able to go to a white school he's a whole story but fell in love with a black woman at you know at,
Mary hurry still married her and you have stripped him away of his blackness. Why? Why right? And it is so, if that's what it means to be black right, what it be black is you have to pretend to be uneducated. You you to to speak. Broken English are supply and eventually say. Ok, you know what I'm done with this. I try I've tried my life, and they have, I mean They- tried their whole lives to help the black Moody and we just rejected them. We said their uncle times in their cooled, and their ratio what are they? What are they betraying a broken? culture showing the positive side of our culture they're showing and to me as it is so like what makes you think we cancel proper plan. What makes you think they're just because we come from somewhere became again. It's the same thing when I want my maga hat, and people made me famous for it. I'm, like I shouldn't be famous for wearing a maga hat, that's insultant to assume that a black person doesn't think for themselves.
That's really what it came to live with you who we had on? Why is it like an so I have my mind and I want the best don't care who gives us the best is long. As we are able to create solutions. What else matters you dare canting for myself eating using to be like you, because everybody else says follow this. I'm supposed to follow that. Well, I've been watching, We will follow the same thing for ever and is never worked, so you we continue to process. Do you think I'm going to be an idiot like that? Famous thing that you would like to say, but will insanity is like if you keep doing the same over expecting different resolve yeah, it's insane so you were many, be insane with the rusty and look stupid like the rest of you I wouldn't and imposed on a fake. The imo is gonna say to the truth, regardless of what I'm gonna get get for, I don't care it's the truth? I'm will be vindicated anyway. Maybe not there only within a deal with the pressure, but over
All in town. People like us are gonna, be considered real heroes. But we keep pushing our heroes away from us and they took them out. We don't got nobody representing us. We got nobody doing this, I'm like even when I it wasn't alone. If you would like a gentleman bro, you got somebody that is respected by the White House. Wrote like. We never had nobody that I look like me in the White House represented. I got tattoos all over my face, my hands, the White House- and you would think people would judge me and it's like they didn't. love me and respect with my mind, and I I'm able to do but if there are some in opposition that can actually make a phone call to somebody. Does in a position to help our community. Why are you attacking because all of What are you guys the support they have no connection to anything, they may be fame Miss they made him, but when it comes to actual power they don't. Have any like, I'm the conduit for you guys, I'm the
that's? What I'm glad you look? This was gonna neighbourhood. This is where we need, but they'll attack me for thinking that I'm not helping my people, I'm like they like. Oh, you got a whole bunch of wife fans, I'm like what am I you know what know what they tell me. My don't go thanks If what you doin for- this illegal love. What you do for your community, did. I say I love what you do us as Americans. I mean a lot of them do, but they are the always add. I love what you doin for your community but they look at it, as are you just do what they like do you wanna, be weighed on work? Isn't that crazy, though I mean, I guess some other stuff, that people say in our community, and I am. I am convinced that we are the most racist, but somehow we've sanctioned being racist towards white people. So nobody recognizes as racism right so case in point, when I post posted a photo, you know of my husband and someone wrote, I mean the race his comrades than ever, but this must be why she's, conservative, all the white man this, I suggest imagine that reversed
imagine a white guy is married to a black woman and he post a photo of his black wife and a bunch of white people comment under their oh look. You build their that's. Why you're betraying our race, its unfathomable? Could you If a bunch of white people comments and under that, after seeing a black woman wearing a white man, people would go crazy. They would say this is an example of racism, but black people do it comfortably comfortable. You know talking about and I'm sitting here when you even say that you should be ashamed? Give yourself were not known your history. Your ancestors died for that right. Ok, like what went, what love verses Virginia, the Supreme Court case when they literally got in prison a black and white person for falling in love, you I mean people fought to end, that sort of discrimination that you could marry, who you love right, true equality being able to marry, who you love where their background that matter and you're ashamed of that. You? U? What you're you say you want integration but you're fighting for more segregation. You want people to hate what I don't eat: white people.
Don't feel that way, and I don't feel like I have to hate white people to love my people. That's it it's not either or you can. I love all people if they're good and I hate all people if they're, stupid and stud, comes in every different color. You know what I mean: every different color, every ethnicity, I've seen I've seen stupid all stupid all across the board, and I just I hate that that pressure that is applied, that this is what it means to be. back and I'm thinking to myself. What is the definition I actually did a post about. I said: what is it that defines me being black? Is it cause I'm doing something positive because You look at. It will only don't positive things while community, so in order. to to be accepted, we have, we have to be doing negative. You have to be killing people, you have to be you drugs. You have to be dumb stuff, like That's that's not! Where we represent, we don't come from that told him the ones that didn't care about. None of that, like like Jack Johnson, who was the first black celebrity boxer
at that time, like you said they would go to jail, he married a white woman. He did he did and he went. He went to prison for and actually it's funny is the price as it is one that you know really told me that lorry, why you wonder, pardon him and its it to me. I think it set part part of the gap that we're facing is that there is as educational gap where they, actually you have a bunch of us No, nothing about plaque history, the they only no black present the only no black, media and what what people are telling them and what it means to be black. And then you have that culture being a by celebrities largely ignorant. Liberation, It is number one and Jimmy Emmy he's so talented on the court, but this is not an educated man right into he takes the b and a bunch we prefer. when they got all yes, he the bronze, actually black leubronn. You are hurting black a mirror. when you lie when you dont resources, but when you send a twin say, were literally being hunted absent, any facts,
not a hero in that regard, you're not being a hero, you're being an idiot and you're spreading that idiocy very quickly throughout our community, and your influence is huge. Your influence is huge. You have a responsibility to either shut up or research and know your facts right and if you're going to reach, know your fax and we just need you play basketball because you're billing at that right and you should be celebrated on the court. You're an amazing talent, but when you have our people outside from behind your Bel air, Multi million dollar mansion right having them. on outside moving now quickly to this deep on the place. It's not to hurt him he's got private guards, This man has a white chef, a white guy. I said white chef, white gardener, he's got white people waiting on him hand in let let me tell you that is racism. I want it today, please let me get more than whatever Lebron James Racism is. I want that racism wrecking right. He and you know
it really. Is it it's a broken culture edged broken society and hypocrisy, hurting things by also want to talk to you about something I realize. Even if lock Americans are aware and know the history right and you can get black conservatives who understand the history, much more who understand you know the ills of the law, and what the left has done, but still in that regard, they they bring to the conservative side the same bad habits that I was hoping black conservatives would be abandoning and what I'm talking about number one is conflict resolution black Americans do not know how to resolve basic conflicts, everything has to turn into a fight. I hate you forever you, I draw lines, it's like you're this gang or that gang, and you still It happened in politics. The hate mentality is big everywhere. I guess, because we come from the hater culture, like you said, conflict resolution right.
me? Firstly, I had a guy that shot at me right five times when in broad daylight, em all school in Queens, and the same guy he and again arrested did five years the same guy five years later. Would you make advent queens? I guess like he got basically like if he saw a ghost, so I guess you thought it was over for him. I said brother look, you did five years bro like if you're not over it at this time, then I wouldn't know what to say: I'm over it bro you didn't, kill me, you didn't, kill nobody. I know at the end of the day we're both alive. The best thing we could do is just just leave it alone. Do you know that same person used to of studio that I built in my in my in my in my community for people to come in, and you know we have free studio time, I taught them engineering.
how to be able to record themselves. They wouldn't indeed anybody and he's, like my brother now, like literally like my brother, like if I call him and ass, I have some drama here, a common handle anyone but modern. Even never try to enter entertainer, but the whole point is we can solve issues the mafia they could. The guy killed his Bravo two weeks ago, but because of the a a they? They will come together. A table table actually have a conversation. Conversation make sure Nobody knows that and I think a lot of times we get so quarter, but our motions that we don't look at the bigger picture at the end of the day, if I go and hurt him there's somebody that loves him too not I call her some right out in cycles is gonna keep going, go, who who's gonna end that cycle. We have to have one person in their mind. So you know what I ain't going to continue to cycle. and that's what I was about like I'm, not continuing this cycle, because
I know where it's going to go. So am I gonna? Let let my ego my pride pride take over over. Add add more people lives and being destroyed nine or do they so, like I said, example, is a hassle try to kill me and I was able to be cool with them. You you guys are to kill, kill because they only with the video like what they said. Why that was done, what's that has nothing to do with you here we always of work. I gotta tell you afterwards like you wouldn't even believe, and unlike for me, in my own opinion, because they're understand how to like. You said conflict resolution, They don't know how to have a real conversation to actually have an understanding of what's going on in your mind of why you choose certain things, and I attach that I attach that to intellect too. I think you know, as the education system continues to fail Black America, because it is selling Black America, you know when you can
Looking, California and seventy five percent of boys can't read and you can go into Baltimore by seventy five percent. Black boys can't pass the basic literacy exam. We can go into Baltimore and across five schools can't find one kid child. That's literate proficient in. in writing. You have an issue. We have a larger issue and the issue, as I understand it from some recent books that I read is that they have done on the education system, because they think anything that's considered. A challenge now is not fair to block America right, so you actually have schools at are teaching ebonics, because they're saying that the schools are to be more cultural and adapt the same thing with like Poor English should be required at another. Insisting on allowing kids can never happen again of English, and you know just speak spanish througout all of school, making sure those programs
are available, so we're seeing the sort of crowding of the education system and when you, if you can't, you know, think right, you're not gonna, be able to think through a situation or conflict right and say: ok, word of the benefits of this person. I'm upset about this. How what at? What are the three different ways I can handle this in my thing is always pick up the phone call, someone don't let it get to that being picked up, call. Somebody say what you think and and let that be- and let it be the end of it. But you see today- and I see this I've been shocked to see even amongst black conservatives public videos about each other. I mean there there's so few of us. You know that have a platform that could speak out. We can be an example right to to black children, I dont, know what to make of this world that we're hoping that will understand that conservatism is a better brand. You Kong's of conservative, but it is how you're acting conservatively. Is that really the example? You want to be this call out culture in and out. You likened off camera to the rap game like rat battle.
What are we doing? What are we teaching people? You know, how can we come together? It's sad, you know we just got to focus on Are you kidding you, for, I know a lot these people already lost, so it is really nothing. do for somebody like that. That has a certain mentality because they already feel how they feel you have to educate them from young. Even with my program is more about the program and certain things that they've been to. And only where you could do that is by gaining from year without it gave me away but we don't teach him that or you can't do something Think of the skin color like and we pushed s it in our community is I we affirm it so is like well, I've heard is more women a look? people telling me this every day we're pushing it our own weakening our I don't and they understand when you say these things, you're hurting us you're, not helping thinking you're, putting us on you ain't put me on a shit bro like tell me how weak I am can't do this. I can't do that, like you said, with the school system That proves how recent data so believe
we're, not even able to read, you don't want anybody. Do you speak English properly? Like you know, I'd like that Probably I would say, because I wasn't being old school, because I you know a certain lifestyle I was living school was not a priority. and I think maybe that kind of save me from being dominating him anyway. I'm just looking at how you know the way to our kids is now is like yo like how could we be, dumber in time we shall be smarter, honor but date, but they describing assault in us they need need help black people, I'm like no Oh poor, nothing, we're not blogger blind people. I don't wanna, be looked at that way like ochres our black, I can't do it it's like that's insulting to meet you. I don't know how anybody else's and take that as an insult. But for me, insulting, like we overcame every serious issue in brought forward black people.
So? How do we get to this point us to believe we can't do something like when I voted for biodiversity was away but if you ask I voted him because he was black, but not same reason, why you Vodafone, because he was black I'm just tired here, a black. We would excuses good emphasizes. How do I make do you want? I know- We gave be president by her how we got one now. What is your excuse now? Because there's nothing. We cannot do this. Oh, we don't have our own. What business I said wrong again, and these are today Oh, you don't have all banks wrong again stopped thinking we can do things be, but we don't show up. So the more you don't see the you think these kids want to be drug dealers because people in the hood that they see a successful. You know because bunch people be
come back. This is all of you, but I was being called names like necessarily actually, so you don't see acting light, so you don't see them people in the community? So They don't know that is other options to be successful and drive nice cars and have a nice house. They don't see these options, only options they get is depent the drug dealer. and the scams and in the and the Jack boys so these are the only options and it all negative options. Even I felt a trap myself, but at this, aims. Are these negative absence this other ways baby keep pushing the pre without able to let them see that away from the community, you only leaving them within four options. So what do you think is going to happen because people going to go, Because in our committee we that's how we have to give tangible things They ve been told ass, a whole life that they actually have to see something. Now, in order for fully believe it like. Alright, let me see what you in here Well, you said he was gonna. Do this? Well, let let me see that's when they'll start start kind of wake
and how could they play all it of any help? and that's why with me, I use myself an example, because I come from that. I'm like look bro. Look at me like look at me bro. How can you not do it and I come from the same steps. Circumstances is you. How did I do it? He do it or he did not no broke a truce. Mama, sir, are focused on what I wanted to do and I didn't wear it way in an until we develop that and I think, if self confidence Ray and that all lot of this really stems from insecurity and talking about when this happened. No, shall we steal this a pretty good job of talking about it really in the MID sixties, at the problem of the thing that happened in Black America, that change Everything in this is such an interesting thesis is freedom. So he says that you know when black Americans were actually fighting for their freedom, because there was a real struggle in place. They were doing everything they could. So they were you not being
Citizens the families were together and it was just a whole different. There was an actual community because there was a real struggle to fight for and then at the very moment that they got freedom, things change and he says- and this is an interesting philosophy- that freedom after years of actual oppression is a very hard concept to grapple with, because your whole time you're fighting for people to realize that you're not unequal right, you're like I, can be equal in the same as you please, please, please and finally, a society says: yep done you get your freedom and then he says people actually go through a period of like shocked because you're so used to being in this case, because now we have to grapple with the fact that they actually aren't equal because they shouldn't be because be because systematically oppressed, but now you're up your ear mixed up with white people, why people are more well read than you. You know, they're doing better at math and all the stuff, and the only way that you can catch up is through hard work right. But people don't want to do that work right. It's a bit easier, you feel, or
saying, oh well, the reason we're not there is because the semi question so you get into this. You know the self depeding cycle, because the only way you're gonna catch up is, if you do the work but you're not going to do the work, because you know you want to hide behind the boogeyman of re. Racism now and we ve been behind the bogeyman for a very long time right, we're not challenging our kids. Do the work were not making our kids study harder. We're not. Our kids are not accept school. The gap has not disappeared. All between white and black Americans academically. Our kids are not graduate high school high school at a good rate we're twenty times when I get in prison? Where are families are broken down the all of these problems and we refused to address any of them, which is why I just fine, the black lives matter, Movement you rooted in fraud and and it just a lack of courage, complete cowardice, and I would support that movement in a second. If they were talking about we're, about it. They were talking about London, TAT Cry, but they are talking about abortion. They were talking about father absence. I believe. This is yes. Finally, we are having a real discussion with ourselves, but we won't do it
as you know, the only focus on a specific type of problem. That is the least about problems, so? How is always eat? Oh say this light. So are we going to focus more on the legal force it or the fire, and I catch it? What what do you think is more point? Okay, it could be a problem eventually, you know if we keep letting it maybe you'll become a problem entity with the leaky force. Your bill might go up a little bit. The noise be a a little annoying. But if you ignore that fire so the whole house, so we have stop letting them push. Those narratives, because you're not focusing, The root of the problem. and to me like a we right. Even if you cut the time, we will go right back. You'll have to up route it from the root in order to establish from growing This is why tell me I look at the end of the day. We have to focus on the real situation because it take care of the real situation the police Butas The situation would disappear right. You have upstanding,
citizen exactly. We don't want to get into these complications for black people. You know what I mean is it was like is like what is our problems, father, those lack of education? lack of respect like so. Why don't we a on those things has really distorting alchemy heard. T Argos, there's no black on black crime, I said so. What do you call? Black people kill black people and he wants to say well. White people can wipe the tub, but regardless first of all, we're not talking about white people, so don't add them into mix because they're, not the ones out here screaming and crying and bitching out you you guys are the only ones doing so. We have to talk about your issues because you're forcing us to talk about it, so we got speak on black on black crime because wig each other at an alarming rate way more than if he will kill each other, so Are you telling me there's? No black on black crime. Yeah is white on white crime is black on black is asian or asian crab, we understand
We kill amongst our demographics, but we're doing that such a high level right that you have to talk. While therefore, as I said, that's the fire in the kitchen, so we have to speak on that, because no more you guys crying. Oh they about it and that's a bigger issue. So if you just ignore that issue, ninety five percent by people are killed by it. Why doesn't ignore ninety five percent? More than in those my problem with black last matters like why you doesn't focusing on the things that really gonna prevent, that is because they wanted to continue to happen raise betters this. How to get money like our Shopton Day, not gonna, get At the informal alive black person, they need a dead one. They're got killed by specific circumstance in order for them to receive money, so they have to put their fear. They have to pay I hate. Will they have to talk about the time so they could get new business. Every year every election time. So do not try to save anything.
at all. What are you trying to say why I don't have pro they got billions of dollars, a budget? Why, don't go in good, enables it give twenty million per these bad neighborhood to bid schools or and make sure that have better education, make sure they have you if you guys want to security. Why do you not marching for when a young black men killed by straight bullet that had nothing to do with something? Why did not match that hood every day. Right in that right, but watching up and down every day you think they're gonna shoot shoot. Anybody that's happening because, because can't raise millions you're potentially save Hunt of lives is doing that collecting any. I think. Even would anybody tourism, Are you save one life you could potentially save the world not even looking to save lives. You just want to deal with dead black men and they raise tons of money, and that's also one of the most frustrating elements is the idea. Canvases must be getting paid so well to say what she says. No, no! No, no guys! Look at your community. How much do you They're getting paid to say what they say. This is what you do.
and they're the the ones million of dollars right when George Floor died within forty eight hours black lives matter raised forty million dollars within forty eight hours. Nobody knows what the money and we got fifteen million. We got fifteen separate from the forty million that was raised right. No, how much money I get tongue truth zero I got haters death threats. This is taking money. Who do you think is what we think is cutting rejecting what I always get that right. Who do you think is cutting me a check to tell you the truth about who George Floyd was. Who do you think is? Thank you Candice. Let me I too am I want to make money. I jump on the black lives matter, such as that's the ban is where they're making the highest profit. Martin, you you can have a a black person, a white person, that's responsible and make millions and and never get question of where the money goes. Just appear right spend your millions wait for years, earn the exact same millions again for the exact same scenario, and they don't get that you are accusing the people that are telling me the truth of earning money for telling you the truth and and celebrating,
that are telling you lies that are pocketing millions and stealing it from you. That is my problem with black lives matter and the perception in the media. And the reality is, we should be getting paid me. Is it right for telling the truth right. I wish I could get millions of dollars. Why not, because we're the real black lives matter? Movement. That's why I didn't because I've I did the hashtag, I didn't know. Nobody else said it, but I was pushed the whole or black lives matter, Since I was you yes, I saw people was. I owe you know that Likewise I say yes, we gonna protect all black lives. Don't you make it a specific type of black situations. Let's make it all. You want the police brutality. We add that in there too, but let's look about preventing fathers homes, this prevent these young black men from having abortions, which I believe is a choice thing, but I feel like just having the access makes it more easier for them to even well games are giving them a baby. We gotta stop that we had a stout old,
every situation if a little baby get shot by straight bullet, we supposed to be there Could I too, if we need education we supposed to be there for that too it catches be come around for that one specific situation and is, they get mad when you say that, like for them Even when I say all lives matter? Where does that school black people at the word, all isn't the equation Why you guys mad about that and it be like- taken with my movement, you don't have a move, any movement to take away from other men. Major might. But this message is bs is not real, They keep pushing it, and you really believe this is real. You really believe you walk outside. You just get shot from a cat. People really believe that that's to me like, if you live in that kind of life that we, U Data, free you out. Is the way you live right now as horrible. If you really mean just even pretending that we live in a race to society and like where do you go? You just see black people at it all the time or spare any anyways wordy. Where do you live that that is your?
actual occurs at you. Act like you live in the nineteen forty zero. You ve literally accept media simulation, it's just not not real, never won a racism. My life I mean mean it's just of course, there's gonna be pocket, be pocket of know, oasis somewhere that are hiding out right, but you're calling people, doesn't even race, as you can't even look at a situation for what it is. You know it's ironic you know. I also did a video about the two Karen Karen's in the park called it. You know what I mean like: oh, you need your dog on Alice and you start to a you know harassing her and then she gonna Canaan One and they ruin this woman's life. Real, quick right fire from her job. Dog, taken away all that stuff, and I said I said to my dad imagine there was exacting flip scenario if it was a black woman. poking her dog in the park, not a leash and a white do came up to her assorted filming and said you don't Maybe I'm a leash needs black blocking, when our fire even willing. She can't even walk her dog without white people coming in here. What's more peaceful, she's working group puppy, we just
Don't see it's always about the race and even if you flip the races- and you gave the exact same scenario- you get an opposite response to Black America and to me that's at it's, It is sad that we put. we have a lot of. I can't call the Karen Rec, I think, as some black people have their name camera, but we have people that We can community media worse flight by way, worse, I've seen but usually only paint that one picture because they were? to push that narrative. They want us to think that people don't like us, I've never encountered racism in the funniest thing is like being a hood of like and he was like YO man- wake people, races, I'm like boy. You ain't never hung out with white people. Your whole life you've been stuck in these four corners, your whole life, you never even had an account to away people. You never and hung around way people. How do you know there's somebody I told you. like I've made that mistake in my life to before, and I learned my lesson I said: look check this out. I've heard
negative things about certain people, and I was like I ain't gonna mess with them because of what I heard instead of what I knew lost out on great opportunities. Because of that, so it's like wow would continue to make them same stupid moves because I'll meet that same person that they talk about, and I I see. No doubt you judge organ about like this is this is not true and to me like. This is something that we have to change and if we don't change it. Said it is believe in what people here we at that point now is this. We are something which I believe is what it is whatever situation or what about whenever Percy, then? I'm like you going to ruin so many opportunities in your life with that mentality, you guys never been around no way people going some way it was even for the same way. We have to start combating the media perception with action
experiences, and I want to ask you this as a last question: are you optimistic or pessimistic about the direction that Black America is trending toward I'm kind of in between anyways, because I think especially from conservative movement? I'm seeing a lot of young black people that are like giving us us hope, like man, we can make it happen, but then again you have the overpowering. Of the negative? So it seems like that's only want to push you show, so we gotta come at debt. So when we get where we start, lessening the negatives and start showing more of the positives. Then I'll I'd, be more awesome, optimistic way, move right now, Qana stuck in between this is like is at a point where you know going gonna go so
for me, I'm always after Mr Persson, someone's gonna go. I'm after mystic would change, because we ve been due to worsen. We always overcame, but his like that like you said before is like? Oh, you know you don't sound. It had been a push, you is light delight, not even mess with them any more because they attack EU for but, like say it MA am optimistic some ago, I'm I'm away, go that Mr Santer, sailor snapping. We can ever a man the change is better. People like us continue to do. We do it a very regrettable it was ass. Seen hundreds of thousands of people I hit me allow YO, you changed my library, I like I used to think this tape away now listening to you so I know p, We want to listen to their identity, as we continue to tell the truth whether we gave backlash wording that eventually the truth is going to prevail. You cannot, the truth, it doesn't matter how long the battle is with the lie. The truth is always gonna win. Oh, I love that that's so powerful. I love that.
Well, we wrap every episode with allowing you to leave a face message. For the world. So if you could in two minutes say, thing that you hope would fall on the ears of every single person: I'm not just our community in the larger american community and throughout the world, and you think that it could impact change. What would it be? You're gonna love two minutes, you don't even need to right. Now is one word right, well hold on I'm going to introduce you on your markets, world, I give you king, face unity, learn to work together as a people? There's nothing has been established, at the end of the day when you wanna talk about why people, but in our pass, if it wasn't for why people we will now we free because we had to have a large, among the way people say I dont- want to see black and will be truly animals in order. First, because if we live in a world where we go about this, It is with seventy percent. Why people and you have forty say black people if they did vote and
Seventy percent was or white we're done, it will still be slavery which unites us working together. Is what the dreaded and that's why they try to separate us with this whole reasoning. We have to be united this is the United States of America, you have to be united as a people, because we're not this white, black and the other culture with human beings. and the only way we can change things is being united. Is unity and unity is the key without unity, nothing happens if we keep bridging and adding more gas. Into entire lives, is gonna, cause more conflict and is actually going to actually create create more racism. So, Just continue being unity, stop worrying about will? A merry, too, is irrelevant start worrying about this. that, don't matter, we always focus anything that don't matter instead of folks in a way does matter and that unity and working together so anyway, we're gonna have change, amen, that's a wrap!
