for some reason i don't think any of celebrities really care about poverty except russell simmons, terrence howard, ellen and kirsten dunst. Everybody else just looks like they came out for the publicity

As long as they are giving money, who cares? Get a life and stop trying to find fault in people. You spectators make me sick. Do your part, don't worry about everyone else.

The reality is they do. It is going to take years to change that and at the rate we are going it is going to take centuries. You are probably one of the people that thought the Three-Six moment was a step up in history for black people. Whether it is on the surface or not, people are being helped. So I don't give a damn if their hearts are in it. They don't HAVE to give and they are not going to lose their fan base if they don't. Instead of focusing on those that do give let's try to recruit those that don't.

^You are obviously charity-focused; it would be nice to see someone like you volunteer in some of the communities and environments of the type where 3-6 are from. That way they can be taught how to assimilate themselves into white society, kiss ass when the situation calls for it, and most importantly, how to "act right" in front of white people. If they work real hard maybe one day they might even be worthy of being included as part of the black community. Until then though, let's not let white people know that there are pimps, drug dealers or whores in the black community! And by all means--don't make a movie or a song about it because then all the white people will know that it does exist and since rich white people rule the universe we'll be too afraid to tell a white person that it's ignorant for anyone to think a movie or song represents an entire race. But then again, anyone we would have to explain that to would be too ignorant to understand that anyway.

It's more important to learn to use correct grammar and conduct yourself for your own benefit, not for the likes of others. I do volunteer in my community, I don't own my own company like you, from what I read in another post, but I do take children from my neighborhood to church. I do give oral interpretation classes on weekends at the community center in my neighborhood, I am in the big brother big sister program, and I do go to high schools to speak to students and encourage them that they are capable of going to college and succeed in life. I do put together holiday baskets of food and clothing for needy families. I do serve meals to homeless people out of my own pocket. I have said all of that to say that I am a person that is knowledgeable about what is going on in my community and I am doing something about it. Black people are not the ones that think a movie or a song represents and entire race, but we are forced to sit back and accept the criticism and remarks from those that do that are in a position of power. Maybe you can send me the address to your website so that I can apply on-line and work for you so that I won't have to answer to "Whitey" But on second thought, your on here all day so you must not be getting much business.

DAMN! Ya'll are getting heated in here. Anon 5:53 is on fire. It's nothing else to be said. Whew!





Nee

said...

LMAO @ Anon 5:53--got kinda heated in here, huh? Actually, I have enough business that I CAN be on here all day if I choose--I have people that work FOR me and being the boss DOES have it's perks! I don't take applications--I take resumes--but you couldn't work for me anyway because you're too judgmental of others. I work with the public and have seen people arrive to meetings in BMW's, Prada'd down and blinging like nobody's business with NO MONEY. Then I've seen the bummiest-looking person in the world take a bus to my office and have a six or seven figure bank account. You never know how intelligent someone is by the way they dress, talk or the environment they come from and I can't have you running away my clients with your holier-than-thou attitude if they walk in with gold-teeth speaking slang. That being said, I doubt if you do any of the things you were ranting on about because if you did you would have first hand knowledge and understanding of the type of environment people like 3-6 come from and they wouldn't be such an abomination and disgrace to you. In any event, keep "volunteering"--I just hope you don't look down on those that you're supposed to be helping like you look down on this rap group.

^NO THAT'S ENOUGH SAID!!!! I GET SO TIRED OF PEOPLE ALWAYS PUTTING SOMEBODY DOWN AND THEN HAVING THE NERVE TO CALL THEMSELF A CHRISTIAN.

Anon 5:53 was giving a good argument until all that volunteer stuff. I agree with nee about that. Working with people that act ghetto as hell and such a good Christian but still talking shit about them because of how they act.

^You're a stupid bitch. I wrote the comment at 11:43 and I'm not nee. You're probably Anon 5:53 and mad because you contradicted yourself.

^ is a dead give away. Nee always does that and you are the stupid bitch whoever you are.





Nee

said...

DAYUM!! It seems like there is always a TRUE hater on here when I give my opinion and someone agrees. I ALWAYS POST MY NAME--I have no reason not to! As for Anon 11:45--good luck with your resume because even if I gave you my web site and you actually took time out of your day to go there and read about my company and my qualifications you still wouldn't believe me. But more importantly, I'm not going to subject my employees to culling through crazy submissions from people that don't like what I have to say just to prove something to an anonymous person...LOL...Oh NO-an anonymous person on the internet doesn't believe me--let me proove it-- ummm, YEAH...But you know--I love my black people so I will give you a fax number where you can send it if you're really interested-I ain't mad at ya...





Nee

said...

And OMG--will you anon people PLEASE get a blog name or something so these people can stop saying I'm a schizo that's talking about myself in the 3rd person...LMAO...

said...

Haters are a trip. I post on here all the time as anonymous and I use "^" too so I guess I better give nee her money since apparently she has the patent on it.

Your fingers should really be hurting with all that typing, and running a business. What a multi-tasker. Your good!!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^(my signature sign)-Actually it doesn't take that long to type--it's not brain surgery--but thank you SO much for your concern...LOL...

Your such a loser. I'll insult you when I return from my next class.

I might be a loser but you're still thinking about me and what you're going to say to me after you get out of class..LMAO!!

Nee, you sound like you'll be waiting for it. Why give her the pleasure of responding.





Anonymous

said...

Yeah nee. Don't even respond to shit like that. You made some good points and people got mad. Then they got you talking to yourself when some people agreed. I don't always agree with you and I don't agree with you now (about the Oscar)but I come here a lot and you do always put your name even when you know your gonna get it.

said...

This does look kinda fishy.....hmmmmmm.





Nee

said...

Giselle--that's the most intelligent thing I've read all day and I'm going to take your advice. Someone told me one time that arguing on the Internet is like being in the Special Olympics--even if you win you're still retarded. Now I see their point. I hope Trinity has a good time bashing me but it is such a shame she's going to waste so much time on a loser...LOL...

There is some serious stalking going on here. Anon talking about nee always does "^". Are you watching THAT close? You're probably the one doing it to discredit her. Scary.





Anonymous

said...

^And I'm not Nee!! What looks fishy is the comment calling someone a stupid bitch and then right below is the person saying that ^ is a dead give away that its Nee. Sounds like a stalking hater to me.
