Don't Lie To The Babies.
Congratulations Barack Hussein Obama II but we all can't be president. As a parent I will not give my son false hope about anything especially about life. Do not I repeat DO NOT let me speak at any ones graduation on any level because I will tell them straight up...1 out of every 3 of y'all lil niccas will not graduate from High School and 1 out of the other 2 won't go to college. You all won't be doctors, lawyers, accountants, astronauts, entrepreneurs or PRESIDENTS. Tell them that they will ruin they're credit early, get or get someone pregnant, won't get approved for a scholarship and get mixed up in the wrong crowd ( which is the 1 who didn't graduate from high school and the other one who didn't go to college). My homie Good Life went to High School in Edison, N.J. via Manhattan Center and he can vouch for what I'm saying. I got a chance to visit his school and go with him to every class which was pretty regular and I found out they teach classes on how to buy a car, how to buy a house, understanding your credit, etc. and it blew my mind. Why aren't those things important in urban communities? we got enough liquor stores though. Luckily for me I didn't leave my education up to the Board of Education I went out and obtained information on my own and even though I was drinking at fifteen and having sex and all that I was one of the few kids who was smart enough to know that's not what life was about and music or movies won't influence me because I know it's just entertainment. Hopefully my son will know this and I will do everything in my power to inform him as honest but tactful as possible. My son name is Brooklyn and I am the Dream.
