Has anyone else seen this peice of shit?

MTV and Puff Daddy put a group of kids who want to be rappers in a beautiful house in New York, including a recording studio, and each of them get a good amount of cash, plus a record deal.

I want to shoot all of these little fucking pricks in the face - every last one of them shows absolutely zero gratitude for their situation and they all act like primadonna stars.

Reality TV is just too much made up reality anymore. Bring back StarTrek. I want stories, plot lines, and good actors, not more "real people" doing "real stuff" on TV.

That one guy I forgot his name is braggin on national TV that he got another record deal in the works.

Black people for you give um a inch they take a foot. That is why affirmative action should be taken out because of incidents like this.

I also agree with Aegien on the fact that they should be shot.

Vigil, "black people" want to get ahead just like the "white people" and the "yellow people" and the "red people." What 's wrong with being ambitious? Remember, Frank Sinatra was just another "wop" once upon a time.

I feel that people are objecting to this because these guys are black -- I thought we might have moved beyond blatant racism by now. =(

If you saw the first season Aeg you would understand that P-Diddy HATES those kids. He told MTV he thinks they suck and he never thinks they are going to make it big. I personally don't watch the show, but I watched the MTV news version of it that tells the story from start to present.

Puff just hopes they get at least one song hit to pay for his time he feels they have wasted.

Yep, so does everyone.

But we don't go into someone elses house and fight between the each of us, theres like what 7 of them? and only 1 hasnt gotten in a fight or broken something not theres.

There what give "black people" the bad names that were mentioned in this thread.

They seem to have 0 respect for anyone or anything, they wanted it all handed to them on a silver plater, In GA there the ones who bring the white people the silver plater.

:edit: I'm talking about the kids on "Making the Band".

I am far from racist and to be honest that is whats wrong with this country today.

When somone says somthing about Asians, Hispanics, Jews, or African-Americans its racist, but when they do somthing towards Christian Cacasians its ok. This is another topic we can discuss later because I want to get back to original point.

Black people are lazy bottom line...dont give me the excuse of "they live in the ghetto" because Mexicans also live in poverty(hell I am broke ass motherfucker also), but their hard working people. Blacks just want the ez way to the top because they think that white people have it that way, but bottom line is that if you are a dumbfuck white guy you have no future reguardless of college education or not.

Instead of them spending extra money to wear designer labels, drive fancy cars, and get "dubs" they can put themselves through school like most of the people I know.

Another thing that pisses me off is the whole Rockfella drug law issue. Black Rappers are fighting to reduce the prison sentence because they feel that its because of these laws that African-Americans have the most prison population.

Its stuff like this that make think the way I do. Instead of P-Diddy, Russel Simmons, and etc...getting together and doing somthing positive for their community like improving schools they are just giving their race more excuses to commit crimes.

Anyways I am not a racist :)

Have you ever accepted the fact that people will act differently in front of a camera then they would IRL? If you think these guys have a fucking bar-room brawl at their RL home every night, then you'd probably be shocked that its probably not the case.

Look at the whole "image" of being a rapper thats ingrained in alot of kid's minds: I'm a tough mother fucker, so dont fuck with me. They're ACTING like how they feel they are being expected to act. Every fight they win in front of a camera "validates" this image they have.

It's no different then if you went to the early 80s, did this same thing with white kids, then were suddenly shocked to find out all they're trying to do is bang roadies and get high 24/7.

Lots of young people only understand the image they are presented with. They see scores of no-talent music stars being thrown at them. They REALIZE alot of these people have no talent. But they notice the image. Thus they equate image with success. Especially an image that MILLIONS are seeing. The sad thing is, they arent that far off from the truth half the time.

Heh.. by "red people" I suppose you mean the American Indians. Have you seen the majority of their ambition? Sit on land. Get check. Blow check on booze.

Disclaimer: This is not a slam on American Indians, as I am fractionally one myself. Just what I've seen on every reservation I've ever been to.

Yeah, I agree with you Cybsled, but when is it going to stop? I dont think P-Diddy, JZ, and etc...are going to tell the kids the truth about how life really.

Or they are going to grow up, realize it was all bullshit, start struggling, and will begin to call you up every other say asking for grocery money, or money for a sack of weed.

Or Some of them will just realize its bullshit from early on, and that its just a video. And go out and get a real job. Take care of their family, and not have a problem in the world.


Oh well, thats life. If you believe that the club-lifestyle/gangsta shit, you are going to derserve whats coming to ya.

Are you kidding? Who own the majority of the casinos in this country now? Native Americans. And they pay no taxes. The biggest casino in the world is in New York State, owned by the Oniedas, I believe. My husband's cousins harangued me for an hour at my brother in laws wedding last week about how the Indians were taking over everything and how pissed they were (they are from New York state). The argument was that so what if they signed a treaty for the land that later got taken away, that was their problem, they should just go back to the rez and shut up. But they didn't, they made the government honor the treaty.

Indians may have been lazy on the rez, but they have figured out now how to bring in the dollars, at least on the East coast. Same in Wisconsin, where there are a ton of tribal casinos.

Oh yeah, and when they were done with the Indians they launched into how the Indians were encouraging the blacks to sue for slaves rights and get money from the government.

I sometimes wonder which is worse? To exterminate more Native Americans than Hitler killed Jews, or to build the most powerful country in the world by enslaving an entire race? African Americans are definately still around en masse, but they (for the most part) have bought into the system that once enslaved them by making millions of dollars, flossing, perpetrating, and sometimes frontin' (no i'm not including poor people, who of any demographic, basically don't get involved in the systems of control other than to fill the gutters).

At least Native Americans (for the most part) still have sight of the fact that the USA's way of life, is basically only in existance to create power, control, and dominance for the government. Yeah we have to pay an arm and a dick for Health Care, College, Insurance etc...not to mention once you DO get some money, you can spend it on shit people tell you that you need, or is cool. Rinse, repeat, die; the closest to perfection that any system of control has ever come.

If old-timey Native Americans want to enjoy life in their own way, I'm not gonna call them useless and stupid just because they don't buy into the bullshit we've created as our world here. Our way is not the only way to live, although keeping sight of that fact is becoming increasingly difficult.

Having almost complete genocide committed upon your race (not just slavery) probably doesn't promote much motivation.
