I mean why aren't there any programs where black young brothas get LIFTED UP!!! I mean black girls already know they rock, SHIT THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS BASICALLY A MATRIARCHAL SOCIETY, we basically under their rule in the community so they alright. It's the young black boys that need to lifted up and encouraged , we the ones that came from the "Black Girls Rock" single parent home and end up in the damn street killing each other.We the ones that need to be uplifted!!

Sista tori, beautiful ,queen,

Sista tori, beautiful ,queen, goddess, why you always go hard on me :( lol. I never spew any hatred towards black women at all. The thing im saying here is that black men are told , we dead beats, we good for nothing, we uneducated, stupid, downlow, gay, weak, jailbate I MEAN WE HAVE "BLACK WOMEN AKA BLACK GIRLS ROCK" saying this on Msnbc live!!! Nobody says "black men are under attack, nobody asks themselves how would this play on the phyche of young black males" i mean we out here playing sheep get ate by the lion, nobody cares for us!!But the black girls who is catered too by the system gets tv shows, get awards, gets told "hey you better than those lowly negros in the community, you twice as educated, come to our show and talk about it"soo black women/girls are good if you ask me!!Only reason for a black girls rock in my opinion is because of the problems they have with self image!!Me telling black women you need to stop messing with these clown ass negros is not BS , im trying to save them from they demise, GODDAMNIT I SHOULD BE THANKED FOR THE WORK I PUT IN DAILY FOR THE COMMUNITY.

I don't mean to go hard on

I don't mean to go hard on you but to be HONEST when you get a group of successful BLACK men together and AWARD them for their accomplishments, you have MOFO's shootin up the parking lot *cough* 2012 HIP HOP AWARDS *cough*!!

Those aren't successful black

Those aren't successful black men, they just niggas with money. You see this is why i say we need something like a "Black Boys Rock" because of what you just said. When you think of successful black woman you think "Oprah" , when you think successful black men, you nigga 50 cent and niggas shooting each other at a damn hiphop award show!!This is why i say black women got it good why the hell they need a black girls rock. Its the young black boys that need something they can look at and be happy about, they need real successful men showing them the way on tv. And don't bring up the fathers saying that's their job because they momma didn't choose a father in the first place.

Most "SUCCESSFUL BLACK MEN"

Most "SUCCESSFUL BLACK MEN" try to distance themselves from the Black Community as a whole because of the shenanigans of "N*GGAS WITH MONEY" so don't look for a "BLACK BOYS ROCK" anytime soon!
