    I bet everything this woman has said to these young men their mother and older family members have said to him a million times, and he never heard it.
    But that "good" white woman tell them the same thing and know you hear it, oh SHE got your best interest art heart.
    Black men Will praise white women like gods.
    But Will sell out, call black women hoes and bitches. And the black women reached down And pick him up, protest for him, and financially take care of him. And the black woman is still his enemy.
    This young man is lost and yet these Black men are sitting hear not even schooling him on this white womans history, just laughing at him instead of schooling him.
    I'm sad for black men.
    This is my opinion.
    You want to change it, prove me wrong. I bet black men comments prove me right.
    I'll be 👀.

        I don't see why this was a big deal. It was clear at the beginning of this controversy that dude was saying that in Chicago at that time, dreads were associated with gang life in the hood, I.e. If you were a young nigga and had dreads, in most cases it symbolized that you were about that action. In a attempt to get his life straight, he chose to cut his hair as a symbol of all change. His comments were not an indictment of all people with dreads lol.

              When I read the comments it's mindblowing after all of the work Jay Z has done in the community how quickly so many would throw all that away and turn on him without allowing him the opportunity to manifest his vision and how it may help the community. Last but not least don't sleep on the media's decisive narrative Jaz Z sells out. Did Jay Z betray Kap ect. All negative nothing even optimistic. Don't fall into there trick bag if Jay falls short we should condem him but let's at least see where this goes.

                      This is White Infiltration, Indoctrination , and Informancy. With the teaching of Self Black Hate, at iis Fullest. And its is some Sick S**t.

                      And to ALL of those..Making excuses for this bs. Im calling you ALL , sick Mfers. Every last one of you. Even you commrnters cheering this bs.

                      This is another case of Black Parents and willfully ignorant Tap Dancin A** Black.ppl. Wanting another Floyd Mayweather or Tyson. SO BAD.. To come out of this RW, FBI ran Indoctrination & Informant, Ctr. Thats its worth. Selling the Souls of young black.ppl. Teaching them that their life is somehow NOT, in as much DANGER, because White Boy Rob, can be killed just as quick too. WTF kind of brainwashing are ppl from OUR COMMUNITY, Hot 97 and ypu Tap Dancin clowns in these comments. Helping these Mfers to promote in our Community? Cause thats what yawll are doing. Telling White ppl its okay to come INFILTRATE, our communities. Beacause a bunch a TAP DANCIN A** Black Folks. Like it!

                      So when Floyd Mayweatger gave our community the Fn Finger. By making sure we saw him KISSIN GUCCI's A** Im gonna assume that all you Tap Dancin A** Black Folks. Had no problem. With him doing that. So it must be your thing. To kiss White ppls A**. And the A**es of the ppl from our Community. Who kiss they A**es.

                      And I love our Kids. But this. young man. Is LOST. And already Indoctrinated And the Grown ups around him. Are. Fn Despicable in my eyes. I went to bat with EVERY White Teacher or Authority figure. That came at my son sideways. And I always told my son. Adults , would be given the benefit of the doubt. Until I got the WHOLE STORY, with both of them in my .presence. And every single time. My son was proven to be right. And I had his back EVERYTIME. You wasnt Effin with my black child. Nor were you going to WARP, his mindset.

                      And this womans HISTORY. Woulda been VETTED. Before I sent my child. Anywhere near this MFER or anybody associated with her. Regardless of them being black either. They really would get cussed out WORSE.. For capiin for her A**. And allowing her to POLLUTE our Childrens Fn minds.

                        Sally helped saved a lot of black young men from going the wrong path. Yet most of you black people care about is some damn hair. Shot 14 times and survived. Not many black men can say that. I'm happy for Kobe still here living a better life. Really so disappointed in my black people. Care more about some damn hair style instead of these black men lives.

                                        I’m not gonna lie my first impression is to think this kid is SLOW. But Chicago’s inner city is intense and he is a product of his environment. Prayers to him. This kid got his dread for ALL Wrong reasons so it’s only right he cuts them off and grow them back when he understands why we grow our hair out.

He's embarrassing and dont need to wear them anyway, so good he cut them off, because he is ignorant about them and shouldn't be wearing them in the first place

                                              @blakefeeldz1 just because a group of people decide to stick something in their head does not change the original meaning of it. If these brainwashed AAs believe everything about being Black is "bad" then they will undoubtedly associate everything that is with it as something "bad," but that doesn't make it true nor so. This is why they should NOT wear them at all because they have disassociated the meaning and original context of its use due to ignorance and unfamiliarity. In other words, it is another form of appropriation.

                                                    @ 15:30 The information isn't hard to obtain. Yes, ALL colors/creeds of people get shot by police. It's just that only incidents with black victims get publicized into international news stories. Almost every day a white man is shot by police. If DANIEL SHAVERS was a black man, everybody would know his name.... instead his egregious execution (at the hands of a cop who walked despite video evidence) flies under the radar. All lives matter!

Don't tell me locks are intimidating. If you're intimidated then you need to work out those racial/prejudice issues you have going on in your mind. 💯

                                                            With this in mind, will you judge me because of the texture of my hair? Because that is what happened here. If his hair texture was straighter then perhaps he would have not been perceive as a threat. And therein lies the problem, my hair texture had been deemed a problem. And that is a problem!

If We(Black People) took care of our people / family this guy wouldn't have went to Sally for a haircut. The real question is where was any of our people during this time? . It seems too much of the blame is pointed in the wrong direction. Listening to Kobe makes me think his entire circle failed him and people wonder why there's so many deaths in Chicago?

                                                          The Crusher's club sounds like a recreation center. In addition, the club is teaching kids to box and plant which could be recreationally therapeutic, but are they being educated on using these tools outside of the club to maybe bring positive changes to their community, or even establishing a career of their own from what they've learned? I would like to hear the success stories of people who have actually gone through the program and is now a progressive independent adult, because I'm really not buying this BS. This interview was extremely watered down.

I understand that this program is mandatory for the men who have gotten into trouble. So they are forced to go there. Do they have therapists there? After they leave there, then what? Will they have a job? A trade? It was sickening to watch that young man praise this woman. I hope when he is done with that program, he is able to do more then just fish, plant flowers, and hang out with cops. If not, he could end up right back where he started.

It's not dreads that the police target it's black/brown skin. Rich white folks helping out vulnerable innercity youth- Penn State anyone? Everyone but Jay Z coming out of the woodwork to explain away this devilish action. The capitive will be led to captivity. Even my societal conditioning has been conditioned. I'm more than positive that there are many AfricanAmerican foundations in Chicago that could have used this money than an All Lives Matter Police charity.

OK he's 19, Ok.. they teach them boxing, OK... they cook with them and they take them fishing ..OK.., they cut off locks... OOOOK ... what’s missing? Oh yeah.. A GOT DAM JOB!!!! working at a flower farm many be good while your in the program but how many flower farms are in the urban community. Here’s a better one, How many black people do you see working in flower shops. Here’s a thought, What about prepping them to take the GED/AHD or learning to write a resume and dress for an interview or using proper FN diction. What about budgeting/money management. So now the new model is that we need white women to raise black men…? What the Hell is happening at Hot 97, Ebro if you guys keep putting it all on the line to cover Jay Z, Ebro in the morning will quickly become the new FOX NEWS!!!

The issue that most have with THIS program is it's racist stigma and rejection of cultural and in some cases rejection of religious inclusivness. Because their currently fashionable populaity, many forget that locks are a a very relevent aspect of Rastafarianism. Lock are associated with the Nazarite vow and associated with Samson, the strongest man in the Bible. Yet programs like the boys and girls club offers both and has done it for year without promoting such cultural offensiveness. Take a look at the famous diverse Alumni of The Boy's & Girl's Club. No one program is perfect but you can't argue with their Proven track record of affectiveness. Why not give them the money?

You act like someone is arguing against the importance of education, no the argument is that there are other things as important as education. Being a functioning, civil, and disciplined kid in an school environment is critical to actually learning anything while at school. If throwing books at these kids were the answer they wouldn’t need to come there.

                                                                      • Siammarcus

                                                                        I understand you point clearly. Still at the end of the day what is our goal for these valued youth that have deviated for their intended course? Is it to plot an alternate course of sight-seeing of sunshine and rainbows? No!!, It’s to get them back on track... It to motivate them to completing their education goals, securing exceptional employment and become respectable self-sufficient, productive member of society, right? OK let talk FACTS: According to the 2018 US. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is roughly a $270 DIFFERENTIAL between the salary of the African American Male in comparison to everyone else or every other race. The only group that is payed less than the African American Male... is the African American Female. Again, let’s talk FACTS: According to the New York Times article “The $15 Minimum Wage Is here. Why we need $33 an Hour.” Congress is trying to raise the minimum wage to $15.00 by the end of this year. Yet according to this secret recession that the Gerrymander-er and Thief (Trump) has placed us in, the average family will need twice that, plus three more dollars to survive. Again, I get your point, but please DON'T MISS THE FOREST FOR THE TREE'S!!! Yet I must say, that I do agree with your last statement. Your are right as it relates to your club, …they shouldn’t have to solve everything... but they should address the most relevant thing that currently plagues our community …and that thing is education. But if you don’t think that education is most relevant thing as it relates to our people/community, then please tell me, what the hell is...

My point however was not that boxing or gardening is the it all be all in solving underserved youth in Chicago. My point is why does this organization need to have a job placement program to be impactful? There are hundreds of ways to make an impact and this is what this org choose. Maybe the best way to connect to these youth in that community isn’t a job skill but a constructive outlet for aggression. This organization doesn’t have to solve everything to mean everything to those involved.

Dreads are cultural for black americans in general, but also VERY related to gang affiliation in Chicago's South and West Side. Even more so when you are aged 14 - 25. If you aren't aware of this you are speaking WELL out of turn. This young man is trying to change the trajectory of his life. Guess what, HE wanted to cut his hair and sorry it had to be the white lady. The white lady that has been guiding and showing this young mind love Mon - Fri for how knows how long? My god...I lived in Chicago and guess what, these communities need ANYONE who is willing and brave enough to help.

That's an impossible task to complete! Let every gang member on the South and Westside cut their hair into high top fades and watch those be stereotyped within 2-3 years. It's not what's on your head, it's what's in it.

Also...all these comments about this young man's metal ability is absolutely disgusting. Again WHAT HAVE YOU GUYS DONE FOR CHICAGO"S KIDS??? Bunch of keyboard warriors all up in social media and not actually doin a damn thing. My friend is white and assistant principle in Austin (you from CHI you know the area) ...sooooo should she not be up in there helping the kids? Let me tell you something jack, not ONE of her kids was ever questioning her whiteness when she was genuinely trying her best and they could tell. LASTLY (since I lived in Chicago for 11 years) - my god you really don't know how desperate and dangerous it is out there and how much it effects these young kids. I can't imagine the PTSD all these kids have - they ALL have had friends killed by gun violence.
