I often wonder why many things don't go viral. An activist by the name of Danette Chavis has been trying to spread the word for many years, but up until recently has had minimal exposure. Then she did a video and that's where I discovered her, and how she received a whopping 34,000 signatures on her petition  in the span of a few short months. /I guess the key is to make a video. Reading has become a rare talent.

Your article breaks down the fundamental issues that every black person faces, and simplifies it. Eloquent. I found number 3 to resonate because when trying to support each other to increase our power, theres an unspoken competition that almost paralyzes our progress. The crab in a barrel metaphor. And to point out how new our freedom is... I look for a leader daily, one who brings about SYSTEMATIC change, because our plight didn't happen over night. Men like Jay Z who have the power to keep an audience glued to his EVERY word can say what you say and have the people in meetings over night. So I commend you for spreading the word. And I will share for it needs to be heard.

Thankyou for the deep words Mr. Hudlin!

Greetings Mr. Hudlin,

I follow you on FaceBook and you post a lot of interesting posts about our government, economy, and factoids about the system. I was curious. You worked for BET right? How do you feel about the state of the music?
I have 2 children, both whom I homeschool. And I LOVE hip hop, the beats are hypnotic. But man, I cannot listen to the radio anymore because every other word is about sex, drugs, and guns. What happened to innuendo? And why is this stuff so rampant? Arent there people at the top who see whats wrong? I'm not asking you to divulge anything specific or to point fingers. My questions basically see this right?

Thank-you! I reread the post and realized it yesterday, but figured my foot tasted good in my mouth.
Lol. I still stand by my words, but of course they are now aimed elsewhere.

Mr. Hudlin,

You say the real rock stars today are bankers. I concur. However, have you thought about the fact that many rock stars were addicted to drugs, flying day by day with their every desire met, yet still susceptible to good ol' suicide?

The bankers are pulling at strings. Money, our currency atleast, is based on debt, and backed by the Federal Reserve. Every note that touches the fingers of an American, has ten times its value in debt attached to it. It's already owed to some one else. Decades ago, shoot, even A decade ago, it would have been ok, because you just get people to work. Labor = money. Problem solved. More people work, and work harder, the more money they make, the more they pay back the "debt", the more the banks make. But now people cant pay back the banks. And now these bankers are sniffing lines of money, trying to get back that first high, f*cking a new groupy of quick profit every night, but still feeling empty. And it's because of automation.

What happened to the elevator man? Behold, automation.
What happened to toll booth guys? Behold, automation.
My father had a thriving business as a negative cutter, and then BOOM, overnight, his career was eviscerated by 2K and digital film.
And it will continue to happen. The checkout line at the super market will be replaced with self checkout. Even lawyers are struggling as they are competing with legal zoom, and accountants are competing against turbo tax.

The banks, who tried to increase their bottom line, invested in automation. Hey, why pay employees, when a machine can do the job?
Now, as more and more people are unemployed, or underemployed, banks are pulling at strings, lobbying for this politician, who in turn will create some ridiculous law for his cohort. For example in NY they just changed the speed limit to 25 mph. Come on, who in the? Someones cashing out big on the abundance of tickets about to be yielded.

In the end, mass depopulation will occur, from the oil spills, from the chemicals, from the lack of water, or another more hopeful event will occur. I believe that will be a resource based economy.

I won't get into what a resource based economy is. I'll just say that it is inevitable. And the "Rockstar" of the story, will OD, being his own worst enemy. 3d printers are open source. Why buy when you can print your own? From plastic, nonetheless. No matter how rich a man, he is still dependent on the people. Worst case scenario, the pyramid will crumble, and the remaining survivors will create a society, where abundance is automated, not labored.

But that's just my opinion. In the meanwhile, you are terribly right. People are playing musical chairs, left out, while the winner already had his name painted on the seat. And the truth is too hard to swallow.

Hi Mr. Hudlin,

Growing up my mother always called us bebe kids. She was a single and young mother of 3 and we gave her a run for her money. I even remember her posing us in front of a video camera and having us recite "we don't die, we multiply,". My question is, do you find that Bebe kids is what people know and relate to you? I was surprised at how many people had never heard of Bebe kids, and i'm under the impression that it falls under the category of "black culture". For me, Bebe Kids is a nostalgic term, and defines a part of my childhood. It's a shame that even doing searches for images, brings back pixelated images captured from old vhs tapes. Now we have Family Guy and The Cleveland Show, and in my opinion, that's all satire. Bebe's kids was real life in cartoon form. I think it should be more of a cult classic then it is. Do people walk up to you and say "hey the bebe kids guy?" Or has that artistic expression of your past been buried by your other accomplishments?
