                    Is the dude in Arkansas his real dad cuz I thought his dad left him but I guess they somewhat figured things out later. But if somebody can clarify that’d be great

                                                      I wish more people saw this. Its a shame good things that uplift and shine the light on real life, everyday issues, don't get more coverage or popularity.

                                                                  Father passed away slowly and painfully from stage 5 brain cancer.

If everything has a purpose then why is it taking so long. Or maybe I’ve found the light from the cave and my depression has made it seem grey and dark.
                                                                  I’ll figure it out eventually but people like that grandma really surprise me and I respect her with everything.

Four your eyes do you understand I can say I understand. the problems facing low income communities. Issues blacks and minorities have been up against many obstacles since we touched the soil wherever country we fled from or were forced to leave by terrible circumstances and forced to come here (slavery) like pac said and j Cole many others we need change from government reform to draining the swamp to rights for felons to police force restructuring to minorities having more opportunities for child support forgiveness and criminal history removal to name clearing for marijuana crimes and giving all states the right to smoke what they want as long as not control substances to community programs and rebuilding all the rundown basketball parks and I could go on forever last one making effort to fix all the school books right away and tell the truth to the kids and last of all parents stop preaching hate in your homes tell your kids to love respect appreciate not player hate respect everybody culture and race

                                                                                    It means I am because you are, one of the most important themes in the human story, as you can find the concept in many cultures through time

                                                                                    Capitalism says "its not in the benevolence of the baker that we get our bread, but in his selfish pursuit of profit"
                                                                                    This is a very grim assumption about human nature, that humans can only be selfish.
                                                                                    Ubuntu is not even about altruism btw, its about "playing it forward", its not about an exchange between two ppl but a network/ node. Knowing that you exist because of others, and knowing that you can make a difference not because you altruistic angel but because you recognise humanity itself as value, you honour the humanity in orders because somebody else has done the same to you, from your existene
