    As a product of some of NY’s finest private schools, Jay is a constant reminder of why the public school system in this country is an egregiously failed experiment that is borderline criminal in its neglect.

    Integration was never the answer – it was always about equality. Equality would have given him an opportunity to probably be more than he is now…but then its the trials & tribulations of Marcy that made him Jigga – damned if you do & damned if you don’t.

    Thanks for the share.

    Jigsaw I don’t get your point.

    It’s common sense what Jay is saying, but then “sense,” I guess, isn’t always “common.” The points are concise, make sense and are not full of cumbersome pyscho-jargon!!! Thanks

    Had a dream last night that I was at my own wake looking down at my own face
    I looked asleep but not at peace
    Aggrieved and not at all relieved
    Do I blame it on the streets or my constant war with the Beast
    Or was it simply all on ME for not pursuing all that I could perceive, while I could still breathe
    It seems my whole life was consumed with running from what I assumed was ANOTHER nigga chasing me
    But in the e-n-d, as I stood there looking down at myself, it appears that the most unrelenting “enemy”
    Was me

    What’s holding you back?!?
