Stupidity | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/7/12
Stupidity-your life is what you make of it! If you sit your lazy ass around and complain about how everyone is holding you back of course you will never have a job. Look at all the Hispanic people that have came to this country with nothing, no benefits, no welfare, not even a home and have done something with their life and succeeded. Look at working man white America-no welfare, no gov. support for college, no minority benefits-all because of what happened a century ago. The working man pays for this bullshit. "white man is the minority" Shut the fuck up and go get a job it does not matter what color you are just work hard and it will be noticed. Don't give up, work hard and you will be rewarded for your efforts.

To whoever wrote "Tupac Knew | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/13/09" that was some tight rapping now bullshit no crapping i'm clapping at the same time i'm crying because lying we continue like this everybody dying. I'm sighing because I said it all before we must feed the fucking poor. We let it get too bad we all gonna end up sad. Rapping aint a fad it's something we mother fuckers do instead of shooting people and getting mad. Tupac today I sent your letter to the President but dont expect no answer there aint no precedent for President's responding to citizens... So until The President does we ride some outlaw shit never quit to spit the shit that rips and evokes an emotional fit cuz i'm ready to blasting people away for a meal a day. AINT NO WAY MOTHER FUCKERS CAN BE SITTING WITH BILLIONS IN THE BANK WHEN I GOT BILLIONS WHO WOULD OFFER GOD THANKS FOR A BOWL OF RICE. NAH NAH NAH THAT SHIT AINT NICE. I SAY IT THRICE FEED THE HUNGRY FEED THE HUNGRY FEED THE HUNGRY. CUZ IF YOU DON'T THEN WHAT THE FUCK IS IT ALL FOR? IF YOU DON'T I'M HEADING FOR THE DOOR...

time to wake up enternally | Reviewer: I'm the poor majority | 9/25/11
This song speaks to the reality that young, poor, hopeless kids and youth feel. These kids aren't stupid. They can see that capitalism dosen't give a Fuck about them. The only use is through capitalistic drug dealing, in which case they make great scapegoats. This hopelessness helps create more hopelessness and that's why most don't care. They see what happens to the ones who speak up against this modern day engineered slavery. We have become slaves to consumption. But we can change this really easily. Don't be afraid to speak up. They can silence me but they can't silence us all.

Tupac Knew | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/13/09
Our government can't feed the poor//
Too busy promotin war//
The government is a bloated whore//
Straight from Babylon, they conceive this notion//
Watch the world burn and bodies float in a blood ocean//
Elitists, consider themselves chosen//
Above the rest of human "filth"//
Politickin and honin skills//
Bent on manipulation of the masses//
Welfare state, cradle to grave, kissin they asses//
Blastin, off startin wars with foreign lands//
Usin the people money to fund shit like the Taliban//
All hands, in the White House are stained red//
Innocent men sent to early graves or lyin on they death beds//
I know it's all been said, but we have been led//
To believe that the FED has the interests of the people close to heart//
But they've stabbed it in the back so many times, even CPR won't give that shit a start//
This song, along with your comments, inspired me to write that.

The "40 acres and a mule" part is a literal reference. 40 acres and a mule is what was promised to every african american slave after they were freed at the end of the civil war. He is saying that "we were promised liberty, land and the chance to success but all that America has done for us is keep us in poverty and danger"

You are missing the point if you think he is saying that balck people in the ghetto are waiting for a wellfare cheque. What he is saying is that people are literally starving, and if you really are in the ghetto is virtually impossible to get out. The president wants to stop the crime, but how can that possibly happen if you have people in the streets starving?
He feels they need more help to escape - and lets face it, even more than 12 years on what has changed? Just look at New Orleans. Billions on a war, not a penny spent to prevent the levys breaking. Money for wars but can't feed the poor.
"40 acres and a mule fool" is not a literal reference. He is saying, that black people are simply not free when born into poverty.
Martin Luther King, Malcoom X made a difference because they reached people. 2pac reached as many if not even more people than they did. Love it or hate it, he is the Martin Luther King of his generation.
Whatever. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/26/08
What an insult to compare this trash with Martin Luther King. So welfare checks are how the government is supposed lift up black people? 2Pac was never a slave; he's not entitled to "40 acres and a mule." (Fool.) And nobody with any pride demands a handout. Martin Luther King fought for equality. Equality isn't sitting around collecting a welfare check because you think you're entitled to it. Equality is becoming a productive member of society and contributing something positive to the world. Whether you're black, white, red, or yellow. Poor and downtrodden comes in every color. So does bright, ambitious, and hopeful. There are plenty of black people who represent that, and this song does a terrible disservice to them.

Help foreign nations ? Which foreign nation have we helped. We help destroy foreign nations. And we serve our own interests under the pretext of "helping" other nations. If we had nothing in it for us, we wouldnt be helping any nation. Its called Capitalistic Terrorism.
Questions for the President | Reviewer: Jon | 11/14/04
This song by Tupac is very touching. It says everything men like Martin Luther King, and Malcolm X were saying. If the most powerful man in the world, which is the President can help foreign nations, what about our communities?
