    I lost brain cells.

  • David Acosta on September 19, 2022

    Wtf do she really know at all to even breathe about this issue…. Tell black men to stop killing black men quit with the govt officials & actually name somebody

  • Pink Freud .. on September 19, 2022

    Sad part about this entire scenario is that this Kid is only 1 out of 100 Rappers who've gone out the same way.

    Right now you could walk through any hood in America draw up the same exact contract:

    Rich & Famous for 15 mins
    Clout, Attention and a Rap Career
    Then dead forever by the age of 30

    And get a thousand signatures from an endless supply of aspiring Rappers.

    They'd Mob you and riot they'd be trying to sign so quick.

    As a black woman, I am sick of the excuses from my community. If you have been sucking on the governments nipples since you were born (collecting welfare), you know nothing about systemic opression and everything about systemic opportunities.

  • Luis Rivera on September 19, 2022

    I'm getting so tired of all these blacks making excuses for blacks killing each other work hard go to school and get a job stop idolizing and glorifying gangs drugs sex and prisoners

    Why do you bring race into it. Being a black man in America has nothing to do with this. A black man shot and killed PNB not a white man. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

  • Big Dawgio on September 19, 2022

    this is not a genuine message nor female

  • T S on September 19, 2022

    Why is she talking about a grown adult, but sounding like a parent at school saying "My son wouldn't do that. Poverty did it."
    The cultural tendencies seem to include making excuses for the men and treating a 25 year old man like he's a kid who needs everyone to protect him, but then blame the women for what happened and treat 15 year old girls like they're grown women that should know better.

    Yes we have to stop the self inflicted Genocide, the
    Black on Black murder and crime. Yes poverty is a public health emergency and our government officials need to redistribute tangible resources, establish a citywide job plan , help create and expand businesses and help close the wealth gap in our community, and do it now.

    Lemme get dis straight race baiter Tamika Sharpton!!

    So PnB Rock from the same poor conditions as the robber killer worked his azz off to earn a better living, but the robber killer couldn't do the same because of the man??


    Anybody who applies themselves with discipline and work ethic can earn a better living from outta poverty!! Yes it is hard and yes it takes time to earn slow bucks!! But the alternative is fast money that leads to the grave or the cemetery!!

    I am so fuggin tired of these race pimps tell black people we cannot be shet!!

  • East Bee103 on September 19, 2022

    So a poor robber who cannot feed hisself and his family because of systemic poverty goes to the Waffle House and robs and kills a man for a chain to feed his family but does not steal any chicken and waffles to feed his family??

    Sure Mallory!!

  • East Bee103 on September 19, 2022

    Tamika Mallory is a protégé of Al Sharpton. She profits well off of the black struggle and she will NEVER want black people to take accountability for their actions because then her money will dry up!! The money that she makes is based on telling the black community that we cannot be responsible or accountable for our actions because the system and the man got us making bad choices!!

    Yall better wake up fast!!

  • Gang with shomny on September 19, 2022

    She is talking about “poverty and not having opportunities to live a better life” may I remind you ma’am that the same man they killed came from poverty Pnb Rock came from the slums just like most black people in the same country with the same government. He didn’t let that be an excuse to go rob people he made a way from himself when all the odds were stacked against him and succeed that’s how you come out from poverty not by the government. Remember the government was giving a way free cash to those eligible that’s why there’s an inflation you fool, I hope you get robbed and shot too so when you do I’ll get on TMZ and say you were killed because of poverty, Not jealousy laziness, Envy, Hatred, But by POVERTY Fool smh

    Glad to see the majority of the commenters can see that Mallory's "message" was complete garbage and she tried sadly to excuse this wicked behavior by blaming da gubbament and societal economic problems!!

  • East Bee103 on September 19, 2022

    This bish is talkin straight up bullshet!! You got to talk about good and evil!! Plenty poor people do NOT rob other people!! This bish will never talk about the gang mentality that poisons the mind of our people!!

    Bish is profiting off the black struggle, so of course she wants us to continue struggling or her money will dry up!!

    Just like big pharma profits off of disease and sickness, so they never want you to be healthy!!

  • East Bee103 on September 19, 2022

    Oh shut up race baiter!! Poverty aint got shet to do wit an evil Funky Broke Animal wanting somebody else chain and then graving him!'

  • Bobby Brunner on September 19, 2022

    Stop the boasting people, stop flexing. When it comes to jewelry wearers, read Isaiah 3:16. Forget the world challenges and get right with Christ. Time is running out.🙌🏾🙌🙌🏻🙌🏽🙌🏿

  • maraiyajanei on September 19, 2022

    Chile talk about not being street smart… mfs always blaming the white man and the government because these black males wanna run the streets … these mfs ain’t innocent the problem in the black community is that they treat black males like children and black women and girls like they grown and push them out the house too early…. 😐😒✌️

  • Josh Woolaghan on September 19, 2022

    This is the dumbest shit Ive ever heard in my life. Robbing and killing someone over jewelry has nothing to do with poverty. It’s grimy. MFers have zero morals.
