David Banner: The American Dream Wasn't Meant for Black People
http://www.vladtv.com - David Banner gave yet another insightful interview as he sat down with DJ Smallz and reflected on his lectures, which strive to bring consciousness back to the youth. The Mississippi artist also shared his thoughts on Black culture, including why he believes that the "American Dream" was never meant for Black people.
"It was never meant for us to be a part of it. We chased it so hard that we put our children in front of the television...which was programed to make them feel like they were less than human. You wonder why kids want to be thieves, that's all they ever saw on television for the most part."
The "Get Like Me" emcee also shared his thoughts on why he came back to rap, telling DJ Smallz that a lot of the rappers with a message left the game due to album sales dipping. He added, "We left these kids alone. And as much as they say they want money, you know what they want even more? It's your time."
