Back in the 1990's I heard a talk given by Dave Stone on Jesus living in a modern neighborhood.
Mark 10:35–45 offers several reasons why we should be servants in our community, in our work environment, and in the neighborhood in which God has placed us. Jesus said that he did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many. But what took place before Jesus said those words? Why did Jesus break into a seemingly impromptu speech on servanthood?
A few verses before, in Mark 10:32–34, the disciples and Jesus are walking to Jesus' neighborhood in Jerusalem. He's explaining what is going to happen to him there: I've got some news for you. The religious leaders are going to arrest me; they're going to mock me; they're going to spit upon me; they're going to kill me. Three days later I'm going to come back from the dead.
This is the opposite of a smooth segue. Jesus tells them he is going to be put to death.
In verse 35, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, ask Jesus to let them have whatever they ask for. Just like a little kid says, "Hey, Mom! Just say yes, just say yes," these disciples asked for permission ahead of time. "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked. They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory."
Talk about being presumptuous. James and John felt they deserved seats of honor. I'm so glad none of us ever worry about things like that. We never worry about the corner office. We never ask to be first. We never want our favorite choice for dinner. Actually, we're just like these two guys. Jesus looks back at them and says: You guys don't know what you're asking. Do you drink the cup that I drink?

The events that have unfolded in Baltimore helps us to look at our behaviors, mentalities, levels of accountability, double standards, strengths and weaknesses as a whole society and individual race.
We'll be discussing Marilyn Mosby, her husband, Nick Mosby, professional protestors, Toya Graham, the youth presence vs the adult presence and what this possibly implies...
We question where our impact as adults have fallen onto the teenagers. Have we given them more secular hip hop culture & mentality or have we passed down wisdom for tomorrow? Have we shown them how to impact their neighborhood wisely? Or how to be the next narcissist who will step on whoever to get their point across and how to look "like a boss". How important a role has the lack of education and infrastructure played in urban areas? What are some positive events/protests that have unfolded in Baltimore and what do you believe led up to the commotion? IS Toya Graham (the mother who slapped her son), a symbol of the desperation within the black community? She has multiple children supposedly by different dads and is doing her best. But is the best from the single mother still losing?
The question was asked on National Television by a young adult about “where are the "so-called" leaders once the smoke clears?” To take it a step further where are the Church and local leaders? Why does the Church come out to tragic events but all you see and hear are the “so-called” leaders promoting their church or preaching but never offering a solution to solve the ongoing issues in the community? If the Church is part of the Community how come funds going to the church are used to better community by offering afterschool education or skills training? These are some of the questions the youth of today have presented. So what is your take on the issue? Should the Church be doing more if they are for the community? Why do local leaders never offer an active solution that is ongoing?
Solutions that can work if everyone takes responsibility in doing their part.
1. Education on being Financially Prepared - Make a plan to change your financial situation.
2. Enhancing your mind to get out of your own growth - Thinking and seeing beyond what you only know.
3. Stand your ground - When you see others destroying the neighborhood speak up, clean up, and rise up.
4. Reassure your kids that are valuable and they can accomplish anything. Stop putting them and others down. Parents be accountable for what you say.(Stop the cycle of death of our kids of being "P.O.O.R." (People Overlooking Opportunity Repeatedly).
5. Find a mentor that is doing positive and learn from their actions and words.
America is a funny land.
Not funny as in "ha ha," but funny as in strange.
So strange that even though cops have historically been at odds with Blacks, people try to pretend that there is something else going on in a so-called justice system that sometimes seems like it persecutes just us.
But anyone who has lived in a poor neighborhood with their eyes and mind open realizes that the "Thin Blue Line," is typically erected between the "haves" and the "have nots," frequently doling out abuse to the "have nots."
And, the "have nots" don’t always get their day in court when there is abuse, which is why periodically, the people speak in the loudest voice possible—riots.
Ferguson spoke in that loud voice and now, Baltimore is speaking as well.
Perhaps no city has the reputation for rioting that Los Angeles has earned.
This April 29, marked the 23rd anniversary of the notorious LA Riots.
And it is business as usual, from Rodney King to Micheal Brown and from Eric Garner to Freddy Gray, countless Black men and women in between, as well as throughout American history.

D-Shep - @DShepWorld
D-Shep is more than a just a southern artist with a regional sense of hip-hop. His lyrics tell of his struggles to make it out of his rough beginnings in Miami's Naranja neighborhood. Success is not something that's given to you its something you must take for yourself; D-Shep learned this at a young age as he struggled to survive on Miami's south side. Signed to an independent record label, D-Shep, born Darrell Sheppard, is the real deal; he's been on the streets, with the stories and credibility to back it, but still his southern background is apparent in his sense for good music.
After his first two mixtapes, "Rent Money" and "Eviction Notice", D-Shep has managed to resurface with another compiled mixtape of growth, hood and truth. Honestly titled "Rent Money 2nd Impression", it is his renewed drive to restore hip hop in Miami. While some rappers have decided to follow a certain pattern to define Miami music, D Shep has decided to recreate that lane for his own personal use. His track "Snap" took a music trend in Miami called stick music and made it work for him. It addresses some of the frustrations most talented artists encounter in this industry. Songs like "Living that Life" ft Akon and "Can't See Me" ft Git Fresh take you through a journey of his thoughts causing you to understand his reality. Not to mention with the help of Veronica V, "Rather be with you" allows D-Shep to keep it real with the ladies to become that side dude.
Unrest in Baltimore, a forecast to things to come. This is not your grandparents protest. “Outside Agitators.” KNEE-GROWS using the talking points of DEVILS. Property damage and looting, and NOT the death of Freddie Gray is the KNEE-GROW focus. Mother slapping her black child on T.V. for looting is fine today and child abuse yesterday Does a sign of unity between Gangs represent an ominous sign for America? The KNEE-GROW’S misguided celebration of Loretta Lynch swearing in as TOP COP in the U.S. Ayatollah of Iran “Trolls” Pres Obama: “Blacks have a President who look like them and they are still being oppressed.”
When people look at your life, what do they see? Are you following Jesus' example or are you living life like the world. What examples are you giving to your children, grandchildren, or the children in your neighborhood. Also what about the unsaved parents in your area. Are you being a Godly example to them as to how they should live or are you living like the rest of the world with no evidence of God anywhere in your life. Is your speech loving and kind or are you harsh towards those you come in contact with. We are suppose to be an example of Jesus Christ in the earth. It is time to check ourselves,
We have another case in the news of a black man being killed by the police. This has brought out activists, race pimps, students, pastors, and just about everybody else for Freddie Gray. One thing the media won't touch is the fact Freddie Gray and many of the other black men had long history of criminal activities. They were already headed down the road to be dead by their actions. Why am I suppose to be marching for them when you can say with almost certainty they have participated in activities that has lead to injury and death of other black men? The problem is we have everybody marching after these black men are killed but nobody stepping in before these clowns start their criminal careers. These hoodlums are the reasons other hoodlums are tearing up their neighborhood and innocent people are suffering from the loss of property and amenities. Now it is the problem that the National Guard and a heavier police presence is required to restore law and order. Tell me why are we blinking an eye at this foolishness. Now the State's Attorney has decided to file charges against the six police officers for the death of Freddie Gray
