  • This is so cringe. Who exactly made them the black leaders of black people? Did black people vote for them? Or is this "controlled opposition" presented to us by white corporate interest. Ya'll aint our leader FOH.

  • You just dividing this place even more when you point people’s race. Why black is different from Mexican, Jewish, Chinese or any other non “non white” ????

  • Inspiring video that underscores the importance of ambition, education, hard work, and taking responsibility for one’s journey in life. It emphasizes the importance of giving back to the community by uplifting others and paving the way for them to embark on a path of similar achievement and success.

  • 2021 and we still have black racism in the comments and outright in BLM (cofounder of BLM Yusra had her account deleted on twitter! LOL busted)

    Sir DertySir Derty25 kun oldin
  • It is still 2021 and we have racial division naively done by the extreme far-left alt-tech left... and yet they cry everyone else is racist? Imagine how naive. It is the reason BLM cofounder Yusra no longer has a twitter account just like Trump, LOL! Get real.

  • The people disliking the video are uncomfortable with Black having success.

  • Wow! Right-wingers in the comment section are triggered by seeing Black people depicted in a positive light. Yet they claim to not be racist 🤔

  • Marxists have cooked fictional problems and they're trying to figure it out. Typical for the comunistic principles. What is weird with the black person who occupy some position? Color of a skin doesn't matter at all. If someone is good at something then gets position which is deserved. Sad that black community is used in this way by media and politicians.

    MmeteoMmeteo25 kun oldin
  • First all, congratulations on them meeting their individual goals and success. With that being said, I don't know who designated these individuals "black leaders". This is are just highly educated Americans that were singled out based on their race in order to tell other members of their demographic what they should be aspiring to be and to never be critical of these professions which overall don't benefit and WILL NEVER be beneficial to the vast majority of all Americans. Yes, people in this video- you are being used as a shield, based on your race, to protect the status quo. Happens all the time and CNBC along with the other corporate media and most elected officials used identity politics to shield legitimate criticism of a broken and corrupt system. Pure propaganda.

    • @I Ro oh so your saying descendants shouldn’t get reparations?..... 1. Why would you care?....2. Germany gave reparations to the Jewish community!.... You just don’t understand what reparations would entail so that’s why your scared. Just admit you have no empathy for anyone, and stop being so emotionally immature... then maybe you would understand the math and the facts.... If I have you work for me for 400 years and never pay you, violence towards women every night before they go to bed,,,, steal Land, inventions,,, create a awful education system.... do medical procedures on you with no anesthesia?..... Your saying you want nothing in return after all that?.

    • @Sour Lemons how is it hateful? If he was really the “hero” they portrayed him to be, then he should be number one this list. They burned, killed and looted for him the whole year... is that not shaping history??

    • I see the sarcasm in your statement but come to Cape Town, South Africa anyways. You'll sort of understand the weirdly phrased 'black coloured person'.
