Dash Radio or a Tonetalks Youtube channel 7pm pst “Freeway Rick Ross, Black Wealth and the Dope Game” fire Guest Freeway Rick Ross Going in on Jay Z, Rick Ross, John Singleton with…
I appreciate this interview, yes this man dealt poisonous drugs into black communities. Rick Ross is keeping it real explaining the reality behind his drug dealing and how it deliberately was dropped into black communities where people where starving and desperate. These celebrity rappers are doing the same thing, peddling an image of I started out illegal and look where I’m at now. This man brings honesty to this whole game and that’s so necessary. Black people have got to get real and stop living through celebrity life styles you don’t have nor should black celebrity peddle the you can do what I did too anthem. Come on you see judges throwing rappers in jail for riding a dirt bike because supposedly she wanted him to work with someone in her circle. If that does not spell out the same starvation and desperation from the 80’s......
I am so glad you and Yvette are speaking on the tax reform that just passed Tone. The bill has passed with a few provisions removed.......People are only looking at the surface of this bill (standard deductions, child tax credit increase, etc.), they don't consider the services that are in place which helps others at least get a leg up to the starting line that will be severely underfunded & affected!!! That means income eligibility guidelines will change! Poverty Income guidelines will decrease, causing causing THOUSANDS of people to be pushed out and blocked from these services!!!!! This means opportunity for education will be affected! Pell grants, even scholarships, WIA programs, middle & HS education and after school services, housing assistance services, utility assistance services, affordable healthcare, medicare, and medicaid!!!!!! Our elderly population will take a big blow, especially those living in subsidized housing and senior buildings, those receiving medicare/caid, & SNAP benefits, not to mention our young generation that won't even have the economic access necessary to a higher ed; let alone they're already receiving a sub-par elementary & H.S. education! College tuition and dorm costs across my state has been increased by almost 40% since 2015!!! This means THOUSANDS of dollars in STUDENT LOAN DEBT will be one of the only options to higher ed for many. But then, where's the OPEN DOOR to accessing job security? Man I just can't understand why MANY A.A. don't see the severity of this tax bill! They are looking at only how it pertains to THEMSELVES!!!!! It's time to get out of the brain-washed mindset of the individualist and do-for-self mentality!!!!
Wait a minute!!! He funded whose first album? Tone, did you say Anita Baker? I had no clue, never knew this. She's a great songstress, I love ALL her music!! I just never knew this.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tell you one thing, it was well worth it.....
i see two people that need to converse antonio and umar .
I remember Reagnomics era. A lot of programs where cut in the 1980s, especially for the mental issue, these individuals were released to the streets and SFO had a growing population homelessness, I was working in the SFO and living in the Bay Area so I witness what was happening. In addition, USA was in a deep recession, then came the infiltration of crack into the communities and homelessness exploded with lack of jobs. I remember the drug dealers making money hand over fist driving high-in vehicles in neighbors where there was no wealth, plus a lot of drive by killings by dealers to take over terrritories. It was not a pleasant era in USA.
Tonetalks is a great platform that discuss the past/future of blacks in USA concerning lack of wealth, etc. Even though, TV One is suspending the Roland Martin segment effective, December 21, which this program touched on issues affecting blacks in USA; the discussion needs to continue, which is extremely important for those who will listen. Blacks in USA are going to feel a lot since the Senate passed the new tax bill; however, it will go to resolution between the Senate/House, the main point is the bill is here to stay, whatever the resolution presents at the end of the day. Basically, the gap between wealthy and poor Americans regardless of race has just widen; fascism at it's finest. Keep up the good work Antonio.
Obviously they ain’t gonna build prisons for woman, because they got something between there legs.
The person who referred to illegal immigration and impact on black economics now and the coming years will be a problem. I hope Tone does a show on that too.
Lets believe the conspiracies, they dropped drugs where we live, isn't the definition of a SELL OUT being someone who takes an opportunity provided by the enemy & uses it to exploit our people by participating in the ruining of our communities in cooperation with the enemy, selling the they drugs dropped & using the guns they dropped as well? Yes, the FUCKING epitome of a sell out is characters like this. Please, you niggas co-signing this HAVE no right calling anyone else COON or SELL OUT, even if they David Duke's Black Friend.
How are we running out of land? Or is we cut off from land and boxed in the hood
Diabetes isn't caused by sugar. But does Tone have an email where we can send a question or a topic that would be beneficial to address?
First of all, I like to thank you for your wisdom and your boldness. You have a gift to take complicated subjects and break them down for the common folk. Our people have shied away from knowledge. Your down-to-earth spirit is what is needed today!
My brother, I have over 40 years of experience in agriculture. Yes, a large percentage of land (rural) is owned by a very few. But we have to be careful not to determine that there is no need to pursue an array of opportunities that lie within natural resource management and education. Production of food, fiber, and fuel have great potential for black folks. There are so many methodologies that can be incorporated not only in rural agriculture but also in urban agriculture. In addition agriculture in Africa, the Caribbean, Central America and South America a wide-open for black people. The organic sector of agriculture is roughly 55 billion annually with a 15% increase. From production to process and distribution; controlling the complete supply chain offers great returns on revenue. From the seed to the dollar bill should be our goals. Establishing industries within the realms of natural resources will enable us to move forward with this upcoming challenging economy.
I was a little bit disappointed that Brother Ricky would look at marijuana as a future opportunity; the benefits to our community are so small. We don't need to put our resources towards addictive industries. All due respect for the brother's evolution, but substance abuse of any type must become obsolete for our communities. Maybe he might consider hemp as an alternative. Other crops that he might want to look at is the production of various botanicals which are used in an array of products (hair care, herbal remedies and much more).
Perhaps we should talk soon so that I can give you a little bit more understanding of the various potentials that lie within agricultural production. Once again keep up the good work my brother!

food stamps are going towards the illegal immigrants in our country -- I am Not fighting for food-stamps for a bunch of illegal who shooting black people in California - the illegal immigrants are coming here for welfare , they are out birthing black and the plan is to replace the black community ; everything we black slaves fought for are passdown to immigrants anyway - --- the carribeans are shipping tows of food from food-stamps back to the carribean which causes my taxes to go up-
Never let Russell baby-sit . the sad thing is most D-dealers don't have a passbook -- many D dealers don't know how to read a globe - this is how I knew the government brought the drugs into the black communities--
how about we adopt - Black first attitude - -- If heroine was good the white man would not offer it to any black person, that is the first clue that the crap is no good-the only time I would use drugs is when I am my death bed checking out ---
Black people have to demand to End the illegal occupation in America, especially in the Black community - We are more concern about the Palestine issue with Israel occupation than our issue in America with illegal immigrant occupation in our community - there is less for the black family - it is a fact the more you have taken from the jar, the less in the spread
Remember a white reporter exposed the governments role in the drug epidemic in the Black community.
They have a plan of destruction against us that is deep and very calculated.
If this was about people being hurt or killed, prosecute for assault manslaughter, murder etc. Making drug laws implies alternate motives.
Freeway is guilty of helping to pipeline hard narcotics into the black community, just like Frank Lucas and Rich Porter, there is no doubt about that. But lets be honest you can't just blame the dealer, they sold the poison but black america was clearly fertile ground for the consumption of the poison. Crack cocaine is just one component of black america's decline since the 60's, economic changes, welfare policies, education, the decay of the family unit, they all play a major role. Again Rick Ross needs to take greater responsibility and acknowledge his role in helping to spread a terrible poison into the community but black america's problems started before hustlers like him came on the scene.
Anybody ever think about how you would run and promote the world & news if you owned all the money printers? colonized all the major lands while knowing you were the inferior genetically since the beginning of documented time? I mean, come on. The numbers are circles. The point is to get out of the cyclic oppressive web of fear, ego & more stubborn fear.
It's funny that you mentioned The Post Office. They are trying their best to have the least amount of black people getting new jobs and making the current people there doing triple amount of the work.They are also giving false hope to new hires by keeping them as contractors as long as they possibly can
The biggest myth is that selling drugs is the last option. Not true. It’s the laziest and easiest option surely.
Absolutely....selling drugs in the black community destroyed the community. POINT BLANK.
I can agree with what y'all are saying but at the same time I cant. First starters I have no disagreement about the governments role they play, leaving a vacuum, all of that. I'm in recovery and all of us who have drug issues, rather it's using it selling, we know the consequences...jails, institution, death, or dereliction. I can't blame the government all the damn time. We have the power of choice, I can choose this drug life or I cant.
Tone Talks the state I live in locks up more women than any other state in the U.S. They also give more women here fed time. I live in Oklahoma.
Tone, thanks for bringing on Rick and giving us access on the live show to call in and talk with him. I hope black folks will do there research to understand how blacks are always the target of agencies whom have designed a system where blacks are always going to be at the bottom of. If it were not crack then it would have been something else. Crack was just one of the tools they have used. Understand deception and that deception is an excellent tool to use against those who do not understand how it works. Not just the definition of it but how to use deception against those whom you are targeting.
I don’t know Rick. I love you.But, you know what? Former black dealers need to wholly own their damage on the black community. You can say it’s “a part” of its destruction, no, simply tell the truth and say it ravaged the black community like no other event. Bottom line.
So netflix can run a show about black connected to the drug industry, but can run a show about blacks gaining their freedom in defeating whites, as in the documentary, 1804 The Hidden History of Haiti.
Rick killed so many black people of his own people it’s sad. I don’t hear any remorse or responsibility from Him. So many other people had that opportunity to kill other black people like yourself but passed it up because they had ethics and didn’t want to kill black people
