Black Hand Entertainment Embarks on Prison Tour

black-hand-logo.jpgBlack Hand Entertainment, home of New York rappers Grafh and Prinz, have embarked on a tour of prisons across the country in an effort to reduce black on black gang and jailhouse violence. Most recently, Black Hand CEO Chaz “Slim” Williams appeared at the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in Coleman, FL as part of the “Black Block History” program conceived by Tupac’s stepfather Mutulu Shakur. The visit included workshops for inmates and featured a performance from Ja-Rule. Actor Charles Dutton, of the sitcom Roc, also made an appearance at a medium security prison in the Coleman Complex. Other goals of the program include aiding in the elimination of the black prison revolving door syndrome, promoting education, garnering legal support against excessive sentencing, and bringing a code back to the street. The tour is scheduled to stop at Rikers Island, Sing Sing and Arizona State Penitentiary in March.

    Black on black violence will never end not here and sure as fuck not in Africa. The reason simply is the fact that in the minds of many black people violence(in many cases) murder is a perfectly good response to any form of conflict or anything that angers them. Another simple fact is one of the biggest money maker if not the biggest in most black neighbourhoods is cocaine. So the choices are struggle twenty years through school or chill, make money and kill anyone who gets in you way. As much as this is to be expected it is the main reason why white people do not like blacks. Weather or not they realize it blacks are a minority and an angry hateful majority will do nothing but but them back in the 1960′s. They have proven most of the Klansmen right as when left to their own devices they resort to crime and victimization of the white population.

    Mista Whiteman! Did you know that white people have been the worst murderers the world have ever known? check your history! yes, black on black crime is a travesty and self-genocide. and yes, in Africa there is genocide going on between certain tribes (tutsi, hutu). but if you go to the root an origin of their strife one could argue the COLONIZATION and NEO-COLONIZATION by whites/British have created this problem for Africa. Get off the surface white boy and recognize! Black people want the same peace and tranquility that whites in the ‘burbs want. we just have a different set of circumstances. for you to be blogging on a hip-hop site, you should br more culturally astute than you come off. check the lyrics and you will hear the problems of being black in America. Or better yet, read a book… on of mine. “Ghetto Religiosity 1,2,3″ or “Hip-Hop-erations…” http://www.iuniverse.com Khalil Amani, S.A. TO THE HIP HOP NATION.

    Big Ups to Black Hand for going inside to show some support to the brothers on lock down. Violence is here and probably wont be going anywhere but I feel they werew trying to promote a cease to black on black violence, and gang violence. No one can eliminate violence and thats not what I read or got from that write up. Prisons dont pay these people to go into these prisons, they have to come out of pocket to travel, so I’m sure whatever they are doing they feel is making a difference somewhere, perhaps even stopping a prisoner from stabbing someone to death for the one day. If the rappers or blacks promote violence you complain, here they are going into the most volitile, and violent spots in america and you still talking negative. You wont be satisfied until they bring the violence to your doorstep. What happened in New York to Sean Bell happens all over the country, so violence doesnt always come out of a black fist. These guys are talking stop the violence but they are also talking self defense. Do your research! Black Hand, and all the others keep up the good work.

    yes we do have an excuse and it always points to you…..

  • illijah

    wow… yall are making this into such a black/white thing for no reason… you know i wonder what the white on white crime stats are? You never hear that because everyone in the media wants to portray white people as having everything together but ill be the first to tell you we dont. As far as our history, yes we HAVE done alot of unforgiveable things… so what are you saying? that when i look at my heritage i should be ashamed? I should look at my bloodline and be EMBARASSED? How long am i supposed to be a disgrace because i am caucasian? This is why we will never have racial equality… you got unforgiveness on one side and arrogance on the other(yes white people are pretty arrogant and ignorant to the stuff we do).

  • fuckin cracker

    If you want an excuse, look in the mirror, da kid gat. I didn’t cause you to do crack, have chidren out of wedlock, or gang bang. I also didn’t cause black on black crime, or the prison population being overwhelmingly minorities. if you want an excuse look in your own mirror. LOL

    Fuckin craker – I tried to lay low on your punk ass. Read my response to your post from the Common contreversy bitch. You and whiteman can suck my black penis. You homosexuals harrass teens of color on this website because you do not have the courage to approach random black people in the streets with your theories. This is a good way for bitch ass people like you to vent. I applaud your efforts to avoid getting the shit beaten out of your asses. I challenge you both as a man, to post your real name and email addresses.

  • D

    Fuck all peace shit – you mutha fuckas have gone too far… fuck trying to sway you mutha fuckas to see shit our way. I will beat you both into submission.

  • D

    Maybe I was a bit rash – let me rephrase what I said – It would make me smile from ear to ear to actually know who you mutha fuckas are – I mean that. Unless you are willing to post your real names and email addresses, we have nothing more to talk about. You will be immortalized as bitches on this website.

  • D

    Fuckin craker and whiteman – I’ll let you both get in the first lick – that means I’ll let you hit me first… come on – you can’t turn away from that… you’d be a complete bitch.
