Numerous adolescent Black men moving on from school today in the United States

Numerous adolescent Black men moving on from school today in the United States are less arranged to succeed in American culture than their ancestors who were discharged from subjugation in 1865. 

At the point when Black men were discharged from servitude in 1865, they got to be metalworkers, bricklayers, craftsmen, traders, instructors, specialists, attorneys, ranchers, farmers, cooks, officers and that's just the beginning. They constructed houses, towns, groups, organizations, families, schools, colleges, establishments and prospects. The greater part of these men had short of what a third-grade training. Given today's cosmically high unemployment rates for Black men in a few urban areas, even Black men with professional educations may not find suitable job, ever. 

One hundred forty-nine years after bondage has finished, sixty years after the Brown versus Topeka Board of Education Supreme Court decision and twelve years after the No Child Left Behind enactment, just 10 percent of eighth grade Black young men in government funded schools crosswise over America read at or over a capable level as indicated by the 2011 U.s. Division of Education's National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The disappointment of Black young men in American schools is an unaddressed, undeclared and uncared about national fiasco in the United States! 

Not having the capacity to peruse at an eighth grade level implies that youthful Black guys in America have less choices than their progenitors who were liberated slaves. They don't have the choice to go to school, or enroll in the military, or even to gain a living pay! Their absence of school achievement straightforwardly helps their super-high unemployment rate, their hyper-imprisonment rate in the jail framework, the horrible breakdown of the family unit, the social and financial rot of the Black group, and the handicapping, silly brutality that has over taken numerous Black groups. Indeed, as a number of these adolescent Black men cycle into the criminal equity framework, they observe that they have practically re-entered a bondage framework like the one their progenitors left-present day jails. 

There is no positive future in America for youthful Black men who can't read at an eighth grade level. They will experience difficulty working, living and surviving legitimately in America, and in a large portion of the created world. To be perfectly honest, they are worse off than their ancestors who were discharged from subjection. 

There is nothing more vital to the eventual fate of Black American groups than to guarantee that Black young men can read capably. The instruction of Black young men is so vital it is not possible leave singularly to schools and government. For youthful Black men to keep on existing and to start to flourish as suitable individual, folks, families and groups must take control of their learning. Dark groups are in charge of showing youthful Black men to peruse, to think, to assemble, to father and to love!

Dark star

A dark star is a theoretical object compatible with Newtonian mechanics that, due to its large mass, has a surface escape velocity that equals or exceeds the speed of light. How light is affected by gravity under Newtonian mechanics is questionable but if it were accelerated the same way as projectiles, any light emitted at the surface of a dark star would be trapped by the star’s gravity, rendering it dark, hence the name. Unlike a modern black hole, the object behind the horizon is assumed to be stable against collapse.

Blame is the act of censuring, holding responsible, making negative statements about an individual or group that their action or actions are socially or morally irresponsible, the opposite of praise. When someone is morally responsible for doing something wrong their action is blameworthy. By contrast, when someone is morally responsible for doing something right, we may say that his or her action is praiseworthy. There are other senses of praise and blame that are not ethically relevant. One may praise someone's good dress sense, and blame the weather for a crop failure.

Black Star arose from the underground movement of the late 1990s, which was in large part due to Rawkus Records, an independent record label stationed in New York City. They released one album, Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star on August 26, 1998. The record received critical acclaim, but only moderate commercial success. Black Star (and other members of the Native Tongues Posse) helped shape underground alternative rap, bringing it into the mainstream. Both Mos Def and Talib Kweli have gone on to greater commercial and critical success in their solo careers.

Black Star's emergence into the hip-hop scene came at a crucial point in music history. Following the deaths of both Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur, hip-hop was consumed in a world of chaos. Black Star attempted to bring reconciliation in the wake of these violent deaths. The self titled album contains various references to Biggie and Tupac, and attempts to create reconciliation in the hip-hop world: “I said one, two, three. It’s kinda dangerous to be an emcee. They shot Tupac and Biggie. Too much violence in hip-hop.”

In 2001, Black Star performed "Money Jungle" with Ron Carter and John Patton for the Red Hot Organization's compilation album Red Hot + Indigo, a tribute to Duke Ellington, which raised money for various charities devoted to increasing AIDS awareness and fighting the disease. In 2005, hip hop website TheSituation.co.uk reported Kweli said that a new Black Star album was "in the pipeline".

On Talib Kweli's Myspace he posted up a video saying that "We're going to find Mos Def and put it on camera that there will be a second Black Star album." In 2006, Mos and Kweli appeared together in the movie Dave Chappelle's Block Party, alongside Erykah Badu, Common, Jill Scott, Dead Prez and The Fugees, among others. They contributed a new song, "Born & Raised", to the movie's soundtrack.

The first new Black Star song was leaked via DJ J Rocc from Stones Throw Records. The song is produced by Madlib and is titled "Fix Up". On October 5, 2011 Black Star appeared on the Colbert Report and publicly performed the song for the first time.

On November 25, Black Friday "Fix Up" was released on iTunes followed by another song titled "You Already Knew".
As of 2011 Mos Def goes by the artist name Yasiin Bey.
