It’s possible, you just need to know where to look. I’ve found a few on YouTube. Can’t name them off the top of my head except you, but they pop up in my recommend. One makes videos with “chosen ones” in the title. Can’t remember his channel name cuz I found him recently, but he says a lot of stuff and some of it might just be what you need to hear at the time.
Edit: His name is DarrylsWorld. He just has a way of speaking that’s so nice to listen to.
Is it possible to be a black doctor, lawyer, engineer, scientist, teacher? Of course it is. These are every day choices we gotta make and thus why people have to make the better choice every day.
Big Herc, love your message. I’m from MD. Baltimore is rough. The circle needs to be broken. There are some great souls there going through hell. Please if you have a child, love them.
The lack of a father in the home is huge. I am a white suburbanite, and even in an upper middle class school, there are the occasional kids who didn't have a dad in their life. Their behavioral patterns were noticeably different. The fact that it is actually the norm and not the exception should be an outrage in those communities.
Everything starts with good parenting to avoid all the street credit
Your not born bad.. it’s what your exposed to..just look at the nba for example.. 2 black guys from different team or the same team get heated.. look how hype the media gets these players make millions but they have to show war among us because that’s what sales.. there are billions of dollars invested in us to keep us at war among each other.. so no it will never be positive in the black community as a whole
Prison is a reality we weren't born for, black people need to think hard about why we are so influenced to be cool and get nothing done that puts our group in an advantage, if we can only think we are born for sports and entertainment obviously there's an issue that we are not educated, I do music myself but that's not the only plan I have for our society because I understand in a modern world you need to be intelligent to survive…..glad LSD and mushrooms turned me into a nerd cause all the people I used to know are gangbanging strung on the percs & lean thinking their rap career is what's going to change the reality, I say everything is energy, frequencies, and vibrations, you can still be cool and do drugs but you have to know which ones to choose and know its a time and place for everything, I get mentally strung out just smoking weed daily knowing I'm not at my fullest potential, I can only imagine the kids in the hood who don't have a primal mind to think for themselves, I feel more like a sucka and out my element tryna appeal to other people
Doing anything to bring blk folks together in productive positivity is a big no no in America. Just look at what happens to our leaders once they gain positive influence over our community:
Blk Wallstreet – Massacred
Martin Luther King – Murdered
Malcolm X – Murdered
Bobby Hutton – Murdered
Huey P. Newton – Murdered
Martin Luther King – Murdered
The current status quo of the blk community only cares to entertain what feels good, not what actually works, especially if it’s at our own detriment. The powers at be do not want a truly pro blk conservative male leading the masses. Any man with this much influence could easily disrupt the liberal handout agenda designed to keep blk folks at the bottom. This is why we can’t cave a truly positive blk male leading our community to success.
Rest In Peace Kevin Samuels 🕊
You have an influence on me big herc.
Much Love Big Homie 💪🏾
Haven’t even watched the video yet. Just read the headline and I’m glad someone asked this real question.
Herc, idk if it possible. Our people love the BS they profit from the BS it’s a two fold issue that I’m not sure can be solved.
You are a positive black 🖤 influencer bro
Of course. If they're not pushing a radical & hypocritical ideology.
Just heard about Kevin Samuels death, although not the nicest guy in the neighborhood , he was always trying to help the black community in his own way in every interaction he had with women, Its a shame people are cheering his death because he was "to mean".
2 elements here you got the influencer and the audience. Influencer entertains the degenerate audience. The social media platform rather ban channels they simply don't agree with.
No. Black people are done for in this society and we should just lay down and rot
Influencer is a business really & if a large market buys into your positive influence, yes you can be successful. As you said Big Herc, if we thirst after drama, conflict & negativity then that's on us. Our mindset must change. You are a HUGE part of that change & I for one truly appreciate what you're doing.
Check out Dr Boyce Watkins
Yes, you prove it everyday
Very true what youre saying about positive changes from within the neighbourhood will increase quality of life of everybody, not just in immediate short term but through property values increasing, more visitors and prosperous businesses etc
S500 looking clean
I mean have you never heard of EYL (earn your leisure)?
Kevin Samuels was positive.
MTR is positive.
I agree, there’s not many of them but I would also say there’s not many black content creators all in all (look at twitch).
It’s a sad discussion to have overall but yes I do believe you can be a positive black influencer and grow not talking about popular topics like murdering blacks, fuck shit and disrespecting block women.
EDIT: 4:45 about schools, neighborhoods, power. Eh. I don’t believe it. America was built for blacks to barely coexist in but not have any power. Over the 1900’s just look at all the black massacres. Look at redlining. Crack vs coke. Time and time again the American gov’t has specifically held back blacks. I don’t see that ever changing.
Not in the mainstream. The media and the politicians wont allow it. Picture this, Im a singer and I pitch a song to a label about killing cats. What will the label say? Not a chance, but now imagine I make a song about killing black rival gang members. Yep, all good. This is what the community wants, and this is how they stay under the control of the system.
💯 Herc my channel turning to show dudes another way….we can’t save them all but we still have to try
A friend once sat me down once and said look!
Look how movies, music, tv portray us. Drugs, guns, violence. They glamorize and call it a "culture". Either your a baller, rapper or drug dealer. Like that is the ONLY road to success!
Like you're a sell out if get success any other way.
I've NEVER been able to look at all of it the same!
Jessie Lee Peterson is the only good leader blacks have, and they hate him.
No. The powers that he want us to be dumb as f*@k, sheep. They won’t give the right push. They don’t even send me you’re notifications and I have the bell and all. Haven’t watched you’re content in a while, but it’s always good stuff.
As Jay-Z says, "Black excellence." That's the vibe Big Herc pushin'.
Herc, I have major respect for you as a positive influencer. You’re making a difference (positive)in many black lives. Young,& old. Unfortunately, it’s up to the individual to choose the path they want for themselves. Life isn’t easy,these new generation’s want instant gratification. Hard working folks are still around, but the population is diminishing. You just keep spreading your knowledge,& positivity. There are many people watching,& listening. If you make a difference in one person’s life, you’ve achieved a lot. Thanks.💯❤️👍🏾😀🙋🏽♀️✝️🙏🏾🇺🇸🔥
It's possible but for some reason people are more drawn to drama and conflict than positive behavior, therefore it makes it more difficult to develop a following
5:25 artisticas son unos GIRLS18.Uno muchas y un buen ejercicio. Saludos desdem la Cd. de world 🌹😉💖
Always good topic
I HATE the term "Influencer". It's just cringe.
RIP KEVIN SAMUELS…. brother was a leader like Big Herc.
Yes you can
I don't see what race has to do with it but yea you sure can
Yes but I couldn’t name you more than 10 off the top of my head outside of the Black Tech channels. Blacks love emotional roller coasters and train wrecks for entertainment. Other stuff is considered corny to most unfortunately.
Of course it’s possible sir! Like Terrell Potter said, you’re the proof!
