Brian (Waterhead Bo) Bennett So who was the biggest black kingpin of all time? Just how do you measure that? Money, volume of dope, power, cultural impact?
Perhaps it was Frank Matthews… you can learn more about him in my documentary “The Frank Matthews Story” link. But in terms of documented transactions that we know about for sure, who was convicted in court: One man stands alone. Brian “Waterhead Bo” Bennett.
Bennett and his Colombian Partner, Mario Villabona, were eventually convicted of moving nearly l5 thousand kilos that they talked about on certain wiretaps between December of 1987 and November of 1988. Some of the loads were as large as 1000 kilos and cheaper than $9,000 dollars each wholesale. That’s 1500 keys a month for nearly a year. And that’s just on the wiretapped phones.
Who knows how much he really sold in total.
Claims are made about this one and that one selling more, but 15,000 keys sold for sure is the most we know about for any black dealer.

Uh, U.N.I.T.Y., U.N.I.T.Y. that's a unity
U.N.I.T.Y., love a black man from infinity to infinity
For those of you who are too young to remember this bar, it comes straight from the mouth of our big sis Queen Latifah.
This song dropped way back in 93'. So i ask you all these years later. Have we followed her example?
How bout this one?
Ignorance of each other is what has made unity impossible in the past. Therefore we need enlightenment. We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity. Once we have more knowledge (light) about each other, we will stop condemning each other and a United front will be brought about.
Can't argue with brother Malcolm bout that. Can you? What would he think of african american unity today?
Lets try one more.
"Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking."
White man lost his temper when he heard the women at the counter speaking Arabic A Dallas man tried to buy a purse at a Macy’s store in the mall over the holidays, but lost his temper when he heard the women at the counter speaking Arabic.
So he yelled at them and then lashed out at the other customers when they asked him to be respectful, reports the Heavy.
“You’re being mean to her,” a customer tells him.
The man retorts by asking, “Are you a bunch of Democrats? Yeah, a bunch of Democrats.”
“All you Arabs and Democrats, just go back where you came from,” the man says after multiple customers ask him to leave the store.
“Well, she’s making a big stand, why don’t I?” the man asks as the fracas continues.
“I cannot see how so many Arabs came out of the woodwork,” he adds, as the Macy’s attendants try to accommodate his needs.
“Dude, you’re the snowflake here,” observes another customer.
To which the man retorts, “F*ck you. Put me on YouTube.”
A video of the incident went viral.
The woman identified as Theresa claimed the 9-year-old boy “grabbed my ass,” but the footage shows him merely brushing against her — corroborating the claims of eyewitnesses inside the store who said the boy did not “assault” the woman. A Brooklyn, NY resident named Theresa and nicknamed "Cornerstore Caroline" speaks to NY's Pix11 news after calling police on a black boy she accused of sexual assault. Image via Andrew Ramos/Twitter. Security camera footage has disproven the claims of a white woman nicknamed “Cornerstore Caroline” who called the police on a 9-year-old black boy for “sexual assault.”Andrew Ramos, a reporter with New York’s Pix11 news station, tweeted the surveillance video clip that shows the woman leaning over a store counter as the boy, identifiable by his bright green school uniform shirt, walks behind her. “Video completely vindicates the child,” Ramos noted. “Deli owner…
THE 'MAGA' KIDS
The ‘MAGA’ Kids
As a adolescent i was not interested in much. Especially politics. I was worried about stuff television, music, and doing the most juvenile things i could think of. But things change. Nowadays im surprised to see many more adolescents expressing themselves in them manner of their own political views. Whether that expression is drawn on a shirt, sown on a hat, or colored on a flag. These pre-millennials are out in force. And are not ashamed to show whos side they are on politically.
What caused this change that lead to such an interest in politics in adolescent teens? Feelings, over exposure in the media, the internet for sure,but most of all, their parents.
We all know that a parents view have a huge impact on their children. Who else would allow them to come to school draped in a confederate flag. Or a t-shirt with hateful symbols or message.
But i didn't want to make this story about the parents. I want to discuss who or what got th…
