Diddy's Commencement Speech

I Know You Guys Are Graduating …

BUT TODAY IS ABOUT ME!

breaking news



Sean "Diddy" Combs
gave a rousing speech to the graduating class at Howard University today, and while the speech had its moments … it sure seemed to be an awful lot about how it was HIS day … more than theirs.

Diddy's speech didn't seem too scripted and went on for quite a while. He talked a lot about running the New York City Marathon in 2003 after only eight weeks of training.

He also quoted Biggie several times and hashtagged his own speech midway through.

But congrats to the graduating class of 2014.

In 2004, 10,370 blacks took the LSAT examination. Only 29 blacks, or 0.3 percent of all LSAT test takers, scored 170 or above. In contrast, more than 1,900 white test takers scored 170 or above on the LSAT. They made up 3.1 percent of all white test takers. Thus whites were more than 10 times as likely as blacks to score 170 or above on the LSAT. There were 66 times as many whites as blacks who scored 170 or above on the test.

Even if we drop the scoring level to 165, a level equal to the mean score of students enrolling at law schools ranked in the top 10 nationwide but not at the very top, we still find very few blacks. There were 108 blacks scoring 165 or better on the LSAT in 2004. They made up 1 percent of all black test takers. For whites, there were 6,689 test takers who scored 165 or above. They made up 10.6 percent of all white students who took the LSAT examination.

The nation's top law schools could fill their classes exclusively with students who scored 165 or above on the LSAT. But if they were to do so, these law schools would have almost no black students.

It won't run. No loss. I'm sure it was written by his people and he was coached at diction and elocution. So Diddy got a doctorate handed to him? Nice. Tell that to someone working their ass off stressed beyond the breaking point trying to wrap up their doctorate. I'm sure they'll appreciate it.

How impressed are we supposed to be with someone who has others write the commencement speech? Yes, yes, they all have help writing it so they all should simply post the words and list the authors. If these college grads can read then they will get the message of the authors.

If they really want someone to read it they should get a medium or psychic so they can claim that they are channeling the authors.

Puffy tried to kill Tupac... that's a fact that cannot be denied. Puffy had the gun charge when he tried to make his driver cop to the gun - another fact.

Who knows what this POS has done back inda day.

No wonder Bono almost puked when Puffy tried to kiss him Irish style/

Puffy as the $ behind the Tupac shooting in NYC - Puffy tried to get his driver to cop to a gun when he was pulled over after a club shooting. Puffy has a criminal mentality and is a POS.

Congrats Harvard!

The secret that Martin Luther King knew was that no one owes black people jack ****. Black people have been doing the same thing for over 15000 years and you still suck at it. Have you wondered why the music this guy makes sucks? Anyone with average IQ can do what this guy does. This ***** makes all his money off pork and being a thirsty house *****. Eye on the Prize, the prize was Dope. The million man march was just a million thirsty *****s. It's racist for me not to call Diddy a thirsty ******. Think about it, thirsty **** wants people to get **** for him. Well I'm tell you where to get it. Go to *****ia or ***** you thirsty ******. The black stars you worship are so hoe like and thirsty it's an embarrassment to me as a human being.

The secret that Martin Luther King knew was that black people have been doing the same thing for over 15000 years and still suck at it. Have you ever wondered why this guys music sucks? Anyone with moderate intelligence can do what this guy does. You can't complain about the government when all you *****s make money off pork. I guarantee you these hoe ass entertainers aren't the key to the advancement of black people. There are plenty of black people with real degrees that aren't thirsty puppets.

Having Jug-Head speak at a university commencement
ceremony, is the logical-equivalent of Herman Goebbels
speaking to the B'nai B'rith.

Besides, the U.S. system of "Higher-Education" is one of the biggest shams in American History.
got Student Loans?
got EMPLOYMENT????
