Parable of Pull Yo Pants Up fada Prez and Yoself

Ideally, Plato Negro would like to cause a paradigm shift in youth culture.
Using his hometown, Oakland, as a Model City, in the lingo of Mayor Ron
Dellums, we want the youth of Oakland to serve as a model of radical
youth behavior by pulling up their pants and their minds, and at the
same time we want the City of Oakland to pull up its pants by
rearranging its budget wherein presently 75% of the budget goes to
police and the fire department. We want 75% to go for youth projects,
including jobs, education and recreation, also to anger management and
conflict resolution.
This would immediately decrease the need for police to consume such a large portion of City finances.

Just as America has done in Iraq to decrease violence by employing youth to

education with relevant curriculum
and providing housing fit for human beings.

Since she is preparing to allow the growing of marijuana to increase her tax
base, she must simultaneously decriminalize the selling of marijuana on
the street, especially since we know persons selling drugs suffer an
addiction to either use or selling, additionally they are most often
mentally ill, thus dual diagnosed, suffering addiction and mental
illness, equally in need of medication. We cannot permit one segment of
the population to sell drugs (whites) and criminalize another section
(blacks)--this is blatant racial discrimination.

Shall the police arrest a person who legally purchases marijuana at a club, then steps outside the door and sells it?

And why should not youth in the green revolution be allowed to grow
marijuana in community gardens just as Oakland is in the process of
allowing corporate growers to do?For sure, these corporate growers will
be white!

At the very least, police should immediately stop arresting youth for selling marijuana. And all those incarcerated should
be given a general amnesty.

This is all about pulling up the pants, but with dignity, honesty, justice and fairness. Adults cannot
tell youth to do anything while adults themselves are living
contradictions. As Amina Baraka said, "Youth cannot learn from our
mistakes if we are still making them."

How can Oakland permit the growing and selling of marijuana by rich, white corporations but
continue the criminalization of youth for selling and/or growing the

This is sufficient reason for youth to keep sagging their pants as a symbol of rebellion, in short, telling adults to kiss their
