R. Kelly and Jimmy McMillan on The Lack of Support From The People

December 13, 2015

The King of R&B decided to take a moment to vent about the lack of support he receives from his own people when it comes to his music. It’s a subject that’s been much talked about lately, but somehow seems to be going in one ear and coming out the other, which is obvious since everyone is still complaining. Kells made it clear it’s not all about him and his music, it’s about all of us.

“I don’t care what we do. Whether it’s sports, whether it’s selling music, whether it’s having a clothing line, whether it’s having cologne, perfume, whatever it is, we have got to get out there and we got to support each other… If we don’t support us, how do we expect anybody else to support us?”

Across the board there is a serious lack of support in the black communities. Jimmy McMillan, a retired war veteran who started a fight to control rent hikes in low-income neighborhoods, with his “Rent Is Too Damn High” Party, has given up his fight, because of the lack of support he receives from the people. The 69-year-old made the announcement in a press release last week stating the people of New York are being “brainwashed,” but yet he still wishes them the best.

His press release reads:

McMillan a disable Vietnam Veteran has been spending his own money, a disability pension he receives for injuries he received during combat in Vietnam Was 1966-1967-1968. I am walking away because I have to know another choice the people have ignored my warning and my cry for help that the rent crisis was getting worse. The kind of help they cannot get from not one elected official, not the Governor neither the Mayor can give them.

A rent reduction for the people in the cities of Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, Manhattan and Queens is easy to accomplish but NO one has asked me to help. The people are being totally brainwashed and lied to about Low in Come Housing by NYC Mayor who knew he could do anything to prevent the Homeless from escalating. Rent is too damn high is an international crisis.

There are many questions the people should ask themselves. I wish them the best – I’m out.
