Peter Bailey takes his critically-acclaimed series to New York City where mega-developer Don Peebles invited him to discuss the Presidential election, hip hop and the show Empire's effect on urban youth. With a net worth of more than 700 million, Peebles heads the largest black-owned real estate empire in America. In this discussion he decries the nation's widening wealth gab particularly that of minorities.
Great interview. I've always liked Don Peebles and have read his books. Very inspiring conversation.Mental and Floss
I have been so encouraged!!!Mary Peoples
to many interruptions from the other guy.. please tell him to pipe down some on his opinions and outburst. overall good vid521talent
Very good interview. Many relevant points were brought up around the economic imbalance in this country. This interview needs to be heard by many more people and action needs to be taken.Bobby Beniefield
I am extra late but you're a blessing for providing this type of content. Thanks so much brutha. Please keep it up!#4TheCulture
Ahh...where to start.
1. I hate when people wear blazer over turtle necks to look bright(when they actually are not that bright)
2. Don't say you are an ancient history buff and then follow it up by making Rome empire/USA analogy. Everybody kinda knows that one.
3.the experience of an Afro diaspora is completely different than that of an African American so who the fuck are you to comment on race relations/race obsession in this country?
Now I do believe the only way black people can achieve equality in this country is through economic equality. That's fundamental and simple even though it's hard for a lotta people to understand. That, we agree on, but the question is how can we achieve economic equality?
1. According to Mr. Peebles himself, NAFTA killed many manufacturing jobs. How? Because it allowed cooperation to exploit cheap labor in Mexico.
2.Why did NAFTA get a bipartisan support from both parties? Because both parties had the same donors and they serve the same master.
3.With in the same interview Mr. Peebles argued reducing government involvement in economic growth and letting the private sector handling it will bring about economic growth.HOW SWAY??Cause,The same private sector that spent millions of dollars lobbying for NAFTA cares about poor people? Right!! Lol
4. I'm suppose to trust the same people that corrupt politicians to give a shit about me?
5. Nah Mr. Peebles, people like you should stop bribing politicians and we can finally start trusting the government to conduct massive infrastructure, spend money on technology and science and the school system.
6. You also said it yourself the reason behind strong black middle class communities in the country was government contracts and infrastructure developments.(conduct by the government, pushed by progressive mayors)
7.Do us all a favor pay you fair share of taxes.
8. Miss me with that libertarian talk
9. Give me one example of a country with sustainable economy built on the private sector. One...I will wait.
Pure garbage!!!!!!!!!!!Yousef Araba
The number of times Mr. Peebles was interrupted and talked over. Unreal. The interview was painful to watch, but I suffered through it because Mr. Peebles exercised such tact & class in dealing with it.Siana Campbell
Nice....Capital and ConciousnessJason Clokes
This interview is not that hard to decipher. THE POWER OF A PEOPLE IS IN THEIR ECONOMIC POWER!!! BEEN SAYING THIS!!! WHITE PEOPLE HAD A 400 YEAR HEADSTART WITH FREE LABOR!! WAKE UP, CATCH UP, READ BUSINESS BOOKS, READ REAL ESTATE BOOKS, ACT ON YOUR BUSINESSES IDEAS. "THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE IS IN THEIR ECONOMIC POWER"Jason Clokes
Unity is an illusion. So-called black are not american. The purpose of so-called blacks has never changed. To work. To do the jobs white american don't want to do. To expect anything different is insanity. You are american citizens. Not americans. You're not a family member. You have rights to what the family owns. You ill never have the privileges white Americans have. So-called blacks are a nation of people that will only succeed as a NATION. You cannot trust or expect your enemy to give you power over them.Arsene Remy
As a baby boomer it is always refreshing to see people of color especially our black men doing well and remembering their roots. Congratulations to you both for the positive role models you are for others. I see this video was published in April and a lot has transpired in the last few months. I watched this video with mixed emotions and when I got up this morning I felt the need to comment particularly in light of the fact that my young handsome intelligent nephew provided me with this link as a defense for his political stand. Unfortunate for us we have two candidates that may not be ideal candidates. Nonetheless we have to pick one. In my opinion Hillary Clinton is the best choice. If we were only concern about economics perhaps Donald Trump could be considered but there is much more at stake here and Donald Trump is clearly NOT the man for the job. His long list of character flaws puts him in a category of his own and he has encouraged the most evil side of America to raise its ugly head. So to put Hillary down is NOT the answer... We NEED to vote her in and then get off our A.... and make our voices heard to help bring about the change we need. Donald Trump is NOT the person for the change we need. I am not strictly republican or democrat I vote based on character, principles and what I see as the person's ability to perform the duties of the leader of this country. Ok... enough said I am sure there will be some who disagree but that is the beauty of freedom having the freedom to agree to disagree... On more thing to add... in today's climate the bullet from a bad cop does NOT care how wealthy or educated you are if you are black... the recent killing of an innocent black man is just more proof.. I only reference this because there was a comment in the video about certain class of black men getting shot down (don't recall the exact term/phrase used)... so when you arrive as a black guy you always still have to look back to watch your back...M. Coleman
What nation is Africa-America and where is it? Can I buy a ticket to Africa-America? The #1 problem is we don't know who we are.We don't know our history or future. We've accepted an Identity and false religion forced on us by our fore-fathers slave master and we teach it to our children. Freedom, in every are begins with discovering your true nationality and thee identity that comes with it. A few may find financial freedom here and there, mostly as clowning entertainers for white america. Spectacles. What we need is a wave, a breakthrough in national freedom... that will NOT come from your oppressors and enemies.Joshua Israel
Mr. Peebles is a class act, an outstanding human being and an exceptional business man. Many excellent topics and feedback was covered in this interview. I would only hope a followup interview would discuss his blueprint to RE development or his prognosis on the future of black business and what trends we are heading into. This man is a wealth of information and such information needs to be shared. Great interview, only one thing, when someone is speaking, it is not polite to interrupt them, let them get their point out. Mr. Peebles demonstrates this, when interrupted, he stops speaking. Great overall interview and look towards more gems.Louie Tzepher
Excellent conversation. I love Don Peebles and the Real Estate Development Empire that he's built; he spoke honestly and candidly. We must be treated like human beings and demand that the fundamental issues of the American Dream be available for all of us. I'm moving to New York if he becomes their next Mayor!Ramonda E. Fields
Don Peebles is a great human being. Very inspiring he's always advocating for equal access to economic opportunity, education, protection, politics and jobs for people of color, for those reason I respect him greatly.. Thanks for posting this interview.yezefen neger
