You can tell by my Benz, by my BM, and my Hummer



General Motors officially loves black people. Trying to boost sales in their "underperforming market," GM opened two car dealerships on 127th Street between 2nd and 3rd. Hummers, Cadillacs, Saturns, and Chevrolets. Exactly what Harlem needs more of.

The opening ceremony included Jesse Jackson, a jazz band, and a "soul food buffet." Can I get the 24 inch stereotypes with my whip? About 150 jobs will be added to Harlem's "economy."

Bloomberg exclaimed, "Harlem is undergoing an incredible renaissance, and the fact that General Motors decided to open one of the city's largest auto dealerships here speaks volumes." Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Nella Larsen, Claude McKay, Duke Ellington be damned. We got the new Hummer H1 Alpha.

VIK,
G.M. needs to open a community day care center across the street from its dealership, then again, all they will teach the babies is how to become better consumers as sdults.

if you get the chance, please peep a film by Ralph Bakshi called 'Streetfight' or it may be titled 'Coonskin'.

It was released during the blaxploitation era and was subsequently banned because it was thought that it would start riots in the Black community.

GM put Slum Village in their ads. "EZ Up" was the theme for the new Impala. They have had Snoop's songs in their ads and a Lee Iacocca ad with Snoop co-starring. Dogg is a sellout of the highest order.

Also your man Mos Def was seen selling GMC's Envoy a couple months back, the ad had HEAVY rotation on NBA fastbreak and shit like that.
