Just because I find you attractive doesnt mean I like you. You appeal to my eyes, not my heart or mind. It’s not that deep.
My roommate and I have had far too much coffee and I think our neighbors hate us
WHO DID THIS
Nas Helps Raise Over $30,000 For A Homeless Single Father With 8 KidsFor many, Nas is just a rapper but to the Young family, he is a hero.
This week, Nas came across the story of Stanley Young, a single father of 8 children who had lost his home to a fire, on the news and he decided to start a campaign to help the family find a new home.
In a message submitted to the fundraising site Crowdtilt, Nas wrote:
Stanley Young is an unemployed construction worker and single father. Two weeks ago, a fire destroyed his home. His family is stuck in a hotel, but time is running out. I could barely watch his tragic story on the news…– they will be kicked out by August 13th if we don’t do something to help now.I am also a single father, and we don’t get enough credit in this country. I’m committed to helping Stanley and his eight (yes 8!) kids. Moreover, I believe and hope that we should all, as a community, come together to help our fellow American men and women when they need us in desperate situations like this. See if you can’t find a few dollars to help the Youngs get back on their feet with me. We need to raise enough to extend their stay, and maybe even afford a down payment on a new house or something.
This is real. It is me. I’m putting in $5,000 myself. Never done something like this, but I have faith that our American community can pull together a miracle for this strong family who needs our help right now. If we can get to the $20,000 goal, I’ll put in another $5,000 too.
Thanks and God bless.
As of this morning, Nas has helped raise almost $35,000, and is looking to raise at least $50,000 by August 13, which is the date that Stanley and his family will be required to vacate the hotel they are living in.
Meanwhile, Stanley was taken aback by all the support. He told ABC 7:
So many people just came out of nowhere and put out money and we were blown away. It’s been surprising how much they did within a couple of hours. That is so amazing to me. It’s overwhelming. He don’t have to do what he had to do. People, strangers I don’t even know, never met before in my life, are helping and that’s amazing.
And Nas added:
Thank you to ABC for putting this on our radar so we know about this. We just knew we had to do something. I’m grateful to Stanley. He’s the true American dream. A man who would do whatever it takes to take care of his kids. I’m the same way and I just think he’s great.
Nas is in direct contact with Stanley and his family, and they are hoping that the $50,000 will help the Youngs find a permanent place to live versus a temporary solution.
If you are wondering about the kids’ mom, she passed away last year, which makes the story even more heartbreaking.

"Django Unchained" actress Danièle Watts says she was accosted by police and handcuffed on Thursday in Los Angeles after being mistaken for a prostitute. Watts, who played house slave "CoCo" in "Dj…
Wow. A black woman kisses her husband who is white and gets arrested by the police because they think that a relationship between a black woman and a white guy is prostitution.
We can’t do anything in this damn country without them jumping to the worst conclusion. Notice how they didn’t try to arrest the white husband though.And they say racism is dead!!!! I hope she is okay now and safely amongst her lovers one.
But what did her husband do???
White girls trying hard.
White woman perpetuating racist and sexist stereotypes of East Asian women. People need to stop claiming white women are innocent, they’re just as dangerous and violent as white men.
Her comment is a bit odd, BUT SHE’S IN FUCKING COSPLAY.
Thanks for letting us know you are also a racist who condones harmful, hypersexualized stereotypes along with her comments which are not just “a bit odd” but very fucking racist including her use of “engrish”. Cosplay does not negate her racism nor yours.
