Ron Artest shared pearls of wisdom with today’s youth as part of his community service punishment for inciting a brawl last year:

“Someone started trouble and I ended it,” Artest told about 50 children Wednesday at a panel on black empowerment at the Judge Mathis Community Center. “I would always encourage you to protect yourself but in certain situations, if you can avoid them, avoid them.”

Ron also touched on issues of divorce and it’s impact on children:

“I was very sad and I always wished they got back together, but they’re not,” Artest said. “If that happens to anybody, you have to worry about yourself. You can’t worry about your parents at that time, because obviously they aren’t thinking about you, they’re thinking about themselves.”

Obviously.

Who’s next in talking to Detroit’s urban youth? Is Mike Tyson giving a talk on sexual health?
