Meanwhile that cultural rot called "hip hop" continues to glorify these gangsta punks as it condones every uncivil and criminal act up to and including murder. Great message for impressionable young people eh? Anybody really surprised by the continuing carnage? Not me!
RIP GERALD

Yes, these people, these so-called Gangsters, are simply misguided wannabes. But, it is not just Gangster Rap or Hip Hop. Nope. America, and the world has a long tradition of ignorant wannabes doing this exact same crap. Look at the Catholic Church.
The real problem is that people should not be allowed to have children, because they teach their children to act like wannabe gangsters and Catholics, and police, and every other traditional corrupted social role.
Gangsters, the police, the church, the government, it is all just a tradition of evil bigots. If you support these structures, you should just shut up and take it.
