The lyrics to Cain and Abel are positive...no ghetto speak. No talk of rape or murdering cops or glorifying the "hood."

Unlike gangsta rap...

Vanilla Ice and his ilk are just wiggers. There's plenty of that type around who look up to the "hood" lifestyle. Disgusting, wouldn't you agree?

However, he doesn't rap anymore. He now renovates homes...large expensive ones.

BTW did Cain get involved in murder?
so now that rap is not enough you want to move the goalposts to gangsta rap.
so take a Texas folk song based on the poem " "The Trail's End"
"If a policeman is killed in Dallas
and they have no clue or guide.
If they can't find a fiend,
they just wipe their slate clean
and hang it on Bonnie and Clyde"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonnie_and_Clyde

shocking that Mel Torme wrote a song glorifying the pair.
remember
" The gang is believed to have killed at least nine police officers and committed several civilian murders."

or Merle Haggard who wrote a country song about them as well.
country music glorifying the lifestyle of murders?
what is the world coming to.

and a festival is held
"Every year near the anniversary of the ambush, a "Bonnie and Clyde Festival" is hosted in the town of Gibsland, off Interstate 20 in Bienville Parish."

gee guess murdering cops is glorified in rural areas.
does that make them "disgusting" in your view?

one can find all kinds of music that deals with various crimes and conditions in this world.
sometimes the "hood" is a little larger.

I'm far from an expert on rap, but I think it was clear I meant black rappers - not all, but many.

i got the intent and Christian rap was used more for sarcasm.
musicians go over the line just as preachers,politicians,pundits, etc.
so when that individual goes over the line the whole genre is evil?
the free market decides whether genres of music are successful.

i have no real interest in rap music but for those that do--it is their choice.

I agree. I only brought up rap lyrics to validate the claim that ebonics is common to every black urban area. I think it is.

I did to with the Tupac lyrics. He is glorified in the "hood," but dumbar doesn't get it. He is the Gangsta God.

so now is it ok to glorify murdering cops (ala bonnie & clyde)?
or does that glorification get a pass?
your concerned about profanity?
so your priorities are that bad language is more heinous than murdering cops?
well that is your choice.
just as it is your choice not to listen to rap music.
comic books and rock music in the past were supposed to lead to the demise of the American way at one time.
The Republic managed to survive the onslaught of Spiderman.
WHERE did I ever say that? You are really a loon, dumbar.

The black thug crowd glorifies Tupac to the point of a deity.

This music has certainly led to the demise of black neighborhoods in our big cities, like Philly and your leader's Chicago which had more murders last year than soldiers lost in Afghanistan in a war zone!

you said"This music has certainly led to the demise of black neighborhoods in our big cities"

music led to a decline?
hardly.

so everything would be peachy if kids listened to mel torme without his song about bonnie and clyde?

you have to exclude that song as who wants to glorify cop killers.
music is music.
do entertainers go over the line certainly.
blaming the genre makes no sense.

Dr. King was a great man, a pioneer in equal rights and a Nobel Peace Prize recipient. Yes, he spoke Southern English! He was from Atlanta Georgia. what would you expect? At least he didn't say: "Iz gots dis drem homey...Daz ya feelz me?". Do you get it? Oh well, maybe not!

I don't think it's a white - black thing. My dad was white and grew up in the rural South. When we went to visit, he could understand every word the blacks said. He could even understand the Geechs who lived way back in the woods, although I couldn't understand everything that group said.

I think you nailed English! It's your word "DUMB"! My point exactly! Black, white or whatever. If you speak that way you will be branded immediately by articulate people of all races as being incapable of carrying on an intelligent conversation!
