THUG CULTURE IS A CANCER DESTROYING BLACK AMERICA

Why is it only black people can talk bad about other black people?

If a white person wrote this article they would be called a racist.

If Rush Limbaugh went around saying the things Bill Cosby says he would be called a racists and people would demand his removal from the air.

Don Imus says ?nappy headed hoes? and he has to be removed from the air, but black rappers say things ten times worse on a daily basis and no one calls for their removal from the air waves.

Parts of the black community are a total disaster, but if any white person tries to point this out they get attacked. So called black leaders need to spend less time chasing high profile black outrage cases (Duke, Jenna 6, Katrina, the Columbia noose thing) and spend more time trying to clean up their own home.

from "Hurt," by T.I., featuring Alfamega and Busta Rhymes

Clifford Harris Jr. would have been celebrated last Saturday night at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, had he made it to the ceremony. Instead, he was in police custody, charged with illegal possession of firearms.

The young rapper could have stood before a cheering audience in downtown Atlanta and accepted his award for Best CD of the Year, had he steered clear of machine guns and silencers. Instead, he was handcuffed, fingerprinted, photographed, incarcerated.

But the violence isn't just playacting; it's not just teenagers trying on a rebellious facade. Young adults -- many of them men, most of them black -- get arrested. They go to prison. They die on the streets.

There is now a cottage industry dedicated to defending rap music, a group of enablers who glorify hard-core rap as a legitimate art form reflecting the bitter real-life experiences of ghetto inhabitants. But I have no patience for the academic exegeses. This so-called music and the lifestyle it glorifies is a malignancy destroying black America. What does it take for mothers and fathers, ministers and teachers, music executives and TV moguls to turn it off?

Plus I got a hundred goons wit me

from "Hurt"

Last year, T.I. attended the funeral of Philant Johnson, 26, his best friend and personal assistant, who was shot dead in a gun battle among moving cars on I-75 near Cincinnati. Police said the gunfire followed an argument involving unidentified locals and T.I.'s entourage at a Cincinnati nightclub. If Harris had regrets about Johnson's death, they apparently didn't manifest as pacifism. He kept a small arsenal at his Atlanta home, according to police.
The criminal justice system -- notorious for grinding black men down -- gave the young rapper T.I. a second chance after he was convicted for selling cocaine. Not only has he launched a highly successful music career, but he has also won notice as an actor. He has a role in the new movie "American Gangster," starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe.

But given that second chance, what did Harris do? If he had machine guns, as police say, at whom did he intend to point them?

Homicide is the leading cause of death among black men between the ages of 15 and 30. And it is a fratricidal enterprise. Young black men are killed by other young black men.

You should hear the things a friend of 10 years (he's black) tells about what his circle of friends say in their own circle. It's disgusting.

The Fall Of The Republic. Thanks, government and banking industry for intentionally screwing America.

I know it is a problem in black culture but I am not blaming the white people or the man for my mistakes. We must come together and fix this problem. But it is crime going on white culture to. I do not like rappers that disrespect women and make crime look good. I am black woman that believe that no one is the blame for what is going wrong in my life but me. I do not see color as problem . I see people as the problem. You can learn from anyone if you are willing to listen. Help me to help the world by helping each other to see color is not situation.

You sound reasonable. Do yourself a favor and dump black culture. Do your own thing and you may find a good white man to bang around with. You gals have some nice bootys. Just hard to break you out of that ghetto culture.

Guns escalate the problem. Some Americans think that it keeps you safe, but really it just endangers everyone. Race is not the problem here. An underlying culture of violence in all parts of America is the problem. People should as what can I do to help other people. Ask how can I make my culture more accepting and peaceful. You glorify violence. Your society wastes large amounts of money on weapons that are not suited for modern war. You don't look after the poor by providing proper social benefits for the unemployed. Poverty and lack of opportunity lead to violence. You waste enormous amounts of money on an obsolete military machine instead of taking care of your own people. Get rid of guns. Dismantle your obsolete war machine. This is not liberal thinking, this is the tough path back to peace. You don't put a fire out by poring petrol on it.

I am a black male. I have 2 children, one of the is a young boy. I have zero tolerance for ignorance from the black community. Whether it is rap, loud ghetto people on tv, or black racist and cry babies. I teach my children to respect their home which is the first community they're a part of and then they have the foundation to go out and make solid contribution to the larger community/society.

Rap reeks havoc upon young impressionable minds. Young people that are pawns in the destruction of the family unit. A lot of young people are disrespectful and believe they are entitled to things that they have not worked for. They are programmed haters.

There may come a time, where law enforcement and community leaders just start eliminating the worst from the herd.....if unable to act like humans, then animal control must be activated......bet crime would surely fall, if the bad guys just started disappearing?

When asked to explain what Hip Hop consists of, the majority of kids list violence and gangs as being elements of Hip Hop.

When asked to list what their favorite artists rap about, the overwhelming majority list guns, sex, violence, cars, thugs, jewelry, and money as popular topics.

When asked to name rappers with positive lyrics, most kids name Drake, Tupac, and Kendrick Lamar (within the last year) but seem unaware of any others.

When asked to name female rappers, the overwhelming majority can only think of Nicki Minaj.

When asked if rap music influences them, the majority say yes.

When asked if they know anyone who tries to emulate what rappers do, 99% say they know one or more people who do.

The majority of girls say that most boys seem to learn how to treat girls from their favorite rappers.

The majority of boys say that rap music has taught them that girls cannot be trusted.

Over half of kids use slang they picked up from the newest songs in their everyday conversations.

99% of kids get all of their music for free. Most have never even owned a CD.
The majority of kids only know commercial rappers and aren’t very familiar with the underground scene.

Most kids don’t realize that they can use the internet to discover new artists and end up only acknowledging rappers who top the charts.

Half of all youth state that they’ve never heard rappers use big words.
The overwhelming majority of incarcerated youth say they listen to “gangsta shit” to pump them up to get high or commit a crime.

Over half of incarcerated youth refer to rappers who glorify negativity (ex: Chief Keef, Gucci Mane, Lil’ Boosie, 2 Chainz, etc) as “real sh^t” while rappers whose content is more progressive are labeled “weak” or “corny”.

Over half of incarcerated youth dream of becoming rap stars when they get out of jail.

During rap writing sessions, most kids write about the same topics commercial artists rap about. 99% of incarcerated youth have an extremely difficult time writing about anything else besides the streets.

Half of incarcerated youth say that slow and bass heavy instrumentals (trap music) inspire them to do negative things. They say “something” in the beat has an effect on them.
