Rap music provides a cultural center for black youth, teaching them what urban life is about, how to survive, to do what they must do, and to prepare for an even more difficult adulthood in a world filled with white masters who never let blacks achieve anything. Until blacks are allowed to succeed and are repaid for their years of enslavement, they are going to continue to rely on rap music as a tool for survival.

America shouldn't rely on article such as this to dictate actual truth. The media has used and abused its means of studies to demean American black people in a whole as long as America has been in existence. Anytime they want to evoke something they start relating studies. So I quess the subliminal message here is for the black youth to start killing each other. As a nation of people we need to relate positive attributes. Publish accomplishments of the black youths. There are some very outstanding young black individuals that are striving to achieve.In my opinion, negativity begets negativity.

Agree 100%.
Rap music is full of filthy lyrics and is degrading to women.

Why do people always give criminals an excuse?
Why is it always someone else's fault?

NOw when the stats show the disproportionate number of black men compared to white men in prison the black leaders will cry out Racism.

Gun control does not work.
Drug laws do not work.
Laws against stealing and murder do not work.

The same people that empathize with the murdering criminal will ridicule an honest God fearing tax paying citizen.

The minute anyone speaks out against the murdering pukes they are shouted down as racist..

When the Italian hoods were terrorizing the people in the early 1900's, noone hesitated to call them "F*KING DAGO SONSABYCHES" ...Because they WERE.

Here come the gun guys--to tell us this proves we need more guns. ;)

FUN FACT: The violent crime rate in England has dropped precipitously since they cracked down on guns.(Gun guys will tell you the crime rate has gone up in England, but, as always, they're full of crap.)

Because there is a culture of stupidity that cares more about the "rights" of violent criminals than the rights of the people they murder. I don't care what color someone's skin is, if they murder someone in cold blood, the state should return the favor. If the murder is caught on video and the perpetrator is positively recognizable, then there should be no appeals. Try 'em, convict 'em, and shove a needle into their arms.

What about the 12 Americans killed every day by illegal aliens? Skin color is irrelevant.

Notice the photo of some handguns instead of the real culprit-BLACK MALES!
In Switzerland every male over 18 must have a MACHINEGUN in his home for national defense,yet there are no problems with mayhem and savagery that we in the US have.
Blacks are our problem,they rape,rob and steal more than any other race on the planet.
Unil we can deport them,there will be no impovements in our rates of crime.

What personal experience do you base all of this on?

It sounds like you are quoting Pravda.

If you arent American, then please stay out of our business. How can you comment from 5000 miles away? F off! Besides, blacks are allowed to succeed; look at our new president-elect you freakin moron. Look at all the black athletes that are way more successful than most Americans. Our CURRENT secretary of state! Our last sec of state! All black! The problems with race are too hard for a foreigner to understand. And please show me ONE modern day slave that the US Gov owes money to as a result of slavery! Every culture used slaves at one point in time. Africans started slavery, and sold their own people into slavery. They JUST found an old Spanish Slave ship off the coast of Jamaica. Hmmm, Spanish people had slaves too? OMG! English had em, Italians had em, sandies even had em.

Speaking of Condoleezza Rice, I think she deserves a LOT of credit for standing by GWB for his entire 8 years in Hell.

Granted she was National Security advisor in the first term, but she has been beside him all along.
