So many(not all) here have been deceived and are now on automatic. Deceived by whom? The devil, who is no respecter of color, but will use color(nee race) to further his ultimate goal of separating men from God as he himself is. Rap(for the most part) is an effective instrument whereby the devil plants the seeds of negativity and continually cultivates them until those who imbibe are led to destruction. These seeds of negativity are(in part):
Greed
Adultery
Constant references to sex, freakiness, etc.
Lack of committment
Wasting time/Being a sluggard
Drug addiction as being positive
Being free(as in not wanting responsibility)
Making babies(like making a sandwich....same thing)
Getting something for nothing
Name calling
Blaming "Whitey"
Playing the race card
Going nowhere with nothing to do
Wasting money
Disdain for authority
The constant repetition of these messages are creating serious evil in the world. Many will deny it, but such is the nature of addition. Many have and will continue to put a positive spin on it calling it "keeping it real" and other pet phrases which makes satan happy and keeps the sheep "skinning and grinning".
Why do what seems like 99% of Black Women prefer the hair of others rather than themselves? Don't say because it's easier to manage because people will jump through some serious hoops if they feel it contributes to elevating their self esteem and from what I can see, the hair of the African isn't one of them. HOLD ON!!!
Some of what you stated was in fact true. One example I'd agree with you on is the fact that satan does use music and ideolism as a source to do evil by sending mixed and sinful messages for it's listeners or for it's followers to interpret. However did you know that when a musician or artist becomes successful he or she is literally signing his soul over to Satan. Even Gospel singers are not exempt from this. But understand that only "some" is the key word and not all. Gods artist are also in this mix you are generalizing unconvincingly. You really lost me when you went off into the childish rant about black women, hair and how it supposedly elevates their esteem when black women in the masses go to beauty salons by the boatload and usually don't come out with there hair styled down like a becky come on what world are you living in.

They try to control and run it now. Hip-hop is our culture. Many of the really great R & B , hip-hop, and rap artists that we like don't get awarded at those shows. Rihanna usually gets everything in the R & B category but there are many female R & B artists that sing better and in my opinion, have better music. When it comes to hip-hop you will never see Tupac or Nas win anything over a white rapper who can't even half way rap well or a black rapper who talks about how much he loves white girls and has a million of them in his videos. WHO CARES ABOUT THE GRAMMY'S
Fcuk the Grammys and Fcuk white people.

Do your own Grammys and run your own businesses. Simple.

Black Pride,

You have "some" good perceptions. But if you want to broaden your audience, you may want to reconsider your headline: " Dat wuz F***ed up " because it is a phrase that denotes a young and immature mindset. You can do better.

Also, what are the differences and similarities between Black Pride and White Pride? What are the pros and cons of each?

Thanks in advance.

This so true! That was black rappers first slap in the face to black female fans. Black men in their videos, replaced black women with white women, Latinas and even Asian women with a few light skin and biracial women hanging in there in but then the black rappers got rid of even most of the light skin and biracial women also. Black rappers purposely created an unrealistic world with their videos of only them, black men with white women and other nonblack women. Black women virtually disappeared. Black female fans should have withdraw all of their support and boycotted black rappers right and there then. Stupidazz black rappers should have realized that by adding nonblack women to their rap music, performances and videos that it was only a matter of time before those nonblack women's same race men were going to start rapping also.

Now black rappers are being replaced by white rappers, well boo boo who, lol ! Black men did the exact thing in their own rap videos by deleting most black women dancers and replacing them white and other nonblack women. It seems black men can't take what they can dish out. I remember when I was a teenager back in the day, the first white rapper had jealous, insecure black rappers enrage! His easy flowing rap and chiseled good looks had the black women swooning back then. The black men hated it and tried to destroy him.

Exactly! Black men help to make rap cultural diverse because they put nonblack women in them but were not wise enough to realize this was giving white men and other nonblack men a foot in the door. White men have created and keep so many successful things
solely their own. Yet the biggest creation of black men, they let slip through their fingers trying to get next to nonblack tail. So I say to white men take rap, run with and make it your own! Because black rappers where dumb enough to just hand it over to you.

You're right they are dumb and they take everything at face value.Why would young white men want to watch endless videos of white strippers draped around black men,they want to see themselves onscreen.
Black men are now celebrating the fact that Pharrell Williams doesn't have any black women on his new album cover.Saying black women are jealous and he has the right choose want he wants.The same Pharrell that produces music for Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke instead of Usher.Where is the black equivalent of Justin Bieber ?

I agree. Many black men think the white men who listen to rap and watch rap videos, want to them but these white men sees themselves with the video dancers. Wm know that they born with more social status and opportunities so there is no way they want to be or look like back men. Most black men will rejoice in anything they see as excluding black women especially by another black man, without realizing that this is to their own detriment also. True there won't be a black Bieber or Timberlake because when white men get into the mix they can go further with it than black men can.

Ok, is that because you don't like the word swoon(by ecstatic joy) or when it's used in reference to black women? Because all races of women have swooned over a specific male celebrity at on time or another be it white women swooning over Brad Pitt or Justin Timberlack or black women swooning over Babyface or Will Smith.

Now how do you think those white men are born with more social status?
How can the US that's a sh.it hole with no resources able to thrive the way it is for a few years now?
In a nutshell, you are stating the obvious that we already know. How stupid can you ever be.
To be honest, one should just allow Black women to speak and see how foolish you all sound altogether. You have answer your own question that you've been asking for years, even.
You are just plain stupid!
Touche??? I think Einstein, that you either touch or touched. Of course I am stating the obvious but the obvious fact never stop some foolish sounding black men from claiming that white men envy them. You are the stupid one.

Both Conjurer and I were just trying to stop you from making an even bigger fool of yourself than you already have but I guess like in the circus, the clowns must go on. You probably won't understand what that means either.
