I like his album. Its a shame he was part of the culture he is now trying to combat. One of the front-runners. Maybe he feels guilty.

Oh please tell your kind to stop molesting innocent children, tell your women teachers to stop having sex with their students, to stop watching kiddie porn, to stop commiting mass murders and then like the cowards that you are kill yourself because you can't stand the consequences for what you did. Bunch of sick pervs.

You are quite right. That was the theme for the MOVIE as a whole. Ice Cube himself played a gang banger and a drug dealer. These kids dont see the message anymore, they just look at what kind of role you are playing.

Very true. Remember his old rap groups? NWA (N****s With Attitude), Westside Connection, etc? They made MILLIONS off gun violence, gang activity, and promoting thug culture... Now it's come back in bit them in the behind.
How about parents start raising their kids right and the black community having positive role models like doctors and scientists instead of Lil Wayne, Lil Peezy and such. D*** shame, but they can't blame anyone but themselves.

see this whole ignorant rant right here is why we have a racism in this country. blacks are NOT monolithic many blacks are out there leading positive lives and teaching there kids to do so. do you even know any blacks? you sir are an idiot read and learn if you can:

The myth: More college-aged black men are in jail than in college.
The film says: More black men 18-24 are actually in college (469,000) as compared to prison (180,000).
What we found: In 2005, there were 106,000 black men (18-24) in prison.(Bureau of Justice Statistics)
And 402,000 full time black male college students, 71,000 part time.(US Census)

The myth: 1 out of 2 black men do not graduate high school.
The film says: 74.2 percent of black men graduate high shcool
What we found: 79.5 percent of black males 18 years and over are high school graduates or higher.(US Census) But for black males 18-19 years old 53% have not graduated high school. The high 79% number shows that eventually they do get a diploma or equivalency.

The myth: 1 out of 3 black men are incarcerated.
The film says: It's only 290,000 out of 16,794,000 black men who are incarcerated.
What we found: In 2005, there were 547,200 black males in prison out of a total population of 24,315,000 black men in 2002.(BJS/US Census)
