Thats too little too late consiering he and NWA are directly responsible for glorifying gang violence. NWA was the first mainstream group to make being a gangster popular. Knowing what I know now I should have thrown there tape out the window of my car.I think what he is trying to do is a good thing but they started this crap in the first place.

It is NOT hatred to relay the well known statistic that blacks commit 80% of the murders,rapes,robbeies and assaults.
I you spent more time reading papers instead of watching garbage like MTV you would know this to be true.
Facts are not "hatred".
Was it "hate" against Germans to recognize that Germans evicted the Jews in the 40's?
Nor is it hatred to recognize that blacks are the predators of this land.
care to dispute these facts? the FACT is that you are a racist and nothing anyone says or does is going to change your warp mind.

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)

DMA your a stupid f n idiot, how about the black minister in MD that was having sex with his daughter, go to the state website and look up the convicted sex offenders there are tons of black rapist and molesters. You need to spout off some bs to make your self feel good but the truth is what it is, the black community has more violence on a daily basis than whites by far with the exception of the dumb white kids that want to be black thanks to gangster rap. So look at you own before you consider a whole race pervs. IDIOT!

DMA - Before you say what you dont know go look on the site, there are not more white than black but since you know everything without really knowing anything I guess you think you are right. Typical ignorant black a hole attitude, I guess you think the english went to africa with a large fish net and just stole slaves? When the truth is they were sold by other african tribes to the white man. But I guess that is not true either... huh? Why dont you look into facts before you talk chit. IDIOT.
I hope you are taken care of by one of you own kind. THUG LIFE right?

I don't judge people by race.. every person is there own. I'm white but guess what so is just about every serial kill in history. Most were white males, look BTK killer, Manson Family, John Wayne Gacey, Ted Bundy, Ed Gein, and Jeffrey Dahmer just to name a few. No I'm not saying damn white people are sh**, you can look at Stanley Williams or Raymond Washington, they started the Crip gang, which led to Bloods, G.D., and Vice Lords, but I don't think blacks are Sh** either. It's a personal choice and sometimes you're put in a position where your best choice isn't a good one.Choose who you wanna be. As for anonymous I know what you're saying bro. I grew up in the projects Of downtown Tampa, Florida, and nothing in my life was easy growing up, I had to do what I had to do. So for everyone reading this there's no black thing, there's no white thing, It's up to the individual.

yeah but just think if these parents are soooo concerned then why not make sure your kids dont watch it see i have twins who are malado and do i let them watch these videos,HELL YEAH why, because i am smart enough to show them and lead them in the right direction there father who is a NON active gang member also sits down and explains to them the rights and wrongs of the videos.. so lets not put it all on the rappers what about the parents?

you say your kids are model citizens? that is when you are around we all have things that we don't know that our kids have done.hey i'm glad they are doing well in school i aint knockin that. all i'm saying is if you don't like the music or videos and the message they send then maybe you should step out of your fancy house and $90,000 dollar car and get a reality check.you say you teach your kids every thing they need to know then you can teach them that there really are people who have to live like that,show them the other side of the tracks,so they don't have to learn the hard way..smart ass.

wtf are you talking about? you are going off on some stupid tantrum making absolutely no sense. teach them the other side of the tracks? are you obtuse or just retarded. They arent spoiled kids and are fully aware of what it is to be poor because I make sure they see it. really I dont know what you are getting at.

Yeah, the black kind.
Rappers have contributed greatly to this problem by glamorizing the thug life to kids.
Do we really want America's First Hip-hop President? Just look what came of "America's First Hip-hop Mayor" out in Detroit, yo. Look at just about every city run by the brothas and the sistas...
Don't be so square, there is nothing 'hip-hop' about Obama...he's straight up 'Ivy leauge'...
