i love watching mtv's show "cribs".
ever see some of the mansions these rappers live in, ALL paid for by the stupid people who listen and support them.
they enjoy ripping off their own people and then show off all their bling, cars, cribs, and their follows all eat it up. fools

It's funny too because if one of these individuals were to be shot and killed, there families and the afro american community would say they were good kids and talk about all this nonsense. Now if the police were to shoot at these individuals, CRY LORD from the black community. SAVAGES ARE SAVAGES..

These are Sharptons People!! Come back to this Planet in 1000 years and they will still be the same (probably worse) than they are now. You can dress 'em up and give 'em money. I don't let my kids play their Jungle Music in my House. I remind them that they are White and they should be listening to real music performed by civilized Human Beings. Blacks are low class and always will be.

I don't think any of them goes around with a "posse" (Black for i'm not really a Man so I need to travel with a gang of Thugs) threatening poeple with guns. They also wrote music, They didn't steal soundbytes off of a computer and call it their own creation. They also made great contributions to Society. What can you say about your Gangsters?

Not all rappers are gangsters. It's artists like the one's who appeared in court today that have given a bad name to real "artists" that like many other musicians, regardless of race, make music because of sheer creative ability. Would you stop listening to pop music just because Phil Spector killed(allegedly) his wife? The dude wrote songs for the Beatles for God's sake!

elvis died of a massive drug overdose and so did cobain.must i say more asshole?white men continue to molest little boys and girls.whiteboys shooting up schools everyday.just two weeks ago a whiteboy was arrested for video taping himself screwing a 2 year old (what a fine citizen).Megan's law, Katie's law, all of these laws were passed because of whiteboys raping little boys and girls.when it comes to murderers whites own the title (bundy,gacy,mcveigh,dahmer,una bomber,manson,btk etc...) when it comes to child molesters go no further than your local white priest.so tell me again about decent people.I know, just cast them off as white trash.they are still white.my point is crime and indecency is not limited to one race asshole,so lick my nuts

First thing, Cobain shot himself. And you're right about the serial killers and Megan's law, etc. However, the white community does not glorify these acts, we seek to distance ourselves from them. The black community on the other hand considers drug dealers, robbers, and murderers to be spokesmen for the community. Bill Cosby and Alvin Poussaint are villified while the 4 people mentioned in the article are held up as pillars of society. The black community protests outside the homes of white network executives who they say are promoting the wrong image. The protestors take the victim mentality and refuse to address the problem from within. As long as young black men continue to emulate the gangster lifestyle the entire community will be grouped in with them.
