MLK would turn over in his grave if he could see the culture of criminal losers that have been created from the false bogus garbage race pimping of the left.

It's true for the most part since black teens are so caught up with trying to live the lavish and edgy lifestyles like those rappers they try and imitate. They drop out of high school in hopes that they can be successful like some of those rappers with rarely any success. They need to wake up and realize that there's more to lie than being a rapper, athlete, and etc. and they need to have a backup plan that they can fall back on if they don't become successful. Being a rapper or athlete doesn't help improve the black community or create more job opportunities for black people.

It is the low IQ and evolutionary byproducts that holds them back. Rap music is just a manifestation of the frustration of living in an advanced western style society under the white mans laws and principles and not in the jungle.

I see little difference between dancing besides a fire in the jungle whooping and hollering, and supposed rap!

I consider both the same!

Entertainment is really the only legal way for blacks to become rich. As everyone knows, they don't have the brains for business or science.

Wow you people are pathetic. Blame music for why kids drop out of school. Why don't you blame the parents for not being there teaching their kids that it is very unlikely they will get famous off music?
Hip hop is a billion dollar a year industry. How many people you think that employs?
Say all you want about the lyrics but I guarantee you can't name me one song where the rapper tells children to go kill people, drop out of school or sell drugs. In fact most of them tell kids to stay in school and don't follow their path.
But besides that this is just another thread for the closet racists to spew their hatred of other people that don't look like them. All you have to do is read the posts above and see.
What is sad is all you closet racists speak racism and apparently don't even know it because all you want to do is say that you are being unfairly stereotyped but you aren't. Your rhetoric screams racism and besides the fact I have ZERO respect for any type of discrimination, I have less respect for most of you because even on a computer screen you are too pansy to admit you are racist.
I could at least respect you all being men and admitting you don't like minorities.

And that's because they don't have that 4% Neanderthal DNA!

Instead they have the 4% APE DNA!

There is no scientific discovery saying blacks have ape DNA. But the white scientific finding is announcing to the world that white people are the results of subhumans mating.

Neanderthals are NOT sub human. They had a greater cranial capacity than Homo Sapiens. Homo Erectus however...

Homo Erectus??? Someone's been peeking into the "Big Word" dictionary. Oh, and what did I tell you about post photos of your ex boyfriends on this forum?
