I'm saying anybody and everybody. The moment these rappers started degrading our women glorifying crime that should've been it they should've been ostracized. Take it further than that when Nicki minaj calls our women nappy headed hoes ostracized. They shouldn't get a buffalo nickel from the black community.
Thats bullsh*t though, thats like saying that Jimmi Hendrix should have been outcast when he started promoting acid hits, or James Brown when he made pay back, take it back further, Ray Charless was talking about getting high on records and k!lling n*ggas over messing with his girl and that fool was blind......point is, negativity sales, it always has and it always will.......and further more its part of human nature to flock to exactly that which is. Violence, bravdo, murders, drugs, hiphop....we as humans are this....and black people are no different. We are just as fascinated with a train wreck as Billy Bob because naturally we want to see what happened, we want to share in on the excitement of it, be included in the grief is death occured, or embrace the percieved miracle of life spared. We are inclined for what ever reason to automatically be programmed to await drama.....you do see that right. What Im saying is its not the rappers fault that we are as violent as we are, this is speaking from the perspective of us as a people and as a human race.
What I dont get though is this take on the hiphop music as if all of a sudden its the culprit of our current problems in America. As if hero's like Dolemite and Superfly did not exist at one time. I understand to feel the need to remove negativity in our community to stall these sense of stagnation that we as a race feel, however the music is NOT the main problem. Our main problem is our perception of ourselves and the perception of black Americans from other races in America....we see ourselves as buffoons and most are ashamed of this fact and feel the need to eradicate the buffoonery all for the sake of saving pride in the face of White America......thats a backwards of addressing the situation. Its not what White America or any other race thinks about us, its how we percieve our individual selves.....personally I dont take the blame for some n*gga walking down the street with his pants down by his ankles...thats him and his life....do I think he is a fu*king fool......absolutely, but he is not a reflection of me....sure his skin is black but in all reality I dont know that n*gga.....nor does he know me.....see what Im saying......These rappers are not reflections of me or my community, they are perhaps reflections of my country and the society that we all live in. Violence is not just a black problem in America......Violence is an American problem in America......because history has shown us that violence has perpetuated much more of a social destruction for all citizens of this country not just black Americans....but I dont hear you going after Insane Clown Posses, or Country Artist who talk about guns, liqour and women all the time....so its not about the music, its about the perception of the skin color......which is bullsh*t, you dig it?
