As you well know I love and respect our women. NWA didn't create the culture. When are people going to
attack the source and not the end result? Nobody EVER looks at the conditions that lead up to a particular culture. They attack culture without ever attacking the forces that led to the culture (sorry for the redundancy)

NWA hip hop/rap didn't land on that culture, the culture landed on NWA and hip hop. Which in reality was a reflection of their/our environment. Hip hop didn't "create" this culture. Did hip hop create the mob mentality
of the 1920's, 30's, 40's and 50's?

Smh.

Also the sista wants to look at this as a gender specific problem when it is much more than that.

A much more balanced and far less biased take was and is called for on this topic

Sorry brutha..but you're wrong. They are responsible for perpetuating it. And lets be honest, many blacks grow up in the hood and don't do any of the things they say is a part of the hood. Chuck D grew up in the hood but look at what he decided to rap about? We can't make excuses and absolve our own when it comes to something we like, but condemn then, and use the word responsibility when it comes to something we don't like. I'm still trying to figure out what are we defending, and why? Now you want to attack the source right, well why not put that responsibility on the artist? Why don't they go to the source and say that we aren't going to make this type of music anymore?

These rappers know what the deal is and they ain't listening to you, or anyone else that wants the money to stop. Look at what Prince did, and he got what he wanted, and he's still raking in the cash. So again, tell me what are you defending?

Peace!

Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
