    Re: Racist or not Racist.

    There’s a lot more to hip-hop than that, whether you’re being ignorant or merely insulting. Conscious rap speaks to the political consciousness of Black America, its aspiration, its troubles. You may or may not know that. But by insulting rap and hip-hop as a whole you’re asserting that the voice of contemporary black culture and philosophy is worthless. Whether you’re joking or not, that’s very ignorant and very insulting. Learn about KRS one, Dr. Cornell West, learn about the history and relevance of hip-hop. In short get educated about something before you run your mouth about it.

    Actually, I have to say that I didn't really care much for rap until I heard Grandmaster Flash "The Message". That's a very intense and powerful song.

    It is indeed.
    And as for the thread as a whole, look everybody: I’m as much for a race-less society as any of you. Race is more or less a fiction used to divide people. But to pretend that racism is dead, or even to pretend that institutionalized racism is dead is not only ludicrous, but dangerous. It’s akin to celebrating the eradication of small pox before the job is done.
    From racial profiling by police, to the insane incarceration rates of black men, to harsher sentences for the same crimes, to the racists you describe as “Joe” being very politically active, to things as simple as the drastic steps homeowners associations take to keep the neighborhood “desirable,” institutionalized racism is alive and well in America. I wish it weren’t so.

    Rap has zero value to black culture or any culture whatsoever. It's a bunch of foul mouthed thugs devaluing women, glorifying murder, and legitimizing drug trade. You can make all your hysterical and histrionic wailings about how not giving credit to a degenerate and talentless pursuit is racist or ignorant but it will do nothing to elevate rap above the ****tiest form of artistic expression in the history of mankind. If rap is truly the voice of black america and is a driving force behind its political philosophy then that says a lot about black america and I simply have too much respect for my black friends and acquaintances to believe such an absurd line of total bull****.

    Blues, r&b, funk...the artistic voices of black america come from those pursuits. Not this morally bankrupt **** that is called rap.

    And one more thing...I will speak freely about any goddamned thing I please and you will simply deal with it and move on. I am not the least bit hindered or swayed by your race baiting hysterics.

    There's a lot of rap that is precisely the opposite of what you just described. It's a shame you'll never hear it and that it won't enrich your life as it has done for countless others.

    I'm not hysterical. And I never told you to stop talking. The suggestion to get educated about something before running your mouth about it was merely friendly advice to try to prevent you from making other unfortunate statements. But by all means, rant away.

    Re: Racist or not Racist.

    Here's my contribution to rap:

    I's a cracker,
    But I couldn't be blacker
    Someone calls me a donkey,
    Get kicked from this honky.

    I roll hard when I'm bowling
    Some say that I'm trolling
    Couldn't be a baller cause I'm five foot three,
    So I became a Master Wizard in D & D!

    Kickin' with my posse
    Wiggas want to be me,
    Watchin' Fox on TV
    Can't get an STD

    Cause no bitches want to **** me
    Not even for some money
    When it's pussy that I want to get,
    I have to use the internet

    Word!

    Well considering that all humans are related to Chimps, I do not see how you can openly say how that is racist. We are going to look like apes, because guess what, they are our distant relatives.

    If you think this is racist then you will probably not understand this cartoon, and probably take it opposite the way it was intended to be taken.

    I don't think it's as black and white (no pun intended) as people make it out to be. There are racists that use the system to their advantage. I've known cops in rural and urban areas that hate black people. That doesn't mean that all cops do. I think the racists are in the minority. But they do exist currently and always will.

    You are right about those who race bait and are all too quick to play the race card. I'm reminded of this kid who sped on his way to school every day and got pulled over in front of the school. People asked him why he was stopped. His answer was because he was DWB (Driving while black). That nonsense has to stop. It gives people a reason to not care about racism. Call it chicken little syndrome.
