UMMMM.....WHAT AN INTELLIGENT WAY TO START OFF A POST
focusing on >THE PAST and noone has taken my dare YET to focus solely on >the black community as of august 9th 2003 and when you do, >you sidetrack and immediately start talking about "da white >man", "da media"
FIRSTLY MY POST WAS A DIRECT RESPONSE TO THE LEAD POST AND NOT TO YOURS.I DIDN'T READ YOURS, NOR DO I CARE TO.THE LEAD POST WAS ABOUT HOW HIP HOP HOLDS BLACK PEOPLE BACK.I OFFERED A REBUTLE BASED ON ALL THE REFERENCES GIVEN IN THE INITIAL POST.SOME OF MY REFERENCES WERE TO DO WITH OLD SCHOOL HIP HOP BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL POST INCLUDED REFERENCES TO MELLE MEL,NWA,ICE T AND SO FORTH.
...it doesnt matter who u blame, THE BLACK >COMMUNITY IS FUCKED UP!! we have AIDS out the ass, no >fathers in the home, we spend our money like 8 year olds, >our music is repulsive and immoral...these things are FACTS
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE INITIAL POST IS ABOUT HOW HIP HOP HOLDS BLACK PEOPLE BACK, NOT THE TOP 5 REASONS WHY BLACK COMMUNITY IS FUCKED UP.
>and by simply saying "da white man does it too" solves >nothing!!! the reason why we havent fixed our problems is >because we are too busy BLAMING folks for our own doings!!! >VIACOM isnt making the yin yang twins buckdance for the >camera with their gold teeth blinging while degrading the >shit out of black women
NOPE BUT VIACOM IS PUTTING IT OUT, AND AS LONG AS THEY'RE GONNA PAY PEOPLE TO MAKE A FOOL OUT OF OUR COMMUNITY,WITHOUT BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE, THEY GONNA DO IT.EXCUSE ME FOR QUESTIONING MEDIA OUTLETS FOR THEIR CONTENT!!!!!
...and much props to the roots, dead >prez, badu, jill scott...but guess what, THEY AINT EATEN!! >and when i say EATING i mean they should be RICH!!!
THE ONLY POINT I AGREE WITH YOU ON..IS THEY SHOULD BE RICH..BUT THEY'RE NOT...ASK ANY OF THE ARTISTS ABOVE HOW MUCH SUPPORT THEY GET FROM THEIR LABELS....HOW MUCH THEY GET FOR THEIR VIDEOS OR THEIR ROYALTIES.....
talib >kweli, common, nas they get just as many spins as these >other niggas
I BEG TO DIFFER, NAS IS THE ONLY ONE THAT PROLLY GETS ALOT OF SPINS...AND TRUST ME HIS AIRPLAY HAS DIMINISHED SINCE HE STOPPED BEEFING AND STARTED TEACHING...AND WHO U GONNA BLAME THAT ON? HIP HOP OR THE BLACK COMMUNITY???????
, the bottom line is that black folks wanna hear >that ignorant shit, its a hard pill to swallow but its just >the truth!!!
WHO MADE YOU THE OFFICIAL SPOKESPERSON OF WHAT BLACK FOLKS WANT TO HEAR? BLACK FOLK DON'T EVEN BUY THE MAJORITY OF HIP HOP MUSIC.IT'S WHITE FOLKS. > >bottom line the black community is in the WORST shape its >been in EVER!! PERIOD!! and if you honestly think that hip >hop music/culture isnt to blame, you are in denial straight >up.
I BELIEVE THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS IN A BAD CONDITION,BUT I DON'T THINK HIP HOP SHOULD TAKE THE BLAME FOR ALL THE FAILINGS OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY......I THINK LACK OF UNITY AND LEADERSHIP ARE MORE TO BLAME....
OH YEAH..ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WITH THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS IGNORANT FUCKS LIKE YOU...WHO WANT TO STAND ON A SOAPBOX AND SING ABOUT THE PROBLEMS ABOUT 'US BLACKS', TALKING ABOUT HOW IMMORAL OUR MUSIC IS AND THEN IN YOUR OPENING LINE YOU ADDRESS ME AS A THROWBACK NEGRO...CHECK YOURSELF YOU IGNORANT SON OF A WHORE BEFORE YOU EVEN CONSIDER TALKING ABOUT THE PROBLEMS FACING THE BLACK COMMUNITY...
