……happens in this election there is a health concern that is affecting a great deal of the country. The focus of this nastiness is on the most vunerable among us. It’s worse than smoking, worse that drugs, worse the sugary soft drinks and candy. What you might ask is this awful toxic substance that is being fed to our young people, especially minorities. To be fair it’s not a substance as much as an attitude. We are also supposed to be on guard for child abuse, endangerment, bullying. We have to take over what kids eat, because their parents aren’t smart enough to feed them. We have to teach them about sex because WE know they’re going to have at 9 years old no matter what they’ve been taught in the home. We also are supposed to watch out for racism, sexism and any other ism except communism and socialism, those are peachy keen.
So if we’re so concerned about 36 oz drinks, french fries and names children call each other on the play ground like doody head, chicken legs and curly top why are not concerned about this. This man and other practitioners of the same genre make money off the objectification of women, they expose children to vile and vulgar language and practices. They elevate racism, bullying and sexism and hold them out as things to be emulated instead of thing to be avoided and dismissed. They make money off the backs of those least able to protect themselves. Lest you think this is just a Jay Z issue let’s list a few more of the worst offenders.
Kanye West: Perfect ?itch
”I only came for the ?itches and the drinks (Say What), ?itches and the drinks” Trey Songz T.I: ‘2 Reasons (I really not sure which is the artist name and which the album)
‘B-tch you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym Rick Ross
Ice Cube: ‘A ?itch Is A ?itch.’
I could go on but why bother. This unfortunately is the just the tip of the iceberg and it doesn’t concern just Rap but they are the most egregious panderers of it. According to a study done by Rand says;
Exposure to lots of sexually degrading music “gives them (children and teenagers) a specific message about sex,” said the lead author, Steven Martino, a researcher for Rand, in Pittsburgh. Boys learn they should be relentless in pursuit of women, and girls learn to view themselves as sex objects, he said. “We think that really lowers kids’ inhibitions and makes them less thoughtful” about sexual decisions and may influence them to make decisions they regret, he said.
The study, based on telephone interviews with 1,461 participants aged 12 to 17, appears in the August issue of Pediatrics, being released Monday.
It also points out that music alone is not the only influence but I dare say that parents that encourage or allow their children access to filthy and violent lyrics also allow them to see the same kind of images as well as model the same kind of behavior.
Now if your goal is to create sociopath you would be well on your way. If you goal is to raise children with some chance of having a decent life, experiencing some success and achieving their potential I would think you’d be running as far away as you could to protect your young ones from this kind of anti-human garbage. Having the president of the United States stand on the stage and smile while someone disgraces themselves, their race and their gender seems to be an invitation to disaster. Of course children are a convenient excuse to trot out “hope” and “change” but very little in the black community has changed and hope is in short supply. The black middle class is disappearing along with the jobs that put them there. If anyone is being sent back to the plantation, the race baiters, the “free stuff” promisers and the filth and foul snake oil salesmen that are leading the children down to their own personal hells with silken cords.
It would be wonderful if we could all be Americans without hyphens but since we can’t I guess I’ll be an Anti-Rap crap American. I know my worth as a human being, a woman and an American. Take your vile, nasty, disgusting mouth and spew your vomitus vitriol to someone who has no self-worth. You should be able to identify them easily.
Just ask them to tell you about their ?itches.
