    Hip-hop is the target, my friend. And with the help of the NFL I hope to wipe the scourge from the face of this once great land.....

    O'Reilly is that you?

    That's MAINSTREAM? I thought my big mistake was attributing the characteristics of 'gangsta' rap to MAINSTREAM hip-hop. If those are indeed the attributes of MAINSTREAM hip-hop, then I stand by my assertion. I thought the MAINSTREAM comprised the majority of the culture - who are those you speak of that have talent? [​IMG] FYI, dunderhead, a generalized view of anything will generally describe the MAINSTREAM of that particular subject. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I actually thought fortune had it backwards as well.

    My daughter's first grade teacher, who is very cool, is into hip-hop. Once a week, she does a little hip-hop class for the kids. Whatever culture or subculture she's working within seems ok to me.

    O'Reilly is next (after Rush). The rightwing media is almost as bad as (MAINSTREAM) hip-hop!

    I see no difference between you and them, both are oddly hyperbolic and clearly ignorant.

    Just make sure it's not MAINSTREAM hip-hop. [​IMG]

    You need to get your eyes checked (and probably your hearing as well [​IMG] ). [​IMG]

    I dont think hiphop culture is the problem. Hiphop was fine when it originated. Its the same hiphop.

    The problem is not in the NFL or the hiphop culture. It is the same problem that plagues the USA now. A general lack of discipline and Too much political correctness. We are so worried about making poeple feel uncomfortbale / offended that we sugar coat everything and noone grows up.

    There are too many 29 year old kids who don't know how to conduct themselves because they were never made to mind parents or teachers or any authority figures.

    Here is one I will take flak for though... In my opinion (this is my opinion - so dont argue or I will be offended and/or cry and claim you are a bully)... but I thin the degredation of the faimly and home is THE problem. High divorce rate / kids out of marriage leaves too many kids without a dominant father figure. This means that the young males never learn how to conduct themselves as a man and become a gentleman - and also, women don't know what to expect in a man.

    No need to get personal JP. I'm sorry you find my views on MAINSTREAM hip-hop so objectionable. It's only music, you know. If the violence and misogyny don't bother you, then more power to you!

    BTW, I'm a good dancer, too.

    It was a trick question, but you got it right and proved you're not O'Reilly, who thinks it's called a "falafel":

    4) "So anyway I'd be rubbing your big boobs and getting your nipples really hard, kinda' kissing your neck from behind...and then I would take the other hand with the falafel thing and I'd just put it on your p***y but you'd have to do it really light, just kind of a tease business..." --as quoted in a sexual harassment suit filed against him by a Fox News producer, 2004 (Source)

    romafan. this is the problem. you blame everything on hip hop which is a cultural phenomenon created in and by the hood. it's a reflection and result of what goes on in the hood.

    the problems that some black athletes get into are not a result of hip hop. it's a result of whatever they went through that made them make poor decisions--this could be a number of things like poverty, crime and drug infested neighborhoods, racism, troubled family life, etc. for some, professional sports are the ticket out of this situation.

    some of these young men grew up with nothing and are now given millions of dollars and fame, literally overnight--while still in their teens or early 20's.

    so, oj simpson, who keeps getting into trouble, is he the result of evil hip hop? he was a member of gangs and had a horrible childhood, way before hip hop was even invented. he had already retired from a successful professional football career before people even heard of hip hop.

    how about lebron james, at 22, he is someone who is incredibly mature and is a role model for not just young black athletes but all young athletes. he IS hip hop. he is a part of hip hop culture and hip hop is a huge part of him. by your argument, he should be in jail or fighting pitbulls.

    do you see why the "hip hop is destroying america" argument is complete b.s.?


    if you want to stop anyone, not just some black professional athletes, from making shitty decisions, you're gonna have to fix the roots of the problem. these are a poor education system, poverty, joblessness, racism, crime, drugs, broken families, etc.

    hip hop is a response and reaction to this. but people are calling it the cause.
