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.
