Hip-Hop Hegemony

Oliver Williams, American Renaissance, April 11, 2014

Degeneracy is now mainstream.

John Kerry once claimed to be “fascinated by rap and by hip-hop.” He went on to say:

I think there’s a lot of poetry in it. . . . I think you’d better listen to it pretty carefully, ’cause it’s important. I’m still listening because I know that it’s a reflection of the street and it’s a reflection of life.

Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich said that Tupac Shakur, a man with the words Thug Life tattooed on his chest, expresses “an elegant dissatisfaction with the situation” and told hip-hop fans they were “the leaders we have been waiting for.” (italics added)

In 2001, Detroit elected Kwame Kilpatrick, dubbed the “hip-hop mayor” on account of his love of gangster rap. He has now been sentenced to 28 years in jail for racketeering and extortion. That did not stop black Democratic Congressman Andre Carson from calling for the “geniuses,” “brilliant minds,” and “great poets” of hip-hop to move into politics; he wants to see “a hip-hop governor, a hip-hop mayor, even a hip-hop President.”

Perhaps America already has a hip-hop President. Mr. Obama has been on the cover of Vibe magazine, had a private summit with Ludacris, and was interviewed by P. Diddy on MTV News. Mr. Diddy later lead a chant of “Obama or die” at a music awards ceremony. Jay-Z, an unrepentant former crack dealer, joined Mr. Obama on the campaign trail to rap that he had “99 problems but Mitt ain’t one.”

When the white radio host Don Imus described a women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos,” Mr. Obama said solemnly that the remark “fed into some of the worst stereotypes that my two young daughters are having to deal with today in America.” Of course, what Mr. Imus said was laughably tame by the standards of rap lyrics. Some of Jay-Z’s lyrics have been so misogynistic that he had to ask himself, “What kind of animal would say this sort of thing?” Evidently the kind of animal that routinely exchanges texts with the President. Mr. Obama has also declared himself a fan of Lil Wayne, a gang member who spent time on Rikers Island for drug and firearm offences.

The embrace of Obama by the hip-hop musicians has sometimes been awkward. At one Black Entertainment Television event, the act that rapped out the line “I make your wife feel the pain too: anal” was followed by one that insisted “Change gon’ come, just like Barack said.”  Jay-Z promised to buy the whole ‘hood guns if Obama were not elected. Young Jeezy, a proud criminal and formerly of Boyz n da Hood, promised to “motivate the thugs” to vote Democrat in his pre-election ode, “My President,” adding that “they gotta put your face on the five-thousand dollar bill.”

Now Republicans want some of the excitement. The first black chairman of the Republican National committee, Michael Steele, said in 2009 that the party needed a “hip-hop makeover.” White politicians of both parties profess their love of hip-hop.

Trey Radel, who was a Republican congressman from Florida until January of this year, is a self-proclaimed “hip-hop conservative.” A fan of Big Daddy Kane–famous for tunes such as “Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy”–Mr. Radel recently pleaded guilty to cocaine possession. His media company, Trey Enterprises, also registered sex-themed website domain names including cojible.com, which means a woman who doesn’t look good but is good enough for copulation.

Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor is a self-confessed fan of Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy. Marco Rubio, who has quoted hip-hop lyrics during Senate hearings, explained to GQ magazine that his favourite song is “Straight Outta Compton” by Niggaz With Attitude. He says Tupac Shakur is “someone that was trying to inform us about what was going on,” and claims rappers are “like reporters.”

This has been the standard way hip-hopers justify their lyrics: They simply bear witness to reality. As Chuck D of Public Enemy once said, they are “the black CNN.” Public Enemy has included in its reporting that Jews are responsible for ”the majority of wickedness” in the world, including “experiments on AIDS with black people in South Africa.”

Liberals try to paint any song that mentions poverty, racism, or police brutality as incisive social commentary, but hip-hop does more than reflect degeneracy: It celebrates it. It also heaps contempt on people who work. Rapper Fat Joe told the Village Voice about his job in a shoe store:

I only worked there for two days. I told my mum I was going to change my life and be a good guy, but then I was watching the videos they was playing in the store and the Big Daddy Kane video came on. I saw that, quit my job, and went to hustle.

The American Enterprise Institute recently compiled a bizarre list of the 21 greatest “conservative” rap songs that reportedly promote not just “pro-family social values, but also . . . small government and peace through strength.” Author Stan Veuger quotes Dr. Dre—”Treat my rap like Cali weed, I smoke til I sleep / Wake up in the A.M., compose a beat”and then claims this means that “from the moment he wakes up till the moment he goes to sleep, his mind is focused on his professional obligations.”

Mr. Veuger also quotes what he thinks is a principled attack on the welfare state:

If it was up to me / You motherf*****s would stop coming up to me / With your hands out lookin’ up to me / Like you want something free.

One would like to think Mr. Veuger is writing satire but he is serious.

The Republican Party may have something in common with rap–a less than benign view of homosexuals and a love of guns–and there has been at least one Republican hip-hoper. Eazy-E, an ex-gangster known for songs such as “Nutz on Ya Chin,” donated $2,490 to the Republican Party. Senate leader Bob Dole then invited him to an exclusive luncheon in Washington where George H.W. Bush gave a speech. Eazy said he was a huge fan of the then-president. That was in 1991.

Awkward Republican attempts to be “hip” will not win votes. Marco Rubio could quote rap lyrics all day, but blacks won’t vote for him.

But the attempts show how far we have come from the days when Vice President Dan Quayle called Tupac Shakur “a disgrace to American music,” Bob Dole railed against “sexual violence given a catchy tune,” and Tipper Gore wrote op-eds about “Hate, rape, and rap.”

Even blacks used to fight rap. C. Dolores Tucker, who marched with Martin Luther King and was Secretary of State for Pennsylvania from 1971 to 1977, picketed stores that sold gangster rap. She even bought stock in Sony and Time Warner so she could berate executives at shareholders’ meetings. Rappers hated her and some mentioned her in their lyrics. Here’s a line from a 1996 album by Shakur: C. Delores Tucker you’s a motherf****r / Instead of trying to help a nigga you destroy a brother.”

Tucker has now been dead for nine years, and no one has taken her place.

When prominent whites–for whatever reason–speak admiringly about what is certainly the most loathsome form of American “culture,” it only entrenches it even more deeply in the minds of young whites.

  • I think it’s a double edged sword. Hip hop doesn’t just reflect ghetto black reality, it also helps meld it and shape it. How many blacks have run themselves to the pit of hell because they hear rap lyrics, think they have to “keep it real” by going out and actually doing what they hear?

    • Alexandra1973

      I see it as a “chicken or the egg” scenario. Which game first, acting like a gangsta or rapping about it?

    • Oil Can Harry

      Not to sound like Pollyanna, but rap lyrics are actually LESS offensive nowadays.
      Back in the late 80s/ early 90s there were a ton of gangsta rap records advocating gangbanging, drug dealing, pimping, killing police officers, etc. There were also a lot of political raps that praised the Nation of Islam and espoused killing “white devils”.
      Most rappers now are apolitical buffoons, endlessly claiming to own mansions, yachts, private jets, etc. They actually fancy themselves to be cultured because their songs name-check designer brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Cristal champagne and so on.

      • Garrett Brown

        They still make plenty of songs about murder and rape. Watch BET for one night if you can bear the torture to your ears.

      • John R

        You might have a point. But look at it this way: It is hard to rebel against a culture that is actually run by people that believe just as you do.

    • David Ashton

      Some elderly Christian blacks call it Devil Music.

    • 1stworlder

      And how do you explain crime in Africa and black crime throughout recorded history?

  • DaCoachK

    Couldn’t agree more. To paraphrase William Bennett, if great great books, music and art can uplift, can not the opposite be true: bad books, music and art debase? Drive-by culture has too much influence, and it used to be fringe. It helps none that legitimate people embrace this very harmful garbage. It is not music in any sense. It is bad and elementary poetry placed over the top of a stolen hook. Period.

    • phorning

      This is exactly right, too many people are influenced by this part of the culture. It bleeds over into other areas, many of these “musicians” become actors and appear in mainstream TV shows and movies. Most pop music isn’t any better. It is less destructive, but has nothing positive to add.

      • David Ashton

        The Lowest Common Denominator has broader appeal than High Culture. What I notice again and again, including just this past weekend, in the press organs of supposedly intellectual culture in Britain – the Guardian, Observer, etc – is the excessive and high-profiled lionisation of black “musicians” and thug-thud-music.

        • Geo1metric

          “The Lowest Common Denominator has broader appeal than High Culture. ”

          But WHY?? This has been a huge mystery to me for most of my adult life.

          Why is it that supposedly intelligent Whites are attracted to low-life black music and entertainment instead of savoring the best that humans can produce??

          • David Ashton

            We all share the sex instinct, but not all of us have the sensibility or intelligence to appreciate high culture.

  • Alexandra1973

    “My President,” adding that “they gotta put your face on the five-thousand dollar bill.”

    A three-dollar bill is more fitting.

    In high school (I graduated in 1991) I listened to DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince. That was back when rap/hip-hop wasn’t so degenerate (and back when we still had 33 and 45 RPM records). Though it was starting to head that way (think 2 Live Crew and the Beastie Boys, then Tone Loc).

    Now there are white people around here blasting that noise. I just want to shake them and ask what’s wrong with them.

    • TL2014

      I used to, I confess, play Ludacris on my iPod while jogging. Until I actually listened to the lyrics.

      There is something hypnotizing about the rhythmic and musical talent coming from that population. Unfortunately, it is horribly abused to further the destructive culture associated with it.

      • GenX Antipodean

        I used to work in door to door sales and I noticed myself that the best salesmen, while lacking any natural charisma or charm, had this hypnotic ability that came out in their (seems like they didn’t stop to take a breath) cyclic, head nodding talking.
        They’d also machine gun ask safe “yes” questions, like “is the sky blue”?
        “Do you like food”?, “Are you alive”? “Will you buy my product”? Do you like kittens”? With the responses being “yes, yes, yes, yes”.
        I also notice the way stand up comedians use tonal inflections and timing to make their jokes seem funny, in such a way where you can also get people laughing providing your deliver the punchline with the right cadences, with no actual words.
        Both of those examples are like a dance, where you can find yourself being artfully lead, if you’re not careful and you passively go along for the ride.

      • Alexandra1973

        Exactly…the rhythm opens your mind so to speak (I’m having a hard time conveying what I mean here), and it lets the garbage in.

        • Garrett Brown

          Some of the songs make you feel invincible, like you can do or say anything. That’s what they want for young blacks, they turn them into soldiers that try and dismantle te establishment. For all races most rap music makes you feel like you’re the “stuff”. Which is extremely detrimental to your real life and reality in work and school. I would say maybe 10% of people who actually listen to rap actually listen to the lyrics and embrace them. Ask any ignorant teen why he listens to rap, most likely the answer will be “I like the beat”.

          I know exactly what you’re talking about.

          • Katherine McChesney

            If it produces that effect, it is simply mind control.

        • John R

          No need to apologize, Alexandra1973, I think you conveyed it very well, thank you.

      • Garrett Brown

        The producers that make that addictive music are majorly white or Arab. Only a few negro producers actually have talent and are original.

    • Guest

      They might as well put him on the one hundred trillion dollars bill

    • BulgAryan

      What about putting him on the one hundred trillion dollars bill?

  • Martel

    Hiphop is incredibly important for the black nationalist cause.

  • Jon

    Rap and hip-hop or what ever U want to call it is one the reasons for the decay in American society along with pro sports. It gives millions of dollar to people who will never be productive or really contribute. when blacks do speak out about this then r are demonized and silenced.

    • gacl

      This is silly. It’s just leisure. In a capitalist sense, successful entertainers do contribute. There are lots of problems and social decay in the US, but music and sports aren’t root causes.

      • Alexandra1973

        Have you actually listened to the lyrics?

        I guarantee you, if some White person came up with a song about killing blacks, the race hustlers would be out of the woodwork faster than anything, and it wouldn’t be considered just “leisure.”

  • Puggg

    Hip hop is cool because a certain group (tribe) of people say it’s cool.

    To me, it’s just noise.

    • Luca

      Hope you don’t mind but:

      Hip hop is cool because a certain group (tribe) of people make enormous amounts of money off of it and they don’t care how it hurts society. They exploit human adolescent weakness for profit.

      To me it’s vulgar, primitive, filth.

      • TL2014

        Hip hop is successful because it appeals to one’s base instincts, not requiring any refinement and/or sophistication. I might add that it’s quite useful for working out, if you just skip listening to the lyrics.

        You can blame the “tribe” all you want, but if there were no demand, there would be no supply. It’s like demanding a stop to violent movies, when those movies seem to be in such demand by an overwhelmingly brute, stultified population.

        • Stan D Mute

          Amazing isn’t it? How even here so many blame the merchants for their customers’ vice. Let’s villainize drug peddlers who would be out of business tomorrow if idiots weren’t lined up by the millions to buy stuff that will numb their brains. Examples of this type of thinking abound and it’s nothing more than the same victim mentality we rage against when we see it from feminists or civil rights activists. Here it’s this “tribe” that’s responsible for all our failings. I’ve argued against it here and in other fora for •years• and it’s to the point now where I wonder if the chief instigators aren’t $PLC plants or other trolls.

          When you see white kids listening to cRap or growing dreadlocks or whatever, don’t blame the cRap “musicians” or “the tribe” running so much of the recording industry! It’s a failing within the white community. It’s a failing in •white• leadership (Boehner I’m looking at you and your ilk). Whites CAN provide positive role models that DON’T run afoul of PC Thought Police. White parents CAN keep their kids from embracing the cRap Afro thug culture without being reported to state child welfare authorities. America is failing today because parents are failing their kids. Baby Boomers were too indulged by their Worst Generation parents and now the Boomers’s kids are (far too many of them) train wrecks who think Abe Lincoln was the greatest President, Paul Krugman or Keynes the greatest economist, and that TVland’s magic negroes are the norm.

          OUR house is broken. Blaming others will never fix it.

          • David Ashton

            Of course, it is our first duty to repair the damage and improve the house, but identifying the arsonists should not be overlooked.

          • TL2014

            So the coca growers in Medellin are the “arsonists”?
            You can fumigate Colombia until the whole country goes up in smoke (and the ridiculous war on drugs did nothing until Colombia itself elected a highly competent and determined leader in the form of Uribe), but without the cooperation of willing recipients, those “arson” activities would be useless.

        • David Ashton

          I’m not so sure – you can create addiction for mass-consumption. Aim low and basic, and you can hook even more morally and intellectually resistant individuals.

          • TL2014

            You are giving way too much credit to businessmen who know a good deal when they see it, rather than sit in vaulted chambers and conduct mass conferences on how to dupe poor innocent “Gentiles”.

          • David Ashton

            1. Personally I have never said and do not suppose that Jewish businessmen actually conspire together as an ethnic collective consciously to dupe non-Jews as an ethnic collective. Maybe the word “identify” prompted your reaction, but of course many types are involved in making money out of consumer stupidity, although Jewish promoters probably happen to have considerable experience in some entertainment industries.
            2. Drugs require both “victims” and “suppliers” but (i) addictions are hard to give up while providing a guaranteed market and (ii) brain poisons are particularly harmful to society.

    • gacl

      Same thing for any form of music or entertainment. I love classical music, jazz, and tons of other stuff, but to many people it is just noise.

  • John R

    So, some people claim that we can’t blame crime and violence on hip hop music? Well, they may have a point: Probably no one went out on a shooting spree just because they listened to rap and hip hop. But, then again, isn’t part of music’s purpose to influence society? What about all the protest music of the sixties? All the anti-war music? All that “Kumbaya” and “We shall overcome” stuff the left always loves? Wasn’t that mean to influence people? So, how can you say that today’s depraved ghetto culture is not at least in part, influenced by the choice of music?

  • OhWow

    I think it’s one thing to just enjoy a certain beat. It’s another thing entirely to live out the lyrics of what these rappers say in everyday life. When you say black kids act out the hustling and crime glorified in rap songs, blacks will point the finger back and say “But white kids do that with rock”.

    That’s the difference between whites and blacks. Blacks are easily manipulated and they have a dominant culture: hip hop culture. They eat, sleep, and breathe prison, ignorance, violence, hustling, unprotected sex, strip clubs, etc. Whites don’t have a dominant culture. Some of us like rock, some like country, some like techno, some like r&b, some like house music, etc. So there is no mass movement of whites acting out what they hear…whites just like the music for the auditory pleasure. Blacks actually try to do what rappers say. There’s the difference.

    Hip hop culture tells black people that going to graduate school and being smart is “acting white. It tells them that basically everything positive someone can do is “soft” or “lame”. For whites it’s shameful to the family if someone is in prison. For blacks they love telling people they went because they earn street cred.

    The failure of black people can be boiled down to a few things: 1) Low IQ genetics 2) The perpetual cycle of victimhood and dependency on government and 3) Hip Hop culture that encourages ignorance and violence. But of course no blacks would dare admit the obvious.

    • Martel

      “Hip hop culture tells black people that going to graduate school and being smart is “acting white”

      Which is brilliant really, this is why blacks are such a political force today. They are even openly anti-semitic and it hardly hurts their cause. The message of black unity promoted through black music is exemplary for whites to learn from.

      • David Ashton

        Some of the black “music” videos are so utterly disgusting that it is hard to see any whites or even that many blacks taking to them. In Britain however it is noticeable that our liberal intellectual papers, especially weekend magazines, give glaring disproportionate eulogistic attention to black singers, dancers, actors, celebrities and ex(?)criminals.

        • Martel

          Black criminality is excused because they are “oppressed” , black vulgarity is excused because we are still fighting our prudish, slave trading Christian ancestors and will demolish every reminder of human decency until we are sure they will never come back.

    • Young white people who listen to the malodorous noise just listen to it, and shut it off when they’re tired of it or having something better to do. Eventually, they’ll outgrow it and shut it off for one last time.

      A lot of black people who listen to it feel like they have to go out and do what they heard in the lyrics. In some instances, rap lyrics have been used to solve cold homicide cases, because the rap lyrics themselves are basically a police report in the Ebonics language.

      • OhWow

        Exactly. I have no problem admitting some of the beats are addictive but once I shut that radio off I go back to reality. Blacks can’t separate rap lyrics from reality.

      • David Ashton

        In Britain a black man who wrote a rap lyric celebrating how he murdered and mutilated a helpless policeman has just been acquitted of his murder.

  • bilderbuster

    The Tribe runs the Music Biz as well as the rest of the media.
    Where are the Rabbis speaking out against this to their fellow members who promote this throughout the industry?

    • GenX Antipodean

      Rabbi’s speaking out and offering moral tutoring for that hedonistic gentile and Afro cultural appropriator Miley Cyrus, got a few headlines recently.
      Mixed messages all over the place in there.

      • David Ashton

        I hope Taylor Swift or Sophie Ellis Bextor are not required by the business-boys to “sex up” (or down) like Miley Cyrus (who incidentally has a thoroughly unfeminine ordinary speaking voice).

        • GenX Antipodean

          I read on the UK Daily Mail that Miley Cyrus has Brittany Spears old PR manager from back when she was “going crazy” and was in the tabloids literally everyday.
          Miley has gone from being a Disney girl to having shots from her live concerts ending up on porn sites, they’re that explicit.
          As the father of a young girl (8) who seems to like music, I constantly worry about that world’s influence. I remember being shocked when she was at a school disco when she was five and they were playing “I kissed a girl and I liked it” and all the little tots were singing along knowing all the words. Katy Perry, Adam Lambert, Lady Gaga, Pink all have already crossed my families path (without any of it coming in the door) and all of them have some sort of sexually degenerate under lying message.
          They all make me feel very old (I’m 41).
          I wonder how much further that they can push the envelope, but then it’s the more subtle acts I find more insidious than the outright overt ones, like the “I’m the normal everyday degenerate pervert from next door” message i.e. this is the new normal folks.
          The antithesis of the slut image in female pops stars, seems to be the empowered feminist pop star (thinking Lorde), which I think again leads to young woman who have been freed of male dominance(such as a fathers influence) and social restraints(such as having manners and self pride) again lead to woman being exploited, such as the young fatherless girls in the UK Muslim sex rings have been.
          I probably sound like I want to join the Amish, I just want to be a good father, mass media and societies sliding standards aren’t helping.

          • David Ashton

            Complete agreement.
            The attack on the “bourgeois family unit” and family values has come from various directions, some themselves contradictory (e.g. “feminist” views on “sex work” and porn). This goes back a long way, and Christians and others have been rather slow to wake up to resisting the infiltration into politics, commerce, entertainment and even their own “ranks”. The unification of parents in general overt, informed opposition would be a welcome development, provided that it is a coalition of purpose on basic objectives rather than a function of (say) solely Biblical Baptist sectarianism.

  • rasher223

    Rap and hip hop is dead in the U.S.

    There is no dominating music genre right now. We’re sorta waiting for the next “thing” to come out. Hopefully it won’t be black dominated.

    • You’re probably right about the genre of malodorous noise in Ebonics being in its death throes. Proof of that can be found in two names: Lil Mouse, Lil Poopy. 11 years old and 9 years old, respectively. And they’re both really big stars in the rap industry. Any genre where 9 and 11 year olds can clean up isn’t much of a genre.

      • Katherine McChesney

        I can’t stand it. It’s a degenerate form of music. I wouldn’t pollute my mind with it.

  • I think it’s hilarious that Eazy-E was a Republican. I’ve been trying to talk sense to rap fans my whole life. It’s like talking to a dog about table manners. They don’t get it.

  • LACountyRedneck

    (C)rap. I usually enjoy 2-pac on the weekends. One 6-pack on a Saturday and one on a Sunday. The previous neighborhood I lived in turned from all White to mostly bantu in about 10 years. Before I moved from there I was in my garage working out and listening to country music when 2 young N****** walked by on the sidewalk. One of them for about 2 seconds was acting silly making fun of my music. I was eyeballing them walking by and the one negroid told the other to STFU. It’s was funny seeing their reaction to some tall bearded White man bench-pressing 375 at the time giving them the stare.

    • Garrett Brown

      Blacks know their place when the white man is strong and confident. Props to you for lifting weights and staying in shape. Funny, the few problems I had with blacks seemed to fade away when I became a 230 pound athlete.

      • LACountyRedneck

        You know first hand they don’t dare mess with a strong White man. Sure, I could get jumped by a group of them if I ended up in the wrong neighborhood, but that would be my fault. Another time years ago I was at the park playing in a full court pick up game. The guy guarding me was my height and black. This was prior to my becoming a race realist but I still didn’t take crap from anyone. Things were going smooth until he said quietly to me, “If you don’t watch your elbows I will lay you out.” He could jump like the typical bunny and I wasn’t letting him get near the basket. I knew none of the ten guys playing, about half black, half White. Due to a previous experience with a sucker punching bantu ball player, I had a short fuse. I immediately stopped and faced him and at the top of my voice I told him, “FU, MF’er, I will lay YOU out.” I repeated, “I WILL LAY YOU OUT.” We stood there facing each other for 5 or 10 seconds, fists balled up, and one of his jungle buddies got in his face and made him walk away. He walked to his car and sat in it for a few minutes and I didn’t know if was he was going to come back with a gun or what. I’m not suggesting others do the same. They could have ganged up on me or gotten a gun and come back, but I was furious, and probably a little dumber back then. 🙂

        • Garrett Brown

            I agree. Just have to pick your battles wisely as many of those cowards will shoot you for nothing. And when it comes to White vs black assaults or shootings, the law will likely favor the poor discriminated against bantus over the evil spoiled White man.

    My online English 101 class is a black perspectives course(I wasn’t aware when I signed up!) they had us read an essay and write a paper about hip hop. The professor holds this stuff up on a pedestal like its of great value. I just keep thinking to myself- keep it up. It’s only driving your culture further into degeneracy. The sooner it’s destroyed, the better.

So sweet Karma, isn’t it?

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    Rap is jungle noise that mimics the beat of sexual intercourse, the obvious product of a primitive, sex-crazed negro mind permanently stuck in the gutter. Multicultural extremists promote this brainwashing because it encourages the human genetic modification of the white race through race mixing. It is poison that destroys the lives of impressionable white youth by glorifying the lifestyles of junkies, gangsters and convicts, goading them on to do the same. I see rap for what it is: an instrument for the cultural and physical genocide of the white race.

    Smash all negroid music.

      From the article I linked below (that I should have read properly yesterday), private corporations who’ve utilized prison labor by in private prisons for between 25c to 50c an hour in wages……
      IBM, Boeing, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, Wireless, Texas Instrument, Dell, Compaq, Honeywell, Hewlett-Packard, Nortel, Lucent Technologies, 3Com, Intel, Northern Telecom, TWA, Nordstrom’s, Revlon, Macy’s, Pierre Cardin, Target Stores and many more.
      With investors from companies such as Merrill-Lynch, Shearson-Lehman, American Express and Allstate.

      Here’s a new conspiracy theory, how about these corporations actively encouraging the ’empowering’ progressive egalitarian entitlement mindset to a emotional, righteous and infamously short fused people again, to send ‘new workers’ their way.
      Yeah I know, I know, show me the paper trail and the Hip Hop conspiracy probably sounds more feasible.

      But I know myself as a small business owner, that labor is certainly my biggest cost but I’m not into the third world, slavery is illegal, I couldn’t be bothered with adopting someone else’s problem, but prison labor hmmmm.
      You have to give credit to the rich though, as they’re always finding new ways of exploiting us proles.

    That list of conservative rap songs can’t possibly be serious. Here’s a quote:

    “On a sidenote, when Mr. Carter performed this song at the inaugural Staff Ball, celebrating president Obama’s victory, he and 4,000 Obama campaign operatives changed the word “bitch” in the chorus to “Bush,” as a part of their never-ending struggle for a new civility in the public arena.”

  • Stan D Mute

    I’m a hair older, and I •heard• the Beastie Boys and ICP, but that was about it. I never •listened• to the garbage. Compared to classical music, even the rock greats I listen(ed) to are still amateur. Led Zep, The Who, Beatles, Stones, ELO, BTO, Jefferson Starship, Clapton, Seger, Nugent, Rush, etc are combined of lesser talent than Mozart.

    For me, the best rock songs tell a story (ie Stairway to Heaven, 2112, etc). I suppose this is true of cRap as well with acts like Eminem or Kid Rock (both white) having some insightful lyrics. It is perhaps noteworthy that at the top of the cRap game are so many whites (Beastie, ICP, Eminem, Kid Rock, Macklemore, Everlast, Mark Wahlberg, etc, when it’s claimed an authentic Afro genre.

    • Hallie Eva

      the best rock songs tell a story
      As the Stones, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”
      I did not discern the Stone’s lyrics until someone gave me a DVD of their Babylon Tour some years back. Using the captions, I can read what they are saying. The songs on the DVD are mostly about relationships with others, heartbreak, loneliness, in short, the human condition. They are good.

    Whites who praise this filth in any way, even taking it seriously or legitimizing it are really responsible for the death of western civilization. Blacks don’t know any better, but anyone who is not sneering at this for the lowest “art” form there is (and that is pride of place in a midden of garbage unbeknownst to former generations of Europeans) is stupid. This is garbage. It’s funny — when I was a teen and this shite first appeared, my friend and I sarcastically composed a horribly vicious rap about black people’s work ethic and black women’s genitals and fecundity, as well as black men’s myths. We were supposed to be two black men with lisps and a lot of ebonic stupidity rapping about our lives, we kept it private but it was a great source of mirth in our group of friends. That was in 1983. I was recently contacted by that same friend, who is now in the late stages of cancer (so sad for her 🙁 ), asking me to try and remember whatever I could from it because she told me she was trying to tell her son about it. Not telling mine, I don’t even want him to know I could use words like that but we were only imitating that crappy rap. Needless to say I couldn’t, and neither of us saved whatever paper plate or paper towel we wrote it on….

    • Those sarcastic rap lyrics back then would have been real world serious rap lyrics today.

    When Tupac Skakur was shot six times in the chest with a .357 magnum revolver and died on the spot, I was pleased as punch. The death of a rapper is something all whites should celebrate.

  • gacl

    Hip hop and rap are not objectively worse than goth, heavy metal, or other counter culture youth trends. What is crazy is how hip hop and rap are tied into ethnicity and racial politics. There is political pressure to legitimatize rap on the basis of racial equality and stop discrimination against rap style speech and dress in schools and the workplace. It is crazy to see people express righteous indignation against employers who discriminate against rap style speech or dress, when the same type of discrimination against goth or punk rock speech/dress is the norm.

      • gacl

        On what grounds or objective basis? Based on my personal tastes, sure, but I can’t logically reason that that is more than merely subjective preference.

        • Geo1metric

          “… but I can’t logically reason that that is more than merely subjective preference.”

          It seems to me that the personal “liking” or “not liking” of anything is utterly subjective.

          I have heard the expression so many times that, “I cannot define pornography, but I know it when I see it”. In fact, I think that came out of a court case concerning “community standards” and the approval of a strip club.

          Define “art”. I cannot, but I know it when I see it. Utterly subjective. In fact, one person’s art is another person’s garbage. Now there is near universal consensus about some “art”, and those pieces of art are, I think considered the “classics”.

          So, one can have wide agreement that something, a sculpture for example, is “art”, and so it is.

          But, I’m not sure “art” can be objectified. Can anyone ever say that “blue” is a better color than “red”?

          Thus we have the “college of Arts and Sciences”. May it ever be so.

    • silviosilver

      I never listen to rap, really can’t stand it and deplore its popularity, but the best rap is vastly superior to the best “death metal” or whatever they call that growling rubbish that is pure aural torture.

      It is valid to dislike youth-centric ebonics rap and hip hop culture. It’s not valid to dislike a the respectable blacks who share that same disdain. Much of the black political right is more articulate and thoughtful than many whites, and I respect them accordingly.

      • silviosilver

        That’s all well and good and I share those sentiments (often against my will – there’s just something about a decent, well-mannered individual that is attractive), but the question is do they respect you? Do they respect your desire to put your own race’s interests first?

        • gacl

          Would I put the interests of Michael Moore over those of Thomas Sowell because the former is white? I definitely would not. I have a strong general preference for white culture over black culture, Beethoven over Tupac for example, but I prefer Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, Allen West, and a lot of non-political black individuals over many white people. Most white people don’t respect the desire to put white interests first, I am not 100% racially aligned, but a minority of blacks are reasonable, have thought this through, and have developed genuine sympathy with the plight of the whites.

          • Randall Ward

            I have been around blacks all my life and I have never seen such an individual. They must be very rare. I have known many overeducated blacks that were raving racists and would blow up over the slightest supposed offense.

          • gacl

            Most blacks I’ve met are completely racist. Obama is extremely racist. I read his autobiography, and wow, it’s not the slightest bit subtle. Most overeducated blacks are racist, heck even many overeducated whites that I know are anti-white racist. Still, some more reasonable blacks do exist. Read the three black political personalities I named, and they are more reasonable than most whites. The black mayor Philly seems way more reasonable than the white mayor of NYC.

            You want racial apartheid. That isn’t remotely practical or realistic. It is better to focus on realistic moves to improve the world. What causes the things you like about one race and dislike about others? If you believe culture, work on improving the culture. If you believe genes, work on understanding which genes do what and opt-in methods to make positive changes. Neither issue is beyond solving. Focusing on the parts of humanity that you hate, and grousing with wildly impractical solutions is just not useful.

    Popular music has been more about celebrities and personality than triads and melody. That’s not a new trend and it isn’t limited to black-centric music either.

    Old enough to vote, and relive the “good old days” [by proxy] via my parents. That would be the era when popular music was sweet and sentimental ala Sinatra, Bennett, Nat King Cole, [yes, black, but he made beautiful music], Mel Tormé, mellow jazz, i.e. Stan Getz.
    Artists as that.
    My personal preference is classical, from old, traditional through the romantics, along with several esoteric genres [e.g. Eastern European choral shape note singing and traditional Blue Grass].
    IMO, W.A. Mozart and Gabriel Faurés Requiem Masses are the pinnacles of musical beauty. Don Giovanni is the best opera ever written.
    “The Haffner Symphony” by Mozart is the top.

  • I’m not convinced music really affects behavior all that much. Despite the fact that young white people listen to this junk in large numbers, you don’t see them selling drugs and shooting each other. They think it’s “cool” and adopt the lingo but not the criminal behavior. It’s sad to see the wholesale worship of degenerate blackness though.

    What’s funny about rap is that the media goes to pains to make black characters in movies and TV smart and well behaved. But then when they make their own “music” they end up coming off as violent, narcissistic, and hyper sexual, which of course a large percentage of black people are. Rap is not a reflection of a subculture, it is an accurate portrayal of mainstream blackness. Therefore it makes sense that you’re not allowed to criticize it any more. Criticism of rap equals criticism of blackness which means you’re an evil racist.

    • gacl

      Criticizing an entire ethnic group is the basic definition of racism. If you hate rap (I do): shift your mind to other thoughts. It’s more productive to focus on the things you love rather than the things you hate.

        Well, when you have at least 80% of a given group conforming to a given stereotype….

        • gacl

            Of course it is racist, which is a healthy response to the depredations of blacks.

          • LACountyRedneck

            Sure. I also can’t say that most people from each and every race who happen to live around people of their own race aren’t racist. Who draws the line to what a fair and acceptable amount of racism is? If I prefer to associate with people of my own tribe, and speak out against the multicultural society and diversity forced on my tribe, am I racist and/or am I wrong, and who is to decide? Racism to me is hate for another race based solely on race and no other reason. Not intelligence, not behavior, not stats, not being discriminated against, etc. I hate none from any race. The people I have the biggest issue with are White traitor leaders. They need to be replaced ASAP.

    There’s much truth to what the article claims, but the music world is different than it was in 1966 when there was basically one programming format for popular music playlists on radio, with the subcultures of white country and black motown playting a smaller role. Now there are ipods and the internet and countless ways to escape whatever trash the “mainstream” pop music industry offers up. So, just as intelligent property owners left urban areas and allowed them to decay on their own during the 1960’s and 70’s, intelligent music lovers have left mainstream pop music and allowed it to become a ghetto, too.

    When I use the “seek” function on the car radio, I actually hear less rap music than I used to, both in style and in frequency.

      Although it is agreed that HIV evolved from SIV, there is no evidence that anybody did this on purpose. Africans eat monkeys and use them in bloody juju rituals so there was plenty of opportunity for the virus to make it on its own.

      Nonsense, the Soviets are the source behind this propaganda.

    You can be quite sure that he would be charged and convicted of racial hatred following a hostile media campaign. It would be given more coverage than the racial murder of a white person by blacks.

      Thats kind of what I thought….I know its not your kind of music, but I have loved british heavy metal for a long time…everything from black sabbath to venom to iron maiden….best regards for a happy and pleasant easter…

    The aftermath of colonialism and slavery I suppose. But any reason will do, when they are unemployable employers are oppressing them, when they turn to crime its because of lack of subsidized projects to keep them of the streets. The left generally makes up what they want to suit their argument.

    Black metal may be technically complex and difficult to play but it is unlistenable. The singling is deliberately harsh and ugly (I suppose to contrast it with Christian music by the likes of Tallis, Monteverdi, or Bach, which is beautiful).

    Andre Johnson of Wu-Tang cut off his penis and jumped from a second story balcony in an attempt to commit suicide.

    We’ve come a long way from Duke Ellington or Louis Armstrong.

    there are distinctions, history may appear to repeat itself but it never quite does. Every generation does not have it’s own exact ‘elvis’ which encompases teenage rebellion against parents. Elvis was a kind of one-time event, there was no attempt at a decade-representing musical rebellion before the 50s/60’s, and ever since elvis and the beatles music has tried and failed to repeat the representation of generational ‘breaking free’ evey few years, with increasingly lamer and less inspiring musical failures. The 60’s were a one-time event and nothing to do with gangster rap or dj’s who aren’t even really musicians, but just talk and put drumbeats over old songs by real artists. I grew up listening to metal.

    Apparently the police “bribed” two eye-witnesses who only “kicked” the victim to agree to give evidence against him as (the) one who cut him. See Daily Mail On-line “The Murder of Pc Blakelock….”

    Same happens in my country- instead of the magic beauty of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares our youth is fed “chalga”: repulsive gypsy-arab-turkish rhythms pretending to be “folk music” with lyrics even more stupid than the hip-hop ones…

    First of all rap isn’t music or art. Thinking that most people here already realize that, my big concern with the story is when they mention BET, Can you imagine if we had a WET? Surely the heavens would open and spew forth Jesse and Al and the fools like mr. dees. Also I don’t think we need a black congressional caucus any longer. This next election let’s get our heads out of commie fantasy land and vote for an American for president.

    I did not say it was the root cause but we here in America have idolized them to such a point that it is insane. When u have to be entertained all the time so u can escape real life then there is a problem. To many kids want to be like them and that is also a problem because no one wants to be engineers or scientists or doctors.

    I noticed this and left a few comments on these topics. I consider him a fool.

  • Rappers like to imagine they’re rebelling against the establishment, but they ARE the establishment.

    Remember Tom Wolfe’s “Radical Chic” ?

  • Stan D Mute

    Wow, I missed this. Here goes a VERY overdue reply which likely won’t be read..

    Negroes never invented an instrument more advanced than beating a hollow log. Therefore any music they make with white technology is at least half white – certainly NOT a product of Africa.

    Second, you’re missing some enlightening and uplifting compositions. I’d be interested to learn how you equate say RUSH with Afro music. Or ELO, Queen, Triumph, Genesis, Moody Blues, any Prog Rock? The lead singer for Queen recorded an opera. Maybe google “symphonic rock”?

    I’d consider her name more of an homage to rather than a “corruption” of the Italian musical term. That is somewhat mean spirited.
