Depression, Drug use, murder, sex, gangs, America.
What do all these things have in common? Well, more than most think. I have seen, in the past years, and over time, a serious moral decline in the United States of America.
First, gangs: With all the recent news of MS-13 preparing for a 'border war' with our newly formed "minutemen" militia in Texas and Arizona, and various people I have personally helped out of gangs, etc., I have come to realize that we have a gang-crime epidemic occuring here in this land of ours.
Through my experience with America's youth and its gang activity, I have discovered something that I have found to be a re-occuring statistic: The fact that gangs are formed because the people within them 'understand' eachother. This may not sound too bad, however, when we incorporate the fact that those outside of these gangs are targeted via violence, we find ourselves at a problem. This happens all too often, however, that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Although I have listened to a few hip-hop songs in my day, (and I admit some of them were entertaining), you can clearly see the message of these songs: violence - sex - drugs. Although yes, they may not do harm to an older, more mature generation, what about the impressionable youth?
