Honestly, this is a true conflict in society, and im glad you chose to come out and say what most people wont. Im only a student, just turning 19. I
have to say it almost disgusts me to turn on tv (which I rarely ever do) and see the stuff that the black people get subjected to on tv. I mean look
at BET, Its just a consumer guide for black people if you ask me, just something showing them what they should be like and what they should buy, it
also seems like it aims at dumbing the dumb down as well (as all tv does with the acception of a few channles). One of the things that bugs me alot,
is the fact that 80% of rap/hip is always promoting some sort of violence, gangs, whores and of course how rich they are because of it. I mean sure
back in the 70's and maybe even 60's music was controversial, but on a diffrent level, refrencing drugs too often. I almost feel bad when I see
young black males, who dress like they are told too, talk like they are told too and worst of all do what they are told too.
And I mean im just graduating high school, and as someone posted before, all high schools have their cliques, like even me, some would say I'm a
"stoner" but in all honesty, look at me, im on a website, voluntarily writing about something I truely care about. But I mean the black clique I
would have to say was the worse to deal with in my school. They would all stand in one section of this one hallways, screamin and hollerin, as if they
just graduated from grade school. I look at other cliques, and they are no where near as rowdy, loud, obnoxious and arrogant. Thats not to say, I have
never talked to them, I didnt shut them out for it. And I'm sure the majority of them are genuinely caring people. One thing I can tell you is that
at my school, when it comes to violence, I would say 3/4 of the fights I seen through my years were between black people.
As I said before, it disturbs me to see black people getting such a bad reputation, and my band mate is even black, so dont even give me any racist
or ignorant lables, cause I'm one of the most open minded people I know, and the reason I express my views soo boldly is because it needs to be
