When someone reads things like this; I don't think they put blame in the right place. First of all parents; need to put a good head on their kids
shoulders. Secondly; no one ever mentions the giant corporations that target so called minorities. The corporations that own music companies, etc. and
the messages that their "artists" are selling to targeted groups? I use the term artists, loosely because nothing on the radio in the last 10 to 20
years is music. It is an advertising jingle, and the singer is a spokes person in a commercial...I wear Timber Lands; buy Timber Lands, I wear Tommy
Hilfiger; buy Tommy Hilfiger etc. throw in a bunch or disrespectful rebellion for anyone except yourself; while you sell it for mass appeal.
This is found in all current corporate music genres not just rap and hip-hop. Think of who the audience is supposed to be to see it clearly.
Without really good role models; ALL children are impressionable and left to their own devices, to figure things out. If you have pseudo role models;
backed up by years of corporate psychological tactics this is what we are going to get: Youths hating, killing and attacking each other.
Music isn't meant to move souls just merchandise, the cost? Our children.
