I'm against all gang related bull# that has swept and destroyed America's values for the past two or three decades. I'm sure many of you agree. I guess we need to find a way to tackle this problem and many like it! I know the higher ups could care less and just want to lessen the population by allowing people to kill each other so they can collect our social security and what not. The violence must cease sooner or later!!?

A shame gang rap, violence in movies and tv had to corrupt the younger generation. Too bad we don't have a more fundamental way of thinking with the head on our shoulders! A #ing shame we have o waste millions of years of evolution by wiping our species out by using violence on ourselves! Are we retarded or what?

Thats just bull crap, movies and tv dont corrupt the young. Poverty, social class systems and illiteracy have far more to do with this issue than TV im afraid!

While I agree the title is awful, you sound just as bad with your American bashing. Oh hi irony!

And you just did the same thing by stereotyping... bit hypocritical no?

To OP... we have been harming ourselves since the dawn of time. I imagine we were probably throwing rocks at each other before the advent of useful weaponry. It is a shame that it keeps getting worse and people seem not to care. I wish I had the answer for it.

Whats sad is how we constantly look for an excuse / somone / something to blame for our own actions. Violece in movies, rap music etc etc etc is not the cause. The cause is when a person decides to take an action without thinking it through to the end.

Personal accountability is what is lacking....

It will continue to be lacking so long as we continue to find excuses for personal behavior.

Gangs provide the emotional and financial support that is missing in many families and comunities. Then there's exploitation of younger members by older members for drug sales and to act as enforcers at the street level. To solve this problem the USA is going to have to make some pretty drastic sociological changes, you guys up for that ?

Well, I think its just genius. Red vs Blue, Crips vs Bloods.

If its no longer acceptable to openly hate Blacks, then why not foster an environment that will encourage them to reduce their population themselves? GENIUS. Glad I didn't fall victim to it.

Looking at the title of the OP why shouldn't AAs be upset with black on black gang violence?? Or so as not to upset those who chant "reverse racism" with every breadth who would not be upset with violence on their doorstep???

Is the OP truly amazed! or just making a rhetorical flourish?

Yes, I did. But please, don't misunderstand. I am a Black man and I feel all the "gansta" rap is here to utterly destroy my people. How else would it become popular so quick? How else would these so called "artist" be able to say rap about drugs, illegal by the way, and violence with little to know out cry from formal organizations? Don't give me the 1st amendment BS either, its obviously detrimental to the community. Just as drugs are, but those ARE illegal.

I was hoping it was something more to it than "I hate black folks". Whew...


I see what you are saying when you say it like that. I don't hold a solid opinion as far as rap being the blame, but I definitely agree that there are folks who don't care that they are destroying themselves slowly. I would even be willing to say that they ARE happy to see it just as you eluded to. But (like I said in my first post above) I am not sure what the answer is to stopping it... and not just in the black community. It needs to stop no matter what race because we are thinning ourselves out quicker by the day it seems like. It would be nice if there was a quick, simple, answer.

Although I agree with you about how an individuals actions should NOT be excused because of the media's use of violence, since violence has been apart of humanity for ages. However, media along with upbringing, and whether or not the family structure in that persons life is sound or not, does play a part in what a person decides. Media isn't the main problem, it's the added fuel to an already lit fire. Still, they have a sense of what's right and wrong, however skewed it maybe, and ultimately it's there decision to comit a violent act or not. That goes for all races.

Also to the OP, your title is horrible
It's as if you think black people just started being mad about this yesterday.

Oh no question about it Tsubaki. However, we need to come together and take on this non-sense like we came together in the 60's to get rid of segregation. Divide and conquer is the way to disable any group or groups. If you look at America as a whole we are divided by issues and the black American culture is no different. It's just a microcosom of the whole. This is something we ALL need to realize quick.

In reading your thread title and opening post, I have determined that we have a small mind among us at ATS.

You open your thread with a racist title, then end your OP by disparaging people with intellectual disabilities. To be honest, I am unsure any viewpoint you have, given your smallmindedness, would be worthy of serious discussion. Not without you learning a little more about tolerance of other people. And in between you are completely incapable of pasting a link that works so that we can know what the hell you are talking about (other than racism and bashing intellectually disabled people).

I would also like to point out that, as mentioned by XCathdra, your blaming of music and other media for "gang" behavior is cutting all chances of personal accountability off from the people you are referring to. Gang rap and violent media are not the cause of what you describe, they are merely a symptom. There was violent gangs looooooong before there was rap music, movies, and video games.

I grew up listening to varied music from King Diamond to Too Live Crew and Ice-T (remember Cop Killer?) I also watched faces of death with my friends while we ate things like spaghetti and tried to gross each other out. Between me and my best friend, we had about 10 different Faces of Death movies. I was a typical 80's kid. I was washed in violence and porn, like most kids in my time/location.

Today i am a well adjusted father, married for 17 years, fiercely loyal, no police record, and am a CFO.

So much for your theory that violent media begets violence. We could go on and on and on. Yet there was violence long before media came around. I know it seems all logical and stuff.....but it just isn't true. Correlation is not causation.

There is no Accountability in our society anymore. It's become popular to "pass the buck". The reality is, every single individual alive on this planet right now is fully accountable for the state of this planet, and our society as a whole. That's right, EVERYONE, you, you, you, and of course, me! I'm just as culpable as anyone else. Rather then argue about who is (more) to blame, we need to take responsibility for the current state of affairs, and start working at making it better.

I know a lot of decent guys that are embarrassed about things that go on within their own culture , its not surprising.

I'm of German descent, I think my family history is a thousand times worse, but I don't let it get me down!
