Gangsta Rap

Gangsta Rap

"Censure the messenger to censor the message" is the current message of the National Black Leadership (N.B.L.). "When all else fails resort to legislative dictatorship to demand that others do as we in power say" "Freedom being a wonderful idea as long as it doesn't conflict with our agenda" aren't new ideas. What the N.B.L., stiffly refuses to understand is that yesterday's impotent social cures didn't solve yesterday's problems and simply doesn't address contemporary issues and are antiquated and grossly inadequate to solve today's evolved human rights, social disparities and inequities (e.g., Police brutality, political and environmental racism.) There are active overwhelming, irrefutable, bona fide challenges to nearly every tenet of what was previously labeled as traditional values.

The abusive language and exaltation of violence in most gangsta rap music are the reality of our present day society. Most of us are intelligently-mature enough to realize that by not talking about something won't cause it to go away.
