I agree with the second part of what you're saying, but gangster music, nahh. The music reflects the people. The rapper comes from that situation so what speak is simply a reflection of that environment because that's all they know. And the people listening can't relate to violins and pianos, nor can they relate to "my tracker broke my heart so I'm drowning my sorrow in a bottle of whiskey" you know? I think people listen to what they can (or want to) relate to.
The music reflects a demographic within a demographic. That's like saying country music represents all white people. But people associate gangta/trap rap with black people in general. It's erroneous. BUUUUT, the media (including white owned BET) propogates that and impressionable young fatherless black men are more than willing to imitate their idols who've been purposely (in my belief) placed to sabotage them. And young black girls are more than willing to imitate the behavior and dress that they see as desirable by the idealized idolized cultural alpha males. I'm telling you bro. Gangsta rap plays a major role IMO. Both to ruin the image of black people and to ruin black people themselves.
Well I think it's only fair to associate a certain people to a certain thing if the MAJORITY are participating in an act, it's unfair to those few that don't do it, but if you were to take the time to learn every little thing about every little person it would take you a lifetime. I associate white people with country, classical, and rock. I associate black people with hip-hop, R&B, and blues. It's not that those genre's represent EVERY SINGLE PERSON from that particular race, but it reflects the majority with exception of a few outlying people.
Niggas think they should get reparations just because of an injustice. If that was the case then every country on the planet would owe someone. EVERY PEOPLE AS FAR AS RACE IS CONCERNED HAS BEEN ENSLAVED AT SOME POINT.
Judging from your opinion, you're capitalist, right? The constitution states that a person's labor is their personal property. A laborer is worth their wages. Well slaves, based on our constitution and eventual acknowledgment that black ARE humans, are due their wages. And what usually happens when a deceased person doesn't get their benefit while they're alive? It goes to their next of kin/beneficiary. America became rich off of free labor and left African Americans in the mudwith minimal help to get on their feet. If you believe in any sort of justice, it's hard to deny that the least America can do is give some sort of benefit. Free college or college at a discount?IDK something. At the very least stop setting them up for failure.
This is my opinion.
I am a capitalist for the most part, yeah. But where in the constitution does it say that labor is property? I never heard of that, so I googled it, this is what comes up, although I do agree with the philosophy, that doesn't make it law
If this was about 50-60 years ago, setting Blacks up for failure would be a strong argument, but I think now that black people are so far gone that the government doesn't need to do it anymore, they do it themselves at this point. Like I said in my OG post, Black people are like a self fulfilling prophecy (as EVERYONE becomes with their stereotypes both good and bad) where they become this ignorant race/class.
But the idea that blacks should get something because of poor treatment and injustice is such a shitty argument, Europeans been fucking up the world since they began (even before then with the Nords and Celts) Spanish, Portuguese, English, French, etc. They have it out for ANYONE, even their own people, they didn't target blacks because of skin color, that was simply a byproduct of Slavery. Peep the movie Amistad, there was no mention of the main slave's (can't remember his name) race until the END of the movie, it was simply about the fact that he was property.
