Is today's Rap music destroying our black kids?

20 years ago Rap music used to be more positive and more respectful.

But today's rap is nothing but pure ignorance most younger black boys are brain washed into thinking being a ignorant thug and getting 5 and 6 different women pregnant is so cool.

THAT'S WHY 70% OF BLACK KIDS ARE BEING RAISED WITHOUT FATHER.

    It isn't causing all of our problems, but a lot of the music isnt helping. Music has always been an important part of black culture from spirituals, to jazz, to blue, to soul music. A lot of rap now is promoting ideals that are dangorous for our kids. Whenever someone can say Jewels, Money,or a bloack is more important than someones life you know there is a problem. Now, a lot of the problems have nothing to do with the music, but thinking kids are not influenced by what they hear and don't look up to rappers is stupid.

    TO MANY YOUNGER BLACK MEN WANNA BE IGNORANT THUGS.

    Rap is killing our black kids because today's rap music only teaches black boys to be ignorant and get 5 and 6 different women pregnant.

    The only thing destroying black kids today are black kids themselves.

    I think it's a way of relaxing their pressed feelings.Years ago,Doom accused to Columbine massacre but if there was no Doom,Columbine massacre would be more effective than Hiroshima and Nagasaki.These are similar.

    Sort of, they definitely are a bad influence. But it mostly depends on what kind of environment they grow up in or how they are raised or the people they hang out with.

    if your life is more influenced by music lyrics than school, your parents, plato, shakespeare, or gandhi... then yes, black kids have a huge problem.
