Because all white people are perfect...... At the end of the day it's just an excuse to put some sort of racial slur on all the black youth of America, who supposedly because they are black all carry guns and commit crimes.

That had nothing to do with white people. The cartoon was adressing the problem with black people. Why must the problem with black people always be blamed on the whites.

Aaron McGruder created the show. He is black.

Yes, white people are perfect, and all young black people carry guns. They carry these guns to commit crimes.

I think the point was much rather that the black community is keeping itself down by blaming others and choosing only a certain set of role models to live up to (rappers, athletes and dancers), many of whom don't even deserve a lot of respect (Fifty Cent for example). There have been plenty of great black people in history that they could look up to (B.B.King, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, ...) but they choose to by into the myth that the only way to get out of 'da hood is to rap, dance or shoot hoops.

MLK might say some of this but not the way it was said here. MLK loved black people and would pay attention more to the things that really matter. He would recognize that BET and the bs on that station is a reflection of the weak spots in our culture not the epicenter of it. He would have focused more on the political problems and accountability issues that plague black folks today. I do agree with almost all of the stuff said in this video though.

Really it is something that black people need to see. Here on ebaums most of you young white kids might not see past the degrading message to the self criticism someone black might understand better.

They should've stuck to jazz and blues, ever since rap came out it became the downfall of the black culture.
I kind of agree with this but my moms loved blues music which lead to rock and roll. Blues had the worse most fucked up message you can imagine. It took a pretty niggerish mo fo to write old time classic blues. You had to be an alcoholic wife beater to really write that stuff. Smacking your wife and using drugs was a common theme and rappers don't go there outside of 'pimpin' and weed. Blues musicians used heroine and cocaine and had secret messges for it.

On the other hand hip hop has become an international phonomenon. Rap is so specialized to black people white people can only listen to it. It has not evolved like blues into something other than the impoverished and ethnic origins it originated in. White people moved blues into rock and then, like most trends with white people it faded. Rap right now is stronger than ever.

The worse part of it is the message that being poor and ignorant is okay. Rappers seem to embrace the ghetto and fucked up social practices that will keep people there. Hip hop controls the minds of so many tools who really need to get educated and change their lifestyle. Like I said before the problems in the black community go deeper than that.

This is why America will always be the joke nation of the world. We can't look beyond the color of skin.

Black culture? The leading Rap/Hip-hop Artist that is alive today happens to be White. Frankly, what the fuck does music have to do with culture in this sense; Hip-Hop is so broadly used today you can't stick a cultural label on any single genre of music anymore. That's like saying you Canadians should shut up and stick to hockey & let France continue to rule your country.

Other nations are even worse about it. Some are openly racist and don't see a problem with it. They'll make racist commercials like it's another day at the office.

The top two genres of music are Hip Hop then country. Rock is third. It failed relative to its hey day back in the 50s, 60s, 70s and early 80s. Rock and roll is dead dude.
Who listens to country? I don't know a single person who listens to country music.
I like Rock and Roll the best. There's a Rock and Roll station that I listen to that there's very few songs that I dislike. When I listen to Rap and that Pop music, there's very few that I like. But that's just me. If you like meaningless lyrics, then you go ahead and listen to those Pop singers or whatever they're called and Rap.
I know, however, they don't follow a constitution like us.
It's not unconstitutional to be racist.
