Seeing as concord is a wealthy town (don't try to deny it, the average (AVERAGE) house is 800k) There are many children who's parents are vice presidents of companies such as oracle and bank of america. Many people are very materialistic (i'm not saying that's good or bad, just a fact) And preppiness is prevalent. There is also a fairly large contigent of skaters/punks/"individualists"/druggies (i'm not saying they are the same thing) probably because of the large sect of preps. There are a lot of broken homes, which possibly lead to the drug/alcohol abuse. All in all however, most concord kids (despite how rich their families are) are just like normal average kids you can find everywhere (and yes we have our fair share of complete and total idiots.)

RAP - The reason our culture of today is going down the tubes; by its inflamatory lyrics Rap encourages todays youth to enbrace a culture of gang related violence, drug and acohol abuse, lack of respect for women and law enforcement. Rappers claim that all rockers do is scream and moan about their problems which rock does not do but more likely modern punk and emo music. They also say that we need a whole group of musicians to make music while they only need one, which might be another reason that their music is so alienating. One of the finer points of music is a group comming together in all its parts to make a song, while rap is mostly words talked out to a beat. Another thing is that rappers say the distorted guitar sounds like a fart ( a distorted guitar is one of the best type of guitars) well if you think that chances are your listining to a bad guitarist, listen to some good guitarist like for example....... jimi hendrix, jeff beck, duane allman, jimmy page, eric clapton, kirk hammit, jerry cantrell, kenny wayne shepherd, and the list just keeps going on. and also thay say that the drums are just hitting things with sticks, let me say its actualy work to play drums...and again thay might be listening to a bad drummer. it takes talent to play rock. so rap take some singing lessons, and pick up and instrument.........a guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, even a harmanica anything ( there is nothing wrong with harmonica by the way). and write about real stuff well your a...more...
Starr Commonwealth is a therapeutic boarding school for both boys and girls. It specializes in Substance abuse, Psychical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, and even the every day family problems. Starr Commonwealth is also known for lying to the families and students. They say that you will have lots of contact with your friends and family while you are away, but no I never was allowed to talk to my friends, and received one phone call a week to my family, each for 15 minutes of time. They also told me we would receive our cell phones and laptops upon good behavior. That was a lie, we were never allowed to have any of those items. The closest thing to electronics we were allowed to have were camera's and cell phones. Every day, or at least almost everyday someone would have a temper tantrum and would have to get restrained to cool down. It was scary. I see this place as a nicer prison. DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS THERE!
