Rap is a type of music that was created in Urban America and has since spread to the suburbs. Therefore it's audience takes in probably more whites than blacks however since most rap artists are blacks, they unfortunately give white people a very negative impression of their way of life since that is all white people see of them.
Rap is a very destructive phenomenon first of all because it undermines values that are necessary for a safe and productive community. Its message preaches that it is okay to kill people, it is okay to use drugs, abuse women and to be irresponsible when having sex. A lot of people that like rap try to defend their music by saying "well it's just music and they're just words. It can't possibly have any influence". If you tried to tell such a thing to Mozart, Stevie Wonder or Miles Davis, they would throw a fit. Of course music can change your mood and anyone who doesn't agree is just doing so because they are dependent on the rap industry for one reason or another. I know all the 50 cents will call me a white piece of shit for saying this but America especially in the black community desperately needs to adopt family values or people will continue to kill people over peanuts.
Another thing rap destroys is the black community. The music was created to vent anger created by years of being oppressed but it isn't getting the black community anywhere. Nobody is sticking it to the whiteman when a black kid is killed in a drive by shooting and the other one is sent to rott in jail for the rest of his life.
If you are a you are a black male who has adopted the hip hop look and you are wondering why you are being profiled by the police, don't blame us white people. Who are we supposed to arrest when people like Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg promote gang activity and say openly "fuck the police". It's a no brainer that the police are going to pick up kids that wear baggy t-shirts and du rags and that well to do white people are going to stay away from the inner city.
In America anyone that wants to make money can whether you are born black or white. The urban youth should use people like Derek Jeter as a role model instead of criminals because he is well mannered, succesful, clean cut and he has good family values.
Rap artists like 50 cent are responsible for creating negative stereotypes about how black people and other minorities are dangerous criminals. The message of gangster rappers have killed way more people than the Klu Klux Klan ever has or will. Gangster rappers should not be made into heros by the youth.
Stop listening to rap, get a respectable looking haircut, maser a productive activity and maybe you will end up with a nice family someday instead of being locked up in a hellish prison wasting the life you were blessed with.
Rap artists that spread evil messages should be on trial and put to death for spreading terroristic ideals.
