I'm a moderate Democrat and am no fan of Reagan by any stretch of the imagination but to say that the message that rappers send to their fans is not destroying black youth is criminal itself.

Hip Hop is a form of expression,an Outlet.While kids may listen to hip hop music,i still don't it contributes to the destruction of Black youth.If Hop Hop really did contribute to the destruction of black youth,there would be more dead Caucasian kids than Black Kids!
Caucasian Kids listen and Buy more Rap music than black kids,fact.
As for Reagan,him and Nancy's war on drugs mixed with his Failed policies did a lot to set poor people back.
Trickle-down economic My a$$!

Man, when I was growing up, all the kids in my area listened to music that was NOT hip hop or rap. Most of the music was about drugs, sex and being depressed (to the point of being suicidal). That wasn't the best stuff for kids to listen to either.

No, hip hop is a reflection and byproduct of the destruction of black youth in America. They didn't start producing this terrible music because they wanted their community to implode, they did it because of the fact. And ignorant white people label it as an expression of artistic talent No, it's shallow, annoying and irritating. I don't quite understand the appeal, never did and never will. Quite thankful for that actually.

I'm a Hip-Hop listener and I hate how its always blaming Hip Hop and the videos for the violence. Why not start with dilapidated schools with 10 year old books and cracking ceilings? I allow my children to listen to Rap and they are doing pretty well in school, it starts with the will of the child to do better.

Then you have mental issues, if a song causes you to kill someone..

You would be the shallow one to even say such a thing. Guess you never heard of Common or Talib Kweli.
