Just out of curiousity, why are you asking people in the Omaha forum for help in dealing with a Lincoln based rap group?

You know what? I don't live in Omaha anymore... I used to. (thankfully I moved away a long time ago). I think that what you are trying to do here is very noble and I am sorry that most of these people here are either laughing at you or saying it is a worthless point to do anything about this. It is typical of the mindset of most (I didn't say all) Omaha residents!!! LOL. They can support their football team but when it comes to something that is polluting the minds of their youth they are totally against it..

It is amazing to see the responses on your post... Just keep at it.. Eventually you will find someone who cares more about moral values than football.

Not to long ago I made a posting on Lincolns forum about a troubling rap group from Lincoln Nebraska. I expressed my concern over the content of the “Gangster” rap group’s lyrics and suggested community members ban together and take action. Instead what I ran into was many people supporting this group “Dem’ Lincoln Boyz” and even accusing my posting as a viral marketing attempt. I urge you all to visit their myspace and listen to their violent music. I am not concerned about sending traffic to their site because it seems few people visit their myspace. But the music on their site needs to be heard because it shows the type of violent individuals, which reside in our states cities and their efforts to influence our youth through music. As a community we need to do something and hopefully this post can start a much needed public discussion as to what should/can be done.
Thank you all for your time and hopefully as a community we can take action.
Listen to their music yourself and you will see why as a Lincoln resident I am concerned: Dem’ Lincoln Boyz on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

I only hope this violent trend of gangster rap culture can be eradicated in our city and stopped from spreading to yours

Wow!

Too bad it's a Lincoln problem, eh?

Not from Nebraska, never been there, but just stumbled across this thread and I did listen to the music on their myspace and I can guarantee by the sound quality and the lyrics that Lincoln is probably as far as their music is going to go....

I don't have time to worry about types of music are available to kids today.
I am to busy teaching my son not to step on others right to free speech and not to act like you.

Lincoln Love,

Just keep up the good work and you will find support in your town.. You may want to skip over most of the posts here and I am sorry it kind of got off topic... There was a couple of good posts stating that this band's music probably wouldn't last that long. Hopefully for the sake of our youth that is true. Have you considered messaging the band directly with your concerns? It would be a start.

If people started messaging you to stop posting your opinion on the music from the OP or to stop posting about Omaha since you have not lived there in decades would it make a difference? Would you feel as if someone was trying to take away your right to freedom of speech?
