Anger In The Streets

Below this post are several vids from different rappers that come across with very strong in your face -from the street language.
This language is how the young people are talking to each other now as I am sure you know if you are under the age of 30.
Personally I do not like this kind of language ,but I firmly believe that if we ignore what is happening in our city neighborhoods and the message the Rap artists are saying we do so at our peril.
There is much anger in the streets of America today.
There is violence ,drugs,and gangs.
Gangs are the number one reason there is violent crime in many parts of American cities.
When you have poverty ,homelessness, parents on drugs,no sense of who you are -then you get pain.
Out of human pain and misery you get anger. You get crude non mistakable in your face obscenity. Why? because that is how their world is.
When life is obscene you get obscene descriptions.
It is clear that many young people are responding to the message the Rappers are saying. Why? Because they can relate to it. What these Rappers are saying is a part of the young peoples world every day.
It is the rage against the lies and deceptions that our government practises.
Rap music filled with anger,pain, and a F.U and the world and what you say don't matter attitude is the legacy.
It is the speaking out about racism ,classism,and elitism,that still exists in America today.
Rap music expresses the feeling of peoples powerlessness to stop, alter or make a real difference in their own lives or the lives of the ones they love.
It is the reality of inner city poverty put to music in a simple graphic cannot misunderstand way.
The pursuit of happiness and the American dream has been shattered for our youth like the illusion it has become.
The young people are angry for they see what has happened to the world.
There is one rule for the rich,another for the poor.Wars ,global warming,and our extinction is very much a reality.
Justice is no longer blind but goes to the highest bidder, money rules, and our prisons are filled with people who would not be there if they had money for a high price Lawyer or their skin was a different color.
The anger in the music is the response to what corporations and governments have made of the world today.
It seems that no one pays attention till someone is screaming obscenities, so I am proud for this blog to be the host for a in your face realty check.
There is anger in our streets and we ignore this anger and it's causes at our peril.
