Sorry, kids! It’s time for Uncle stjarna to vent again. This time is the veneration of the completely stupid. Bill Cosby was right. This s##t has got to stop.
While there may be a racial element to this phenomenon of the rap culture, I believe that perpetuating this lifestyle is completely insane across the board. Complete, meaningful sentences in the English language are abandoned for street slang. Male clothing becomes hypermasculine, involving flexing, posing, and posturing. Emphasizing power and control, yet somehow it doesn’t involve a belt from showing your buttcrack to the world. Female clothing becomes hyperfeminine, incredibly tight, with an annoying baby-doll twist. Make-up is worn in such volumes that Maybelline is traded in for Sherwin-Williams. For God sakes, hair gets crimped! Make it stop! Make it stop!
Anyway, music is reduced to repetitive melodies, throbbing dance beats, and lyrics that can’t seem to describe a relationship outside of a bedroom. Career interests are sharply limited to drug dealer, drive-by shooters, and/or servicing drug dealers and drive-by shooters.
Why do I think we are saturated with this mindset? Mainly because even the toy shelves and cartoons are pointing at this crap.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!?!?
