GANGSTER RAPPERS REVOLT TODAY
Gangsta rap is a subgenre of hip hop that reflects the violent lifestyles of inner-city youths.
We have ALL become attuned to the idea that Gangster Rap and its sub genres are partially responsible for the attitudes, lifestyle changes and destruction of the Black & Urban communities via our youth. But I believe that Gangster Rap can be of significant assistance to our neighborhoods if used affectively.
Racism in today’s world has a new face; within the United States it is now occasionally called the Tea Party Movement. Not all Tea party Movement members are racists, but a significant amount of them now follow the Patriot Movement theories. Patriot Movement groups define themselves as opposed to the "New World Order," engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing, or advocate or adhere to extreme antigovernment doctrines. The biggest and best financially equipped of these is the John Birch Society founded in 1958 with chapters in ALL 50 states.
John Birch Society - The society says it is anti-totalitarian, particularly anti-socialist and anti-communist. It seeks to limit the powers of government and defends the original intention of the U.S. Constitution, which it sees as based on Christian principles. It opposes collectivism, including wealth redistribution, economic interventionism, socialism, communism, and fascism
Other names for groups that follow the Patriot Movement principles include:
We the People
American Patriot Friends Network
Freedom Force International
Second Amendment Committee
Concerned Citizens Party
Florida Free Alliance
Society for American Sovereignty
America First Party
Restore the Republic
Church of God Evangelistic Association
The Southern Poverty Law Center is an American legal advocacy organization, internationally known for its tolerance education programs, its legal victories against white supremacists and it’s tracking of hate groups, militias, and extremist organizations.
The Southern Poverty Law Center documented a 244 percent increase in the number of active Patriot groups in 2009. Their numbers grew from 149 groups in 2008 to 512 groups in 2009, an astonishing addition of 363 new groups in a single year. Militias - the paramilitary arm of the Patriot movement - were a major part of the increase, growing from 42 militias in 2008 to 127 in 2009. This can be directly connected to the election of Barack Obama and the immediate racial outcry detected in America.
And this is the main reason I see where Gangster Rap can be of immediate assistance to the Black & Urban communities. These paramilitary militias need an alternative to help balance the scales of power within this country. Now is the time for America’s greatest gangster rappers to start rapping about inner city realities and against the ever growing racist condition being created by the Tea Party Movement members. Just think how the Black & Urban communities would change if the youth starting thinking about banding together to rid their cities of these Patriot Movement groups. Think what would happen if one of the following rappers would make a “HIT” song that opened the youth’s eyes just to the racist problem that has increased over the past few years.
I believe there is a reason that American commercial radio is playing contemporary music that only condones gratuitous sex, drugs, money, material gain, party and revenge against your own kind. I’m not asking for a love song, in fact I think we need a FIGHT song really soon.
Gangsters you’re always talking about keeping it REAL, well we need you now to Revolt.
