(AllHipHop News) In the world according to Bill O’ Riley: Kanye West is a gangsta rapper and rap has destroyed the Black youth. During an conversation with President Barack Obama’s Senior Advisor last night (February 27th), O’Riley took the time to attribute gangsta rap to the fundemental cause of violence amongst the Black youth.

Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s Senior Advisor, spoke on Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative that he unveiled yesterday. While O’Riley commends the initiative aimed to offed young men of color the tools they need to succeed, he stated that Obama will need to get “people like Jay-Z, Kanye West, all these gangsta rappers to knock it off” in order to truly help. Afterwards, O’Riley began attributing the problem to a few general social groups:

It’s the gangsta rappers, it’s the athletes, it’s the tattoo guys. You gotta get them in there to tell these kids you got to stop the destructive behavior, because you’re going to end up in a morgue or a prison.

I need some perspective from a rap enthusiast, is Kanye remotely considered a Gangsta Rapper? Is that term even used anymore? I still remember pink polo Kanye, College Dropout was forever ago.

I'm not sure why everyone wants to hand out excuses to the parents of this generation for the situation of some of these kids. "It's the music, it's the video games, it's what's on TV and in the movies." 

 

No matter what, almost any social problem that a kid has started somewhere in their house. 

 

Not to mention, he says it's "gangsta rap" - which has died down quite a bit since the 90's. He says it's the athletes - which I'm sure everyone here can agree are forced to be much softer because of social media, and "tattoo guys"? C'mon, it's so common to have a tattoo nowadays, we all know he's referring to black guys with something gang related on their body.

 

Stupid, stupid comment.

Black youth are fine

 

Impoverished black youth are the problem.

 

It has a lot to do with education which solves a lot, and in my opinion nutrition.

 

 

Much easier to stay out of trouble with a fridge full of food

I think it is parental guidance, or just any positive guidance period, but staring from when a person is young.

 

Goes for all races really, but as for black people nowadays it is almost like they are typecast into certain role and really youths don't question it.

If kids look up to a rapper for an example more than their parents it isn't the rappers fault it's the parenting.   

These people like Bill need to stop deflecting from where the focus SHOULD be. 


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Well the problem is, how are those kids supposed to be educated at home when their parents are 16-17 years old?

exactly the problem.it's not that 16-17 year olds cannot teach children right from wrong... it's just most kids those ages are running off their emotional side of their brain instead of logic and more often times than not... 16-17 year olds know nothing of being a leader or parent for children

I lol'd at this comment. I don't understand how a man can such large generalizations about a culture and still be considered as one of the main voices in our news outlets? Ignorance pleading against ignorance hahahaha, isn't that called an oxymoron?

 

Jeeze man, give me my own show and I'll talk about how the majority of rich America gained their wealth and status off slave labor.

forget the "teen" parents because it's not just that.

 

 

There's poverty and then there are the working class poor.

 

 

MANY Blacks and other minorities fit in the latter.

 

 

If you live in a big city like Los Angeles, where the kid to teacher ratio is ridiculous in public schools, especially the ones in poorer neighborhoods, then you don't get the same education kids in the suburbs or the richer districts get.

 

 

So basically, the people who were always rich or more well to do always have a distinct advantage.

 

So in the late 1800 to early 1900s Blacks were first entering institutes of higher learning in America, but STILL it has been tough to get an equal educational footing in America.

I'm sure if Obama were to "barrage" Jay-Z and Kanye West with an anti-drug/anti-"gangsta" campaign per O'Reilly's suggestion, O'Reilly would be the first to report on Obama hindering free speech or not focusing on more important issues. O'Reilly may be correct in stating that a certain genre of music may negatively influence a certain age group, but there are many more factors that play into any social issue: the family, education, religion, and more. Equally, I strongly believe in the individual and their ability to overcome any barrier. Assuming the latter to be true nullifies Bill's argument, considering that everyone has a choice to listen to any genre of music, which is exclusive from their skin color.

 

In short, Bill O'Reilly is a highly fallacious and partisan political pundit who excels at pushing out infotainment.
