... aside from your post being nearly incomprehensible due to run-on sentences, I think I know what you're trying to say.

And it's a bad idea. Rap isn't corrupting our youth. Irresponsible parents who have no clue what their kids are doing and don't much care; THAT'S what's corrupting our youth.

Agreed to the 70th power. (wtf?)

Yeah, even as someone who doesn't like rap ... nearly at all, I honestly don't think it's as bad as most make it. There are some raps songs that I've heard out there that are pretty bad, like one with DMX and wear he's f**king a corpse ... but yeah, still I'd say it's mainly the parents fault if they're the ones not telling their children what's right from wrong.

I can understand you don't like rap and neither do I, you would think something like death metal would be more tainting, but its not.

The solution to getting a better youth, lies in the hands of the responsible adults and Iron Man the native american superhero.

Oh gosh ...

I dislike rap, pull stop. It's not a type I would listen to. But rap can not be banned, it's something that is stuck to american culture and which is slowly spreading. It's just something I personally don't enjoy listening to..

That's the sad thing.

Honestly, America "is" the center for Rap / and Pop, and music like that.

Then Europe's got all the good metal.

And Australia is full of country singers it's really interesting when you look at it, like I wouldn't expect Europe to be a metal based country, I picture that more American.

Yeah america was The rock/Metal central in my mind in the 70-80's era, were greats like Led zepplin, The ramones and rolling stones dawned.

But now its just all about rap. For me i hate it way too much. it takes no talent to make at all. they dont play instruments, they just mix beats together i can do that in my basement, and throw in some stuff about fights, and hey i got a album

But it cant be banned with all the people who are for it, and believe being all tough and gangeter will get them somewhere. Which comes down to what Xeo said, extremely bad parenting, espically on the albanian side. ughhh.

I don'the like rap/hip-hop AT ALL! Im sorry to fans, there might be something you like about it but to me its just a bunch of untalented black people getting paid huge sums of money for sitting there, rhyming at the end of every sentance, talking about being "in the club" and having "26 inch rims." Oh! let's not forget objectifying women! I dont see why they get paid so much....I wouldnt say ban rap, just pay the rappers the wages of a factory worker, because those guys work harder.

Why does it seems that people's ignorance seems to show itself when the topic of Rap is brought up?

The idea of banning rap is ludicrous. If you're going to ban rap, you mine as well ban all other objectionable music. Slipknot, Manson, Korn for example. Don't get me wrong. I listen to all three, but it's not fair to target one particular genre of music.

It does take talent to rap. Producing songs does take an amount of skill, and so does coming up with the lyrics. Not to say that all rappers are good, but generalizing the talent of most rappers to be bad is wrong.

Rap does influence alot of today's youth. And usually not for the good. But there are worse things then Wiggers running around talking about how badass they are.

They say the kids that were involved with Columbine were motivated by the music they listened to. I'll give you a clue, they weren't listening to rap.

Rap pretty much takes everyone's mind thousands of years back to the simple thought of "I'm cooler than you because I think that I dress, act, and talk cooler" It teaches people to have no respect for others, take what you need, and hate a different race that doesn't hate you anymore. I wouldn't say a ban, but if MTV confined it to 1 or 2 shows and started playing the metal again, our culture would get back on track. Some metal bands do have terrible values but they won't convince you to bang 3 girls consecutively, buy $120 shoes, or have 5 pounds of shiny material on your neck. MTV has had a grip on our youth culture ever since it was invented, and a shift away from rap would make a huge difference.

Are you serious? You honestly think rap is a form of agression against caucasians? And I don't know what fairy tale world you're living in, but there still is hate amongst all races. Just most people are intelligent enough not to lower themselves to such a level.

And I can understand where you think that 'Banging 3 girls consecutively' is wrong, but how is buying $120 shoes or expensive jewelry something wrong.

I would much rather my kids listen to that then music telling them to kill their neighbor, slit their wrist, and rape somebody.

(irrelevant words omitted, doesn't change meaning)

Sure is pretty wasteful, in my opinion.

I won't say I know everything there is to know about rap. I don't. Judging from certain posts made by certain individuals, there's quite a few people here who don't know everything about rap, and are just repeating the common opinion of it. Rather than pretending to know about it, why not admit your ignorance of the subject and move on? It's not that painful. I've already admitted it, and I don't have any gaping wounds or anything.

I don't listen to rap because I don't like it. But, some people do. Surprise, surprise, it's popular because some people actually like it! Who'd have guessed? Surely very few people here.

People, find more worthwhile things to spend time thinking about than what form of music needs to be banned - this isn't a completely censor-run society, and no type of music will get banned no matter how many people beg for it. And even if it was banned, how do you propose such a ban be enforced?

Are you serious?

For one, the genre of rap has no sexual preference. ( I know what you mean, I just don't like the use of that word.)

You don't like rap because they rap about their problems? You're obviously completely oblivious to rap completely. Usually people complain that all rappers rap about is what they have, not what problems they have. Eminem makes his money rapping about his problems, but not many other rappers are daring enough to do so.

Rap does not equal Emo.

I'm just wondering, what kind of music do you listen to TF?

Okay, I'm going to give a lowdown on flamming for an obvious reason...Flamming is basically being mean and downing something pretty much...racial remarks and such would be a perfect example of flamming....and just to let ya know, flamming pisses me off royally...so if you're gonna do it, don't let me catch you, m'kay?

Forgotten, your posts are flamming, and if not then they're bordering it, which really isn't okay either. If you don't like rap, feel free to express that, but the next "black" comment I hear and it's an automatic warning, got it?

As for my opinion. I dislike rap. It's just not my type of genre. **shrugs** Do I think it should be banned? No. If people are going to say that discrimination is wrong, but say that rap should be banned then I find that hypocritical. I happen to like every type of music immaginable except for rap, but I don't down it. I want to be treated with respect for the music that I listen to, so I'm going to respect others for the music they listen to.

Not all rap artists is bad, just people like 50 cent, making songs like "candy shop" are the real ones that stick out and make rap look bad.(in my mind)

Even though i hate rap to death, i would like to see it banned but it just aint gonna happen, if they ban rap then everyother genre has to be banned cause they all have their bad songs. Just my opion.

Really the only reason why i hate rap, is cause they dont really play instruments, not a whole lot of talent and thought goes into their songs.

I also hate how they make thier followers think their all bad ass .i have a real problem with wigger albanians at my HS, i wanna punch them all in the face SO DUMB!. You know them right ginji? You go to DHS, or CVHS?
