It's not really the stereotypes of the gangsters and violence, because that's their choice. My biggest problem is when blacks refer to themselves as "Black America". It just rubs me the wrong way because some 40 odd years ago blacks screamed for equality but now they segregate themselves.

Great thing about the Internet is that you can say all types of things that in real life would cause your black friends to beat your ass.

The irony in this post is falkin hillarious

America is about commerce and no one buys up all that gangsta shiiit more than the little white beyotches in the suburbs like the above poster.

Next time you see a 'gangsta' flashing his bling on TV just remember who bought it for him.

Little white wannabes in the suburbs.

It is simply marketing and all you lil crackas in the burbs who believe in the gangsta myth enhance it, much to the delight of the fake 'gangsta' you see talking about his rims on TV.

Do you honestly believe every rapper is hard as nails and used to move coke by the brick.

Wake up. 99% of black people are hard working normal people held down by ignorance from the likes of 99% of the contributors to this thread.

What is wrong with black people in America?
-the ignorant view that white people have of them because in true American fashion most white Americans believe what they are spoon fed on the TV.

whites make fun of marriage, i don't see them make TV shows, sing about ruling the world?

I don't see asians on TV talking about studying 24/7 or about small cocks..
.

but for blacks, thats all you see on TV and on the radio.

You just basically proved what Knoe said. You dont see those things because THEY DONT SELL!!! White people dont want to/wont pay to see those things. However they WILL pay to see the typical black stereotypes. And what Knoe said what right on the money. You didnt mention black shows like The Fresh Prince, The Cosby Show, Family Matters, Roc, A Different World, Girlfriends, One On One, Eve, Martin and I could go on. What stereotype are they perpetuating? Why dont you start looking at something other than music videos and maybe you wouldnt ask such a ignorant question. Do you really think that blacks made 50 cent rich? No it was WHITE KIDS who want to imitate and act just like him. Why dont you ask why that is, why do little suburban white kids WANT to be gangster.

You can tell by my name that I usually dont agree with Knoe (he's always knocking my team and Kobe) however he's RIGHT ON THE MONEY this time. And to answer your question, they do it because they can get rich off white folks that's why.

PS: the thread wasnt made about Know IT All, it was made about the black community. And yes, if you consider yourself black you are apart of it.

WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS MEAN????????

Why dont you look at something other than music videos and maybe you might actually learn something about black people. It's funny you call someone else ignorant and your dumb ass cant even put together a legible sentence.

Maybe the thread wasnt worded properly but why focus on that instead of the intended issue. YOu have a unique ability to divert focus from the actual topic at hand.

Show me the statistic proving this, just because you say it doesnt make it a fact.

how come these "role models" don't help out their own community?

these people should also help kids focus on going to college, get an education, but all bball players before this year just jump straight out of high school to the NBA. They should know that not everyone has god given talent. Help some of the people in their communities out man.

ALso, the Game, he raps about being a college drop out...you know how many kids he influences by telling them college is useless...look at me, i'm a successful rapper. now every kid will try to be a rapper and just drop out of school.

So every white kid wants to kill their girlfriend and mother because Eminem said he wanted to? Knoe is right you = idiot.

you say i don't read....why don't you read a bit...even those blacks advocating "blacks do not reinforce their own stereotypes" admit that the media uses these stereotypes to sell.

what i'm saying is....these are the same people blaming whites about the media reinforcing black stereotypes...idiot
