In Reply to: Ah, whiteys... posted by Brett Maverick Lambert from ( on Friday, June 06, 2003 at 2:47am : missed the boat entirely on the article. It was about perpetuating the myths of "gangsta" life as heard in today's rap lyrics (namely 50 Cent). A decade ago, it wasn't such a myth. But now, though it's still not a picnic, it's greatly exaggerated and embellished. But they're still trying to sell this myth to white teenage suburban boys.

It wasn't about representing the African-American community as a whole.

: : Wow... the article starts out talking about something I know nothing about. The entire first paragraph was gibberish, because I know nothing about this music... not performer names, nothing.

: : Anyway, I'm sure, as with any group of people, that the bad apples are the one you hear about, and there are likely ten others who are nothing like that.
