Broken families, poor education, systematic/institutional racism take the cake for that. I'm not going to blame rap for something that statistically already has a high chance of occurring.

Fair enough but it honestly isn't just rap music, it's the entire mentality in these communities.  Criminals don't need music to attract impressionable youth to the lifestyle. It isn't helping but it's hardly going to fix anything if it's censored. :/

Having poor reading comprehension and a poor inability to discern point of view from prose is NOT something I'd be openly admitting guy. I haven't said anything profound or new in that post. :lol

 

A lot of my opinions on NT are dialectical, NTers read it and draw their conclusions based on their own narrow-minded view of reality. Everything i write pisses off both extremes ironically. I could go on a rant about racism that would piss off blacks AND whites because they scan and nit-pick on words that trigger them.

He said he was pleasantly surprised by what you said. I think the pleasantly takes the sarcasm out of it.

I agree, the "kill our be kill" savage mentality must go. It's so ingrained at this point that it just seems part of "black/hood life."

I think I'm going to make a thread about the black community, what issues we face and what can be done to improve it. We accept and embrace too many issues that should be dealt with.

He was surprised, there was no sarcasm in what he said. He was implying that is something i would never say. :lol

We are the only people on earth that can have our gift of music being used to perpetuate and celebrate genoicde and chaos and then be stupid enough to defend it as mere entertainment.

One of those idiots you guys love in the music forum has a song where he says "stray bullets hitting kids"...and in the tyshawn Lee thread I see some of the same dudes in there talking about how sad that was.

If you can't see the ridiculousness in that...That's on you.

The city been on fire lately. Feels like the 90s/Early 2000s again. Hit the 300 mark this weekend. Everybody in Baltimore parts ways saying "Be safe yo". Didn't realize it was weird til I moved to ATL for college.

Random group texts from my moms the other day echoing that sentiment. Been ducked off deep in the county the past 2 years, and feel far removed. Only 10 mins from the city is being far away. I go round the way every now and then, and it's same old same old.

Don't know too much about this situation, but I know some of these youngins think killing is like a video game. Clearance rate still high. They figure it's a 60% chance they beat the case. Most of the murders here are drug/beef related though, so there is always a "motive", even though I personally don't see **** as worth losing lives over.

Rip to shorty. Feel like I've typed RIP too many times to be only 25. Numb. SMH

Thats not even the half of it man. I have lived in baltimore city for 2 years now and post riots it has been a mess. Murder rates are through the roof but "petty" crimes are just as bad if not worse. These kids know they can get away with Breaking and Entering and rob people without the cops doing a thing.

Ive posted it before but my neighbor (a female) was chocked out and robbed of her purse and belonging at 6pm in the afternoon just walking from her car to her house. Last weekend my neighbor right next door got their house broken into while she was home they stole everything and her car keys then proceeded to steal her two cars in the middle of the night. We have had numerous broken car windows numerous stories of house break ins that people woke up for and "ran" the perpetrator off. Man the drugs and the violence in the city is extremely high and criminals basically know they can get away with a lot of it.

Baltimore like a war torn city sick.gif


Shame my grandad growing old in that bum *** city but luckily he's in a decent neighborhood
post #75 of 86
Being from the DC side of town,this still hurts that Baltimore is falling apart. I have plenty of friends from out there or going to school out there or even living in the area. The city needs some real help, but the question is what can we really do to change the culture there?

Almost like we need a community military group to take back the streets at this point. the true law enforcement doesn't really care and it seems that many of us don't care either until it hits home. When people are living a certain life and die as a result, I am saddened that it happened but understand the consequences of one's actions for living a particular lifestyle. However, this situation is different and it pisses me off that a man is dead for trying to give his children a better environment to grow up in.

This went under the radar also because of the attacks in Paris and people fighting that w/ the attacks that happened in Kenya back in April.

I think about this all the time. Like what is the answer.

One thing is for sure the city isn't helping itself. Just recently spending $2M to buy everyone in the city a trash can to help battle the huge rat infestation we have. But ya know rats lives matter....we out here getting robbed and killed that $2M im sure could get spent increasing police presence all around the city.

But like where is batman? Honestly i am against violence for the most part. I never think it solves anything ever. But thinking about people breaking into my house and knowing its ok makes me want to buy a gun. But then you hear stories about these people being connected and if anything happens you become a target....just like this story and they come for you. Violence begets violence. Buts its sad when the answer is "be happy they didn't take your life". Like nah thats not how i want to live....im moving out

The mindset in these communities needs to change before anything. No amount of money or huge police/military presence can do that. Also, one of these ordinary citizens needs to make an example out of one of these criminals during a robbery or assault.

I agree that the mindset of the community needs to change. But keep in mind that's it's taken generations of poverty, deprevation and devaluing of education and the education system, as well as all of the other negatives that comes with generational poverty to get the city in the state that it is. That mindset is going to take a long time to change because it took a long time to form.
post #80 of 86
If they were to start today, it'll take at least 30yrs start seeing great changes in the change of the mindset of the communities. So many things have to be learned, so many resources have to be procured, so much needs to be down to attack the Hydra of generational poverty and ignorance.

Honestly don't know how you could save some of these communities. There's just too much mental damage done with these folks. Long term you should start with the kids but at the end of the day they're still going home to a lot of ********.

I hate to say those folks are lost for life but damn idk...but saving a few is better than none
post #82 of 86
poverty and drugs is and always will be the problem in my city ....murder numbers always crazy but 90% of bodies are drug related or beefs relating to ppl in that life/money owed

You can live a regular life here if you stay out that dope game , problem is the limited options to live good without being involved with drugs ...**** is so deep here that even normal 9-5 types dudes are on edge too cuz u never know when the bs coming to you

And like I always say it's some great things going on in the city , just like any other ...got some ppl living GOOD out here , but it's sad that the majority of residents can't /won't experience the best that Baltimore has to offer
