Why has modern Black American culture become so negative & degrading? Why has the prototypical
Black American culture is lower income, ghetto, & anti-achievement? What it is about modern Black American culture that glorifies anti-achievement, ignorance, & pathological behaviors? Why do so many Black American parents, even though middle class & educated, stress being social over education & intellectualism?
I have another question that is associated with this. Why is everyone always asking or complaining about the poor black neighborhoods and schools? There are just as many white, Asian and Mexican poor neighborhoods and schools, but no one ever talks about them. Why is that? To me that is just as important. Greg.
Yes, but Caucasians & Asians aren't associated with negative prototypes. They are associated w/very, even extremely positive prototypes, particularly the Asian-American community which is one of the most educated & highest earning communitie
Wow, that Q is so [bad word here]. The white corporations are putting this up for upscale white kids. Used to be Cowboy & Indians, Now it's Gangsta style. Who dresses up to emulate? Young White Boys.
It's a standard joke reference in many venues, I'm surprised you missed all of them.
This is an excellent question. I would like to add this to it: who is producing and promoting all this negativity? Why has gangster rap, cynicism, and extreme disrespect towards women replaced soul music and the romantic musings of Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder? Is there an anti-African American force behind all this - or are they doing it to themselves???
Either way, the solution is obvious. Boycott the $hit!!!

The first Black man to become president of US and now gets the chance to meet the Queen and be treated equal like the white masters that enslaved his ancestors. (1) Is this the end of racism? (2) Are we all equal in this world? and (3) will we ever see a black Prime Minister in the UK?

What does Honey Boo Boo mean for American culture?First it was her Go-Go Juice on "Toddlers & Tiaras" and now we're getting to know the entire Thompson family via "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" -- like a trainwreck we can't turn away. Does the show's popularity reflect...
