Why is there a rap thread?

    Journalism is dead, it's been replaced by creative writing.
    Critical thinking is pretty much dead too. I miss the hearsay rule.

  • Because mainstream rap, like mainstream rock and country sucks. So, it'd good to share good isht you unearth and share it.

    You're parents hated your music too, Rocket, so can it. Take a stool softener and go to bed.

    I'm guessing its for those that can't sing, play an instrument, or hum music to post in. Like black being the lack of any color, rap is the lack of any musical ability.

  • Some of Les's best friends are hip-hop artists. So, there's that.

    And why would it be racist? Are most hip-hoppers African American? I wouldn't know, I dont see color.

    On Easter I hid "African American Eggs" for my daughter. I find the term "colored eggs" offensive.

  • As usual you're all lacquered up. (I doubt any of you dolts will catch that)

    When referring to colors, red, blue, green, etc they are all made my mixing other colors. The color black,(as used in painting/decorating, is not a mixed color. Its the lack of any color.

    The person you are trying to attach this to is a "person" of color. An entirely different thing. You know, like saying brain and pehawk in the same sentence.

    Is that a bad example?

    Where the hell is mOngo when he's needed???
