And we should believe an article from a news source run by pasty white guys... why?
2001-07-28 11:32:12 AM  
so if only a majority of 800 blacks don't like rap, that means the other millions don't too?
2001-07-28 01:07:34 PM  
Damn that rap music.
2001-07-28 01:14:51 PM  
And 'whites' don't like limp bizkit, but they're still rich...
2001-07-28 01:15:32 PM  
and the pope ain't catholic
2001-07-28 01:33:08 PM  
Could have fooled me.
2001-07-28 01:45:34 PM  
That's cause rebellious white kids like us better!
2001-07-28 01:59:39 PM  
Hey look. Blacks can be just like us. We can dress them up in polyester suits and they can hand out Chick tracts just like us. Only they mustn't be trying hard enough to be just like us. They play that rap music just to piss US off, even when we could all be the same. Let's help them be just like us. Let's make them be just like us. Now...where's my baseball bat?

it's time to debut the NewsMax gif!

The first line reads like this: "Seventy-six percent of blacks responding to a National Urban League survey say rap stars should not be looked up to." That refers to rap stars' lifestyles, NOT the music they produce. Big difference. This article isn't really labeled correctly for Fark.

Yeah right. And whites don't like mayonaisse. White is white and yes, black is black. The lib's waste more time trying to homogenize the population and create this great big delusional hugfest. Indeed, we all may be 'equal', but's we's still diffrunt. Ain't nuthin' wrong with that.
2001-07-28 05:17:11 PM  
they're just mad that a honkey like eminem could rap his way to more success than any black rapper ever has.

i've been smoking weed all day and i still get angry at newsmax.

there is something wrong...
2001-07-28 06:19:38 PM  
Two things:
1: Bigpeeler, read the artical before you make stupid comments, Newsmax is a harsh right-wing paper. It's the conservatives that are trying to homogenize us in this case, not the liberals. From what I've seen more liberals like rap than conservatives (myself included).

2: I don't think Newsmax is worth our time, it's poorly written and nothing that we haven't heard before. Let's focus on funny news, not agrivating news.
2001-07-28 07:19:33 PM  
Michael. There is no need to read the article. My anger transcends Newsmax or any other agenda driven article. Right wing, left wing, whatever. It's the streets man, the reality of what they are slicing up that pisses me off. On that basis, I stand behind my previous comment.

I do however agree with your second point. I tend to gravitate more towards the humorous bits than the provocative. Some of this stuff gets my blood boiling. Pass me your joint bro.

gots my mind on my money and my money on my mind.
2001-07-28 10:05:47 PM  
No, I disagree. I think all kids should look up to DMX. I mean, he only raped one stripper... and has been busted for possesion... and has evaded more jail time than Robert Downy Jr.. A true role model.

Blacks like rap... so do whites. I've had my far share of listening to that bullshiat that is allowed to be discrimintate and violent under the false pretense that its "art." Of course metal is just satan's tool, and no art, so it should be banned. Just like video games, and free thought. News Max sucks, and now I'm mad for some reason I can't explain.
2001-07-28 10:30:12 PM  
Will the real Slim Shady please stand up? Oh yeah, that's me!
2001-07-28 10:32:04 PM  
I don't not like rap because I'm white. I don't like rap because it bores me. I don't like Pat Boone, Frank Sinatra and Hank Williams Sr for the same reason. What really pisses me off is the dickheads that ride by my house at 3am with the goddamned bass booming, and I don't give a flying sheeit what it is they're listening to.
2001-07-29 02:19:54 AM  
What a stretch it is to even say rap is music. Intricate rhythms, produced largely by sampling, and juvenile free verse, poorly enunciated, does not a song make. I am never surprised to hear about anyone who doesn't like it.
2001-07-29 02:29:22 AM  
Like I like Thelonious Monk.
2001-07-29 03:17:19 AM  
is that Maynard G. Crebs?!?!
2001-07-29 04:28:22 AM  
No, but they love Shirley Q.Liquor.
2001-07-29 04:32:15 AM  
Rap, rappers (I refuse to use the term Rap Artist), rap listeners and anyone who dares approach my face saying Rap is music can all die. Not just go away, but die. I want no breeding to happen. This scourge must stop now before any more musical talent gets snuffed out.

Long live jazz. Substance above style at all times.

Whites like rap because they have a tacit fear of the black race and by cowtowing to the percieved threat, they can gain a semblence of control. Because blacks have long been mystified as the 'better lovers', white women have sometimes been attracted to them. This of course is the ultimate attack against white men. So by riding on the coat tails of blacks and their rap, they become the remoras of the racial sea, trying to pick up what ever scrap of their libido they have left.

Or something like that. (Comments? Donations?)

newsmax has an "anger ray" that they keep trained on the farkers, because i havent even read the article, and i'm mad, too.

i'm white, and i like rap because i like the tight beats. i also love remixing rap songs in my spare time. rap beats can be very original and true rap lyricists have skill and musical talent, so don't judge rap as a whole because you don't like what you hear on the radio. there are different forms and styles of rap music, and each caters to different tastes.

oh yea, and radio sucks nowadays. FARK CLEAR CHANNEL!
2001-07-29 01:26:27 PM  
Lars, that's bullsheeit.

Nostradammit et al,
for someone who likes jazz as you say you do, you know very little about its past. As jazz was just booming its name many culturally elitist people usch as yourself denied that it was music. THat's why they called it jazz. By the way is the definition of music? Just becuase you don't like a type of music, you can't deny that it is music. I don't like whiney ass grunge but I will acknowledge what it is, a form of music.
