The measure that criminals go to commit hate crimes is just devastating and harsh. These kinds of violence cause harm and strike fear in people not only in London but also places hearing of these horrific events. Nobody wants to be harassed or attacked for something that certain individuals in their culture did, and be stereotyped as that one
Music, like most forms of art, often shares subjective views with its listeners. An individual favourite song may be the next person's most hated song. Although different factors come into play when determining if music is good or not, there is no concrete definition of ‘good music’. Society continues to label certain songs originating from genres such as hip-hop, blaming the music for violent acts committed within society. In 1994, a 17-year-old shot a cop in Milwaukee, telling police that he was inspired by a Tupac Shakur song to kill the officer (Thurtle, 10 Attempts To Blame Murder On Music).
There has been a long time of Hip Hop that has been reactant, communicating disappointments in a culture around bigotry for instance, in the late 1980 's, quite a bit of what we catch wind of with respect to police ruthlessness, stop and search routines and focusing on dark skinned youth. Americans trusted that hip hop music advanced viciousness, belittled ladies and overlooked drug utilization. Albeit a few people say that the verses in some Hip-Hop music are fierce and advance the wrong esteems, Hip Hop "has decidedly influenced" the way individuals think act and dress. Although Hip Hop in America has also brought great positives to their culture and way of life Hip Hop has been key in advancing social and political mindfulness among the adolescent of today. Rap music teaches individuals from a few alternate points of view and raises numerous social issues.
The death of Notorious B.I.G brought relevance to the discussion regarding conflicts of violence in American rap culture with regards to gang culture within urban black American youth culture. Basu explains how violent events and shootings among rap artists give rap culture a bad reputation which receives a lot of medial attention. However, the violent nature which hip-hop at times carries can be consider to be the tip of the iceberg of the deeply rooted social and economical aspects of the rap culture. In the 90’s, when this article was released, hip hop had gained a lot of economic power in the music industry and it is explained how rap music had become a channel for the unprivileged urban youth to take charge over their own situation and tell their side of the story. Music associated and developed in black culture has, since the 30’s, been marketed and sold by white companies.
Byron Hurt is the creator of the documentary “Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes”. In this documentary Hurt creates valid points of how hip-hop is all about conquering and violence. An author interviewed in this documentary, Kevin Powell, says, “We live in a society where manhood is all about conquering and violence…. And what we don’t realize is that ultimately that kind of manhood ultimately kills you.” This quote is remarkably true –as well as sad.
My review will appear on the internet on a site ‘genius.com’. The tone of my review is critical and analytical. The song ‘Beautiful’, is considered as one the strongest song of relapse (the album) because he had written and raped this song when he was on drugs, and we get to know this from the lyrics.
The lyrics propel the listener and the listener act or react to it. Our young women being one of it targets, and even they sometimes enjoy it, ignorantly. The horrible language, the use of intoxicating drink and drug use is poisoning the minds of the younger generation. Rap music has great effects concerning dress-style and attitudes. The young people and some older ones are consumed with the vulgarity of the lyrics.
Vernon’s case of being the scapegoat at the mass shooting is an example of a satire of the socio-cultural aspects of the modern American media. Although it is evident that it is the US society being criticised in both cases, the targeted themes vary. Pierre tackles the hunger for popularity, even if they have to betray and treat each other badly, “racism, gun-possession, death penalty, fast-food, internet-pornography and its impact on society, general decay of human values and the ruthlessness of the media frame one of America ́s newest and greatest traumas: High school shootings” (Bellerman). On the other side, Salinger is against “phonies”— dishonest, pretentious and dishonest people who do not realise what truly matters in life and hide their true emotions. The extent of his hatred is so high, Holden fantasises about his own place where “phony” people
We shall have to create leaders who embody virtues we can respect, who have morals and ethical principles we can applaud with an enthusiasm that enables us to rally support for them based on confidence and trust. We will have to demand high standards and give consistent, loyal support to those who merit it. We will have to be a reliable constituency for those who prove themselves to be committed... They will be treated in white political councils with the respect those who embody such power deserve. The manifesto that Dr. Martin Luther King embodied to contribute his leadership roles to his fellow ancestors and communities was one of his most powerful accomplishments.
On the other hand, there is also a lot of negativity towards rap. A lot of this is because some rappers, such as N.W.A, wrote songs that demonized the police, such as their song “Fuck the Police,” which talks about the racist tendencies of police. As a result of the group already being very well known, they caused hateful sentiment towards police to be deemed socially acceptable. One negative influence of rap and hip-hop that is unfortunately common throughout rap is themes that condemn certain parts of society, such as the police. Unfortunately, now, there are so many rappers who advocate and even encourage the use of
Moore establishes that the fear being embedded into the audience 's brain by journalistic media is driving Americans into a consumption frenzy. Violent crimes are largely covered by media to instigate said fear, therefore making viewers feel unsafe, and creating a desire to be prepared in case of an emergency, for example, buying guns. According to Moore, this is one of the main factors that causes the high rates of gun violence in the United States, as it creates a desire to own guns, causes paranoia among the audience, and therefore generates an expectation that the firearms will be needed. " In essence, Moore suggests that the media creates an atmosphere of terror by constantly putting the American people on notice of various threats." (Robbers, 83) Gun ownership, violent history, ethnical diversity, and others reasons are also analyzed throughout Bowling for Columbine in order to be proven as false.
In today society media has to stop covering these mass shooting also using these stereotypical names to describe these shooter. Media has been influencing more shooters across America to do these violent acts. While others might say that the media has to cover these mass shootings. Over the years it has been proved that the media glamorizes these shooters which motivates others to do the same. America need to figure out a way how stop or decrease these shooting and possibly help these “Troublesome” shooters Media has been racially profiling shooters of color thugs or gang member also terrorist, but then portrays shooters of the white race as troubled or mentally ill, which doesn’t really make sense because why isn’t the shooter of color also troubled or mentally ill.
The authors use pathos to grab us by our emotions and make us want to keep reading about such a historically powerful but terrible group. To do so they use powerful, livid, and emotional language. Levitt and Dubner help us to remember how terrible the Ku Klux Klan was and the repulsive things they did to not just “black people” but to human beings that did in no way deserve what they had to go through during slavery and even after with language that appeals to the senses. “The early Klan did its work through pamphleteering, lynching, shooting, burning, castrating, pistol-whipping, and a thousand forms of intimidation” (52). Levitt and Dubner start right off the bat using a rhetorical strategy called appeal to pity by very vividly listing the things the Ku Klux Klan did to their victims.
It hate back and forth from the people to the police, once police brutality happens people get angry and try to fight back with negative actions such as trying to beat up policeman or trying to kill them. This major issue can be resolved when officers face
It seems American media has tried to justify many mass shootings, to mental health. It is in the way our society ties these connections that it shows not only our politics, biases, and blind spots but also what it does for those troubled individuals, that acts alone (Metzl, "Mental Illness, Mass Shootings, and the Politics of American Firearms"). It is hard to turn on a news and not hear about the topic of guns, with multiple mass shooting and the push for gun control, mental health is frivolously thrown around for political gain. When people associate extreme violence with mental health and read about murder trials defendants "not guilty by reason of insanity” it is understandable people do not want to be associated with this image. It
