God Damned Young People and Their Rap Music Make Me Angry
The problem with young people today is that they listen to the rap music.
When I was a boy, there was no such thing as “rap” or “hip hop” and we got by just fine. We listened to music by Mr. Lawrence Welk or the Paul Whiteman Orchestra. Decent music with lyrics about shining your shoes, combing your hair and the value of conformity.
But these young people today, they’re all crazy for the rap recordings. I hear it blasting down the street day and night. It’s nothing but half-screamed filth that sounds like it was recorded by a Tourettes patient in the middle of a prison riot.
I’d rather listen to cats fornicating for Christ’s sake. At least they have pitch.
And don’t give me any of this nonsense that it is “urban poetry.” Saying “You ho, get your bitch ass in tow” isn’t poetry; it’s domestic abuse plain and simple.
Back in my day we didn’t applaud when someone yelled obscenities and grabbed their crotch – we phoned the police and had him arrested damn it. We called him “a filthy pervert” not “a major recording star.”
As far as I can tell these “rappers” are nothing but ten cent hoodlums, misogynists and dope smoking high school drop outs. My generation looked up to astronauts, cowboys and Presidents, not droopy-panted half wits with gold teeth waving around rolls of cash and sporting bullet wounds like some kind of misplaced badge of honor.
Here’s a news flash. If you got shot in a war, you’re a hero. If you got shot in the ass while holding up a liquor store you’re a god damned menace to society and an idiot to boot.
And this isn’t about race. It’s about ignorance. White, black…I don’t care what colour your skin is, this is an equal opportunity outrage and I blame all damned young people for this thumping wall of mindless horse crap.
If I had ever spewed out foul-mouthed rhymes and worn a clock around my neck, my old mom would have with fractured my skull with a meat tenderizer and then sent me to bed without Jello.
They should ban it, destroy it and then travel back in time and brain the jackass who invented it.
They listen to the rap music. That’s the problem with young people today.
