Waco,TX – It’s time for all “Hittas” to reject Liberalism and their assault on the hearts and minds of our youth. If you’re a “hitta,” then you know what I’m talking about. If you’re not, then you have no idea how radio and the entertainment industry is preying on your children and planting seeds for future chaos.
Since it’s OK to play “edited” versions of obscene songs on the radio, I guess it’s fair to use those same edits in everyday writing. From now on, according to 104.9 The Beat, Black people are now considered to be “Hittas.” Please forgive the next line, but I’m simply using the actual song title and information. The song, “My Nigga,” by YG, with 33,737,235 views (edited version “My Hitta”), was played during McLennan County Commissioner, Lester Gibson’s show on 104.9. (12-14-2013). I realize this may not be your flavor of music, but click the link to get a grasp of how horrendous this is. Granted, the “edited” version was played, but the sentiment is the same. Rewarding wrongdoing.
Now, we all know Hip-Hop is a highly influential cultural force in the Black community, and for many reasons, it has been attributed to degrading the moral fiber of their own community. From the way they humiliate women, by making them sexual objects, to the way they promote the drug dealing lifestyle (as an accomplishment) Hip-Hop has been pushing the envelope (in the wrong direction), using race as a means to push their message.
If anyone resists or calls them out for the broadcast of such offensive content, those people are called racist. They are attacked by the media and made to look like bigots for speaking up against the negative impact on young people. Today, young Black teens want to be a super star, sells rocks on the corner, be a pimp and “roll with gangsta’s.” The lyrics aren’t subtle either. In the early days, radio stations were more careful, ensuring the censored versions were OK to play on the radio. They’d screen for edits and appropriate content.
But today, everything’s fair game. It doesn’t matter what the lyrical content is, as long as it doesn’t say the actual word. It can even sound like the word, but since it technically isn’t the word, they get away with it. Who’s allowing this to happen over public airwaves anyway? Why aren’t citizens outraged?
I know a lot about the world of Hip-Hop. I’ve seen it from the inside. Some of these rappers are expressing their perspectives on life and giving street advice; how to climb out. Others, use their platform to sway the people in the wrong direction. They don’t care about “their people.” It’s just about the “Benjamins.” They make it seem “cool” to be a pimp. They glorify gangsters and promote corruption and devalue women as often as they can.
Is this the culture of the Black community in Waco? Is this “entertainment” agenda working to help improve the Black community? And last, but certainly not least, is this the kind of music we want endorsed by our public officials?
