What’s a “Hitta?”

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?

    Well if you know your history, you'll know that black people in the USA have long been the scapegoat for negativity, and that continues today but in a more subtle fashion. If black people are making money and being media moguls, then there cant be any real racism, can there? But of course only those who spread ignorance are allowed to become moguls. Why? Because that music furthers stereotypes of black people, and even seduces young blacks to follow that lifestyle. White, or any other group of people, looking in on Hip Hop will still see ignorant young thugs with nothing of value to say, killing each other. "Not our problem, fuck em" is what people will say. Of course, there are plenty of rappers out there telling you the real story, like "yea, i sell drugs to get by, but its not glamorous having cops stop you and doing ass searches, so do something better if you possibly can", but that kind of content isnt acceptable, more so could be seen as "Terrorism", because its educating people about the system and why not to accept it, potentially leading to masses of disgruntled black youths challenging the government with knowledge, not just anger. "This cant be tolerated", is what I assume the "Rulers" have to say about it.

  2. Why do you take this song at face value? If this was in another form of artistry such as a movie or play, it would be a different conversation. I dont see anyone looking down upon the Godfather which is basically the same as this song but on a much grander scale.

    Once your able to get past the artist using the "N" word and painting his portrait of having to work on the streets to make money in order to buy items at walmart, your able to get to the "cusp" of the song. Ideas of trust and loyalty with life long friends and family, as well as making sure that the individuals that are closest to you have food and shelter. The song also suggest being leery of individuals who you may not know.

    It seems appropriate for this song to play in the background for the Commissioner as he was speaking to a particular audience who, when hearing this song, would equate the overall positive tone of the story being told by YG to the Commissioner but, obviously thats not something you would point out to your target audience as you strive to fearmonger.
