Comments: An honest look in a cold mirror

"The mirror is a harsh mistress..."

C'mon, you can't really believe anybody who'd write something as bogus as that would have anything worth listening to.

His entire essay was little more than a string of cliches. The guy doesn't have a clue,so what he does is string together cool cliches and phrases that regurgitate the same race-card pseudo history we've been hearing since the 70s (which got us in the current mess we're in in the first place.)

Black culture failed a generation ago which is the reason why Hip Hop culture replaced it. Now black culture is dead, killed by it's own hand -- Hip Hop culture.

That's right, Hip Hop culture is "anti-culture." Hip Hop culture is about destroying every civil impulse people have. Hip Hop culture glorifies drug usage and black women bashing. It says it's cool to call a black man a "nigger" and a black woman a bitch.

Of course, confused fellows like the one you're beating your drum about say it's all the white man's fault, that it all goes back to slavery, etc.

Bottom line, the race has failed and Hip Hop is the evidence.

That's strange, Ric. Cuz I read what you just posted as a comment and it doesnt strike me as particularly offensive or necessarily incorrect. I don't know where you got the idea that I said it was all "the white man's" fault . . . the entire essay is introspective and designed to get us to look at the future.

Which basically tells me you didnt read it all the way through, or didn't read it carefully. Alas, it's your own choice to generalize as you please, even if you misrepresent the arguments of someone else.

What do you mean when you talk about "'generational post-traumatic' disorder? Someone posted on my blog concerning this, but I'm not sure exactly what it's in reference to.

About a year or year and a half ago, a professor from a college in Oregon was called as a defense witness in a murder trial. The professor claimed that the perp should not be "guilty" because he suffered from some sort of disorder that linked said perp's violence to a historical/genetic/generational response to the legacy of slavery in this nation.

She claimed that she had researched this "condition" and was a supposed "expert witness" in that regard.
