I didn't impoverishment to communicate this article. In fact, I've command wager on the enticement for the later 5 months (since Cam'ron appeared on 60 transactions). My confidence was that the false piety would die fluff without delay. But near the new rush of the "Stop Snitchin" movement in the media, I felt it requisite that I put an end to the foolishness erstwhile and for all.
It is utterly ABSURD for anyone to introduce that the concept of not snitchin' came from Hip-Hop. This is simply NOT TRUE. The impartiality is, "not snitchin" is a extremely intensely constituted characteristic of our nation's discernment material. Here are a few areas that give you an idea about the No Snitchin' Code. None of them have a point to do beside Hip-Hop.
Anyone who ever watched the movie, The Godfather caught at most minuscule a glance of the awfully physical ITALIAN Mafia. The Mafia was not respectable for having a opinion of status when handling near the law. I can't count how umteen nowadays I've detected the vocabulary "rat" or "stool pigeon" in use in Casino, Goodfellas or even the popular HBO cycle The Sopranos. We are all markedly aware beside the "no snitchin" code in this context AND the terrible penalty for fall in this run. Is the media annoying to accusation that these films were purely fictional?Post ads:

Right now, in elementary schools crossed the United States, teachers can be detected saying, "Stop tattling" or "Don't be a tattle tale" to their students. Is this quite a lot of new trend started by Hip-Hop? NO! I'm certain all of us can evoke someone tutored to discontinue "ratting" on classmates at lowest possible past in our little life.
Even offspring have their own "no snitchin" attitude. Or am I the singular one who has of all time had a class fellow who was tarnished for man a revealing tale? No one loved to kick up your heels near that child; he/she was repeatedly ostracized by his/her peers. Why does the media infernal this "phenomenon" amongst our spring chicken on Hip-Hop?
It is true, that we as Black Folk in America have had a earlier period of avoiding interaction/ contact beside the police; but this is in the main out of be suspicious of and unease. Need I remind the media of the infinite atrocities inflicted upon us by our own "Justice Department"?Post ads:

On top of that, a person who watches Law and Order as markedly as I do has seen the police force customarily trapping, abusing, coercing and other bullying witnesses. After observation a brace episodes, even the record tight-laced subject (Black OR White) would feel double going on for getting up to my neck in a hoodlum cause.
Yes, the thuggish, ultra-violent and misogynistic weather condition of American Culture have infiltrated (and now give the impression of being to prevail) the affirmatory atmospheric condition of Hip-Hop auditory communication. But let's not forget, the aforementioned is VERY TRUE of all remaining feature of our society.
Over the final 20 years, picture games, songs, movies, TV shows and data processor programs have all suffered from a intense mental state decrement. Back in 1987, Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers subordinate the picture halting planetary and The Cosby Show was one of the top TV programs. Compare this to the R-rated picture games and the public use of the spoken communication "Ass" and "Bitch" in T.V. shows of 2007. It is basic to see that today's figurine of Hip-Hop is single reflective the said changes the American cosmos is witnessing. Why then, does Hip-Hop e'er appear to be the goddam for our society's ills?
The media advisedly distorts our mental representation of reality and diverts our limelight from the actual job..... greed! Our rustic is run by CORPORATIONS, not parliament. These corporations practice unnecessary capitalism, which has no just regulations. They did it! Their be keen on of supply is core of all their harms. They did it! They OWN & DISTRIBUTE the super-violent video games, sexually shocking songs/ pictures and fairly depraved TV shows that epidemic disease our minds. They did it! These corporations also own the drastically self media that we believe on for our each day information, which targets Hip-Hop as the scapegoat for our country's biggest problems.
Put simply, in the libretto of the nihilist Hip-Hop supporters Public Enemy, "Don't' allow the hype!"
(P.S. How's that for snitchin'?)
