    My friend in Omaha Nebraska has a hip hop magazine where he wrote an article about the state of children in this country I emplore you to go and check it out, then come back to this thread and discuss it. It will soon be a three part article looking at the children, the school system(s), and of course the parents. Check it out, here's a link.....what's wrong with these **** kids???

    Well, it's harsh, but sometimes people need to be spoken to directly for them to truly see themselves. He's not talking about the single mothers and fathers that do their job, he's speaking to the ones who are poor excuses for parents. I think it was on point, and look forward to reading more.

    The delivery is crude...but I understand what he is saying. I have said the same (and seen the same) in other areas. Maybe he feels his approach will reach people in the streets...I hope so.
