    Peace, family,

    I wanted to ask why is sex, drugs, and violence glorified in young people's music, but when they engage in sex, drugs, and violence, they are hated for engaging in those activities?

    I believe that the music industry purposely gets artists to glorify drugs, sex, and violence.

    Of course they do. It is apart of the bigger plan to destroy our children.

    We are definitely going to have to take our posts as good parents because the enemy is plotting against our children.

    Couldn't you ask the same of anything that contains sex, violence, or drugs in any depiction?

    People need to stop expecting things to censor themselves to their sensibilities or finding something to scapegoat. It's there because that stuff sells, and it doesn't come with a compulsion to imitate them or consume them.

    No you can't ask the same of anything that portrays sex, drugs, and violence...in the young people's music sex, drugs, and violence if glorified. Everything portraying sex, drugs, and violence does not glorify sex, drugs, and violence but the young people's music glorifies those things.

    It's there because crooked YT people who are the open enemies of Blacks get artists to glorify those things. CHILDREN ARE OBVIOUSLY VERY IMPRESSIONABLE; they imitate things that they look up to, so the enemy (YT people) are obviously plotting against Black youth.

    Peace.

    Groups like the X-Clan, Boogie Down Productions, and Public Enemy sold in their days. If the music industry people really wanted Black consciousness music to sell, they could make it sell.

    Peace.

    Movies, video games, comics, and books do the same thing. Why the arbitrary line?

    Sounds like a job for parenting or education.

    Well promoted artists like Lupe exist, and they still don't pull it in like other artists.

    Record labels and media distribution groups are on borrowed time thanks to the Internet.
