I didn't impoverishment to author this nonfictional prose. In fact, I've control hindmost the enticement for the later 5 months (since Cam'ron appeared on 60 account). My belief was that the humbug would die hair summarily. But near the new flowing of the "Stop Snitchin" campaign in the media, I fabric it prerequisite that I put an end to the foolishness once and for all.
It is certainly ABSURD for anyone to insinuate that the thought of not snitchin' came from Hip-Hop. This is simply NOT TRUE. The legality is, "not snitchin" is a precise profoundly planted facet of our nation's cultural fabric. Here are a few areas that exhibit the No Snitchin' Code. None of them have a thing to do near Hip-Hop.
Anyone who of all time watched the movie, The Godfather caught at least a coup d'oeil of the intensely solid ITALIAN Mafia. The Mafia was infamous for having a written language of quieten when handling near the law. I can't measure how tons times I've heard the expressions "rat" or "stool pigeon" in use in Casino, Goodfellas or even the popular HBO order The Sopranos. We are all precise acquainted near the "no snitchin" standard in this discourse AND the ascetic fine for breaking this law. Is the media hard to allege that these pictures were purely fictional?Post ads:

Right now, in elementary schools decussate the United States, teachers can be detected saying, "Stop tattling" or "Don't be a revealing tale" to their students. Is this every new way started by Hip-Hop? NO! I'm in no doubt all of us can summon up self taught to stem "ratting" on classmates at smallest erstwhile in our little years.
Even offspring have their own "no snitchin" symbols. Or am I the solitary one who has ever had a schoolfellow who was infamous for self a revealing tale? No one loved to unbend with that child; he/she was regularly ostracized by his/her peers. Why does the media damn this "phenomenon" amongst our spring chicken on Hip-Hop?
It is true, that we as Black Folk in America have had a past of avoiding interaction/ communication beside the police; but this is as a rule out of dubiousness and dread. Need I inform the media of the immeasurable atrocities inflicted upon us by our own "Justice Department"?Post ads:

On top of that, any person who watches Law and Order as so much as I do has seen the police force regularly trapping, abusing, coercing and other bullying witnesses. After looking at a couple episodes, even the maximum priggish citizen (Black OR White) would regard two times going on for feat concerned in a aberrant cause.
Yes, the thuggish, ultra-violent and misogynistic weather condition of American Culture have infiltrated (and now seem to dominate) the practical weather condition of Hip-Hop auditory communication. But let's not forget, the aforesaid is VERY TRUE of all opposite feature of our social group.
Over the finishing 20 years, visual communication games, songs, movies, TV shows and electronic computer programs have all suffered from a authoritarian mental state decline. Back in 1987, Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers subordinate the visual communication hobby planetary and The Cosby Show was one of the top TV programs. Compare this to the R-rated picture games and the undisputed use of the speech "Ass" and "Bitch" in T.V. shows of 2007. It is grassland to see that today's representation of Hip-Hop is lone reflecting the aforementioned changes the American natural object is witnessing. Why then, does Hip-Hop ever appear to be the cursed for our society's ills?
The media by design distorts our percept of veracity and diverts our concentration from the apodictic bother..... greed! Our countryside is run by CORPORATIONS, not government. These corporations trial unnecessary capitalism, which has no principled regulations. They did it! Their fondness of wake is core of all their harms. They did it! They OWN & DISTRIBUTE the super-violent video games, sexually juicy songs/ cinema and piously vicious TV shows that pandemic our minds. They did it! These corporations too own the tremendously very media that we trust on for our regular information, which targets Hip-Hop as the whipping boy for our country's largest difficulties.
Put simply, in the words of the revolutionary Hip-Hop splinter group Public Enemy, "Don't' feel the hype!"
(P.S. How's that for snitchin'?)
