Apropos of Nothing

Why on earth do so many critics seem to think that Rap and that whole Thug culture thing sprang forth, fully formed, from the forehead of Zeus?

Are people really so naive as to think that were there not rapping misogynistic pimps and drug dealers, that somehow misogynistic pimps and drug dealers would cease to exist, and all the shit that has been rained down on the African-American nation since they were dragged over in chains would evaporate? The Game existed before rappers were rapping about it, and the Game will exist even were they muzzled, because they didn't start it and they can't stop it.

As much as Don Imus is a tool, we shouldn't lose sight of that.
