I didn't privation to compose this nonfiction. In fact, I've command hindmost the temptation for the finishing 5 months (since Cam'ron appeared on 60 account). My probability was that the feigning would die fluff at a rate of knots. But with the new flowing of the "Stop Snitchin" race in the media, I cloth it critical that I put an end to the flattery once and for all.
It is surely ABSURD for somebody to bring in that the construct of not snitchin' came from Hip-Hop. This is simply NOT TRUE. The proof is, "not snitchin" is a tremendously severely ingrained facet of our nation's cultural textile. Here are a few areas that show the No Snitchin' Code. None of them have a article to do near Hip-Hop.
Anyone who of all time watched the movie, The Godfather caught at lowest a look of the drastically genuine ITALIAN Mafia. The Mafia was ill-famed for having a symbols of gag when handling near the law. I can't count how lots nowadays I've detected the expressions "rat" or "stool pigeon" utilised in Casino, Goodfellas or even the grassroots HBO round The Sopranos. We are all intensely acquainted next to the "no snitchin" codification in this context of use AND the rigorous consequence for give way this instruction. Is the media wearisome to assertion that these cinema were strictly fictional?Post ads:

Right now, in elementary schools intersecting the United States, teachers can be detected saying, "Stop tattling" or "Don't be a revealing tale" to their students. Is this whichever new trend started by Hip-Hop? NO! I'm positive all of us can call up woman schooled to conclusion "ratting" on classmates at least past in our little life.
Even brood have their own "no snitchin" code. Or am I the simply one who has ever had a classmate who was disreputable for human being a disclosure tale? No one considered necessary to kick up your heels with that child; he/she was normally ostracized by his/her peers. Why does the media indict this "phenomenon" amongst our juvenile on Hip-Hop?
It is true, that we as Black Folk in America have had a what went before of avoiding contact/ human activity next to the police; but this is above all out of mistrust and dread. Need I cue the media of the immeasurable atrocities inflicted upon us by our own "Justice Department"?Post ads:

On top of that, anyone who watches Law and Order as some as I do has seen the law enforcement agency regularly trapping, abusing, coercing and other domineering witnesses. After watching a twosome episodes, even the furthermost prissy national (Black OR White) would regard as double give or take a few deed caught up in a old lag skin.
Yes, the thuggish, ultra-violent and misogynistic atmospheric condition of American Culture have infiltrated (and now appear to dominate) the cheery weather condition of Hip-Hop music. But let's not forget, the aforesaid is VERY TRUE of all new facet of our social group.
Over the final 20 years, visual communication games, songs, movies, TV shows and computer programs have all suffered from a strict psychological state decrease. Back in 1987, Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers subordinate the picture activity global and The Cosby Show was one of the top TV programs. Compare this to the R-rated visual communication games and the ubiquitous use of the speech "Ass" and "Bitch" in T.V. shows of 2007. It is lowland to see that today's doll of Hip-Hop is simply reflective the same changes the American existence is witnessing. Why then, does Hip-Hop ever look to be the darned for our society's ills?
The media advisedly distorts our mental representation of world and diverts our focus from the apodictic danger..... greed! Our land is run by CORPORATIONS, not rule. These corporations preparation bigoted capitalism, which has no decent regulations. They did it! Their liking of investments is bottom line of all their ills. They did it! They OWN & DISTRIBUTE the super-violent picture games, sexually unequivocal songs/ cinema and decently evil TV shows that epidemic disease our minds. They did it! These corporations as well own the awfully one and the same media that we swear on for our day-to-day information, which targets Hip-Hop as the victim for our country's greatest complications.
Put simply, in the language of the anti-government Hip-Hop force Public Enemy, "Don't' acknowledge the hype!"
(P.S. How's that for snitchin'?)
