Not necessarily that of Sub-saharan Africa itself but of the westernised forms in America and here. Just seems vile mostly to be frank.

Indeed. I would never accept it personally. Jamaican is okay but the rest... nah.

materialism, total obsession with sex, pursuit of dominance, crudeness, low on rational debate, ridiculous slogans

Accept, yes they should. To adapt our own to give others as much familiarity as possible, no.

Black culture is very influential; especially in the area of the arts - like music, for example. White musicians would probably see this as a threat from black supremacy. Morrissey brought this up in an interview, after which the press slated him. However, the press also knew that Morrissey loved 60s black artists. Morrissey, of course, wasn't being racist, but rather highlighting that supremacy of one can overtake another almost with dire consquences.

Modern black youth culture has an unhealthy respect for breaking the law.

Is one's inclination to break the law really linked to their skin colour?

Surely a generalisation? Most black err youths don't break the law.

No.

But their culture is linked to their skin colour.

And considering it's "Americanised" rappers, surely it's the fault of white people in America, as African culture was never based on all that stuff.

Yeah alright, I never said they did, I said they had respect for it.

But whatever, I'm not a black youth in Brixton, I didn't have a ****** up youth where da po-leese harassed me, my parents didn't let me skive off school and I didn't start drinking when I was 10 years old, what would I know about what some people have to put up with in life :rolleyes:

I guess as a middle class eurasian I have to have respect for a culture that I find nothing in common with and almost everything to despise. Otherwise, I'm racist, right :rolleyes:

I'm amazed that there are people actually trying to deny that criminality, misogyny, violence and other distasteful elements are glamorised in mainstream black culture.

Obviously, it's not solely a black cultural trait, but it's far more prominent than most of the various Western white, Asian, Oriental (etc) cultures.
