First of all, the "Hip Hop" culture has be commercialized and twisted for a higher market appeal. The Hip Hop that was started in New York by artist such as KRS ONE is not the hip hop today. It was started for Black people for Black people. It stands for Higher Infinite Power, Helping our People. It's really easy to target the culture that you were a casual listener to but it goes deeper than that. I'm not defending the use of it but we fail to even look at the parents that allow their kids to use it. Blaming "hip hop" is a strawman tatic.

It goes deeper than that and if you would like, we could take this discussion to PM/

** So thanks to "hip-hop" and gansta rap, they totally ruined our society for their arrogance. Like taking a dump on everything the previous generations had to fight for tooth and nail during civil rights demonstrations, civil war etc

I think you have to look at it historically. African Americans/Latinos/Carribeans were stolen/sold from their lands. Their cultural identity was shattered they they were reduced to one name or Color; (Negro/Black). The bastardized pronunciation of that (N**ger) is the huge problem today. I think that Black Americans (switching the (ger) into (ga) did that for one main reason. That is the only word that was used to acknowlege them. It became their only identity. I personally believe that's why "gangsta rappers" used it. The slave mothers called their kids the same name and it has been around for generations. The problem lies in the usage. The elite used it as a term for dehumanization while the oppressed used it for identity. I don't teach my kids that word the same reason I don't allow my kids to use the term "Hafu".

It's awesome that you guys know some bible verses about swords but why not try and stick with John 3:16

There are a lot of people bashing him for his military service but the guy was really looking out for veterans in his own way. Something the US gov seems to be really inept at doing right now. Anyone that volunteers their freedom for a country even if it is a crappy one with citizens that calls them "mindless baby killers" has my respect more than a keyboard warrior any day.

Are we still talking about Kasai's picture with that kid? That's not porn.

Try watching some, you'll notice the difference quite fast.

I'm glad there is a bright side to all of this beside that kid's pasty sun dodging complexion

At least we know that everyone has a firm grip on what they consider porn.

I don't think that you can call or label porn as easily as larson or robbery.

I personally don't get off on people: beating the crap out of each other with whips, bounding and gagging making yellow snow cones on each other eating each others butt brownies out of a cone

but someone's flag pole gets raised watching these in the privacy of their home.

Personally I think they are being exploited with a marketable image that certain people flock too.

Wow "Cain" Tsuyoshi

You had a couple of options

1) finding a better job since you felt that your skills were worth more in the market 2) providing your brother with a much better reason than "Hey, I'm your big brother" 3) going to a bank 4) etc

I know it was sick version of road rage and it was definitely a crime of passion but now you have to live with your little bros. blood on your hands and the tremendous loss of face that goes with it.

I'll pray for you

"That's where the Gaijin come into the picture, so go out and pick up those women!! Many are dying to have some attention, and the Gaijin factor doesn't hurt either. If the Japanese men can't satisfy them, then somebody else can."

Wow. That is a douchebag stater kit instruction manual if I ever read one.

"I tell you something, most Japanese women are actually really into their Japanese men, and wouldn't give the time of day to the regular foreign dude here. Those charisma men days are long over LOL"

Great point. But if Japanese women are human and their affections aren't being reciprocated here, don't be that guy on the Maury Povich show trying to figure out how he got there

I don't get it. If they thought that he was and danger but could not prove it, why didn't they just beat the living Sh!t out him like they usually do when they need some "cooperation".

Defend or Condemn, it seems that the Police are going out of their way to make themselves the nicest buy the book, 15 year old groping, 18 year old raping, Nepali beating, public servants out there.

That guy probably would have gotten a free ride into the 9:07 Odawara if he was there.

I 'msure that there are some really good cops out there protecting Japan from each other but I just haven't met any.

OMG. I'm not blaming Psy or the buttloads of butthurt Coreans that keep posting "yea yea. F5 what" "He is talented" "Kpop/Kdramas are so good even Japanese love them"

Get off of your inferiority flavored butthurt pony.

I'm not saying its bad but when all I see is "why you no like gangbang style" "he is so talented" I start headbutting my keyboard (and I'm running out of keyboards)

I'm actually happy for Psy but in reality he has about as much talent as Rebecca Black and....

Talk about Blair Witch amnesia. It is just the "found footage" genre returning. I think the real killer is sequels. When you have more Saw movies than Star WArs movies, its time to put that horse out of its misery.

I agree. I think you will find a leprechaun riding a unicorn before you see that especially during rush hours

"It floats both ways. One thing I don't like is the way old people stare at me with judge full eyes because I am white... Don't think I am being overboard, to all other gaijin, you must agree with me right?"

That used to bug me. Now they get the Heath Ledger joker smile anytime it's longer than 3 secs.
