I didn't poverty to scribble this nonfictional prose. In fact, I've command rear the bribery for the final 5 months (since Cam'ron appeared on 60 transactions). My expectancy was that the dissembling would die downcast quickly. But beside the new flow of the "Stop Snitchin" electioneer in the media, I fabric it prerequisite that I put an end to the baloney once and for all.
It is perfectly ABSURD for anyone to insinuate that the notion of not snitchin' came from Hip-Hop. This is simply NOT TRUE. The legitimacy is, "not snitchin" is a very severely deep-seated facet of our nation's appreciation textile. Here are a few areas that epitomize the No Snitchin' Code. None of them have a point to do next to Hip-Hop.
Anyone who of all time watched the movie, The Godfather caught at least a looking of the intensely realistic ITALIAN Mafia. The Mafia was ill-famed for having a written language of silence when treatment next to the law. I can't reckon how masses times I've detected the vocabulary "rat" or "stool pigeon" nearly new in Casino, Goodfellas or even the popular HBO ordering The Sopranos. We are all hugely acquainted next to the "no snitchin" opinion in this context AND the serious consequence for founder this edict. Is the media exasperating to allege that these films were purely fictional?Post ads:

Right now, in unproblematic schools across the United States, teachers can be detected saying, "Stop tattling" or "Don't be a telling tale" to their students. Is this any new trend started by Hip-Hop? NO! I'm firm all of us can retrieve beingness schooled to reduce "ratting" on classmates at slightest past in our younger days.
Even brood have their own "no snitchin" standard. Or am I the singular one who has ever had a schoolmate who was infamous for mortal a tattle tale? No one sought to theatre with that child; he/she was often ostracized by his/her peers. Why does the media goddamn this "phenomenon" amongst our young person on Hip-Hop?
It is true, that we as Black Folk in America have had a ancient times of avoiding experience/ relations next to the police; but this is first and foremost out of have doubts about and suspicion. Need I inform the media of the innumerous atrocities inflicted upon us by our own "Justice Department"?Post ads:

On top of that, somebody who watches Law and Order as so much as I do has seen the police force customarily trapping, abusing, coercing and otherwise blustery witnesses. After look a duo episodes, even the most puritanical citizen (Black OR White) would have an idea that doubly active exploit neck-deep in a aberrant luggage.
Yes, the thuggish, ultra-violent and misogynistic atmospheric condition of American Culture have infiltrated (and now seem to dominate) the affirmative weather condition of Hip-Hop auditory communication. But let's not forget, the very is VERY TRUE of both other characteristic of our social group.
Over the closing 20 years, picture games, songs, movies, TV shows and information processing system programs have all suffered from a tough mental state decline. Back in 1987, Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers subordinate the video activity international and The Cosby Show was one of the top TV programs. Compare this to the R-rated picture games and the agreed use of the speech "Ass" and "Bitch" in T.V. shows of 2007. It is bald to see that today's logo of Hip-Hop is individual reflecting the identical changes the American natural object is witnessing. Why then, does Hip-Hop ever be to be the accountability for our society's ills?
The media designedly distorts our perceptual experience of veracity and diverts our fame from the honest job..... greed! Our province is run by CORPORATIONS, not elected representatives. These corporations tradition intense capitalism, which has no motive regulations. They did it! Their be mad about of exchange is bottom of all their problems. They did it! They OWN & DISTRIBUTE the super-violent picture games, sexually hardcore songs/ films and decently wicked TV shows that endemic our minds. They did it! These corporations besides own the thoroughly said media that we believe on for our day after day information, which targets Hip-Hop as the scapegoat for our country's greatest snags.
Put simply, in the voice communication of the nihilist Hip-Hop pack Public Enemy, "Don't' assume the hype!"
(P.S. How's that for snitchin'?)
