BTW, you hate on me for saying the word black, yet you use the word "kafir" which is pretty much the African equivalent of "nigger". good job blacky, your a real einstein.

I am not sure I agree with the premise of this debate, but not firmly against it either.

Many people who look down on black people see rap music as a microcosm of "black culture". They hold up the sexism, violence, crime and profanity in some rap music as being representative of black people, and this justifies their opinions and biases.

This would not prevent them from enjoying rap music that is lyrically well crafted. This sub-genre is not viewed as being justification for their prejudices, but is appreciated for its skill, beats and phrases, similar to how someone can enjoy poetry.

I cam honestly say that I enjoy some rap musicians, but not others, based on whether they have a message or a voice. I do not enjoy generally songs about violence, drugs, or crime, nor those that designate women as these are not things that are part of my life nor are of interest to me. I can occasion enjoy the clever phrasing and lyrics, but generally am not interested. I do enjoy rap with a message or social commentary, however.

I doubt most people break down their taste in rap music in this style, but from those I have talked to it seems a reasonable hypothesis for how people can enjoy some rap, and use others to justify biases.

Please find a different debate to ramble in. That is in no way connected to the topic.

Black is a color of dogs, birds, and cars.
Criminals call as many of the human men blacks as they can, before dying and joining the game in hell where everyone calls each other a black.
That never happens here.
You call me a black and I expose you by calling you the kafir, you deserve to be called by everyone.
Oh, kafirun!

black is a color. it's a description. to deny that is to deny sight.

only a nonmuslim person is allowed to be a black if dead and in hell. Living humans are not blacks, but called such by the allies of Satan.

I can definitely answer that, but do you mind if I ask what from my post prompted that question?

as a side question, Do you hate blacks?

obviously this is based on anecdotal evidence, however I've seen this pattern repeatedly irl, in various media, and Im quite certain 1 or more of the conservatives here also shared this pattern.

it's also funny that these people tend to attribute laziness, crime, and deviant behavior they often hear in this commercialized garbage radio rap to the black population as a whole.
