Kids are sold songs like this:
I shot dread in the head, took the bread and the landspread Lil' Gotti got the shotty to your body So don't resist, or you might miss Christmas I tote guns, I make number runs I give emcees the runs drippin when I throw my clip in the AK, I slay from far away Everybody hit the DECK
Then they're sold violent video games like this:
"Scarface" has a so-called "balls meter" that fills up when you shoot people, and when you taunt your freshly dead enemies. When it's full, you can press a button and go into a "Blind Rage" that temporarily changes the game into a first-person shooter. Doing this not only makes you invincible, you'll actually gain health with every person you kill.
Then they're sold $279 jeans with picture's of murdered black men photocopied on them. And after listening to murder glorified in music, and practiced for hours in video games, seen repeatedly on TV and in the movies some 16 year old boy gets shot dead everyone looks at each other and asks how this can happen. Follow the money and don't look so surprised.
