The gangsta, hip hop culture celebrates pretty much everything the Ten Commandments forbids. Along with the unlawful use of both guns and violence. But I repeat myself.
Take, for instance, Waka Flocka Flame, real name Juaquin James Malphurs from Atlanta – and his 2010 “tune” “Bustin’ At Em“. No, we’re not going to embed it.
It celebrates shooting at others, and at the same time, the singer simply dodges and swats away bullets fired at him because, well, because he is such a cool guy.
And the “urban” community wonders why so many young men in their midst are dying at the hands of other young black men, right? The Ku Klux Klan couldn’t have created a better pop culture to hobble the African-American community than gansta hip-hop.
And Malphurs’ song, which repeats the line, “Bitch, I’m bustin’ at ’em” over and over is a poster child for this destructive pop culture so popular in our time.
So, aside from young black men acting out the lyrics on a daily basis in Chicago and other cities across America, it’s not surprising when the occasional idiot who idolizes this garbage does something stupid, unintentionally.
Such as when a 22-year-old Rodney Patrick, who should know better, was acting out that video and popped a cap in his girlfriend’s little brother’s face. Because nothing says, “Happy Valentine’s Day I love you” better than shooting your girlfriend’s little brother in the head, right?
Of course, man-child Patrick initially blamed the little brother for “accidentally” shooting himself in the face, however when the police showed up, the evidence didn’t match the story and Patrick later copped to killing the 17-year-old little brother.
You know, we didn’t have this problem in the old west. Back then, if Rodney Patrick did something like this, he would already have been had his neck stretched from a tree and been buried by now.
MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (WESH) —Deputies have charged a man with manslaughter in the shooting death of a 17-year-old in Merritt Island on Monday night.
According to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, 22-year-old Rodney Patrick was acting out the lyrics of a Waka Flocka Flame song when he picked up a gun he thought was unloaded and fired it.
The song, “Bustin At ‘Em,” features lyrics such as, “shoot first, ask questions last.” It also shows bullets flying.
Douglas Winslow, 17, was killed.
