Love’s Gonna Get’cha

Ghetto culture is alive and well in both urban and suburban environments in the US. Auto customization for street fashion markets itself to attract a sort of ghetto credibility that manifests towards the crime and thug subculture. In most cases, the popularity of gang and violent rap stereotypes with fast cash, flashy cars and obese entitlement women, enabled the perpetuation of this most heinous trend.

Living up North and now in the South, the consistency of this unique expression of individuality remains as true to American youth as baseball, apple pie and a white picket fence. The primary difference is the lack of liquidity in which to purchase this shiny bauble on four wheels. In New York, the obvious trend was towards newer often foreign luxury cars that had broad worldwide appeal and provided a sense of well being in a financial upper status sense. In the south, the trend was towards American made late 90’s or earlier vehicles. Large chrome over-sized rims were common. The more crass and boisterous the better. After all, attention was the essential goal. To compound matters, a lift kit akin to the redneck counterpart F150 was also commonplace. One has to blend after all.

Ghetto culture
One has to wonder if Walmart is actually sponsoring this person’s car? I would hope they at least got ample gas money and insurance coverage for driving around in this monstrosity of an attention whore. If the windows were tinted maybe this would not look half as bad! At least, no one could see YOU driving such a behemoth of a vehicle.

Fundamental consumerism is equally destructive as fundamental religion.

As Russian comedian used to exclaim, “America: What a country!”

Perhaps the great rap sage KRS One, could bestow some words of wisdom concerning the American youth’s misplaced consumerist obsession with love of material things.

Because a lot of people out here say
I love my car or I love my chain or or
I’m just in love with that girl over there

That word love is a very serious thing
And if you don’t watch out, I tell ya that

In the US, the media helps to perpetuate the stereotype, often glorifying the ghetto culture in TV sitcoms and movies in which gangbusters, thugs and other lowlife degenerates are portrayed in favorable acceptable fashion.

So where is this destructive subculture exposed?

Taleeb Starkes book is essentially a non-PC, race-realist war report which exposes the many inconvenient truths surrounding the controversial topic of race in relation to the ghetto culture in the US. It provides a stark contrast to the generic liberal victimization rhetoric prevalent in main stream media.

Starkes has identified this black subculture for what it is – destructive, illegitimate, unwanted and uncivil. This books sheds light on a very controversial topic in which overly sanitized PC media has disregarded, instead perpetuating mass victimization narratives. A eye-opening must read!
