media spin. i know way too many normal brown people to believe the hype. You're smart enough to read through it too when you're being sold a bill of goods.

somebody in the trump thread noted that the man wants to keep us scared…you scared bro?

Of course it is a media spin. Even true for newpapers in Europe and Israel.
But by making such an artificial differentiation the media influences ordinary Jane and Joe. And this on turn is creates fear.

And I know that you know that.

Back
Caught you lookin' for the same thing
It's a new thing, check out this I bring
Uh Oh the roll below the level
'Cause I'm livin' low next to the bass, c'mon
Turn up the radio
They claim that I'm a criminal
By now I wonder how
Some people never know
The enemy could be their friend, guardian
I'm not a hooligan
I rock the party and
Clear all the madness, I'm not a racist
Preach to teach to all
'Cause some they never had this
Number one, not born to run
About the gun
I wasn't licensed to have one
The minute they see me, fear me
I'm the epitome, a public enemy
Used, abused without clues
I refused to blow a fuse
They even had it on the news
Don't believe the hype

Yes
Was the start of my last jam
So here it is again, another def jam
But since I gave you all a little something
That we knew you lacked
They still consider me a new jack
All the critics you can hang 'em
I'll hold the rope
But they hope to the pope
And pray it ain't dope
The follower of Farrakhan
Don't tell me that you understand
Until you hear the man
The book of the new school rap game
Writers treat me like Coltrane, insane
Yes to them, but to me I'm a different kind
We're brothers of the same mind, unblind
Caught in the middle and
Not surrenderin'
I don't rhyme for the sake of of riddlin'
Some claim that I'm a smuggler
Some say I never heard of 'ya
A rap burglar, false media
We don't need it do we?
It's fake that's what it be to 'ya, dig me?
Don't believe the hype

Don't believe the hype, its a sequel
As an equal, can I get this through to you
My 98's boomin' with a trunk of funk
All the jealous punks can't stop the dunk
Comin' from the school of hard knocks
Some perpetrate, they drink Clorox
Attack the black, 'cause I know they lack exact
The cold facts, and still they try to Xerox
Leader of the new school, uncool
Never played the fool, just made the rules
Remember there's a need to get alarmed
Again I said I was a timebomb
In the daytime the radio's scared of me
'Cause I'm mad, plus I'm the enemy
They can't c'mon and play with me in primetime
'Cause I know the time, plus I'm gettin' mine
I get on the mix late in the night
They know I'm livin' right, so here go the mike, sike
Before I let it go, don't rush my show
You try to reach and grab and get elbowed
Word to herb, yo if you can't swing this
Just a little bit of the taste of the bass for you
As you get up and dance at the LQ
When some deny it, defy if I swing bolos
Then they clear the lane I go solo
The meaning of all of that
Some media is the whack
You believe it's true, it blows me through the roof
Suckers, liars get me a shovel
Some writers I know are damn devils
For them I say don't believe the hype
Yo Chuck, they must be on a pipe, right?
Their pens and pads I'll snatch
'Cause I've had it
I'm not an addict fiendin' for static
I'll see their tape recoreder and grab it
No, you can't have it back silly rabbit
I'm going' to my media assassin
Harry Allen, I gotta ask him
Yo Harry, you're a writer, are we that type?
Don't believe the hype
I got flavor and all those things you know
Yeah boy, part two bum rush and show
Yo Griff, get the green black red and
Gold down countdown to Armageddon
88 you wait the S1Ws will
Rock the hard jams, treat it like a seminar
Teach the bourgeois, and rock the boulevard
Some sau I'm negative
But they're not positive
But what I got to give
The media says this

Booooooyeeeeeee!

Seriously tho… How much longer will the carnage go on? How many of us care about conflicts such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for example.
This shit has been going on my whole life, the shootings in North America for the last 30 years of my life. Shit, I just watched some student in Mexico waste a bunch of class mates and then himself last week on Liveleak. It's so sureal I have been desensitized to it.
Quebec- Terrible. What do we do? Go do a march for gun control? Going to get way worse before better.

People always ask me what's the phenomenon

It's just really sad, and I'm a dude, we don't talk about our feelings.

Young male making really bad decisions against a visible minority, I have no fix for that. I'm outraged but feel hopeless as there is no fix for this . Hate spreads faster than knowledge and education.

Soo - appears he was a LePen/Trump supporter.

Time to bring out that "Canadian Values" test the Conservatives were on about?

Its certainly some nut job committing a mass killing but I duno if its a terrorist attack, I think its pretty early on to come to that conclusian?

Terrorism in Canada has run as small as fire bombing porn stores in BC and destroying telephone poles to as big blowing up an airliner full of people.

Or is it because he is white we can now roll out the mentally ill defense.

i'm surprised to see no thread here on the mosque attack in Quebec, even 24hrs after it happened.

i would have suspected a few posters for sure would have made some noise about this. no one cares because it's in Quebec? no one cares because a mosque got shot up this time? is everyone worn out about news stories like this? are US politics simply more interesting? i find the omission it a bit bizzare with the general left and liberal leaning attitude of most people on here.

Syncro, was waiting to see how long this would take.

Interestingly no one has commented on his timings. He showed up at night when it was men's night at the Mosque when it was all me with some children. He didn't show up at another time when could could have killed women as well. But he didn't.

why is it when a white guy does this he's a misguided nut job but if a brown guy does it he's a terrorist?

Because under the definition of terrorist in the minds of most, there is a picture of a brown guy.

Any public mass shooting or killing is terrorism, but people seem to forget this.

was that even a real terrorist attack?

The object of terrorism is to spread fear. Oct 22, 2014 for many was a day of fear for many. CF Bases in Ontario went into full lock down and our spouses where locked in with no contact with us. No one knew if they were safe nor if there was an attack imminent else where. I know I dealt with it the fear that day that the base my wife works at was next, that I might lose her to some terrorist asshole, and have the hard duty of dealing with my daughter with no mother now.

Yep…that is terrorism.

But hey, it's all good because it was just a angry white guy right?

So who is saying this is all good because he's a white guy? Where?

They are calling it a terror attack in the media. They are reporting it to be a white guy. No one is saying it's all good.

It's just another example of an 'ism' wreaking havoc. In this case it seems to be of the national kind.

No mass murder is never all good but I still ask the question
is it really terrorism or mass murder?

Cuz we only need to look south and see Terrorism is being used
to further Trumps agenda

You are still statistically way more likely to be killed
by a white mass murderer in America than a muslim terrorist

I could imagine that there is way too much common sense and reason in this thread for most people scared of those Boogeymen.
