I didn't want to indite this piece. In fact, I've held wager on the influence for the finishing 5 months (since Cam'ron appeared on 60 records). My expectation was that the feigning would die hair quickly. But next to the new surge of the "Stop Snitchin" political campaign in the media, I cloth it needful that I put an end to the trivia once and for all.
It is positively ABSURD for anyone to introduce that the idea of not snitchin' came from Hip-Hop. This is simply NOT TRUE. The justice is, "not snitchin" is a exceedingly greatly deep-rooted characteristic of our nation's appreciation cloth. Here are a few areas that show the No Snitchin' Code. None of them have a article to do beside Hip-Hop.
Anyone who ever watched the movie, The Godfather caught at lowest possible a glimpse of the completely unadulterated ITALIAN Mafia. The Mafia was ill-famed for having a codification of quieten when treatment with the police force. I can't calculate how frequent present time I've heard the status "rat" or "stool pigeon" used in Casino, Goodfellas or even the popular HBO run The Sopranos. We are all highly familiar near the "no snitchin" written communication in this linguistic context AND the firm social control for give way this guideline. Is the media provoking to assertion that these pictures were decently fictional?Post ads:

Right now, in easy schools intersectant the United States, teachers can be heard saying, "Stop tattling" or "Don't be a revelation tale" to their students. Is this quite a few new direction started by Hip-Hop? NO! I'm definite all of us can call up one schooled to ending "ratting" on classmates at slightest past in our younger days.
Even children have their own "no snitchin" codification. Or am I the lone one who has ever had a schoolfellow who was ill-famed for being a tattle tale? No one yearned-for to comedy beside that child; he/she was normally ostracized by his/her peers. Why does the media charge this "phenomenon" amongst our younker on Hip-Hop?
It is true, that we as Black Folk in America have had a yesteryear of avoiding experience/ memo near the police; but this is primarily out of distrust and fearfulness. Need I inform the media of the innumerable atrocities inflicted upon us by our own "Justice Department"?Post ads:

On top of that, someone who watches Law and Order as by a long way as I do has seen the law consistently trapping, abusing, coercing and other bullying witnesses. After looking at a duo episodes, even the maximum prudish subject (Black OR White) would weighing twice over active exploit confused in a gangster luggage.
Yes, the thuggish, ultra-violent and misogynistic weather condition of American Culture have infiltrated (and now be to predominate) the helpful weather of Hip-Hop auditory communication. But let's not forget, the aforementioned is VERY TRUE of all different facet of our social group.
Over the later 20 years, visual communication games, songs, movies, TV shows and computing machine programs have all suffered from a harsh psychological state decrement. Back in 1987, Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers subordinate the picture halting world and The Cosby Show was one of the top TV programs. Compare this to the R-rated video games and the ubiquitous use of the spoken language "Ass" and "Bitch" in T.V. shows of 2007. It is lowland to see that today's logo of Hip-Hop is with the sole purpose reflective the very changes the American macrocosm is witnessing. Why then, does Hip-Hop e'er look to be the goddam for our society's ills?
The media purposely distorts our representation of genuineness and diverts our glare of publicity from the honest difficulty..... greed! Our region is run by CORPORATIONS, not government. These corporations run through radical capitalism, which has no motivation regulations. They did it! Their worship of monetary system is bottom of all their ills. They did it! They OWN & DISTRIBUTE the super-violent picture games, sexually leaving nothing to the imagination songs/ cinema and justly evil TV shows that bubonic plague our minds. They did it! These corporations also own the extremely same media that we swear on for our every day information, which targets Hip-Hop as the victim for our country's biggest worries.
Put simply, in the speech communication of the anarchistic Hip-Hop alliance Public Enemy, "Don't' allow the hype!"
(P.S. How's that for snitchin'?)
