Black KKK

This article is about the death of football player Sean Taylor.

I don't mean to be offensive but this is an article that touches on the African-American society and the internal problems that they face from Hip-Hop culture. The author focuses on the problems with the praising of negative aspects including gangs and shunning academic excellence. He blames this for keeping the black community down in a similar fashion to that of the KKK in the 1800s.

What are your views on this article?
Does your background and inexperience in this area of American society hurt your understanding, if so in what ways?

If a white person wrote this same article how would this change the reaction to the article? How do your prejudices factor into your answer?
