Mainstream media has a strong hold on our society. Whatever they put out, we the people will eat it up and ask for more. Wether you're willing to admit it or not, they have total influence of what we like and dislike. They can take something very negatively evil and make it "Cool" and "hip". For example they can take a gangster/gang banger/drug dealer such as 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, Lil' Wayne, Jay-Z , or Ja Rule and turn him into a hip hop icon. Becoming a roll model for all these young suburban wannabes. They see their war stories told in the their raps and the kids eat them up and idolize these rappers. Leaves me to ponder, what kind of message are we spreading to our youth? The gangster life glorified by these rappers can only keep the cycle going. Glorifying this life style just shows how dysfunctional this society is.
