How about the fact that the USA is the home of rap music which to me is offensive, degrading to women, and uses 'racist' language.
That is a really, really dumb comment to make. I'm not even into a lot of this music but it's pretty obvious that not all rap is degrading or uses offensive language.

They have a word for this by the way:

Sarcasm's only usually funny when it actually has some form of relevance. The post is way out of left field with at least the last half a dozen posts.

Thanks MWNN but I was serious. I should have said 'some' rap music as i generally don't listen to it much.

Is that better Chief Ten Beers - and you could have pointed out it was a generalization without saying it was dumb. I think everyone would realise that - whoops - another generalisation :D

i was on the train in L.A where a group of 3 black guys were throwing around the 'N' about once every 5 words, im sure if a white guy like me went up to them and called them that word they would of suddenly been offended.

Sure thing, that is a better way of putting it.

Actually, just last week I found an radio station, via the net, from America that exclusively plays Christian Rap. There's just so many genre's these days it really is hard to generalize music.

That's what I'm talking about! There is so much inconsistency and hypocrisy involved in the way **Some** people discuss racism.

I suppose the big question now is how long will it last?

The reunion shows were okay in a nostalgic sense, but with no Ozzie anymore that is about 18 more weeks of Darryl than I think I could stomach.

If they try and stretch each show out for 3 hours again, people will be well and truly bored of it by the 5th episode.

Has to be 2 hours at an absolute max.
