  Resolved Question: Is there any type of
Like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu it was invented by Brazilians but they took many elements from Asians. It's just Jiu Jitsu with a few Brazilian elements taken from it. Is there any martial arts from Black Africans or Arabs? Is there any Martial Arts invented from whites. Don't say Boxing or Wrestling because they are so primitive even a person from the jungles knows how to wrestle. What racism? I'm interested. How is curiosity a sign of stupidity? I want to know if there's any Arabic Martial Arts or African martial arts or European Martial Arts etc. @Kokoro: Istunka is Somali. lol. All the ones you listed are African. Savate is European. Is there any Arabic Martial Arts? @Georgie: Krav Maga is Israeli. lol. Very interesting.

  Resolved Question: Is mainstream commercial
This honestly isn't a question to bash all rap music, because I think rap music is a great source of inspiration and learning for youth, but my question focuses more on commercial rap music. The only reason I ask this question is because we would have to be lying to ourselves if we denied the fact that a disproportionate amount of African American youth listen to and are influenced by hip hop music. Why can't hip hop artists like Nas, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, Common and the Roots (musicians who actively discuss deep social, political, and cultural issues) be the majority when it comes to rap music? While artists like Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, and Waka Flocka (musicians who encourage party promoting, self-degrading, materialistic, violent messages) be the minority? It just troubles me that more people, especially those part of the black community, don't question things like: "why is it that most genres of music marketed towards mainly white people never have negative, culturally degrading, self-harming messages in the music? This includes genres like alternative rock, indie, folk, blue grass, country, techno. Music that is oftentimes marketed towards black youth (hip hop, rap) disproportionally carry these messages in the songs.. with the exception of R&B (which I love), most music marketed towards young black people carry overwhelmingly violent messages and images. I mean, why don't people question why it is that generations of older black folks - people who lived and breathed the Civil Rights Era, for the most part, despise modern rap music and culture? Would Civil Rights leaders and activists like Martin Luther King Jr. be an avid listener of Wiz Khalifa or Drake? I think it's mainly a cultural issue... even though there are plenty of white people who listen to rap and hip hop music, white culture (mainly popular culture) encourages white people to find nice jobs, start families, and enjoy some of the finer things in life (such as traveling, nature, getting a taste for different cultures), meanwhile black culture (or at least stereotypes) imply that black people should aspire to be gangsta, have swag, be real/be hood and further pushes stereotypes that infact discourage black people from experiencing the finer things in life (such as that most black people thing nature is scary, most black people would never consider traveling to Europe or Asia, and that getting a nice job is considered "acting white"). I don't know, I feel that there are a lot of structural cultural barriers that prevent a lot of people in the black people from moving forward. Just a thought.

  Resolved Question: Has the corporate machine
Any one who knows American history, knows that American music almost always has Black origins ( Blues , Jazz, Disco , Rock & Roll you name it ) The artistic creativity of African-Americans, and maybe even Black people generally by extension is undeniable. But I feel that , that creativity energy to create powerful , revolutionary art , has been co-opted by the decidedly non-Black owned corporate machine to send out negativity & chaos into the world. National geographic says Gangsta Rap, is probably one of the most listened to genres of music not just in America, but among youth around the world. Music that can be used to inspire change & hope & positivity, is instead used to celebrate destruction , violence , self-hatred & mysogyny on a global scale. A song like , "Ni99az in Paris " by Jay-Z, has the power to have stadiums of youth ( mostly White ) yelling at the top of their lungs about how much they want to have sex , or party or whatever. That same power never seems to be used to bring attention to the prison industrial complex, gentrification , etc etc Music is powerful , music made by Black people is extremely powerful , but the energies sent out from that music , atleast this latest corporatized version of the genius artform created by African-Americans & Afro-Latinos in the Bronx seems to be sending out all the wrong vibes

  Resolved Question: Do you think Rap music
I think there is no other musical genre that is more of a product of it's environment more than Rap music. Hip-Hop and Rap in general literally came from the slums and projects where oppressed minorities invented their own expression and outlets. Now that Rap music is sensationalized and exposed to the masses do you believe acts like Chief Keef and Trinidad James are unfairly scrutinized and subjected to criticisms and labels like "they are embarrassing black people" or something similar. If you think about it they are only speaking of their first-hand experiences and life. It's not their fault consumers are eating it up nor are they fabricating anything. Of course they GLORIFY the streets but Rock musicians often glamorize sex and drugs as well. Of course the topic of music quality is brought up. Put that aside for a second and consider that Justin Bieber by traditional standards makes sh*tty music and yet no one claims he's embarrassing white people, etc. thoughts, opinions, graphics descriptions of how you popped a molly, WHOO!?!?! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LOZhaxTw0I BQ: Would you join street gang if the only requirement is that you buy all the members 5 bags of Hot Cheetos and a 2 liter Sprite? Consider that there are approximately 9 members in the aforementioned collective of like-minded individuals... To clarify, should we instead be ashamed of ourselves for letting "bad music" become popular instead of blaming the creators of "bad music"? ^^^actually not a clarification of my original question but more of additional information and queries...thanks... a relevant video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ge40dV0Z_8Y
