I was checking out the Five on Fixed News, to see what the enemy was thinking about Sunnunu's "learn to be an American" line. And I found myself watching the generally pointless 4th block of the program that is normally about something stupid like what Justin Bieber did.
This time though they were talking about prescription drugs so I thought I would stick around. The "liberal" (lol) Bob Beckel was introducing the segment since he's the resident druggie. And then Eric Boiling said something flabbergasting . . .
He said (and I'm going to have to paraphrase) until I find a video to give you the actual words . . . "You know hip hop has changed in the last decade and uh they are talking about prescription drugs rather than the other stuff."
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!?! I've heard hip hop blamed for a lot of pointless, ridiculous things: violence against cops, violence at schools, clothes kids wear (as if anybody really cares) and most especially illegal drugs. But this claim takes the absolute cake.
How in the world do you blame hip hop for a problem that is most common among the middle-aged and middle-class/wealthy population? That's not even hip hop's demographic. This is absolutely insane!
And I don't even like hip hop.
