Question: I'm writing a research paper about the positive influence hip-hop has on American culture and I was hoping to get some stories or possibly some direct quotes. So if you reply, please be aware that I may or may not be quoting you, so please leave your first and last name. Thanks. Yeah, social security will work too. Smh... and like I said it's for my research paper, if you don't feel comfortable leaving your name ((make one up)). It's not like me or my professor would know.

Well I'm a beginner producer, so it's given me a job opportunity. The rap I do listen to gives me keen insight on certain values of American culture, and how hip hop really effects the minds of teenagers. The rap I don't necessarily like gives me ideas on how to change it. Old school conscious rap gives me more of a reason to be suspicious of my local/state/federal government, not saying anything is wrong with it, but you still kind of wonder. It brings me closer to a lot of interesting and influential people, which is always good. It has made me more politically active, for example I listened to P.E.'s Fight The Power and it made me join my local child government society. And without hip hop my life would kind of be boring and mundane.

Arden Originally Answered: How can a negative minded person see more positively in things n people that is around him?
You've asked a good question, A K. There is so much that can be written in answer to your question (pages worth!). To begin, it's important to decipher why the negative thinking is taking place. Long-term depression? A particular situation that precipitated it? Home or work environment? Relationship (s)? All sorts of factors can be at play here. Why don't you try this and see if it works for you. If this is meant for someone else, then pass it on. Instead of identifying yourself as a negative minded person, try to understand that your thoughts are NOT you. They are mental states that occur within you and are always changing. Believe it or not, if you were to really take the time to observe your thoughts, you would soon find out that not all of them are negative ones. Too often we identify who we are based on our feelings or thoughts (e.g "I am sad" rather than "I feel sad"). When a person is depressed, especially if it ongoing, it is very difficult for them to see the positive in things. In this case, they might want to seek professional help (medications being the last resort). Whether the negative-mindedness is due to clinical depression, the blues or something else, there are a number of things you can do to change this negativity. You can make a list of healthy things you like to do, and start doing them. Getting out for a nice refreshing walk can do wonders for your state of mind. So can eating healthy foods (each meal should consist of a good source of protein, complex carbs, fruits, veggies). Get adequate sleep. Avoid alcohol and drugs (many act as depressants). Mind and body are so interconnected. If you're out walking notice any negative thoughts that might come up (e.g. mentally criticizing the person walking toward you). Acknowledge the thought by labelling "judging" or whatever other label applies. Do the same with other thoughts and feelings. By doing so, you begin to change the way your mind sees these things, because you are not coming from a place of either strongly identifying with or reacting to them. Studies have shown that new neural pathways in the brain are formed when we consciously and repeatedly incorporate what has just been suggested. The same thing happens when we learn to play a new muscial instrument. The new way you think and and respond to things literally creates lasting changes in your brain! By beginning to accept the moment for what it is, you understand that the negative mind states are not permanent; they are always changing; they are not solid. If you don't feed into them by either pushing them away or identifying with them, then they can't take over. You've given these mind states no ground to stand on. Also, reframe negative thoughts, once you've ackowledged and accepted these thoughts. For example, if you're thinking "It's raining outside. It's going to be a lousy day.", try replacing this thought with "It's raining outside. Rain is cleansing and nourishing. I am a survivor. Think I'll go get my umbrella and go for a walk." I hope these suggestions are helpful to you. Your concern for either your own situation or someone else, shows that you care. Good for you.

This is an Era of music that now spans over 2 generations! Everything we do in our culture today is/has been directly influenced by Hip-Hop. The economic push of the Hip-Hop generation has done so much for the world because of the influence of what consumers see in music videos and magazines. Our style is everywhere and is used to ultimately determine what is cool/Hip(Hop:)!

The most important thing hiphop has taught me is probably to push on when things get rough and when the going gets tough you have to keep on fighting for what you believe in and dont give up ..im not leaving my name.

Larkin Originally Answered: Influence of Eve and Bathsheba?
Yes... I got something for you! Regardless of any “free will” the Bible God could have prevented Eve from touching a fruit from the tree of KNOWLEDGE of good and evil simply because “God is love.” EVE HAD NO KNOWLEDGE AT ALL that God is good and Satan is evil! Eve had no “Guardian Angel” assigned to her to wise her up of anything wrong. She saw “that the fruit was good to eat” and she ate of it in all her innocence! She must have thought that God was wrong again. She “knew” by personal experience that God was not that good, after all. God admitted that his original idea of creating Adam alone was inexcusably “no good” because no animal was found to be suitable to mate with Adam. God really wanted Adam to MATE WITH THE ANIMALS. God and Adam looked hard for an ideal animal, “but no help mate was found for Adam!” (Gen 2:18-20). Even the Judaic Talmud Yebamoth 63a, plainly states that Adam had sexual intercourse with all the animals in the Garden of Eden until he FINALLY had sex with Eve… Genesis 2:23 (KJV) And Adam said, This is NOW* (*This is the turning point because “BEFORE” he was having sexual intercourse only with animals!) bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman* (*not “Beetch,” or “Goat,” or “Chick,” or what have you spiritually speaking, of course!) God put together Eve as an afterthought. She was NEVER told not to touch the forbidden fruit. God only told Adam not to touch it! After her fall, God GREATLY INCREASED Eve’s birthing pains that she NEVER experienced before, ALSO AS AN AFTERTHOUGHT! Only a sadistic pervert writing the Bible would come up with so much masochistic smut in a row! The Christian dogma used against same sex marriage that God created ONE MAN FOR ONE WOMAN from the beginning doesn’t square with any of the Bible stories. Christians abuse gays just for the heck of it! Eve was a put-together thing. She was created as an afterthought sometime after the creation time limitation that God set for himself of one week! Nobody knows how many days, weeks, months or years later Adam finally met Eve. By then Adam had a lot of sexual experience with the animals, so he was certainly not acting like a nerd with her! This Bible God now wants Adam and Eve to be a couple of stupid morons WITHOUT ANY KNOWLEDGE of what’s good and what’s evil. Satan was a fine gentleman. He talked Eve into acquiring knowledge! No wonder Lucifer and 1/3 of the angels rebelled against God as soon as they were created! The Bible writers claim that in spite of all the evidence, God was FULLY AWARE of Eve’s impending fall and planned to have God the Son Jesus Christ sent to Earth to be beaten to a pulp, to have him heavily marinated in Roman soldiers’ spit and nailed by the hands to a Holy Cross especially designed for the occasion (1 Peter 1:19-20)! Although, there is no historical record that the Romans ever crucified anybody to any cross in Jerusalem. Our body is too heavy to hang comfortably nailed to a cross by the hands, and be capable of holding long heated conversations with everybody around! Back in the Garden of Eden God set up a “flaming sword moving back and forth” to ban the access to the “Tree of Life” so no matter how much “free will” Adam and Eve had they couldn’t eat of it and live for ever! God also PREVENTED anybody with a “free will” from killing Cain. So why not providing the same protection to EVE, if the Bible God is really not a “respecter” of persons? Bathsheba was a gorgeous sexy woman. King David wouldn’t stop killing anybody to have sexual intercourse with her, and he did, he killed her husband to have her all for himself! After Bathsheba was done having sex with King David she was drenched in royal sperm so she took a shower to "purify herself and be clean” (2 Sam 11:4). She became pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy while God was delighted watching them perform in bed! God planned for Bathsheba to be the ancestor of Jesus Christ through King David! King David had to have Bathsheba’s loyal husband killed for fear of reprisals! She was so happy to become King David’s favorite wife that she never grieved the death of her husband! God had their first baby boy killed in a long and painful death so everybody in Israel can watch the baby suffer and die, and learn whatever lesson God had for them! The baby boy was born in adultery and GOD, not Satan, but God had to kill him! In the case of Eve, The Bible God's punishment was to INCREASE THE BABY DELIVERY PAIN which is something very sadistic because Eve never had a baby yet to figure how much pain there is... In the case of Bathsheba the Bible God KILL THE BABY IN A SLOW PAINFUL DEATH so everybody else in Israel, not Bathsheba and the David would learn a lesson!
