N.W.A: Straight Outta Hell!

N.W.A: Straight Outta Hell!

Today three black kids around 14 to 16 years of age walked in font of my house and threw stones at my neighbor’s new large recreational vehicle parked in his driveway, across the street.

It was broad daylight and the unfolding scene felt unreal!

I ran to my front door and screamed at these punk delinquents to “get the hell outta here!” and they slowly move away while staring menacingly at me. One threateningly picked up a stone and glared at me as went.

Our neighborhood is primarily middle class in make-up, but a few blocks away is a lower-socioeconomic area and each summer our wooded area is rife with various unnerving illegal incidents.

I will put this brazen, menacing, in-your-face, hateful behavior within it’s sociocultural context.

America has had at least five “Post Racial” race riots during the 8 years of the Obama Administration. It should be clear that racial anger and strife has been catalyzed by the Obama progressive administration, his race-baiting cronies and his propaganda machine: Most of America’s news media.

During this time nearly every large city run by progressives has seen dramatic increases in levels of violence, racial tensions, and attacks upon police. Philadelphia, Ferguson, Chicago and New York City are several prime examples. See below:


And now, almost as if “on cue”, America’s poisonously corrupting entertainment media has piled-on with its recent release of “Straight Outta Compton”. A cultural influence which is, literally an figuratively, straight out outta hell.

On principle, I will not pay big money to see this movie in a theater. However, I will force myself to study this movie when it is available through cable. I will do so only because, for decades, I have studied many patterns of cultural decline and this genre of barbaric “entertainment” is just one of the many variables that both reflects and stimulates America’s deepening sociocultural decline.

I can assure you, I am not naive about the origins of this movie. As a college professor teaching classes on the psychology of America’s sociocultural decline, I played a few selections of N.W.A.’s Straight Outta Compton rap-songs for my students. This provided a new smidgen of real-world education for many of my young and adult middle-aged students.

I will commend the following lyrics to your consideration and hope your personal constitution is not too fragile to endure the experience. From among the following rap-songs,  you can pick your own cultural poison.


I have read that the new movie of the same name is a sanitized version of the N.W.A rap group’s original, album, “Straight Outta Compton”.

No matter, the ghetto ‘gangsta’ culture has now been rammed further-up into America’s mainstream and I assure you, no good will come of it.

If this new movie is anything remotely similar to N.W.A.’s album, and  if it inspires America’s disaffected youth, of all races, to purchase their old albums and other similar hateful, violence-spewing, misogynous rap-albums it will certainly stimulate similar behavior patterns that can only be described as Mindless barbarism.

P.S. 1, In case you did not know N.W.A., stands for a now unforgivable pejorative synonym for “African-Americans”-(With- Attitudes). Unforgivable, that is, unless African Americans wantonly use that term themselves.

N.W.A. are the one’s that came up with this “N-word” symbolization…so don’t blame me.

P.S. 2, No, of course, I cannot specify the various factors that motivated the black-teen stone throwers. But, they sure did get me thinking!
