Why do white people and hipsters listen to trap music? I don't understand how any straight white male with a set of testicles can actually sit down and genuinely get inspired when they listen to it.
It's banal, degenerate entry level for shit that 13 year old kids would think is good
Because all the right trendy music press sites told them to and because it makes them look like nice progressive socially sensitive youth.
Funny how for all the insisting these kids do that their liberal arts studies are all about learning to think independently and question everything and everyone, they all look the same, listen to the same music, hold the same tired political beliefs.
And for fuck's sake, if Pitchfork and co. have managed to convince them to take Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift seriously why do you think convincing them to do the same for Young Thug would be any more difficult?
If you live in the South you know that country/redmeck kids love trap music. So many kids wore camo and blasted Waka or Gucci in their lifted trucks on their way to going fishing. Party playlists alternated between trap and modern county.
The dominant culture appropriates other cultures elements into their palate.
People call it racist like it's something anybody does on purpose but it's just human nature.
It is retarded though. And it's driven by the medi, maybe not by media inherently but at least by our current media.
The fact that these less dominant and less "privleged" cultures flock to these media sources (social media) like hotcakes makes this all the worse but it's not like anyones ever going to say anything bad about social media in social justice circles or in any media source.
I think I just said a bunch of stupid shit didn't I.

This, so much this.
Most literature majors at public universities can make it through without even reading that much-- they just have to learn how to write a handful of Marxist/feminist essays and they'll pass with flying colors.
It's simple: ex-hippie professors teach hipster young adults the vocabulary of incessant sensitivity, hipster young adults (armed with technology) disseminate narratives until they become the fashionable opinion, high-schoolers follow suit, etc.
You made a good point on Howard nobody is bashing trap music though. People have came out and publicly bashed various forms of rock music, and most notably disco. Use it even though truck music is for people with an IQ of 16, people will still never bashed it because they are afraid of criticizing black people.
Believe me if I was on stage so I can throw something and I had a mic in front of a lot of people, I would trash that genre in front of everyone
Check this out
The last found out that an actor wore an ayn rand t shirt some years ago, and they are completely obliterated him now because he does not fit into in there echo chamber.
Why the fuck would anyone look to Ayn Rand with anything other than utmost disgust? For fuck sakes, I recognise the radical left of today as complete dumbassery as much as the next sane human being, but why would you idealise the complete polar opposite of the exact same batshit crazy coin?
Though I don't see any reason to get uset at the guy for wearing said shirt. He's probably just like any of the other vapid cunts who wear Che Guevara shirts without having any idea who he is. He thought it made him look cool and well-read, so why the hell not.
Are you fucking retarded? Did you skip all your history classes? All civilisations rise and fall. Check back on how long European civilisation has been dominating the earth.
We're going through the same shit as the Roman empire did. Moral and cultural decadence unmatched by any other period of our history, constant economic instability, polytical instabiltiy caused by the whole thing being such a massive tangled cobweb of circlejerking influence pushing and plutocracy it's a fucking joke, and a drastic disruption in cultural and ethnic homogeneity. And now this entire upheaval of Islam.
We're past the point of no return and no amount of bitching on some irrelevant anonymous image board is going to change it. If you honestly believe you can change the natural course of history that has been repeating itself like a wheel since forever, then you must be genuinely retarded.
trap, unlike indie/rock/punketc. still has the power to upset reactionaries and the establishment. Trap is subversive. Trap is Revolution. Trap is the future. And you just proved my point
Even though acting like bad taste in music spells societal doom on his part was excessive, I think your reaction proves just how much said society has in fact degenerated. It shows how genuinely caring about civilization and cultural integrity has gone from what the majority of the cultural ingroup feel, to an opinion so outre that only a loser with, as you say, no friends or coworkers could sympathize with it. The fact that caring about one's culture has been relegated to the likes of losers on /pol/ shows just how much society has fallen and degenerated, and how quite frankly culturally suicidal the average modern person's views are.
no like hes right though. who is hurt because college age kids listen to Kendrick to appear 'diverse' and 'accepting'? not to mention a lot of people simply enjoy it and dont have some retarded ulterior motives. yes they may have been persuaded to listen to the music they like but fuckers on this board are persuaded to like /mu/core, so who fucking cares? get some priorities.
That's all very interesting, no lie, but could you nice fellas possibly be tempted to relegate this whole exchange to, I don't know, ANYWHERE other than a discussion board for music?
See, this crazy thing happens on discussion boards where conversation naturally evolves from the original topic of conversation, completely related to the board topic, into something else. If you left your room more often you might have known this is how conversations usually do and are meant to go.
