Can you clarify a bit here? Inclusion as in inclusion with mainstream? I'm not seeing the problem then because anyone can be mainstream, you just have to stop thinking, stop being an individual, and imitate a TV character. I think it's gang culture itself that is the problem. Just like 'nazi culture,' for lack of a better term, causes people to act like (*)(*)(*)(*)ing morons and beat people for no reason, 'gangsta culture' can also have a bad effect on people.

The difference is that he's not into 'being a thug' anymore. It's that BS influence that's the problem. Once you glorify "thugg'n" to the degree that dumb teens (sorry buddy!) get caught up in it based on cultural influence alone then there's a problem.
Those who support the erosion of our rights and freedom, concepts people through out history have wanted, fought for, and died for, are likely the biggest fools humanity has ever known.
