1. Norwegian Mass-Murderer’s “Manifesto” Includes Rants Against Hip-Hop, Schoolly-D.

    According to the 1500 page “manifesto” of Norwegian mass-murder suspect Anders Behring Breivik, Islam and multiculturalism aren’t the only enemies in the “European armed indigenous rights movements.” Apparently Breivik believes that hip-hop is also a dangerous force. As Patrick Rapa of the Philadelphia City Paper reports, in a similar fashion to how Breivik lifted entire passages of his manifesto from Unabomber Ted Kaczynski’s, he also quotes portions of a 2003 essay by American political commentator/linguist John H. McWhorter called “How Hip-Hop Holds Blacks Back.” McWhorter specifically cites gangsta rap pioneer Schoolly-D and his classic “P.S.K. What Does It Mean?” as an example of hip-hop’s degenerate lyrics/behavior.

    When not quoting McWhorter, Breivik blames his own troubled youth on hip-hop’s influence. His days in the mid-90s as a graffiti bomber represented an “intense orgy of misconduct.” Nonetheless, Breivik doesn’t go so far as to suggest that eliminating hip-hop altogether is the solution:

    “As for the fate of the hiphop (sic) industry; banning it altogether is not the optimal solution as it would cause overwhelming short term outcry and it would eliminate positive aspects as well. However, I believe significant restrictions in the rights of media companies which will include censoring negative and destructive lifestyles.”

    PMRC, anyone?
