    As of lately, I've been seeing topics like "black people are cooler that whites" with comments like "Blacks are scary" etc... I've also seen the obvious hateful remarks towards arabians. I may be mistaken, but the act of destroying property, ie, graffiti, is an act AGAINST capitalism! When graffiti started, it wasn't a bunch of true blue stuck-up shitheads. It was young, lower-class youth trying to get their messages, whatever they may have been, across to the public due to the fact that they would otherwise have been left unnoticed a midst the dense population and society's myths and hate. WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED?!

    i hope some of our Afghanistan (sp?) brothers catch a tag all over the forehead of that Terrorist bastard while he's sleeping.

    like some "shit head" across his forehead. haha that would be great,.......but realisticly,

    back to topic. what ever happened to unity and understanding?not only in the world and graffiti, just everything.

    People are so apt to throwing a rock at another human rather then trying to communicate to solve problems.

    if only people took the time to think before acting.....to think before saying.

    to think

    what happened is what happens to every sub-culture: its started by a few eccentric people who aren't scared to go against the norm and do things you're not supposed to do. then it catches on a little more and a few more do it, then after it is well established, the type of people who would have originally viewed it as bad, view it as good. this happened to Jazz. it was originally a black thing that the white majority scoffed at, then over one generation it was embraced by whites. it just recently happpened to punk and hardcore. we are currently witnessing this happening to hip hop, and graff. In 10 years white rappers will be no big deal anymore and white parents wont be alarmed that their kids like hip hop anymore. i think thats why its important that graff be illegal, so this process of erosion occurs at a lot slower rate than the rest of hip hop.
    my two cents

    grafitti and hip hop are unrelated, sorry to break that to you, and, it has been my experience that people who shout about the corruption of the art, end up doing more shouting than painting, and eventually quit; saying that 'it's all played out now' or something...

    oh god, PLEASE PLEASE don't turn this into a stupid "graff and hiphop" thread. i never implied that they were the same, just that they are going through the same type of transition

    right on! About to post something exactly like you just posted but you beat me too it, right on. If you fucks feel like being REALLY patriotic then how about stopping undermining existing private property laws (laws intended to keep the ruling class STAYING the ruling class) and go buy some gap clothes?! Or be a cop.
