It's all f**ked up!
Society is undergoing a massive "urbanization" in which civility has been replaced by vulgarity. Whether we like it or not, one close look at American culture shows that the ghettos and slums of America have expanded into the middle-class suburbs of nearly every major city. I don't mean that the suburbs are overrun with drugs and gangs, but rather that the hip-hop culture popularized in the ghettos of the East and West Coasts has been widely accepted by teens as "cool." If you don't believe this analysis, take a quick read through the introduction to Bernard Goldberg's newest book, 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America. Maybe you'll be appalled, maybe you'll start to wonder, but whatever your reaction, take it with a grain of salt. For the words in these few pages ring true all across this great nation in which it has become all right to "say f**k on a crowded airplane."
