Since the 1970s the Hiphop subculture represented the streets and everything that was wrong with the black family. It has also been a symbol of rebellion against its parent culture – American.
Today the Church has given Hiphop a platform and according to your favorite “Christian Hiphopper” God is raising up “indigenous misssonaries” (a deep word for Hiphopper) in the “urban context” to redeem it.
Well not only has hiphop been an achilles heel to American culture but its also a problem in the Far East.
In Japan, young people are rejecting their Japanese culture and traditions for a now “Black lifestyle”.
I lived in Japan for 10 years and I’ve witnessed Japanese youth emulating the images of Hiphop aka “Black lifestyle”. From conrows, sagging pants to hoochies, thugs and calling each other Ni****. Influence is like an unseen hand, after being exposed to Black Entertainment Television Japanese youth are giving up their identity and replace it with Hiphop.
So if the American ‘Black” church thinks evangelizig youth with Hiphop is the answer, what is the answer in a country like Japan? Do we need to send “indigenous missonaries” to Japan in black face with Jesus beats, and holy hoochies to win them? Hiphop has always been a problem in our society and it continues to destroy cultures around the world. Arigatou gozaimasu Hiphop! You don’t die you just mulitiply!
