Really. No rock, no country music, no rap, don't wear a hoodie, don't point your fingers because it might be construed as intent to shoot someone.... am I missing anything else? I guess every kid should sit at home studying or reading the bible.

I was scrolling through the thread but man, that was one of my FAVORITE songs growing up. It was even my ringtone, may have to change it to that!

I just saw that School Bus Is My Limo commercial and it was a shortened version that I haven't noticed before. The part I have a problem with is the hoodie fo a hami, erybodee lookin, wif dat , etc part and it's not in the short version. With it, it resembles wanna be gangsta rappers. Without that part, I must say it does look like just an innocent bunch of urban youth playfully singing and dancing. It's still not something I want to listen to but, it does clean it up without it.

To the person(s) complaining about the video. You are complaining about the way the video made you feel. It makes you feel like it's violent. A kid points his fingers and you say he is emulating a gun. It makes you feel like he is pointing a gun, but he is doing nothing more than pointing his finger. You FEEL like the kids are dancing like skanks, but they are dancing no more provocatively than any kid's dance or ballet that I have attended.

The problem isn't with the commercial, but your perspective. You should all ask yourself the question why you FEEL that way about this commercial. Basing your argument on FEELINGS rather than FACTS is something that the liberals that you love to diss so much do (and this is coming from a self-proclaimed libertarian).

The FACT is, there was no violence, drug use or promiscuous sex in the video, but you imagined it for some reason. Please ask yourself WHY?

I saw it for the first time last night. The ad is crap, I'm trying to figure out why are they selling to the kids, the kids don't make the decision to go to kmart the parents do, the kids make some decisions on what to buy. That ad does not make me want to go to kmart at all, now that office depot commercial with the dad singing and rolling down the isle on a cart gets my attention.

I don't like it because it emulates (in my opinion) a gangsta rap culture that promotes a thug mentality. Tell me where I'm wrong.

For me the issue is a simple one. I've watched those ads several times. Each is intended to portray a lower grade school environment. Based on the totality of the ad content, from the behavior, to the clothes, the "language", the attitude, and all other cultural and/or environmental intangibles, I WOULD NEVER SEND MY OWN FLESH AND BLOOD TO THAT SCHOOL.

That place is crytal clearly a dangerous influence, as well as, potentially physically dangerous and psychologically detrimental to a child of that age. Oh and then within this 'mob rules' environment, the few good apples are expected to acually learn something?

Ask yourselves, honestly, if you would send your own son or daughter to that prison yard for 7 hours a day without your own direct supervision.

It's a racist commercial. There is only one white girl in the video "The bus is my limo".:D

I went to a school much worst than that, we were banned from wearing certain color, kids were making weapons out of lexan to get by the metal detectors... Sometimes you don't get a choice. It didn't influence me, went on to a private university and there was just as much binge drinking, casual sex, drug use

And that was the biggest baptist university in the world were we had to take 6 hrs of religious classes and attend chapel and bible studies for 2 semesters. All those hymns that we sang along to didn't have any effect it seemed.

There are influences and problems everywhere and as much as some people want to blame it on rap music, (the anti gunners want to blame it on guns, feminist want to blame men) all it really takes is for some one to think for their damn self, which is quite opposite from what those here are doing.

What age group do you think they are portraying? I might very well send my son to that school... What are you seeing about the school in the video? Can you tell how it compares to other schools in standardized tests? Can you tell how it ranks against other schools in performance or pass fail rates? Only thing I can tell about the fictitious school from the video is that it appears to have a group of creative black kids. I see no other students, but I assume that there are more than the ones in this video, but have no way of knowing the social or economic makeup of the school population based on the video. Are you really saying that you wouldn't let your child go to a school based on a rap song about a bus ride and new clothes?

Yes, but they are BLACK and rapping so it's ghetto and they are thugs.

Never mind that there are literally thousands of rap songs that do not condone drug use, violence or sex. There are some that do, and since these kids are also rapping, they are emulating ghetto thugs!

Go view their body of work and get back to me where the gangsta rap and thug culture come into play.

Christ, cypher, let's just agree that you and I are highly unlikely to see eye to eye on this one. We're miles apart. No blood, no foul my anonymous internet antagonist.

Oh, come on...answer my questions about the school based on the video. Here, I'll cut and paste them here for you...

What are you seeing about the school in the video? Can you tell how it compares to other schools in standardized tests? Can you tell how it ranks against other schools in performance or pass fail rates?

Are you really saying that you wouldn't let your child go to a school based on a rap song about a bus ride and new clothes?

+1

The commercial lacks diversity and should be condemned by civil rights activists as being inherently unsupportive of our current state media controlled multi-ethnic indoctrination ethic.
