OK, let’s clear up some things right now since the global media—including people in India (I didn’t know they had electricity in India) are pouncing on the shooting in a Cincinnati nightclub where 15 people were shot, and as of this writing one has died. I live in Cincinnati, so this is my turf and let me just set the record straight—the people attending the Cameo Night Club on Kellogg Avenue by the great Lunkin Airport were not NRA supporters. The place caters to the hip hop crowd and is known as a “meat market.” It’s not a bunch of wholesome Midwesterners getting together for a barn raising ceremony. The place seeks to cater to a youth market—specifically college kids—and the environment is conducive to the gangsta’ culture so prevalent in urban areas where government welfare checks are handed out like candy. So while covering this story—make it known that it wasn’t the fault of guns—it was the culture of hip hop which breeds negativity among confused youth who are easily provoked into conflict.
The people who attend these clubs are not normal Americans—everyday people who work hard, pay their taxes and try to make the next generation better than when they found it. These are young people gathered together to listen to violent music racially inspired who take part in a culture of victimization. Intellectually they are not much different from animals and when dogs start fighting over the same piece of meat—we all know what happens. You can’t mix angry music with young people not yet intellectually equipped—and sell overpriced drinks to a dance floor converted to a VIP area and not expect there to be violence. The Cameo Night Club has built its reputation pushing that line and now people crossed it. That is the real story. The entire shooting could have been avoided by not putting all those dangerous elements together. It’s a cultural problem, not one that involves guns.
As the evidence is presented, the story will be watered down when it is shown that the responsibility is more cultural and of the direct responsibility of the club itself than the firearms that were used. I know that area on the east end well down by Lunkin Airport. The site called Cameo now used to be Annie’s which was a rock and roll hang out that brought in big name rockers after their 80s hey days were over. And there were fights there all the time—the same as Never on Sundays in Silverton. Those crowds were largely white rock n roll types of the heavy metal verity. That was music for a different generation and yes they were violent places—even back then. If two guys had their eye on the same girl, fights did break out—often. Now that Annie’s went out of business someone thought it was a good idea to bring hip hop music out into the east end so this Cameo place took over to essentially let people live out their fantasies developed while playing the video game Grand Theft Auto. So not only do you have an indicatively violent activity that comes with all places that play angry music—but now you have an entire generation who has played Grand Theft Auto and want to live out that fantasy in real life on weekend nights—which the Cameo club was happy to facilitate. Now it blew up in their face and people will have to be accountable. In the hours that come, you will find dear reader that things occurred just as I have described and now that all these media outlets have covered the story hoping to make the gun the big villain everyone will have to backtrack when they realize that the cause was the violent hip hop culture itself and the mixing of very dangerous elements together which caused this tragic situation.
There are consequences to actions and for too long we’ve all allowed ourselves to look away from this growing problem simply because white culture has been blamed for slavery so nobody is allowed to point out the obvious. If blacks and whites, red people and yellow people and all people in between are going to live in the same country they need to have at least the same values. But you can’t have a bunch of slum dogs celebrating hip hop gangsta’ culture openly and expect a society to thrive. There is nothing good about a place like the Cameo Night Club. That culture is rotten from top to bottom and I would say the same about the nightclub that was there before it in Annie’s. There was nothing good about those places that perpetuated the benefits for mankind. They were places to listen to angry music and pick up people for sex under drunken conditions. Not a good mix. And that is the problem. It’s not firearms.
As this story unfolds it’s time to have the real discussion that is the root cause of these violent neighborhoods. We can’t expect black communities to assimilate with the rest of the American experience when what they think is a fun time is going to places like the Cameo Club and cappin’ the ass of cops. We already have too many generations of people who come from urban communities that think that way and they are having kids and teaching them the same stuff—and it’s time for it to come to an end. Instead of wasting their time in the Cameo Night Club those stupid kids should have been home reading A Tale of Two Cities, or something similarly productive. Things will only change when they change what they put into their minds. Because what they are doing now just isn’t cutting the bacon.
