Anthropolgically, humankind seems “wired” to minimize the existance of others for purposes of domination to capitalize on access to resources. The natural inclination for mankind to war with those who are different or with those whom practice or believe alternatively-have long been catalysts for arguements, brawls, conflicts and in some cases the genocide of total populations.
BEEF is nothing new. As a matter of fact, it is merely an alternative phrase used to represent CONFLICT THEORY. However, those that sensationalize the Hip Hop culture, in particular, would have consumers believe that this occurrence is warranted and based on a version of facts that may or may not be actual.
This media fueled epidemic serves as the hype necessary to stir consumer interest in the artists latest album, magazine, clothing line or other marketable product. Unfortunately the “side effects” are the hollowing of cultures and groups that once prided themselves on evoking love, peace, unity and COMMUNAL prosperity.
Establishments also known as BIG BUSINESS, usually based in business operations- have historically used anything that could be seen as “different” against their chosen “enemy” to ward others who would otherwise find the differences to be attractive rather than repulsive. The agenda of the particular Establishment can vary. However, the underpinning of any “BEEF” is usually related to capitalism.
At the end of the day people are engaging in verbal meles for the sake of increasing profitability. People are killing, maiming and demoralizing other human beings because of some contrived conflict stirred by hands that could literally care less whether any group other than their own falls victim to predatory behavior.
I had to add a little levity to a very serious problem among the ethical retardation of those that drive the capitalism steam engines.
