I've been watching horror movies since I was 3. And I've had no side-effects, media influencing children is an absurd thing. Especially since Eminem, has stated many times in his music that it's all fake. Yet people take it as fact about the man. Sure, Eminem is contrived, but that doesnt make him any less dangerous. Rap gave the slummers a voice, but unfortunately that "voice" has been appallingly mishandled, and now rap is a disgusting reminder of the harsh reality in minority America. When six year olds start idolizing rappers, you've got a problem. As a start, we should take the CD's out of the kids hands. media influencing children is an absurd thing Yeah, kids aren't impressionable at all. Nope.
