Pit bull culture examines the relationship between rural, white dogfighting and urban, hip-hop.

A woman from the United Kennel Club notes:

"It's important to understand that this isn't about race, but it is about culture."
Russell Simmons says, regarding the presence of pit bulls in hip-hop and rap culture:
"That's why we have poets, have always had poets and artists in society, to say things that sometimes people don't say otherwise."
In this case, I think it's a bit of the "poets" reflecting society and society trying to emulate said "poets" the same time.

I don't get it. We're supposed to be fighting over there, so we don't fight them over here. In an article on about the doctors/terrorists in the U.K., noted:

Terrorism analyst Marco Vicenzino, the director of the Global Strategy Project, says the world could be seeing a shift in jihadist tactics.

Confident after wounding the United States and its allies in Iraq, jihadists "are determined to take their combat experience directly to the superpower and its allies at home and around the world," Vicenzino said.
Fantastic. Not.
