In reply to: Chuck D: Hip-hop is everywhere, but needs work »

November 28, 2012

[quote]The hip-hop that Chuck D remembers was "look out and love" music that preached "we shall overcome" and took direction from the civil rights movement.
Instead, he said, the entertainment industry turned hip-hop into a saggy-pant caricature of its former power.
“These images are perpetuated by the media,” he said.[/quote]

So the founder of a group named "Public Enemy" is concerned with the negative direction and image of today's "hip hop" music?

Really?

How much was this "elder statesman of rap" compensated for his "wisdom" and by whom?

Perhaps next year, Madonna will be invited to share frankly her concerns regarding the over-sexualization of the entertainment industry.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
