This subject seems to be at the forefront of thought for this year...so where do you think the problem originates?

Something definitely needs to be done and we (Black women) need you guys to lead the charge! Lead it brother! Lead it!

I'd certainly like to see both sexes take this kind of thing more seriously.

What has always amazed me, though, is just how many women are cool with those images and stereotypes.

I'll never forget being in a club where (and this will show how damned old I am) a song came on saying, "Big-booty hoes... bend on over and touch your damned toes!"

I thought the Black women were going to kill us all, but instead... they bent over and touched their toes. Kinda says something about who they think they are (which is cyclical, I realize).

Yo DJ I read the article on TBM blog and I agree with him.

What makes the messages in this music so reprehensible is the fact that many of these rappers where raised by single black women and then they turn around and disrespect the group of women they can count on the most.

The rappers spewing the negative messages need to change the content of their message.

Well, as ya'll know, I'm kinda old school, I believe in chivarly and I believe that men and women are equal, but men are at base responsible for the community.

ADAM was supposed to tell EVE better, so the ONUS (per Ami Angelwings) is on HIM. As as our great grand dad was responsible, so are the Brothas now.

:O What about some of the fundamentalist Muslim cultures? :\

I do agree with you btw :D I just thought that degradation of women is pretty bad in some other countries too :(

Oh! And it's spelt onus :D


I do definitely think that the way black women are portrayed in hip hop (and so many other forms of media) needs to change completely. I am finding myself moved by this post by another blogger. Have you read this? http://assaultonblacksanity.blogspot.com/2007/05/monsters-ball.html

Dang Ami, so the ONUS was on me to spell it right!

lol

Guess the Wisdom of Zehuti doesn't do to well with Grammar lol

As I have said before, DJBA, I feel you on this.

We, as a community have to stop spending our money on this garbage. When we do that, the record companies will listen. When the companies listen, the rappers will listen to their companies... or they won't work/get paid.

Hit them in their wallets.

No disrespect but since W/we had this talk before and W/we generally feel the same (except w/ a few differences here and there in regard to semantics), what is everyone doing on an individual basis to aid in stopping this? And I'm not talking about not buying music that you probably never bought anyway. I'm curious...

@Verb:

Well, it was hard for ME personally to stop buying Lil John, T-Pain, Mike Jones, Young Jeezy...I mean come on, the PRODUCTION alone is hard for me to resist. Really, how can the likes of DJ Premier, the Roots, the RZA, etc. compete with that?

Crunk forever!! But alas, I must now be confined to do without it....how will I survive WITHOUT hearing about my favorite rap artist being "In Love With a Stripper"? How will I ever know if someone ever "Let Them Walk"? What if I get caught "Ridin' Dirty", will I be able to relate without these artist telling my story?

Bwaahahahahahahahaha!
