Racial Overtones

The racial overtones of the "Obama's Sons" comment is most unfortunate and highly offensive to me.

I refuse to stoop to racial slurs. We should all be above that.

Still, I think "Pink" made a legitimate point by saying that the Hip Hop Thug Culture has created in the minds of males-- mostly young black males-- a criminal mentality. Hip Hop glorifies killing. Read the lyrics. Like "Pink," I cannot imagine how this non-music, this misogynistic and homophobic non-music has taken over our culture.

We are paying a huge price for Hip Hop's popularity by the havoc it releases on our society as a whole. And some people are paying for it with their lives.

Black leaders must condemn rap. They must attack it vociferously. Rap, I believe, represents the most violent element in our ever-expanding debased and degrading popular culture.

To put it bluntly, the consequences of Hip Hop are horrific.
