What do you think about this guys? Essence magazine has launched a campaign to end the negative images of black women portrayed in rap videos and rap music. I support Essence 110 percent. This in my opinion, should have been started by the NAACP, but we all know how useless they've become. My question is, where are the black men in this fight. Why do the black men allow the image of our women to be trashed all over the world just because lil (no talent) Jon has a good beat on that track? Or is it because rappers are black men we have some kind of warped loyalty to them? If rock music started having "step n fetchit" or "Amos and Andy" type characters in it's videos would we stand for that? Brothers, don't you think it's time we had the sisters backs on this? Rap is being manipulated by devils and they're using black men ( rappers ) most of which are misguided idiots who could care less about the black race let alone black women, and turning them into whores on a global stage. It's real brothers, is it time to go to war with our sisters on this?
