    Hey Family!

    Do you think that the exploitation of Music Video is necessary? Do yuo think that it should continue? Why or why not? And is it worth the increase?

    I'm not really sure on this one. On one hand I think it needs to stop because our children are growing up seeing this and they are imitating it. The young girls are starving them self to look like the girl in the video and it seems that, that's all they want to do. Then young men are seeing these videos and I think the reality of what a female actually look like is distorted because they see the girls in the video and expect females to be this way.

    On the other hand being a video girl is a job and it does employ alot of dancers, models, people that just trying to be seen for bigger things Like J. Lo so if you take those jobs away there will be more people out of work and as bad as the enconomy is it will just make things worst.

    Yes they are terrible and meaningless. Do much more harm than good.

    Peace,



    That ish is madd degrading. Women portraying themselves as harlots just to get some exposure. Yes J-lo did start off that way and Jamie Fox didn't let us forget that :wink: . Then you have many young girls imulating these women, running around in the street half naked, believing that this is what men want and how a woman should act...

    my greatest issue is that they are so boring and repetitious.
    hip hop must be the most uncreative music in the world.
    it's all the same all the time.

    i stopped looking at BET because i couldn't stand to see one more lady doing exactly what the lady before her had done.

    all these years and the cats haven't even discovered triple meter yet.
    it's so boring. :puke:

    How can you make a Difference in dancing in a Music Video? By getting up closer on the brotha? How close can you get?

    My biggest problem is that younger girls are emulating this nonsense thinking that they will get n****s off the street off of this. There are more street sistahs going into it than dancers. I do not like having to witness young sistahs degrading themselves. That is why I don't watch BET and that is why I stay far away from prostitution and the strip clubs and stuff like that. I cannot stand to see beautiful sistahs degrading themselves. They are too hooked on the almight dollar, and not focused on the reputation. I am sorry, but I cannot commend a sistah for wearing bearly any clothes and moaning and what not on a musix video. I cannot commend her for that.
