Socially conscious rap and hip hop may be making a comeback, but it seems to be doing so at the expense of stereotyping and bigotry. Videos like Read a Book
(hilarious) and Serve Below Zero
may be intended to send a “good” message to the black community, but it’s hard to ignore blatant racist undertones (or overtones) in the lyrics and images.
Bomani Armah (aka D’mite and notarapper), who wrote and performs "Read a Book," maintains that it is not racism, but satire. Jesse Jackson
and CNN feel otherwise
Kinda makes me pine for the simpler days of Fantastic Voyage
Warning: YouTube linkfest.
