Yesterday, we posted our article titled “Niggery: When Will The Bafoonery & Coonery End?” In that article we addressed the lack of positive and empowering images and messages in hip hop and the media.
We ended the article, by informing you that Google, would be having their first ever global debate on hip hop culture.
The debate takes place today, and is expected to ask the following questions:
Is hip-hop the authentic voice of the oppressed that turns anger into poetry and political action? Or is it a glorification of all that holds back oppressed minorities and hinders them from mainstream assimilation?
People scheduled to be included in the debate are, Professor Michael Eric Dyson, Reverend Jesse Jackson, KRS-One, Estelle, and ?uestlove just to name a few. This should be a very interesting discussion. We encourage everyone to watch!
