What about artist such as the roots,common, de la soul, blackstar? I am tired of idiots like this generalizing a whole form of music simple based on the strength of one part.

We do not control radio,TV, or any other form of distrubution, black people do not control their own image.
some people want to see blacks as pimps,thugs, hustlers etc. That is all they have ever been taught about blacks in the ghetto,we make it bad for ourselves by listening to gangsta rap and doing drugs or having sex.

There is a bigger picture no one will admitt and everyone trys to overlook and this guy does a excellent job of overlooking the obvious.
