I agree! I miss the MONIE LOVES, the QUEEN LATIFAHS, the MC LYTES, Roxanne SHANTE, and many other positive female rappers that represented their power and awareness to empowered women, as well as men like me as well. Today, Female rappers and RNB singers dress like SLUTZ, knowing that they are being WATCHED and EDUCATED by the many little girls in our Country and our world. I'm not saying that women shouldn't dress unveiling. What I'm saying is that they should set an example and educated little girls in a positive way so they can grow.
Hip Hop today downgrades women to an degree higher than ny point in hip hop history. These big Corporations want to keep all poor women of color as well as poor whites POWERLESS. If it isn't boot shaken in videos, it's women talking about relationships. LIFE IS ALOT MORE than RELATIONSHIPS. They should be educating the kids, as well as these male RAPPERS who's mainstream.
But me and my colleagues in the corporate world dosen't want that. That's why cartoons, education, music, even our news media is dumbing you down even as you speak. NWO 4 life.
