I think it is great that you guys included the birth of Rap in the rememberance of Black History. Despite the negative publicity Rap often receives, it's an invention of Afro-Americans that is so celebrated in the Black community.This celebration gives hope and ,in some cases, Knowledge to millions of Black youth who find themselves in situation similar to the M.C.'s rap.

Problem is the "knowledge" often denigrates women, encourages disrespect for authority, glamorizes a life of crime, and emphasizes material possession.

I have no problem with folks proud of this music. However, I wish they wouldn't "share" it with me 24/7 from car speakers that shake my house off the foundation. Please stop!
