Pink shirted, smiling, and with “white friends”; Jay-Z was spotted leaving the Robin Thicke Birthday Party at the Waverly Inn. In a recent interview Hov said that race relations going so well in America are largely credited to him and Snoop:
JAY-Z has credited hip-hop with improving race relations across America – because white kids who idolize him and SNOOP DOGG don’t become racists….… The rapper insists there’s too much negativity about the musical genre and its related culture – and few dwell on the good it’s done. He explains, “It has changed America immensely… Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations. “Racism is taught in the home… and it’s very hard to teach racism to a teenager who idolises, say, Snoop Dogg. It’s hard to say, ‘That guy is less than you.’ The kid is like, ‘I like that guy, he’s cool. How is he less than me?’ “That’s why this generation is the least racist generation ever. You see it all the time. Go to any club. People are intermingling, hanging out, enjoying the same music.”
Hov has a valid point. Now, if we can shake the thug mentality that plagues our men, we will continue to progress.
