Tonya,

I noticed the classism as well. I mean, the young women of Spellman are lovely. But Snoop said he's NOT talking about women like them and those of Rutgers. Truth is, he hardly even KNOW the kinds of sistas who are mostly able to attend those schools.

And I believe of all the people involved with yesterday's Oprah show, the Entertainment Attorney (I don't recall his name) made the most salient, profound points. Because he mentioned how all facets of the environment that surround hip-hop - the artist/producer, record companies, media companies, customers, etc. - result in what we see. Yet we place all the focus and blame on artists.

But then, it ain't like we don't have lots of practice with blaming everything on Black men.


Btw: I wonder whether the fine young sistas of Spellmen have confronted the presidents of BET and MTV with their concerns about hip-hip. Both of them are Black WOMEN.
