Why do young males appear overly concerned with manhood and violence?
Do you think that violence in the hip-hop music industry promotes violence in real life? Or maybe it is completely wrong; what is entertainment, remains just entertainment meaning the violence proliferated in the music videos is just another item to increase the sale of the product?
Is violence against women a major concern for women of color? Should it be or must we deal with violence and poverty in black communities before we speak about sexism?
Who do you think is most responsible for the sexist images appearing in the music industry, males or females? Do females contribute with their roles as “scantily clothed” and easily offered individuals?
Who makes the most profit in the industry? Do you think black males have a say in what kind of music gets proliferated? If you are a black male in the hip-hop music industry and you know that what sells best is a hardcore violent video with sexually objectified women appearing in the background, would you feel comfortable going through with it knowing that your children sooner or later will be able to access the song?
