imus, music, culture, trends

16 04 2007

so, i typically avoid blogging too much about the mainstream media stuff, but I found this to be interesting…

with the recent events that have taken place over at MSNBC and CBS Radio regarding Imus, now there’s an uprising where people are seeing the hypocrisy of some of the mainstream music out there – i won’t restrict it to just rap however, as most in the media are doing, because it’s really across the musical spectrum.

for once in my life, i’m going to say i agree with the reverend al sharpton with this statement alone – “The Reverend Al Sharpton, talking about Imus and other entertainers, says it’s time to show the media and the public that it is not necessary to be misogynist and racist to be creative or to be commercial in this country.”

thanks to mark batterson for providing this quote – “Give me the making of the songs of a nation and I care not who writes its laws.” – so true…

also, written by an 18th century Scottish thinker – Andrew Fletcher…isn’t amazing how in the 18th century that was true as it is today – will we ever learn?

think about it…let me know what you think.
